We stayed here after visiting the Whittlesey Straw Bear festival, and because it was very handy for the Brewery Tap, one of my partners favourite watering holes. The hotel was very pleasant, the staff friendly and helpful. On entering and leaving reception, a member of staff held the door open for us (I walk with a stick and my partner... More

We booked to stay at the hotel on a recommendation from a friend for our anniversary. I was dubious at first as I thought it would be dated and would not normally consider a hotel to dine. WOW!! How wrong was I?? It is a beautiful building. We were booked to dine in the Restaurant at 19:30, so we decided... More

Theres 2 things I'd comment on- the telly signal from using the remote in bed is a bit rubbish but, i know that's no fault of the hotels and for me, the bed was quite uncomfortable- i woke up with a really bad back in the morning and the pillows were too flat with no option to request better pillows....

I have become a fairly frequent traveller to Peterborough, and together with colleagues have stayed in the Great Northern Hotel in Peterborough. I have to give this hotel a resounding PLUS. I travel from Northumberland, so have a late arrival. The reception is always well lit and pleasant and the receptionists are always friendly, welcoming and incredibly helpful. The rooms... More

This is a great hotel right opposite the train station and within walking distance from the city and the shopping centre. Prices are reasonable and the food is good too. I have stayed here many times and have never been disappointed.

Not a bad place but could be better if you could buy a drink in the bar at 22.45 without it being changed to your room and it would be nice if they had reading lamps at the bedside instead of bright spotlights but breakfast was good
