A good location depending on where you want to be, good room and facilities.

Just what you need when you want resonable value facilities and the assurance of a comfortable night.

As with most hotels of this type I want non descript if it means no horrors or problems

This isn't a 5* hotel, but what it does, it does very well.
Comfortable, clean, spacious, quiet rooms. Lovely food. Ideal location for visiting Warwick and Twycross Zoo. No complaints at all!

My only criticism would be the fact that the front reception doors open directly into the restaurant. Can get a little chilly.

Just stayed for 1 night, ideal for what I needed, travelling on to Birmingham from Nottingham. The staff was helpful in all areas. The Wi-Fi was okay, the hotel gives you a password etc and it states on the paper that there is a charge, there is not. The Restaurant is open and lacks atmosphere but there are some large TV's in the same areas. The food in the evening was a bit bland, I had DB & B for £69 so overall the value was okay. Service was good. The night’s sleep was very good, my room was out the back, large and comfortable. Breakfast was in the same eating area as for dinner, self service which was okay, food okay, could not understand why no butter was being offered for toast etc.
I would stay here again for business but not somewhere for a holiday base.

Room Tip: The post code is not where the hotel is located, so bear this in mind. If not you will end up passin...

I spent the weekend at this hotel as part of a tour organised by Blakes Coaches of Tiverton

The Appleby Park is a hotel complex just off the M1 it is largely intended for the commercial traveller. It is modern clean and the reception and public areas are clean and appealing.

The hotel rooms are of a good size with all the amenities that would be expected for this type of hotel, the only thing that I could see was missing was a trouser press. The room was well heated and it was really quiet which was really surprising seeing how near it was to the M1.

As we were staying at the weekend the choice for the evening meal was a bit limited but the food was excellent service at this serving was also quite good as well. Breakfast however was self service with the food haphazardly arranged, as there weren't any trays provided I had to make several trips up to get each breakfast course.

The staff were excellent and very friendly and helpful and they worked very hard a couple of extra staff on duty would have made a lot of difference.

Myself and two friends stayed here following a day at Champneys Spring (which is literally 5 minutes up the road). The rooms were quiet despite being so close to M42. They were a good size with plentiful supplies of tea, coffee etc.The beds were comfortable and my only slight criticism was that the bathrooms could do with a bit of upgrading decor wise. We only had breakfast here which I have to say was very good.
Free wifi - just ask at Reception.
We chose not to eat at the hotel on the evening as we had spotted a good Indian Restaurant about 5 minutes up the road (Three Counties). Having been quoted a taxi charge of £14 to get there we at first opted to forget it but having put a call out to the restaurant they did in fact pick us up and return us back to the hotel following an excellent meal!
