Travellers' Choice
When my family bought the Hopping Hare in 2006 our aim was to create an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, somewhere just a bit different. A place to dine, stay or meet up and relax with friends, family or colleagues. We didn't want it to be stuffy, intimidating or over the top. We set about creating luxurious rooms, a subtle, sophisticated bar with a great selection of quality drinks and a restaurant offering some of the best food to be found in Northampton. As a family owned and operated business, we set the standards on service, value for money, atmosphere and personality. No detail has been overlooked in creating a hotel, restaurant and bar in Northampton with an individual blend of 21st-century chic, high standards and a laid back friendly feel that we are sure you'll begin to notice as soon as you step inside. We've got to know some of our guests well because they come back time after time. In fact, 2010 saw the completion of an extension to the hotel to meet increased demand for accommodation from a growing clientele. My team and I would love to welcome you to stay for brunch, lunch, dinner or just a drink. Once the Hopping Hare is on your radar we guarantee you'll be back. David George, General Manager

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent and friendly staff. Fantastic food cooked by great chefs. The poached eggs are the best in the UK! Everything cooked perfectly. Rooms are nice. Parking is ample. Beds are comfy as are the pillows. I would definitely recommend a visit to this family owned hotel.

Stayed here for the weekend whilst attending a family wedding. The hotel is excellent, lovely, well appointed rooms and great service. Ate of Friday in the restaurant where the food and service were of the highest standard. Breakfast both days was also extremely good. Staff are to be complemented on their customer service. All,in all a great two night stay in this hotel.

A lovely hotel, with very welcoming and friendly staff. The booking process was straightforward and the hotel was accommodating when our requirements changed. The rooms were comfortable and well decorated, with thought given to the facilities provided. Breakfast was very good and our dinner in the restaurant was excellent. If we visit the area again, this will definitely be our first choice of hotel.

I have eaten lunch/dinner here, and on both occassions the waiting staff and chef were happy to ensure that I had good food that wouldn't make me ill. The breakfast was superb - on both mornings I had a cheese and mushroom omlette that was fluffy, and stuffed full of delicious mushrooms and cheese.

Generous size room, immaculately clean although could benefit from new curtains. Outstanding restaurant with great selection of quality dishes. Pork loin with Hispi cabbage was fantastic, as was the Lemon Tart desert. Good value. Location not the best.

We stayed here for one night. The room was large and the bed very comfortable breakfast was included in the price which was good as well. We had dinner in the pub restaurant and again the food was good. We went to a rugby game and it was about half an hours walk to the ground. There was plenty of parking. The whole stay was excellent value.
