2nd time I've stopped at this P.I and again it was over a weekend. Late arriving on the Friday I was surpised,for a small non city centre P.I, that reception is now manned by two large men(last time it was a lone female) one of whom was untidy looking with ill-fitting black jean with even his flies undone, hands dirty and covered in nicotine, who just looks you up and down like you are going to rob the place. You get the inpression he thinks he's on the door at some, backstreet, London club venue as apposed to a small hotel on a business park in Coventry. With a quick direction to my room and a grunt from Mr doorman i went to my room.
Rooms have had a make over since my visit and are spotless as ever..top marks.
Anytime I passed by reception the two doormen was either smoking(outside) or eating slumped in chairs. It makes me think this P.I has a reputation problem at weekends..hence the heavy handed look.
Sunday is a different story with a nice lady(Sarch i think you dont like to stare at a ladies chest to read her name badge!) on the desk early morning time and a chap called Paul who works a 16 hour shift covering all afternoon plus night shift..yes really. Very polite and helpful AND always busy if not round the hotel moving new linen he is ironing(blankets,bed throws and the hotel shower curtains!!! never seen that before at any hotel behind the desk.
Did not take up breakfast at the TGI's due to lots of poor reviews.
Overall avery clean hotel with very different staff(and image) depending on your day of stay.
