Pleasant Stay

I was nicely surprised with the reception area upon entering the hotel, as from outside it looked very old & dirty and knew it would be a hotel which needs refurbishing quite a bit! Staff were very welcoming. Hotel is old and needs a lot of work however looking past that, my room was clean & tidy, and had no problem with the comfort of my stay. There was a false fire alarm set off at 6am though - apparently steam from a shower set off the alarms?! Should sort that out though as way too sensitive to be set off like that! It was the cheapest hotel I could find close to the town centre but you do pay for what you get! All it needs is some new paint, new carpets, and just a new ensuite would be nice. Very outdated. Overall stay was fine though.

not great but position good.

Is in a good position, next to the cathedral, but: -Room was really shabby, wallpaper peeling from walls, shower dripping all night -Asked for an iron in room. Told there was an ironing room. Found it and the tiny room had two burnt irons that barely worked. -left a shirt in the room after check out. Went back for it at end of the day. Couldn't be found. -bought breakfast the first morning. Truly inedible -noisy and no air conditioning.

Internet deal - there was no wifi access

Booked the internet deal to ensure I had wifi access to enable me to work in the hotel in the am and nights. It wasn't working staff were less than helpful, requested to speak to the manager s/he was unavailable. Ended up only being in the room from 10pm to 7am as I had to find an alternative venue to work. Staff were very flippant about it not working - "it' never available in rooms and only occasionally in the lobby - its down at the moment and we don't know when it will be working again" I wouldn't have booked.

Run down

The hotel appeared to be deliberately being run down. It is desperately in need of repair/facelift. Great location as it's right in the city center. The Wi-Fi is only available in the reception area and not in the rooms. Decor is outdated/drab. The hotel has a bar but is used by the local wine-Oh's. Also the hotel gives special rates to contractors who traips muddy boots everywhere. You will also find animals in the hotel as they allow pets. This is not a quality hotel and it's clearly evident. It's an embarrasement to Coventry.

Smarten up your act

Following the closure of Travelodge in Broadgate, Britannia is now the only hotel now in the city centre of Coventry: it knows this, and for this reason it offers a lacklustre, mediocre service. Getting wifi in the hotel room (and other parts of the hotel during my stay) was impossible which was a major inconvenience to me. The cold tap in my room worked with a thumping sound. I couldn't use the telephone in the room except to ring reception. The interior badly needs a new paint job (eg old stains on the wall) and a facelift. On the upside, the bed was comfortable and the room was spacious. It is a decent sized building in a prime location in a historic town. Time to invest money and smarten up its act.

Was just fine

I have been in this hotel before several times, but as comparing to my previous trips: this one was not as comfortable as i was expecting. > I requested extra bathroom accessories: i didnt get any. all i had was just for one person and for 2 days. > Normally i used to have an iron or trouser press: but there wasnt any trouser press or iron. and it was a coincident these 2 days of my trips were quite in rain. > previously when i was in a twin bed room i had 2 washroom or bathrooms, one with a shower and wc and one with wc and tub but this time i had just one bathroom.. (well that wasnt necessary but it made a difference because i paid this time more that i paid before) > i requested a toothbrush (disposable) which i used to have in some stays but they simply refused that they dont do any. > it was quite cold because of rain, and i didnt have the heating for the first day and night. One more thing i want to mention is: most of the times i leave the room a day before my checkout because i do visit with my family and it happened 3-4 times that i do checkout out 19-20 hours before my time. But if i reach 15-20 minute before check-in time i always need to pay 10-15£ for an early check-in. in this one year time i never got any discount coupon or any discounted special offer. hotel should provide a late or early check-in service. because of this confusion i had to book for 2 nights where i actually needed for one night. thanks

Wunderbar!

I stayed here for a night, and had booked the room through a last minute website. The room was fantastically clean, and furnished to a good standard. A little old school for my liking, but cannot fault it. Really enjoyed my stay in this hotel, and its location is perfect! Definitely recommend.

No parking

Although the advert said there is parking, it is in a public car park. The room was a pleasant surprise and the hotel is very central.
