Good breakfast The room we were initially given had not been serviced but that was soon rectified.Also the TV didn't work properly but, again, this was soon recyified.
Very good value for money, clean and comfortable, free parking and breakfast was adequate. Recently refurbished. Deffinately recommend this to others.
Great value for money, I paid £39 for this room at short notice. The staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. The location was great for the city centre, which was within walking distance. Very clean hotel lobby and room The shower was a wee bit tricky to turn on/off but otherwise fine
Very friendly staff who were extremely helpful and efficient. The restaurant provided good food and excellant value as did the hotel accomodation. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel and its staff to friends looking to stay in a hotel in this area. None
The hotel was really nice considering it is such a reasonable price. Breakfast in the morning started at 7, but was not ready at 7.. Often took about 10 minutes for everything to come out - so not suitable for those that need to leave early.
Not a great deal to be honest. Arrived at 7pm and told could not have a meal as there was a christmas party, kept awake most of the night by the party goers banging doors screaming and shouting and then arrived for our continental breakfast to see a box of cereal on offer and that was it!! We left at that point and explained to the receptionist the situation and was looked at blankly!!! Most of it, the reception area has obviously been updated and no doubt the rooms are on the cards! Booked the suite and it did not materialise, we had a fairly "old looking" room.
The swimming pool facilities were good. The bar service was poor and the size of the meal was poor value for money. There did not appear to be enough staff for the size of the hotel. The record of our booking was not on computer and they blamed the booking company which was very unprofessional. Also wrongly stated I was room only and not bed and breakfast.
lovely tranquil setting and good standard of facilities and food.
Very clean Very poor service especially in bar
I wasnt happy with the first room they provided, but they gave me an upgrade without fuss. the second room was lovely, and the spa was well appointed The standard rooms were small and needed updating.
food / room service was good heating was broken, hairs on the bathroom floor and carpet grubby
Ease of booking through this web site The food standards have dropped. Charging for WiFi access which didn't actually work. Pre-authorising my credit card for "added incidentals" which apparently is for "my convenience"
Staff reacted well to setbacks. Very nice room (albeit next to car park), but some lights didn't work. Excellent swimming pool. Our room was for disabled people, and had no shower facility and an awkward bathtub. There was no TV remote or tea/coffe making facilities, but staff quickly remedied this. Directions for getting to hotel need to be reviewed.
Setting and atmosphere. Very slow bar service. No draught beers or lagers available, apparently sold out. Beer was obtained by the manager after I complained.
easy access to major cities and tourist locations, eg Stratford the bar was unusable as there was a wedding reception and for most of the evening only had one bar man serving, hence very slow service.
The geography of the hotel with steps and stairs made it difficult to move luggage around. I have a case on wheels like many to save carrying. I thought that email assess in an improved and upgraded hotel was poor only really being available in the common areas.
Cheap and clean. Decent bed and had a bath. Wifi was free (but signal was v poor). Kettle stand was broken but still worked. Heating was only just adequate. Pillows were a little too big.
Good reception on arrival. Facilities in room very good. Slightly shabby appearance on stairway to rooms
Friendly Staff, Pleasant atmosphere, appearance or room and ammenities, clean and comfortable. Unfortunately my room had a unpleasant odour, based on this, I will not be staying at the Campanile again, nor will I be recommending it. Campanile,
The staff were pleasant and helpful and the evening bar meal was to an acceptable standard. Although clean the room decor was tired and could do with updating. The bathroom was particularliy in need of some work.
The room was simple but had everything we needed
I found the rooms clean and well equiped, the staff were very friendly and helpful and it was good value for money, i would come here again.
Affordable, easy to find, clean, quiet
This is one of our favorite hotels. Good beds and baths at a very good price. What more can you ask for???
The hotel is ideally situated close to the Ricoh Arena which made attending our trade show very easy. Comfortable rooms and helpfull staff.
A bit disappointed that the hotel advertised all in one television but the internet did not work
Service ferom staff was kind and excellent Food was way too expensive bordwering on the extortionate
room was a good size - clean and well equipped food was really poor. First night I had a cheeseburger - it came on a hard, stale bun and the plate was covered in paprika. Not nice and not cheap either. Second night was better - greek meze platter - but low quality for the price.
very dog friendly the only slight nag would be it was advertised as having a swimming pool however the pool was covered and could not be used
Excellent breakfast. Pillows were just awful. So bad infact I had an awful sleep (and I can sleep anywere). They were like a solid round cushion. Crazy.
Very friendly staff
very good for the ricoh sports and easy to get to off the M6
The mattress was tremendous did not get the morning paper i ordered
The standards of the rooms. The price of car parking.
Value for money as we booked through a last minute website and with today's prices for hotels of this calibre, we thought it good value. Nothing. All fine (apart from a rowdy party taking place on the Saturday evening!)
stayed on 3rd floor; room was clean, bed uncomfortable and carpets were dirty; not the usual high standards we are use to here
the retail close by some things
My room was lovely - spacious and airy and the air conditioning was a Godsend! I was disappointed with the bar staff. I had a drink, moved away from the bar and then returned around an hour later. Unfortunately, my dirty crockery from earlier had still not been cleared away! And the barman was stood behind the bar with no other customers and nothing to do!
catering was good n/a
The hotel staff were extremely helpful with any queries and they very very friendly.
The location was excellent. Hotel was very in every for a hilton Very bad smell through the hotel.. Very dated in every way.
The hotel is in a quiet location, but well connected and close to the main roads. The facilities are modern and well maintained.
Quiet area of Coventry, nice and peaceful after the hustle and bustle of the 'city areas'. We had a large room with a large, very comfortable bed. Having checked in, we entered our room to discover a 'bomb site' (the room had not been made up after the previous occupant). We were upgraded to a better room but the hotel had two rather disappointing points that should be addressed ... The corridors were 'littered' with the remnants of peoples food and drink from their rooms (and these items stayed outside of the rooms, in the corridors, overnight and were still there the next mid morning) ... and ... the hotel is understaffed, there was a painfully slow wait for breakfast and checking out.
Ease of checking in and out. The location was ideal for our purpose. However the pool was too crowded to use during our stay.
The Hotel was well situated for our needs with very friendly and helpful staff, a good restaurant and excellent value.
Not all the staff were helpful or polite.
Because I was down for a wedding the hotel was suitable for a function tobe held in.
when we arrived there was a queue, only one person on reception,but very friendly. no sheets for the wee ones bed, asked 3 times for sheets to be put in her room, she ended up sleeping on a bare mattress, not impressed, nice pub food but took forever to come.
The Hotel rooms and surroundings were nice and comfortable. The bar staff and reception were helpful and efficient. There was a great atmosphere in the bar. Food was excellent and plentiful. Good locatiton too The restaraunt staff were poor. Particularly at breakfast time. There did not seem to be any maagement present at breakfast time and staff had no interest in making sure you were looked after. 2 mornings we had to ask for basics like cups for our coffee, milk, knives and forks. The staff did not respond pleasantly to this, like it was too much work for them. I did notice a change on Monday morning when we were looked after very well but the staff were also different.
Comfy beds and good breakfast staff friendly Could not find second towel and tea, coffee and kettle kept in a draw
Ease of booking in, room size, location for arranged meal near NEC. Thickness of walls which moved everytime adjacent room slammed door in early hours, shower over bath always dangerous if slip (has happended in Austria-still hurts) - shower cubicle better, bed not stable so creak/move with every twist or turn, mini bar be handy but not specified on booking so aware not available. paper requested when we were prompted but no show up to check out time - issued free when leaving which nice touch as bill paid at that stage
Easy parking, efficient service in restuarant and reception Decor a little shabby and the bathroom bin had not been emptied after the previous occupant left.
Dinner was very good and the lounge/ lobby area is very impressive and was tastefully dressed for Christmas They gave my 2 subordinates free upgrades to 'executive' rooms and passed me over in the process - bodes well for their future prospects with our company :)
Pleasant friendly reception and dining staff. I found the bed extremely uncomfortable. Everything else was great, but I would not stay again because of the bed - it was far too hard.
The good service atmosphere and ambience none
The atmosphere was good. We came for a party and had a wonderful time None
The room we upgraded to was lovely. We had to pay to upgrade to a warmer room. The room we were first allocated was very cold, almost fridge like and the cistern took a great length of time to flush. The drink i was served at the bar had to be returned because the soda was flat so we requested an upgrade. The upgraded room was beautiful. God help anyone who had to stop in the modern wing.
Location - close to my office The rooms are awful - need a serious updating and any form of soundproofing would be good. I felt like I was sharing!!
Good value for money The rooms dated and modernizing brochure showed a lovely. Hotel and was misleading as it did not show the wing we were in. It was if we were staying in a motel from the sixties
Altough my room8 was fine, i booked 3 rooms one of which was poor, unable to flush wc at 3am. lacked alittle atmospere
Clean good bed nice space good facilities/good None!
Clean,modern, attractive Staff not good at helping, bad language
The hotel was easy to fine and ideally situated for visiting the centre of the city. 5 mins walk from the shopping centre, 10 from the Catherdrel. No specifc parking for the hotel, although there was a car park next to the hotel, which the hotel gives you a 10% discount for.
Clean, friendly helpful staff, nice bathroom and bed. No Iron.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was good value for money.
Close to City Not much to do in Coventry
Staff were excellent as was the room itself - Martin was exceptionable - very helpful
Modern, clean, comfortable and efficient staff. Car parking at nearby multi storey car park costing £5-40.
Excellent total experience all round No bad points at all
It's quite, cozy, clean and has all the basics that a traveller needs All was great
The swimming pool was very good and the man opened it up especially for me as they had listed the opening times wrong. The restaurant had very little menu choice. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. The staff failed to make my wake up call making me late for attendance on our stand at a show at the nec. Not very happy. Was booked for two nights, only stayed the one!
Good environment and nice golf pitch. I found a spider on my bed.
We found the hotel to be clean and comfortable, it suited all of our needs, and the food was really good, if a little too 'arty' for our tastes.
Good hotel and good clean room and breakfast nice. I was asked for extra £20 pounds when arriving but it said on website all fees and service charges were included in the room charge but I got it sorted out by a member of my party.
the swimming pool and facilities
The Leisure facilities and sauna were superb, very clean, with the staff being most helpful. The pool was really good. The reception staff were also very helpful in sorting out a colleague at their sister hotel nearby
The facilities were ok for the price...ie.Bar / Breakfast. and the hotel is fairly close to the NEC. The hotel staff in the Bar /Front Desk/Restaurant seemed bored and demotivated. There didn't seem to be many people staying at the hotel, so it seemed the were doing 'the minimum'
Altho very near centre of Coventry, one would have thought you were in the country. Very friendly staff, fantastic Leisure centre and pool, choice of a restaurant or Cellar bar for food & drinks, very reasonably priced.
Due to our experience there was nothing to like apart from the view from the room. Bedspread in room 219 had holes. Went to Cellar Bar late pm prior to dinner - bar was full of 'gents' and very rowdy - eventually gave up and went upstairs with our drinks. Went to dinner to discover that myself and friend were the only females in the restaurant. Although only 7.45pm restaurant very loud as golf parties and stag do's in already - as obviously been drinking 'all afternoon' there behaviour was not suitable to being in a restaurant. Menu disappointing as it had half of the choices on it that the web site gave. Food poor quality - only canteen standard as obviously used to being 'churned' out in high volume for golfers and stags. Trouble in Cellar Bar late at night - drunk tried to intice husband into a fight.
Great hotel and leisure club just wished i'd stayed longer to use them ! comfortable clean beds and towels breakfast was great and lots of it, would certainly stay again.had an event at the Motorcycle Museum which was really close. None
good staff, good food, would highly recommend this hotel no
The hotel was light and modern. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable. The breakfast choice was very good Staff polite and eficient.
Not a lot Reception staff, Food.
Good restaurant / bar for cost of room. Overall very nice hotel for money
The Attitude of the staff was excellent, I was going to write a letter to you to say this. we were very pleasantly surprised with the Hotel and will definately use Holiday Inn again for any future trips
The staff were really nice and helpful Nothing
location was good, staff were very helpful and friendly.
A lovely hotel with a relaxed atmosphere. Having to leave. The bar & food prices we felt were a little expensive for our household income of £19k.
Booking.Com had not forwarded the correct reservation details to the Holiday Inn Coventry.A morning paper was ordered but not left outside room and only received on checking out at midday.
Easy to find, conveniently located close to motorway
Reception and dining room staff were friendly and helpful. This is 2nd time I have stayed as it's convenient for the NEC. It's quiet, easy access to M42, Birmingham airport. I shall stay again.
Convenience of position Bed not comfortable
Excellent food, helpful staff Rooms were tired, poorly maintained, and in need of a refurb.
quality of food in the restuarant
Superb room and facilities, would recommend the restaurant.
The location was perfect for the NEC The temperature of the hotel, the room was very hot even when we turned the radiator off in the bedroom, we could not regulate the bathroom radiator. It was a bit uncomfortable
Nice breakfast and the hotel was clean The bed matress needed to be changed as we both kept rolling to the center of it over night. The bathroom was very clean but I found the tops of the bedroom furniture were dusty.
Very friendly welcome - in fact all staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable and the food was excellent. A very minor quibble is that the bar didn't open until 6.30. The TV was very small but otherwise, no negatives.
Meal was very good Thin walled rooms, noisy when there are a lot of people staying
The friendliness of the staff
Very pleasant staff, nothing was too much trouble. Attached pub provides excellent food. Allowed us to remain in the car park after checking out while we visited local area. Our room was nicely furnished with a double and a single bed. (Family room but used for two people, at no extra cost) Nothing really bad to mention, although the handbasin plug was missing, but this was easily resolved. No hair dryer in the room, but one is avalable to use. We took our own.
A really pleasant getaway at an affordable price. The rooms are very comfortable and have everything you need. The bar and restarurant are great value with plenty of choice and again is very comfortable.
Tissue paper insufficient. Towels not enough for two people, there was only one set
The pub/restaurant was very good. Good food and cheap too however it was very busy and there was a 45 minute wait for a table in the dining room although you could eat in the bar area. In spite of me reserving specifically a twin room, when we arrived it had been given to someone else and there was only a double room available. Apologies were given but what is the point of a reservation if any requests are ignored by the hotel.
Good value for the money, staff friendly and helpful. Room clean Shower very slow running water.
Good parking Musty smell in room Bed too soft and too smallLack of desk area,Missing WI FI instructions, No hair dryer. Very cold cooked breakfast
Room was good, pub next door convenient and good value Room I was in (32?) seemed to be next to heating system, was noisy all night.Would still recommend but be choosy about room. Had problems at checkout as company was paying b&B and i was paying extras. Staff didn't know how to process as not used to checking out in this way.
Pleasant firendly and efficient staff - Rooms well laid out with plenty of storage - Heating was on and easy to adjust. Musty smell in corridor and bad smell from the drains in the room on arrival. Disappointed with the Pub as they had run out of 4 items, including what I would refer to as core items (vanilla ice cream & coleslaw) and breakfast could have been hotter.
Clean, tidy, spacious well appointed room, quiet, good breakfast, good pareking, convenient location. Showing limited wear aand tear but not detrimental to the overall experience.
the location for me was most important for easy to get there and were i was going to
Spacious room. Good location. The general sense of the hotel was 'down at heel'. I sensed it has changed hands and did not feel as well maintained as previous stays. One serious defect was that the cold tap on the bath would not work - I reported this.
Very little Dinning facilities
Nice, well-stocked little bar. And the cost - very reasonable The room itself and bathroom were very dirty. My toilet had no toilet roll.
Location Very out dated, and looked unclean, stained and frayed carpets throughout, first room tv not working, trouser press wires hanging out and not working, bathroom dirty and bath enamel comming off, room decor dirty, view out of window filthy flat roof that needed maintenance, dining room frayed carpet and broken dividing cables on mezzanine, Waiter, although pleasent chap absolute hyper ! run run run run everywhere as in a panic.
conveniant to City Room not cleaned and bed not made up. TV. not working and hotel failed to mend faults. Not dissabled friendly no lifts no ground floor rooms
Nothing, except from the location. It was the most terrible hotel I have ever being. It needs renovation from scratch. (note: I have visited many many other hotels).
No restaurant as advertised.
Quiet and peaceful surrouding It took more than 1/2 day to find an iron and an ironing board when requested for. Also, there was no pressing and laundry facility available at the hotel.
staff really not interested in their job, no greeting, no smiling. Downstairs of hotel very shabby. Asked for bar snack menu, told that someone had it. It was a typed list in a plastic sleeve, my grandkids could have produce something more professional and she is only 7!!. Room was ok. glad I was not paying full rate.
If I had read any of the reviews prior to booking this hotel, I would have avoided staying there even if I had been charged nothing.As it was, even the £30. that I paid was an extortionate rate to pay for staying just one night in the place.It is dirty beyond belief, and the "decor"/ facilities belong in a "Grade 1 Listed" museum of typical 50s/60s design - (when thoroughly "deep cleaned"), - not in what anyone should expect of a purportedly "AA 3 STAR" accommodation, No Matter What Price is asked!! See Previous Paragraph.
Easy to find This was the worst customer service I have received in a long time. From the beginning, the staff were unhelpful, unfriendly and rude. We were asked to check out of our room 20 minutes before the check out time. When we enquired about what we thought was a broken heater (it was minus 2 in Coventry that night), the lady who runs the b&b got annoyed. We were refused breakfast at the time we asked for it, but then ended up having to wait for it until that time anyway. We were not shown to our room, nor did anyone say goodbye when we left. At all times throughout our stay, we felt like we were imposing rather than receiving a service.
The room was comfortable. I was pleased to have a smoking room (few & far between these days!). The hotel was quiet, pleasant and well run, the staff were most polite and helpful. Plenty of parking spaces. Prices for rooms reasonable.Cafe service quick & food quite good. Would have liked cooked breakfast, though the continental one was adequate with plenty of choice. The door `key` did not always work first time. There was a bit of a `drain` smell in the bathroom. The Cafe menu was a bit limited. Drinks a bit expensive.
Room too small some of equipent did not work properly
It was general to the centre centre and public transport menu . . Was alright for people looking for snacks only
The location in relation to the university and the shops was perfect - only a short walk away. The onsite food was surprisingly good for a budget hotel.
Friendly staff, clean room with mobility bathroom,nice bar area. Reception did not stand out upon arrival in the car park.Bed was very uncomfitable with a chip board base and a firm foam mattress. The room had a list of items the hotel could provide on request, one of them was for a 'vibrating pillow', I asked about them but the staff and manager did not seem to know what I was asking for ?
Very pleasant staff. Clean, tidy. Some small maintenance issues. Telephone connection intermittant. Overflow pipe on sink not connected.
pleasant, helpful staff food could be improved and eating area made more comfortable
Budget hotel, that close to the city center.
Location is very good very close to station and shops. The hotel has good parking area. The staff were ver helpful.
Clean and tidy. Nothing fancy but you have everything you need for a comfortable stay None
