A weekend stay to coincide with our son starting at the University. Lovely big reception area and a decent lounge bar. Big reunion event that weekend for about 300 pretty much dominated the accommodation. Room was in the loser part of the hotel. Functional but a bit of an 80 s feel. Priced accordingly I suppose. Despite the hotel being... More

Stayed for a night out, a friend had also booked a room however he was told they were over booked and sent miles away. Clearly this could have easily been an issue at the booking agents rather than the hotel so not scoring them down for that! First impressions, tired but busy, staff were especially friendly and helpful, really impressed!... More

Cannot comment on staying at the hotel. Other reviews cover this. My wife and I called in for a 3 course lunch which was SUPER VALUE and although not Michelin star quality was certainly very edible. At £6 it was a 'STEAL' in fact. OK the veg was not fresh but frozen and could have been cooked a little longer... More

We were in Coventry for a conference and had chosen this hotel due to its proximity to our conference venue. Were told we'd been outbooked to a hotel 3 miles away. We asked for them to cover the cost of taxis to and from the venue from the new hotel each day- reasonable I believe, especially as we had 8am... More

The ugliest hotel I've ever seen. Too few elevators for an establishment that size (and with that number of floors). The food at the restaurant was astonishingly good, but since the restaurant is not quite equipped to handle the large number of guests, queues at the buffet were annoyingly long.

I booked a room at the Britannia Hotel via Booking.com. I was sent an email telling me it was over booked and I'd been transferred to another Britannia group hotel on the outskirts of Coventry. I was one of several who had been sent the same email so I wonder if this is common-place. I wanted to stay in Coventry... More

We stayed at this hotel on a trip with Just Go coach holidays and were very pleasantly surprised, the location was excellent, right behind the cathedral. Rooms and public areas clean and comfortable and food very good, the staff were very friendly. Exceptionally good value for money.

We were not expecting too much, having seen the reviews etc, so we went with an open mind, knowing that we were only staying for one night. We managed to secure an executive room for a very reasonable rate via a group booking, and it was a good size, had hot drink facilities, the bathroom was OK with a strong... More

What ever you do do not eat here, especially if you are a vegetarian. The food is terrible....not a fresh vegetable or fruit in sight...meat over cooked and tasteless. It is the worst food I have ever tried to eat in 30 years.
