Good valuePosted Apr 17, 2010
The hotel is a bit frayed around the edges and limited facilities (no WiFi, no remotes on TV's) but as value for money, ABSOLUTELY NO COMPLAINTS. Hotel faciities and plenty of parking, all in a nice accessible village, at a lower cost than many B&B's in this area. Breakfast is a bit on the high side so either go for room only or agree a good rate in advance if you want breakfast.

The poor service here added to the run-down ambiance of this placePosted Oct 4, 2009 on Hotels.com
Being formerly from Coventry, I was looking forward to going to stay in Allesley but I should have been alerted by the seemingly cheap deal I was getting. The Allesley Hotel is desperately in need of some investment to bring it in to the new century. The reception area smelt musty and my room was badly in need of updating. The bathroom was like something out of the 80's and the cracked shower tray topped it off. As a solo female traveller I generally order room service, which here was limited especially for a vegetarian. Although the hotel was seemingly empty, I waited over for an hour for a pizza. It arrived soon after I chased up reception and resembled a cheap Tesco frozen pizza. A disappointing stay which I will not repeat.

TIRED AND IN NEED OF REFURBISHMENTPosted Sep 7, 2009 on Hotels.com
On leaving the reception area and walking towards our allocated room my immediate impression was of a hotel in need of refurbishment. On entering the room the first thing you saw was a piece of black gaffer tape covering the join in the carpet in the middle of the room. This tape did not cover the full extent of the carpet joint which was badly thread bare and in an appalling state. Black mildew was evident on the ceiling and yellow water staines on the polestyrene roof panels were quite off putting. The room was initially cold with the window being fully open obviously in an attempt to air the room from the damp smell within. The en-suite was also in need of repair with again black mildew marks on all walls. The following morning on checking that nothing had been left behind by my children I found five empty Fosters lager cans in the clothing drawers left by previous occupants. Carpet did not appear to have been hoovered although the bed linen was checked and was fresh. The double bed and two single beds of the family room were obviously in need of replacement as they were very soft and tired. Due to the lateness of our arrival at the hotel and early departure I did not complain at the time but did mention to reception staff that the room had not been prepared thoroughly. I would not return to this hotel and was very disappointed with it. To sum up my 10 year old son remarked 'Its not very nice here Dad I hope the next hotel is better''.

Not the easiest place to findPosted May 26, 2009 on Hotels.com
The hotel was so difficult to find and once we arrived an hour later which was supposed to be a 15 minute journey. The hotel receptionist was new so didnt have a clue where our room was located and had to go and find it first. For a family of four we were given a room with three single beds, when we had paid for a family room. The hotel smelled of dampness, I wish I had taken more notice of the reviews before booking the hotel. We then requested a wake up call, which never happened. Please take note of the reviews and do not book unless you want to be disappointed!

Poor show for EasterPosted Apr 15, 2009 on Hotels.com
Poor show - during our family Easter break.. we arrived late afternoon... our room wasn't even ready, we had to sit around for nearly 40mins before we could enter our room.... no remote for tv and staff couldn't locate another during our 2 day stay. Had family room, 1 double n 2 singles but son had to sleep on Z bed, without proper bedding.. had to ask for quilt. 2 bulbs not working, inc bedside lamps.... mugs in room were dirty with lipstick from previous customers!!!! Only 1 member of staff available, so they couldn't leave their desk!!! Restaurant/bar closed or empty - had to get Chinese takeaway. Very disappointed.

Great location, great value for UKPosted Mar 11, 2009 on Hotels.com
If your attending any events at the NEC and the hotels in and around the NEC are just too expensive, try the Allesley. Super convenient, a bus every 30 minutes right to the NEC and back from right in front of the Hotel..(quick 15 minute ride)Quaint Pubs and local restaurants close by....

Good value for moneyPosted Feb 23, 2009 on Hotels.com
Didn't know what I was going to get with the Allesley hotel. I turned out to be a pleasant surprise, all the staff where really helpfull and the breakfast was spot on. For the price I could not complain. I will use the hotel again.

Cheap and cheerfulPosted Feb 18, 2009 on Hotels.com
The allesley hotel is fine for a cheap room for the night with no frills. It was clean, complimentary shower gels , tea and coffee making facilities etc. Have never ate in the restaurant. If you are looking for a cheap stay in a hotel for one or two nights then this is fine.

Never Again whilst under this ownerPosted Oct 17, 2008 on Hotels.com
I stayed here regulary 30 years ago. It was the one of if not the best Hotel in the Midlands area at that time. It was a major disappointment almost a disbelief to see it today. To give it the best report I can - it's functionable'. The whole paints has hardly changed in 30 years, decor, furniture (bathrooms have never changed for sure). Sad to see really, I understand it's for sale so there is hope.
