Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rachelswim14 Excellent all round
stayed one night for a Swimming gala in Corby. 10 mins from the pool, excellent facilities could not be faulted, everything you need TV, free Wi fi , etc. Had a meal in Harvester just a stroll away, very busy but came back for a drink in the very calm air conditioned bar.
Would definitely return, excellent value for money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MsKMC One nights stay
Clean comfortable room and very friendly, helpful employees. Only negative is that the rooms do not have a plug socket near the bed. Only able to plug in my phone charger and laptop on the other side of the room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Slacy Decent, but the bed was uncomfortable
My wife and I stayed here for an overnight getaway. The room was clean and reasonably well designed. It was also spacious. However, the bed was rather uncomfortable. The mattress sagged in the middle and we rolled into one another all night. Because of the mattress, I would be hesitant to stay here again, despite all of the positives to the property.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HungryDave Comfortable room very poor food offer
This hotel is very new and has lovely rooms and bar area, unfortunately due to the Harvester opposite Holiday Inn only offer a very small and it turns out poor selection of food.
So if your evening meal is important either go across the road or in my point of view stay somewhere else.
To add to this the hot breakfast choice is very limited and the staff struggled to keep up with the demand, leaving several customers to "make do"with a cold offer.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Unna10 Clean, comfortable, welcoming staff, breakfast awful.
Very clean and staff very made us very welcome, only disappointing thing was the hot food that was on offer was burnt. The suasages were so burnt and when asked for fresh we were ignored. Apart from that a pleasant stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DVMouse Very Good Experience
You always know what to expect...and you get it! This is what is nice about Holiday Inn Express stays: No Surprises. Which is just fine with us.
I would only suggest that they have someone watching the buffet breakfast so that they can refill the trays as needed. We did have to go and ask for paper napkins and the sausages were absent for a long time.
Otherwise, a good stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Phil56 Can see why breakfast is included
Second time of staying here. It basically does what it says on the can, but the poor range of breakfast items is something that you would want to complain about if you had paid extra for it.
Also the roads and signage outside are a complete mess. Probably not the hotel's but we ended up on a 5 mile round trip half way to Corby when all we wanted to do was cross the dual carriageway

A great central location to both Kettering & Corby.
Staff were very helpful in allowing an early check in time to to those traveling from overseas.
Bed was very comfortable.
Hotel was located far enough away from the motorway to keep traffic noise at a minimum.
Breakfast choices were adequate and provided good value for

Very comfortable hotel with friendly and smiling staff. Big letdown to our visit as no wi-fi from Friday to Sunday. I sent a complaint and have heard nothing back which does upset me.
The breakfast was great, very good choice and well stocked at all times.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rene77 Poor experience
Unfortunately our experience in Holiday Inn Kettering was not the best.
An unhelpful receptionist welcomed us by charging us for going into the room half an hour early to get changed for a wedding.
The bed was very firm and not comfortable, and the pillows weren't much better. There weren't any spares in the room.
It was impossible to do put make up on in the bathroom as the lights were above the mirror, so cast a shadow on your face.
The morning after, we came down to breafast to find several sporting teams there so the place was packed. There were only two poor serving staff trying desperately to keep crockery and food topped up, while two reception staff stood chatting to eachother behind the desk!
Overall a very poor experience - I wouldn't recommend staying here

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by OldCytringanian Spacious room and quiet location
I can recommend this Holiday Inn Express. Our room was large, bright and well appointed with a comfortable bed. The hotel is well away from the main road and is thus very quiet. Lounge is stylish and pleasant. Breakfast is poor and was below the level I have had at other hotels in this chain. Our meals at the chain restaurant nearby were abysmal and poor value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WMorris Excellent value!
We visited the Holiday Inn Express in Kettering as it was perfectly situated near Corby Tennis Centre where we were visiting.
On our arrival, the check in was really friendly and efficient and we found the room allocated to us was very comfortable and spotlessly clean.
The pullout sofa bed was however very uncomfortable and our children did not have a good night's sleep. I would highly recommend that the actual mattress within the sofa bed is changed for one of superior quality.
In the morning again staff were very friendly and helpful and the selection of food on offer was really nice. The whole stay was excellent value for money.
We will definitely book another stay again.

Lovely stay. Staff were efficient, amiable and actually looked like they enjoyed their jobs. Attentive service. Made me aware of 10% reduction on bar bill for being a priority member so I stayed at the hotel in the evening rather than visiting the pub across the road. This is the 3rd Holiday Inn Express I have stayed in since January and certainly the most welcoming ! Thank you - I shall return!

When we agreed to come down to Northamptonshire for a birthday party towards the end of March, we did not expect to be travelling in near arctic conditions. However, we did having taken advantage of a very good offer at the Kettering Holiday Inn Express. In reality, the journey was nothing like as bad as we feared setting off from the North East. On arriving at the H I Express we had a warm welcome. We had received an e-mail welcoming us the day before. The room was large and ideal for what we wanted. I especially liked the breakfast next morning. Although the croissant was rather stale everything else was fine. I have stayed in a number of Holiday Inns and have always found them good value, especially when booked some time in advance. Our journey home on Sunday was also much better than we might have expected from listening to the weather forecast. We had a good week-end

Although this is a new hotel and the area is being developed, with road works, that are not very informative, I found I had to go past the hotel several miles to turn around so that I could be on the correct side to enter, this is no fault of the hotel although I believe we could have been informed of this when we booked.
The breakfast was very poor, with no eggs or bacon, just a continental type fayre, had I have known this before booking I would have gone to another hotel that I do use in the area where I do not get charged for breakfast and I can choose to go to a local cafeteria if I want.
I like many others am English and I like to start the day right, with an English breakfast.
The staff were helpfull and polite.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrsH18a Reception staff great
Stayed here overnight to attend a wedding. Slightly amused at lack of traditional wardrobe and cupboard space but there was perfectly adequate open shelving to replace this and meet out needs. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful and provided us with detailed directions both verbally and a computer printed out to enable us to get to the wedding venue without any problem - not a small task in view of lots a road works going on around the area at the time. I had read some concerning reviews about breakfasts before booking, but there was more than adequate - cereals, baked goods, yogurt etc. The cooked choices were not up to 5 star standards but what was available was tasty and plentiful. Really good value for money and I would certainly have no hesitation in recommended this hotel.

Our stay at your hotel was lovely, made extra special by the very helpful and welcoming staff.
The hotel was very clean and had lovely rooms.
All the lift, reception bar and eating areas were very clean and well presented.
The warm side of breakfast was a little disappointing though. The sausages were not good quality and maybe it would be worth thinking about offering bacon.
Other than that, lovely hotel and we would definitely stay there again.
