Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Blown away
I stayed here on a Sunday because it was cheap and convenient, I shared a room with my wife and two children and in all honesty I cannot believe how good it was.
As a business an I stay in a lot of hotels and expected very little from a chain hotel but there was not one feature that let this stay down.

We were travelling south and this hotel was just where we wanted to be overnight.We found the hotel with no problem,parking was easy,girls at the front desk were very charming and agreeable.Cleanliness and main facilities excellent apart from finding empty box of tissues and only 2 sachets of coffee-it would have been nice to have had a coffee prior to bed and also on 1st waking in the morning!
Breakfast offered a good choice and found to be excellent for our needs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Rocker Practical & Great Location
Perfectly sited for going either north or south (Birmingham is less than an hour and London just over an hour) this hotel provides comfort, practicality and a touch of luxury at a reasonable price. Good safe car parking, very easy access (60 seconds) off the M1 and yet providing a qiuet nights sleep, this is a great hotel for business. Evening meals are high standard and breakfast is a self service grab n go type of operation rather than the usual table service (and associated waiting around on busy days). Have used this twice for business recently and had a great night's sleep both times

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barbie60 Always a Pleasure
Have stayed here on several occasions over the past 3 years whilst bowling in Northampton. Always a pleasure, very comfortable rooms, great customer service, always able to relax following a meal. Only criticism is that there is nothing to do in the bar area except watch tv, there used to be a pool table which, this year, has been taken out. Maybe consideration should be given to having it put back in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SIR BUCKY All that is expected from a good hotel
Arrived at Hotel at night. Looked rather big with attractive lighting.On arrival at the Hotel i was warmly welcomed by some nice reception staff. Engaged in light discussion., Room presentable and clean with modern decor. Fully equipped to meet all my needs.. A bit pricy for a hotel without a gym but i presume other hotel prices may have been simliar. Breakfast was okay but fairly basic but as an express hotel should have been expected.so adequate for needs

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mattb1965 First time, great value
We were traveling between Birmingham and Cambridge and needed somewhere to stop on the way. I'd never previously considered staying at a Holiday Inn Express, primarily because I thought they were too expensive. So when I found the hotel in Northampton, at the same price as a competitor but with included breakfast, I thought we'd give it a try. And we were impressed! The hotel was clean throughout, the room was comfortable, and the breakfast good value. We'll definitely consider staying again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ED Doc Noisy night
I use this hotel for when I'm on call at the local hospital. When I booked I asked for a quiet room which I reaffirmed at check in. However, the opposite was found. The window wouldn't close properly making the room cold & meant traffic noise from the M1disturbed my sleep. I overcame this by using cardboard to keep the window closed tight. Saturday night had revellers coming in from 0130 to 0330 shouting & slamming doors. This has meant I have not slept properly all weekend.
This is the 4th time I've stayed here and would otherwise recommend staying here as the rooms are clean & comfortable. Breakfast is limited but edible.
Maybe if the hotel had given me what I had asked for then they would of received a better review.

We were in the area visiting family who don't have spare beds, and have previously stayed with a competitor however never again! Your overall cost is much better not to mention the 5 star standard of accomodation and service, we were very happy with our stay and will be back. We have actually decided to have a once a month weekend away in a Holiday Inn Express with our daughter and son in law as we enjoyed the experience so much.

Much better than we could expect for a motorway hotel. No noise, good size room with tea making, good choice for breakfast.

We used the Holiday Inn Express for the first time for an overnight stay whilst visiting family. The room was clean and very comfortable. Our two young children enjoyed their stay and we all enjoyed the breakfast. We will definitely stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kp67 Showers
I have stayed at this hotel several times in the last year and have ended up in different rooms but one thing that is in common with all the rooms is the poor shower system. The water seems to pulsate between very hot and very cold - there never seems to be a smooth flow of desired temperature. PLEASE fix the shower system throughout the hotel.

Acceptable quality accommodation for the cost. However the restaurant is very poor value and the food of low quality. Bar tariff also expensive.

As soon as I arrived (to a free spacious car park) and went in to the hotel, the man behind the desk was just so welcoming and friendly. It set me off to such a positive start to my stay and evening. The room was relaxing and I will definitely be visiting again

No restaurant that was mentioned in description only harvester across road ( not recommended ) . Breakfast was just about edible but forget the hot items that have been cooked and kept too long . No staff at breakfast you have do it yourself . Otherwise a pleasant stay .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rainbowman Great value
Owing to the weather situation we decided to travel a day earlier. However we needed to find somewhere to stay as relatives were not able to accommodate us for the extra night. We were pleasantly surprised at the good value for this late booking. Excellent overall experience. If we had stayed more nights we would have been looking for a king size bed or twin beds.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reb13 Stopover for a wedding
We needed somewhere to stay to attend a family wedding party. The Holiday Inn provided the perfect place. Ourselves, and family members (occupying 5 rooms between us) all had nice rooms, lovely bedding, clean shower rooms, nice service from the bar and a good breakfast. This hotel was consistent with its brand and provided an economic and good quality overnight experience. You couldn't ask for more for the price.

Efficient staff, good value and clean and watched Match of the Day when Liverpool beat Spurs. Not a great nights sleep but probably because had eaten too much during the day and went to Harvester. Overall very clean and nice room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by patsexperience shame about the room cleanliness
Reception staff were excellent, but the room had not been cleaned very well. There was an empty grape stalk under the desk and crumbs around the TV. The reception staff were very helpful. The breakfast was let down by the fact there was no scrambled egg, we had to ask for it and by the time it arrived we had eaten our sausage and beans, not exactly an English breakfast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stokies Friendly Staff
This was our first stay at Holiday Inn and it was very favourable. The room was spacious, clean & the bed very comfy. The staff were friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was good and plentiful.
The only criticism we have is that our room was on the third floor and the noise from what we presume was the air conditioning units on the roof was loud during the night which did disturb our sleep. However we would stay again but would avoid floor 3!

This was our first stay at this new hotel and it was enjoyable from start to finish , welcomed by friendly staff who were helpful throughout. The rooms looked great the entrance hall bar and restaurant well looked after making our experience overall very good. Would recommend it although it is as the trend these days near to major junctions for motorway exits noise was low and slept like the proverbial.
