The Kettering Hotel and Spa is conveniently situated close to the A14 motorway and is certainly in the top echelon of conference venues. We were there for four days and the experience was almost faultless. The building is stately with pretty gardens, fish in the pond and rabbits on the lawns. The rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms well-provisioned. The bar fridge has complimentary water and fresh milk daily. There is free Wi-Fi and a desk with power points in abundance.
The hotel boasts a spa with an indoor pool. Not my cup of tea, but well-used by some of my colleagues and day visitors. The conference rooms are well serviced and lack for very little – enough power points would be one thing. The food was of a high standard throughout our stay, with the exception of the outdoor barbecue where the service was poor and unprepared. The food was late and cold, and the bar service non-existent. For all the other eleven meals the service was impeccable. A package like this doesn't come cheap and you will feel that in the bar and the rates, but it is a good trade-off between luxury and value for money.More
