The view over the river overlooking the rowing club.
Recognised as a frequent visitor. Given choice of room. Breakfast coffee is grim.
The hotel bed was the most comfortable bed of any hotel we have stayed in recently.Although we arrived quite late in the evening the reception staff were very welcoming.This was our second stay at this hotel.
Comfortable and Spacious Room. Helpful and polite staff. Plus, the location by the river.
great location, quiet rooms, polite staff, great decor
the location for the town etc plus riverside walks the pool was too small and too deep and jacuzzi did't work, so no spa and no relax
A very pleasent wedding reception Vegetables with main course,all of them,except roast potatoes,were very undercooked.
Central location on riverfront, very traditional long established local hotel,clean and comfortable . Quirky. Nice breakfast. Rooms on small side , but comfortable .
Clean room,comfortable bed, friendly staff. no, but I was surprised at the lack of minibar in the room
Everything That the rooms were modern when the rest of hotel was boutique.
Was on a Conference
Needs to be updated but overall ok, great location Old needs updating
Staff on arrival extremely helpful. Very good atmosphere, enjoyable stay, even if only for one night! Nothing bad to say about any aspect of our booking or stay at the Hotel.
Very friendly and helpful staff. N/A
It is just valu for the price. The room was rather nice and neat, but it was not sound-proof at all. We couldn't get sleep due to noises from hall way. The location is not for trip with family or leisure purpose, since it is located in the middle of industrial area. But the staff, facility, free breakfast were fine. very noisy at night. no facility for fax and print.(we asked to print our boarding tickets, but decliend.)
Aircon in room didn't work
Nice bed and design of the room, perfect internet access No possibility to open the window (for me personally very bad, because I am pregnant and all the furniture, carpets etc. were new and still evaporating (toxic?) vapos; air condition in the entrance hall and breakfast room were much too cold!!!!
The comfort of the room and the facilities. Very helpfull staff. Large "party" in the bar area which closed the restaurnat at 6.30pm. Children and adults running up and down the 2nd floor rooms passage way some couple of hours after mid-night which meant sleep was not possible until after 2pm.
Clean modern hotel. Very comfortable Queen sized bed Plenty of room in the shower. Non found
Very handy for purpose of visit to Corby. Staff very friendly. Will consider staying infuture when in the area. Buffet breakfast was good although a bit confusing trying to find everything that was wanted.
very professional and courteous
was a business overnight stay as working in the area. Excellent value especially as breakfast free.Will be booking again next week
excellent high standards throughout inc very good real ale on draught - look forward to the next visit could do to have the heating on in the room
The food and the service were excellent escpeciaaly the evening meal. No telephone in the room and the fact that you had to walok outside to get to the restaurant.
Friendliness of staff, excellent food both at dinner and breakfast
I only stayed one night for business.purposes but it was greta
The guy on reception was very helpful, this place does exactly what it says on the tin. albeit when i saw 5 stars AA i should have read a little further.
Excellent value for money at gbp 25,00 per night Would not consider paying full price of gbp 65,00 per night for the same room Room was small and cramped tv in the room did not work for 2 of the 4 nights that I stayed in the hotel - no compensation offered.
I was impressed by the exceptionally friendly disposure of the staff - especially one very helpful lady in the restuarant.
Breakfast. Anaemic sausages!
All the staff we met were welcoming and considerate.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very good value for money. Good restaurant with a good selection of wines. Nice atmosphere everywhere. Confusing breakfast pricing system. Uncomfortable ricketty child cot.
Friendly Staff Had to send my Dinner back on Sunday,uncooked dissapointing after a long journey
No smoking rooms and Hard access to smoking areas
the spa facilities were lovely, great way to relax
convenient for a family reunion poor communication between staff, instructions not passed on
The hotel was very convenient for a meeting we had arranged. It offered a good size, comfortable room at a reasonable price. Breakfast was also very good.
Breakfast Yes several things:1) the fact that I rang the hotel to enquire about a reservation and a particular rate and was told it did not exist. I have since learnt it did. I booked through late rooms as their rates were cheaper!. 2) I had a serious complaint about the rate and the room and I am still waiting for the hotel manager to call me .................
Leaving Inefficient staff, poor cleanliness of crockery, poor quality of food
Hardly relevant, I did no more than sleep there! Breakfast start time of 8am was too late for the time I needed to leave - hence no breakfast.
comfy bed! Very tired tatty hotel £30 a night was enough to pay. Poor parking facilities and if car not removed from road by 0900 parking ticket
The price for bed & breakfast for a room for 2 people was very good. The bed was very comfortable It needs a bit of TLC to improve the carpets, paintwork etc
The staff I met were very professional and friendly. The hotel is spacious and good value for money. It needs a lot of minor refurbishment and drainage needs upgrading - noisy maceerator
good evening meal poor breakfast
the room need a good clean there was no plug in the sink to much furnture in room chaos at breakfast
friendly staff and easy to find public parking means on street parking cold noisy
Friendly staff. Good value for money. Relaxed atmosphere. Hotel bar/lounge in process of being redecorated. Beautiful victorian building. Lovely gardens to enjoy in summer. Room decor could be better. For example, exposed wires running along ceiling to smoke alarm. Peeling paper. Curtain hooks missing. Poor reception on tv.
Cheap, nice staff but poor quality accommodation Very cold room, dirty broken furniture and "dodgy" wiring.
We couldnt find any fault at all with either the hotel or the staff who were exellent which is why we booked your hotel at kettering Cannot find any bad points
i didnt like the fact that i left my i phone charger in the room to discover house keeping staff have taken it!!!very annoyed
Rooms very comfortable and spacious. Very quiet, no noise heard from the rooms next door. Breakfast was ok....could maybe have done with a little bit more choice; maybe more fruit or pastries. What we had was good though.
Excellent hote, very new and staff very friendly. The rooms were more than adequate although the hotel was tricky to get too off the roundabout.
Check in was excellent... Active hotels hadn't sent booking through when we rang active hotels the person dealing with was useless. The receptionist at Holiday Inn was great she really put things right. Breakfast has improved now at holiday inn express with scambled egg and bacon the problem on three days the egg was gone the girl was very very slow to react and needed telling so there was a delay because she had to go and cook it!!! 4 times they ran out of spoons!! One of the drink despensers for the orange juice was giving out very weak water all week! And probably still is! An otherwise brilliant hotel spoiled by lack of attention to detail
The Staff were efficient and friendly The toaster was faulty at breakfast but other than that I could not fault the service.
The room was very nice and ready to sleep straight away. There should be a microwave available for heating up of baby food etc..!!
Uncomfortable bed - kept rolling into middle of bed
Everything was excellent from start to finish ! When I arrived there was no record of my booking (booked online). I had printed out my confirmation - quickly dealt with, staff apologetic, a room quickly found for me. Luckily they were not fully booked!
The executive suites were clean Very poor value for money, small rooms
Comfortable rooms. On-line you do not have guest reviews.
Accommadation was good, especially as there was a bath. We couldn't find the hotel,it was poorly signposted, no indication that it was a hotel, and we spent about half an hour driving around to try and find the hotel part of the complex.
The food in the Brasserie was the best food we have eaten out in 20 years and we eat out a lot. Outward appearance and approach to Hotel was disappointing.
Room was very spacious and comfy and staff very welcoming and polite. Restaurant overlooked the lake and food was delicious and good value. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Shower was a little tempremental at times
was able to stay on site whilst attending a wedding. I found the room quite expensive
Free WIFI connections - excellent signal throughout the hotel
We stayed in a very clean, spacious room with a large comfortable bed. The hotel had a good choice of breakfast menu. Directions to the hotel on the Wyboston site could be clearer. Difficult to locate hotel at night.
Nice place, equipment and service. No direction signs out and insite at all !
My friend and i enjoyed our stay at the hotel - it was clean and warm and the barn conversion added an extra special element to our stay. It definately served our purpose and we will be staying here again later in December 2010. The home cooked breakfast in the morning was great too and set us both up for the day. Thank you!
clean, comfotable, good location and good breakfast and value for money.
A fantastic hotel in a very quiet location. Could not find any faults
Clean modern facilities in good order The heating struggled to cope on what was admittedly the coldest night of the year, particularly the unheated en-suite and corridors.
Excellent value, very nice room and good breakfast. None
The rooms (we booked 2) were lovely. The staff were very friendly with good advice about the local area and the breakfast was great and plentiful. The area was lovely and it was so peaceful and quiet you didn't feel like others were staying. The pub nearby was nice as well.
Early check in was really good.
The rooms were so lovely. Also on arrival we were made so welcome and informed of all facilities.
A warm, clean room. Excelent breakfast. Polite staff/owners. Internet had failed on the night I stayed. Mobile phone coverage is bad. (Neither of these were the fault of the hotel)
It was a little tired and tatty and I would not have paid the full £100 per night for the room we had (at half price as it was Friday night it was OK). The welcome was luke warm.
friendly staff, room cleaned OK. Toilet seat needs renewing. Not nice. Otherwise, room good.
The attitude of the staff was excellent and the manager quite exceptional.
The food was very nice and well presented. Room were large by British standards. We enjoyed the bar and Boddingtons on tap.
The room was clean and comfortable.
The receptionist, Linda, was very welcoming. She took me to the bar, rather than giving me directions. She was most helpful with any queries. N/A
the staff were courteous and we were made to feel very welcome nothing
the shower had no water pressure and when we asked why we were told that the room had been refurbed and they were having trouble with the pressure. If this was the case, why were we given that room to start with?
The hotel was very nice, room was comfortable The price of drinks(£9.00)sothern com and lemenade taken to room The price of breakfest to room(toast,orange and tea-£17.00!!!!!)
Room and surrounding areas are excellent even during their upgrade process. Ease of parking. Friendly staff. Drinks are reasonably priced. The breakfast was definitely not up to the expected standard, lacked freshness, and seemed to consist of what was left rather than being freshly cooked. This experience was repeated on on both days.
Comfortable bed and good towels. Good car parking. Room dreary (203) No tissues in superior room. Poor housekeeping--light bulb broken in dark entrance to room.Very slow service of meal in Bar.Public areas extremely tired.
The refurbished bedroom and bathroom were well appointed and comfortable. The public areas especially the bar area were badly in need of an update.
Very friendly staff, attentive and good mannered. Excellent service and quality of food in the restaurant. Nothing.
the price and friendly service
friendly lovely place
Bar menu, value for money Restaurant menu limited and expensive.
Well priced in a beautiful part of the country. Shower was defective and soaked me and the bathroom twice.
The hotel is in a lovely location and we all enjoyed our stay.
Loved the room, the freshly cooked breakfast and the helpful staff Unfortunately, freshly cooked breakfast means a very long wait if you get down to breakfast just after a party of 17. Ok if you are just having a break but no good if you have to be somewhere.
thep plumming was a bit noisey
Also, the T.V. was overall very good BUT I had trouble getting past the menu to watch the normal channels. I thought you had to go through the menu to watch the normal channels. It took me quite a while to figure out that I just had to press the number of the control to get the specific channels. But overall I was very happy. Thanks. A+++++++++++++++++
Handiness to the Town Centre. Clean rooms and staff very friendly and welcoming. My folks stayed in room 710 and it was very pleasant however in the evenings all we could smell was drains. It didnt disrupt our break however maybe something you should look into.
central location yet next to river view from room
Very convenient location. Good beers in the bar A small point but the toilet looked liked a lavatory brush had never been used on it. Bathroom generally looked a bit shabby. Mattress very soft.
Nice Modern bathroom Double walk-in shower. Flat screen TV Comfy Bed. Breakfast quite expensive at £14.99
Good location. Nice room. Efficient service Pricey breakfast. Only one pillow. Cold atmosphere in bar area.
Location The hotel booked the room for the wrong date and money was taken from our account even though we had a booking.com receipt. The money was returned. Because of the mix up we were upgraded to an executive room, in these rooms breakfasts are provided , we knew this as we have stayed in one before. We were disappointed and somewhat embarrassed when we went down for breakfast on the second morning to be told there was no breakfast although there was one for the first morning. Not a particularly enjoyable stay made worse by the noise from the adjoining room which kept us awake until the early hours and then woke us at 6 am. All in all a poor experience.
Location, Food and Helpful Staff Rooms were rather dated, some of the appliances needed replacing.
The owners were very welcoming on arrival and during our stay. All the staff were very pleasant. The food was of an excellent quality. There were no bad points
I like everything with this bed and breakfast. The owner is great. Very friendly - learns all the guests by name. The staff is friendly, hard working. The breakfast is excellent - they worry if you miss breakfast :) Clean rooms. Good heating and showers. Very cute village. I was there on Business but I would go there for vacation. The one thing I didn't like they fixed without me asking. When I first arrived the shower curtain hangers were cheap and if you weren't gentle with the curtain it would fall down. I was going to mention it but the next day the had replaced the hangers with better ones. I can only assume the housekeeping noticed it and changed it immediately! - Perfect
As an aviation enthusiast and appreciator of period architecture this was a superb experience. As a hotel stay, there are no negatives but you have to be mindful that this an active aerodrome site and therefore fairly remote. The surrounding area is pretty bleak, although this view may be influenced by the snowy weather during our stay. The nearest sizeable shopping location is Milton Keynes which is a 30 minutes or so drive.
Great location and terrific style in public rooms. Howerever my room - whilst comfortable - tiny tv though - was a bit like a travel lodge in layout and feel. Appreciated the table lamp which was definitely not travel lodge. Would go back but was looking forward to something a bit special and was disappointed.
Good quiet room very clean and comfortable, well laid out and larger than some far more expensive hotel rooms I have stayed in. Cost of drinks in bar and limited menu
Convenience and the cleanliness of the hotel
everything no complaints just the fact if they had been full i would have been greatly inconvenieced due to them not recieving the booking
Rooms near the railway line are noisy!
Too close to rail way, noise issues
Clean and comfortable - good heating controls in room - staff friendly and helpful Problem when booking in as the booking was recorded in my forename not surname. Breakfast options a bit sparse and basic
Good sevice and a good brekfast
An easy and stress free experience, easy parking and a tranqil location away from the traffic and husstle and busle of the town. Fortunately I had a mobile otherwise it would have been hard to find. It is behind a filling station.
Like most Holiday Inn expresses this one was clean and comfortable and perfect for arrive late, leave early business accommodation. Not a criticism but be aware that apart from the petrol station next door there is nothing else near this hotel so you will need to drive if you want to find a pub or restaurant.
The design of the rooms, especially incorporating a single door to the bathroom and wc - very ingenius. The hairdryer: to continually have to push a button for the hairdryer to work was very annoying, together with the electrical cord not being very long - trying to dry a 3 year old's hair was time consuming.
Just bstayed 1 night. The room was spacious and clean with pleasant decor. The bathroom beatifully clean and the shower perfect. Breakfast was included and excelent quality. Would definately stay again Nothing
Beautiful, comfortable bedrooms, a lovely hotel in general and beautiful setting. Very good staff.
excellent evening meal Staying in one of the cottage rooms there was little hot water in the evening and none in the morning, the staff did not really handle it well, basically saying the boiler was empty as a reason, I received £10.00 off my bill when I asked to speak to the manager but hot water is an absolute basic and the quality of the staff in dealing with it was not very efficient at all - a real shame.
Very friendly staff, excellent room, very comfortable Set menu didn't give much choice, and even if you only wanted one course, you had to pay for two.
The place, the old manor, and the welcome of the staff
Very nice atmosphere
Easy to find,good parking facilities and the size of the room was very nice. We thought there could have been some form of food available at 9pm on the day of arrival and the room could have been warmer. However it was a bitterly cold night.
the rooms are fantastic, bed was just so warm and comfortable, quilt is the best i have ever experienced in 24 years on the road, breakfast left a bit to be desired, asked for sausage, bacon and tomato and got just that 1 of each on a massive plate ?? next time will ask for 2 of each
Very generous sized rooms and excellent breakfast. Clearly an old converted manor house with great character.
1. Atmosphere was welcoming and comfortable right from the start when food was available at 9:00 pm when we arrived! 2. The staff were without excellent - approachable, friendly and helpful; 3. The accommodation was spacious, well appointed and comfortable. 4. In the Dining Room at breakfast and especially at Dinner were attentive but unobtrusive.5. The whole experience was first class.
Location easy to find good parking,breakfast was a buffet overall good value
Proximity to the Rockingham racetrack. That is the reason why I go there. Parking facility is large for my van and motorbike and staff is very helpful Room next to me was occupied by a very noisy couple of people.
the pool etc and rooms.
Excellent service good facilities friendly /helpful staff Booked on line so was not entitled to a refund when a colleague cancelled - I found this very disappointing as I had booked 3 Double rooms, and then overheard the receptionist tell another customer there were no Double rooms left? Very disappointed if my 3rd room had been reassigned then as a good will gesture Holiday Inn could have at least offered some vouchers to the value of the room - be fair. Also disappointed with the local taxi services £20 for a 7 mile 10 minute journey 1 way is unacceptable - sort out your local cabs
Hotel and staff very friendly and helpful, room excellent Restaurant very poor, Fawlty Towers' comes to mind, lets down the rest of teh hotel.
Ease of access, nice interior, calm & peaceful shower in rm 240 was not very good
expensive bar and snacks
The overall experience was very good No
We came up for a conference at Kettering over a weekend period and the hotel was very quiet. This was excellent for us - the staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are a little tired but comfortable, but I believe they are about to be refurbed. The gym facilities appeared very good but the access used by normal everyday members was the normal fire doors to a corridor in the hotel - which were left wide open, which I am sure in summer time it would be fine - but in the middle of winter was freezing and put us off using the facility due to the sheer coldness - maybe an entrance lobby could be made for this area - would maybe be a little more enviting.
The location was ideal as we had to be near the International Swimming Pool. Plenty of parking but did not get time to use spa facilities/restaurant. The room could be bought up to date e.g modern TV, furniture fittings etc. - though this did not spoil our overnight stay
Reason for booking hotel was it's convenience visiting relatives in Rushden. no, it serve it's purpose.
Room cleanliness and service
Clean and tidy Decor and bedding dated
Clean, comfortable accommodation. Would be nice if had proper restaurant for evening meal.
Room itself clean There was a smell in the room, which appeared to come from the water - you had to run the water for a period of time before using it. The hotel was basic, and after arriving late and hoping to get a meal, they had run out of food. There was a lot of noise from other guests in the early hours of the morning.
Clean and tidy, good selection of services, excellent and friendly staff. None
Close to main road / route.
Hotel very clean and tidy, reception staff polite and friendly No internet connection from my room, very frustrating as I'd had the same problem the night before in a different hotel. Not a lover of the continental breakfast.
Beautiful building and setting Hotel was rather cold in the evening
Great staff, good food and excellent historical environemnt Rooms were a little small and water temperature was too cold
Historical impressive building, in a countryside setting. Bedrooms had fantastic size bathrooms. Nice spa. Staff would benefit from some customer training in the bar and restaurant.
The staff were very helpful. We didn't have much of a veiw in our state room, we reserved a table for dinner for 8.30 and didn't get seated till 9.15. Staff were very sorry, and we got a complimentry drink.
Swimming pool is great. Rooms are great. Okay - small point - tv remotes don't work that well
Very friendly relaxed atmosphere not just a number the rate is important for business travellers staying one or two nights
gym facilities dining expensive
The staff were charming even though the Hall itself is a little worn around the edges. The food is terrible.
Great people. Excellent service. Walls were too thin and as there was a wedding on we didn't sleep much!
Nice atmosphere good staff and ideal for Market Harbour A litre expensive £65 plus £9 for breakfast is hotel prices
Excellent value for money
One of the best value hotels I have stayed in, a lovely place There were none
Well apointed modern room. Lovely food. Friendly & helpful staff The room was a bit small
Very friendly staff, kitchen was closed when I arrived but the waitress managed to concoct a very nice ham sandwich.
A real gem. Clean, comfortable, contempory, quiet rooms. Excellent food in a lovely pub. Easy to find, plenty of parking. None.
Food and service were excellent None
The rrom was spotless and well furnished, the food and breakfast were excellent and I highly recommend the Full English!
Friendly and good service by young staff Both rooms, although very nice and clean were very small with the door opening onto the car park area(not private). The kitchen extract fan / smells were discharging onto the front of the annex accomodation. No presence of owner / manager to meet/ greet.
The staff, service and breakfast were fantastic! We could hear the next room's shower from our room but this wouldn't put me off staying again.
