Having stayed at this hotel several times, I would rate this hotel no more than three stars.
On all occasions I have stayed in a queen bedroom, the room is equipped with standard furniture, desk, lounge table, cupboard, a couple of chairs, Iron/Board, 21" television, kettle, tea/coffee sachets provided and a fan. The rooms are definitely outdated but quite clean. The bathroom has also seen better days but again very clean and supplied with Dove cream wash dispensers, On some occasions you are also provided with small miniature toiletries but that’s down to luck, on my last visit there was just a small bottle of Bath Foam, however on a previous visit there was a bottle of moisturiser, shower gel, shampoo, soap, sewing kit and shoe shine block.
I have eaten several times during breakfast and dinner, there is quite a bit of variety at breakfast but pretty standard at the same time, dinner also has a fairly decent range, however food is highly priced considering there is a couple of diners around the corner, Frankie and Benny's, KFC and McDonalds. A litre bottle of water costs £3.50.
All rooms offer high speed internet access but at a high price, £6 per hour or £15 for 24 hours. I use 3G (Mobile Broadband) which works very well around the hotel, especially on the first and second floors.
As a business guest, the hotel is quite satisfactory, however it must be noted the hotel is situated in the middle of a business park. Access to Warwick, Leamington Spa, M40, A46 is good. Having a large retail park just around the corner (2 minutes by car), Sainsbury’s (Inc Petrol), Next, Mothercare, Frankie and Bennys, KFC etc is extremely convenient.
As other reviews have mentioned, the hotel now charges for parking, this costs £2.50 per night, I don't know what management were thinking when they introduced this "lets squeeze more out of our customers" charge, but it’s highly unfair. Had it not been for my company paying for my expenses, I would not be staying at this hotel on this point alone.
The staff are outstanding considering the hotels bad points. They have always been polite, helpful and very friendly. No request, no matter what the time, is too much for them.
