Initial impressions weren't great to be honest. What must have once been bleeding edge fashion and taste at one point now looks, well, dated. The lobby, at first glance looked ok, as I didn't spend much time there. The corridor that led to my room felt well worn and some of the doors actually looked damaged. I entered my room...

This hotel was the pride of the city when it was built, not any more. I stayed for 5 nights and couldn't wait to leave and would have, had circumstances been different. The rooms are very dated and the furniture has definitely seen better days. Drawer handle broken off, just replace it with something not even close to the original....

I once stayed in a two-star hotel in Latvia and it made me wish for home. At least the staff there were friendly and there was wifi in the room, unlike at the Britannia Hotel. The sitting area by the lounge was dirty when I arrived, with an empty bottle and a couple of crisp packets on the floor. The...

Went on a four day break with Caledonian Coach Travel . Stayed at Britania Hotel Coventry, I was pleasantly surprised as the reviews were terrible. The room,beds,and bathroom were clean.The quality of the towels were good. The only downside was that the windows were filthy on the outside could hardly see through them. The breakfast was just right with selection...

This was a last minute booking for business and a lot of hotels were fully booked for my dates. Paid £83 for a room that could only be described as very poor. The list includes threadbare dirty carpets, old damaged furniture, interconnecting door with no lock (coffee table used to obstruct door! And tissue stuffed in hole where lock should...

Dated is an understatement, worst hotel I've stopped in , did remind me of a trip to Moldova. No sleep due to noise , heating and been bitten , first thing I did was check the bed , it seemed ok but after several bites it's certainly isn't, The only thing I can suggest to improve is to knock the...

Stayed here last minute for work. Central hotel with NO parking provided despite what the website says. A little dated but friendly staff and clean rooms. Lot of workmen staying the night I stayed and some issues between them caused by alcohol.

We went on National Holidays super saver for Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon. If I had believed all the doom and gloom reports I might not have gone. We were told the hotel was ( a dump) so was not expecting much. After a mess up with the coach journey we arrived at Coventry. Firstly you have to take your cases to...
