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.
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.
Helpfullness of staff, smart facilities Price of drinks at the bar
It Was In The Town Centre
The Innaction health spa was great and the staff at the spar were very helpful there were lots of little things that did not come up to standard.
Buffet breakfast / staff courtesy No
uncomfortable beds, dirty window coverings, early morning fire alarm,
The room was extremely spacious, clean and airy. We could have done with another set of towels as needed to shower on night of arrival and then again next morning. I do understand that the provision of one set of towels per person tends to be the standard policy of most hotel chain.
good location and parking slightlt ageing. could do with freshening up
easy come easy go swimming and sauna conveniant for town and shops Reception not being able to sort out minor problems i.e. television sub titles for the deaf.
Found the service was very good, the rooms clean and comfortable. Enjoyed that it was a 'green' hotel and conscious of resources. I was on a business trip and was greatful for the steam, pool and jacuzzi at the end of a long day. Shame that the sauna was out of use. Would prefer a cheaper single person suppliment.
very reasonably priced and a nice breakfast. It was very basic and the restaurant wasn't open on either night of our stay.
This is the second stay at this hotel. We were wanting to stay close to Silverstone and this was very convenient. Everywhere was exceptionally clean and beds were very comfortable. We had an evening meal and breakfast, not what I would call gourmet however it was very nice.
Not too much, basic cheap, bit very comfortable Rooms looked better on the Internet, very basic and cheap fit out. Functional but better out there for the money
Clean and tidy room Poorly serviced, lack of towels, meagre tea and coffee allowance, nothing to say the hotel really cares about it's customers, just bland and nothing special.
Good location off the motorway. Excellent value for money. Good size rooms and very clean. breakfast was served 8am-10am, and we had to leave at 7.30am so missed out.
Very clean, excellent facilities, very comfortable. Delicious breakfast, Air conditioned rooms, friendly staff.
Very pleasant and helpful happy staff. Everywhere spotlessly clean and fresh. Excellent food, good beer! Excellent value for the price.Can`t fault it.This hotel is on j15 m1 (uk) None
Everything excellent No Bad points
Very handy location and excellent value for money Nothing at all wrong with the hotel, perfect
Helpful & friendly staff, good location, clean room and surrounding areas, easy to find No bad points just little extras which would help ie: Fridge (we had to take sandwiches to a bowls competition at a local school). Tea making facilities for all occupants (only enough for 2 when there were 3 in the room).
Comfort and cleanliness of the room unable to get a late drink at the bar
Extremely clean The prices of the drinks at bar, well wine actually. I have worked in the uk and abroad for the last 8 years in lodges,Holiday parks and 3 and 4 star hotel abroad and a glass of wine has never cost me £6.00 nor £15.99 a bottle. So was a bit disappointed and ended up having a cider!
Nearness to the motorway
Very relaxing. High quality furnishings, and service. Very friendly staff, even willing to make breakfast out of time. Breakfast very basic though, the UK version of continental. The decor was very modern,though very clean: I found this the least relaxing of the stay,with brash lighting
it was peace and quiet
Shower head in bathroom, very poor.
cleanliness, comfort and price i would recommend this hotel if the staff were more friendly
They seem to have thought of everything Climate control in room blew directly onto bed
Convenient location Scrambled egg at breakfast like rubber
Not checking out till 1200 was a bonus.Having a selection of snacks and confectionary available at reception 24/7 was a great idea. No meats available - cold would be fine - with the breakfast buffet.
Good reception staff. Comfy lounge Bed and pillows not particularly comfy. Even though room had various pillows
The food in the resturante was very good. I had trouble on several attempts to contact the reception
Very clean rooms, nice bathroom and quite a central location. I wouldn't usually expect to pay to stay in the car park but £5 wasn't too bad.
Mature staff - exceptionally good None - quite pricey and not impressed in paying for the carpark
Very nice. Loved the gym
The bed was comfortable. The lighting in the room was complicated and inadequate.
The pool & sauna facelities Would be great if spa facilities were open late
very clean and spacious; Staff were very professional and acomodating.
Room was clean and the overall facilities at the hotel were very good and child friendly
None The curtains were broken they needed hanging properly, the desk in the room had a broken leg,the beds were hard and uncomfortable,around the windows were black mould and damp and the net curtains were filthy.The room smelt as though someone had been smoking in the room and there were large cob webs hanging from the ceiling.The bedside lamp was broken so was the shower curtain,the complimentary soap etc was only enough for 1 person and there was 3 of us.
Gary on reception was very helpfull with booking flowers which I enquired about for my arrival as it was my anniversary I had to have my room key electronically reset atleast 5 times
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.
I was impressed by the exceptionally friendly disposure of the staff - especially one very helpful lady in the restuarant.
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.
Breakfast. Anaemic sausages!
All the staff we met were welcoming and considerate.
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
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 .................
Rooms were large, good showers! Unfriendly, unhelpful staff who are not interested in the customer and don't know how to work their own systems.
Very friendly and attentive staff. computer keyboard was replaced immediately. served within a reasonable time at the restaurant. Although the room was adequate for our needs, it smelt of cigarette smoke the moment we walked into the room. that same night, I did not sleep very well as the bedclothes smelt of cigarette smoke and being a non-smoker, it affected me. On arrival, we were asked to complete a form and I read that smoking was prohibited and if caught smoking, a penalty would be incurred. Outside our window we saw cigarette ends and a lighter. During the course of the night at approx 1.45 am, a smoke alarm sounded, causing a bit of panic and not knowing if we had to follow the evacuation procedure.
Staff were fairly friendly, tea and coffee was there Room was dirty, not value for money overall
Staff were very helpful. This was my first time in Northampton and I didn't know my way around, staff provided map and advice of where shops etc were located. There were no 'mini' complimentary tolietries in my room and the soap dispenser in the shower was empty during the whole of my one week's stay
Very clean and fresh look to the hotel, attentive staff and very nice lounge/dining area None - everything was good
Location The room was bleak, there were people running up and down the corridor at 4am, singing and shouting
clean; polite staff occasional loud pipework/plumbing noise; poor architecture: the view of the roof was needlessly depressing
Large, clean room, friendly staff, good shower and kettle useful. Also a good breakfast and prompt help when my card got demagnetised. Bit basic with some facilities, especially lack of bathmat and freeview tv channels. Could also do with better coffee somehow!
Staff were friendly and polite `There was alot of noise well into the early hours doors banging people shouting to each other until about 03.40
Too few towels, pillows and tv channels. Lift out of order. Rude man on reception. Have to pay for parking on top of room cost. Not good. The bathroom though clean, was not in great shape. lots of discolouration. The bed was Very creaky and moved.
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.)
Clean modern hotel. Very comfortable Queen sized bed Plenty of room in the shower. Non found
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!!!!
Very friendly and helpful staff. N/A
Aircon in room didn't work
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.
was a business overnight stay as working in the area. Excellent value especially as breakfast free.Will be booking again next week
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 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
Nice interior of the common facilities Room really hot windows don't open very far, they supplied a small fan which basically circulated warm air around the room. They supplied cushions instead of pillows for the bed which made awkward sleeping on top of the heat and the noise of the fan having to be on all night. Food and drink prices very steep in terms of quality.
Clean and tidy friendly staff Room a bit small, no lift.
Food was excellent Drinks seemed pricey but that may be Marriot general policy.
The room was lovely- v.clean and comfortable! The Angel Spa Treatment Lady was fantastic. The staff were great too. The food was very expensive- didn't personally think it was worth the price. The windows are very thin- not ideal for a hotel located near a busy motorway, it also left the room really cold during the night. The aircon in the room was broken and we could not turn it off at all- disturbed our nights sleep!
Quick check in and good breakfasts Arrived at 5.00pm and the corridor to my room was littered with room service trays that had not yet been collected. Created a bad impression.,
Breakfast was decent enough, room was clean, bed was comfy, handy for the golf course if you like golf Decor a bit dated, shower could have been better
Comfortable room with proper bathroom (ie a bath!), windows that actually open, easy access to hotel from ring road, surprisingly good restaurant. Cost of room and meal high for location, time of year and day of the week (Saturday).
I was extreamly impressed with this hotel, so much so that I have written a letter to the hotel to thank them None
Very good value for money
Good location for travel up m1. Effective/swift resolution by management of complaints. Mariotts have modern rooms and Canadian-style facilities. Confusion by check in staff on difference between full account prepayment and recording of credit card details for room charges. After a long corridor walk, we found our room was already occupied - raising security issues, not to mention a major inconvenience. We were not alerted that a four digit code is required to exit the parking lot, requiring a return to the desk.
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
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
Early check in was really good.
A fantastic hotel in a very quiet location. Could not find any faults
The rooms were so lovely. Also on arrival we were made so welcome and informed of all facilities.
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.
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)
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 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.
clean, comfotable, good location and good breakfast and value for money.
Excellent value, very nice room and good breakfast. None
Excellent stay (3 nights). Very good attentive service. We had dinner at the restaurant twice - the best food we have had at a restaurant in a long time. Very professional and absolutely delicious. Great wines too. We would have eaten three times but for other plans. Would thoroughly recommend. Nothing at all. Regarding reviews. We found them conflicting, some extremely picky. We had no problems. True we did find two of the staff having their breakfast at the same time as us, but one presumes they have to eat before starting work and showed good manners, so not sure what that review complaint was about.
Excellent food and great atmosphere Ask for a room on the car park side otherwise your room will be next to the road
Friendly and very helpfull staff. Nice room and atmosphere. Good restaurant for dinner (try the huge pizza!) and breakfast. Bed and shower are not really suitable for a tall person (> 1,85m). Relatively busy trafic on the street in front of the hotel, which you can hear with the window open.
Welcome, Restaurant, Meal, Drink. 1 x sour milk. Dirt under bed and on skirting board behind bed. 1 small kit kat to share between us both.
The hotel room was clean and comfortable with good tea and coffee making facilities. The food was good and reasonable priced and vey well presented.
The room and restaurant Check in 2pm lunch finished 2.30, so we immediately had to go out,? (Pretty crazy) needed breakfast 7am were told not before 8am, we did eventually get it but thru arguing !!!!
Excellent breakfast Decor throughout hotel was good Bar staff attitude was not great - continued to sweep up although we were waiting to be served Matress on bed was very, very squeaky
dinner in the restaurant surly and unfriendly staff at breakfast with a lack of attention to our requirements
Very nice atmosphere and very comfortable - good food and very handy location - about 15 minutes max from M25 Not exactly boutique as advertised - but very comfortable
The staff were very helpful from the first point of contact. They aloowed us to check out an hour later on departure which was very much appreciated. The room was very clean and comforatble. We were a little dissappointed with the food. We have read good reports on the website, however, our first choice was not available from the menu and my wife's alternative selection was moderate. Also, the bar area for eating was quite smokey.However, never judge a restaurant on one meal and it would not stop us re-visiting.
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
Uncomfortable bed - kept rolling into middle of bed
The room was very nice and ready to sleep straight away. There should be a microwave available for heating up of baby food etc..!!
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
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
The Staff were efficient and friendly The toaster was faulty at breakfast but other than that I could not fault the service.
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.
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!
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.
Staff friendly, food was delicious...good clean comfortable accomodation, well located. Comfortable bed. Room a little small, otherwise good
Friendly staff and very good food. Even breakfast was a pleasant and jolly experience - all too often a sombre affair!
High quality room, great bar, breakfast excellent None at all
Very friendly and helpful staff. Superb and plentiful breakfast which was freshly prepared. The only downfall to our stay was road noise which was a little disturbing, however, as we live in the depths of the countryside, we are used to absolute quietness and this has a bearing on the answer.
Location was very convenient as we were going to local funeral. Liked decor and atmosphere, bed very comfortable.
Very clean and modern quiet room Bathroom lights did not all work
Excellent food, bright modern room, great shower. Internally advertised 'dine and stay' not available as we had booked on- line, although I understand we received the internet room rate, a reduction of £20
Very clean and new bathroom with nice toiletries. Warm. Comfortable bed. Friendly staff-got me a sandwich on arrival though kitchen had shut 30mins befoore I got there. Coffee was rather cold at breakfast
Everything was just "ok", there was nothing wrong with the hotel but there was nothing to shout about either. For some reason they seem to have touched up the paintwork on some doors and put up no warning signs so my partner got her hands covered in paint opening a door.
Very good value. pleasnt staff, would go again
The room was very comfortable
able to relax, enjoy a quiet business conversation in the exquisite bar area, and an excellent meal getting wet in between my room and the bar/dining area
The staff were friendly, very helpful, making sandwiches for us even though the kitchen was closed, as we had arrived late due to the bad weather, and served us in the bar, the food was very good, hot and fresh breakfast buffet. I had an 'old blood stain' on a pillow case, which I know was clean but it did not look nice, I pointed this out to housekeeping and mentioned to the reception when I checked out. The radiator in the ensuite did not appear to work either, which was brought to their attention upon check out.
lovely countryside location
The general ambience was delightful, a mixture of "outside and Inside" feeling, rather than the normal claustrophobic sensation of a "one-building" hotel. I admit the carpet entrance to the group of three rooms which my family used was a wee bit grubby - and one receptionist was a bit sharp. But i am splitting hairs. The hotel was 99% delightful.
The helpfulness of all the staff The dining area is like a corridor and there were families where the parents let their children run up and down. Hell for the diner looking to enjoy a quite meal!
Restaurant coped very well with a grumpy older member of our group Mobile phone reception is poor - between us we had at least 3 providers but all of them were patchy. I think this is an area problem rather than the hotel
Everything was great from the food and drink to the great leisure facilities
unforiunatly due to busy schedule did not have time to use any of what looked like very good amieneties,but what i did use were very good eg resteraunt coffee lounge.
Clean , practical, very good breakfast, helpful accommodating staff. Convenient to city centre.
The distance to the City Center by Taxi was great!!! Only a Five Pounds! I did not get the room I paid for as advertise on the internet but the room was still clean and comfortable.
The shower was great. Also the pillows were excellent. We took full advantage of the breakfast deal at £6 The picture on the TV in our room was off to one side
Hotel took payment twice !!
Quality of room and convenience of facilities Some staff didn't follow through on requests
Loation and cleanliness of the room. The price was the main factor for visiting our daughter in University. Would come again. Price of the breakfast if you paid for room only.
Big rooms! Staff were useless! Man could not find my booking, i had to psyhically go behind the desk and find it for him on systems i didnt know!!!!!
The room was very spacious
yes the state of there bathrooms we informed the managment of the dirt they tried to change our room for us but they found that other rooms where they same
convenient for stay air conditioning noisy, and why three pillows for two people?
The room was really lovely and warm, the breakfast was also really good!
The Pub next door. The grounds and setting. Not too peaceful if staying in room during day, due to busy maids. Expensive if late checkout required
Peace n quiet
walking the grounds
The room , breakfast We came to sedgebrook hall only for a relaxing weekend.we wanted.to use the swimming pool and jacussi but we couldn't because these was out of order.at no point was we informed about this.would you consider letting us stay for free again when these facilities which we payed for are actually working
It is convenient to the sailing and breakfast was good i asked for a twin room when booking as I was staying with my mother. As it was a double we were given she went home and did not stay a bit disapppointing as I had specified it when booking
The swimming pool, sauna & jacuzi. Even though the heating was on full in the room, it still wasn't warm enough. Everywhere in the hotel seemed warmer than our room.
Hotel staff all were very helpful, lovely English breakfast. Long walk to the room, not ideal for the disabled. Bed was very soft, (each to there own) Noise in the corridoor very late to early hours of the morning. I feel there should be signs on all door (please respect other people sleeping.)
Location As above
Good atmosphere in the bar, friendly and polite staff Looked to have good facilities Good food - nice breakfast with plenty of choice
Room was adjacent very busy road and hence very very!!! noisy which was a shame as it was a very good room for the price otherwise. had to set off at 7 20 am full breakfast not available till 7 30 am although toast coffee etc was provided
Breakfast excellent Fan in bathroom extremely loud and obviously faulty
The hotel was very comfortable and steeped in history. The hot water on the top floor of the hotel lacked pressure and was not always hot.
food, staff interior of the hotel part (pub is ok)
I liked the atmosphere about the place, the rooms were very clean and appealing, The waiters and waitresses were very obliging, and polite.There was a very comfortable feel about the whole place. My only reservations were regarding the unavailability of items on the food menu and the wine list.
The food & neil diamond tribute
Location, helpful staff, room and bedroom area security At breakfast I ordered smoked haddock and was served haddock. Lovely for lunch but not breakfast. I do not think the member of staff knew what smoked haddock is.
Very comfortable , excellent VFM , good food and the staf were very pleasant and helpful No complaints at all
Nice-sized family room. Good breakfast. Curtains and fittings strating to look a bit tatty.
