“Exactly what you would expect - good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Nice friendly staff, breakfast good, air conditioning working, furniture perfectly OK. Only down side was the typical smal hotel bathroom/shower - a little grubby.

Car parking and WiFi free (included in advertised room rate) and WiFi good.

Overall though good value for money, would use again.

Visited hotel at Easter, was shown nice rooms. Booked several rooms a week later based on this viewing. When we arrived we had nasty rooms in a part of the hotel we had not been shown at all. The rat traps outside did not give confidence but when I went in the room I was quite glad of them because it looked like they would have liked the bathroom. It was dirty, made in a hurry unfinished and I could not shower in it. The tiles were orange with mould and in need of a scrub. Simple stuff, a bit of bleach. We booked several rooms and had to cancel one a few days before. When I asked to change rooms I was told they were full. When we came to check out we were told we had to pay for the room we did not use despite it being booked. So they got twice as much money for the room. That is unfair and greedy. On the plus side the staff were friendly and the breakfast was acceptable. I am usually really happy with Best Western but this one lets them down. Won't stay here again.

Room Tip: If you do stay here, don't have rooms on ground floor and see the actual room first.

We have stayed at the Peacock Hotel twice now as my partner and I often visit the University of Warwick. We recently visited for my partners doctoral graduation and had a really lovely experience. I would throughly reccommend paying the extra £20 to get a Club room as they are extremely spacious, beautifully decorated and a bargain (I only paid £80/night including breakfast). As we were celebrating I asked the bar staff for a small wine bucket with ice which they quickly provided me with to take up to our room. Breakfast was deliciously prepared in a lovely environment. The hotel is also conveniently located in the centre of Kenilworth within walking distance of several restaurants and pubs.

Will definitely be back again.

Room Tip: Pay the little bit extra for a Club Room, it is excellent value for money.

Stayed here for two nights - first night, got to the room which was very clean but a little tired looking. The sink in the bathroom was cracked and caused water to leak onto the bathroom floor - went straight to reception and told them and without any problem was moved immediately to the most beautiful superior room at the front of the hotel. Unfortunately that room was booked the following night so was moved to a 'club room' which again was more than adequate and again, clean and tidy (although the shower could have done with being just a little more powerful). We were on a bed and breakfast basis and the breakfast was absolutely fine - choice of cooked or buffet/continental style with excellent service. For the money we paid, we couldn't have asked for more and would definitely consider using this hotel again if we were in the area

This hotel was an excellent choice as a base for day trips using a rental car. The parking is ample in the back of hotel. The room was on the top floor and was comfortable and clean although semi dated.

I have stayed several times at this hotel & have always had a pleasant experience.

On my first occasion I booked for 2 nights & asked for a free upgrade using my Best Western rewards card, unfortunately an upgrade was not available for the first night & I stayed in a standard room. The room was ok, clean but tired & in need of refurbishment.

On my second night I moved into a superior room & was pleasantly surprised at the size & quality of the room.
There was a large kingsize bed which was very comfortable & included soft pillows & quality bedding. Fixtures & fittings included a sound system, DVD player, flat screen T.V with free view channels & tea making facilities. The bathroom included a freestanding roll top bath & a large shower cubicle, mosaic floors & fully tiled walls. The whole room was spotlessly clean & you would easily pay £120/ night for this standard of room in a large chain hotel.
The staff are friendly, attentive & polite & are keen to please.
The hotel also has a restaurant serving Malaysian cuisine, although I have only ever seen one couple eating in there in the evening. There are good hand written reviews for the restaurant displayed in reception but this doesn't seem to reflect the number of diners. The menu does appear very expensive & is probably the reason behind the empty tables. I think the hotel needs to look closely at the menu prices & branding which seems very overbearing & relaunch the restaurant with a new more restricted menu & lowers prices.
This aside, I would highly recommend the Peacock Hotel for both business trips & weekend breaks for couples.

Room Tip: Worth paying the extra to upgrade to a superior room. Better still join Best Western reward & up...

The warm and freindly welcome is the begining of an enjoyable trip. The rooms are very neat and tidy with all the usual bits and pieces. The restaurant serves food of a high standard of mainly Indian dishes. All the staff that I had dealings with, were helpful and efficient, whether checking on or out, or serving in the restaurant.

Room Tip: Car parking is limited so when busy finding a space can be akward.
