I stayed for 5 nights on a business trip to Coventry and was pleasantly surprised at how good this hotel is.
Firstly my air conditioned bedroom was nicely decorated and clean although a little small - but the bed was comfy!
The small gym and pool facilities are good and I used them every evening. Gym has 3 running machines, climber and 1 bike. There are several resistances machines including a lat and row machine, pec machine and a good leg press machine. Dumbells go up to 30kg which is a welcome surprise.
But the reason I give this hotel 5 stars is the truly excellent staff and restaurant. Their professional manners, friendliness and helpfulness were better than any hotel I've stayed in for a few years and I stay in over 20+ hotels each year.
The restaurant and bar food is excellent, breakfast is very good but the evening meals are superb. I normally eat out of the hotel but the food was so good and varied I decided to eat in every night and enjoyed a carvery and an Italian buffet. A la carte is also excellent and you must try some of their deserts! The food is so good I would recommend locals to try this restaurant.
For convenience, there is a Lidl, Asda and Tesco a short walk away.
In summary, an excellent hotel with truly excellent staff and a great restaurant, good facilities and prices. Well deserved 5 stars.
