The Cottage Inn
Ranked #6 of 9 Kenilworth B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 March 2014

I would say that this B&B is below average but to categorise it as poor would be a bit harsh.

Everything in my room worked and it was clean, no nasty smells but just very shabby and in very desperate need of a complete renovation. It probably hasn't been touched since the '80s!
I had dinner and breakfast there and although it was nothing to shout about, it was ok. Quite worryingly there was little concern about the smell of gas in the pub that evening despite it being brought to their attention by many people. Staff were ok but not particularly friendly. This is not the place to stay if you want to sleep in - the vacuum cleaning started at 7am!

In terms of value for money, I have stayed at far nicer B&Bs for the same price or cheaper. I wouldn't go back or recommend.

We have eaten here on a number of occasions now and have found the quality of food to be consistently good whether it be lunchtime or a busy Saturday night. We've always found it to be clean and the staff friendly. Good home cooked forms part of the menu and there are specials every day.

I stayed for one night at the Cottage Inn in Kenilworth. It is not a fancy venue and the room was a little small but that was not a problem. The accommodation was clean, the shower was hot and their was sufficient brew kit. The food in the bar was well cooked and there was lots of it and it was well priced.

The staff were excellent and if you are looking for a short stay stop over where you get value for money, nothing fancy but more than good enought, this is the place.

I will stay there again the next time I am in that area I assure you.

The reviewers who are sniffy about The Cottage Inn were looking for Top Class at Budget Price - idiots: you get what you pay for.
Clean (though rooms are cramped), spotless bathroom, friendly, helpful but professional staff, very tasty food and drink - ideal for my three nights' stay for the Warwick Literary Festival.
I'd recommend this to friends who understand hospitality as I do having owned and operated two Blackpool Guest Houses.

I booked the back room of this pub for a 30th birthday gathering with friends. The staff were so pleasant, friendly and accommodating, which made organising the event stress-free. We also ordered some buffet food which was great- very generous portions.
Thank you for a lovely night. Highly recommend.

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.
