Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Angus22 Good stay but noisy
We stayed at this hotel on a Friday night. A prom party was being held in the main area and we were in a fair off wing. The party goers spilled out of the main venue and started running around in the grounds and hanging around the children's play area. This caused a significant amount of noise all evening and through to the early hours. No-one from the hotel tried to keep them in and around the party room and so the party went on in the main hotel, grounds and car park.
Very noisy and ruined a relaxing evening and night's sleep.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sw1969 Dated and missing attn to detail
Nothing really bad, but niggling things like...
Waiting to be seated at restaurant welcome stand, while several staff walk by.
Wanted glass of water with meal but waitress didn't do the usual check "is everything ok with your meal" opportunity.
Carvery meal service poor. I asked what something was and they told me. I said I'd like some and they said I was to serve myself, which would have been fine if the food was within reach and if there were utensils available. After a sideways glance from me the penny dropped and they pushed it nearer and provided a serving spoon.
Struggled to find room due to poor signage from reception.
Whole place very dated, including the room.
Television quite baffling.
No feedback forms in room.
On the other hand, the staff were actually very nice and the shower, whilst dated, was very good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Engelsman Enjoyable stay for Business
I have used this Hotel for business before, it needs to be pretty good with two competitors within a stones throw...
Atmosphere and service in the Bar is excellent, unless it gets very busy!
Having a Gym on site is a definite plus.
The special Bar area for Priority Club members is only worthwhile if you want to feel totally isolated, in numerous visits I have yet to see any of the promised nibbles, and it is totally neglected by the helpful Bar staff (so stay in the normal Bar area!).
Enjoy breakfast, again service is friendly, but make sure you buy the vouchers in advance.
I'm certainly comfortable staying here, but very little (=no) reward for being a Gold Elite Priority Club member...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tiimd Nice hotel, great staff
Nice and clean, very helpful staff which helps make a good hotel. Vary easy to find just off the motorway. Nice that they have more than the normal five TV channels that a lot of hotels have, which is now less than most homes.
If there has to be a negative point, it's that the WiFi is not free, even for an hour, or in the bar area, like a lot of hotels are now doing.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Earl38 Bring your own iron!
The hotel were unable to provide an iron and ironing board until I escalated the issue to management and even then they initially said they couldn't.
No upgrade provided even though the hotel were still selling executive rooms.
This used to be one of the best Holiday Inn establishments in my opinion but has gone massively down hill recently. Seriously lacking in customer care.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bigfella Poor Breakfast
I was staying because of a meeting. The staff attending to us were very good, the conference room was a good size and the lunch buffet was 5*. The room I was staying in was clean but a little small, but ok. The leisure facilities were good as we're the staff in there. The breakfast was a let down. Dried out greasy bacon and tasteless scrambled egg, not much else took my fancy. The pancake maker was broken and not enough time to have fresh food cooked. The staff again were very good and tried to make amends, stopping short of shooting the chef but giving me a refund for the breakfast. I will be back, because of all the staff and their professionalism. Well done to them.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sachivm Very poor room service
Room service takes more than 45 minutes on some occasions - and staff does not make any effort to inform customers of the same whilst an order is placed. Moreover, in one instance, staff was pretty rude to mention that order will take another 15-20 minutes despite already having waited for 45 minutes.
There have numerous instances of no one answering the room service phone number. Just very frustrating. It seems that the hotel staff know that there isnt any other decent eating option close to the hotel, so they can get away with the poor quality of service.
Food quality is at best, mediocre and is not consistent. Wrong orders have also been delivered (e.g. sparkling water instead of still water). Surely, after waiting for 45 minutes, the last thing I want is to wait for some more time before the correct order can be delivered!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ubique740 Veterans Reunion
Have stopped at this hotel a number of times over the last 8 years. It's location near to the M6 J2 and the grounds of the hotel are both ideal for our commitments in the area. My Army Reunion have been using this hotel for the last 6 years and would have moved on to another hotel if the 100 plus attendees were not satisfied with the venue.
It's the staff that sets this hotel above the rest. They try to ensure that the guest comes first.every time. The Check In was smooth, again we felt that the male Receptionist had done his homework on who we were etc. Our room ,the same one we always request had been prepared to its usual high standard. Our only gripe is that it's hard to control the temperature of the room even though there is a "control panel" for the air conditioning. We always enjoy the self service breakfasts which now includes make your own pancakes, delicious .
Think the hotel are being dragged into the 21st century by supplying free WiFi in next 12 months - not before time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Slippy Easy to mix busines and comfort
Thoroughly enjoyed my 4 night stay even though I was on a training course – good leisure facilities to relax after class – good food and choices of specials every night – very friendly restaurant staff at dinner and breakfast – only down side was not being able to reduce room temp as hotel itself was very warm due to cold weather outside – and free room WiFi in the 21st Century wouldn’t be a bad idea either

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Les1960 Mmmmm
One of the larger more corporate Holiday Inn's.
Still comfortable, clean and a decent place to stay but a little unfriendly due to the size of the place.
It was also some distance form any independent restaurants in town although there are high street chains nearby. But it is very handy for the motorway network
Breakfast was very good, but I had to pay for wifi even as a platinum member but this is changing at a corporate level in July - about time too.
Nice place but I prefer the Holiday Inn Coventry south which is smaller and more friendly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Suffolkgirl Don't get room service!
I stayed here last week and having arrived hungry, I ordered room service as soon as I'd checked in. Soup, Turkey and Cranberry sandwich, salad and cheese board plus diet coke. I asked for the salad to have no peppers in, I asked for the drink to have no ice and I was asked for my 3 choices of cheese.
When it arrived I immediately saw a lump of stilton which wasn't one of my choices, to be fair, the young man who brought it soon came back with the correct one. However, on uncovering the rest, the salad was literally full of peppers (which I cannot eat!#, the coke was full of ice, the turkey was not carved turkey like I assumed, but actually a piece of turkey roll #like a piece of ham!# and the sandwiches themselves were tiny! I cannot tell you how disappointing the entire meal was! I was too tired and hungry to send it all back and wait for replacements, so I made do, but it was over £20 for such a disappointment! I would have liked to think that they may have offered some form of compensation or refund the meal, but they didn't #I mentioned it when checking out).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HC4CC Very disappointing
We booked 2 nights in Holiday Inn Coventry M6 because we were attending a concert at Ricoh Arena; we intended to have dinner in the restaurant when we arrived on Friday, then to do some Christmas shopping in Birmingham before using the pool and going to the gig on Saturday.
However, on arrival there were drunk guests strewn everywhere and the restaurant was closed - I understand that at this time of year all venues have Christmas functions but we weren't told until we arrived that we would have to eat in our room.
We also weren't told until check-in that the pool was closed for maintenance - allegedly we should have received a phone call advising us of this.
I set up a tab on my card at check-in for drinks and food but when I tried to use it at the bar, they refused and would only take cash. When I cancelled the tab at reception, the staff were completely disinterested. While I was dealing with this, my partner went outside for a cigarette and had to avoid pools of vomit from the aforementioned drunks.
The only positives were that the bed was comfortable and the room was clean; even trying to watch a film (and paying £7 for it!) was disappointing as it kept freezing.
I told the receptionist all of this on check-out and she took the tray charge for dinner and the film rental off our bill but didn't apologise for anything and seemed totally apathetic - it was like talking to a robot.
The only staff members that seemed to notice/care that there were guests around were the housekeepers, who without fail were friendly when we saw them in the corridor.
This has shaken my faith in Holiday Inn - I'm unlikely to be a member of Priority Club for much longer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by P22926 Very good on balance
My girlfriend and I stayed for 2 nights in an executive room. Everything about the hotel was excellent, but there were a few let-downs. Some were only trivial (didn't receive the promised bathrobes), but some were genuinely irritating (very uncomfortable pillows).
Overall, I'd absolutely stay there again, but I'd take my own pillows.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 0302 Meeting rooms are excellent!
The Meeting and conference facility here are excellent, most are large with good natural light.
The staff in the conference facility are excellent and cannot do enough for you. We use the meeting rooms on a regular basis and the staff are friendly, approachable and happy to help.
The water and sweets are replaced regularly through the day and the coffee station outside the rooms works well.
When we stay overnight the rooms are always clean and comfortable and the use of the gym is a nice bonus.
The food and service for the conference facility is always good but I must say the service in the main restaurant can be slow in the evening. Breakfast here is always somthing to look forward to and again the service is great at breakfast with prompt refills.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Eddi Needs new mattresses
We booked a night here as a treat for the kids using priority points. It's location was great for where we wanted to go and they loved the pool and sauna etc but the room comfort left a lot to be desired. The mattresses are old you can feel the springs even my 6 year old complained and the pillows were awful they had labels defining comfort but they should all have said uncomfortable! Also even though there were four of us in the room they only provide cups for 2people I guess we are meant to share

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by elephants Hold your nose!
Our bathroom stank of urine on arrival, we spoke to the staff and they moved us to another room, this also smelt of urine although wasn't quite as horrendous as the first room. The peripheries of our room were dirty, so were the lockers in the health and fitness suite. The bread delivered with our food order was stale. Overall we were very dissapointed..................the hotel has good facilities but the cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired, this spoilt what should have been a special occasion for us. We would not stay at Holiday Inn again anywhere after this experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rnt0779 Hotel okay but bathroom needed updating
Nice hotel marred by cramped bathroom that needed some attention to detail - the loo roll holder was hanging off, the heated towel rail was disconnected and the room was generally a bit tired.
The room itself was clean and the bed comfortable although the continental quilt was thinner than the flannelette sheets we have at home.
Breakfast was fine and the staff were very nice and helpful.
But why no free internet access anywhere?

Overall our stay with friends for a Christmas weekend break was very good and met our needs and expectations.
Our dissapointment was that we could not eat at the hotel on the Friday evening due to parties and that the swimming pool was closed.
That apart we would certainly come again and would ask that Dawn and Blake in the dining room be congratulaed on the excellent service they gave us, they were out standing.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Johnh5615 Food - poor
I stay here regularly due to work and convenience but I find the food expensive for what you get and the steak is AWFUL. It was chewy, and 80% fat. I was asked if the food was ok, I explained that no it was not and that the steak was awful. All i got in return was 'ah ok', and they then walked away. Why ask if they do not know what to do with the imformation.
I also do like having Service Charge as part of my bill. I like to decide how much to leave.
I will continue to stay here out of convenience but will not recommend it to anyone else.
The internet charge is abasolutely extortionate too!
