Stayed here for one night before doing a Red Letter Wacky Races day. Chose it as different to all the main stream chain hotels in the area.
We received a warm welcome. Happy with the room. Had dinner in the bar as sadly restaurant full. Really enjoyed the butternut squash and oat fritters and my partner enjoyed his burger. Staff friendly and attentive.
Breakfast was also enjoyable. Both had the full English. Was room for a little more organisation due to not enough tables so people waiting and two staff trying to do ten things at once, but full marks for effort.
My main negative feedback, and quite important, is my poor quality of sleep. We were in room 104 (if I recall correctly) which must be over the front internal door. All I could hear is the constant banging of it which seemed to rattle through the radiator. This went on until midnight and woke me up again around 7.30am. If this door could be prevented from banging (then bouncing a few more times after), it would have been a very enjoyable stay.
- 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.
