Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by owain1 Good Overnight Stop
Hotel room was excellent and of a very high standard, Breakfast was a little difficult as I am diabetic. The only other problem was signage to the hotel, there is no sign on the turning off the roundabout ( only sign to the cycle way) We were coming from Rounds and no sign on that road either.

Stayed here several times as always a good experience. My only criticism, this goes with most HI Express, hot choices at breakfast are pretty limited.

The hotel was clean, staff were friendly. the room was pleasant. Unfortunately the bed was not very comfortable, the mattress was quite hard and dipped in the middle ,The most disappointing thing was breakfast.. The hot food especially the sausages were not edible, Croissants were so hard you could bounce them off the walls. No wonder its free no one would pay for it!!!!

A great place to stay if you're visiting Corby. Only criticism is that it's out of town and not walkable from Bus or train station. Car is really essential.

I have stayed at this hotel on 3 separate occasions and always found the staff friendly and very helpful. The rooms are comfortable and the hotel is modern and in a convenient location for meetings. It is always my first choice hotel in this location and I would recommend it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Meg100 Very friendly and helpful staff.
The staff make this hotel. They are extremely friendly and helpful. There was a relaxing feel about the reception lounge and drinks at the bar were fairly priced. Hence this was a good place to unwind. The bedroom let the hotel down as the bed sagged in the middle and was very uncomfortable. The pillows were well past their sell by date. This was a pity as the room, at the rear of the hotel, was very peaceful.

Comfortable room, but quite noisy as near the bar.
There were insufficient staff around in the evenings - reception/bar - only one person.
Cooked breakfast was identical both days - sausage, scrambled egg & baked beans - disappointing quality!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RPandya Lack of Breakfast items, Lack of towels and Lack of staff
When we arrived in our rooms there were no towels so I had to go downstairs to get the towels. In the morning at breakfast time there was no cutlery and we had to wait 12 minutes for someone to come and clean the table as all the tables had dishes on them after someone had finished their breakfast. There were no serviettes so the manager had to come over to give us the serviettes. Al this because tree was LACK of STAFF. Get some more staff or close the place down. It is giving IHG a bad name.

A good quality budget hotel with no nasty surprises as far as room and cleanliness is concerned. The only criticism I can think of is the road signs directing you to the hotel.......there are none!. The hotel is not easy to miss but it is not apparent which road you need to take to get in to it,myself and my friend both had to drive up and back down the road twice before we found our way in.other than that a great stay with a nice pub opposite that served decent food at a reasonable price.

We have stayed here a few times and the staff are always polite and helpful. The location is great especially for people bringing their dog as it backs on to Weekly Woods.
The quality of sausages served at breakfast could be improved.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reecey125 10/10
3 of us stayed over for one night for the British MotoGP round at Silverstone. Couldn't find one fault with the hotel. 10/10 for service. We got greeted as soon as we walked through the doors, headed straight up to our room and in all honesty, I was shocked at how nice it was. I could have easily mistaken it for a 5* hotel. Everything was in immaculate condition.
There is a Harvester restraunt on the same grounds as the hotel, roughly a 30second walk and you're in the doors of the Harvester.
Breakfast at 6am was outstanding, all the food was hot, all buffet style and VERY well set out. Drinks, fruit, yogurts... You name it... This place has it all. Would recommend to anyone out there wanting a cheap, outstanding hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AustinR Good hotel - great value
This has been our second overnight stay at Holiday Inn Express, Kettering. We use it when visting the birdfair at Rutland Water, which is only a short distance away. Judging by the number of hotel guests we subsequently saw at the birdfair, we weren't the only people making the same choice !
What you get with HI Express Kettering is a modern hotel, spotlessly maintained, with a proper bar and lounge area, and comfortable air conditioned rooms. There is a pub/restaurant next door where you can get meals, although snacks are also available within the hotel. The reception staff that we dealt with were both very friendly and helpful.
Where HI Express scores over its rivals is that you get a " free " breakfast included in the price of the booking. It's self serve buffet style and there is a choice of hot and cold food. Other budget hotels we have used charge extra for breakfast, and this is something you should factor in when comparing hotel costs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Helen45 Comfortable, clean and quiet
We have stayed here twice now and will do so again when we are in the area. It is good value as the rooms are a good size and have air conditioning, proper beds and a good size telly. The beds were clean and comfortable and had a choice of soft or firm pillows. It was good to have 2 pillows each. The bathroom was clean with lovely hot water. It was quiet at night. The staff were there 24 hours and were helpful and friendly. There was a good choice of breakfast. It was very convenient to have breakfast included. We were also offered free wi fi too. It had everything you could want.

When we travel Holiday Inn Express is always our first choice.
The Kettering hotel is excellent, the rooms are clean and newly furnished, and the lounge area is comfortable.. The hotel staff were extremely helpful. We could not fault this hotel.

Went around the round about a couple of times trying to figure out how to get into the hotel as it is set back off the road.
A new, modern design to this hotel, and feels very open and spacious in the lobby area when arriving.
The family room was great with both a sofa bed and travel cot ready and waiting in the room when we arrived.
Breakfast was included in the price and this was great. A choice of both cereals, hot and cold food available.
View from our room was lovely, surrounded by fields with a feeling of being out in the country.
The price of the hotel for the night was very reasonable and we enjoyed our stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mtjm Nice hotel, if a little remote
Stayed one night recently. Hotel is nice and new and well looked after. Not much around the hotel, as it is outside of town.
The only problem we had with the hotel was the breakfast. The sausages were burnt, the only fruit in the "fruit salad" was pears and the croissants were stale.
Would be excellent if the breakfast was improved.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kathyw25 Breakfast lets it down
Stayed a total of 8 nights (had to change booking a couple of times whilst we were at the hotel and this was done efficiently and correctly by helpful reception staff) room very clean and comfortable only thing that let it down was the breakfast - on every morning without fail we had to chase staff for items which needed replenishing - overall there was never more than 15-20 guests at the dining area and even though we varied the time we had breakfast each day it was the same routine of having to ask for items - felt this was unnecessary as it should be a simple enough task but half of the time the staff would disappear off into the kitchen and we would then have to ask the staff on reception.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sally1957 Friendly staff and great breakfast!
The rooms are a good size. Shower fantastic. Bed seemed small and too soft for me. Staff on check-in very friendly (about midnight, think one of the chaps was learning the system), but checked us in very quickly and gave good directions to room.
Breakfast was fantastic, more than ample for a good start for the day.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jacita Modern and clean
Extremely hard to find due to a roundabout with many traffic lights and roadworks going on. You can see it easily but getting to it another thing. Once there easy to park and well positioned and decorated rooms with good air con.
Friendly reception and bar service and great breakfast.
Ideal for those travelling with a dog which is welcome at £10 per night and open fields behind which was ideal.
Sharing the same car park is a Harvester restaurant.
Easy access to Wicksteed Park without need to go through the town.
Would definitely recommend this hotel to all age groups.
A minus was wifi (which is free)did not work in our room but could get it further down the corridor.
An unexpected plus was an ice machine.

We had just a perfect stay here - we were attending the IntSaab 2013 event in Kettering, looked around and found this Holiday Inn Express - so we booked (as many others did attending the same event) and had a wonderfull time in the hotel - clean, nice and all the basic comfort you expect !
