Stayed at the Hind for two nights recently. Always wanted to stay there ever since we lived in the area back in 80's on a working holiday. I love quirky old hotels that have character much better than formula brand hotels. My room was big with a good sized bathroom and adequate hanging space and free wifi. Staff very helpful in carrying my bag up to my room, a little bit noisy. You have to expect this in older buildings. Breakfast was included I had the full English which was very tasty.

Room Tip: Book a double room even if on your own for the space

My wife and I visited one mid week lunchtime and enjoyed a large and tasty Mexican dish each. The meals were very good value for money and we would go again. The service was good, but the restaurant was sadly quiet. The only down side was the smell of toilet disinfectant although we were seated, by chance, as far away from them as we could get. The Hind is right in the middle of Wellingborough with easy access to nearby shops.

Room Tip: Did not stay in a room.

Right from the minute we walked in the staff could not have been so helpful..we was stopping in the Hind due to working in the area for 6 days..like people have said its a grade 2 listed building so that's the charm about it yes creaking floor boards bare thread carpet on stairs but that's the beauty of the place the room was very clean and tidy with plenty of tea and coffee provide,,was a twin bedroom good shower and like i said they went out of there way to help us as we had to leave for work at 7am but breakfast didn't start till that time so staff came in early to provide us with breakfast at 6,30am....bang in middle of town so handy for everything that Wellingborough had to offer...would i stop here again yes i would

We stayed at the Hind overnight which was very central as it is in the middle of Wellingborough. The room was adequate and clean with tea making facilities. Parking was a little difficult until the recepitionist told us where to go. We booked this room with a discount so for us a reasonable price. The hotel is a little tired but OK if you are able to get a good price.

Dear 58abc,

Thank you for taking the time to review The Hind Hotel: we aim to please our customers so feedback and comments are greatly welcomed.

We recognise that parking for the Hotel can be confusing and appreciate your patience with this. However, we're glad that you enjoyed your stay and our central location, and we take on board your comment that the hotel 'is a little tired'. This is something we're looking to work on, and hope future improvements will allow the historic characteristics of the building to really shine through.

We hope that you'll stay with us again soon.

Regards
Shasha K

Noise from the next door room - they weren't being noisy but we could hear their conversation and when they leant against the wall our headboard moved!!
Only 1 VERY thin, lumpy, pillow on each bed.
Not enough milk - in small plastic containers - for both to have a cuppa afternoon and morning.

Carpets on the stairs are very worn; see photo. There are a few dangerous steps; it is just a matter of time before someone is seriously hurt.
Loose newel posts on the stairs; someone could be badly hurt if one fell on them.

Room 204 - had to close window because of noise from restaurant extractor; had hot sleepless night. The shower over the bath is a fixed head one and only a dribble came out.

Only 1 lady on reception, very capable and helpful, but had to do everything and be everywhere, including delivery of extra pillows and milk, to 2nd floor (no lift). This meant there was no one at reception thus giving security and safety issues.

Why don’t they have instructions and or a map on their web site? This is a very difficult place to find. We did not see the tiny brown sign on a side road; we did 2 laps of the long one way system before being ‘talked in’ by the lady on Reception.

Parking is very limited for a large ish establishment; there are only a few spaces, with very limited manoeuvrability. We would not have used it even if there had been space in case of damage. We were concerned about the overflow parking area, in an isolated area – ‘…it should be OK; there haven’t been any incidents for a few months’!!

The staff were excellent and very helpful and the breakfast was good and freshly cooked.

BUT - this should be a lovely place to stay but it is obviously being run on the cheap by absent (?) owners who obviously aren't bothered by customer service, giving value for money etc.

We will not return. I would suggest that you don't go there.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road and kitchen extractor fans - or, better still go to another hotel.

Dear Alan,

We're sorry to hear that you found your stay with us less than satisfactory: providing a high level of customer service and value for money is important to us, and so we're more than happy to receive comments and feedback.

We understand that our parking can be confusing and apologise for the difficulties that you faced in this regard during your visit. We also take on board your comments regarding the hotel décor and this is something we are currently working on improving - the stairwell carpets you mention in your review are in fact to be replaced within four weeks.

We're glad that you thought our staff 'capable and helpful' and enjoyed your breakfast, and hope that, should you change your mind about returning to us, we can show you that we are indeed a 'lovely place to stay'.

Thank you for your review.

Regards,
Shasha K
