As a conference centre, this is soulless but effective. As a hotel, the rooms are recently renovated and spatious, but basically just a well laid out Travelodge. There's nothing wrong with the place, and it's fairly quiet, but I wouldn't go here unless you're at a meeting.

Very nice and well equipped rooms, including a bathtub and television. However, a bit pricey compared to B&Bs nearby, but you can't beat the location if you are attending an event in the University since it is located right inside it

When invited to speak at a workshop at Warwick University I noticed with some trepidation that I was put up in college accomodation which in many cases implies run down student dorms. Not so at Scarman House which pleasantly surprised me with good quality acccomodation, artworks in many places, friendly staff and a good breakfeast (just the odd rule that... More

The hotel room was very clean and comfortable and the bathroom was very well stocked. I was very impressed with the catering involved where a decent sized bar and lounge area was provided which was easily shared with other guests from different conferences/events. Our evening meal was terrific with a very tasty array of meals and desserts. The conference suites... More

Now having stayed here 6 times the facilitates for training are excellent. The food tries to be much fancier than the majority want. On both night we eat else where. They have tea, coffee and many varieties hot and cold drinks available 24 hours. The buffet at lunch is a much better idea. Rooms ate acceptable and have all the... More

I was there for a week long conference. The conference facilities are pretty good. The rooms are small but clean and well maintained. I was pleasantly surprised by the lovely food in the in-house restaurant. Good variety for lunch and dinner, and well stocked coffee/tea. Staff is very friendly too.

Over the years, I have stayed in a wide variety of University-run accommodation centres. These, unfortunately, usually range somewhere between acceptable and utterly grim. Scarman, however, is different. It is very comfortable, set in very attractive grounds and with excellent facilities. The rooms are not huge (think Holiday Inn) but there are well appointed and are perfectly adequate for a... More

I attended a two day conference here this week and the standard of the facilities is excellent. Refreshments are very good and the restaurant food quality is superb. Rooms are well equipped and very comfortable. Anyone looking for a training/conference venue in a central location would be hard pressed to find one better than this.
