“good value, great for snowdome, pleasant rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

The hotel is ideally located for snowdome visits, within easy walking distance of tenpin bowling (booking essential at weekend), and the ventura retail park (m and s, outfit, new look, boots etc.).
We found the staff pleasant and helpful and young. The choice at breakfast was good, but as it's express the range of hot food is limited. Plenty of pastries, bread and fruit choice. Rooms a good size and pleasantly decorated.
No evening meals available over the weekend we stayed but take out menus available in reception and several restaurants available in town.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your feedback.

It is great to hear positive comments especially when it comes to our team.
We are delighted you found the choice of the breakfast selection to be adequate. We are in the process of planning to change out evening meal times and planning to extend it throughout the week.

I hope to see you again when you can all dine in house.

I have stayed in this hotel more than 40 nights over a few years
The rooms are nice and modern and always clean and fresh
The food in the hotel is just ok if you don't want to go out
As with all hotels the main thing about them is the staff good or bad
In this case it's all good, they are very friendly an helpful

Regarding your comments about the food, we are aware of our limits and are trying to improve however we will be never be able to compete with full service hotels.

I hope to see you back again soon and you will find in the upcoming month an improved food option.

Our family (2 adults and 1 three year old) stayed here in December as part of a family trip to local attractions. The reception staff were courteous and helpful upon arrival and departure. The room was pleasant and importantly, very clean. There was a nice modern bathroom with an excellent shower and plenty of hot water. Breakfast was ideal for a family with small children - informal and a surprising selection to choice from. I have read other reviews which suggest the breakfast has little choice and is rather basic. We thought that for a budget hotel the breakfast was perfect and there was something for everyone. We would definitely stay here again if in the area for a simple overnight stay.

The reception staff are quite elusive and could be a bit more welcoming and friendly.The room was comfortable with a nice bathroom,The room was cleaned on both days we stayed. We were visiting the Snowdome which is right next door. The hotel is in an ideal location right next door, and is near a nice park and shops. The hotel should have some leaflets on display, advertising the various activities and places of interest on their doorstep, sadly these are lacking and would be so helpful for visitors. We would visit this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ask for room with lakeside view.

Only stayed here due to visiting some friends in Tamworth already stayed at the travelodge but they were fully booked so checked in here plus i am a priority club card holder.

Don't have anything to comment really great service parking also its next to a retail park so you can shop bars are just mins walk away room clean tidy also another great plus is this is next to good motorway links.

I will just say one thing but not really a bad point not really much in the way for veggie choice @ breakfast but there was lots of other things to eat.i would use this hotel again without fail.

Very happy with this hotel, clean, free parking for priority club members, great location for Thomasland and some reasnable shopping in tamworth within a couple of minutes. Breakfast was very busy and there was a bit of a line but staffed coped well. Would recommend. Think the room we had is due a new mattress, seen better days and was a bit lumy but did not stop a good nights sleep.

We booked 2 rooms for the family to visit the Snowdome. We were very pleased with both the location and the hotel. Rooms were clean and well decorated.
My only criticism is that the breakfast serving area is too small for the amount if people using it and you frequently had to wait for the servery to be replenished. Although in day 2 they ran out of rolls completely. Bacon would also be a plus at breakfast.
We would stay again.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for staying with us in the Holiday Inn Express Tamworth.
Thank you for your comments regarding breakfast. We admit it can be hectic during busy weekends and school holidays when we have larger amount of people occupying the rooms. Our kitchen team is working hard to make sure the service is fast and everything replenished in timely manner.
I am sorry if you had to wait, and that we have run out of bedroll.
