Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Colin15 Christmas Eve Stay
On arrivail we were given a disabled room ( a mistake by central reservations ) which we did not need but reception moved us to a regular room without any problem .We were visiting family for Christmas in Irchester and found this to be an ideal location. Breakfast was very good with friendly staff.

I have stayed at this location many times before but I have not been there for some months. Upon arrival I was greeted by Marie on reception. who recognised me immediately, remembered my name and I was delighted to be welcomed like an old friend.
Thank you again Bedford Road!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KingKev16 One night in Northampton
What can I say? I have a fantastic stay, the room (executive) was superb, beautifully furnished with lots of thoughtful touches, it was quiet, clean, comfortable and generally unlike anything else for its price that I've stayed in whilst in the UK.
I would thoroughly recommend it!

The staff and location were good. My concerns are with the bar menu and the speed of the internet. The bar menu only provides fries with the everything, "fish and fries" does not work for me. The in-room internet was very slow, I thought I was back on a "dial-up connection".

This hotel is very clean, my room was very quiet. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Everything in the room worked. You won't find a health spa, indoor pool and a 5 star restaurant but you're not paying for it either. I found it to be the perfect place for a business stay. The little full service bar is cute. I didn't sample the restaurant other than breakfast which was fine. There is also a very nice pub walking distance across the road. I highly recommend the Holiday Inn Northampton.

lovely room,very clean,only problem we had was that the beds where very hard and had a bad nights sleep as a result,the mattress was so hard i kept waking with pains in my hip from laying on my side(i have slept better on an airbed on the floor ), suffered a bad back the next day i was dissapionted as i stayed in the hotel a few miles away near j15 m1 in february and the beds where very comfortable so expected this to be the same i have family nearby so would use the hotel near m1 instead next time.

Friendly desk staff on arrival with everything waiting for me. No signing in required & welcome, as always, first class. Ordered food at the same time & within 10 minutes of being in my room, it arrived. Gave me time to settle in. Food was hot & tasty. Same with breakfast. Fast service, efficient & again tasty. Highly recommend this hotel. The best in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bigmikeh Generally good but let down by the little things
Booked an executive suite at a bargain price for a Saturday night birthday treat. Check in was friendly, and efficient. Room was as expected, very big, sofas, bath robes, etc - pity it was right next to the lifts with the constant whine of the lift motors during the day. OK at night. Might be an executive suite but you still only get minimal milk for tea and coffee!
Decided to eat in and was pleased to see a weekend special menu at a very competitive £9.95 for two courses. Meal was ok but unimaginitive and let down by the warmest, flattest pint of Becks you could imagine. Sent it back, tried Stella which was cold and sparkling albeit served in a very ordinary pint glass. If my local can always serve Stella in a smart branded glass, why can't the Holiday Inn? Wine was overpriced.
When the bill comes it had a 10% service charge added. And sure enough, there it is in tiny print on the menu. Intentionally small so it's not noticed. Yes, it is discretionary, but it should be my choice to reward good service, not have to ask for it to be removed.
Checked at the desk on the way back to the room about the complimentary movie included in the package to be met with a blank face so had to fetch my tablet computer to show her the package on the Holiday Inn website! In the end didn't watch a film anyway but nevertheless....
Thought we might open the window a bit for fresh air overnight but discovered the window was screwed shut. Tried the aircon but the noise and the rattle would have kept us awake all night.
Breakfast very good, young man in charge very efficient and on top of things. Room just big enough to cope with Sunday morning. Very pleased that breakfast is served until 11.00 am.
Enjoyed our night away but could have been better.

We stayed overnight at this hotel following a family gathering. The rooms were great, clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and efficient where nothing was too much trouble for them. Not one bad comment from any of the 7 couples in our group. We would definately use this hotel again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John1960E Reward points stay
My wife and I had a very relaxing stay using the reward points that I had built up. The room was huge being an Executive room and the large lounge area was lovely so my son and daughter joined us for a games evening around the large table.
We didn't eat at the hotel so I couldn't rate the food, the vending machine was reasonably priced.
We were made to feel welcome and we were let into the room early as it was ready when we arrived.
Thank you for a pleasant stay.

Another excellent stay further enhanced with another excellent curry. Staff as always are friendly and helpful. Not offered anything in lieu of being a platinum member other than free internet connection, don't know if anything has changed. Used the gym again, which I enjoy, however it is extremely tired and is in desperate need of updating. The cross trainer clunks when you use it, the rowing machine doesn't fell as if it has been serviced in a while and there is little space to do anything once 3 or 4 people are in the gym. Please, please, please spend some money on the gym, it would certainly enhance the overall experience for me.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mrsmole Food not Brilliant, Room Noisy
My Husband & I stayed here for 1 night on 09/10/2013 whilst on a business trip.
The Reception staff were excellent and very helpful, our room was spotlessly clean and tidy.
There was a connecting door between our room (No.19) and next door, we could here the gentleman in his room he was very noisy. (Better sound proofing required)
Our evening meal (Lasagne) was eatable but was made up with 1. layer of a Bolognaise sauce mixture and several layers of what looked like Cottage pie mixture, overall it had little taste.
The following day my husband left for a meeting and I stayed in our room until vacating at 1pm. I asked the Restaurant Manager if I could have a bowl of Soup with bread. He seemed put out and asked if I was actually staying in the Hotel. The soup (Leek and Potato) was served with 2. part-bake rolls which were really hot but not cooked properly in the middle, I had to ask for a knife and butter. The soup was extremely salty but had no other taste. I sent it back and did not pay the £5.95 bill.
We will be visiting Northampton on several occasions in the next few months but will not be staying at the this hotel again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michelle1979 Large room, comfortable beds and friendly welcoming service.
Had an excellent weekend which began with a stay at the Holiday Inn, Northampton. My young son was ill on the way to the hotel, and it being quite late on a Friday evening, we were all a little stressed when we arrived!! We were welcomed by the receptionist, who was very friendly and helpful. Our room had two double beds as I had booked quite late (and got a good deal.) The beds were very comfortable with a choice of pillows, the room was quite a lot larger than I expected, very clean and comfortable. There was a party in the restaurant area, but we were offered room service, which we didn't use as we had already eaten. Our room was very quiet, despite the party, and we all woke up feeling refreshed on Saturday morning. Breakfast was buffet style, with a large choice for myself, my partner and our 2 children. Overall, a great experience and I will definitely be booking again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Need2sleep Noisy neighbours
This was due to very noisy neighbours , which was not helped by the fact that there was a joining door .
Was woke up at 3.30 am with lots of talking and noise until 5.30 when they went to sleep
Also the taps in the bathroom were not working properly

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Als01 Friendly Staff, average Hotel
Staff are always friendly however the hotel needs to upgrade some of its in room heating as some is very old and not working properly.
Large selection on menu but food quality varies and service is slow.
Dining area and lounge area very small and sometimes difficult to find seats.

Booked in overnight as a base to stay for attending a wedding.
Friendly greeting on arrival, which carried on throughout the stay - all staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. Room clean, bed comfy with choice of pillow (firm or softer), adequate wardrobe space, tv, kettle etc. Breakfast included in our price - a good choice of hot and cold buffet.
Good value for money. Would definitely use again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daisykins A most enjoyable stay, thankyou.
Chose this hotel as it was quite close to Silverstone. Enjoyed every aspect of our stay, staff were great and food was really good! Personally I thought our bathroom could do with an upgrade-but it was more than serviceable. Will probably try to book-in for next year's MotoGP.

I stayed here with my wife and daughter, we booked a double room with breakfast, the room was very clean, and the service was very good from the reception, the hotel had a wedding on the same night, and there was no problems at all with noise, the breakfast was fantastic, much variety and plenty, the only downside i would say, was the WIFI, you had to pay, most hotels are free now,other than this, fantastic stay.
