The Express by Holiday Inn, Northampton is a great example of modern out-of-town budget hotels. It is well presented, refurbished in 2007/8. The rooms are a good size and clean. Beds were comfortable. Furnishings are minimal but quite adequate -- TV, hairdryer, phone, ample hanging space, no drawers but plenty of shelf & desk space. The shower room is simple but functional and the plumbing worked fine. Room rate includes a self-service continental breakfast. The breakfast serving area is a bit cramped but quite OK, and the seating area is spacious with plenty of tables. When we were there the hotel was busy but noise was not a significant problem. The hotel is situated right off the M1 motorway at J15. There is oodles of parking, but it is a 15 minute drive into Northampton. There is a Harvester family restaurant opposite the hotel but not much else on site.
The bottom line is the excellent low room rate. Hard to beat for value and ideal for families on a budget. Perfect for a short stay.
