We stayed on a Saturday evening as we had been visiting relatives in the area. I didn't book a table in the restaurant when I made our room reservation as I wasn't sure what our dinner plans would be. We requested a tabled when we checked in but there was no spaced in the restaurant so we sat in the... More

I expect this hotel keeps busy with business guests during the week. We arrived at the weekend when a wedding party was going on which didn't cause us any inconvenience, the staff were perfectly capable of dealing with our needs at the same time. Our room was spacious and well appointed, our evening meal was good. I have no complaints... More

My family and me went to the hopping hare on Sunday because it was my 20 th. birthday and we had the carvery. It was the best carvery ever because you had a choice of three meats which were roasted chicken breast,belly of pork, beef. I had the chicken and it was lovely. And the puddings were good too

We booked a large party for a wedding breakfast. Jenna and her staff were helpful all through the process and on the day, nothing was too much trouble. Food was great, all came out at the same time and hot - a bonus. Everyone was well fed and relaxed and it made the day so much more memorable. Thank you.... More

Our room was spacious,modern and clean with plenty of storage space, iron and ironing board and even an unsecured hairdryer so no need to press a button continuously. Bed linen of good quality and bed large and comfortable. One complaint would be the same for all hotels really and that is the need for a lighter weight duvet for a... More

Dear PennyFlint, Thank you for your full and comprehensive review. One point worth noting is that there is a park and ride facility for the Grand Prix at Silverstone from Sixfields stadium, which is only 2 miles from The Hopping Hare which I imagine is quicker and less stressful than driving. Worth considering if you are coming to the GP... More

What a find! We booked this hotel last minute and were unsure what it would be like. The room was lovely and large - bed was a bit soft but that was the only complaint as such. Breakfast was wonderful and not the standard run of the mill choices. Also had dinner in the hotel and had a lovely meal.... More

Have stayed here before which is why I chose to stay again. Room was a lot smaller this time, but I wasn't concerned as it was a business trip. The food here is always nice and the staff always friendly.

I have three fairly recent visits here, the staff are friendly, the decor is modern and smart, everything is clean and the food is excellent. The chips are truly delightful and there aren't many chefs who can cook pigeon to the standard that this one does. I had the £25 fillet steak dish too which was delicious and cooked exactly... More
