After a day at Drayton Manor this hotel was perfect to crash in. Can't fault the hotel. It doesn't have a restaurant but the staff gave us take away menus and told us of local restaurants. There are lots of places to eat nearby. The hotel did have a microwave in the vending section of the reception which is ideal for heating up childrens food.
Breakfast was a lot more than I expected, sausages, bean, scrambled egg. Loads of branded cereals, croissants, Danish pastries, fruit, yoghurts, juice.
Nice looking and centrally located hotel. The bedroom and general decor were a bit tired but perfectly acceptable. I arrived half-way through breakfast and the cooked breakfast was ok, but could have been presented better - it's help yourself and the food containers could do with being replaced. The waitress was nice and brought some tea quickly. It was quite cheap so, all in all, it was good value for money.

Booked at the last minute for a family reunion,( I couldn't afford the hotel my family were staying in in Lichfield) however, the Holiday Inn Express gave us a much better experience. We were greeted by smiling faces, the room was clean and the beds extremely comfy (including the sofa bed.) I thought we might be disturbed by traffic noise through the night but you couldn't hear anything.
I expect this type of hotel to be pretty soul less but for what we paid, and what we got, it couldn't be faulted. I was travelling with my two children who enjoyed the buffet breakfast (which included a cooked breakfast if you wanted it - nothing special but again, excellent value for money). It was also extremely convenient for our journey home on the A5 in the morning!
My partner and I stayed at this hotel on the way to Alton Towers (40 drive away) . We arrived very late however this was no problem for the staff, who were very warm and welcoming. We were checked in quickly and given the keys to our room in the building adjoining the pub. The room was basic but clean and the room rate included a full breakfast, free wifi and parking - this was a great little find. Breakfast included a continental buffet and a choice of hot meal (We both had Eggs Royale)
If you are looking for luxury this is not it but If you need a place to stay which is clean, the staff are super friendly and within good distance of attractions then the Riverside Hotel is great.

This hotel came out at the cheapest 1 night stay and within 20miles of alton towers so we booked here to stay with are two children, its about 30-35 min drive from AT but worth it, lovely pub next door too, staff cery helpfull, and breakfast very good consodering it was included.
For an overnight stay you would be hard pressed to find better value for money. The location of the hotel is excellent. The staff were helpful and friendly, and the rooms spacious and spotlessly clean.
