“Great food, very friendly!”
Reviewed 23 August 2011

We had been to Silverstone for the day and had decided last thing to stay over and found The Walnut Inn had reduced prices for the Sunday night. Comfortable and clean room (except for the trains!) good food and very friendly staff.

Room Tip: We stayed at the front which was near the railway track so ask for a room at the rear of the hotel.

I have eaten there several times with family and friends who live nearby and have never been disappointed. Food is almost always first class and fairly priced.

Hot breakfast is included and cooked to order.

We asked for a room on the back side of the hotel to ensure we were not disturbed by trains and were initially placed in a room whose window was immediately over two large kitchen exhaust fans. No air conditioning so in the night we had to open the window as the room was getting stuffy......the fans were loud and smelly and ran all night.

The staff was happy to move us to a different room the next day. So don't stay in room 10.

We must be spoiled by American beds because we found theirs to be small and hard with very thin mattresses. We hoped the change of rooms might have given us a better bed but no such luck.

This place is also a local pub so good beer and company if you desire.

No gym, pool or elevator and no offer to help with our bags.

An amazing find, although we only stayed the one night, we wished it had been more. The room was very comfortable, food amazing and service very professional and, most importantly, friendly. In addition, the building was so atmospheric, but bright and airy with all mod cons.

We stayed for two nights whilst visiting Althorp House and found the hotel very welcoming for a short stay. The room we stayed in was clean and of a good standard.The food was good in the bar which also had a good atmosphere with live music later in the night.One big disadvantage is the noise from the main line railway some 30 meters away.Although no trains passed after 11:30 pm, but resumed again at 06:30am.

Room Tip: Get one at the rear of hotel if possible

Called in on what was obviously a pretty quiet lunchtime. We were there before 1200 and were warned that food wasn't served until then, but our order was taken at once and came out pretty much on the stroke of noon.

We both went for the 3 courses for 12.95 - sensible portions of good quality, rather than huge plates of cheap junk. Ice creams are very worth going for.

We live too close to stay here, but would take friends there to eat again for sure. Shame we can't review this as a restaurant, rather than as a hotel, but hope it helps future visitors anyway.

Reviewed 26 June 2011

stayed here as part of a business trip. The hotel was arranged by the organisation I was visiting. The only problem with this hotel is that it is opposite the West coast main line and Virgin Pendolino trains shoot past at 125 MPH all night long. Very disturbing on the first night but after that I got more used to it.
The hotel itself is lovely. Staff are great, the bar is superb and I found the locals excellent company. If pushed I would say the service is a little slow but the food is of an excellent standard and worth the wait.
The nearby Grand Union Canal is an excellent local feature, and I enjoyed a walk along the tow path as I explored on a sunny evening.

Room Tip: the room at the back of the hotel is much quieter.
