Reviewed 23 May 2014

We stayed here in the past but had avoided it because the beds were not very comfortable. When we checked in this time, it was mentioned that it was a new bed, and it is a great improvement - very comfortable.
Room was very quiet, breakfast is also improved since last time we stayed.
We couldn't get wifi in our room, although it was available in the pubic areas. (Perhaps because it was a ground floor room?)
Our room key didn't work in the morning, and apparently this is a frequent problem for that room!
BTW, I tried to post exactly this text on the hotel's review site and it refused it because "your review text contains inappropriate language" with no hint as to what that might be!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a new bed! (and working wifi)

Good Afternoon,

Firstly I would like to Thank you for taking the time to write a review and I am very happy to see we have improved on everything compared to your last stay with us, it is much appreciated you have listed the improvements.

Unfortunatley our Wi-Fi is in the middle of being up-graded to a high standard so hopefully next time you come back this will also be an improvement, all of the rooms (including ground) will be at the same speed and standard when rectified.

Our Maintenece team is aware of the faulty lock and this is now rectified.

I do hope to see you again soon.

Kind Regards

We stayed here as to avoid a very long journey. It is a very good budget hotel, clean and comfortable. My minor criticism is that the bed was of the soft side of soft and wifi passwords only last 12 hours as we travel with a lot of devices this meant getting eight passwords from reception to cover a 24 hour period; only a minor gripe. There is a garage, starbucks and a harvester pub nearby. The breakfast in the morning was very good in quality and quantity (free). Would happily stay here again and met our expectations well.

Good Afternoon,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about the Hotel, it is much appreciated.
I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay but very sorry you found the bed too soft we are currentley in the process of renewing our beds so hopefully next time you stay you will have a new bed to a high standard.
Regarding the Wi-Fi we have 3 day codes which we provide to guests that are staying for more than one night, this would have been a better option for yourselves, please bare this in mind for your next visit.

Glad you enjoyed our Express breakfast and hope to see you again very soon.

Best Wishes

We choose to stay in this chain of hotels, wherever possible, as a stop off on our trips around the country. This was our first visit to this particular hotel and it was just right. The staff on the reception desk were extremely efficient and polite and the room and breakfast were exactly what we would have expected. The big plus factor is being able to bring along our dog and this hotel has a great dog walk right behind it. I'm sure we will be back some time soon. Thank you.

New hotel on the outskirts of town, bright spacious and well laid out with very helpful staff. Powerful showers which is always a plus but towels are only changed every other day. Big negative was the internet speed. On day one of my stay, and the hotel was packed, when I could measure internet speed the best I could do was 110kbps! As a business user this is nowhere good enough. The big plus was I'd never felt safer in any other hotel I've ever stayed in as the photo shows.

Good Evening JWL940,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about the Hotel, it is much appreciated the more reviews and feedback we recieve the better it is to help us resolve our weekness'.

I am glad you liked the bright, spacious room and the powerful shower.
House keepers change the towels every 2 days but you can request for these to be changed on a daily basis (a tip for next time you stay)

I am pleased to see that the staff were all helpful, I will pass on your kind comments.

I am very sorry to see the Internet was not up to speed, unfortunatley we are in the process of re-newing this and due the signal and the area it is taking longer than we would have hoped for.

Please do come back and enjoy another stay with us.

Enjoy your weekend.
Kind regards

Stayed here for a couple nights while visiting a country fair. The hotel was good value for the money and was very clean. No evening meals here but a pub next door sorted this problem out. You can order and eat your own takaway in the lounge if you want to. Richard was very nice on reception (my wife says).

We stayed here en-route to the Norfolk Broads, and would be happy to break our journey at this hotel again. The only criticism I have is that the Post Code of the hotel was not recognised by my 2-year old SatNav device.

This Holiday Inn Express is very modern. The service provided by reception was quick and efficient, while the bed room and shower room were clean and their layouts typical of this chain; importantly, the beds were comfortable and no noise experienced The hotel is situated on a new estate, which is shared with offices and a Harvester Inn, where lunches and dinners are served.

This motel offers a free continental breakfast along with a few cooked items.

Stayed as a walk in customer, hotel ideal on the A14, road into Kettering. Surrounded by Starbucks, Brewers Pub and a service station.

Check in was friendly and easy, lots of free car parking, hotel clean and well set up. Sky TV, bar and an attempt at a food menu.

Well worth a stay, beats the Holiday Inn in Corby, by a country mile!
