Hotel was worst I have ever been in.pictures on web site give a completely false impression. Room was dirty. The room offered was not ensuite and to my horror we were expected to use shower facilities that were being shared with up to 5 others, I cannot understand how this is acceptable and allowed under health and safety. I will... More

Photos on this site give a false impression. The place is in urgent need of a complete refurbishment. Breakfast is the usual self-serve, but is very bland. There is no vegetarian option except for cereals. The bar, which doubles as the dinning are is fitted out in purple, but the seats have seen better days and need recovering/up-dating. My room...

I had a fantastic weekend staff very welcoming and friendly. Great place to stay. Ideal place if looking for somewhere to stay for the grand prix as it is situated close to the centre of Northampton where the bus goes to the track regularly during the weekend. Looking forward to next year as I am already booked in for the... More

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!!
