Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mholtjunior Low Price
I think it can be slightly unfair reviewing Express hotels, because there's not too much positive you can really say, except that the price is usually very good ... the rooms are clean and functional and you have the basics that you need ... bed, shower, television ... except at Tamworth the television did not work ...
... and, despite being a Platinum Priority Club member, I was never awarded the due points ... in fact, Priority Club inform me that I never stayed at the hotel at all ... very bizarre, because I most certainly did! Whether I will again is somewhat doubtful!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bonbon1 Great hotel, just not so good breakfast
The hotel itself was a really nice and relaxing experience and we enjoyed the two nights we stayed at the hotel. the only dont side to the hotel is the breakfast, there isnt a great variety, too busy and not enough clean tables to sit down on. We had breakfast only once during our weekend visit.
Hotel rooms were lovely and clean and very big so was no problems with room, had a good customer service from the reception and offered us take-away menus as they dont sure evenings meal over the festive period. Our second visit to this hotel and we would definately go again- just dont enjoy the whole breakfast experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kim01 Great value for money.
Our family (2 adults, 1 child) stayed for one night at this hotel in December 2012 and we were extremely pleased with all aspects of our stay. The room was very clean and certainly large enough to accommodate the 3 of us. Upon arrival and departure the reception staff were attentive and very polite. I have read other reviews about the quality of breakfasts at HIE in general but can only say we were very happy with the variety on offer for the rate we paid. We would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glynis Brilliant stay
The check in and service were all great. Clean room and well equiped room, comfy bed, and excellent shower. The rooms were nicer than some 5* hotels we have stayed in. Breakfast was fine, but basic. Excellent location next to the snow dome and plenty of parking. Would highly recommend this hotel we were pleasantly surprsied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ITCO Fantastic breakfast
First stay at Tamworth Express.
A great Express when judging against other HI Express hotels.
Staff helpful and attentive, a good stay; would reccomned for business and would return with family if staying in the area.
Breakfast was brilliant a 'home from home' experince; cereal, joghurt, toast and coffee, exactly what I eat at home and the best of all free, other budget hotels charge for the same. Granted if your looking for a big fry up or extensive continental offering you could be dissapointed... something for nothing and still people complain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aaron2012 Comfortable, relaxing, clean and modern
Everything and more from this hotel. Brilliant service, and superb staff. The room was clean, and modern. The shower was the best I have had and it was all very easy.
The staff were exceptional friendly and helpful. I left something in my room after checking out and one call later, they had the item and someone picked it up for me that night.
The breakfast was good, though I felt could have been better. Hot food looked a bit dry (though I didn't taste it) and the continental breakfast was a bit limited but it was all very good value and I didn't expect too much anyway.
Bottom line is, it was very comfortable and I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Peter111 Great room shame about the breakfast
Breakfast service and availability of food, cutlery, plates etc was appalling. Mentioned on check out and was told there had been staffing issues but felt that the overall breakfast experience was inexcusable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smith666 Good standards
A very good stay at the HI express at Tamworth. Standard of the room furnishings is high even by HI express standards with a good work area, TV and Bathroom. One slight issue with the High speed Internet ..it was slow...but other than that spot on ...keep up the good work....Location is ideal if you want to visit the snowdome as it is shares the same car park...

Its a nice clean room, however i have to mark it down because I just dont like rooms where you cannot open the windows more than an inch!

Staff is first class. They were helpful and attentive always. A little more variety with breakfast would be nice. They have a lot of families staying there, be ready for a lot of children.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kenosb good service very nice staff
Hotel was very well situated for our visit to the NEC at Birmingham. Staff were helpful and efficiant. Room could do with darker curtains to block out light for us poor sleepers who need to be in the dark. Light fitting in shower managed to fall ou just as I was taking a shower and landed right on my head but these things happen in the best places. All in all a very pleasant place to stay. Failed to notice that I was a priority club member.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jazzyjeff MY STAY AT THE HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS
stayed at the holiday inn express during my recent trip with the family to drayton manor and tamworth snowdome.
the hotel was nice and clean and had a very relaxed atmosphere.
the rooms were clean but not ideal for 4 people (2 adults + 2 kids) - a bit cramped.
the bed mattress was not the best - looked like it had seen better days .
When sleeping you found yourself rolling into the middle.
the bathroom was nice and the shower was great - nice and big!
breakfast was good with a nice choice although it would be nice to see a bit more vegetarian variety for the hot breakfast.
staff very friendly and helpful.
would i stay again - yes - as long as i dont get the same mattress!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BJ1946 I'll be back!
Apart from this being the most convenient place for me to stay when I'm visiting Tamworth, it's a really comfortable place.
Evening meals offer plenty of choice, which seems to change frequently.
Staff professional and friendly

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo60 Pleasant surprise
We booked in at Tamworth so that we could spend a couple of days at Drayton Manor Park and Cadbury World. We were pleasantly surprised at how nice Tamworth was and the hotel surroundings were very nice. We had two fun packed days followed by relaxing nights at the hotel where we had a very comfortable sleep.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sillan An ideal oasis
My wife and I, two "Seniors", travelling by public transport found this hotel to be just right in every way. We were visiting in the Lichfield area, taking a look at the National Memorial Arboretum not far away.
We were very comortable in the hotel and must pay tribute to the front office/reception staff. Most welcoming, friendly and willing to assist in every way.

This is the 2nd time this year we have stayed at the Tamworth Holiday Inn and what a fab experience. Everything is spotlessly clean from the bathrooms and bedrooms to the restaurant/bar areas. Breakfast is perfect and the highlight of the stay for my boys and the fact that milk is provided for younger babies is brilliant. We found the beds so comfy we all slept in until 8.15 which is unheard of in our house! Thank you.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chunkmonkey Lovely room, shame about breakfast!
We stayed at the hotel for one night on Saturday 6th October. The reception was nice and the staff helpful. The room was clean and comfortable with a very soft bed and nice shower facilities. The only disappointment was Sunday breakfast. We came down at 10am, half hour before service stopped, and was greeted with a half empty restaurant but every table was dirty. There was hardly anything left on the so called buffet other than a few burnt croissants and some cereal. The coffee from the machine was disgusting! We had to go find the receptionist to ask for cutlery and butter, she didnt seem too pleased. At one point later, about 4 staff came out of the kitchen to close down, this is obviously where they had been hiding. A real shame and our lasting memory of this hotel
