“A functional establishment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

I'm in a reasonable position to write this review given a recent 10 day stay visiting my wife's relatives. The hotel appears best suited to the single "overnight stay"; the rooms clean and functional though not luxurious by any means in spaciousness or comfort. There are no opening windows for fresh air which makes the rooms stuffy even with the air-con running full-time. There are no security safes to store valuables in the room. The bed was o'k but only just a queen size. The breakfast seems to get lots of negative comments and these seem well justified. Dried out food sitting in hot boxes (eggs, bacon and baked beans) greets you in a strangely configured eating area consisting of one long high bench to share with other diners or a number of smallish tables focused around a large TV screen. The general motivation is to eat quickly and get away and on a busy morning the traffic can be hectic. There is a selection of bread for toast and a few uninspiring spreads, juices and below average stewed coffee, tea and a selection of tiny uninspiring pastries. In other words, you wouldn't stay here for the breakfast! On the positive, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was well serviced. The location is o'k though if you arrive at the hotel late in the evening you will find their car park filled with vehicles of patrons from the pub so you will need to park in the larger adjacent car park.

Dear eckstatik,

Thanks for leaving your accurate review. The hotel is certainly geared towards the business traveller (and that's not to say there is no place for the leisure guest, we do a fair bit of this in line with the Speedway circuit).

We do have safe's for guest use located at our reception area and as most new build hotels do ensure our windows are closed for security reasons. We do have our own car park, as you mention this is also linked to a larger car park so there is more often than not always parking available.

Our breakfast offering and seating is Hampton standard. With over 1900 hotels worldwide (Hilton's largest brand by far) it is a standard that is well tested and serves us a focussed service hotel very well. That said we are always looking for improvements and I will certainly be discussing this with my team.

Guest feedback is vitally important to us so we can make changes or indeed thank members of the team when it is needed, again my thanks for your review and next time your over I hope you will give us another try!

I do hope the visits with the relatives was worth the long journey!

Thanks

Martyn

Stayed for work was a bit worried when I pulled up as it seems to be in the middle of the ndustrial estate but hotel is actually quite nice
Staff were very friendly and helpful
Menu in the hotel restaurant is very limited and not the best but there is a weather spoons next door although I didn't go
Would stay again for the price but not eat in the restaurant

Room Tip: Dont stay on the 3rd floor if it's raining as its very very noisy!

Dear 08062003,

Thanks for the review, glad to see you found the service to be good and the hotel was a pleasent surprise! We are a focussed service brand so our F&B menu's are smaller, however we launch our new menu's and revised HUB offering in the next few weeks, which will ensure some variety.

Hope to see you when your back in Corby and thanks again.

A pal and I were motor racing at Rockingham for the weekend. I booked this hotel for the two of us back in February this year and have been very pleased.

it is easy to find, ample car parking and once inside, everything you would want.

the rooms are modern, clean and spacious. ans just what we wanted for the racing weekend.

Rockingham Raceway is walking distance and there is a good pub handily placed near by.

We had a very quiet peaceful stay - even with a Wedding reception on Saturday.

There is a buffett style breakfast with a good choice of hot and cold dishes.

Overall really pleased as we had a great weekend.

Adjacent to a large Wetherspoons pub which is convenient for pub food. Pub is a loud type and has doormen posted. Large car park available which seems to serve various facilities including the pub and fast food outlets. Hotel rooms modern and clean with card operated locks on doors. Breakfast is simple buffet style. Quite close to Rockingham Speedway. Someone else staying at the hotel mentioned having had their car bonnet jumped on in the large car park whilst I was staying there. There is a very small car park immediately in front of the hotel, but that was full. There is some CCTV coverage.

Dear A-Paying-Guest,

Thanks for leaving the honest and frank review, glad to see you found the hotel suited to your needs! We do have our own car park however there is a larger car park which is part of the leisure park with various food outlets and the pub as you mention.

I must admit the incident with the other guests car has not been raised to the hotel. If you have any more information on this I would certainly like to hear it so I can follow up!

Hope to see you when your next back in Corby!

Thanks

I stayed at this hotel for a wedding and the location was good. The rooms were also fine although the bed was less than comfy so i woke up every hour or so. The breakfast can only be described as a cattle market! Millions of very hungry hungover people, No food, no cups, no glasses, no knives, no plates! Coffee but alas. ..no cup to put it in! Food and plates eventually arrived and i helped myself to bacon and hash browns. On arriving at my table after searching for a chair for ten minutes i discovered that the hash brown in my mouth was still frozen!! This is not acceptable especially in a well known hotel chain with

Dear fleurdelaney,

Sorry to see that our breakfast was not up to its normal standard when you stayed with us! On the day in question breakfast was exceptionally busy and it is clear we did not cope with this as best we could.

After a busy function the following morning can be a bit hectic with guests coming down at once with a need for some sustinance after a heavy night! We should of course been better able to cope with it and my apologies we were not.

I do hope you will consider using again when you are next in the area, rest assured the breakfast will a vastly better experience!

Good or bad, we like to receive all feedback so thankyou for taking the time to note your thoughts. It is greatly appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Martyn Hewitt - General Manager

We stayed at the Hampton hotel in Corby overnight to see my son and our stay was made so pleasurable by the extremely polite and more than helpful staff nothing was to much trouble and the room was immaculate with all the added extras, also a 24 hour bar which was great to sit and relax after our evening out, plenty of places to eat locally, and the breakfast buffet very good quality and a good start to the day -- all in price of the room definately we'll be going back again WELL DONE !!!

This is a fairly new hotel therefore as you would expect everything was clean and fresh. Greeted on arrival by Lauren who was excellent, friendly and informative. This is a basic hotel much on the lines of Travelodge and Travelinn. The rate we had for a one night stay was excellent as it also included a buffett breakfast which was perfectly good with a good choice of hot and cold items. We found the room confortable clean and modern. Although our room looked out onto a main road we were not disturbed by traffic noise. On bad point was that although the aircon said it was set at 17, it didn't actually feel that cold. We didn't use the bar as there is a Wetherspoons right next door so who could compete with their prices. This is an ideal hotel if all you require is somewhere clean and comfortable to stay. It is not luxury but at the prices they are charging you can't expect that.
