“Not worth the money”
Reviewed 19 October 2009

Paid £99 including breakfast and was disappointed in a number of ways. Firstly, on arrival I noted that the exterior had been rebranded and therefore hoped that the rooms would also have been freshened up. The sad thing is I think my room had been but it was hard to tell (as if the problems had just been covered up). Room window would not shut (and reporting it to reception proved useless), the restaurant got my dinner order wrong, served a cloudy beer and then had the cheeky to automatically add a service charge. Just not that good really - though on the plus side they no longer have the cheek to charge you for parking!

Stayed October 2009, travelled on business

According to a recent ad campaign, Holiday Inn is redoing all of its hotels, and I hope this one is on the list very, very soon. The staff was great, very accomodating and friendly, and quite frankly deserve a better hotel. The elevators were very slow, the hallways were quite worn and the furniture and fixtures need updating. There was a large portable fan in the room, indicative that it gets pretty warm in there apparently. The bath fixtures were very dated and the whole place just looked in need of a refresh. The staff could not be nicer, but the hotel needs some TLC. I can't say I'd recommend it to a friend, but I've stayed in a lot worse places!

Booked as a two nights b&b with dinner one night break at a very good rate on the Holiday Inn website.
Location is 1 mile from Leamington Spa, 2 miles from Warwick on a business park. Probably too far to walk comfortably to either but the canal/river to Warwick is only 5 mins walk away. Huge Sainsburys, other shops + KFC/MacDonalds also 5 mins walk.
Check in/out quick and friendly.
Two double bedded room was OK size and bathroom modern - both were clean. However, window only opens a fraction and there's no aircon so it did get very warm. No fridge but ice machine on 1st floor...which was broken. However, when I told the receptiontist she immediately went and got me a big bucket of ice from behind the bar. Only 2 teabags in a family room seemed a bit mean though!
Breakfast was a good buffet selection of cereals, fruit etc. + hot cooked English.
The inclusive dinner was either 3 courses form the daily menu (£20) or an allowance of £18 from the main menu. Food on this was quite pricy - most main courses were about £14 so you'd struggle to get 2 courses, let alone 3. Drinks prices were also on the high side. However, children eat free and can have 3 courses if they want. Food quality was overall pretty good.
The main reason for the break was to visit Warwick Castle (reviewed elsewhere) and at the rate we got this hotel served the purpose very well.

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Leamington Spa. The Hotel was smart, clean and comfortable as you would expect, but more importantly the staff were helpful,welcoming and made a fuss of our 3 well- behaved poodles. They had a seperate area to exercise your dogs and convenient bins to clean up after them. They made a point of telling us that it was a pleasure to welcome responsible pet owners. This is very much in line with hotels in Europe, but sadly lacking in much of Britain. They also serve an excellent Breakfast as well ( for the humans of course!)

Reviewed 22 July 2009

my husband and i stayed here for the weekend as it was our Pearl Wedding Anniversary,we requested an up grade and a quite room. The hotel kindly gave us our request and this certainly made our weekend. We had a lovely meal on Friday evening and breakfast was also good, we just found that the staff was a little slow at topping things up, and we never got what we really wanted. This maybe due to having breakfast later, breakfast ran from 7.30 - 11.00am. We ate at 9.30, but once again it was in a nice setting. Touring from this hotel was easy. Lemming Town Center was lovely plenty of shops. Stratford upon Avon was magical, we took a lovely boat trip and walked around all the sights. you will not be disappointed here and thanks to the staff again for a wonderful weekend.

The accommodation was clean, modern and pleasant. The staff were curteous and ready to please. Plenty of car parking space. The provision of an executive bedroom and separate dining area were extremely nice touches as this visit was to celebrate a special birthday occasion. Our eating experience at the hotel was satisfactory. I would happily use this hotel again!!!

We stayed in this hotel in June, having stayed in many Holiday Inns throughout the country we know they are of a good standard, but the staff at the Leamington Spa Holiday Inn proved to be outstanding. The Receptionist was the most genuinely pleasant person we have ever come across, the restaurant and bar staff were very friendly , helpful and efficient in short "nothing was too much trouble" and the phrase going the extra mile seems to spring to mind. We will return to this hotel in the near future and would highly recommend this hotel.
