Holiday Inn Kenilworth - Warwick

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Have just returned home from a short break at the HolidayInn, Kenilworth. Hotel was good, room was adequate and clean. Staff on reception very good. Lounge area not very welcoming, seating not a good layout, too many higher height tables. In the Marco Pierre restaurant we were given a high table, asked if we could sit at a standard table (senior citizens!) but were told none available, in fact there were at least 6 normal height tables that were not used all evening. Had quite a wait for food, garlic bread was not very garlicky, thin and crispy like a biscuit. I ordered the herb crusted salmon fillet which was served on a bean ragout which looked dry and appealing, it was replaced on request with a much better one. Not impressed with standards in restaurant at all!

Have stayed here before and like all Holiday Inns "it is what it says what's on the tin". Clean, tidy, slightly corporate with high in-house advertising for their Marco White franchise restaurant...and their Starbucks franchise too. We had booked two double rooms: a standard double (that was upgraded to Executive) and a Disabled. The disabled was on the second floor and at the very furthest corner of the hotel. Yes, there was a lift to the second floor but then a quite considerable walk to the Disabled Room than involved crossing an internal (unheated) glass sided bridge! Strange. Breakfasts are well-managed here with friendly, hard working staff - but it took 25-minutes to bring us two poached eggs & it would have helped if we'd been kept informed. I know it was Mother's Day weekend but a 25-minute wait means that the kitchen was probably understaffed & overwhelmed. Finally, the hotel's American Express card machine wasn't working & they had to borrow Starbuck's machine. However, all things considered, this Holiday is good value, friendly, efficient and very largely well-run. We would certainly recommend folk join the IHG chain, get a card and gain points (ie discounted rooms). Yes, we'd certainly return.

Great value very clean very helpful staff only bad side is the car park. Fantastic all you can eat breakfast 10-10 stay for the price. Fantastic location end of the high street near some very good food restaurants.

No trains running and couldn't get home .But this is the perfect place to be trapped in ! Lovely warm room , friendly staff and down stairs the Marco Pierre White New York Italian restaurant serving delicious food : what a combination. I have stayed in this hotel before and would come back again and again . It is close to Kenilworth Castle and one can walk across the park to it .

Solid hotel, actually one of the best in the area. There are people traveling here because of that. Great service and decent breakfast. Lots of parking spaces available and located right in The center and next to the park.

Our second visit to this hotel, had pre booked and asked for early checkin and walk in shower. Normal check in 2.00pm we arrived at 12.00 and a room was ready for us. Rooms are of a good quality with everything you need including soaps and shampoos etc. tea/coffee facilities are available in your room. The only negative is the rooms can be cold, at our last visit I thought the bathroom had underfloor heating but this one did not. A separate electric radiator is in your room which we used and found the room was then fine. The issue then is the corridors are very cold. We did not eat an evening meal but the breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice, buffet style. Friendly welcome who took you to your table and explained what was available. Our breakfast was included in the package but if bought separately was shown as £14.95 which is a little steep. Car parking was fine but don't park as I did under the trees by the car park entrance unless you are happy to have to clean your car in the morning from the bird droppings.

Room is a good clean standard for business customers. You wouldn't stay here as a weekend break unless just a sleep place. Table place has the plug sockets required for laptop etc. But no sockets bedside? An expected comfortable Mon - Fri hotel for travel work... But that's all.

We stayed for a weekend break 26-28 Jan. on arrival the manager insisted he help carry our bags to the top floor as the lift stopped one floor short. We were expecting him to arrive several hours later but within around ten minuets there was a knock at the door and in walked the manager, as promised, carrting our cases having hauled them up the two last flights of stairs.

Comfortable rooms, but the beds could do with replacing. Can't comment on the food, as we didn't eat there. Very surly bar service, but there are lots of good pubs in the immediate area. Good location and parking.

Stayed for 1 night last night with my husband and 2 kids! The staff were fantastic and very welcoming!! Food in the restaurant was delicious! Very happy with our stay, would definitely stay here again!
