Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Felix9 Cubbyhole for room
This should be an Express; room was cell-like
We normally stay - for same price - at nearby Inn in Stratford.
Only plus is location, between old and new towns.
Only attempt at upgrade, for Platinum IHG Priority Club member, was 2 bottles of water and a choc bar.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kiltmaker Average chain type hotel
Interesting setting in Kenilworth. I had had a long journey and was not able to fully relax in the rather small room. Kettle didn't work which didn't help. I would stay again under different circumstances.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gav73 Great business hotel
I have stayed here a number of times on business.
Great modern rooms with excellent free wifi and a nice desk to work with plenty of sockets.
Breakfast is quite expensive but they will do porridge on request.
The 'mini gym' is hard to find, is not always open and is very much on the 'mini' side.
Staff are polite and helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ltdt WiFi coverage can be better
This is one of the few Holiday Inn hotels I stay that is situated in town. There are plenty of nice restaurants near by.
The hotel restaurant is perfectly adequate and the burger is actually quite nice.
Internet speed is very good (when I get a reliable signal). The only complain I have is that WiFi signal gets very weak by the desk in the room I stayed in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Everton Fan Great room at a reasonable rate.
Stayed at this hotel several times and always had a very enjoyable experience. The location is excellent - a short walk from some really nice bars, pubs and restaurants. It's also not very far to drive to Stratford-upon-Avon or the Cotswolds.
My only gripe is the variability of the room rates. Sometimes you can find excellent deals through the website and other times the prices seem a little prohibitive for a weekend stay. It's all very hit and miss when you log on to the website.
Having said that, the room was excellent, the staff were efficient and courteous and there is a Starbucks downstairs which is great for breakfast.
I would also recommend the bar opposite the hotel (Almanacks). Really friendly atmosphere and excellent food, especially the Sunday roasts.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lupin Excellent location
Very good hotel in a lovely situation. We had a very good nights sleep and were very comfortable. We were attending a family party in Kenilworth. The only problem was that despite booking four rooms four months in advance the hotel staff did not have our request to be situated next to each other. I had confirmed the booking the day before arrival with the hotel directly and even so the staff on duty were not aware of our request. However, they remedied this on arrival and were very helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JeniSue Small rooms
I think we had possibly he smallest double room I have ever stayed in. It was comfy enough but very small for two people. We were going to a wedding so we did really need more space to get ready . We did nt try the breakfast as it was so expensive. We used the pub/restaurat over the road which did a lovely breakfast for a fraction of the price. The attached Starbucks was nice although the opening times didnt make it that user friendly. I would stay again if in the area but I wouldnt recoment for a special or memerable occasion.
