We've stayed here two years running. You can't get anywhere nearer for the British Grand Prix, all hotels booked up. Bed comfy, breakfast great, Staff lovely. My problem is with the pillows, which are so thin, so I did have to ask for extra. The hand wash/shower gel/shampoo is tricky to squeeze out of the gadgets on the wall.

My wife and I stayed here in readiness for the Grand Prix, I can't fault anything from the staff especially Libby who's attention to detail in the restaurant was second to none. The bar prices were very competitive as well. We will be back and would recommend this hotel if you're travelling through Northamptonshire and need somewhere to rest.

Needed to book an accessible room for my elderly, disabled parents. I specifically asked for such a room and was advised there was just one available on the ground floor. As I live locally I asked them to hold the room for 20 mins so I could drive round and check suitability. Got to the hotel and spoke to the... More

We love visiting here. The whole Art Deco ambience is great. Rooms are perfectly adequate especially considering the price. Breakfast good. Dinner very good. Staff helpful. And lots to see and do on the aerodrome including splendid museum. We will definitely be coming back.

When you arrive at a hotel at 9pm and they tell you food is served until 9:30pm you're generally inclined to believe them. Sadly that's not really the case here. Chef turns the gas off just after 9pm, cold food thereafter. Ploughmans after a seriously busy day doesn't really cut it. Disappointing. Be warned....

Had an amazing cocktail here. The barmaid hannah is a master Shaker. There are plenty of cocktails on offer but the the charlie is the best of them all. I was on on a company trip and the service was second to none.

This hotel is a delight. Real Art Deco style with delightful, friendly staff. We only stayed for one night as we went to a wedding. But the hotel was great value for money and within easy distance of the reception. We were told that there was an 80th birthday party on the night we had booked for and that it... More

Very disappointed in this hotel, booked in for two nights, the first room we were shown to was quite smelly, after returning to reception we were then shown another room which was much better. However the bed was no more than a mattress on a box. I like a firm bed but after 2 nights it was a relief not... More
