In a word- repugnant!! Everything is in need of a scrub,literally everything! Had to go and get clean bedding as the set that was on our bed was dirty. All windows/mirrors/work tops/walls/furniture were grubby and shabby. Carpets needed replacing throughout, but a few minutes vacuuming may of helped, bedroom floor was thick with dust. Curtains needed more hooks so they... More

This hotel was on a list of suggestions, as we were attending a wedding nearby. The website looked great, there was no problem when booking, it was all looking good. The first thing that got my attention on arrival was the stench of the men's toilets. Still, the staff were friendly & helpful so I decided to ignore that. The... More

Reading some recent reviews, I did wonder whether I had been staying at the same palace several times. I opted for the shared facilities as I was a late starter (the reviewer Rob Wilson100 clearly did not read the options on offer as you can share or go ensuite). It is an old coaching inn and so, limited in what... More

First hotel I found at £57 for night on my own,pay the extra for ensuite as sharing in this hotel is not the best.Staff were very friendly and helpful.Asked for food and they don't do anything other than breakfast on Friday,sat,sun.This hotel is tired and needs updating and only good for sleep when you've had a few!!

Myself and my husband had a Groupon voucher for a 2 night stay at this hotel and after reading the reviews I was really dreading it but was quite surprised. We had a lovely warm welcome from the lady in reception, we were given a family room that was very warm and quite large . The bedding was very clean... More

I booked this for my wife who is looking after her mother while she is in Northampton General. The website makes this look pretty classy, but oh dear, it gives completely the wrong impression! This is a pub used by builders when they stay in the area working on local contracts. My wife was the only female resident in the... More

I have recently stayed in this hotel, my first time to the city. My friend went to see me and the old receptionist lady was so impolite. Her attitude was so bad, she talked impolitely to my friend "Don't stay more than 15 minutes". If it's hotel policy, they'd better inform customers from the start. I recommend you guys choose...
