Quite simply fabulous property, fabulous Staff all intent on making my stay a pleasure. The health club and swimming pool are well maintained with expert staff looking after all guests needs. I have lived in the middle east for many years and we regularly stay in five star hotels in Bahrain and Dubai, the Kettering Park rivals all and betters most!
Thanks for having me,

Room Tip: Ask for a ground floor room close to reception.

The Kettering Park Hotel & Spa right beside the busy A14, surrounded by lots of trees and shrubbery and looking like so many other ‘business’ hotels on yet another business park. Once inside however it has a far more traditional ambiance and a ‘solid fee.’

My 4th floor room was a good size and well-appointed with good solid furniture and wardrobes instead of frequently seen chipboard cupboards with flappy doors on. The window looked out over shrubbery that covers several earthwork Bunds that surround the hotel and account for its quietness. Despite its close proximity to the road there was no traffic noise at all.
Magnificent bed – very comfortable.
I liked that the sound from television & radio is carried through to a speaker in the bathroom allowing guests to listen to music or follow the news during ablutions.

I also very much appreciated that the fridge contained a small carton of fresh milk – not the usual ‘sticks’ or plastic cups of UHT milk . . . [often out of date]. Small but very welcome touch.

The grounds are present and again quiet and peaceful with plenty of varied seating that includes deck chairs . . . something I've not seen elsewhere. The hotel swimming pool is right at the center of the building and has an outdoor patio area. That together with the deck chairs gives a nice relaxed atmosphere.
There is a trellised outdoor dining area too.

A wedding party was at the hotel at the same time as the conference I was attending and with the hotel being on a commercial park it may not be everybody’s obvious first choice – but it seemed to work and work well. The hotel and its grounds should prove a nice venue for a wedding.

Wheelchair access throughout is good too.

I am a solo traveler of a somewhat more ‘mature vintage’ and as such often invisible to staff and frequently overlooked. But not so here. A receptionist gave me a patient and polite, idiots guide to Wi-Fi internet connecting [a complementary service!] and a casual inquiry to the waitress about a dish resulted in a young man was summoned to go through the entire menu with me in detail. Interested and wanting to be helpful.

Dinner for me in the end was posh fish and chips. A huge cod wrapped in a crispy, crunchy Wainwrights Ale batter, served with chips, mushy peas, tarragon sauce and all served in – ‘newspaper.’ Not actually a real newspaper but catering grease-proof printed as The Sunday Times. My reproduction copy contained an article from the 1960’s [?] about the Berlin Wall, with quotes from President J.F. Kennedy and Premier Nikita Khrushchev. Very different!
Desert was a scrumptious, luxuriant summer red berry Pavlova [- perhaps inspired by the Berlin Wall?] with cream and ice cream . . . and only 250,000 calories!

The bar stocks a good selection of wines, spirits and beers and includes draft Wainwrights Bitter’s, brewed by Thwaites of Blackburn, and on a warm sunny evening what could be nicer than a glass or three of their bright, clean, golden brew!

Breakfast is buffet style with a wide selection but additional fare cooked to order on request. [eg: Salmon & scrambled eggs.]

That I enjoyed my stay is in no small part to the comfortable and welcoming atmosphere and a courteous, helpful and cheerful staff. There is an attention to details – those small touches that do make all the difference. Clearly those working at the hotel enjoy their work and take pride in their hotel – that much is obvious and another real difference.

I would have no hesitation in recommending The Kettering Park Hotel & Spa to business and leisure travelers alike. Well done – Thank you!

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments following your recent stay.

I'm delighted to learn that you've had a great time with us, hopefully we'll be seeing you again sooner rather than later.

I'm always pleased to read such lovely comments and to know that the small details such as fresh milk, which to us are just a standard as we've included fresh milk for guests for many years now, but to know it's still appreciated is fantastic.

I know the team will be delighted to learn of your comments, so thank you.

Attended for an awards ceromony and dinner. All excellent including the Suite I was allocated. My only complaint is that they do not take cash or cards at the Bar after 11 pm. You need to swipe a credit card at Reception for the costs to be loaded on your room bill.

We ate here as a party of 12 for a relatives birthday, food was extremely well presented and tasted delicious, staff were courteous and efficient. The Hotel was busy that day but we didnt feel rushed or crowded, The pool looked lovely but we were only there to eat, I wouldnt mind coming back to stay though!

Excellent hotel. Very impressed with hotel and staff. This is the first time we have used a Shire hotel and I'm impressed. This is a rather new hotel and found rooms are a good size and everything would expect. Nice touch was fresh milk in the room fridge rather than the normal milk tubes. Food in the hotel was also very good. Had evening meal which was well worth the money. Breakfast was of a good standard and you can have things like scrambled egg made to order. Hotel is in a business park but you would never know as the gardens are well landscaped and nice to sit out in. Well worth a visit.

Used this as a base for visiting family for a birthday celebration. Good quality accommodation, nice sized family room which was well appointed. Busy at breakfast but very friendly service, food was freshly cooked and regularly replaced. Despite the staff being busy they were attentive and checked regularly that everything was okay. Did not have time to use the pool or spa but it looked great. Gardens are lovely and very well kept.

Large hotel on the edge of the A14. The hotel has fitness centre and swimming pool.
Ive stayed a few times and the hotel seems busiest in the week.

The hotel is clean, well kept and the staff are all friendly. Huge carpark available.

The rooms have everything you need, tvs, kettle, iron etc.

The Park is by far the best hotel in the area however prices are, in my opinion high. Rooms are generally always more than £100 which for an East Midlands hotel that borders a dual carriageway and business park is excessive.
