clean room. friendly staff. only thing id change is check out time to 12.00 from10.00 which was a bit early and put a hairdryer in the room
Pleasant B&B-style accommodation above a pub
The Cottage Inn is basically a small family-run (I think) pub with an associated B&B business.
The rooms are en-suite, with comfortable bed, TV and tea/coffee-making facilities, but the one I stayed in (room 5) was quite small. Just the bed and a wardrobe, with a couple of bedside tables but no desk/dressing table (and no space for one). I guess if I wanted to work I could go down into the pub to find a table to sit at--or they'd probably let me sit in the breakfast room--but that might be a bit noisy. So, probably not the place to stay if you are planning to write your important presentation there. Breakfast is Full English, and they are happy to be flexible. If you don't fancy a sausage, just say so. Cereal is also provided, but if your breakfast of choice is a croissant you might be disappointed, hence only a 5 rather than a 6. The pub does food at lunchtime and in the evenings too, but I didn't sample it so can't comment. I stayed here because I was lecturing at Warwick University. There is a nice bike path from Forge Road, just opposite the inn, to the University--2.5 miles, about 50 minutes' walk (probably about 15 if you bring a bike). There's parking at the inn and buses, if you're not feeling energetic. Kenilworth centre is about 15 minutes' walk away. Summary: nothing fancy, but conveniently located, with friendly helpful staff. This is the third time I've stayed there when visiting the university, and I probably will again. Good value for money.
great value for money
great customer service - room clean walls a bit thin - and one of the beds (twin room) very creaky (quite noisy if you're a restless sleeper) - but as staying alone had other bed to sleep in - very comfortable and a good nights sleep.
freshly cooked breakfast
Dated and old fashioned
I was disappointed to find mould on the walls, the room was a very small twin bedroom with sink in the actual bedroom.
Shower would have benefitted from a proper screen rather than a curtain which quickly attaches itself to you!. The mattress was sagging all down one side I think due to the fact the actual room is on a slight slope. I could feel the springs also which made for a poor nights sleep. The old fashioned pine furniture looked dated and dusty in places. Towels were small and you need to remember to take your own toiletries and hairdryer as not supplied. Breakfast served between 7.30- 8.30 so don't expect a lie in if you want this. Breakfast basic but ok apart from sausage which tasted like it had been microwaved. Staff I saw were pleasant.
The Cottage Inn
Nice B&B, excellent value, pleasant staff.
Recommend as good quality budget accomodation
Twin bedroom experience
The pub was friendly, helpful and ok food.
The room was out of the 1950s and completely let the establishment down. Damp, faded, overcrowded with furniture etc
Over night stop
The staff were friendly the room was very basic & small.
Wardrobe doors do not close so had to push bed up against them so you didn't walk into them. Then there was nowhere to put clothes no chair only a tiny stool that had the clean towels on which did not fit under dressing table. No central heating so there was a convector heater but if you moved it the legs fell off. The very old & dated bathroom smells of damp & the wash basin was in the bedroom. There was no hooks / shelf/ or towel rail so no where to put towels when u showered. However the breakfast was good.
Good food but accommodation very basic
The Cottage Inn is a very popular local pub - very busy and with a good atmosphere.
We had dinner and breakfast at the pub and the food was good - not gourmet but popular home cooked meals. Service was friendly and good. Because the food was good we returned the next day and took two elderly aunts to lunch - again the pub was almost full so is well known locally for inexpensive food. When we went up to our room we were a bit disappointed - for the same price as a Travelodge or Premier Inn we had a very small double room and en suite bathroom. The bathroom was clean but the sink was tiny . The room was clean and the bed was comfortable but it was really small and the bathroom had seen better days. The friendliness of the staff and good food made it a place we would consider staying again - but the accommodation was disappointing.
Handy for Stoneleigh events
Friendly affordable and convenient for any event at Stoneleigh as is a short 10 minute drive door to door.
Budget accommodation at B&B prices.
It looked like a great pub stay on the site, but just your archetypal pub accommodation.
Think Acorn Antiques - and you would be along the right lines. Wouldnt take much to make it feel so much more welcoming. Room had signs of damp. Shower shoved in. the wardrobe. A floor that was so creaky I tried not to move around to avoid waking up the other guests. Almost raw bacon in the morning and coffee that was obviously cheap instant and undrinkable.
Honestly, a Traveldoge is only a few quid more, but streets ahead.
