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.

Hotel's Favourite

Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by Claire and Kieran, both of whom exuded genuine hospitality. The modern and fresh design of the rooms left a lasting impression, and the bathroom, complete with a bath, shower, and an impressively spacious sink, exceeded our expectations.

The bed was exceptionally comfortable, and the pillows were so inviting that I contemplated buying them! This establishment offers an executive-level experience at an incredibly affordable cost.

Our dining experience was elevated by the impeccable service provided by Callum. His attentiveness and willingness to go above and beyond made us feel like VIPs throughout our stay. Gema, who worked at the bar and restaurant, was equally outstanding, and we developed a fondness for her hospitality.

While our experience was nearly flawless, we couldn't help but think that the Best Western Corby could potentially increase their revenue by expanding their selection of bar snacks, especially in the chocolate department. I would gladly spend more on indulgent options if they were available.

In summary, this establishment is an absolute gem. From the welcoming staff to the delectable menu options, our stay was marked by excellence. Personally, I have a penchant for pies, and the ones served here were simply exceptional. The pork and fish dishes were equally outstanding, a testament to the culinary skill of the chef. Kudos!

To sum it up, this place offers great food, exceptional service, well-appointed rooms, a convenient location, and a fantastic dining experience. Thank you for making our stay memorable!

Sincerely,
Lee - The Pie Man

Took my family away for a couple couple nights, my dad has special needs and the staff catered this wonderfully, speaking clearly to him and keeping eye on him as he wonders off and cannot tell us, this really reassured my mum that he was safe. The hotel itself I'd close to a spoons pub, Greg's, domino's and aldi which was great for food in. We had food at the restaurant and rhe started portions were brilliant, good size! And good pub/homey food! The eggs were also cooked perfectly at rhe breakfast each day. Was a great stay , thank you

Room was ok but many cobwebs in corners otherwise clean.
The receptionist was very polite and helpful. Breakfast, as we knew, was a doggy bag but would have been nicer if it included a sandwhich and a nicer drink rather thank kiddies orange juice, not fresh

Dear Lee Thank you for your review, I am sorry there was a small issue with cobwebs. We will take on-board your comments regarding our breakfast "Grab and Go Bag" regarding a sandwich being inclusive, the orange juice is a carton of Fresh Orange Juice so I am unsure what you received as a kiddies orange juice, Kindest Regards

Room is a badly refurbished effort, with dismal lighting in the bathroom, a dirty desk and a dirty carpet (put suitcase on floor, picked it up and it was covered in crap) pillows inexplicitly on the floor instead of on the bed, and the filthiest TV remote ever, although on the plus side it is quite spacious.

Food is supposed to be served until 9pm, but when I tried to order food at 855pm the barman had to check if it was okay with the chef, which it was, although I wish now that he had said it was too late!

I’m actually sat in the bar right now picking away at my appallingly presented and quite dubious Caesar Salad, the water-marked silver rimmed plate on which it has been served is plastered in very visible fingerprints which put me off eating it from the start, plus my side order of garlic bread just looks like a very half-hearted attempt and tastes like it has been fried, and with no garlic that I could taste.

Just awful. Never again. Don’t understand how this place can have such a good rating overall.

Our experience at Best Western Rockingham Forest Hotel in Corby was a ‘masterclass' in modern hotel accommodation, arrived late 28th Aug21. Standard double room with a huge extra large king size bed, massive Samsung curved TV and most importantly a refreshing power shower. The only issue there was the bathroom sink tap which didn’t work (so no hot or cold water) but this was quickly resolved when a man attended with an Allen key to tighten the fitting and it worked perfectly thereafter a very comfortable night's sleep.

The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was lovely with a decent range of options for breakfast. The hotel is let down however by it's tired and tatty rooms that require some TLC (cracked floor tiles, holes in doors from missing hooks, algae/mould between bathroom tiles, stained carpets etc). Whilst still functional and comfortable the rooms come nowhere near justifying the £100 a night charge. The prices need to reflect the quality of the rooms, so should either be lowered or the rooms receive the work they require to raise them to a standard worthy of the charges.

I had to ask for heating to be put on during the day as apparently it is on timer, my husband and I were freezing sat in the room, the aerial for TV was blown off on Sunday and we left on Wednesday it was still not fixed, the weather had subsided but still not repaired. On one occasion i went to reception to ask to borrow a pen, there were 2 ladies sat behind reception, so i went to nearest one, she totally ignored me when i asked and the one at the other end of reception was extremely nice and came over, but i was not happy at being ignored by this person, surely customer service is paramount to repeat business. We have stay here many times and yes we would probably stay here again but only due to it's location.

For the price it exceeded our expectations. It's clean, great towels, loads of hot water, GREAT staff. Breakfast was excellent (and this was with less than normal due to Covid) and staff were very accommodating for requests i.e. poached rather than fried eggs. If you area light sleeper request a room not facing the road. It made no difference to most of us but one of us re-located. From then all was spot on.

Had a lovely stay overall, with a toddler, room clean big had everything needed. Staff helpful breakfast great, nice outside space. very child friendly.

My two downers on the hotel, i had a front located room and the road traffic as had to have window open due to our temperature and it disturbed our sleep not just cars but lorries at all hours.
Room service for evening meal was poor i know strange times but i had fish and chips had no sauces salt pepper etc and the fish was well overcooked and poor to eat, the other food was all tasty though! Breakfast was brilliant, well cooked etc.

most important all Covid safe
