I have stayed in this hotel twice. Once in a standard room and once in an executive room. The standard rooms had a jacuzzi bath tub which was an interesting touch. The room was fairly spacious, clean, large double bed, desk with a chair and a television. However the furnishing were very dated and worn. The Superior room was quite a big room, there were the same facilities as the standard room. However, again the room was very dated and we were situated next to some sort of plant room/mechanical room, which was noisy. We did not bother to change the room as it was only one night.
Considering that this hotel is part of a chain I would have expected a much higher standard of fixtures and fittings, and at least a room that has been update in the past 20 years. However the room is extremely dated and this shows with very shabby decoration and finish that appears to be poorly maintained. There are hotel chains, such as Premier Inn, that are relatively contemporary in décor, clean and fresh interior and much better value. Britannia type hotels seem a dying breed, as they are barely able to compete with other kinds of hotel that have been recently updated and modernised that are better priced and have much better quality finish and have not been left to deteriorate like the Coventry city centre Britannia.
Breakfast was fine, a normal buffet English breakfast, fruits, cereals, fruit juice, tea and coffee. The service was average, not non-existent but not amazing either.
I think this hotel is average, and would only recommend it if you paid a reasonable price (we paid £29 for two people for one night). Considering some of the rooms are priced up to £137 I would not even bother paying anywhere near that price. We stayed quite a while back so maybe some things have changed.
