Stayed in the hotel as my training venue was elsewhere on campus, but what a lovely place to stay! The campus itself is lovely, the hotel/conference center makes a very positive and professional impression when you enter. My room was perfect, with all you would expect of a good quality hotel. Very clean and spacious too. Breakfast was excellent with good quality food and a wide range to choose from. Would definitely recommend Scarman House to anyone, and would happily return.

I attended a meeting at the University of Warwick and was recommended to stay at Scarman. It is situated within the University campus hence very nice environment and quiet. It's probably not a choice for tourist as it is far from the city centre and you need to take a bus to go to the train or coach station.

The room is of good size and clean. Amenities are adequate and staff seem to be nice. Free and high speed wifi is great. There is a restaurant nearby and Tesco is about 20-25 mins walk - it is a nice walk on a sunny warm day.

Stay here a few times a year and the refurbished rooms are much improved. Bathrooms a little tired but always clean. Complimentary toiletries are a bad 80s throwback - brand ok but scent/colour just yuk. I'd requested a fridge for medication - via our booking company - which hasn't been a problem previously. The female receptionist gave off a couldn't care less attitude and said they didn't provide fridges for anyone since the refurbishment. Patently not true as I'd had one a few weeks before. I explained it was for medication and was told sorry I can't help. Actually was more a case of didn't want to help. Company checked for me afterwards - venue would have been happy to help, just not this employee clearly.

I have now stayed at Scarman and its near neighbour Radcliffe on a number of occasions for business meetings and it has never disappointed. The rooms are specious with comfortable beds. Wi fi is available and there is plenty of side table space to work, though a comfortable chair for relaxaton would be a welcome addition. The bathrooms have good showers though the bath may be a bit deep for more elderly users. The buffet breakfast is excellent with a wide choice of both hot and cold items. The rerstaurant serves good quality meals and there is a wide and fairly priced wine list, and a modest selection of beers and lagers. If you DO want to sit comfortably and read a book there is a large public lounge with complimentary tea/coffee and sometimes cakes/pastries/biscuits/fruit available 24 hours.All in all if you have business in Coventry or are on a course at the University yoyu couldnt do better though you do need a car as it is about three miles from the station.

Let's face it no one could describe Coventry as an especially green and pleasant city. The Cathedrals are stunning - both old and new, but after its destruction by bombing in the second world war, the city had to be rebuilt. So many of the old buildings of Coventry are now but a faded memory.

When I'm teaching or on business, I really appreciate somewhere quiet, ideally green, where I can can go for a walk before, after or sometimes instead of dinner. Coventry is not really a "walkers" city - certainly not central Coventry.

Hence, my love of the Scarman center. it is located five miles, or put another way, 20 minutes drive from central Coventry. It sits in the grounds of Warwick University. It is quiet, peaceful, landscaped and wonderfully free from traffic noise and pollution. And best of all, the minimum of concrete.

Okay, then add to that a welcoming front desk team, spacious, modern and well equipped rooms and an outstanding restaurant on-site and ask yourself, why would I want to stay at a city center location for pretty much the same price?

Scarman is a little busier, a little noisier a little bigger than its fellow location here, the Radcliffe center. But if you don't mind that, it is more modern and better appointed, at pretty much exactly the same price.

I'm pretty easy to please (yeah, right!). Give me a good location, a really top class team an outstanding restaurant and a green, peaceful location in easy reach of my business commitments and I'm happy!

Scarman continues to fit the bill!
Color me happy!

I regularly stay at Scarman House for work committments and it's is very comfortable. The refurbished rooms are tastefully completed and spacious. The rooms and bathrooms are always very clean and the staff are always very professional and courteous.

Breakfast has a wide variety to choose from and the dining area is also very clean and spacious.

I've had dinner before and its always been very nice.

Room Tip: Bring a pair of trainers if you enjoy walking and recommend the walk around Campus. If you don;t...
