Reviewed 1 October 2013

My wife and I stayed over on Sunday night. The staff were friendly and helpful however descriptions of the hotel on their website failed to reflect a current view. Our room was clean and tidy although rather demure - the view from the window was directly on to building materials and scrub land. The coffee / tea making supplies had not been replenished. The bathroom although functional was basic, the shower resembled a garden hose with a rose attached and the tile grouting around the room was mouldy with wallpaper peeling from the wall. The breakfast was excellent with good and cheery service but again the ambience of the restaurant was somewhat demure and dated. It would appear that renovations are taking place around the hotel - it would be more honest to state the situation and I am sure guests would respect this. We were rather disappointed.

We stayed here for two nights whilst visiting Warwick uni. Unlike a lot of hotels we were able to have one room for my husband and myself plus our daughter which was great value for money.

All of the staff that we came into contact with were really friendly. When we asked for directions for the uni, the member of staff came back with an AA route planner that he had printed off for us, really going the extra mile.

We had two dinners in the restaurant and found the food to be of excellent quality. We also sampled the high tea and breakfast. They had some really comfy sofa and the staff would often let my husband have the remote control for the tv so he would watch the football - home from home really!

The hotel is undergoing refurbishment and the bedroom and particularly the bathroom were a bit tired but very clean. There are tea and coffee making facilities which I always see as a plus.

If our daughter does decide to go to Warwick uni then I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

We stayed here last night with our son prior to depositing him at Warwick University this morning. The rooms were spotless, the bathrooms are still awaiting renovation but were clean and functional, and the staff were welcoming and helpful. The food in the restaurant was good, and all in all we had a lovely last evening together. Once the renovations are finished, it will be fabulous....

Room Tip: Rooms at the back on the second floor are away from the road and bar, and therefore more peaceful

What a little Gem this place is. We arrived and the staff were most welcoming showing us to a beautiful table ready for our afternoon tea. The presentation was lovely smoked salmon, beef and mustard, finger sandwiches with two beautifully warmed scones, clotted cream and jam.fresh strawberries, home made shortbread, baileys cheesecake and a square of Madeira cake with tea or coffee refills. And that was £7.50 per person. A must to visit as you can't get better service and food in a relaxing environment. Well done as I have been to a lot of afternoon teas in London,Surrey Berkshire and Hampshire, and yours exceeded them. I'm going to come for a Sunday roast next. Thank you all and looking forward to my return. My mother who I brought will be back on Saturday with her friends as she loved it :)

Had an excellent stay at Brooklands Grange. The room was large with plenty of space even with four big holdalls and a wardrobe full of clothes. The room was also clean and tidy. What made this stay for us was the staff, they were friendly and accommodating. They let us keep our luggage in a spare room for us, as we wanted to go into coventry to explore and didn't want our valuables on show. They also helped out with printing an email confirmation for tickets for an event. Nothing was too much trouble. The full english breakfast was very good, and the hotel was very good value for money.

Having returned to Brooklands Grange after almost a year I have to say what an improvement.
They are obviously making major refurbishments to the hotel and grounds and now starting to look not so 'tired'. Had a very nice afternoon tea on arrival and would have it again.....All the staff we're excellent... No complaints at all....look forward to the next stay...probably next month.

Not the poshest afternoon tea we've ever had (and we're regular 'tea-ers') but one of the friendliest. Laura was really great and if we'd drunk the huge jug of Pimms she'd made up for us, we'dve had to stay the night! Groupon deal that was well worth the value for money. We were so impressed with the service and the tea that we've decided to go back for our girlie Christmas group meal.
