“Business in Tamworth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Excellent hotel - ideally located for working in the area. The hotel could not have been easier to find and the on-site parking was very good. Stayed on two separate occasions now and have the third stay booked. All the staff are very friendly - especially Mandy, the rooms I have stayed in (7 and 12 so far) have been of a good size and the breakfast is well-presented and plentiful. I have eaten in Christopher's Restaurant twice in the evening and the food was exceptional both times. This hotel is a real find. The only reason I've not given 5/5 is the water pressure is too low for a decent shower.

Summary: lovely town, lovely hotel.

Room Tip: Not had a bad one yet!

Stayed for 1 night on 2 separate occasions. On both occasions we found staff very nice and helpful, food (breakfast) was plentiful and well presented. All very clean. Plenty of room in the bedrooms and again very clean. Parking on site at the back of building so no worries there. Great place for short stay.

The aldergate is a very nice hotel with friendly staff. It is on a main room but if u ask for a side room or back room it is not a problem. The rooms were clean and of a good size. The breakfast was good with lots of choice. There is a information center across the road who were very helpfull in finding something to do and eat.but u can eat at hotel. It is walk away from the town centre.Would recommend this hotel for a short stay to explore this area. We went to twycrss zoo it was great.

Room Tip: ask for a back or side room and not on ground floor.

My wife, son (2yrs) & I stayed for 1 night 12/08/13 for Thomas Land at Drayton Manor. Booked B&B Twin Room (double & a single - Room 15) through Laterooms.com. Easy to find and ideally 6-7 minutes down the road from Drayton Manor. Parked in their off road secured overnight car park. Mandy was extremely helpful and friendly upon our arrival and could not do more to make the restaurant available to us as soon as was possible to feed our hungry son. We ate a very nice meal, and our room was very clean, quiet, comfortable & perfect for a 2 yr old with a shower/bath option. Aircon is slow but I put this on before we went to dinner & slept with it overnight & it was fine. Breakfast also very good. Absolutely no complaints & happy to recommend. Rooms located up steep stairs so not ideal if physically impaired or elderly. Would stay again. Thank you

When coming to the hotel, it seemed nice. The rooms were nice but a few things were wrong, air con did not work and it was the hottest weekend to arrive, the towel rail fell off and the curtain pole fell off too, saying that the room was still nice and the beds were comfortable.

We recently stayed here as we were visiting family in the area. We found the room we stayed in (7) to be modern with flat screen TV & air conditioning. A must with the weather we have recently had. The room was of adequate size and so was the bathroom. I have to mention that the towels are enormous! Both my husband and I are not "racing snakes" so usually find it difficulty with the towels in most hotels but not here so "Thank you" for that. Yes the steps are steep up to the rooms but your only going to walking up them a couple of times if you are staying overnight so hey hum! We arrived for breakfast with 3 minutes to spare(it finishes at 9.30) but this was not a problem. The staff were quite happy to take our order for a full english and scrambled egg on toast with a slice of bacon(delicious) with extra toast and tea. Whilst having breakfast we found out a bit more about the hotel and what they have planned for the very near future. Dominos leash it about to run out and they are planning to move the restaurant to where they are and keep the present restaurant as their reception as this is where you check in at present. I can definitely say that when we visit family there again we will be staying at The Peel. Thank you guys for a very pleasant stay.

This review is regarding the restaurant only. We were there for a dinner.
On arrival it was a bit confusing as to where to go in,On entering we found that the party table nearly filled the room and felt we were imposing on the other diners, who may have wanted a quiet meal.The room is also the bar and reception. This caused some problems later when people wanted to checkin with their cases making it difficult for service.
We had preordered the meals and the starters were fine, however many of the party had ordered the steak, this came with ample and tasty veggies and they were hot and well cooked. However the steaks were covered with a very strong peppery sauce. The vast majority of the party left some or all of this steak. Not sure the chef had tasted it before smothering the good meat with it? The staff picked this up and some enjoyed a plain steak which tasted very nice indeed. Normally the sauce for the steak is served in a small gravy boat, this would have alleviated the problem. The staff were fine and tried hard to make it a smooth evening for all the diners. I understand that this capacity difficulty may change when the hotel is able to retake possession of the whole of the building and this will be a lot better. Personally I think there was not enough space and so the ambiance suffered, especially as it was Bar/Reception./Restaurant all in the same room. As an aside another table had ordered tagliatelle and queried the colour as it was a dark colour , maybe there was something missing from the dairy?

Dear Reviewer

Thank you very much for bringing your party to the restaurant and for taking the time to leave such a detailed review. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

You are right in pointing out that we currently have only one space which serves as restaurant and reception. Unfortunately sometimes this can lead to some congestion if guests are booking in after 7pm, as the room is not very large and the restaurant normally rather busy in the evenings. I am sorry you felt this negatively impacted on your experience.

We are pleased to tell you that things are changing soon though, and we are opening a new larger restaurant at the front of the building with a separate reception area within the next twelve months.

The choice of steak ordered is described as ‘Sirloin steak served with a four peppercorn sauce’ and our style of cooking means that the steak is served with the sauce already on. I am sorry to hear that many of your party would have preferred their steaks plain or with the sauce separate. Had we known, we would have done this for you.

I am looking into how we can improve our menu descriptions to make it more clear to our guests what to expect. Our team of chefs are very versatile and we pride ourselves in being able to provide whatever our customers would like. I am pleased to hear that new steaks were provided to you on request at no extra charge and hope that there was as little interruption to the flow of your meal as possible.

As for the Tagliatelle being eaten on an adjacent table, the guest in question has eaten with us before and the dish they ordered has recently changed, so was not quite as they expected in presentation. I am assured they enjoyed it very much though.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback, and for choosing us for your party’s meal. I hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to Christopher’s restaurant again in the future.

Yours sincerely

Christopher J Gill
Manager
