We booked this hotel for a wedding in nearby Leamington. It was by far the cheapest option and this was the biggest factor for my choice.
I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel, considering the low price and just above average reviews I'd seen. The room was generally very clean, the staff helpful, the bed comfy and the facilities all did the job. The wifi was free (I'd read it would cost £10 a day so I was pleasantly surprised) and fast enough to stream tv shows without buffering. Considering that it's right next to the M40, we were surprised by just how peaceful our nights sleep was. Also, the Starbucks and Waitrose next door are handy.
The only downside is its location. Without a car, we had to rely on lifts and taxis (which are not cheap – £18 to Leamington!). The hotel is only accessible from the north-bound side of the motorway (unless you know the sneaky service road entrance near Chesterton). I realise that it's my own fault, booking a hotel on a motorway when I don't drive, but I thought I'd mention it so that nobody makes the same mistake!
If you have a car, this hotel is great. If you don't, and will be catching cabs, just spend a little extra on somewhere more centrally located instead.
"Luxe & comfy, walking distance from Warwick Castle"
This is a fantastic place to stay if you're visiting Warwick. Firstly, the room was spacious with a super-comfy bed, mini-bar with complimentary water, Nespresso coffee & tea maker, large flat-screen TV with SKY, free Wi-Fi, modern & funky bathroom AND Temple Spa toiletries. The only downside was the green light to show you where to exit in case of fire, as this did make the room brighter than I would've liked at night.
The staff are fantastic, genuinely friendly and clearly enjoy their job. They couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable, and ensure we were well-fed & watered.
O.M.G - the food! Breakfast is amazing - we highly recommend the Eggs Benedict & Eggs Royale, which will set you up nicely for a day out exploring the vicinity. The whole menu is well considered & perfectly executed, vegetarians are also amply catered for.
The hotel has no parking but there is a reasonable car park a few minutes' walk away
A fashionable spa town in the 19th century, Royal Leamington Spa received its noble title after a visit from Queen Victoria. Today, Leamington is popular for its preserved architecture and shopping center. Nearby Warwick is home to the medieval Warwick Castle. Perched on a bluff, visitors who dare to walk the castle walls are rewarded with expansive views of the River Avon valley.
