The hotel is situated conveniently close to where I was working, so it was a perfect location for me. The room I had was a little cramped but very nicely decorated, with a strong shower. It was noisy some nights, but this was due to other people stomping around. The television turned itself up every time you changed channel which... More

I stayed with colleagues at this excellent hotel for three days recently, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and well run, the bedrooms are quite a bit small, but as a single occupant in a double room it was not a problem for me, a little bit of TLC is required on the maintenance side,...

We stayed for only one night in September and were very impressed with this hotel. In fact we wished we had known about it years ago as we occasionally have to stay in Northampton and previously we have stayed in chains thinking they were better value but we won't any more. The bed was very comfortable with top quality sheets,... More

This former manor house was only opened in 2006. Yes it is near a housing estate, but it was there well before the housing estate!! It has been tastefully decorated with a certain degree of opulence. There are only 19 rooms and although an extension has been undertaken no attempt has been made to desecrate the building. Consequently some of... More

Stayed here for one night for a business trip. Nice room but very small. Really good food in a quite busy little restaurant. Good choice of dishes. One of the better hotels I have stayed in around that area. Would stay again and recommend it.

Dear P.U.F, Thank you for your review and for recommending The Hopping Hare. The Hopping Hare was previously a Manor House and our en-suite bedrooms are all individually designed and of excellent quality but our bedrooms are of differing size and dimensions, with several very large rooms and some smaller rooms. Please request a larger room when you next book... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hopping Hare last Wednesday evening and what a lovely experience. The staff were most attentative and the room was large, very clean with gorgeous spacious bathroom. The hotel lounge was most comfortable and evening meal and breakfast were both very tasty. I am usually fussy about 'greasy' breakfasts but this was very good,... More

I booked this hotel with late rooms on a Monday for 3 nights starting the next day, reasonable deal to include breakfast and was particularly pleased as we had eaten here previously, on our last visit to Northampton, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room we were given on the first night was disappointing in that it was ground floor, tucked... More

Dear Travel Bag, Thank you for your kind review. We have one room (room 20) which is on the ground floor and as you say, it can be a bit noisy. We do tell customers when they book but you would not realise this booking through Late Rooms. However, delighted the food was excellent and staff polite and friendly. We... More

We had to make an overnight stay in Northampton, and chose this place at random from the internet. It turned out to be a good choice. Although situated on the edge of a housing estate, don't let this detract from this beautiful building - the modern and tasteful décor of the bar areas, restaurant and bed rooms are to a... More

My husband and I selected this hotel from a list given by a friend as accommodation for her wedding guests. The hotel is situated on the edge of a housing estate, not a grand entrance! Although it is very close to a busy road, there is relatively little road noise, at least from the room in which we stayed. The... More
