Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ozzygal A little disappointed
Having stayed at this hotel on previous occasions, I found that the hotel had deteriorated in certain areas. There were two lifts, but only one was working randomly, the 'free' wifi was temperamental and the hot water for a shower took a while to get going, there was also a leak reported from our bathroom which was dealt with. The phone in our room had a light constantly on and for the last day was not working at all.
I still do not understand why the price varies so much during the week, I paid more for a week day, than I have for a five star hotel with far greater facilities.
On a positive note, the staff were very accommodating and compared to other accommodation in Kenilworth the holiday inn is probably a better option.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Offthe touristtrack Let down by a few things!
Whilst the room was generally clean and comfortable it was let down by the air conditioning not working, and no face cloths despite requests. The bed was comfortable but we didn't have a great night with the window open on a hot night. A shame, because it could have been perfect with a little effort.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jimi66 Accessible room double-booked
Disabled guest. Booked over a month before stay. Found room double-booked and had to be accommodated on fourth instead of ground floor.. Dirty brown water from hot taps, had to use cold water. Pillows all hard, soft ones mis-labelled. On departure, with appointment to meet, found lifts had broken down, so stranded on fourth floor with mobility scooter for a while. Staff did all they could to help.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by phishphood Breakfast
We were a little disappointed with breakfast particularly the price of £13.95, for what I would term a standard English breakfast.
I travel a lot with work and do not pay £13.95 for breakfast in London hotels so was a little surprised. That said we did order breakfast, but would say it was not really worth almost £14.00 each. Replenishment of items was slow and we, and many other people, waiting for fresh items on a number of occasions. Also, what was meant to be juice was mainly water.
We did comment on breakfast at reception and to their credit we were given one breakfast free.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mama Jo Overnight Stay for University Visit
My daughter and I booked a night whilst visiting Warwick University.
The location was ideal, not far from Warwick and Leamington Spa.
The staff were very courteous, friendly and very helpful.
Our room was perfect for a night's stay and everything was very clean and new. It was a particularly hot day but the air conditioning worked well and we had a very comfortable and cool night.
Although we did not eat dinner in the hotel, we had breakfast the following morning. There was plenty of choice for both continental and full breakfast.
I would certainly stay again and would recommend.

We were using public transportation and this hotel was very convenient--buses right outside the hotel.
Only one small complaint--there was no swimming pool. Not a deal breaker, but would have been appreciated.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by epotron Some improvement requested
Hi, my last stay in Kenilworth was globally average, with several annoying problems, not fixed:
1) one lift was out of order during 3 days. When your room is on 6th floor, you're waiting a lot to get there and to leave.
2) Internet access was not working properly, either in my room or through Wifi in the hotel. Connection was quick, but then there was extremely slow input or output flow, like a kind of traffic jam on Internet connection.
3) Air conditioning was not working very well. When I entered my room, it was up and cooling with noise my room. Next day, it was completely stopped, no way to start it. The reason this air conditioning in my room was active or not was very unclear. The small picture close to the controlling device on the wall was unclear as well and in the end, it does not work, whatever buttons you play with. This feature has to be completely reviewed, simplified and explained in a simple way, without the need to call reception.
Good point: staff is always very kind and ready to help, if they can.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Megabyte excellent stay
The hotel was undergoing repairs to make it even better than previously. The whole of the staff were very friendly and always acknowledged everyone. Those I had met before on previous occasions said hello and welcomed me to the hotel; some by first name. they all went out to help visitors and make their stay a good one. The hotel looks clean and presentable, it is well placed in the centre of town and nr the castle and abbey ruins. The food is very good and morning breakfast is very wholesome.
The manager was very helpful

This hotel provided great services for an extended stay and business travel. The breakfast buffet had a wide assortment of food and beverages. The hotel lobby was clean and a Starbucks coffee shop is adjacent to the lobby-great for a quick coffee or lunch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Kenilworth.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by El Cachafaz Up-to-date clean rooms and good Service
The rooms were of a high standard in that they had almost new furniture, were clean and every thing worked in it. Tea making facilities were easy to use and did NOT use paper cups. The glasses in the bathroom were imitation but excellent. All the lights worked and the WiFi was actually fast.
The whole Hotel looked clean and fresh and the staff were polite, friendly and attentive. I had more luggage than I could manage and the young man on duty, seeing me struggling, helped me to the room. He did not hover around waiting for a tip.
Bar prices a bit heavy and had to ask at reception to get someone to serve me but it was solved in 3 mins.
Certainly will use this Hotel again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by am115998 Friendly, great bed and good quality English breakfast
The Kenilworth Holiday Inn isn't quite as imposing its Internet images make it look. It is a large building but the friendly staff made it feel a lot 'smaller' if you will...
The bed was extremely comfortable - especially compared to other hotels and guest houses we have tried.
The breakfast was a standard English affair - all well cooked, with usual cereals, fruit etc. We felt that the ingredients were a touch above the quality we had received elsewhere and enjoyed it immensely with our two year old.

The hotel was fine but the hassle and confusion of the booking and charges was below expectations. Neither confirmation received by email matched the checkout charge.
So my advice - print your confirmation before arrival

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by vik21 access for wheelchair user
The room was very comfortable and clean, ditto for bathroom. However the mirror in the bathroom far to high on the wall. I was unable to gain accesss to the room or to leave on my own. Doors to heavy. Pull cords for assistance in bathroom and bedroom. I was worried about fire as I was a long way from reception and on 2nd floor. several sets of double doors between my room and the lift. However, my carer's room was free of charge and the staff were helpful on the whole. As a wheelchair user I would be unable to stay in this hotel on own.My vegan diet was catered for without any problems. I thought breakfast was expensive.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay and will use the hotel for my stay in 2015.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TB14 Good quality, clean rooms and comfortable beds
Another excellent stay at the Holiday Inn Kenilworth. The cooked breakfast could have been hotter, the aircon unit was faulty (just switched it off, which was fine), and on this occasion we couldn't get the wifi to work (which is unusual). However, overall good value if you can get the low advance booking rate with breakfast included.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gonedu Nice place, friendly and helpful staff
This hotel is pleasant, the staff is caring for the hosts quality of stay and my only advice would be to improve the breakfast buffet: the orange juice is not satisfactory and the fruits salad was not optimal. I hope next time the breakfast will have improved, the rest is perfect!

The hotel was comfortable and staff were pleasant. Breakfast was limited e.g. no scrambled eggs and luke warm food. However, given the price, i feel this hotel is excellent value for money and would recommend it.

This hotel is very conveniently located, has excellent car park access, has an integrated Starbucks (although another brand would be better for those of us who like to boycott Starbucks for its tax avoidance policies). The room was comfortable, and (mark of a great hotel) the mirror in the bathroom was clear after a shower!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CK52 A breath of fresh air!
We chose Kenilworth as it was centrally located for our 5 day break in the Midlands. Little did we know what an exceptional service we were to get, which made up a great deal for the poor weather we encountered. Nothing was too much trouble and everything we asked for was delivered in minutes. Special mention needs to be made of Matt on the reception desk, his enthusiasm for his job and interest in ensuring our stay was as pleasant as could be was truly commendable and streets ahead of the bland reception at many other Hotels. Only sad to say that we understand Matt is leaving the company in the near future. As far as location is concerned we couldn't have asked for more. Kenilworth has a wealth of excellent restaurants all within a 10 - 15 minute walk of the Hotel

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by r23rob Terrible, noisy and hot
Whilst the hotel looked lovely we had a terrible stay. There were a number of events on which we could clearly hear from our room coupled with lots of clanging plates from what sounded like the kitchen directly below our room.
To top the disturbed sleep off our rooms was roasting despite having turned the heating off we opened the window to be grated by a vent from the kitchens humming all night!!!!
