Upon our early arrival, our room was not ready but the receptionist called up to the cleaner to find out which rooms were available, she then proceeded to switch rooms to ensure we were able to check in immediately - very friendly, very efficient and extremely professional.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by heddwyn Good stopover location
I use this HIE when travelling from south to north and/or return. It is an ideal location to break my journey. Good for me as this hotel is dog friencdy and allow my dogs in the room with me.
I don't sleep well so have marked down the sleep component, but that's me and not everyone else. Being so close to the M6 there is always going to be some outside noise, can't be avoided.
The one drawback, nothing to do with HIE, is the pub opposite, who lately have had woeful service times. Earlier this year the wait time on food was up to 90 minutes. The other day over 30 mins. Clearly they should address this but as they have a captive audience I doubt they will. The Chinese restaurant is not open Sunday despite the notice saying they are open every day.
I would recommend this HIE as a place to stay.

Part of relaxation at the end of a busy day is watching television - this wasn't possible for me due to the limited channels available.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GJLP Always good, breakfast choices much improved
We stay at this Holiday Inn Express regularly but our last stop here at the end of May was disappointing in that the food offered, both snacks and breakfast, was well below the expected standard.
We were delighted this stay to find a much improved breakfast choice, which is now of the same high standard as the welcome, the staff and comfort we have always experienced.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chris763 Nice stay but....
Overall a very nice hotel, my only criticism is it has a very small menu (that's ok), but they never had half the food advertised on the menu available. So I has an extremely limited choice.
Staff were very friendly and a pleasure

Stayed here over night as I was visiting Alton Towers for the weekend. Place was fine with options on the doorstep for food and drink. Served its purpose for us.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Colin57 Great value for money
Great hotel, used it as a base for Alton Towers visit. Nice clean room, good facilities, handy location, ample parking spaces, pub/restaurant opposite. Only average for sleep quality but that was due to the fact that the it was very warm in the room. No Air conditioning but it was a very muggy evening, can't blame the hotel!! Would definitely recommend it.

Just had 2 very good nights with lovely clean comfortable rooms, service and staff friendly. An unexpected and good selection at breakfast. Very child friendly with a small play room.
Only down side was other guests dogs barking over night in parked cars.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Khizar Great accommodation for families
We had a weekend away at Alton Towers and only wanted somewhere for 1 night. This Holiday Inn was only 26 miles away. The staff were very pleasant, the rooms were clean and it was great for families. We had a double bed and double sofa bed for the kids, which was just as comfortable. The continental breakfast was lovely. The hotel was great value for money, we would definitely stay there again.
A lovely weekend all round!!

I stayed at the holiday inn express with my husband as we were attending a wedding nearby.. The hotel was really comfortable and clean, breakfast was fine but we did have to wait for the sausages and egg to cook. I really wished they would do bacon as well.the price is really good too. We would definately stay there again

Our first visit to this Holiday Inn Express and we were delighted with all aspects of our stay (as was the dog). Staff were very helpful and friendly in providing for our needs (and those of the dog). Nothing was too much trouble and their manner was first class. The room was clean, warm and nicely furnished and equipped. breakfast was simple but plentiful and for the price we paid for the night we thought this Hotel to be exceptional value for money. Highly recommended.

The room was very clean and tidy. Unfortunately the beds and pillows let it down. The staff were incredibly helpful especially the lady at breakfast unfortunately we did not get her name but she is defiantly an asset and a good represetitve for your company

Stop off en route home. We were welcomed as Gold members, but were not given a choice of points or a drink. I had to ask when checking out for the points. Other than that the stay overnight was good, comfortable and very pleasant.

Another good stay, nothing to complain about. A good basic breakfast free of charge. At jct 13 of the M6 unless you are a very light sleeper this will not be an issue. The staff are very accommodating and handle unreasonable guests with professionalism.

Used this hotel in a stopover on journey from Scotland to Devon.
Excellent hotel, close to other eating houses although evening menu in hotel more then adequate. Breakfast in hotel was excellent, the variety was more than I expected. Very clean and staff very pleasant and attentive. Would certainly look for Holiday Inn Express for future stopovers. Value for Money
