“Quite possibly the best Holiday Inn”
Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

As part of my job I spend a lot of time in very many different hotel across the UK. Whenever possible I stay at Holiday Inn mainly because you can usually be sure of what you are going to get. With some variations in decor and occasionally some differences in the level of service from staff more often than not they all conform to the corporate standard - no surprises which is the last thing I want after a long working day and late arrival.

This Holiday Inn however always goes beyond what is expected and consistently exceeds expectations. I have yet to encounter any member of staff, from checking to dining to check out, who are anything less than friendly, helpful and committed to providing the highest level of service.

The hotel itself is well maintained. Clean. With Modern up to date decor and what's more its own Starbucks just off the main bar. The free wi-fi is also a God send (take note other hotels that's right FREE wifi!)

The restaurant and room service choices are superb and the food is well prepared using fresh ingredients and well presented. It is also appreciated that they offer healthy options with nutritional information printed on the menu. When you stay in as many hotels as I must having a healthy alternative to constant fare of steaks pizzas and burgers is very welcome. My only disappointment on this visit was that they have removed my favourite dish from the menu - this isn't a real criticism there was still plenty of mouthwatering choices its just I loved the cod and rice - please bring it back soon! :-) :-)

The only really flea in the ointment at this venue is the relatively small car park. I know there isn't anything that can be done about this but when you arrive late at night and can't park it can be a bit annoying.

All in all a great hotel. Keep up the good work!!

Thank you very much for your review and I am glad that you had a lovely stay with us here at The Holiday Inn Kenilworth. In regards to your point about the car parking we do have an overflow car park 2 minutes walk away which we can issue tickets for at reception. Also we are sorry that we have taken you favourite dish off the menu but next time you come maybe ask the Chef and see what we can do for you.

We look forward to welcoming you back

Kind Regards
Louise Sheepy

I stayed here for 2 nights with my elderly mother and we booked into the accessible room 001 because of mobility issues. I worried at first because the was right next to the Starbucks concession but there was no noise. Equally there was a fairly noisy party one night but the staff assured us that the party would finish at midnight... and it did. To be fair, once the room door was closed, there was very little noise.
The breakfasts were very good... everything that could be expected and cooked freshly for us on one morning.
The accessible room was huge... plenty of room for circulation and with one huge double bed and a sofa bed. There was a very useful work/dressing surface in the centre of the room but the lighting was rather too low for us and we would have preferred brighter lighting.
The bathroom was 'wet room' style and unfortunately, the water didn't drain away as it should have done but I have every hope that the helpful staff will attempt to sort this out. The wash hand-basin was incredibly small and so we managed to get water on the floor even though we tried hard to avoid this. I don't think that these issues with water on the floor are much of an issue if you are in a wheelchair but they weren't so good if you are a bit tottery on your legs anyway! My mother found the taps quite stiff but I'm sure the staff will respond to our feedback.
The staff in the hotel couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. I look forward to staying there again.

Room Tip: We used 001 - the accessible room. Please see my comments above

Stayed here for four nights recently while on business in Coventry. The hotel was pretty good, the room clean and comfortable and Kenilworth itself was very nice - the hotel looks a little out of place looming over the centre of the town. Extra circle for the staff and service, very professional and friendly. I accidentally left my lap top in the room and a member if staff was kind enough to retrieve my phone number and ring me before posting it back.

Have stayed here quite a few times now and have always found the staff extremely helpful and accommodating. Great selection for breakfast and good selection for dinner if you are staying on your own. The main feature of this hotel is its location to the fantastic selection of restaurants within walking distance.

Room Tip: Book more than a week in advance for the best deals

What a superb Holiday Inn. Totally unexpected from an underwhelming office block style building. Rooms are actually of a much higher quality than one would expect. Two Double bedrooms are spacious , well appointed . Many extra touches that should not be automatic at this price bracket. Kenilworth is an unassuming town, and this hotel actually stands out. Don't let the exterior fool you, this is a very nice property.
