“Overnight Business Trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2014

I and a colleague stayed here over night when on a business trip.The hotel is new and modern and the decor excellent - bright and cheery. The rooms were to a high standard and modern. The bathroom, with a walk-in shower was clean and bright. The bed was comfortable although the duvet did not come up to my neck.It was warm on a cold night.
There was free wi-fi in the room and the usual TV with in-house films for sale at a reasonable price (£9.95).
There was also a voucher for free admission to the spa and gym next door.

This would also suit a couple on holiday who wanted to make this hotel a base for trips out into the area.

Dinner was available in the dining area and although the menu was limited it was hot and edible. The wine slection was good.
Breakfast was self service and incldued a hot option as well as cereal, juices and toast - make your own on one of those conveyor toasters.

Reception was friendly and efficient. Indeed all the staff I had contact with very friendly and helpful.
There is ample parking.

Room Tip: Try to get an even numbered room, which over looks the car park and a large lake. They are quiet. Th...

Stayed here for 1 night as visiting friends in the area. Hotel staff friendly. Room clean. Bed extremely comfortable. No noise at all. Shower very powerful. Breakfast was good. Ok some may complain lack of choice in the hot food but it's not as though you're paying £10 extra. Would stay again no hesitation

Yet another room with broken heating 132 on previous weeks room 101 this weekend, with the cold wet and windy weather we are having the heating was missed.

(1) You cannot turn the air conditioning off and is very noisy

(2) Ripped bedding on double bed - As we arrived late with our young daughter after a long drive my partner said don't worry house keeping will change the bedding tomorrow. Next night either more ripped bedding or sheets not changed.

(3) the breakfast was included in the price but we ended eating out as cold sausage and beans are not to our taste.

As we often visit Tamworth I know there are similar chains near by which offer a better service and food

A couple of us went up to the SnowDome from Devon, midweek – this hotel could not have been better for our needs. 2 blokes, 2 rooms, bar, short walk into Tamworth, where there are plenty of pubs & restaurants – decent breakfast. The rooms were very clean and the staff very friendly. Does what it says on the tin. Very impressed & will use again.

I paid £39 b&b; room comfortable and clean, plenty of room; parking £1 per exit; bar; all mod cons. For that price what's not to like. Room to room sound insulation seems to be good.

Well, (a) as with all Holiday Inns, the air conditioning is noisy and you can't switch it off; (b) breakfast is very very basic; (c) there is no restaurant; the town is a good ten minutes walk away, but there is the terrible Snowdome to get a pizza in, next door if you're desperate.

For £39 I have no complaints whatever.

This hotel is very good value and ideal if you are visiting the Snow Dome as it right next door. It shares the snow dome car park so is really easy to find, just follow the Snow Dome signs when you approach Tamworth. Paying for parking is not obvious; before you leave the car park, take your ticket to hotel reception and pay your £1 there.
For the price of the hotel, I thought the buffet breakfast was good, with a choice of hot and cold food. The coffee is not too great so recommend having black coffee with some cold milk from the cereal bar.
If you want to eat out, I suggest either the Snow Dome, or if you don't mind a 10 minute walk, head into the pleasant town centre where there are several restaurants, including a budget Indian called Monsoon. To walk into town, cross the duel carriage way (there is a bridge and an underpass if you don't fancy crossing the busy road) and enter the park behind the bowling alley/shop complex on the other side. Then walk straight on up through the park to the castle and the town. Otherwise, it is a 5 minute drive to some nearby chain restaurants (ask
for directions at reception).
To summarise then, this hotel is ideal for a 1 or 2 night visit to Tamworth.
