Holiday Inn Express Tamworth

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 October 2013

If you're looking for a clean comfortable bed, simple stay and no extra thrills while visiting Tamworth, then you can't go wrong with the Holiday Inn Express. Situated right in the center, it's super convenient and only 5 min walk from the train station and looks right on to the lake.

You can get a discount for the hotel if you've booked a session at the Snowdome next door too.

Stayed here recently for 3 nights with my husband and 2 young boys for a trip to nearby Drayton Manor and Thomas Land. After a long 6 hour journey from Scotland we arrived at the hotel. Check in was quick although the girl checking us in (can't remember her name but know her badge said trainee) failed to provide us with any information at all about the hotel, all that was mentioned was our room number I had to return to reception to enquire what time breakfast was served at. She also failed to mention about the wifi facility in the hotel and it wasn't until the next evening that we noticed a sign about it in reception. This was rather disappointing as we had just been using our mobile data. Perhaps better training is required for the check in procedures?
Apart from that, we encountered friendly staff who were very helpful, Especially one lady on reception who went to the trouble of printing off a map for us of restaurants that she recommended in the local area. Breakfast was good with plenty of selection and replenished often. The rooms were nice and clean and the hotel not too noisy.
Would recommend for a budget break away and would return as it certainly provides value for money.

Room Tip: There is smoking and non smoking rooms at this hotel

Booked into this hotel by my company, reception very welcoming though a little slow, needs more staffing, room was very clean and spacious. Bathroom very modern and well kept with a large shower cubical. Location was also very good within walking distance of the town centre which is where my colleagues walked to enjoying an evening meal.
Being next to the lake made a late evening walk and early morning a refreshing experience.

Let's face it, you know what your getting when you stay at a Holiday Inn Express. I only stayed for one night and the Room was very clean and well kept and even though I was on the top floor the shower in the bathroom had a decent amount of pressure that got the job done.
Staff were very friendly and helpful and explained everything very efficiently at check in.
I didn't have the evening meal in the hotel choosing to go to the restaurant in the retail park over the road and only had breakfast in the morning avoiding the cooked breakfast opting for the healthy choice instead. The cooked option looked great though and plenty of people were tucking in fairly heartily. Was set up buffet style too so you are able to help yourself if you have a big appetite.
Plenty of car parking, with a barrier controlled exit and the hotel itself is in a lovely setting beside a lake and not too far from the train station.
In summary, good value for money, nice staff and nice rooms.

I have stayed at this hotel regularly for two years; it is consistently clean, friendly and efficient. Easy parking is a bonus plus it is well positioned for all local amenities (a good few of which are easy walking distance). I use it for business purposes but wouldn't hesitate to use it for domestics purposes.

Stayed here for 1 night, for friends 30th party. Hotel comes across clean and modern. Room was a good size double with sofa. Bathroom was spacious with large shower cubicle, the shower was really good! Only grumble was breakfast, it was chaotic and busy and didn't seem that organised, didn't hang about to try it.
