“Contemporary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2007

Booked last minute direct with the hotel and they had a great deal at £40 for room and breakfast if you ate in the restaurant.

The food in the restaurant was lovely with a good varied menu. It was busy and our reservation was squeezed in which meant we only had 1.5 hours before they needed the table. However, it didn't feel like we were being rushed and it was very enjoyable.

The room was modern and had some nice touches - such as the soft furnishings, moulton brown toiletries, kitkats! Breakfast was good quality with 'proper' sausages, but a little disorganised and not enough staff to cope with a sudden influx of people.

Overall, a really lovely hotel - if you want a relaxing place to stay and go out for dinner without the worry of driving home after, then this is perfect. Not far from Pitsford Reservoir so you can walk it off the next day!

  • Liked — Good restaurant and bar, modern, contemporary accommodation
  • Disliked — Having to eat early as restaurant was fully booked - but this is a good sign!

Really excellent hotel. Unlike the other reviewer, I found the restaurant lovely, food was great with unusual dishes you don't see everywhere else.
The accommodation was of superior standard, lovely and clean, modern decoration, large bed, Moulton Brown toiletries. And also lthe room was larger than traditional accommodation probably because of modern disability access requirements.
The pub/bar area itself was also very modern, bar staff very attentive. Plenty of parking and easy to find on the A4500. Even as just a place for a Saturday night drink the people of Ecton must be very pleased to have this on their doorstep!

I am sorry I don't have more reason to visit the Northampton area so I could stay here again!

  • Liked — Everything was near to perfect
  • Disliked — It is in Northampton! Not much reason to travel there.
  • Tips/Secrets — A room on the car park side is quieter than a room on the road side.

Hotel rooms may be very nice but the restaurant menu lacks severely in choice.

Sampled the wild mushrooms with Mediterranean vegetables and tagliatelle, after complaining as the Mediterranean vegetables consisted of just two pieces of red pepper one centimetre square this dish had to be the worst that I have ever tasted.

As a frequent visitor to Northampton, this hotel is a great find.

Newly and tastefully refurbished to a high standard - I believe it only re-opened in March 06. Accommodation in an all new wing.

Service friendly & helpful. They deserve to do well.

Such hotel quality is very hard to find in many towns, particularly when so many hotels seem to concentrate on saving running costs rather than attracting repeat guests.
