Stayed there last weekend as part of a national holidays trip. Hotel is dated, however, clean & tidy. Staff are very friendly & helpful. Very approachable & down to earth, making my stay even more relaxed. Food was nice, with several options available. Overall a nice stay, nice hotel. Would recommend.

Went there to stay for a week during graduation. Its location is IDEAL, v close to sainsburys, the cathedral, the uni and the city centre. I liked it in the sense that it kept the old style intact - being a vintage fanatic i enjoyed the old fashioned hotel. Would choose again if going back to coventry

My friend and I had booked tickets to attend a function being held at the hotel last Saturday, so it made sense for us to also book a room in the hotel that night, with us not being from Coventry. We met up at the nearby Cox Street car park (the nearest parking facilities to the hotel) and walked the... More

I stayed for one night and had a room with no lamp shades, the toilet didn't work and the shower was leaking. This was once a nice hotel. I'd stayed here ten or so years ago and it had been fine but now it looks very tired and shoddy version of what it once was. Breakfast is a nightmare as... More

Can't fault this precious little gem. Food & beverages top knot check for a large hotel chain. Rooms were clean, comfortable & well appointed. You had access to the hotel's free public wifi system in the main lobby & lounge near the reception. . Yeah ..A good stay and would stay there again definitely
