I stayed here for one night last Friday, 11th April. The room (number 123) was amazingly spacious and perfectly well appointed, the bathroom looked newly refurbished, the staff were courteous and helpful and the breakfast delicious. When I checked out, the receptionist enquired if I'd found the room noisy (it's at the front of the building and therefore overlooking the... More

I was in Peterborough for 2 weeks and was recommended The Great Northern by a colleague, and i have to say it was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable stays i have had. The rooms are kept tidy and very clean and are a nice size. The food is exquisite and brilliantly presented. The standout feature of this hotel... More

Last minute get together, we hadn't organised a hotel and arrived at the station. We planned to jump in a taxi and ask where was nice to stay but then saw the Great Northern hotel staring at us from across the road. Location perfect for shoping during the day then out with friends at night. Reasonable price for room and... More

We needed somewhere in Peterborough for 3 nights and tried this hotel because we got a great rate. It was fantastic and we will definitely stay here again. Our room was huge and nicely furnished (though let down by an unimpressive bed), great bathroom. And it was really quiet. The staff were very helpful and brought up more milk and... More

Lovely Hotel with clean room and a lovely rolltop bath, very helpful and pleasant staff nothing was to much trouble for them. The Hotel is convenient for the town and also the Cathedral and the museum. Only downside was that somebody set the fire alarm off ! Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here to break the journey from North London to Newcastle. My husband was walking with a stick and as there is no lift, the receptionist immediately upgraded us to a more accessible room, and asked if we needed help with our luggage. All staff were polite, friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure to eat in a hotel dining... More

This hotel is everything a railway hotel should be. The staff were lovely as was the breakfast and two dinners we ate there. Fabulous room with four poster and free standing tub in the bathroom. Lots of room. Victorian splendour abounded. Right opposite the train station and maybe 10 minutes walk to the river, Cathedral etc.
