3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is in need of a makeover, door missing from wardrobe, toilet handle broke, bathroom door stuck when you closed it. One night was enough here, traveled with a large group. Hotel is conveniently located and staff are friendly.

This place is like a time warp, it's falling to pieces and really tired. Paid £115 to stay in this dump. The bar is like something out of Phoenix nights. Please don't waste your money, stay somewhere else!

Have to admit the decor in this hotel has definitely seen better days. Well overdue for a refurb. Positives though are that it's really close to city centre and all shops bars etc. Have to find a car park as there's none at the hotel and they can be quite pricey.

Hey, its easy to be snooty about the Britannia chain. They basically bought up failing City Centre hotels (often quite posh ones) and sweated the assets by not spending very much money on them and making them into budget options. The Britannia in Coventry is in a great location. It right next to the Cathedral in the city centre. It... More

Perfect central location however the hotel is tired, dated and in a poor state of repair and cleanliness. Certainly not good value for money and would not stay here again for business or pleasure and would not recommend to anyone unless significant investment is made in upgrading and enhancing the hotel.

Stayed for a couple of nights on business. Hotel has a tired and run down feel to it. Even the exterior is cold and unwelcoming. Reception staff were helpful. Room itself was pretty basic. Bed was pretty hard and uncompromising, Old aluminium glazing did not block external sounds so I was treated to the church bell sounding the hour all... More

I stayed here for just one night and didn't stay for long during the day. I wouldn't call this place "terrible" but it certainly needs some extra care and maintenance. The positives: It's a great central location, super close to the cathedral and easy walking distance to the city centre shops. The staff member, Lance, who greeted me at check-in... More

Stayed here again for 3 nights, excellent value for money. Great location and friendly helpful staff. I stay in hotels regularly in coventry, visiting family & friends. I have stayed at several hotels to include the 4 star village Hotel & 4 star Premier Inn. I much prefer the Britannia as good staff and comfort are high priority on my... More

I came from London to spent the night at this hotel as I had an interview near its location. I thought the price for a bog standard single bed room on a Tuesday evening was very steep; £120. All the other hotels near by were fully booked though so I thought this would be somewhat premium. The toilet was filthy... More

Upon arrival we were greeted by a very friendly member of staff and given our key cards promptly. When we entered the room we initially thought it was just dated but as we explored the room we found some features which in a sense spoilt our visit. There was fresh towels and all the bathroom appeared clean apart from the... More
