I have stayed at the Hylands twice, and it is a very low-budget hotel. Peeling wallpaper, some mould in the bathroom, a lot of noise all night from the next room (arguments or something else...). I was also extremely disappointed that there was no hot water on my second stay! The staff were polite, but disinterested. The hotel regularly offers the lowest room rates in Coventry, and to an extent you get what you pay for, but I think I'll pay a bit more in future and go elsewhere.
However, going into the restaurant attached to the hotel is like entering a different world. The Jeera Indian Restaurant is very clean, smart, and modern looking, and seems to have been refurbished recently. I really enjoyed the food: it's a fairly conventional indian menu, delicious, not too oily. The paratha I tried had a nice flaky texture, the house wine was fine, the whole meal was very tasty. Service was very polite and attentive. I would put this high up on my list of favourite Indian restaurants! The only drawback is that it was almost empty, so the atmosphere was a bit strange. I would encourage people to give it a try, it deserves more customers. I hope to return to Jeera, but I'll be avoiding the hotel!
