“This hotel isn't quite as good as it looks”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

We were very disappointed with our two night stay over the Easter weekend. We had upgraded our room so was surprised to be given a room that I can only describe as being in the attic. The bed was wedged between two walls and you would have had to climb in from the end. The furniture was dirty and the room was very small - I think this was room 16. I spoke to the staff and they said that this room isn't everyone's cup of tea and we was offered room 2 instead. This room looked much better until you was in it.
The room had cobwebs, the white chairs were stained, we only had one bath towel, the shower gel was empty, the floor tills in the shower had no grout so the water went underneath and bubbled up when you walked on them, the bed had a dip in it and over all the room needed a bit of TLC.
The food wasn't any better. We was really looking forward to the full english breakfast on the first day this came out almost as soon as we ordered but was cold. When I told the waitress she just said she would tell the chef. The plates were chipped and the white milk jugs was brown inside. On the second morning we ordered the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs the food took a while to come out so we was hopeful that it would be hot - the plate was hot today but again it was cold and we couldn't eat the egg.

It is a real shame as this could be a lovely Hotel if they just paid attention to a few of the basics. The location is also lovely.

Room Tip: Avoid room 16

A Sunday treat from my girlfriend. Quite a pleasant location but a little outside the town centre. Good service and efficient service. I didn't see the rooms so my score of 5 isn't a true reflection
Well worth a visit

We stayed here for the weekend recently, we had a great time, the hotel is lovely, staff are very friendly and the food was amazing... Defiantly recommend eating here! The location is great only a short walk into the main town with all the shops/bars/restaurants. The only downside was there was a party there on the Saturday night and the music was very loud as our room was above the function room, although it all finished by midnight so not too bad as we were up having drinks anyway.

Had a two night stay. The room was newly refurbished - was clean and comfortable. We did not eat in the restaurant for dinner but the breakfasts were excellent with a good choice from the menu. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. The hotel is within easy reach of the town and also some lovely river/canal walks. Do use the Beauty salon as the Elemis treatments are first class and the staff are very good. The only criticism I have is that the outside of the hotel looks a little unkempt and the entrance porch would benefit from a good clean as the mosaic floor is very nice but very dirty! I would, however, certainly recommend the hotel.

Had Sunday Lunch at The Epiode hotel for a family birthday today, service was excellent as was the food! Starters came quickly as did the main, piping hot with lovely fresh vegetables. We had the Beef and Pork, meat was well cooked and plentiful! Starters were Prawn cocktail and a rocket bacon, black pudding and egg salad! Didn't have room for the pudding.
Would recommend as a lovely setting for Lunch and great value!!

We had been given a two night stay in a hotel as a gift and chose this hotel because it was near to a number of NT places as well as Gaydon Motor Museum. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. It was good to see a hotel with lots of original features and some stunning modern chandeliers. The staff were helpful and the hotel is very near to shops and restaurants.We had the surf and turf meal on our second night which was good. My only complaint at breakfast would be that the teapots were not good pourers and the tea needed to be hotter

Booked 2 night mid week break with Wowcher! at this hotel and very pleased I did. Excellent room with ever so comfortable huge bed. Restaurant meal was very good as were breakfasts. Located very close to town centre very easy walking distance. Staff very friendly and efficient, absolutely recommend this hotel if you fancy a break in Warwickshire, main tourist attractions are so close.

Room Tip: East facing room so early morning sunshine ( well just the one day) due to mist!! Room 14.
