I've stayed at this hotel many times before, I had moved away from Coventry last year but it was nice to visit the city and stay at the Brooklands. At first I was a little weary about booking the hotel as the last time my wife and I had such a bad experience there. But we booked it and on arrival it looked like improvements had been made to the front of house. Clean and tidy with plenty of Parking. We were greeted by a gentlemen behind the reception, he seemed a little confused when I told him we had a reservation for one night. Once we got the key we headed to the room. Well the rooms haven't been refurbished for many many many many years. We were in room 24, very dark and very basic, Shame really as the room has potential. The carpet was badly worn and dull but looked clean. The Bed was very uncomfortable. There was your normal hotel room tea, coffee, colour tv, hair dryer. (Not very good) Basic clean bathroom and I was surprised there was no mould around the bath. I always rate a hotel on that and the Brooklands scored highly on that point. No mould mines clean air in the room. The hotel has a quiet bar area and sometimes you have to go looking for a member of staff to serve you. We didn't have an evening meal at the hotel but we did have breakfast. Very very nice indeed. I had a lovely cooked fresh English breakfast with fresh tea and plenty of toast to feed an army. Overall the hotel in my mind has come along way and although it had dropped in standards, the new management seems to be putting things right. Would I stay here again?? YES!! Would I recommend the hotel?? Maybe!! As long as the hotel keeps to the path their on, it should be a great hotel again and I look forward to trying the Brooklands Grange Hotel again.
