“Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

National Holiday 4 day trip.
We did not know where we were staying until we arrived at Royal Court so were unable to read reviews pre visit.
A very pleasant looking Hotel and lovely quiet gardens and grounds.
We usually upgrade but were unable to do so when booking ...no need....Room was very clean and we had a Jacuzzi bath...a good surprise..Only complaint was mattress was uncomfortable we could feel springs...which affected our sleep quality.

Lounges and public areas were spacious and comfortable with views of garden. If we had known of Swimming pool etc pre trip we would have used them...but finding time may have been difficult!!!

Dining rooms were pleasant.....Dinner consisted of starters(choice of 2) served at tables..then main course (Carvery and usually 2 other choices) and desserts (3-4 choices) buffet style.
Food was good and plentiful although there did not seem to be anyone in charge...and no-one explained re buffet etc..
Our party dining time was 6.00pm, unfortunately we did not arrive back at the Hotel until 5.00pm most days so felt a bit rushed.

Breakfast was Buffet style....cereals, porridge etc and full English,, toast.. again good and plentiful.
Tea and Coffee were in Flasks in the Dining Room... Unfortunately this was not good....Tea was warm and stewed as was Coffee...not a pleasant way to start the day !!!

Staff on an Evening seemed unorganised although this was not the case at Breakfast.

Overall we enjoyed our stay at The Royal Court and would stay there again.

We scored a 3 but feel with a few adjustments a 4 would be more approriate.

Unlike some reviews we enjoyed our stay here. Staff were helpful and well presented. The food was okay and service very good. For what we needed the hotel was in a good location and provided us with everything we needed.

Dont be fooled by the lovely pictures on the website (like I was). They were obviously taken some time ago.....If you are looking for somewhere that resembles a poor version of Butlins then this is the place for you. The place has huge potential, and in it's day I'm sure it was a marvelous venue, but it's very tired, run down and the staff very unprofessional and demotivated. An example being as soon as I checked in I asked if I needed to book for Dinner, "yes, phone the number shown" was the response, which was handily placed on the front desk, but not in the room, neither was there a menu in the room or anything about the restaurant. So I went back to reception and had to phone the number myself, which wasnt a huge problem, except no-one answered. "you'll have to go down to the restaurant and book" was the advice from reception. I duly did this and waited 15 minutes with no sign of anyone at the desk, and got blanked by a couple of young members of staff, so had to leave a note to book a table.

Food was a disapointment, dishwater soup or melon for starter, no other options. Then carvery for main course, very 80's. Beef was good, but spoilt by no Yorkshire Puds, which when I asked for them turned up cold and soggy. Veg was also very basic, along with burned or undercooked roast spuds. I was serioulsy on the lookout for Gordon Ramsay to be sitting in the corner doing a piece to camera and filming his next series of kitchen nightmares.

Gym and pool VERY busy, moldy, tired and basic. hot tub looked very nice, but in the hour I was there short of sitting on someone's lap I had to settle for just a look.

Room was spacious, but beds serioulsly not comfy, with springs sticking through mattress. Luckily I was on my own and had 2 single beds, so used the duvet from one bed to deal with the springs!!!

Throughout the rest of the complex the corridors had a few ceiling tiles left, but most were water stained or not even there, wall paper peeling, carpet damaged and threadbare etc etc

The place seemed very popular with the over 65's though, and 3 coaches of Saga louts from Essex turned up, with the evenings entertainment consisting of bingo (loudly) and a dodgy cabaret act

Booked last minute but was very pleasantly surprised. Although I had booked a single room, I got a double with a Jacuzzi bath - lovely after a long day's travelling. Room was large and comfortable. Didn't use any other facilities, but the bed was comfortable and I had a good night's sleep. Would definitely return.

We wanted a nice, cheap weekend away and that's exactly what we got when we booked a special deal through travelzoo to stay in this hotel for 2 nights. The receptionist was very friendly and quickly gave us the key to our room, once we got to the room we discovered that it was a little dated however the room was of a good size and clean. We were also pleasently surprised that it included a large jacuzzi tub in bathroom!

We used the spa on both days and found that it was not very busy which is always a bonus. The spa has a large swimming pool, hot tub and steam/sauna room which was included in the price we paid for the package.

The restaurant was good, however it was quite busy at times and we found that it was best to book a table in advance so that you don't have to wait in line later on. Once you have settled into the dining room the waiters serve the starters at your table and afterwards you can try a variety of different dishes from the buffet cart.

I think that a bingo/quiz is held each night at the bar however we did not participate.

The hotel is situated just outside of Coventry's city center and it was a great base to travel to Birmingham and Warwick which are a short drive away (30mins).
