Hotel | "Acacia Guest House"

A short walk from the rail station, Acacia Guest House, run by Martin and Marie, was our home for two nights as we stayed in Coventry. Upon arrival, Martin gave us a key to the front door and our bedroom door, asked us whether we wanted a wake-up call and what time we wanted breakfast. After making our payment, we were ushered into our en suite non-smoking room.Both the bedroom and the bathroom were truly sparkling clean. After a long day of travelling, we were pleased to see the electric teapot, instant coffee, and instant tea ready for us.

We had an hour and a half to spare, the entrance was free, and my husband loves cars, so it was a no-brainer to spend the morning at the Coventry Transport Museum, just across the street from the Coventry Pool Meadow coach station.

Luggage Storage


We had a day of travelling to do, and we didn't want to be lugging around our backpacks wherever we went. Fortunately, we had seen the luggage lockers in the coach station as we arrived in Coventry, so we promptly went there and used a locker. Open an unused locker, put in your bags, close it, slip in the nonrefundable fee (GBP 1 for a small locker, GBP 2 for a big one), and turn the key. Users are allowed to keep their bags there for 24 hours.

The Coventry coach station is on Pool Meadow.
