“Good for a stop over”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

After a slow drive up the M1 I arrived and found the hotel, I was a bit worried as it was on a main road and I am quite noise sensitive. Parking was fine, check in very efficent and friendly. The room was clean, tidy and the bed linen was acceptable, I liked the choice of the firmness of pillows.
The drawers on the dressing table kept sliding open. Whoever designed bathroom should be shot! The toilet roll was behind the toilet and the flush was on the wall of the shower. The sink taps leaked and I think the bathroom needed updating.

There were no heavy curtains on the window but like blackout linings, they worked very well, I got a good nights sleep. Only problem was the heater was not working and the outside temperature was below freezing, however I just used the quilt off the spare bed and all was fine. The ligthing in the room is plentiful and there are decent bedside lights to read by.
Didn't use restauarnat or bar as I was out for evening.
Efficient check out in the morning; very reasonable for price, would use as a stop over again.

The rooms need a complete refurb, it looks like the hotel has been touched up around the edges but the bathroom was grubby, there was a mysterious stain (blood or make up?) on the net curtains in the room and the sound insulation was shocking, I could hear the lift all night and didn't sleep well. All the staff are friendly and the food is OK though. The mini-gym is hilariously small.

Room Tip: Away from the lifts

Dear Steven M

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your review following your recent stay at Holiday Inn Bedford Road Northampton. All the feedback we received is valued and used to help us learn lessons and to improve the service and facilities we offer.

I am really sorry that on this occasion your stay did not beat your expectations. There is no excuse for the curtains not having been cleaned thoroughly and I will address this with the team.

I am sorry that you were unable to sleep properly due to noise from the lift had you informed us we would have offered you an alternative room.

Your comments about room and toilets have been noted,I do hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Holiday Inn Bedford Road Northampton in the near future.

Kind Regards

I stayed here only for one night but thought it was really excellent. The staff were great and friendly, nice room, good facilities and I'd highly recommend it for a business overnighter. Had breakfast which was great.

I've stayed here a number of times (it's handy for the Brackmills business estate), and it's always a toss-up between this place or the Hilton. The food here is a better selection, and more reasonably priced. However, the ugly ensuite bathrooms really are in need of updating, and many of the rooms have minimal heating (though they will send up a plug-in heater if you ask).

The beds are very comfy, and I do like the Holiday Inn choice of pillows! The main bedrooms are well decorated with a good-sized desk to work at. I don't really watch the TV but the channel selection isn't very comprehensive.

The breakfast is fine, and there's usually a free newspaper too. The hot buffet seems to be regularly replenished as there is a brisk flow of business travellers on weekday mornings. Sometimes there is a selection of little pastries, but I try to stick to the fruit salad, which is usually a good option!
