We all know you get what you get what you pay for. For sub £50, what do you expect?
Clean - YES.
Tidy - YES.
Decent bed - YES. (bit soft for me but ok
Decent shower - YES

We didn't try the Indian restaurant that is attached, as we were meeting up with family elsewhere.

The local Premier Inn wanted £90, this was SO much cheaper and the same quality

We will be going back

Have left revues a couple of time previously, but felt I should leave another
I have been staying here on and off for over five years, and bump into many regulars each time I stay.
Location is excellent when working in Corby. Always wquiet in the evening so can get a good nights sleep, the WiFi is excellent for getting work done etc
Its a budget hotel, that I have always found clean and the staff friendly.
The main highlight has to be The Gurkha next door, you will get some of the best Nepalese food in the country for the price.

Room Tip: Bear in mind this was originally a Travelodge, if your happy with a good price no frills hotel with...

Just stayed here for 1 night..... thank god it was only for 1 night!! We checked in which was fine, on entering the room we used the toilet..... then discovered it took 8 mins before it could be flushed again. Contacted the lady who was on reception with our concerns she came to the room and told us we would just have to be patient and wait for however long the cistern took to refill.!! This is where this lady became extremely defensive and quite angry firstly saying it was how the pressure was between 12 and 3 pm, we were told all the rooms were like this and I was being unreasonable....... i suggested that if there was a problem with pressure they should put it on their website so that people can make an informed decision as to whether to stay there or not. At this point she got very angry... The end result was she rang our room and basically told us to leave!! Had our money been refunded i would have gladly done this but I was told that was not going to happen.... so we stayed. The bed was comfy and that is about the only good point i can make!! The rooms need up dating the bathroom is tired and patched up... poorly. The chair in the room was badly stained with god knows what!! Two of the pillows were fine they had protectors on however the other two were really old and thin with no protectors on, the radiator in the bathroon is rusty. Also when we booked this room it said HURRY ONLY 2 LEFT.......... there was my husband and myself staying there and we did not see one other person...... I think that speaks volumes. You can stay in a Premier Inn or the Holiday Express 5 mins away for £5 more, I know where we will be staying next time!!!!! OH and when we were leaving we did manage to speak to the manager..... he was just not interested and suggested that we get in touch with booking. com where we made the booking..... this i will be doing. Avoid this hotel at all costs!!!!!!!

Room Tip: there isnt one!

Worst hotel I have ever stayed in ever!! Staff were unfriendly... The place stunk... The pillows were yellow!

We were charged for a breakfast we never ordered... And the money was taken out of my account without permission!

This place wants shutting down and replacing with a decent, friendly hotel...

A lovely warm welcome, clean rooms, great location, free Wifi for unlimited devices with very good speeds, controllable heating and best of all, the most fantastic Gurkha restaurant with the nicest manager imaginable! Would definitely recommend staying here if you're on a budget. Don't expect the Ritz, but you definitely get what you pay for here.

I needed a low cost room at short notice and wasn't expecting anything great. How wrong I was. The room was a good size, all the required amenities (including free wifi), clean and in very good order. Excellent value for a short, trouble-free business stay.
