Whilst from the outside the plough does look like a traditional pub hotel , I naturally had quite high expectations , unfortunately upon entry into the reception area via a rather raggedy conservatory and I was given my key by quite possibly the surliest receptionist I have had the misfortune to meet. The room although a single on initial entry... More

Dear Marc G Thank you for taking the time to post this review following your stay with us. I can tell you that we are about to replace our conservatory entrance with a structure more in keeping with the building, and are currently awaiting planning permission. The receptionist who checked you in was perhaps a little distracted when your credit... More

The welcome was warm but that was it! On check-in I was informed our room wasn't actually in the hotel but in an outbuilding. The room was shabby, really needed freshing up! After being out all day we came back to the room about 4pm to find no housekeeping had been done! Bin not emptied and no fresh towels! We... More

Take a trip back to the 30's a creaky old fashioned hotel cum B and B, bar staff are indifferent, mushroom growing status in the rooms is good, mine was dark which afforded good growing for allsorts. Quite a noisy "outside"

I was disappointed to read your review, and somewhat frustrated that tripadvisor gives no clue to the identity of guests, or when they actually stayed, so it becomes somewhat impossible to trace such bookings. If indeed the hotel had been as bad as the review states, I would have expected a guest to make their feelings known at the time,... More

The hotel was a big disappointment, shabby, strange smell possibly a damp fusty smell, no air con, when opened window to try and cool down as it was very hot and stuffy, it was then very noisy from the busy road and the pub crawlers!

This hotel has so many plusses that it's difficult to comprehend why so many people would have given bad reviews previously ? In terms of location it is excellent, right on the edge of the town centre, at the bottom of a street which has multiple music bars etc - if you're in your 20's / 30's I would imagine... More

I stayed here for one night after a gig at the MK Bowl. The hotel is situated around 10 minutes walk from Northampton train station and for a late booking, was the best option on offer. I wasn't expecting much and the hotel met those expectations. The room was basic and in need of a refit (especially the bathroom) but... More
