Accomodation close to Ricoh Stadium?
Save

Hi, We're in Covent on the night of June 26th, for a concert at the Ricoh Stadium.

Any suggestions on hotels / apartments either nearby or within a sensible taxi ride?

Also, names of good places to eat ?

Thanks in advance

I did a search on "Hotels near Ricoh Arena Coventry" and it shows a Double Tree by Hilton right next to the arena.

https://www.hilton.com/en/hotels/cvthndi-doubletree-coventry/

Note it looks like it is now called the Coventry Building Society Arena.

Assuming that the concert has been announced for a while any accommodation very close to the arena will either be completely full or very expensive. I think I would be looking more towards the centre of Coventry and planning taxi these and back.

There is also an Arena Shopping Park right next to the "Ricoh Arena" with a few places to eat

There is a Novotel near M6 Junction 3 which is about 2 miles to the concert venue. Also a Premier Inn [Nuneaton/Coventry] less than 4 miles distant and another at Coventry Road, Hinckley which is under 9 miles away. [If you stay there make sure your driver doesn't travel via M69/ M6 to the venue as that is a few minutes quicker but half as far again.

Not within walking distance, but only a couple of miles away, is the Old Hall hotel, in Keresley. Gets very good reviews. Or the Royal Court, which gets very mixed reviews, but may be cheaper. In the City Centre the Telegraph Hotel is the best, then the Ramada.

By the way, if you are going to see Rammstein I an very envious! Love them, but we are on holiday.

Thanks.. and Yes, we managed to get tickets for Rammstein!!

We found accomodation near the NEC so we'll get a taxi or Uber.

Thanks to all, for some reason the name Ricoh keeps appearing rather than Coventry Building Society!? Either way, we got sorted and opted for a hotel near to NEC ( (£106 for 2 double rooms) and will use a taxi/Uber each way. Less than half the price of hotels closer to the stadium!

The Stadium was called the Ricoh for years, being sponsored by the copier company, and had a big sign on top you could see for miles. It changed at the start of this football season to the Coventry Building Society Arena, but it has taken a while for the new name to catch on, and for the ticket sites etc to update. "The CBS" is a shorter version you might hear.

Hope you enjoy Rammstein . We saw them a few years ago, and it was a hell if a show!
