Booked this hotel as part of a LastMinute.com package with a 2 day pass to Alton Towers. After reading up on all the other hotels on offer (and not being entirely impressed by others comments) I settled on the 'supposed' 2 star Express By Holiday Inn, Burton-upon-Trent. But upon arriving I can say this is definitely NOT a 2 star, it's easily 3 and a half.
We had 2 rooms, both were presented well, nice decor and fittings. Very comfy bed, LCD TV, good sized bathroom and A/C.
I don't think there is a restaurant on site, but there is a very good pub (just refurbished, very nice) about 30m away. And for those who want a Big Mac, there's a McD's across the road.
The hotel is sort of on the outskirts of the town, but we were so tired from the awesome day at Alton Towers, we had dinner at the pub and went straight to bed.
Breakfast was included, and whilst there was no full English on offer, the toast & muffins & cereal was adequate.
