“NEW BEDS PLEASE”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

We stayed for two nights in Room 11 in the courtyard. Service was good and location excellent.

The room was clean but with an overpowering smell of cleaning fluid.

The main problem was the bed. It was the most uncomfortable one I have ever (not very well) slept in.

I notice similar comments on T A which is a shame as the owner is aware of the problem but for whatever reason not resolved it.

Shame because this could be a really good place to stay.

Room Tip: Suggest you ask if the bed is comfortable given the comments posted on Trip Advisor.

Comfortable clean and friendly place to stay, right in the thick of things! Easy walk to castle, shops , restaurants and bars. Would recommend this as good place to stay.Motel style rooms at back were quiet and very convenient for "coming and going",. Car park only small with quiite a tight gated entrance way, but not impossible for a large car. Happy to go back.

Very friendly and helpful. We had a room out the back which was spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and we will be going back.for another lovely night`s sleep. It is very handy for walking around Warwick.

My daughter and I were touring the UK together, and had not originally planned to spend the night in Warwick. But we called them at the last minute and they gave us a warm welcome. Sean, the owner, is friendly and helpful, and we got especially good service from Melissa. The rooms are quite small, even by UK standards, but they were impeccably clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good, and at night the pub is lively with people singing and playing instruments. Best of all, it is a 5 minute walk from Warwick Castle. I consider this one of the top "finds" of our trip and highly recommend it to anyone.

Clean, comfortable with friendly staff. met with a smile on arrival and was quickly signed in and given our rooms. Rooms are clean and comfortable, ours was a decent size. Breakfast was excellent with the option of various combinations, The bar was friendly with a lot of locals in and a variety of beers. Warwick castle and the town was within easy walking distance, Advise on places to eat and visit on our second day meant we left Warwick and the Old Fourpenny Shop Hotel very happy with the thought of returning next year,

We have just returned home after staying 3nights . We enjoyed our stay the rooms were very clean and comfortable. we stayed in room 3 and 6 and no co paints . If I was to be picky I would have liked a more powerful shower but I understand the logistics in an old building so was not surprised. all the staff were both friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent and when they say full that's exactly how you leave the breakfast room. According to the chaps the choice of beer and how it is kept is excellent. if you are going to see the castle or visit Stratford then this is the place to stay and a visit to Mr India is also recommended.

Had a lovely time during our stay. The family room was comfortable for the 4 of us. Breakfast service was wonderful. The pub at the front offered a variety of local beers and ales. It allowed us to be exposed to the pub as the center of the community in England.
