Stayed here recently and basically the communal areas and rooms were dated and basic, the bathrooms poor and showers barely a dribble! There was 1 member of staff on that was manning reception, serving at the bar, cleaning the restaurant all on her own, easy to say the service was poor! There was a number of unsavoury type people sat... More

Hotel staff were helpful and friendly. Room was ok needs abit of updating but it was warm and comfortable and offered everything we needed. Breakfast was self service with plenty to choose from. Dining room was clean and spacious. Our overall stay was good, cheap and cheerful.

This hotel needs to get into the real world, needs updating both in décor and in its practices. To find out that the restaurant closes at 8.30 and last orders is 8.15 is simply prehistoric. We checked in and were given keys to our room upon entering it was immediately apparent that this room was already occupied, we found dirty... More

My husband, myself and our son stayed at you hotel on Friday August 28th in room 6. I expressed at the time our absolute disgust at the late night room movement between some of your residents, namely room 7 and others. It started at 11.30pm and proceeded until way past 1.30am and then resumed again at 6.30am. Children running up... More

We used this hotel to compliment a weekend at Santa Pod. The hotel was easy to find, plenty of on site car parking. Our room was a family room with a double and a single bed. All clean with a large bathroom. Whilst we over looked the road the room was very quiet. The hotel had a bar but we... More

After staying at the Hind hotel and other B & B's in Wellingborough I have to say this and the wonderful people who manage and run this hotel do an absolutely above and beyond job and do it with such ease . It feels like home from home but the food is soo much better.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Room clean and very comfortable. Food very good and home cooked (on a personal basis). First time I have stayed here but will have no hesitation in booking in again. The only criticism is that perhaps a beige carpet on the way to the accommodation is not the best colour choice for a hotel. (Stains... More
