... To do this we need many things, not least of which is a strong dependable workhorse to get us around and arguably no better vehicle exists for this than a Toyota Land Cruiser 80 series. So, here's a picture of our latest acquisition. It's nearly 20 years old and has done nearly 167,000 miles and still going strong. It's in standard shape right now and will be base lined for a long trip and have few modifications to ...

... everybody else in the 'room’, I just don’t care. Julie wandered off to get a refill of cider during the set which is a shame because at the end there was a change of emphasis, the interaction with the crowd got much better (in his introduction to their excellent cover of “Sea Cruise” the singer managed to be funny and finishing of with The Specials’ “You’re Wondering Now” was inspired and got almost everybody back on side and ...

... natural archer and her success in front of a crowd snapped her out of Moodyville - for the time being anyway. Next stop was Nuneaton where we managed to catch up with my family. It was ( as always) like slipping into comfortable shoes and as if I never left. With the exception of the next generation tearing around Uncle Martin and Aunt Laura's garden and dear Uncle Dave's absence, everything was just as ...

We are back in London after nine days on the road with Philip, our Back Roads Tours driver/guide. Such a great experience with a friendly, knowledgeable, thoroughly professional and very skilful driver and a wonderfully cheerful group of companions. We have learned much about the three Cs: ...

... eventually get a taxi and meet me there.

As I left the pub an annoying drizzle started. The further I got from shelter, the heavier the rain got until eventually I relented and stopped under a tree to put a waterproof on, realising when I did that I also had Julie’s waterproof with me. Seemed like a good idea when we packed for the weekend. By the time I got to the park entrance it was raining hard and people without kagoules or umbrellas ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Britannia Hotel Coventry

    Britannia hotel, tired hotel, helpful staff

    from

    Tired hotel, tatty stained carpets, worn furniture, old cracked bathroom sink, no hot water @ 7 am wait till 8. Iron in a board-room on second floor.

    Very helpful staff, food good, room large enough cleanish and did not smell of smoke, easy to find with parking nearby(2 overnight).

    Only place I could get short notice. Next time I'll try and book earlier. There must be other hotels at a resonable price.

    Get that front door fixed or at least unlock the other one.

    Won't stay there again!

    from

    The rooms weren't as bad as I expected, it did need a good clean and was very tired and dated. Bed was OK, carpet was dire, toilet made a noise like it was going to blow up. Room was noisy (from outside) as it is near the bus station.

    I stayed in 411 (next to fire escape) and was plagued with idiots running along corridor, knocking on door and disappearing down fire exit. To be fair when I complained to the duty manager (after 4 knock & runs) he did do a sweep of hotel and it did not happen again.

    On the positive side, staff were very helpful, food was good and plenty of it, it only cost 72.50 for D,B&B and parking was cheap (50p).

    That aside would not stay again!

    It really is as bad as they say....

    from

    Yes, sorry Brittania, but it really is a terrible place. Some rooms even have a jacussi bath fitted - why?!!! Some paint and new carpets would be of more use.

    You kind of know that it's not going to be good when the office block style glass front door scrapes the floor as you open it...

    I'm not joking, but I felt like I needed a surgical mask for my own protection.

    Yes, the Village Coventry is a much better bet.

    Poor hotel but good staff

    from

    The hotel is certainly not as nice as I expected it to be and the pictures on the internet are very misleading.

    However the staff were very plesant to us, especially a waitress called Tina who we found to be very friendly and helpful.

    Terrible! worst hotel ever stayed in

    from

    stayed here for 2 nights in fourth floor rooms. Kettle in room had dirty brown water in it and green mould and smelt foul, for which the duty manager apologised for and gave us free bottle of wine for. towells in room had dirty stains on them for which the duty manager gave us another bottle of free wine for.

    I have stayed at Britannia hotel on many occasions and always had great service, the staff could not have been any nicer. Although the receptionists are a bit facially challenged, what they lack in looks they make up for it in effort. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Coventry.

    Very friendly and helpful staff, nice Hotel.

    from

    This Hotel has extremely efficient, pleasant and friendly staff. I recently stayed at this Hotel for the weekend and I was pleasantly surprised by how friendly and helpful the staff where. The Hotel itself is very clean and adequate, the rooms are spacious and I was very comfortable here. I would not hesitate in recommending this Hotel, I am returning next year and will be looking forward to the same excellent service that I received last time.

    Absolutely Awful!

    from

    I wish I had looked at this site prior to staying at the Britannia Hotel Coventry.

    Worst hotel in Coventry

    from

    This is honestly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. It is not the fault of the chain that is is truely the most depressing 1960's concrete tower block from the outside and I was sure it would improve inside. No way!!!

    Had an awful time here

    from

    We stayed for 2 nights here when visiting my brother and would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
