                    • Near to the center, hotel Was Fine and the Price was also attractive. Buffet style breakfast was very nice, staff were helpful and efficient, the room was clean and comfortable. Food was good, fruit was lovely and dinner was delicious.

                      Bad location and not the best value for your money. The building is tired and dated, the lobby is filthy. No hot water @ 7 am wait till 8 and bar close too early.

                    • Near to motoe museum and location good. Budget friendly, comfy, quiet and the sooner this building is knocked the better. The staff are great, the rooms are big.

                      Furniture and decor was dated, the service was really bad, the receptionist were really rude. Internet access was not available and  the lamp shade on the desk was broken. The evening meal was awful.

                    • Convenient location, the dutu manager sorted that out rapidly and that was the only bright spot of a horrible stay, price was good. Staff were very helpful, bathroom/toilet were clean.

                      The hotel was untidy, the room was not nice at all and breakfast was too expensive as my wife only had one piece of bacon and an egg cost £10.50. The menu choice was poor as was the service.

                    • The location is pretty good right in the centre of the city, this Hotel has extremely efficient, pleasant and friendly staff, the information in the room needs to look better.

                      Scary place, big cobwebs outside and dirty and ill fitting curtains. Breakfast options very poor.

                    • Central location and good value for the money I got a deal for. The rooms are spacious.

                      Hotel staff on check in extremely rude and unhelpful.

                      The hotel is looking very tired and dated, the rooms are not comfortable and the restaurant.

                      Worst hotel in Coventry, room was noisy as is near the bus station.

                    • The view was good too, the place was pretty clean and tidy, the staff were friendly and helpfull. The bed was comfy.

                      The hotel was filthy, coffee and hot water were all too cool, the service in the bar was excellent. Breakfast was the worst ever.

                    • Clean and good location, pleasant Stay. Low price, helpful staff and virtually nothing the bed was comfortable. The orange juice was fine.

                      Hotel room tired and dated, poor decoration. Near the main road, the reception is inefficient.

                    • Location and friendly staff, nice Hotel, excellent price. Free wifi at reception and brilliant Manager. My room was clean, breakfast was good plentiful and helpful Chef made me a poached egg.

                      The towels would have been burnt by most places, the receptionist was unhelpful and the carpark is very unsecure.

                      Tired, dated hotel in desperate need of refurbishment.

                      The hotel looked dirty from the outside we pulled up and reception staff lazy. T available from our room and breakfast awful.

                    • Location is good and a car park is only 5 mins walk away, really handy for the Uni and the Cathederal the hotel is literally behind the Cathederal. Shower to start the day fresh.

                      Staff were ok didnt make much of a effort, rooms were bit dated.

                    • View was crap to be honest, friendly and all the other staff we encounterd was polite and friendly, the room was very clean and welcoming and appeared to be newly decorated. The evening meals always had a good selection of meats and deserts.

                      This hotel was not cheap and does not deserve any star rating, the bathroom floor was very old.
