Don't be put off by the location of this excellent hotel/restaurant. (on a housing estate) We stayed overnight following a visit to Althorp which is close by. Our room was large, comfortable and clean. Our evening meal was excellent, high quality restaurant standard and not overly expensive. The full English breakfast was also very good. My only slight criticism would be the lack of choice for a continental breakfast. There is a 'granola pot' on the main menu but the buffet consisted of some individual packets of cereal.

Stayed: August 2018

Dear Erica,

Many thanks for your review and I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Excellent quality food (we have 2 AA Rosettes) at great value prices, alongside excellent customer service are our highest priorities.

The Hopping Hare was formerly a manor house and the surrounding land was developed for private housing in the 1960s, but set back from the A428 we are conveniently situated between the town centre and country villages.

We will review the continental breakfast choices.

We hope you can stay with us again, kind regards, David.

I stay in a lot of hotels, for both work and pleasure, and can honestly say this was the best nights sleep I have ever had in a hotel! The room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The only bad comment was we were only give one large towel to share between us.
A beautiful full English breakfast, toast and endless drinks set us up for the day, and I couldn’t fault a thing.
We didn’t eat in the restaurant in the evening, but wish we had because the food smelt delicious!

We will definitely be stay here again!

Dear Vanessa,

Many thanks for your kind review and I am really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Many apologies for the towel mistake. There should be 2 in every room and I will follow up on this.

We are very much looking forward to your next visit.

Kind regards, David.

Went for dinner Bank Holiday Monday and had a lovely meal. Great food, good service not a huge variety but food we cooked to perfection. My only comment would be that it was a little unbalanced as not many vegetables but alot of meat still thoroughly enjoyed
