All facilities None
Excellent evening meal in restaurant. Good service quick check in Very hot in room opened windows which helped us get to sleep. Room was clean and beds comfortable.
Room was clean & comfortable. Breakfast is great Location great. Bathroom needed some tlc and a refresh. Lack of full air-conditioning. Did have a built in fan of sorts.
Easy access to NEC site The decor is a bit "tired" although I appreciate the hotel is well used 24/7
Reception did try to help with the problems I encountered. I had to move rooms twice because there was so much noise coming from other rooms. The first night I was woken three times - a crying baby downstairs first, then drunk people next door, then an argument on the other side early in the morning. Not the hotel's fault exactly and reception did try to help but at the end of the day the one thing you need in a hotel is to be able to sleep at night. The gym and leisure bit compensates a bit but otherwise there isn't much to recommend it. Avoid.
The staff are great and the food in the resturant was billiant. Easy 10 minute walk to Birmingham International rail station and NEC. Plenty of parking for the rooms available. Common areas have been updated and are bright, clean and plesant. Internet slow (but reliable) , room was a bit dated and bathroom needed a little TLC but clean and functional. some rooms are very close to busy A45 but more than adaque sound proofing as long as you don't expect to have your windows open, there is no Air Conditining so this can make regulating the room tempreach a balancing act.
Very nice hotel. The position was perfect for the LG arena. Only a few minutes walk. Would definately recommend it
Freindly Staff Value for money size of room no bath
Polite and helpful staff Tv to complecated
Efficient and friendly Staff Very good pool and liesure set up Room a little basic - very little toiletries and no biscuits with the coffee/tea making facilities
ease of access to rail station & airport & NEC facilities. The staff were very helpful & polite. Would definately use this hotel again.
The public areas were very welcoming, the restaurant was very good and the staff were very helpful. The coldness of the breakfast room which was almost next to the front door.
Quiet area,nice clean rooms the staff were very helpful and pleasant and we thought the restaurant was excellent.
Visited Kenilworth and other historic sites Already wrote in your longer review that the ventiation hole in the wall just in line with the head of the bed spolied an otherwise comfortable night. The draught has left us both with heavy colds now!
Easy to get to from main routes. Poached eggs at breakfast did not seem freshly cooked.
It is very conveniently located for the NEC and easy to find. The facilities are more than adequate for guests who are only using the hotel to eat and sleep. As this is an NEC hotel it would be very useful if breakfast started earlier at the weekends. NEC delegates and exhibitors need to be there by 0800-0815 everyday so breakfast starting at 0800 is not helpful. This should be mentioned in the hotel information to help plan the stay.
Convenient for a business trip the cost had increased by £10 in the space of a month this I find extradinary.
Good food free 30min internet pleasant staff
I meet a friend up with a friend (it was a half way meeting point between our 2 homes) We had a drink and eat at the local pub I would have preferered to have the option of purchasing a room without breakfasts.Felt £61 was overpriced for a mid week 1 night stay
Very close to shops and services - within 5 minutes walk of the main shopping area. Had no key for my room so I had to be let in by hotel staff each time. Got held up at reception as somebody was being quite forthright in asking for rooms to be swapped around. As I was the only other person waiting I feel I should have been served first so that the receptionist could go back to the more complicated complaint. Lift was broken and kept stopping on floor 5. Windows are complicated which could be an issue in summer.
Leaving Website states Carpark, there is no carpark at the hotel, I had to use a pay and display 6 minutes walk away. Room was very poorly maintained. No vending machine in operation so could not get a snack on arrival at 11pm. Breakfast was luke warm, just passable but not worth the £10 charged
nothing The quality of this hotel was very poor, its badly needs modernising, the heating did not work and the food was poor.
Easy access to City Centre, breakfast excellent,efficient polite staff No hotel parking
convinient central location no
In City Centre The shabbiness of the room, and ill fitting, matress and duvet to bed base.
The size of the room. Doors and frames needed replacing .Also around the bath the sealant needed replacing.
The convenience of being in the City Centre and not being that far from our function. The hotel was excellent in all categories
the fact that it was in the town centre and near the bus station which made it easy for me to my business. Nice large room and a good breakfast to start the day.
The free tea and coffee and the trouser press. The odd stain on the carpet and the increased security on the hotel room door did not seem to work
The Hotel was big but still very cosy. The standards of the rooms outweighed my expectations and I was upgraded for free as there was a better room available. I really couldnt recommend this hotel enough
The breakfast service & food were both good & efficient The long walk and lack of lifts to my room
Bars One bar closed early
Convenient location. Low noise level from outside. Comfortable. Couldn't get a small snack with a glass of wine.
I thought the whole experience staying at the Manor was a very pleasant one, from the warm welcome on arrival the service at breakfast through to the help I received on departure. Nothing
The staff were very friendly even though the hotel was very quiet.Especially the lady who served in the Triumph bar and the food was excellent
Located near to NEC Staff inexperienced and not the most customer orientated. Quite expensive for the quality and the limited facilities.
It was clean and comfotable. the staff were polite friendly and helpfull
A perfect setting in a beautiful suburb not far from NEC Good food and a friendly staff
Excellent hotel, highly recommended
Excellent service from helpful and experienced staff, feature rooms with period furniture were a delight, good choice of food well prepared, and beautiful, well kept gardens.
The hotel staff were extremely efficient and friendly, nothing was too much trouble, the hotel is an exceptional location and eventhough it was a busy weekend the hotel was peaceful and relaxed.
The atmosphere and surroundings, and also the peace and tranquility
The unique nature of the hotel and the staff who were excellent. It was exceptional value for money as well. I will certainly stay there again
The most wonderful hotel we have ever stayed in. Just beautiful. The bill was wrong when first issued. This was corrected very quickly.
The setting of this hotel is really special. Located adjacent to a beautiful park with nice walks and woodland it is a great place for spending time relaxing. For me, the darkened medieval atmosphere and interesting decoration is what sets it apart. At £170 for the night, it was the most expensive hotel I've stayed at. But, other than its unique setting and interesting decor, it certainly didn't offer anything else as outstanding as the price. Service was very basic. For instance, no-one to show you to the room, certainly no help to carry your bags. No indication either at check-in or on the paperwork that check-out is 11.00am. Breakfast was included, but as it finished too early for me at 10.00 am this was not sampled. Also, there was pressure to throw me out of the room at 11.00am as this is their (too early) check-out time. Perhaps a visit to the far East for the staff would educate them in the standards that are now expected by international travellers.
Very atmospheric - loved the 'Ancient' decor! Much too dark - couldn't see to read in the bedrooms and quite often got lost in the corridors - very confusing in an emergency!
Beautiful old Abbey, with decor consistent with old english style. Staff were exceptional Could do with a better hot water system
It was such a different hotel experince and very intersting from a historical perspective- great price at off peak rates wonderfully quiet, tranquil, excellent food and the staff made you feel very special. A great place to go with a few friends to get away and relax in style. You really need to have a rental car so you can drive around and explore the other areas like Warwick castle
My stay was very comfortable and relaxed enhanced by the atmosphere and setting of the abbey's history. Most enjoyable and will visit again when opportunity allows.
The facilities were ok for the price...ie.Bar / Breakfast. and the hotel is fairly close to the NEC. The hotel staff in the Bar /Front Desk/Restaurant seemed bored and demotivated. There didn't seem to be many people staying at the hotel, so it seemed the were doing 'the minimum'
Good hotel and good clean room and breakfast nice. I was asked for extra £20 pounds when arriving but it said on website all fees and service charges were included in the room charge but I got it sorted out by a member of my party.
Good environment and nice golf pitch. I found a spider on my bed.
The Leisure facilities and sauna were superb, very clean, with the staff being most helpful. The pool was really good. The reception staff were also very helpful in sorting out a colleague at their sister hotel nearby
Due to our experience there was nothing to like apart from the view from the room. Bedspread in room 219 had holes. Went to Cellar Bar late pm prior to dinner - bar was full of 'gents' and very rowdy - eventually gave up and went upstairs with our drinks. Went to dinner to discover that myself and friend were the only females in the restaurant. Although only 7.45pm restaurant very loud as golf parties and stag do's in already - as obviously been drinking 'all afternoon' there behaviour was not suitable to being in a restaurant. Menu disappointing as it had half of the choices on it that the web site gave. Food poor quality - only canteen standard as obviously used to being 'churned' out in high volume for golfers and stags. Trouble in Cellar Bar late at night - drunk tried to intice husband into a fight.
Altho very near centre of Coventry, one would have thought you were in the country. Very friendly staff, fantastic Leisure centre and pool, choice of a restaurant or Cellar bar for food & drinks, very reasonably priced.
Great hotel and leisure club just wished i'd stayed longer to use them ! comfortable clean beds and towels breakfast was great and lots of it, would certainly stay again.had an event at the Motorcycle Museum which was really close. None
the swimming pool and facilities
The swimming pool was very good and the man opened it up especially for me as they had listed the opening times wrong. The restaurant had very little menu choice. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. The staff failed to make my wake up call making me late for attendance on our stand at a show at the nec. Not very happy. Was booked for two nights, only stayed the one!
We found the hotel to be clean and comfortable, it suited all of our needs, and the food was really good, if a little too 'arty' for our tastes.
Good staff on reception and in breakfast room Room was a bit cold - had to ask for a heater. Toiled for a long time to get internet access - when I queried with reception they said they had to "release" access - which was annoying as I wasted time trying to resolve. Would have been useful if there had been a notice in the room to this effect.
Room was excellent Restauant was fully booked in the evening although plenty of takeout places to choosee from. The staff were really slow in the morning at breakfast too ordered a coffee and then sat there for 10 mins with no one explaining it was self-service and then not knowing how to charge the bill to my room account. Was in a hurry, so really annoying
The hotel was easy to get to. The room and bed were comfortable. The breakfast buffet was of a very high quality, it's not often that hotel breakfasts are worth the money but this one was. The room had not been vacuumed before I arrived. The room was too hot when I arrived and the air conditioning was set to be 'centrally controlled' so I couldn't change it.
Friendly staff Difficult to struggle through the dorrs from the car park with suitcase, brief case, laptop and handbag!
Nice place and centrally located Room wasn't very warm
From the second you set foot through the doors into the foyer, there was a great warmh of welcome as well as a very high standard of cleanliness and attention to detail on the interior design.
Fine,it is good and the service is fine .the only problem is it is too cold inside the room,even if turn the air conditioner to 30degree
The whole experience was brilliant at a brilliant price too
very friendly and helpful staff, central location
Staff helpful and discrete Hotel was cold in places at times toilets on first floor were rather lonely, seemed strange that none on ground floor
We loved everything about it, the food, beer and service was excellent. the room was clean and the location is very good for the Birmingham NEC which was the reason why we stayed at The Old Mill. The pub has loads of character as well. We would definitely stay there again There was nothing that we didn't like about it
very quiet and romantic hotel to stay at stairs going to the rooms were very squeaky late at night
Size of room,location of hotel,very comfortable
The location and setting of the hotel was superb. The room was very spacious and clean. The restaurant had a wonderful ambience and a good selection of food on the menu. Sitting outside, enjoying a drink, on the decking area by the river was very pleasant. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would recommend the hotel to anybody looking for a quiet relaxing break.
Service and Comfort
Staff very friendly and nice bar/restaurant Noisy central heating system
Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, big rooms. The room could have had a bit more lighting,
Staff were very helpful The food, to be avoided at all costs. My partner was served mashed potato that was still frozen.
friendliness of staff also beside river location shower facilities were "tired" and need refurbishing
Excellent service from all staff. Excellent food and restaurant facilities. Excellent ambience in bar and restaurant area. Spacious room layout. Free wifi and excellent car parking facilities. Felt safe as a single female guest. External light close to the window and only a thin blind meant that the room remained relatively light all night making it difficult to sleep. Pillows thin, hard and uncomfortable. Shower would not fully turn off and could be heard dripping all night - again making it difficult to sleep.
Absolutely superb idea mixing the hotel with a Loch Fyne restaurant. Excellent evening meal and superb kippers for breakfast. Couldn't believe some people were having bacon and eggs! Can't think of any.
We stayed here when dropping our son off at Warwick Uni. Very convenient for uni, and nice part of the world. Hotel is small but rooms are clean and well designed and restaurant is good. Particularly found the staff professional and relaxed. A good team. We have already booked our return.
The hotel is ideally situated for my needs. It is pleasant, comfortable and quiet. Only a small point but it would be nice to be able to switch off the bedside lamp with a switch on the lamp rather than having to reach through the bedside table and switch off the power from the socket.
Great on-site restaurant Parking behind hotel is difficult to find on arrival and has narrow spaces
Comfortable bed, good breakfast.
The superb resraurant with excellent service and value I have none
Excellent room, clean, comfortable. Modern but plenty of character. Friendly helpful staff. Excellent food, dinner and breakfast. Not enough milk with tea-making kit. Motion detector in bathroom needs to be more sensitive to prevent blackouts. Don't need "muzak" at breakfast!
High quality feel to the room, quality textiles and linen. Excellent bed. Food first class. Will definately stay again. Although my room was beutifully finnished it was rather small - room 26. Brealfast service a little casual.
Beautiful characteristic building, clean modern bedrooms, polite and helpful staff, great seafood restaurant, very close to Kenilworth Castle, close to many other great bars, restaurants and pubs. I eventually had to leave.
Food okay Reception - bloody slow. Bar - cold and slow servioce.
No draught beer
Lobby bar, reception service. No service at breakfast, cold plates, had to ask twice for tea, then had to get own cups, knifed forks ect... Off other tables, in view of waiters who did or said nothing. Room smelt damp and looked a little dated.
Good value at £59 but not if if it was dearer Standards have slipped in last 3 years Breakfast not so good No biscuits in rooms Had the nerve to charge residents to park there!
The relaxed atmosphere and friendliness of staff.
We were close to the NEC (attending Crufts) Hotel easy to find, we were made welcome - no charge for our dog, (unlike most hotels/travel lodges). Breakfast delicious and service excellent! Had slight problem with leak on shower attachment (got soaked!) and bath taps a bit strange.
helpfull staff, good food, easy parking no
Good price, in a good location, it had very comfortable beds and pillows, nice fire in the bar. Buffet breakfast not great, the food was served too cold. And the temperature in the bar was too cold also.
Excellent value for money on the price we paid. Plenty of available car parking space. Friendly and helpful staff. Good location to Birmingham and walking distance to Touchwood shopping centre. Good breakfast and leisure centre. Its was cold. Very cold in the corridors and room was cold, as the heating system was not working. Vector heaters had already been given out, but extra blankets were delivered to our room very promptly. Only heating in the room was the bathrooms towel rail.
Would happily stay again, clean and friendly place. Great value for money and loved the extra pillows! Beds are a little hard and one of our key cards did not work. Also tv was a little small and bath headboard was broken. Cheap toilet paper
That it was within easy reach of Birmingham NEC without being in the city. Pleasant surroundings,neatly tucked away from the road. The toilet paper was very cheap and nasty. Something you would expect in a public toilet not a hotel. Breakfast if paid for at the hotel, too expensive. Would book online next time!
The hotel was convienient for my meeting in coventry, the receptionist was helpful & quick with booking me in, I had to change my room as the first room I was put into smelt damp & musty, the guests in the next room decided to use their jaquzzi bath at 1am in the morning and the noise was horrendous so had very little sleep The was a large que for breakfast -so i had to leave without as I would have missed my meeting if I had stayed in the que
the breakfast's were very good and very good value for money bathroom was very dirty
The breakfast was good. The staff had no time for you.
beautiful grounds,large room indifferent check in staff
Had pool jacuzzi steamroom Showers in the pool stunk
receptionist (an Irish lad) was very helpful and extremely efficient. He was an excellent frnt man for the hotel.
Needed to have some paper work faxed to a customer, not a problem, will do that for you was the reply I got from the front desk, well done I would look at what's on offer food wise, people don't mind paying a bit extra for a larger menue.
the overall experience was great. Fantastic value for money. Staff friendly and informative. Breakfast was enjoyable and plenty off it. All in all 10 out of 10! Nothing!
The food, the staff see above
Friendly staff, good food, and nice indoor pool.
thee relaxed atmosphere
Breakfast & Dinner very good Good hairdryer in useful position No drawers in room
Nice hotel good food, nice bar. My top floor room had no cold water in the morning
This hotel amazed me and my friend when we stayed for one night.The facillities were more like a 5* rating, very large room with large plasma tv's. We spent afew hour in the spa to relax,afew drinks by the fire in the bar and found that the buffet breakfast was fantastic. We will certainly be booking here again for next year the room price was unbeatable in the area. nothing at all.
Excellent food served by charming staff The rooms were very hot becuase it was not possible to open the window fully. This made sleeping rather difficult.
the room the arrangements at breakfast
Very comfortable hotel and extremly attentive staff - would definately book again Breakfast great but evening meals very expensive and only one meal choice for vegetarians !!!
Great value, clean and well equipped rooms, excellent restaurant and bars. Welcoming reception staff
Access to gym, pool and spa facilities.
The room was typical clean and servicable The added costs of parking and booking wasn't inclusive of breakfast.staff needed some customer care training and attitude seemed laissez faire and an impostion th\at they had customers!
the very large king size bed and the leisure facilities, food was also very nice no the hotel was very good
Bar meals poor paid £5.50 for jacket spud with cheese only just warm and the size was so small it would not fill a child. We also had a pizza at £8.50 which was one we could have gone and brought from tescos plus it was so over cooked I could not eat any of the edge as it was so hard and again only just warm.Plus the hotal as followed other hotels in which the customer has to make his owen coffee in morning which is out of a machine ( rubbish)
On arrival the receptionist was very un welcoming. She was ubrupt and basically rude. She was also unaware of the rate we had agreed with yourselves, although did accept it
We were upgraded. Location to the town. Choice for Breakfast
nice and quiet in the bedroom
We enjoyed the spa as we needed to relax after our long drive and our bad start to our stay with you. comment sent to customer service. Cold room and having to wait to have our breakfast.
My room was very spacious, clean, comfortable, and quiet. Staff were very helpful.
Spacious room The bar was noisy but one had to consider that there was a wedding reception
Friendly, clean, good service and they went out of their way to give me a room earlier than normal check in as I had to change and go out quickly. Thought it was a bit expensive for what it was. It is not an easy Hotel to get around with lots of stairs to negotiate but then it is an old building.
The hotel was very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable with good amenities. The restaurant food was excellent and fairly priced. The breakfast was slightly undercooked. Tea/ coffee would be better as self service.
Restaurant was great, food very good and nice atmosphere. Bedroom very cold and unfortunately I was above the boiler room which was noisy at times, but overall I couldn't complain.
Nice setting, great staff & excellent value for money. It couldn't have been better. In addition the breakfast was excellent.
The room was bigger and more stylish than average, the bed very comfortable Nothng,
Very friendly staff and very clean bedroom/bathroom. Room was freezing on arrival. Breakfast was very average - the fruit on display was very poor.
Food and bar area fantastic Terrible generator noise during middle of night, reported to reception in morning, but they were very dismissive, and did nothing. Very bad night sleep.
Friendly staff, easy check in/out. Fantastic range of local restaurants
Very friendly and welcoming staff
It is right in the heart of a very pretty village high street yet very close to motorway links and major towns/cities Room was smaller than I'd expected (though comfortable). Air conditioning might have been nice.
Reception and dining room staff were friendly and helpful. This is 2nd time I have stayed as it's convenient for the NEC. It's quiet, easy access to M42, Birmingham airport. I shall stay again.
Superb room and facilities, would recommend the restaurant.
Nice breakfast and the hotel was clean The bed matress needed to be changed as we both kept rolling to the center of it over night. The bathroom was very clean but I found the tops of the bedroom furniture were dusty.
Excellent food, helpful staff Rooms were tired, poorly maintained, and in need of a refurb.
Meal was very good Thin walled rooms, noisy when there are a lot of people staying
The friendliness of the staff
Very friendly welcome - in fact all staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable and the food was excellent. A very minor quibble is that the bar didn't open until 6.30. The TV was very small but otherwise, no negatives.
quality of food in the restuarant
The location was perfect for the NEC The temperature of the hotel, the room was very hot even when we turned the radiator off in the bedroom, we could not regulate the bathroom radiator. It was a bit uncomfortable
Convenience of position Bed not comfortable
The suite was fabulous and made our visit There was a large party staying and that meant we were in able to get a table for dinner.
The hotel provided an excellent base for a visit to Solihull for a personal visit for the funeral of a close friend. The standard of the hotel was not my highest priority. The strange arrangement of the car park and getting parking tickets validated.
The friendlyness of the staff. Especially at Breakfeast .Asthey were very busy but coped very well .
Very nice staff Therooms are very dated - No double glazing so quite noisy and the TVs are very dated and often stop working.
position of hotel
Staff very friendly Double bed was 2 single mattresses pushed together, no fitness facilities
Although the Ramamda double booked me they could not have been more accomodating. They sorted the problems out efficiently and I was given an executive room. The hotel is very close to town and the staff are friendly. Only problem was during my checkout; their was only one lady at the desk (she got flack for this) and it took 45 minutes to check-out, however stayed calm and tried her best. Breakfast a little dry but not horrible!
Not alot poor reception service
It was within walking distance of good shops, pubs and night life The bed,s were very hard
Cleanliness of hotel...staff were friendly Paying for Parking at the Hotel £8 per car per night
Convenience and location for the NEC. Excellant accces to Solihull shops.
Staff were fantastic...rooms were very comfortable. Food amazing!
Friendliness of all the staff
A lovely hotel in a nice quiet location. The staff were very helpful and the room was very comfortable.
Helpful, approachable staff. Modern decor & food to very good standard in a traditional setting. Close to nec but in a quiet, country location. Comfortable rooms. Room could do with air conditioning
Easy parking. Luxurious room. Friendly staff. Lovely grounds.
Top hotel , great location . room spotless and modern , recommended all round .
The hotel was as always excellent. The staff were very friendly and professional, and when in the area again will book Hogarths.
Staff were extremely attentive without being intrusive.
lovely meal -friendly staff
The grounds were lovely. The Bed extremely comfortable and it was great having a Jacuzzi, although it was very noisy
Not a great deal to be honest. Arrived at 7pm and told could not have a meal as there was a christmas party, kept awake most of the night by the party goers banging doors screaming and shouting and then arrived for our continental breakfast to see a box of cereal on offer and that was it!! We left at that point and explained to the receptionist the situation and was looked at blankly!!! Most of it, the reception area has obviously been updated and no doubt the rooms are on the cards! Booked the suite and it did not materialise, we had a fairly "old looking" room.
Very friendly staff who were extremely helpful and efficient. The restaurant provided good food and excellant value as did the hotel accomodation. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel and its staff to friends looking to stay in a hotel in this area. None
Good breakfast The room we were initially given had not been serviced but that was soon rectified.Also the TV didn't work properly but, again, this was soon recyified.
Very good value for money, clean and comfortable, free parking and breakfast was adequate. Recently refurbished. Deffinately recommend this to others.
The hotel was really nice considering it is such a reasonable price. Breakfast in the morning started at 7, but was not ready at 7.. Often took about 10 minutes for everything to come out - so not suitable for those that need to leave early.
Great value for money, I paid £39 for this room at short notice. The staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. The location was great for the city centre, which was within walking distance. Very clean hotel lobby and room The shower was a wee bit tricky to turn on/off but otherwise fine
Quiet, polite staff. My wife complained that the bed was too soft
Clean confortable room, very good value weekend rate, good breakfast in attractive conservatory. Pleasant helpful staff. Accomodation building typical of a conference venue and the main building apart lacking any character.
The main hotel part. The acccommodation being outside. It felt like you were going to a swimming pool.
Very friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Good value for money. Our room did not reflect the rooms advertised on the web site and this was a huge disappointment. Sauna not working.
Wonderful setting, good value for money. Good facilities. The furniture in the room was very basic and looked cheap. Booked double room for 2 people, yet bed pushed against wall, so not very practical for 2.
stayed at hotel after a wedding that took place there. found the staff helpful and friendly and food was exellent. none
Lovely room with plenty of hot water and contempory products. Excellent quality towels and very comfortable bed. We were impressed with the ipod dock as well. Polite staff which contributed to a brilliant evening at a wedding reception. We were a little disappointed that we weren't informed of the sauna/gym facilities as we would have loved to have taken advantage of these. Perhaps pointing this out on booking confirmations would be a good idea as we didn't have time to look at your web site.
The staff were very attentive and nothing was to much trouble. They ar a credit to teh hotel and company. PLease pass on my comments.
the site was excellent and just a sort distance from town
