Stayed at this Premier Inn for one night to attend a meeting, I use Premier Inn's about 30 weeks of the year, so have been in many to compare. I was simply amazed at the size of the room upon entering, it was tiny, although had all the usual furniture associated with the normal sized Premier Inn rooms. I then looked into the bathroom and was gob smacked at how they had managed to fit a bath, hand basin, and toilet into such a small space. Upon closer inspection I found that the bath was only suitable for someone no taller than about 4 feet in height. I am only 5'7" but had to sit up in the bath. The whole hotel, and particularly the rooms, are looking very tired, and badly overdue a complete re-fit in order to bring them up to the usual Premier Inn standard.
In short, there are plenty of other hotels around the Northampton area, so I would certainly not book this one again.
The attached Beefeater restaurant, was a train crash, four of us went there in the evening for a drink, only to find they had ran out of beer, only one draft bitter, and bottled beers were available. This can only be put down to the usual poor management of these Whitbread restaurants.
My advice is to avoid this hotel at all costs.
