Stayed there 2nights. Nothing special, just ok. Floors need looking at, very noisy when walked on. You could hear people walking about most nights. Breakfast is already cooked, serve yourself. Bacon well done and hard, eggs just warm, beans and sausages were OK. Coffee was ok aswell.

A short one night stay for business. The food was nice and the staff were friendly. There is a small bar, which suited me nicely, for a couple of drinks before bed! The room was fine. I had no problems with my stay and would stay again. I would recommend.

I have spent two nights in this hotel. The staff is quiet nice and there wasn't any issue except the room itself. I was there for business, so when I checked in I asked for a room with good internet connectivity and so was given a room on the ground floor. The problem is that this hotel is on the... More

My experience there dates back to 2013 (sorry I ticked May 2015 as the year 2013 isn't mentioned). My aunt and I had been looking for an accomodation for at least two hours and couldn't find anything in or around Wellingborough and it was getting late.

This hotel is not much to look at from the outside but is deceptive. Our room was nicely decorated and immaculately clean. Biscuits with the tea and coffee in the room was a nice touch. The food in the restaurant was good and the staff were very friendly. The drinks in the hotel bar were reasonably priced too. My only... More
