Stayed here at the beginning of October, arrival was fine the hotel looks good from outside with ample parking. Check-in was courteous and efficient, but unfortunately it all went downhill from there. The building internally is so very tired, the corridors are depressing and tatty. I got upgraded to an exec room due to my Rewards status but the room whilst large, was tired and badly in need of a refit. The furniture was damaged and scratched and the bathroom archaic and smelling of damp. The shower had no pressure and I gave up and had a bath each day instead. No towel rails and a shaving mirror that was falling off the wall.
Due to long working days, I ate on each of my three nights in the restaurant. Service was erratic with a long wait to take an order then main course arriving immediately after the starter was cleared. Waiting staff were in the main terse, abrupt and unfriendly. Breakfast service was not much better.
I am just starting a new two year project in the Kettering area and am looking for a hotel in the area to stay at regularly, I have just spent three years each at the HI Derby/Nottingham and more latterly at the the HI Leeds Wakefield. Corby has a lot to learn from both of these, and I will not be returning there based on this experience.
