I really like Kenilworth, I stay there at least 3 times every year , but this year I could not stay in the Bakers Arms ( the Pub not the actual Baker ) and myself and coleuges had to stay in the fishy hotel next door. Milsoms i am lead to beleive is a excellant Fish based restaurant. Now before I carry on I must declare a interest in that I really love fish ( not the one from Marillion although Script for a jesters tear is one of my favourite prog albums ) but I love Fish so much that like all other animals I won't eat them. So a Vegetarin in a fish based hotel is not a great start, but for now I am prepared to silo that thought until the Vegetarian revolution when we plan to enslave all the meat eaters until they convert.
So the good things first, the WiFi is fine, and you can get Radio 4 ok the TV. The bar area is OK , althou i notice the selection of real ales has dropped down slighly .
The main problem is that , My Nan told me never to get to close to the TV as your eyes will go square , but in the size of the room I had no choice. The last time I slept in a single bed I was 6 , I am now 45 and not best suited to a child's bed ( even Premier Inns have doubles ) . Due to the room size there were also horribly hot , and the only openable window was on to a flat roof which meant if anybody else opened there window you could hear complete conversations ( and I did and will not breathe a word about the things you purchased in SoHo , perversion is only a matter of what you think is normal)
The bathroom was OK , but I don't understand when space is tight why they bother with a bath and Shower combination, it's the 21st century ,we don't need Baths we can cope with just showers.
And then the breakfast....I resorted to offering the chef my watch to allow him to actually cook the boiled eggs. 2 days in a row I sent them back and had scrambled eggs.
The staff in the hotel part are nice, the serving staff in the breakfast room are at best poor.
My advise is STAY AT THE BAKERS ARMS.
