Macdonald Ansty Hall
Ranked #6 of 39 Hotels in Coventry

Reviewed December 7, 2009

As always, I look for 3 main things when choosing accomodation for leisure trips with my family - cleanliness, comfort and decor/ambiance. Ansty Hall scores top marks for all 3 - don't hesitate to stay here.

Ansty Hall is is 5 mins off the M6 and 10 mins from Coventry. Its set in its own grounds just off the main road. We initially stayed in one of the new buildings next to the original building and the standard was very decent and importantly clean! It makes a very suitable place for business people to stay but be out of the city. It seems like a venue that holds lots of meetings and weddings and is set up accordingly. That said, we're don't usually use swimming pools and spa's so we didnt miss anything.

I discovered on day 2 that we were not in an Executive Room as booked and we moved to the main building to try a suite for the last night. The reception discounted the rate automatically given the previous point. The suite is furnished to a high standard with a lovely big bed, modern furnishings and a clean, crisp bathroom. I also saw one of their 'feature rooms' and its clear that the hotel has been very well refurbished in the last few years - so you dont need to be concerned about decor or ambiance.

Overall the Ansty Hall exceeded my expectations with a high standard of furnishings, clean rooms and decent service.

We held our wedding reception at Ansty Hall in April 2009 & have to say the venue, staff - everything was perfect. We booked The Orangery Room for wedding breakfast for 50 people & evening reception for 100. We had been very specific (and a little bridezilla demanding!) about quality of food & were not let down - starter & dessert were amazing, but the main was outstanding - the lamb was cooked pink perfection & all tables served with yummy crunchy roast potato's, with the most delicious red cabbage with cream & bacon I have ever eaten. At the evening reception we had Pie selection with jacket potatos & salad - on the night people were actually discussing which was the most delicious & we are still complimented to this day on the food. I would go back just for pie every week given a chance!

The Bedrooms were huge & I stayed the night before and was given complimentary upgrade. We were so impressed with the Wedding Suite we have decided to stay there for our anniversary.

The staff are amazing - the Hotel Manager is the most affable, professional & dedicated manager I have ever met. The reception staff, cleaners, cooks - everyone was lovely & we felt like royalty. All our guests were impressed with care & attention - coming away feeling that they had had a special stay.

DJ recommended by hotel was spot on & had the whole wedding party doing the conga outside the Oragnery, around the grounds & back again!

I would not change a single thing about our wedding at Ansty - perfect!

The surrounding are lovely, the rooms are so comfortable, the food delicious, the attentiveness from staff great. The problem was that the shower in our room alternately scalded and / or froze you. It was impossible to adjust the thermostat. We (2 people in the room) were there for one night and informed the manager in the morning. We were told there was nothing they could do but they would give us £20 off our bill!! We found this attitude appalling. Not a nice way to be treated at all. My judgement is that staff / managers are very nice whilst things are going well, but when it comes down to a problem, there is very little patience or understanding. Hence the title above.

My wife and I stayed at the Ansty Hall for 2 nights on an "Autumn Break". The welcome at Reception was warm, friendly and efficient and each time we passed Reception we were spoken to. We were allocated a good sized room on the top floor of the 'Hall' which was well furnished and had a refurbished bathroom. Unfortunately when we looked closer in the bathroom we found about 20 dead or nearly dead flies with no indication where they had come from. I called Reception and in a short time a senior member of staff came to the room, armed with fly spray! A quick look and he left offering to find us another room. The whole problem was resolved in, about, 15 minutes and we were moved to another, even better, room.

We had no other problems, neither were we affected by a wedding party who were located in the 'new' block. The restaurant service was efficient and the quality and quantity of food good. However neither the menu choice (which was fairly limited) nor the fish special changed each day and, if we had been staying more than a couple of days, it would have been difficult to choose something different. Also each menu item was individually priced so that to have a three course meal (coffee was extra) within the 'dinner allowance' of £25 limited the choice even further. Even the bread was an additional charge.

All in all our experience was a good one and we would return to this hotel but we did feel that Macdonalds were trying to charge us for as much as possible and could have been more generous in their 'dinner allowance'.

Got a fantastic deal at this hotel, stayed last Saturday night just for a random break away from home. Absolutely fantasitc! Couldn't fault it, we found a deal on their website for dinner, bed, breakfast and chocolates and champagne in the room on arrival all for £120! Couldn't believe what good value it was. We got a complimentary upgrade when we arrived, the receptionist (Annette) couldn't have been more helpful. Room was fantastic, very quiet even though there was a wedding on. Ideal if you want a quiet, romantic night away. Dinner was good, the only thing i'd say was I felt the menu was quite limited (a lot of fish) and i'm not by any means what you would call a fussy eater. We had breakfast in our room the following morning and it's clear why they've won awards for their breakfast - delicious! Came away feeling totally relaxed and like we'd been in our own little world for 24 hours - would definately recommend, especially if you can find an offer like we did.

Having stayed at this hotel on two previous occasions for business and had a great nights sleep, I picked this hotel for a two night break with my husband.
We decided to stay here as a base for visiting warwick castle and stratford upon avon which are both easy to get to on the A46.
The hotel itself is lovely, we had a lovely spacious room with a very comfortable bed and ample size en-suite. We ate in the hotel restaurant on the 1st night, the food was excellentof a very good standard but quite expensive so we chose to do this one meal then the 2nd night we ate at a "frankie and bennys" which is about a five minute drive away in a cinema complex with a large tesco store opposite.
The only concern we had was that our room was on a corner block of the building which seemed to be above the kitchens and some staff were rather loud and slammed doors quite a bit early in the morning, also the delivery vans would pull up outside. We did report this to reception but by no means did it spoil our stay, the staff were great particurlarly steve on the front desk (very helpful and always polite), the food excellent, fantastic bed, great service. Well recommended to all, I've worked in a hotel before and am very picky and always do my research before picking a hotel to stay at and this one gets the thumbs up, If it had a pool it would be amazing!!
