My husband and I stayed here for one night on Saturday 4th August 2012. We had booked a room to coincide with his birthbay and a revisit to The National Memorial Arboretum to pay our respects. When we arrived we were greeted by a delightful lady called Naomi. After explaining about their 'good nights sleep' policy and asking us if we wanted to book a table at the restaurant next door etc she asked about the nature of our visit. My husband explained it was his birthday thus we were having a weekend away to celebrate and we were paying a return visit to the National Memorial to pay our respects to some friends who we had lost in recent conflics and we had originally visited the site not long after it had first opened and we wanted to see how it had developed. Naomi wished my husband a very happy birthday and delt with our request for her to book us a taxi to take to a local restaurant efficiently. Later as we left she wished a pleasent evening. When we returned later after our meal and a few drinks we found an envelope had been pushed under the door. It was a birthday card written by Naomi on behalf of all the reception staff hoping we'd had a lovely evening and wishing us a dry day at the Arboretum and a very safe journey home. Naomi is a credit to the hotel and if the rest of the staff are half as friendly and efficient as she then the manager of this hotel has a superstar team working for him. Nothing was too much bother and the hotel was spick and span. It was a pleasure to stay there and we would certainly stay again and recommend it to any of our friends should they be heading in this direction and need a place to stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Premier Inn Tamworth South. The UK's fist greenest hotel bringing together the best environmental initiatives to help us towards a greener future. With our 20 ensuite bedrooms, flat screen free view TVs, adjoining restaurant (The Centurion Table Table), Air-cooling and 24hr reception.We are one of a very select few that is a Green Hotel. Here is why we are Green.1)We heat and cool the hotel using the earth's natural energy using a special underground pump. Four heat probes, 130 metres below our hotel, take advantage of the earths natural energy to dump heat in the summer and cold in the winter.2) Re-using water. All toilet flushes use grey (recycled) water - water re-used from showers and baths plus 50% of rainwater from the roof. This provides 100% off all toilet water and will save 20% of the entire water usage.3) Sustainable wool from British sheep is used in the walls creating exceptionally efficient thermal and acoustic insulation. Heat loss of the hotel is reduced by 60%4) Solar power. Solar panels have been used on the hotel's south facing roof. They can produce hot water to the system with almost no energy used. The system is expected to generate 11.740kWhr per year - enough for 1000 baths a year!5) All lighting is low energy thanks to LED's that produce high light levels while only using 5 Watts per bulb, this coupled with motion detectors means the lights are not left on. An 80% saving against standard lighting methods.6) All materials used are locally and sustainable sources. Timber is used rather than concrete where possible and when concrete is used it is a low cement that has been locally sourced. Our use of carbon has been reduced by using natural resources, sustainable materials, such as external timber cladding, and recycled materials, such as plasterboard and rendering. ... more less
