... 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 ...

... indie rock band who have been on the scene for years and have done pretty well, with a new album “TV en Francais” this year were the penultimate act on the stage. I didn’t mind their stuff at all. I would have enjoyed it more, perhaps, had I spent some time listening to their music before the festival but time is always precious and I’d spent some of it revising Buzzcocks. Pleasant enough in the late evening sun and definitely not lacking energy.

... and early 1980s. We’d seen them at Godiva a few years previously and they’d been good but they were without singer Pauline Black at that time and now Pauline was back with them. By the time they came on stage the rain had finished, the ground underfoot seemed to have survived (we’ve had several mainly rain-free weeks) and the crowd had grown considerably, with people who no doubt remembered The Selecter from the first time round down to ...

... Fiat Bambino out of my mind. A little pregnant pasty with a chainsaw motor won't cut it on the motorway. Can I get the bike in it? Will it have enough room for Sue's massive trunk!
Anyway after a super long wait at the Hertz depot our Fiat turned up....two toned breadvan with mag wheels. Surprisingly it drove ok.
Today's first objective was to drive up to Coventry, book into our hotel and a welcome shower.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Court Hotel - Coventry

    Beautiful and tranquil stay

    from

    On arrival at the Hotel we were greeted with a smile and friendly reception staff who were helpful - we were allocated a bedroom with Jacuzzi, a bonus, the room was clean, and pleasant. We experienced the delights of the gym and pool area - the pool was great and the gym very well equipped. Then we had a Carvery dinner - the restaurant staff were efficient and the food very good. Overall impression was high. The grounds of the Hotel are very well maintained. We would certainly stay at the Hotel again.

    Pretty ordinary court !

    from

    Stayed in a standard double room in second week of Dec 2005 for 3 days. Don't take it for the name and photos. This is just an average hotel below standards from what you would expect. The room cleanliness was just OK but the mattress is really terrible and gave me a backache every morning. Bathroom standards were very ordinary and the use the toiletries provided only if you really need to. For a satisfactory breakfast -you should only eat cereals, toasts, croissants and fruits and avoid everything that is kept hot.

    Not recommended

    from

    Stayed here for one night during a conference and that was enough. The conference facilities were superb but the room was appalling: chocolate brown bathroom suite urgh! Terrible bed with old fashioned covers. Dowdy decor and poor quality all round. but what was worse was the lack of hot water when i got back to my room at 5pm, the shower refused to work and the toilet didn't flush. the breakfast set up was a farce - all the tables crambed together and terrible food. I travel a lot and this was one of the worst hotels I have stayed in. I hope others have better luck there.

    Very Nice

    from

    We stayed here on 5th November. We booked a standard double through Active Hotels and paid only 69 including breakfast.

    We were allocated a room with a Jacquzi on arrival which was a nice bonus. Although our room was very traditional in decoration it was very clean and comfortable. My only complaint is that the bed could have done with a new mattress.

    Overall, we were very pleased with our room and the service we received and would definitly return.

    Never Again!

    from

    Thoroughly disappointing! There is nothing nice about this hotel. My wife and I stayed here for one night in August 2005 and it was the worst hotel experience we have ever had. Firstly we were met by a very apathetic receptionist who made no effort to make us feel welcome. We then made our way to our room which was hideously decorated with a very distasteful mix and match of colours, floral patterns, stripes etc (very different from the pictures they use to advertise their rooms). We had specifically requested a non-smoking room but on entering the room we were met with a strong smell of cigarettes and there was an ash tray in there so it obviously was a smoking room - we were given no apology or explanation for this. The mattress was unbeleivably uncomfortable and neither of us slept well at all. The carvery ran out of food an hour before the last seating and the restuarant staff were more concerned about clearing the restaurant so they could finish their shift than looking after their guests who were trying to eat. We had filthy glasses and crockery and had to ask for some water 4 times before it arrived, by which time we had practically finished our meal. Don't be fooled by the photo's of the Tudor building they use to advertise thier hotel - the majority of the hotel is in a really ugly purpose built block with absolutely no charm or character. For what you pay you would expect a considerably higher standard of service and quality. We couldn't wait to get out of there and we will certainly never return!

    Lovely hotel what are you all on about???

    from

    I am rather confused by the comments above, I often stay at the Royal Court Hotel and find the reception desk very helpful, the service always very good and my bedroom of an exceptable standard. I have stayed over weekends here and it can get very busy, but I have to say no more than any other Hotel on a weekend that I have stayed in.

    If you want peace and quiet in any hotel you should book maybe a Hotel without large conferencing facilities!!! this would normally get you out of having lots of people around and would certainly reduce the noise level.

    Overall a good hotel, I have attended many conferences there and I have had no problems with the Hotel, I would recommend it..!!!!

    Hopeless

    from

    This hotel hosts a lot of large weddings and also innumerable coach parties. This means that large numbers of people often arrive at the hotel simultaneously and unfortunately the staff just can't cope. The result is chaos and getting any kind of service is virtually impossible. In my experience, this happens a lot.

    In need of refurbishment

    from

    We stayed here overnight in July 2004, having booked an 'executive' double. We were not made welcome by reception and had difficulty finding our room, a member of staff ignored our request for directions. Our room was disappointing, certainly not executive standard, it was old-fashioned and done out in mismatching florals and stripes. The hotel itself was showing signs of wear and tear, e.g. holes in stair carpet, worn and ripped furnishings in the bar. There was a decent carvery in the evening, but the breakfast buffet was unappetising with cheap and nasty economy sausages. The hotel was particularly busy with two weddings, and there was no emphasis on customer care, it clearly makes its money from weddings and parties, and does not feel the need to look after other guests. I would not stay here again, even if my stay was free.

    Very disappointed!!!

    from

    I was very disappointed. Having being bought up in Coventry The Royal Court Hotel had always been regarded as one of the nicer hotels in Coventry. However, after staying there in February 2004 I was very disappointed. From outside the hotel looks lovely. I had booked a family room, requesting a room with a double bed and two singles. On arrival we were given a twin room with two put-you-up style beds for our two children in the main part of the hotel. After requesting a room with a double bed we were given a family room in a deserted part of the hotel above the bar. The room certainly hadn't been cleaned recently, the carpet was filthy. The bathroom was very old and grimy. It looked and felt as if someone had stayed there before us and the hotel hadn't cleaned up before our arrival. Outside our room several empty beer glasses lay on the floor and although we moved them for safety reasons, they were still there the next morning. The staff were very efficient and the hotel could be lovely if it were refurbished. I won't be staying there again though.
