Best Western Appleby Park Hotel.

Why not make memories in the Midlands, at the Best Western Appleby Park Hotel? This Best Western is located on the outskirts of Tamworth (in Appleby Magna) and proves brilliant for both business and leisure getaways. The hotel lies just off Junction 11 on the M42, so you'll also be within driving distance of many major cities including Birmingham, Loughborough, Derby and Nottingham.

If you head to Birmingham, we recommend stocking up on Dairy Milk at Cadburys World only 45 minutes drive away from the hotel. Derby Cathedral and Loughborough's Beacon Hill Country Park are both only thirty minutes away, and will make for some superb snapshots to show your friends and family. If you don't wish to travel quite so far, plenty of family fun can be found closer by. Drayton Manor Theme Park is less than a 20-minute drive away and Twycross zoo is only 4 minutes away - both making for great days out.

The Best Western is also a mere 20-minute drive from Donington Park, where Download Festival is held every year in June. So, if you're hoping to swerve the muddy camping or simply enjoy a luxurious nights stay - and long shower - after the weekend, the Best Western is ideal.

This lovely location is made all the more attractive by the amazing accommodation available at our hotel in Tamworth. There's plenty of room for relaxation thanks to a choice of 95 en-suite rooms including doubles and twins, interconnecting rooms and family bedrooms. Before you settle down for the evening, why not fill yourself up in The Park Restaurant - our delicious and contemporary bistro? Whether you are looking for something healthy or hearty, there will be plenty on the menu for you.

Liz St John, General Manager at Best Western Appleby Park Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Quirkydancer. We have had several emails and each time I have been clear in my responses. You believed a grab and go breakfast was included in your discounted room only rate and it was not. We did offer grab and go breakfast (to guests on a pre-paid bed and breakfast rate) when we initially re-opened following lockdown. Had your booking included breakfast, this would have been on your confirmation where it states “room only”. I believe that the confusion began with your expectation of it being available and therefore complimentary. My team have responded honestly and respectfully to your requests, as have I.

Don't stay here

Hi EmilyE408 I am disappointed to read your comments, - even more so as there is no record of your issues being raised with the team during your stay. Had you done so, we could have upgraded you to one of our superior rooms, we could have cooked eggs to your liking and had an opportunity to restore your faith in us before you decided to check out.
