Booked the hotel for a girly baby shower overnight spa and private dinner. The hotel manager was great and agreed to move our rooms so we could be closer to each other. The spa was great, rooms were nice and clean. We had a private dining area and the waiters were attentive and the food Was also top notch. Would recommend
Location was perfect for us - close to the motorway. The hotel is looking old and in need of refreshing. The room was ok, beds very soft and bouncy - no support. The bathroom had been refurbished with a new shower, but water came out on to the floor. We were only there one night and didn't eat at the hotel. Reception was quick and efficient, and the hotel has free parking and wifi. We didn't use the heating/aircon system.
Stayed here for one night for business before heading off to silverstone, service was good, rooms were comfortable, really nice breakfast, there was a wedding on and the wait on the food was long but we didnt mind as we popped down to the pub down the road, thanks again
This pictorial hotel is placed rather in the city suburb - but it's a big benefit in case you have at least a half an hour for walking nearby along picturesque river and watching a lot of different birds: swans, gooses, ducks... And a lot of funny rabbits around :) Hotel's restaurant has a very nice offer - kids eat free.
Stopped at the hotel after the 6th leg of our 200 mile charity walk. Staff were friendly and helpful. Had a good night's sleep in the comfy beds. In the morning had a tasty breakfast and there was plenty of choice. If we are back in the area would stop here again. Thanks to the hotel for all their help and support
Room was large, shower room was exceptional. New and worked well. However the non-aircon was a let down. There were no wifi instructions in the room. The phone did not work and we found a hole where the jack should have plugged in. Who needs a room phone in 2017 - well to report things like the air-conditioning and the lack of ice machines. There was an empty ice bucket so I took that down and they were happy to fill it at the bar. When I asked the receptionist about the wifi she started explaining to me when I noticed the instructions and I kid you not, on the floor under my feet, at the reception. It was easy, free and worked very well. About the aircon however, she said it was merely a fan. It was a big, old, noisy contraption more of a nuisance than it was worth. Shame they did not replace that when they upgraded the bathroom. The two double beds were good, clean, very comfortable and fairly new. The breakfast was excellent if not a bit pricey. I would never come in as a day guest and pay £14 something, for a breakfast, no matter how good. Also they charged me £4 extra, for two espressos. The regular coffee is filter (very 70's) or cafetiere (very 80's). I'll bet the man serving the tables with the filter coffee would not drink one of those. If you step out of the Hotel and branch right for about 50 yards you can follow a path which lead up an incline to a raised section - probably a flood defence - which goes on for a few hundred yards along a scenic river route. It may be a sanctuary of sorts with geese, swans, and ducks and it is a lovely walk. The Hotel, as far as I could see was nowhere near any shops, bars, or loud entertainment. This suited us just fine and it was a very peaceful 24 hours.
Part of the hotel was renovated a few years ago but other sections are quite dated. Carpet needs replacing and rooms need upgrades. Some members of our group complained of the air conditioning not working properly and others mentioned that regulating the water temperature in the shower was a challenge.Overall though the place was fairly clean and the staff went out of their way to be helpful. Located near the main highway was convenient and a short drive to both Corby and Weldon.Food was pretty good for a hotel for both breakfast and our buffet lunch and dinner. Rates were good for the area. Even though they are in the older section of the hotel I would recommend the ground floor rooms because the elevator was slow and my room stayed nice and cool plus the shower temp worked perfectly.
Spent a night here and was booked into a executive room using my IHG points. Check in was fine with complimentary bottled water and kitkat. The room is large with a large sitting area and the bathroom is new with a large walk in shower. However that's about it for the positives on the room. The bed is soft and obviously well worn and the furniture is dated and old, with stained easy chairs. Like other reviewers the real issue we had was the AC was both very noisy and didn't blow out cold air, so the night was hot and uncomfortable. There is an iron and tea/coffee making facilities in the room. A fridge which wasn't working. We didn't visit the restaurant but there is room service and you can order breakfast in your room. I did speak to the front desk and was told there is a programme for renovation and this will be addressed. I'm not sure what the issue is with the AC but i suggest as so many people are bringing this up they should look into this before the planned upgrade starts. There is plenty of free parking on site. There is free wi-fi available. Not sure I would stay here again until they sort out the renovation work.
Stopped here with work. Hotel is easy to find and has a large carpark. Receptionist was very welcoming, hotel is spacious. We had an executive room which was very well appointed, clean and comfortable. Good selection of pillows from firm to soft. Little extras made the stay more impressive, toothpaste and water in the rooms in addition to the usual soap etc. Shower had an 'eco' function which ive not encountered before ( & promptly ignored ). The aircon unit was abit noisy in the room though and my complimentary kitkat melted! Restaurant was abit pricey £15 for most items but lots of places nearby to eat. Breakfast buffet was as you'd expect from a large hotel.
Pleased to be offered a free upgrade to an Exec room when I checked in, but the window wouldn't close properly so asked to move to another room, which was actually larger. Both rooms looked dated, with wallpaper peeling off in the first. Neither had air - con, but a noisy heater / cooling fan on the wall which wasn't effective. The weather wasn't particularly hot when I stayed, but the room was hot and stuffy and the hotel has busy roads on 2 sides, so it was difficult to sleep. The bar restaurant was over priced with a limited range of beers, so visited the Britannia pub just 400m away where there was a nice atmosphere, and good food at approx. half the price. Staff at Holiday Inn helpful, but I won't be visiting again.
