In February 2018 I found myself signed off from work, suffering with depression and anxiety and unable to get out of bed. A month in, I found the smallest bit of energy to put my gym gear on and go to The Warwickshire and it was this moment that changed my life. I had such a strong support network of friends including the instructors and other members. They genuinely cared about my wellbeing, were always there to talk to, they made me laugh and for that hour or 2 each day I felt like “the old me” again and I would walk away thinking “I’ve got this”. During a time that was so dark, I now look back at each pat on the back, thumbs up, cuddle and laugh with such fond memories and wonder where I would be without my gym friends. Within 2 weeks of getting back to The Warwickshire, I had halved my anti-depressant dosage as being at the gym was the best form of medicine for me. I have now completely changed my routine and go the gym every morning because it puts me in the right mindset for the day ahead. For me, it’s not just about the facilities – what makes The Warwickshire so special is the people.
I have been asked by all the players who attended the Golf Day to pass on their thanks to you and your team for providing a grand day. The comments that came back to me were very complimentary. “The course was in superb condition and was a good test for all handicaps”. “It was a really good day and the course looked after us from start to finish. Food was excellent”. “Had a thoroughly enjoyable day and would like to play at The Warwickshire again”. From my side, thank you for making the booking and the planning of the day so easy. With not being there on the day I was anxious that there were no problems, and there were none, and that the day ran smoothly. Kind regards.
They think it’s all over. It is now! Well for my Captain’s Away Day at The Warwickshire that is! Everybody throughly enjoyed the day and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the way things went. A big THANK YOU to you both for the courtesy and professionalism in dealing with my queries throughout the preceding months, and also to the staff at the Warwickshire on the day who couldn’t have been more helpful in making my day run smoothly. We also all thought the standard of the food was excellent. I would certainly recommend 'The Warwickshire' to any Society or Club Captains I speak to.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help with the wedding - you were great! We had the most amazing time and so did our guests. The food was fab and The Warwickshire was the perfect venue for our wedding. The team who looked after us on the night were all great. The lady on Reception was lovely and really helpful in the morning when we were checking out! Rooms lovely, breakfast was great and so nice to have the area reserved for all my family to have breakfast together after our big day. Again a massive thank you to you and all at the Warwickshire!

After being diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer at the age of 24, I realised that my life was going to change forever. I was given a treatment plan of 8 rounds of intravenous chemotherapy, major surgery and 20 rounds of radiotherapy before I would return to my normal life (whatever that was). Through chemo I put on around 3 stone, I lost all my hair and loss muscle mass. The weight gain worked in my favour, as chemotherapy, although gruelling at times, was relatively easy for me, unlike most. When chemo was over, I chose to join the Warwickshire and with the help of the lovely staff (Cameron and Nera in particular), I have managed to lose 2 ½ stone since February. This wonderful club, full of wonderful people and inspiring stories has given me the strength and positivity to reach my goals in all aspects of my life. After going through something so awful, it’s amazing to have people around you regularly that are there to support you, guide you and push you forward. And so, over a year since my diagnosis, I am free from cancer, getting married and doing the things that I loved to do again. My confidence has come back, and I am so grateful! Thank you so much guys!
At last - a hotel I actually want to stay in! As a regular traveller, away from home 3 - 4 days a week, I get very tired with the mediocrity and blandness of most hotels. The Warwickshire is probably my perfect hotel - nice rooms, comfy beds, decent hairdryers, the most amazing gym and spa. The food is good with a menu that changes daily and includes fresh and healthy food options. I don't play golf, but enjoy being able to walk the grounds for exercise in the summer evenings. All in all a great place to stay, with lovely staff!
As a regular user of this hotel for business purposes I really cannot fault it. Attentive polite staff, fantastic rooms and a great pool and spa to relax in after a busy day. The gym is well equipped and popular. There is a nice bar and large terrace overlooking the golf course (which I have not managed to use yet but must find time to do so) to socialise and take in the splendid scenery. The food is always excellent with a good choice on the menu.
I am a regular guest at the Warwickshire and would not stay anywhere else in the area. The employees are consistently very helpful, courteous and welcoming and always go out of their way to make sure my stay is as pleasant as can be. The location is great, central enough to get in and out of town quickly but secluded at the same time. The rooms are luxurious and spacious and the beds extremely comfortable. There is an extensive menu at the restaurant with a wide variety of choices. The gym and spa facilities are some of the best I've seen in a hotel with everything you need. Can't recommend the Warwickshire enough.
From start to finish of our golf day we were looked after. We book a day every year and this year’s event at The Warwickshire was one of our best. The team at the club made the event as well as the two great golf courses.

7 years ago I was 13 stone and not doing any sport. I had done some road running many years ago but not to any standard. My blood pressure went off the chart and I was told by the doctor to join a gym, hence I joined the Warwickshire. I spent a year doing treadmill and cross training 3 or 4 times a week and then decided to run the Kenilworth Half Marathon. I did a reasonable time of 1:36 so also joined Kenilworth Runners. I’ve worked out 6 times a week since then, either at running club or the Warwickshire (where I now do all my speed reps on the treadmill). The outcome? I am now 10 stone, this year I was selected to run for England at marathon over 65 level (I am 68) and I won the V65 British Championships Gold Medal at the Chester Marathon.
