“Usual acceptable quality from Holiday Inn”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2013

Stayed here on business in early March. The hotel seemed quite quiet, but with a few meetings taking place the bar and restaurant was fairly lively. Had a large quiet room on the back of the hotel away from the main road. The proximity to Coventry Airport isn't a problem - there must only be a handful of flights every day! No air conditioning. Didn't eat at the hotel but saw plenty of food being served and it all looked ok - no complaints made. The service at the bar is a bit hit and miss - the staff disappear for long periods allowing queues and frustration to build! As PPC Platinum member I was given free (low speed) internet connection for 24 hrs, a 20% bar discount voucher and the obligatory free snack - a packet of 3 small biscuits! Free and plentiful parking.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back - away from the A45

Look Honey We have a Snack from The Hotel !
I could not hide my excitment when I was told at checkin we have a snack as we PPC members : 1 Packet of 3 biscuits between 4 of us , OK we made it into a game of RPS first 3 was winners !
anyway after all the excitment, We got to our room.
The Room was fine, bigger than standard HI Bathroom Clean & Tidy. Also we was also
given Free Internet & Discount Voucher for Food, this was for all us this time !
We did eat in the Restuarant and the food was Fine. for eveneing meal, breakfast was just OK, We did stay here a couple of years ago and found the staff a bit grumpy, but not this time the service was good, and all was friendly
The Hotel is on main road, so suggest you get a back Room, Car Parking is Free.
But you will need a car as Hotel not near anything, or rely on a Taxi

I have looked into the Priority Club biscuit comment I will ensure the correct number is given out per room occupant.

Well located this hotel is ideal for a one night business stay. The rooms are well appointed but poor mobile reception is a problem in most of the building.
The room service menus are adequate but you would not want it for consecutive nights.
Staff are pleasant and car parking is both free and easy.

Great Holiday Inn on many levels. My husband, my daughter and I arrived and found a warm welcome from reception. Our family room was very clean,and bigger than average hotel rooms abroad. We couldn't get the television working but were quickly attended to by another friendly member staff. We ate in the hotel restaurant but it was very expensive. Our breakfast was far better value for money. We also ate in the restaurant on our second night for convenience as we did not want to drive out to eat. I would stay here again but would make alternative arrangements for evening meals.

Dear Mrs Sherborne

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and feed back on the experience, it’s great to hear that you would stay again. I am sorry you experienced problems with our television system and found our restaurant expensive. I am currently looking at ways to enhance the evening restaurant experience as hotel restaurants can be costly and bring in more flexible pricing to meet the guest needs. Once again thank you for your feedback I look forward to you coming back.

Regards

We stayed overnight on Saturday 19 January as part of a National Holiday Coach Tour. Check in was quick and efficient and our room was excellent. Clean and comfortable with two large beds. The evening meal was good, the only complaint was that the dining room was really cold. Breakfast was good, plenty of choice and they had heated the room up. Would recommend this hotel. Unfortunately we did not get time to enjoy the leisure facilities.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights including the new years eve party and really enjoyed our time here.
On arrival we were checked in quickly and efficiently by friendly staff, the room was a double very spacious clean and the bed very comfortable. We had an evening meal here the first night which was good and the service prompt ,the next night was the new years eve party which consisted of a disco and buffet style meal both were excellent. My wife and i have no hesitation in recommending a stay here

We had our works christmas party here and a few of us decided to make a night of it and stay over.
The party itself was fantastic £30 for all-inclusive drinks, 3 course meal, and disco we all had a really good time!!
The hotel room was clean, the beds were comfy and breakfast the next moring was buffett style you helped yourself to what ever you wanted it was well stocked with a good variety from yogurts, cereals, toast full english etc and it was all very nice.
The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and welcoming wd recommend staying at this hotel.
