During our weekend in Coventry, we stayed at a lovely hotel...Coombe Abbey Hotel.
Build around the shell of a 12th century Cistercian monasery, Coombe Abbey was renovated as a hotel in 1995, with the original architectural features restored to their former glory.
Situated in the Coventry countryside, it was a peaceful retreat after a day of 10K running and sightseeing. Actually, it was peaceful AFTER we moved rooms due to the wedding reception that was located directly underneath our room...dancing to every 1980's disco song ever recorded. Burn, baby burn.
Sadly, no interior photos allowed (what gives?) but the hotel was equally beautiful inside as well. A special treat was breakfast in the solarium.
