Positive Reviews

Convenient location off the motorway

Guests often described this hotel's location just off the junction of the M6, M69 and A46 as being well-situated for easy access to central Coventry's museums, shopping and public transport links. It also put reviewers within striking distance of Birmingham and Leicester. Motorists appreciated the proximity of petrol stations and the ample free parking. Many visitors liked being on a retail park featuring dining options, supermarkets, a cinema and ten-pin bowling.

Positive opinions about rooms

The rooms won praise from reviewers for being spacious, clean, well-appointed and well-equipped with powerful showers and fancy Hypnos beds, which many called large and cosy. Budget-conscious visitors often felt their stays represented decent value for money due to the usually competitive room rates.

Praise for customer service and catering

Reviewers spoke highly about the cheerful and efficient customer service, describing members of staff as helpful, welcoming and friendly. It was a similar story at the Taybarns restaurant next door, where many guests said they enjoyed filling and tasty breakfasts and evening meals plus good service.

Negative Reviews

Some claims of poor Wi-Fi and TV reception

It was claimed that the free Wi-Fi speeds and signal strength were a bit underwhelming in some parts of the building. However, guests needing additional bandwidth had the option of upgrading to faster premium Wi-Fi for a small fee. Elsewhere, some travellers claimed there were certain TVs which had poor reception.

Occasional room temperature grumbles

Even with adjustable air-conditioning controls in the rooms, some guests felt uncomfortably warm or cold at times in the warmest and coldest weather.

Nuisance noises reported

Some light sleepers reported being able to hear occasional noise from neighbouring rooms and corridors a little too easily. There were also claims of loud air-conditioning and noise from the car park at times.
