“Shh, don't tell too many people!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2007

Rugby and Coventry are ugly towns, so it is wonderful to come upon the Village Green, a small, cozy, very clean place just down the road, featuring the kind of friendly welcome, charm and comfort you always hope to find, slightly off the beaten track (but not really, as it is ten minutes from the M1 motorway). NOT a big hotel, just a tiny, very English place-- albeit with smiling eastern-European help in the back, like most hotels in the U.K. these days-- where you are treated as an individual, and remembered when you come back.

It is not a big place, and if you come in after about eight p.m., they will give you a code to get in ("The whole village knows it") and leave your keys on the desk. There are steps up even to the ground floor rooms, stairs and no elevator to the upper floor, which might be hard for some people. The rooms are fairly small but pretty and well furnished, most with a desk and chair, some with armchairs as well, and the showers are plain but clean with plenty of switch-on hot water. It is a pleasant hotel for a short stay, but not a place to hang out, as there are no public rooms except the breakfast room.

The rooms are named after significant people who have passed through Dunchurch, a quaint village with several thatched roofs that used to be a major coaching stop on the route north from London-- hence the Guy Fawkes plot connection. The church and pretty churchyard are a nice little walk, and across the street is the bustling Dun Cow pub with real fires and very decent food--I especially like the fish and chips and the desserts.

My only complaint is not with the hotel but with the locals. My rented car, a Mercedes (the only one available without a stick shift, but this ostentation apparently annoyed someone), was "keyed" while in the parking lot of the Dun Cow, and I had to pay 175 pounds to the rental company. I have often been warned that the parking officials are strict here as well, so get advice about where to leave your car.

Our son found this little gem where four of spent a wonderful night while touring the country side of South Western England recently.
Rather than staying in the actual hotel part we were in a detached unit at the back of the hotel. This unit had two bedrooms each with its own bathroom, a living area and kitchen. One of the great things was that the kitchen was very well stocked with a wide range of breakfast foods and drinks, this enabled us to have breakfast in the comfort of our own kitchen without having to get dressed and go to the main dining room.
Everything about the unit was wonderful, very clean and well maintained, well set out and it had ample parking right outside our door.
The staff were very helpful and recommended a nice restaurant just around the corner for our evening meal.
The village of Dunchurch is a quaint little English village with a significant history connected to Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspiritors
We can very highly recommend this unit in the hotel especially where four people are traveling together.
