“No food served on Saturday or Sunday night !!!!!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Arrived about 8pm on Sunday night after travelling for over 4 hours to be told by hotel reception they no longer serve food on weekend evenings anymore. Before I had chance to blow a fuse as it was last thing I expected the guy on reception informed me that they had a list of local takeaways that my colleagues and I could order from and hotel would supply plates, cutlery etc. This allowed us to have a meal at hotel as we were all to shattered to go searching around Tamworth looking for restaurant open on sunday night. Anyway well done to reception guy from Sunderland for being so helpful and sorting us out. Question I would ask is where on hotel website does it state no food is served on weekend night. I,ve recently stayed at other Holiday Inn express hotels and not had a problem with Sunday evening dining. Is this just local arrangement !!!! If you,re planning to stay at this hotel on weekend plan to try and find a restaurant locally or prepare for takeaway. In future I will be looking for alternative hotel in area if I have to stay on Sunday night

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and our sincere apologises for not making you aware of our evening meal policy prior to arrival.

We do have an agreement with The Aspens Restaurant within The Snowdome, which is directly next door. Our Guest can receive a 10% discount off their meal.
As you state we do offer our Guests local takeaway menus. Our Guests are more than welcome to sit in our restaurant and eat.

We were pleased to read in your comments, Daniel (the guy from Sunderland) made you aware of this and we will be passing your kind comments on to him.

We trust you found the hotel and the rooms were to a high standard, and hope to welcome you again in the future.

We booked this hotel as we were attending a wedding in the area. We booked to stay for two nights and were really pleased with what we got. The reception staff who greeted us were really lovely. They were helpful and polite and gave us some good advice about the area etc. Our room was clean and a good size, with a lovely bathroom.
Breakfast was served in the reception seating area, which was really busy on the sunday morning. The breakfast wasn't great, but it was sufficient. There was cereals, pastries and toast, but a pretty limited option if you wanted a cooked breakfast. Sausages and beans seemed to be the extent of it.

Room Tip: Top tip for staying at this hotel would be to join the priority club, as then you don't have to...

Stayed last night, although the room was well presented the set up of the sofa bed for a small child was bordering on the dangerous due to the framework being very much visible and a gaping hole at the 'head' end which would not have been too difficult for a small child to fall into or to get a limb stuck which could result in serious injury, i ended up sleeping in it to prevent this from happening! Shower was excellent. Breakfast; LUDICROUS, Sausages, scrambled egg and beans were the 'hot' breakfast option. No other items were present or available. If you were/are after a 'proper breakfast' dont stay here; i wont be in future, far better selection within a mile down the road!! .

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel and I am happy to hear that you were satisfied with the room with the exception of the sofa bed.
We sincerely apologise you had problems with the sofa bed and felt it to be dangerous. We would like to reassure you that our sofa beds do meet with Health & Safety regulations. We have numerous Guests, both children and adults sleeping on these beds each week and have never suffered any injuries or mishaps.

With reference to the breakfast selection, Holiday Inn Express as a brand have a policy on 3 hot items of breakfast, sausage, scrambled eggs and baked beans. We appreciate other Guests would like other options but sadly we cannot cater for each individual due to the scale of our breakfast service. With the various continental options, including; fruit, yoghurt; cereals; pastries; toast and preserves, we would like to think that all our guests are able to have a breakfast to suit their tastes and at no extra cost.

We sorry that on this occasion we were unable to meet your needs and hope that you will choose to stay in The Holiday Inn Express in the future in order to regain your loyalty.

Stayed here when we came to the SnowDome and for a driving experience day. Staff were great, breakfast okay but had to ask for further hot items. Room clean, good facilities and well priced. Only downfall was having to go past hotel on one side of duel carriageway to come back down other.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed the location, and the hotel. We can only offer 3 hot items alongside the continental breakfast due to the Brand Standard. My sincere apologises if you had to ask for the hot items to be re-stocked.

We look forward to welcoming you again to the Hotel in the future.

We stayed after a day at Drayton Manor down the road.
After a hectic, hot busy day, after a short drive we were checked in rapidly and the room we clean and just what we needed.
The hotel was clean and well presented.
Staff were more han helpful and extremely polite.
Staying with two boys 5 and 2 the sofa bed was ideal.

Only tip is get to breakfast early as it does fill up quick. On that subject the cooked breakfast was an added bonus and set us up for the drive home.

Although we did not want to, there is a large shopping complex near by.

Well worth the £49 for the stay

We are originally from Tamworth but now live in North Wales. We booked the Holiday Inn as we were visiting family and it was great value for money compared to other local hotels. First impressions are a lovely, tastefully decorated foyer and bar area, superb, friendly and infomormative reception staff. The rooms are also very well decorated, my only fault would be they are quite dark, and you struggle to see to do make up etc, but thats only a minor fault. Breakfast was included, cereal, fruit, scrambled egg, sausage and beans. Toast and preserves etc. All in all it would have been a fantastic stay were it not for a large number of guests from South Wales who between them had excess of 10 small children and who thought it was ok for their offspring to run amok throughout the dining area and reception, bearing in mind people were carrying food an hot drinks, they were jumping on the chairs, throwing ice from the dispenser everywhere and screaming. The reception staff did there best to request that the children behave but obvisouly the parent didn't care who they upset. For this reason we will not be going back to the hotel, If any member of that party reads this review you should be ashamed of yourselves. This hotel would have got top marks if it wasn't for you.

Room Tip: If you do stay either on business or as a couple request a room away from family rooms, and ask for...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review. We are really pleased you found the hotel lovely and the team informative. We do like to hear our Guests were happy with the breakfast offer as well. We are a family hotel and during school holidays and bank holidays we have a lot of families staying with young children. I hope this will not deter you away in the future.
We would very much like you to stay with us again. Would it be possible for you to stay with us outside of the school holiday season?
Once again thank you for your comments and look forward to welcoming you back you to our Hotel again.

Booked a couple of rooms for 2 nights for 2 adults and 2 teenagers on a great deal. The rooms were very clean and the bathrooms very modern. I did complain to reception on leaving that our bed had been pretty awful - soft and rolling into the middle (wish I'd complained after the first night as didn't sleep well). My other big moan is the breakfast area - much too small for the amount of people it serves. They need to bring it out into the center of the room and always have the extra seating in the next room open - we ended up eating on living room style chairs and a little coffee table! Sort out the beds and the breakfast and they'd have a really good budget hotel.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review, your comments are much appreciated.

I am glad you found the rooms clean and modern. We acknowledge the soft beds are not to everyone’s taste. We have already purchased a number of bed boards to make these beds harder and we will be budgeting for next year to purchase more of these boards to improve the beds and, hopefully, provide a better night sleep.

During summer periods we are extremely busy with families and we have large numbers of guests staying within the hotel. We use a ticket system to try and control the number of guest coming down to breakfast at the same time. To seat the overflow in the breakfast area we also use our Conference rooms when they are not hired out. It appears during your visit our Conference rooms were actually occupied and could not be opened up.

We are working hard to resolve these issues and we hope, on your next visit you will see an improvement.

Kind Regards,
