Recent guest reviews

Just a one night stay - at £56 including breakfast for the two of us was excellent value - the room number 301 on the third floor at the rear of the hotel was in excellent condition throughout. WiFi worked reasonably well in the room but occasionally cut out. Would recommend this hotel for a short stay in the area. WiFi in the public areas was excellent and free. Breakfast was very good with a good choice of hot and continental.

As usual we were not disappointed. Stayed for three nights. The room was spotlessly clean with good quality bedding and towels. Breakfast was much improved with lots of variety which was all very good. I would definitely recommend this hotel. I noticed a new steakhouse just opened right outside the hotel, a big plus. The hotel is easily accessible from the main road. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. You won’t be disappointed

Arrived late on Sunday night, and the car park was just a sheet of ice. Very tricky walking to reception. We had already had a main meal mid day so just wanted a snck which they served well and suited us fine. The room was a standard H Inn room, comfortable bed, Very quiet apart from heating/a.c. Room / bathroom could have been cleaner. Breakfast buffet was ok, but the hot selection was limited, only 4 hot items. Apart from that staff were friendly and helpful,

Went there due to a last minute travel change. Did not expect anything but an average small town holiday inn. And wow was I blown away. Fantastic design of the lobby and restaurant area. Feels like a modern boutique hotel. Rooms newly done, squeaky clean with a nice Tchibo coffee machine. Breakfast well above average and staff very professional and friendly. I will definitely return and can highly recommend

Had a lovely weekend here with my friend Natalie and Jamie, the food was delicious and healthy pickup bags to take home was a great idea staff members Debbie, Ben at reception were very helpful and friendly. We even had snow even though it was only a inch it looked nice. Bit to far from the town bus was ok but not every hour so we had taxis, would stay again Thank you all Bev & Natalie..

I have the pleasure of 4 nights at the Kettering Holiday Inn Express. I say pleasure but it really is pretty poor all round. Ripped carpets, horrendous ironing facilities that ruined my shirt and furniture that even Argos wouldn’t sell. Admittedly this would do as long as you have no expectations and just need a bed for the night. However, expect broken lights, chips, stains etc. Staff were friendly and the noise was fairly minimal for being so close to the road. You can hear other rooms quite clearly though. If you can fork out the extra, I can recommend basically anywhere else. No wonder Airbnb (and other similar businesses) are doing so well when the hotel industry think this is what people want. This hotel survives on a captive audience from the local business park.

As always I wasn’t disappointed with the holiday inn express, always great staff, lovely rooms and very nice breakfast. Brilliant value for money, I’d highly recommend. We didn’t explore the area as we were here for a funeral but on our travels it looked like there was ample to do locally

Good clean rooms, wide choice for breakfast so you can get a good start to the working day. Spent three days during December's snow but NO effort by the staff to clear any snow around the building footpaths right up to the main door. Surely some management responsibility there?

Whilst it’s fair to say it’s a budget hotel and there’s a card in the room to say if there is anything you may need contact reception - we did not for one night stop over - booked by our error - the room was basic and the curtains on our room were sadly marked as was the carpet - Breakfast choice was basic and no one ascertained if there was anything we may require . Situated on the edge of a industrial estate and development being carried out will restrict the views of the landscape shortly .

We had been to the NEC for the Motor Home exhibition, not to buy one as we already have a Mercedes Hymer and are quite happy with it, it was just to see if there were any new innovations that would make life easier. Any way back to the hotel, all in all a very nice hotel, but I did have to inform the reception that the toilet seat assembly was very loose and moving about, and later I had to report that the shower was leaking, but nothing major, but I must admit I thought that the toilet seat would have been noticed earlier ?. The room (204) was perfect, the staff were very friendly, the bar was a little sparse on the range of drinks stocked, but adequate. The breakfast was generally English, but there was croissants and various jams etc. We would hope that we could make it back here for other visit.
