Dampness on the walls and carpet this place really is a dump!! Smells of damp!! Wouldn't even think about walking in the carpet in my bare feet! Just a pit and I have no choice but to stay here the full week. Do yourselves a favour even if you are struggling for accommodation don't book here.

We had to come here as our other booking was messed up by our office. Location was convenient but rooms were average. American styled motels but really thin walls so noise from other rooms is very much audible in adjacent rooms. We were on the ground floor and any movement in the room exactly above us would actually wake us... More

I don't understand these bad reviews, it's a cheap and cheerful hotel, what do people expect? We found the rooms were clean and comfortable with ample space and shelving. It was very quiet at night. The windows had safety catches but opened enough for air flow. We felt safe to have them open even on the ground floor All the... More

Everything you've read in the reviews on TA about this hotel is actually UNDERSTATING how grim it really is. Which is a pity as it's set in a pleasant woodland setting in a small green corner of Coventry close to the JLR Engineering Centre. But my stay included highlights such as: - Filthy carpets and a damp humid feel to... More

I stay at this hotel each week. I thought it worth while in telling you it's a hidden gem . Although the accommodation is basic, it more like a motel and is set in a quiet location amongst forestry and water. Those with pets would be welcome too. To note there is a virgin active gym right next door which... More

We stayed here after watching a concert at the Ricoh arena and it was fine. Slightly middle-of-nowhere, so be prepared to pay for cabs unless you're driving. Basic facilities in a chalet-style layout. The walls are paper thin, so if you're a light sleeper, take earplugs. If you just need somewhere to sleep and shower that's inexpensive, this ticks the...

Paid 30 quid for a nights stay, can't complain at all. Free parking, free WiFi, rooms are very basic but clean. Easy enough to find too, just set off a industrial estate. They do food here but can't comment on it as didn't get to eat here.
