I am a business traveller mainly and don't like business hotels. However, I still need certain criteria when I am staying. Mainly comfortable and clean room with attention to detail, good sized bathroom, Wi-Fi and (as a lone female traveller) a sense of security and helpful staff.
Although this is essentially a pub with rooms, it is so much more. It's a beautiful building and is furnished inside to the highest standard - treading that difficult line between modern and maintaining it's traditional pub feel. I arrived late so didn't get to sample the dinner menu but I am sure it was lovely, it certainly looked it. Staff were helpful.
The room itself was a good size with lovely big windows. Good choice of TV channels (essential) and the most comfortable bed imaginable. Great sized bathroom and spotlessly clean. Contemporary furnishings and to a high standard.
Breakfast was a relaxed and delicious affair and all for £85 b and b.
I hope I will get the chance to stay again!.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- When my family bought the Hopping Hare in 2006 our aim was to create an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, somewhere just a bit different. A place to dine, stay or meet up and relax with friends, family or colleagues. We didn't want it to be stuffy, intimidating or over the top. We set about creating luxurious rooms, a subtle, sophisticated bar with a great selection of quality drinks and a restaurant offering some of the best food to be found in Northampton. As a family owned and operated business, we set the standards on service, value for money, atmosphere and personality. No detail has been overlooked in creating a hotel, restaurant and bar in Northampton with an individual blend of 21st-century chic, high standards and a laid back friendly feel that we are sure you'll begin to notice as soon as you step inside. We've got to know some of our guests well because they come back time after time. In fact, 2010 saw the completion of an extension to the hotel to meet increased demand for accommodation from a growing clientele. My team and I would love to welcome you to stay for brunch, lunch, dinner or just a drink. Once the Hopping Hare is on your radar we guarantee you'll be back.
