Great hotel and location unfortunately they dont have a lift and if youre disabled you may struggle with the stairs. I had to at very short notice stay over night in Peterborough and i was extremely luck to get their last room as there was a local event on and all the rooms were fully booked. The hotel is 2...

We were at the hotel for a book event and stayed at the hotel and attended a ball in the evening. The Hotel is right by the train station but we did not have any problems with noise. The hotel is a little old fashioned but that did not bother us at all. The main selling point for this hotel... More

Booked last minute following too much champagne in London so needed to find a hotel preferably close to the station as the car was there. This was just a few steps from the station so perfect. We stayed on a room only basis for £60 so excellent value. We were offered breakfast as an extra and told we could decide... More

A comfy hotel. Pleasant welcome, nice historic atmosphere. Nice to stay somewhere that is reasonably priced and not part of a chain. The breakfast was excellent - much enjoyed by me and my two teenaged children.

Innuksuk007 Thank you for your review. We do feel our unique selling point is the fact that we are not part of a mass produced chain, and the fact that are service levels are second to none. I do hope that you will visit us again soon. Kind Regards Shaun Rollinson General Manager More

We stopped here mainly for the proximity to the train station. So I'll start with a negative it can be a bit noisy as there is a fairly busy road behind and a train station in front. You must be aware of this when booking and if you are a good sleeper it shouldn't distract you too much. Now that's... More

Banger 1979 I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Great Northern Hotel. I will pass on your comments to all concerned. We have renovated certain parts of the hotel, however we have tried to maintain the character and age of the property.

Overall very happy with our stay. Great location, great staff, good looking place, nice to not be in a chain hotel. Only used the room and bar. Room good, bed good, could look at more detailed cleaning from the guests point of view ie fingerprints on wardrobe seen when laying on the bed. Bar good, prices reasonable, nice atmosphere. Great...

Jim D Thank you for your positive response. We do feel that the uniqueness of the property and the history that it has does stand us out from the bedroom factory chain properties, along with our friendly but professional service.

I was disappointed that the hotel car park was not for use by hotel guests which meant I had to spend some time looking for an overnight car park which cost me an extra £17. The room was adequate. Value for money was poor considering I booked the hotel because it offered car parking facilities close to the station that... More

I often stay at this hotel travelling on business and it's ideal for me. Right across from the rail station, supermarket (Waitrose) next door and taxis on hand. The reception staff during the day at the GN are fantastic and can't do enough for you and in the evening the restaurant always has something I fancy freshly made. You do... More

Called in as we were early for a train. Well, how lovely. Old fashioned service, good menu, not too expensive. Nice wine & great welcome from Julia, Katherine & smiley faces from everyone else. We will return (even if we don't need to catch a train!)
