Holiday Inn Express Kettering
Ranked #3 of 7 Hotels in Kettering
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 29, 2013

I enjoyed my three nights stay here. The hotel staff were friendly welcome and accommodating even though they were busy as there was a large group of us here with work.

The hotel is quite new I believe, was very clean and the rooms modern, big comfy beds and nice sized bathroom.

Having never stayed in a Holiday Inn this hotel gives a great impression of the brand and I'd take a look at them again in the future.

Friendly staff, attractive bar/breakfast area and clean modern design. As with all Holiday Inn Express hotels the hot breakfast is a little limited, especially for vegetarians. I was told that real ale (in bottles) would be coming soon, which would be welcome - Premier Inn does usually stock this.

Clean, reasonable sized room, with wi-fi and comfortable beds.

Good sized bathroom, with decent power shower.

Hotel staff were pleasant and helpful.

Selection for breakfast,was limited but you could return for more.

Overall for the price, a nice clean room with a comfy bed.

You get what you pay for and for what we paid it was ok, but there are little things that make a difference. The map link wouldn't work on an android phone, the location was wrong on trip advisor and the postcode was not recognised by the SatNav so we had to phone the hotel to find out where they were - advice given as outskirts of Kettering on the right, the most helpful piece of advice would have been 'you have to turn left at the traffic lights to go right' so we were then stuck in the roadworks all the way to Corby to turn around and come back. Poor service

Thank you Jinxs67 for writing this review of the hotel. I am sorry to hear that the directions given over the phone did not specify were to turn to get to the hotel. I have fed back this information to the team to ensure that more explicit instructions are given in the future. Unfortunately, as the hotel is relatively new, the post code is not recognised by all Sat Nav systems but hopefully in time this will improve.
Hopefully this issue has will not deter you from returning to the hotel in the future.
Kindest regards,
Marie Nickerson

Stayed over here on a business trip, comfortable bed, nice clean room, friendly staff! It was a decent stop over point, easy to get in and out, no problems with the room. but breakfast was awful.

I guess thats the only thing that let them down, staff are nice and friendly

Stayed here for one night in February 2013. Check-in was quick and easy and receptionist was friendly and helpful.
Room was standard HIE with plenty of space. TV remote control didn't work, but was fixed by reception in 10 minutes.
Breakfast was also standard HIE quality and the dining room overlooked fields. The re is a Harvester conveniently located next door, but it was very busy on Saturday, so suggest making booking if you want to eat there.

Would definitely stay there again.
