More about your stay

We hope you have a very comfortable trip in our newly restored, historic properties right in the heart of historic Coventry. The properties have been carefully restored and are now owned by Historic Coventry Trust, and operated by No Ordinary Hospitality Management, who also operate Coombe Abbey Hotel just outside the city.

Housekeeping

For your comfort, Coombe Abbey Hotel will service your property prior to arrival and every 7 days after if you’re stay exceeds a week.

Heating is controlled by Nest thermostats – simply rotate the dial to choose the required temperature.
You can also control most of the individual radiator thermostats to give further control.
