I regularly stay at this hotel because it is convenient for work. This hotel is getting worse with each stay and I am now at the point that I will stay elsewhere.
on arrival you are met by a totally dysfunctional space which is a combined bar and reception area. On this trip the lift wasn't working so I had to make my way up to the second floor up the thread bare carpeted stairwell. No hint of offers of help.No problem for me, but it was for others in my party who had recent surgery. When asked for help the member of staff asked which case does he want her to take, which one? really? ! He then deposited the cases at the top of the stairs and cleared off.!!
The room was made up of a collection of battered furniture from the 1970s. Whilst the bed was comfortable, the whole room was pretty uninspiring.
Having experienced the delights of the restaurant on earlier visits I ate out but had to endure the rubber egg breakfast and staff who whilst serving you were to busy babbling to their friends in a foreign language. I particularly enjoyed the fact that they used the space ( less than 1 m from my table) as a place to dump all the dirty dishes as they cleared table. Made for a really pleasant breakfast...not
We use this hotel for our clients when training and despite complaints in the past they seem unwilling or unable to improve. To add insult to injury on checking my IHG account they have registered the stay but allocated no points to my stay!!
This is, by a good country mile, the worse IHG hotel I have ever stayed in and deserves its nickname at work as the Holiday Grim

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bf88 Poor Hotel, Old and Needing Some TLC
Right? Where do I start?
I visited the Corby Holiday Inn for a recent business trip to the area.
The general hotel, was fairly clean in some areas but the decoration was in my eyes a little shabby to say the least. The whole hotel looked haggard and run down and hadn't looked like it had been looked after or renovated by Holiday Inn for some years.
I chose the bar menu as the restaurant from memory didn't open until 7 pm. The bar staff were extremely helpful but the food was not great. I chose the burger and wish I hadn't the serving was quite small and the burger its self was cremated.
Room was extremely old in decoration, The bed was far too bouncy for my personal preference so a good nights sleep was not an option. The bathroom was so dated I couldn't believe it. The use of the shower and i use the word "use" lightly was some what desired. It felt like it needed a deep clean. Personally I couldn't wait to get out of the bathroom. The general room cleanliness was poor but I think there is only so much a cleaner can do with such an old looking room.
I have stayed in a lot of holiday inn and holiday inn express for business and this is the worst. I wont be staying at the Corby hotel again unless its completely renovated and the price per night is looked at. I think you cant go wrong with the Holiday inn express in Kettering if you can travel that little longer by far the best IHG hotel in the area.
Sorry Corby, not good enough...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Slightly dated, shame about the fire alarm
The rooms are a good size, I had a double bed this time instead of a single which made the stay better. The bathrooms are in need of a revamp. Walk in showers instead of the tired fake marble fixtures and dreary shower curtain would be better.
Being in Corby for work and an implementation, we were all working long hours and after getting in at 1am and hoping not to get up until 6am to go back to work, We found ourselves all stood outside at 4am thanks to someone smoking inside and setting the fire alarms off. I was told it was someone who worked there.
Early wake up calls aside, the hotel is good, but needs updating. Both in the rooms and the public areas, it would be nice not to feel like your sat in reception whilst at the bar.
Don't get a room above the pool, your air con will need to be on overtime.

Had to stay in the area for an athletics match and looked for something not too expensive and comfortable near to the track.
Having stayed here before decided it was very handy place to stay.
I was astonished at the improvements that have been made and how friendly and helpful the staff were. The dinner and breakfasts were aas good as any I have had in hotels, and the early morning swim was a great reviver.
Great place to stopover.

I couldn't find any faults with my stay in your hotel and was very happy with my stay. The service was 5*! This was our 1st night in Holiday Inn but we will definitely be staying again!

I very much enjoyed my short break at the Corby Kettering Holiday Inn, staff were courteous and very happy to help. Breakfast wonderful and a big bonus for me was access to the swimming pool. The hotel was just 20 minutes away from Kettering conference centre.

the staff are great and very helpful, but they are working with a hotel in a poor condition that needs renovation.
