Travellers' Choice
Our Northampton hotel is right in the middle of the town centre next to the Royal and Derngate Theatre. You'll find Northampton Museum and Art Gallery, NN Contemporary Art, the Guildhall and Becket's Park on the doorstep and Silverstone Citcuit a 20 minute drive away. After a busy day exploring the town and its grand architecture, make your way back to Premier Inn Northampton for dinner at Thyme, our on-site restaurant. When it's time to call it a day, relax in style in one of our new generation bedrooms featuring an impressive 40" flat screen TV, bright, modern bathroom with a large shower head and slumber-inducing, king-size bed.

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.

Unusually for Premier Inn the breakfast was abysmal. 45 mins wait for cooked to order (I don't know why they don't just do buffet) and was terrible quality when arrived. A refund was given but 45 mins wasted. Manager had poor attitude and no real explanation other than the amount of orders even though the restaurant was not busy. Young cook was obviously out of his depth, and staff giving no warning that there were delays. Get the impression just a poorly managed hotel or short staffed.

Hotel's Favourite
My husband and I had a one night stay as we’d tickets for The Royal Theatre on Saturday evening. Having booked a meal deal, the restaurant was unexpectedly busy - we were later told instead of the usual 10 or so evening meals they’d expect on a typical Saturday, they’d actually served 40. In spite of staff working really hard we decided to forego our desserts rather than be late for the theatre. As we left the restaurant, our server Leigh apologised for the delay and asked when we expected to be back. She then promised she’d sort out our desserts on our return even though the restaurant closes at 9.30pm. Off we went to the theatre and had a wonderful time. On our return at 9.45pm Leigh and her colleague Gayle were finishing up in the restaurant. While I went up to our room my husband went to see if delayed puds were indeed possible. Less than 5 minutes later I was pleasantly surprised when he arrived bearing apple pie with custard and cheesecake with ice cream! At breakfast the following morning Gayle was on duty and we could see the restaurant was very busy. She and her male colleague were again working hard to keep everything flowing but inevitably there were a few delays here and there when items needed replenishing. That said, when Gayle took our cooked breakfast order, just a short time later two very nice breakfasts cooked just as we’d requested were delivered to our table. All the staff we saw at both dinner and breakfast could not have worked harder - in fact the only chef on dinner service was an absolute blur of activity, so well done to him for what must have been quite a challenging shift. Problems arise from time to time in any organisation and it’s how these are rectified that I find telling. Gayle and Leigh certainly went the extra mile to make sure we didn’t miss out and it was greatly appreciated. Another positive experience with Premier Inns and we wouldn’t hesitate to return to this one.

I use this hotel regularly when I am in Northampton for work. I have always been warmly welcomed by the staff team and they have always made my stay as comfortable as possible. The food (and drinks!) are high quality and I have never been disappointed. Honestly, the team couldn’t do enough for me, and they are all so friendly and chatty. The location is perfect if you want to go out for dinner or drinks, and the carpark next to the hotel is great value (around a fiver for an overnight stay)

Stopped here for one night as we was going round town. The hotel was clean and the beds were comfy. It is ideally placed in the centre and very close to the Derngate. It is very quiet and didn’t hear any doors slam. We didn’t try the restaurant there.

Probably one of the worst Premier inns I’ve ever stayed in! I was here for 3 nights. The first nights sleep was terrible as there clearly was a maintenance issue with the room as the floor was shaking causing my bed to shake too keeping me up all night. I had no idea what this was and neither did the staff. When I explained the issue in the morning at reception they looked at me very confused and huffed when I wanted to be moved. Who I believe was the deputy manager made a delightful comment to me whilst alone with me in my room to check the noise that it could be the people below “having fun with their toys causing my bed to vibrate”. I very awkwardly laugh it off and hope he leaves my room very quickly. Eventually I was moved only to be put in a room below what sounded like the BFG marching around. I am away on business and am staying in many premier inns as I’m touring the country and this has to be the roughest and worst serviced one. I would avoid unless you want to be kept up all night!

Certain members of staff are rude. After a very disturbed night sleep due to neighbouring rooms shouting arguing and screaming and banging I was temporarily moved to a different room which I am very grateful for. However when asking if the room was going to be used by the same people again (the answer was yes) I asked if I could be moved as I couldn’t do another sleepless night with work the next morning, denzil - then laughed and said we’re fully booked whilst walking away. The rudeness is unacceptable. Especially after what occurred the previous night. The police should have been called. But to be LAUGHED at when asking to move rooms if they were staying there again. It’s just not acceptable.

When I arrived the man checking me in said the restaurant was open. When I went there at 7:45 I was told unless I had booked the wait would be over an hour for food as a group of people had walked in and ordered starters and mains and they didn’t want to mix the tickets up. I should add the restaurant was empty except for this group of people (8-10). I ended up with a twix bar and water from a vending machine. I didn’t order Ubereats etc, I could have done but was so tired and fed up. Bedroom was basic but clean and I had a good nights sleep when the noise stopped about midnight. Looking forward to breakfast, I was greeted by a lady who didn’t look at me. I asked if I could have a table away from a large group of children as I needed to make a business call……to be told ‘they won’t hurt you’. She waved her hand to the back of the restaurant. She seemed very distracted and I felt that I was an inconvenience. The lady that took my order was lovely and very friendly despite the fact that she was working under stressful circumstances and with a not very helpful colleague. The chef was doing his best to keep up with all the orders and the food was nice when I got the right order! Overall, a disappointing stay, one that I won’t be repeating in a hurry as there are lots of hotels to choose from in Northampton. A real pity because Premier Inns are usually pretty good bets for business trips

Just in the right location. A comfortable night's sleep, a good breakfast and the discounted 24hr car parking in the adjacent multi- storey was a bonus. All was just right with no issues whatsoever. I will choose this Premier Inn for my next visit.

Hotel is well placed for the town centre and the staff are lovely. The problem we had was our room was opposite a corridor door and it was constantly being slammed shut, the soft close appeared to not be working. The noise continued throughout the night. Complained to the staff but unfortunately there wasn’t a solution to the problem. If you don’t want this issue do not take room 201 or 202. Breakfast was cooked fresh and was nice. Ash was as helpful as he could be and did say he would report the issue.
