“Short break”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

Stayed in a family room for one night after Alton Towers.

Didn't realise Alton Towers was so far away but hotel itself was spotless. Rooms nice and big enough for a family of 4. Minor criticism was the heat - like a sauna - but we did get and use a fan. Staff were excellent and free breakfast an added bonus and I was more than impressed.

Facing the hotel is a Chinese and Fayre and Square restaurant where we ate. Chain restaurant and bar but did us. Wacky warehouse there too but you have to pay.

All in all a pleasant stay and would stay again

Stayed here for three nights with my niece and nephew for Alton Towers, the hotel was great and what you expect from a Holiday Inn Express with added extras. The staff were great and very helpful and friendly, even supplying lollipops for the kids when using the small games room. Breakfast was good and plentiful and much more than I expected for a free breakfast. Hotel was clean and bright, easy to find and ideally located as a base to get to Alton Towers. Would recommend and definitely stay here again.

I'd highly recommend a stay here for any short breaks. I stayed recently for a night while taking my son to Alton Towers.
It was easy enough to find straight from the M6. Ample free parking. Receptionist was lovely friendly and very helpful with advice on evening meals.
The room was very clean and really comfortable and the bed was perfect just the way we like it nice and soft.
Tv in the room and kettle with tea and coffee.
The breakfast in the morning was great and plenty to chose from.

There is a lovely chinese restaurant opposite which we went too and the meal was lovely and very reasonably priced. There is also a pub next door.
Overall I literally couldn't fault it for target audience they are after being an express holiday inn.

I rated the swimming pool and fitness centre as average because they don't have one.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 115 and I was happy with the first floor and facing the car park so I could overloo...

Stayed here on 15th June to break our journey from Manchester Airport and our home. Arrived after midnight to find a really comfortable and clean room. The staff were very friendly and our check-in was quickly done so we could get to bed swiftly. The breakfast was of good quality and the selection excellent. We have stayed here previously and would certainly stay here again. We would recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Stayed 1 night in a family room which was a large king bed and a double sofa bed for the kids.

The room was very adequate for a family of 4. A bit cramped when the sofa bed was made up but a good size once it was put back!

The room was clean and bedding of good standard! The sofa bed springs were fine for children/teenagers! The king bed mattress was adequate! We all got a good nights sleep!

The bathroom although compact was adequate - it had a toilet with a door that closed it off from the rest of the bathroom, a powerful enough roomy shower cubicle and small sink and unit! All very clean and towels big and fluffy!

Very important for our kids was the free wifi that had a good signal in all areas if the hotel.

Tea and coffee making facilities with refills available from the lobby. We had to borrow an ironing board and iron which was also fine! The hair dryer was adequate too!

The tv was limited and although sky news channel no bbc news channel. The kids channel was cbeebies only!

The only down side of the room was that it was very warm - the hotel had already put fans in all the rooms which helped a bit!

Free breakfast was great! Tea/coffee/fruit juice etc - hot food was beans, scrambled eggs and sausages which all tasted fine! Toast available along with croissants and pastries and rolls. Choice of cereal and fruit and yoghurts. All help yourself buffet style but topped up regularly!

There is a small kids room with tv and drawing etc in which was a nice touch! In the lounge area was plenty of seats and TV showing the sports - rugby, football etc!

All the staff were very friendly!

For us it was perfect for visiting family with it being less than 10 mins from Stafford town centre!

We felt it was a great family option and very good value for money considering everything that it included! It's not 4* but def better than a Travelodge!!

We would use this hotel again!!

Just returned from a 2 night stay. Very impressed with room, free breakfast and free wifi. Breakfast was an excellent selection of fruit, cereals, yogurts, etc and hot buffet was sausage, scrambled eggs and beans. All were replenished constantly. Excellent selection of teas and coffees . Tea/ coffee sachets for use in the room could be replenished at will and there was an ice making machine in the reception area! Only downside is that the rooms are not air conditioned, they do have a fan, but in my estimation this is not ideal, too noisy and a consistent room temperature is impossible especially during the night. Only other slight issue was the fact that I could not log in to the wifi from my room. I could do this in reception and then return to my room and wifi connection would be fine. Don't know if this could be sorted by management but I did mention it. Overall, very good value for money and would definitely stay here again if visiting the area.

Room Tip: Our roomier looked the back f the hotel and was on the first floor. No noise issues during the night...

We only stayed one night, and it was a really nice quiet hotel that did everything right. It's not particularly fancy but you have everything you need and it's very clean. The staff were very helpful and you could ask for any extras - I always want more tea than I get provided with normally, and this was no problem. Also a very nice breakfast - lots of variety and restocked promptly even though it was really busy. Would stop over here again.
