Reviewed April 8, 2013

Booked on the basis of getting a refurbished room as I had read the other reviews. I had to ask for a confirmation to be sent which was a little odd. On arrival I said I was expecting this type of room unfortunately this had not been allocated, in addition the room rate was £25 in excess of what was quoted. That said both these problems were immediately rectified - good job the place was not full. The reception areas (which was not easy to find on foot) have obviously been refurbished with over the top chandaliers and new furniture but although my room was refurbished quite nicely in the 'living' area the bathroom was not with mouldy grouting and sealant. Also the heating appeared to be off when I got up which made a shower a little uncomfortable. Breakfast once I found out where it was was fine, nothing special but I only paid £40 B&B so more than adequate, however it appears that the reception staff double up as breakfast staff which means getting reception tasks done rather difficult during breakfast.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a refurbished room, preferably with refurbed bathroom away from the funcyion r...

Arrived 5pm to find the room not cleaned. Moved to another room which someone appeared to be occupying. Moved to another room...cleaner went in beforehand! Was allowed in 10mins later to find the stench of smoke unbareable. Moved to the 4th room. On undressing for the shower realised there was no hot water. An hour and a half after arriving at the hotel had still not found a satisfactory room. Had to shower in seperate rooms just to get hot water (one of which did not have a light so was showering in the dark!). In the morning by breakfast was not ready by quarter past 8 when the hotel states it starts at 8am. Juice machine not working. Toasters not plugged in. Shambolic organisation and very short staffed. Unfortunately not a pleasant stay. No refund offered.

Probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Website lists all amenities that you would expect, and many cases require. The reality is completely different. Dirty rooms, carpets and walls are unbelievable, no room service, no wifi in rooms, heating is either on full or off, no proper restaurant, only very limited bar snack menu available. Everything about this place is depressing and in need of total refurbishment. I had booked for 5 nights and left after 1 very uncomfortable night.

Have stayed here many times in the past. Excellent value, rooms are equipped with large flat screen tv's, comfortable beds. Recently undergone a refurbishment which has made an improvement all round. Agree with other reviews regarding the small showers but other comments seem a bit harsh. The Allesley is not too difficult to find & is conveniently located for Coventry, Birmingham Airport & NEC, If taxis cannot find the hotel, perhaps the drivers need to do some research !

This hotel has a very very bright and well kept reception but as far as we saw thats where it ends. The room was small the bed was very comfortable and clean but the pillows were very hard almost like sand bags the soft furnishings were stained and the carpets looked tired and in need of a clean, the bathroom was small and the shower was not big enough for a comfortable shower we got the room for £30 and felt cheated at that price the published price was over £50 and is definately not worth that. The staff are polite at the hotel but have a very relaxed way of disapearing leaving people to wait for ages until they reappear

Worst experience ever!

Staff was worst customer service ever. Food pathatic (even cheap value frozen food is better).
Cheap quality curtains, towels, etc. Dirty place, rooms, dishes, tables, curtains, bed, etc.

Location is terrible too. No one can find it. Even taxis struggle and many calls to the reception to find the location failed because staff is useless on the other end of the phone.
Useless, Useless, Useless and simply Useless....!
