My wife and I recently visited to see some snooker being played. The snooker venue, Jaguar Hall 2, was excellent; but had slightly less seating than expected. Whilst not a problem for viewing, for our seat allocations were spot-on; it did echo a bit within the Ricoh Centre when we came out for a break, as this was the only event taking place.
The bar area was open, although the Gentlemen's toilets were sized for the bar, and not the event. First time I have had to queue for years! I'm told there was another set of toilets the opposite side of Jaguar Hall 2, but some people did get lost trying to find them. The fast food in the bar area (burgers & hot dogs)was excellent, with locally sourced meats - a pleasant surprise! Lots of seating to eat your food. Staff were very attentive and helpful.
We stayed in a very local hotel, and walked to the venue. Whilst there was ample car parking space, I could see how it could get frustrating if the car park was full.

Great location, good services,plenty of parking.
Really enjoyed the Expo there last weekend.
I stayed at the Holiday Inn Coventry which was only a few mins along the next junction of the M6

The football stadium offers excellent uninhibited views of the action on the playing field.
Sadly the stadium is not in use at present as Coventry City F.C. owners are in dispute with the landlords over unpaid rent. Hopefully the dispute will be resolved and the stadium will once again play host to exciting football matches once again
The stadium has hosted Soccer games during the 2012 Olympics and Heinekin Cup rugby games as well as regular season football.
There is excellent parking and the adjacent hotel and casino are well appointed and impressive

Such a shame as it is a lovely venue and has great parking and eateries . Sadly the live concerts here are rubbish as the acoustics are so bad , we saw Bon Jovi here and couldn't hear them , luckily I knew all the songs so sang along anyway , my husband didn't and was very disappointed!!!!!

Was at the Ricoh for a three day convention. Parking was excellent and close to stadium. Seating was very comfortable had cushioned chairs and plenty of leg room which is unusually at football stadiums. Facilities were good and no negatives to think of.
