They make any request of yours possible! The rooms... More

Hackleton School, Northampton had another absolutely fabulous week at the Friends Hotel with Paul and Sandra. Can I thank you both tremendously on behalf of all of the children and staff. We could not have asked for better food and care. See you both again on our next residential.

Stayed here for one night's B&B as a result of leaving it too late to book anywhere else on a busy summer weekend. Twin room was small and dated but adequately provided with tv, shower, kettle etc. Breakfast was a pretty decent fry-up (and there were lots of other options, but I didn't try those). Main complaints would be: -... More
