Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ed1978thhh Noisy hotel
I stay in hotels every Friday and Saturday night because of my work. In 12 years of doing this I've never stayed in such a noisy hotel. Sounded like there was a party in the halls until 4am. Running, shouting, banging, and when I told the receptionist in the morning about it all she said was "yeah we know, a few people have complained!" No apology, nothing!
Avoid this hotel at all costs. Staff should've stopped the noise as it was coming from right by the main entrance too. They clearly didn't care about customers trying to relax.

This hotel is in a good location for business in Burton or surrounding towns and cities. The hotel is basic, but rooms are comfortable. Decent breakfast offering.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heather52 Everything was great, the staff, service and room cleanliness
I would definitely stay here again, all you would expect from a Holiday Inn. Good valve for money, only one disappointing thing, no Malibu sold at the bar! maybe they need to expand the choices a little!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by agxie Great hotel in good location
Friendly, helpful staff including chalet girls. Clean room with sofa bed also made up. Plenty of hot water towels in room. Breakfast much better than i thought it would be with hot and cold choices available. 24/7 great coffee and other hot drinks available from reception as well as in room. Superb value. within 5 mins there is a McDonalds and a grill bar. Supermarket also close by with cafe
Finally great communications from staff prior to the stay. received a phone call to check and confirm details followed up by an email. Great place

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jud4136 Not great from start to finish
Stayed at the holiday inn in burton on Trent to attend a friends wedding on the 17 th August. Arrived at hotel at 1.30 pm to be told that our room was not ready even though I explained that we would need to use the room at this time in order to shower and change in time for the wedding at the time of booking and was told it would not be a problem. Eventually got into our room which was two singles after having booked a double but was told this would be rectified while me and my wife were attending the wedding.
Just getting changed I realised I'd left my cuff links at home so decided to buy some from the lobby area on way out. Told receptionist which cuff links I wanted to buy but after 15 minutes of trying various keys she could not open the cabinet so no cuff links. Very poor. After wedding room was same with 2 singles pushed together and bedding that did not fit the bed. Breakfast items were running out before end of service. Not good from start to finish.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hungryperson Bad Breakfast
We stayed for 1 night, the room was ok but the sofa bed was lumpy & uncomfortable. The breakfast was extremely poor as we were expecting a selection of cooked items. In fact the only hot items were beans, scrambled egg & sausages. The 1st sausage was burnt to a crisp & all dried up inside, the 2nd & 3rd were raw inside. I gave up but my husband tried a 4th which looked ok, and the 5th was again raw. Myself & our daughter felt unable to chance eating any cooked food after this so we ended up with a croissant & jam making breakfast a poor & expensive experience.

Normally stay here for business and yet again the team at the hotel came up trumps again.
They looked after my family superbly.
Rooms, bar, food and staff - simply excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mojo1alshameri Good simple hotel
These express by holiday inn hotels are cheap, simple and comfortable with a nice breakfast on the morning. Do not expect too much but then again you don't pay too much. Good for a couple of nights or just passing through.
Our family enjoyed their stay hope you do.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brenda76 Clean and comfortable room
As a place to stay overnight before travelling on, this was ideal. The room was spacious, the beds were fine. There were a couple of issues we had to point out to reception but their response was good and maintenance were on the case just as soon as we left. Would use again as the price was very good value for money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jcdnow58 No air conditioning in bedrooms and don't read your booking comments
I was most disappointed to find that the bedrooms had no air conditioning although the website for the hotel under the Rooms section stated;
"Make yourself at home in your air-conditioned Guest room at Holiday Inn Express Burton upon Trent"
The rooms have an air cooling system not air conditioning and was blowing warm air due to the outside temperature.
If you want a cool air conditioned room don't choose this hotel.
I also asked for an upper floor, no smoking, away from the elevator room and got a ground floor smoking room next to the elevator! This is not a fault just with this hotel but most holiday inn hotels I book. Booking comments are ignored.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Actongirl Value for money
Stayed here 20/7/13. Comfortable stay as usual at all your hotels.
The beds are much more comfortable than your nearest rivals although you pillows are not as good as theirs! Nevertheless, a good nights sleep - our stay was only a short one, just a 9 hour overnight stay as we were heading off somewhere else early and did not arrive till late the night before. Breakfast was excellent, in fact more than enough but bananas would have been helpful as one of the fresh fruit options! the latte coffee was the best I have had at some of your other Holiday Inns. We will definitely book again if we are in the area again. thanks

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grumpydad Excellent stay
This was around the third time my family have stayed at this hotel,the last time we stayed we were put on ground floor next to reception,and it was noisey,so we asked for a quieter place as my daughter has sleep related epilepsy ,we were put in a room that we would have been oblivious to an earth quake,room was lovely, staff could not have been any more helpfull,felt more like I was staying with relatives rather than a hotel,can't recommend enough.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JEDM good experience
Stayed here on business and was satisfied with the facility.
The staff was very helpful, someone (Stephanie if i recall) even printed a map for me when I asked for directions to a safe place to do my morning run). Breakfast was pretty good, although I would have liked a few more options. Room was OK, spartan but clean and functional. Only real negative is the charge for internet access, £5 a day is ridiculous.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Armesda Clean, friendly staff, rooms need refurbishing
I'm a regular visitor at this holiday inn express so am very familiar with the hotel and its staff. The staff are always helpful and polite. The facilities are to a good standard. My only grip is the bathroom sinks are generally blocked in the majority of rooms I've stayed in. The decor is now due for a repaint as well, but overall I would recommend this hotel.

Can't fault our stay. Easy to park (no barriers). Hotel was very nice, staff great and a good room.
The breakfast was excellent - advertised as continental but there was a great choice which included scrambled eggs, sausage and beans. Would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GirlFriday Adequate business hotel
This property is a little older now, but still offers a clean and comfortable stay. Remembering it is a limited service hotel, expect to have to go out for dinner, and pick up your own ironing board from the front desk; however, staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast pretty good. Location is ideal for Burton, Derby, Lichfield meetings. Very little Priority Club recognition.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Zoe123 Lovely staff and room, no breakfast!!
Can't fault the staff or the accomodation, but we had chosen Holiday Inn because we would get breakfast in the morning. We got down in good time to find nothing but a few rock hard overcooked sausages left! Absolutly NOTHING else - unless we wanted just toast. Very disappointing, and I would probably pay less and go to the cheaper rival up the road next time I stay in Burton.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dave18 A Complete Comfort Zone.
We have stayed at this hotel more than a few time, both as a married couple and as parents of a young child, and have found both the level of welcome and level of care excellent at every visit, after six months our son was still recognised by name, and duly spoilt, this, coupled with a very acceptable choice of breakfast, ease of finding location, and ample free car parking makes this a most pleasant accommodation. Our thanks to all staff..

We had a lovely room, it was twin and was very very clean, and was shocked to see my name on the television when we walked in. We went out for a meal across the road to a hungry horse, came back and had a drink in the lovely bar. We had a very good nights sleep, in a lovely comfy bed. In the morning we had a very nice breakfast. Would not hesitate to stay again. MR MORETON AND MRS L WAIN.

The bed in Rm 9 (I think) is totally unacceptable. It was like sleeping on the floor.
Otherwise, the stay was fine and the power shower was an added bonus.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by filler1020 Very Poor quality Holiday inn express
Given that i stay half of the year or more in Holiday inns and expresses, This one rates very low on the agenda
Rooms very cold unless the heating system is left on day and night at 30. Then the stupid blower fan keeps you awake when the temperasture is reached.
No free internet in the lobby. Most hotels offer free internet throughout now.
Bar ran out of beer on 2 occaisions over the last 3 weeks.
I only stayed there to get the points.
Staff friendly and helpfull
Often no bananas or rolls at breakfast (small point) but as a Diabetic, Bananas are my one luxury. :-)
No underfloor heating in bathroom didnt help matters with the heating, especially when we were working in near freezing conditions for 12 hours a day. Showers very good tho.
