I booked in last minute for a Saturday night at the Avenue Lodge Guest House. On arrival, I was told that the owner now owns both the Avenue Lodge Guest House and the Trendway Guest House down the road (hence I have posted the review on the tripadvisor pages of both of these guest houses). A quick walk down the road took me to my room in the Trendway Guest House. I'd booked a single, but had a triple to myself, which was a bonus. It was fairly clean, but the bathroom was cramped and smelt very funny and the room decor was dated. The TV was old with just analogue channels and there was no free wi-fi at Trendway as advertised on the Avenue Lodge website.
On arrival I was told that breakfast was servied from 7.30-9.30am, but the following morning the breakfast room was dead at 9.05am. A phone call to the owner (who lives in another separate building down the road - hence, no-one is ever about) was followed by an argument stating that breakfast is served 7.30-8.30am only and that I must have got it wrong; I can't see any reason why I would have got this fact wrong (whether Trendway and Avenue Lodge have different or adjacent breakfast time slots and I was given the wrong information I do not know), but nonetheless serving breakfast for one hour only at 7.30-8.30am on a Sunday is ridiculous! I was offerred no breakfast and left unhappy.
There was also no off road parking as advertised on the website, and the on-road parking is restricted between 8am and 8pm to 2 hours with no return within 4 hours; hence, if you arrive before 6pm, you may have problems.
£38 for a single for one night is not cheap either. Overall, a massive disappointment and a misleading website. Not recommended and plenty of better places about in Leamington Spa - avoid!
