This hotel is just off the M6 on the outskirts of Coventry, so it is really more of a stopover place rather than a destination hotel. Having said that, it is a damn sight better than a Travelodge or even a Premier Inn, so if what you want is a stopover, this will do the job nicely. It's also near the Ricoh stadium where Coventry City play.
Having stayed in a few Novotels, this is definitely not up to the high standards of the others in city centre locations, but it's fine for the price. I got a special deal of under £50 including breakfast for two, and for that price you can't complain. All the usual facilities are there, including ironing board, tea and coffee, free toiletries etc and there is a separate loo and bathroom. The atmosphere in the bar and restaurant was rather forlorn - lots of single middle-aged men looking as if they would rather be at home with the wife and kids - but pleasant enough in an antiseptic kind of way.
One thing to be aware of is that there is a £4 charge for using the car park. This includes hotel guests so it is effectively an addition to the rate. As far as I am aware, this is only one charge per stay, not per exit from the car park (we only went overnight so didn't get a chance to find out.) Perhaps this could be clarified by the management in their response.
