We booked 3 double rooms at the Peacock Hotel and we were lucky enough to be upgraded with one of them. We arrived Good Friday afternoon and check in was fast, friendly and efficient. The upgraded room 204 was large and clean with lots of storage. Bedding was good quality and there were lovely, thick, white towels. The bathroom contained a large bath with a seperate shower cubicle. Lots of shampoo, shower gel etc. Because the room was so large the heater didn't really do a suffient job. A call to Reception and a young lady immediately bought us a second heater. Our family got together to catch up on news and there was plenty of room for all 6 of us to sit around chatting. The other 2 doubles were a good size, next door to each other with a few steps from the main hotel. One of the rooms was lovely and warm, the other freezing! A second heater was requested and although it was in the room when they went back, the heater hadn't been switched on, so the room was still cold!
There is definitely an Indian influence with decor and ornaments. We were going to eat at the Restaurant within the hotel but the menu was quite limited. I am not an adventurous eater and there was no Chicken Korma! There were quite a number of people in there as we walked past so it goes to show that the food is good.
We ate a a pub across the road and it was typical 'pub grub'.
Kenilworth was a nice, friendly place with some shops open, even on Good Friday.
The breakfast was good. Freshly cooked to order, the young lady even made me 'real' porridge! A buffet of cereals, cheeses, juices, toast, yoghurts etc.
If we had to visit this area again I would have no hesitation in booking the 'Peacock Hotel'.
PS. The upgraded room had 32 lights/bulbs! Beautifully bright with 2 gorgeous crystal chandeliers.
