Very bad! Room cold (17 C) and smelly + quite impolite staff! I booked that based on reviews which I believe were fake. Please look carefully to all the recensions about this property - for your sake.

I have recently stayed here and I am not happy with the service I received. I arrive at the hotel to the following:- - Being talked/looked Down to By an old lady. - being told I would be moved to a LESSER equipped room mid-stay even AFTER paying the full amount for the "DOUBLE EN-SUITE", which only has SINGLE beds...

Met (NOT greeted) at door by absolutely vile woman whose social skills wouldn't do for a prison matron. Demanded immediate cash payment (despite website that proclaims credit cards accepted) and went on to say the card machine was "broken" as many other reviewers have noted. Next morn after a night with NO heat (In November?!) went down for breakfast to... More

Don't stop here, don't even slow down. First the good news: The place is well located. It is clean and the room that my friend and I had was large and comfortable. Bad news: everything else. The room was comfortable if you were in bed with the covers plied on, it was too cold to do anything else. This was... More

Bearing in mind the incredibly bad standard of spoken English demostrated by the landlady there was absolutely no point in trying to quibble about FreeView being different to Sky TV, or about a sink not constiuting "en-suite" or about the non-existant off-street parking or about the wet used towel laying on the bed or about the rather rubbish wi-fi....

Absolutely appalling service at this B&B. Arrived to be told they had no rooms despite the fact the money had already come out of my account. They refused to help find alternative accommodation, despite their T&C stating that they would if the original request could not be fulfilled. It then took 20 mins to get in writing that the money...

We spent just one night there, the bedroom was big and comfortable, the bathroom was huge (considering the UK standards) and everything was very clean. We arrived at 10.15 pm and we tried multiple times to ring the bell but nobody answered so we had to give them a call in order to get in. The landlady complained that it... More

Stayed 5 nights for business recently in the top floor attic room. Was a friendly place, far better than a Travelodge anyway. 24 hour entry, exit, a fridge per floor, ensuite in this room (7), am not complaining about water pressure - to be fair it's two floors up on a hill in a domestic property, what do you expect?...

My daughter booked, and paid, via the Highcroft website for one night's stay - she doesn't know Coventry, and was there for an interview in the city centre the next day. The website says you can check in any time up to 9:30pm. She arrived on the doorstep at 5:30pm and was told "We've cancelled your room". She told them... More

Located on a driveway within easy reach to the city center. If you walk a few yards on the opposite side along the driveway till the first cross, and then turn left, you can see a bus stop where No.7 bus can take you to Pool Meadow Bus Station; or just 15 mins by walk can you get there although...
