“GOOD GAME - GOOD GAME”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

The Peel Hotel Aldergate, which is home to Christopher's Restaurant, is a hidden gem in the heart of Tamworth. The best clue as to location is virtually opposite the bus garage! Last Saturday (January 26), I was one of a party of 6 who were priviledged to enjoy the Gourmet Game Evening. It was food of the very highest quality. There were 7 Game Courses and a superb sweet for £35. In short form, the game used were (1) Mixed pheasant, partridge & guinea fowl terrine (2) Quenelles of rainbow trout mousse (3) Tandoori Quail (4) Half an oven roasted partridge (5) Saddle of rabbit (6) Individual game keepers pie (7) Venison medallions. The sauces were out of this world, the service attentive and very friendly, the atmosphere relaxed, the wine list varied and not unreasonable. We stayed over after blitzing the wine list. Our room was large, beautifully furnished with the usual 4* features of large plasma tv, coffee making facilities and a well fitted en-suite. The beds were very comfortable and although facing the front, there was no apparent noise from passing traffic. Breakast on Sunday morning was also a culinary gem. My friends all managed the Full English - which looked superb - but my appetite only left room for smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Probably the best salmon I have ever tasted. Christopher's normal menu is varied with an abundance of choice to suit all tastes. What is apparent is that the ingredients are sourced locally (where possible) and are of the very highest quality. Because of the size of the Restaurant, booking is essential for most evenings. There are currently about 25 covers but it is planned to expand this to 40. I cannot wait for the next themed evening. They are usually on the last Saturday of each month. If you cannot justify going to Birmingham or London for a Michelin starred Restaurant - go to Christopher's - it is the nearest you will get to culinary heaven. Good Game - Good Game!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are excellent but I think those towards the rear are quieter - although I had no pr...

We attended the 'Game' gourmet food evening and it was superb! First class food, service and a very clean and comfortable room. What a great idea to have themed evenings throughout the year with locally sourced ingredients and good wines.

Breakfast is wonderful and I look forward to the next visit.

Just had a 2 night stay at this hotel with friends. Was a lovely clean hotel and although our friends room was small and ours had a some road noise it had everything we needed. The staff were so friendly and could not do enough to make our stay a success. The food in the restaurant was really excellent - we needed to stay a few more nights to work our way through the menu!!!!!!! Really good value if ever in the area again would stay there.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms at back of hotel away from the road-lower numbers are at the back.

We have just arrived home from a 2 night stay in this wonderful hotel. The rooms were spotless. All of the staff were friendly but efficient. The food, well what can I say? You would struggle to beat this in any top London hotel. There were 6 of us in our party and we ate there both nights. It was delicious. Our Grandchildren who are 14 and 11 both enjoyed and ate every bit of it. Also the breakfasts were good value and plentiful. Please do not be put off by the look of The Peel for what it lacks in kerb appeal it more than makes up for in its service, food and accommodation. Will definitely be staying here again.

Looks can be deceiving. When you approach the hotel you see a chain pizza place and think....oh heck. However, once you negotiate the small car park, the hotel is a nice place.
The rooms are of good size and are clean,tidy and comfertable.
The food in the restaurant is first class as is the level of service you get.
Breakfast again is excellent.
If your after a small friendly hotel in the centre of Tamworth, then this is the place to be.

The hotel is ideally situated in the centre of the town although it is on a main road. We had a room overlooking the main road but this was fine. The room was spotless, the beds were comfy, plenty of room for clothes - water in the room was appreciated. Shower wasn't very powerful but it was adequate. A fridge in the room would have been useful but was not a problem. We were very warmly welcomed and all the staff seemed very friendly. The lady at breakfast was very efficient yet really friendly. Breakfast was spot on - well done Boris! You could tell the food was fresh and a good standard - as much toast, coffee and juice as you wanted and whatever combination of breakfast you wanted was possible which shows how accommodating they were. Don't be put off by the Domino's - wasn't an issue. The location fo the hotel is ideal for lots - the Snow Dome (brilliant!!), the cinema, bowling etc. Use the taxi service recommended by the hotel - Bennetts. Several bars and restaurants within close proximity - something for everyone. Thanks to the staff - we were very happy!

OK, plus points first. Very friendly staff who really wanted to be helpful; clean room, good shower with a real cubicle, decent bed and a good breakfast.

But don't look at the rating and expect a four star hotel, because this is definitely only worth three. The room was small, and like several others faces one of the busier roads in the town. The car park is narrow and a bottleneck; it was a good job I thought to ask other residents to shuffle their cars around, otherwise I would have been unable to leave the next morning. I would not have appreciated being disturbed before breakfast. Maybe the owners could organise an arrangement with the nearby Morrisons for overnight parking?

The price was about right, but the personal service seems to have swayed the ratings people to being a bit generous.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road and travel by train.

Dear reviewer

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and share your opinions of our accommodation with TripAdvisor readers.

I am pleased to read that you found our staff attentive, the room well cleaned, the shower to your liking and the bed comfortable. I am also pleased you enjoyed your breakfast. We pride ourselves in providing the best experience that we can with our means and I am pleased that you felt your nights stay was priced appropriately.

Your review highlights an important point. We are not a four star hotel, we are 4 star guest accommodation. If you expected a four star hotel you would have been understandably disappointed.

These days various specific classifications of accommodation have been created to give the consumer a better and more specific idea of what to expect from the accommodation they are booking. Our classification is from the nationally recognised and industry leading Visit England Quality in Tourism. Each year the hotel inspectors come out to spend a night at our accommodation and provide a detailed and through annual assessment. All our rooms meet with the inspector’s strict guidelines and all are rated as 4 star guest accommodation.

I am sorry to hear that you had trouble parking. Our car park can only accommodate twelve cars and it can get a little busy. There are two sizable public car parks within a thirty second walk that are free 6pm-8am and on Sundays.

Once again, thank you for your feedback. I hope we have the opportunity to welcome you again should you be staying in Tamworth.

Kind regards

Christopher Gill
