“Does what it says on the tin !!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Good value for money at £45 and is situated in close proximity to town centre.

Good quality breakfast and a-tentative staff.

Avoid rooms next to reception should you want a lie in. Very very noisy in mornings.

Bar had more beers off than on but not really a major issue.

Stayed November 2013, traveled as a couple

When I arrived late afternoon the parking area, at the back of the hotel down a narrow bumpy lane, was closed - phoned to get access OK. The window in front rooms fit very badly and let in the drafts and traffic noise - heating in the room was very poor - given an extra electric heater so managed to keep warm. They insist on being paid by cash to safe card fees. Decor getting tired in general and around shower was very bad. Overall not the experience I was expecting from a hotel that had in previous years been given a recommended rating.

Room Tip: Not one at the front of the hotel till they get the windows fixed.

We are 5 mature couples that meet in Northampton every year,this is the first time we have stayed at the Langham Hotel and all 5 couples will be happy to go back again next year -we found staff friendly and helpful booking our taxis to take us to town - the rooms clean and adequate for our needs -the breakfast 2nd to none the drive round to the car park could do with sorting out but other than that none of our party had any complaints

Clean and tidy, breakfast is plenty and fresh, good hosts, near the local town, has good parking facilities. Would return if or when I'm back in Northampton. So overall a well run and happy family hotel.

Absolutely disgusted with lack of communication from all staff at this hotel. Money taken from our account after we left the hotel. After finally being able to track down the manager was advised it was due to a damaged wardrobe. Asked which room as we booked 4 the room number they gave was NOT one we accommodated. They said room 15 we where in room 16 which my 60 year old mother-in-law accomodated. We sent proof of our receipt confirming the rooms we where in and they have not had the decency to acknowledge our emails or return my calls. When I ring told not available. I wonder how many other people they have conned. Stayed at this hotel for a family wedding, would not recommend at all.
ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING AND APPALING CUSTOMER SERVICE

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else your you could also be conned out of money

The Langham is a family run hotel/guest house which is larger than it initially appears. We stayed here in early August as we were attending a wedding in town. We were greeted by the lovely and Mary who booked us in. I asked if some friends could join us in our room to get changed. This was no problem. I explained we were a little short of time and asked for directions to the wedding venue which Mary gave us, telling us we would easily make it in time as "it only takes me 10 minutes...and I'm 75!!!"
The room was quite small and the decor a little tired but it was clean and we knew we wouldn't be spending a lot of time in there so this wasn't a problem.
The outside temperature was 30 degrees so without air con the room was obviously quite hot. This is not a complaint and I would have been surprised if it had been cool!
In the morning we headed down for breakfast and I wondered if the previous reviewers' comments about the large portions had been exaggerated... they had not! I didn't need to eat for the rest of the day!!
The Langham hotel suited our needs perfectly and, at around HALF the price of some of the larger 'budget' hotels in the town centre, was excellent value - under £45 for two of us including a very hearty breakfast.
Highly recommended.

Excellent service in the bar, was only there for a couple of hours buying drinks and was given free bags of crisps and nuts. Lovely welcome and perfect room to stay over night in. Would recommend to anyone
