Stopped here for a night in a family room & found the hotel to be just as I expected. Plenty of free car parking for guests, excellent reception staff, room was clean & comfortable, & buffet breakfast was decent. I've stayed at other Holiday Inn Expresses & this was as good as any of the rest I have stayed at.

Visited the hotel as bought as part of Alton Towers package. Room was fine for 2 adults and 2 small children, however sofa bed folding mechanism was exposed and daughter hurt herself on it so quite dangerous for small kids! Breakfast was great, but no bacon?! Staff fine and good location.
