“no sleep”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Stayed in double room facing the road £49.50: On the plus side: clean towels and sheets, comfy bed and good shower (although the hose was badly in need of replacement). On the negative side: small, in urgent need of refurbishment, no attention to details eg. spiders in corners of rooms, no soap. En-suite was in what is best described as a cupboard and we were greeted by a notice advising how to dispose of condoms.

The squeaky floorboards, drunks coming in at 3:20am, next door's tv at 5am did not allow us to sleep.

Staff offered no personal touch and we wouldn't describe as particularly friendly eg no acknowledgement in morning and the request for vegetarian breakfast was met with surprise.

We stay in hotels across the country most weekends and have never felt cause to post a review before however, we are very disappointed as it would have been an ideal regular base to visit Daughter but will be paying more next time to get some sleep and feel welcomed rather than intruding.

Good food from a wide range of dishes available from the main menu plus a specials board. Generous portions. Mixed meat salad is always my favourite. Curry with rice AND chips - amazing! Good range of real ales always on offer.

Booked this on LateRooms for 1 night £49.50 just to get our heads down for the night en route home. The pub looked OK for a traditional pub but the rooms are in need of total refurbishment. So small, nowhere to put your luggage and you had to take it in turns to move around. The en suite shower room (old electric shower) was damp, musty with mould on ceiling and grouting. The bedding and towels were in good condition and freshly laundered. Breakfast was a take it or leave it affair and basic but acceptable. The location is very close if you are driving to Warwick Castle. Overall we got a good night's sleep (despite the squishy bed) for what we paid but I would not recommend or stay there again. Pay a bit more and stay somewhere else.

There is a large choice of accommodation in Kenilworth, but as I am careful with my money (tight), I was very interested with the cost of staying at the Cottage Inn. I looked at the reviews and I whole heartily agree with all the comments.
Good parking, a lovely breakfast ,nice evening meal. Though the corridor outside the rooms, had an amusing creaky floor we had two good nights sleep.
There was a heat wave in Kenilworth during the stay ,so a much needed fan was in our room and the power shower was a god send.
The pub does 2 real ales, there is another real ale pub just round the corner and the other 15 pubs are not too far away. The Castle was the reason we went to Kenilworth and like the Cottage Inn, did not disappoint us.

What a lovely pub! Wonderful selection of real ales, excellent food and such friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are not exactly the Ritz and you get what you pay for, but they are clean and functional if somewhat basic and on the small side.
A great place to stay for sightseeing in Warwick, Leamington, Kenilworth and even Coventry.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back to avoid traffic noise

Loved this pub. Food was lovely, not too noisy in the evenings and perfect location for many local attractions.
If I had one criticism it would be that breakfast finished a little too early. Especially as we were staying in a pub.
