“Excellent Again”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

You cannot beat the Holiday Inn Express hotels when it comes to value for money. The staff both on reception and around the hotel cannot do enough for you. A free basic but good breakfast is provided along with a newspaper. You also have tea and coffee making in your room if required. All in all very pleasing. Keep it up guys.

The staff were very welcoming and helpful - especially Richard and Sally - making what was a sad occasion a lot easier. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, as was the rest of the hotel, and the breakfast more than adequate. We look forward to visiting again under better circumstances.

I stayed here one night. It is ok as Holiday Inn Express hotels go.

It is modern and clean, the room was well equipped and relatively comfortable.

The location is ok on the outskirts of Kettering but it is not well signed at the road junction and it is easy to miss the turning into the hotel (even though you can see it !).

There is a Harvester next door but Harvester is Harvester and its not really great for a quick meal. There is food available at the HIExp bar but the choice is relatively limited and the quality not really very good.

Staff were friendly.

Room Tip: Watch carefully to find the exit from the main road to the hotel its easy to miss it.

Our son marshals at Rockingham frequently and we always stay here if it is available
The hotel is within easy reach of the race track, the staff are always very friendly & helpful
The rooms are spotless and tidy, you get free internet for each guessed
Breakfast is included also in the price of the room, this is always piping hot and good quality , you never have to ask if there is more of an item as the staff are always making sure that it's kept full.

Well done Kettering

Room Tip: We have had a different room every time we've been to this hotel & they are all the same, I...

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.

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.

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.
