The only reason why I didn't bump the rating to excellent (So let's say this is 4.5/5) is because I had to deal with some pretty rude neighbours from time to time. Anyhow... As someone who had just packed up her entire life to move out to England, 1st Bed was a home away from home whilst I was looking...

As international coachdriver you cannot decide where to stay, the company chooses the place to sleep. Unfortunately they choose this "guesthouse" for 4 nights for my 4 day London tour. This "guesthouse" is now in my top 5 of worst places to stay when at work. Small rooms, uncomfortable beds and cold rooms, especially in november. Wifi was not working...

Dear Remy, It is regretted that your experience at our guesthouse had been below expectation!

Though we do tend to accommodate several working guests, we do house travelling guests from far and wide. As GM of 1St Bed, as much...

Coventry, United Kingdom
Reviewed 21 October 2015

Just about OK. Clean and tidy. More of a worker's boarding house than a bed and breakfast. OK for somewhere to sleep after a days work, but £90.00 for a twin bedded room, self service continental breakfast with disposable plates and cutlery and very basic cramped room is not good value.

Dear Tony, Your patronage of 1St Bed is indeed appreciated and is regretted however that the accommodation did not meet your satisfaction. That said we will endeavour to continue on the road to improving our offering as a Guesthouse where possible as we look to a sustainable future! Regards Sharon

Dear Big Tom, 1St Bed Guesthouse has various category rooms including those to suit the guests with an extremely tight budget. This category room offers heating as standard, however due to space constraints cannot accommodate a large bed. The en-suite rooms and most of the other rooms offers a good night sleep without any bells and whistles. The parking is...
