I needed a cheap place to stay while in Coventry on business. I really should have read the reviews before booking this place! The hotel entrance felt like i was back in the 1970s, reception was polite and fast thank god as the wind whistling in through the reception door was so bad the poor receptionist was having to wear a thick wool scarf!
Had booked a double room, Instead I had a twin - pretty pointless for a solo traveller! Slept very badly as the central heating in the room seemed to come on and off at odd times and made a very loud rattling sound! The room was clean if pretty sparse and the furniture had seen better days.
Breakfast was more to be endured than enjoyed. The first morning I filled the plate with a few hot items, tried each in turn and spat them back onto the plate, how the hell do you get mushroom wrong! opted for cereal and yoghurt but the yoghurt was in one large bowl with no idea how old it was. The next morning the toaster started to catch fire, no staff were on hand and a guest had to extract the burning toast caught in the machine.
The whole place needs pulling down, it just spoils the view of the cathedral.
