Awful

Paper thin walls meant I could hear everything in the neighbouring rooms, and was woken up at five am by students singing outside. There were two shower heads, but no hot water, so I had to have a cold shower. Everything was very cheap and basic, but then I only paid a cheap price for it. Comfy bed.

last minute getaway

The staff were very good but I was dissapointed with the fact that there were single bedz in a double room and single duvets so you can imagine me and my partner we had to put the single beds together it was a disaster. Would only reccomend if you are travelling with a friend otherwise nope.......

Horrible

I had stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago and found it unpleasent but hoped that when I booked a couple of nights recently it might have been refurbished to the standard you would expect of a half way decent hotel - but it hasn't been. The location is excellent for buses, taxis and sight-seeing the centre of Coventry (i.e. Coventry Cathedral etc.) However, for a hotel describing itself as Coventry's premier hotel (ho!) and in such a central location, the Britannia chain have let this hotel slip into a standard which makes it unpleasent to stay at. As soon as you enter the lift to get to your room, it has dirty, stained very old carpets. The whole hotel has not been re-decorated for a very long time and is in desperate need of a good overhaul. The rooms are clean but very battered looking. The tv did not work and had a fuzzy picture with "snow" all over it. I telephoned down to reception to ask about it and they said that they had had a number of complaints that evening from other residents and the hotel would address the problem, the receptionist said "there must be a problem with the aerial"! I stayed there 2 nights and the tv reception stayed the same. There was no hot water to have a bath on both nights, only in the morning. My room key stopped working and on the second day I had to go down to reception twice before I could get in to my room. It has advertisements throughout the hotel advertising special rates for building contractors which appears to be the customers it is now aiming towards to fill its rooms. I will add that all staff were helpful but with the hotel in such a need of refurbishment, I don't think there is an awful lot they are able to do when faced with the problems encountered by guests. On the whole it is not a nice hotel to stay in and I will definitely not stay there again unless it is refurbished.

It is what it is... Don't expect

It is what it is... Don't expect anything and you will not be disappointed. One note - My room was very noisy. Apparently there are clubs around it and groups of noisy people were hanging around late at night.

The hotel needs a major renovation.

The hotel needs a major renovation. From the outside it looks terrible. The reason I stayed twice is the very convenient location. Its shabby but I guess most of the guests are short stay via travel agencies and bus tours but for me staying for over 2 weeks, it was the convenience only.

Overall cleanliness was good,

Overall cleanliness was good, however thick dust at the bottom of the wardrobe, for the price we paid was a bargain, One major reoccurring incident that housekeeping left our room door unlocked, this was reported to reception who stated our complaint would be passed to the manager. The following day on returning to our room in the evening found again our room door left unlocked this also happened to our friends room next to us, yet again complaint made to reception. It seems the security of our possessions was not a priority, a written complaint have been made to head office, 3 weeks on no reply received yet.

The hotel rates support the standards

The hotel rates support the standards within the hotel. The hotel does require major updating and its like stepping back to the 1970's. The hotel reception staff are not very customer focused. My stay was OK but the hotel could do with a complete re-vamp. The postive is that it is in a central location.
