Cheap and clean rooms. Everything in plain magnolia paint. Plug sockets along the head of the bed seemed really odd until I realised it was a twin room, with the beds pushed together to make a double. Tea and coffee in the rooms and shampoo and soap. Towels were large bath towels. Breakfast was continental and had everything you could... More

A clean no frills type of establishment. Nothing special but fair in all areas. Clean if somewhat dated room, continental style breakfast and average price. Not brilliant but not bad. If staying in warm weather get an upstairs room so you can leave the window open.

a nice place to stay booked at the last minute due to changes in work schedule, surprisingly nice as it was on Northampton university campus, the bar was pretty pricey for what it was, but all in all a good time

As an overnight stay before my daughter's graduation, this was extremely good value for money. The rooms need an overhaul and the breakfast was basic. Beds quite comfortable. Also beware of wasps. However still good value for a no nonsense stay

The rooms are really in desperate need of brightening up. Small and cramped. When I got in my room the curtains were closed. The TV didn't work, as it didn't change chanel and was stuck on "Gay Rabbit".... Not my cup of tea I'm afraid. The ABSOLUTE worst thing though as the towels.. The smaller of the two towels was...

Needed somewhere to stay in Northampton and The Sunley Centre seemed a good shout. Food was nice, room was basic but good enough. All in all really for the price you can't moan. Staff were very helpful and the place was clean.

Staff very helpful, room ok for a good night's sleep. Breakfast ok and varied, no cooked but that was advertised as only continental. For just over £40 quid a night I haven't stayed anywhere as good value for ages

This was the second time I have stayed at Sunley, but the first time I have eating in the restaurant during the evening and I was disappointed. The room had everything required other than a phone, compared with Travel Lodge or Premier Inn the room was small and generally run down and dated. The WiFi keeps cutting in and out,... More

I was expecting a lot more from a professional conference centre with rooms. I usually book a DeVere venue, if I am staying at a conference centre as they are well priced but better equipped and staffed. At the Sunley, the rooms are quiet but very basic. I had no room phone, the wifi cuts out every 10 mins (others... More
