"The smell of fish"
Stayed here for 1 night. The hotel was ok. Not too bad. Nice and modern. Ok breakfast. What you expect for the price however.. The bed was really uncomfortable and although the room appeared clean the toilet stank of fish.. In other words stale urine. Not sure if I would recommend again.

"Great price and good location for Silverstone"
Stayed here for using the Silverstone F1 park and ride (~35 mins away). Got moved to an accessible room which has a "wet room" style bathroom. Unfortunately this had an awful smell and felt unclean. Aside from the bathroom, the rest of the room was fine.

"Pleasantly Surprised"
I needed a bed for the night before joining a business workshop at another venue in Kettering, so chose this establishment. What a pleasant surprise! The hotel is situated on the northern side of town, a £12 cab fare from the train station. If I had arrived earlier in the day, I would have been able to take a bus across town. I was greeted warmly by Terri at reception and checked in efficiently. My room was large and wheelchair friendly. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and the room boasted all the items I needed – coffee maker, comfortable bed, soft and firm pillows, marked appropriately, good lighting, flat screen TV to watch the World Cup football and cute decals on the mirrors reminding me that if I had forgotten any toiletries (or anything else) I should consult reception. Next morning the free breakfast was an added bonus – as was the plush bath sheet – unlike the small towels normally found in budget hotels. After an equally swift and smooth check-out by the still on duty Terri (doesn’t she ever go off duty?), I left for my next assignment. Not sure when I will be in Kettering again, but, if I am, this will certainly be my choice of sleep and go! Maybe I’ll tarry awhile too.

Hi Terry, Thanks for your review of the hotel. It is great to hear such positive comments. I apologise that the room allocated did not meet your needs. The booking was made for this room type, but we will investigate to see if there is a glitch in the booking process, so thank you for highlighting this for us. We do hope to see you again in the near future. Kindest regards,

"Poor standard"
The bed sheets were disgraceful due to two large worn/threadbare patches. I have taken a photograph if you wish see this. How the housekeeper can continue to use such poor bedding is not acceptable. Also the shower did not function properly in that the water was splashing from the hose and the head. The peep hole in the door is blocked and for a single female guest it is important that this is functional. So overall, not impressed.

"High Standard Hotel"
As with all Holiday Inn Express Hotels they offer a basic, clean and modern standard of hotel. Having said that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were traveling as a family of six and booked two rooms. Each room came with a double bed and pull out bed that was made up prior to arrival. The rooms were of medium size which allowed a level of comfort even with the pull out bed made up. This chain was the only one that provided us with the correct number of towels (3 per room) throughout our one months holiday. The housekeeping was very good and our rooms were always made up to a high standard. The free buffet breakfast was a real bonus and the staff were cheerful and accommodating. Overall no complaints except that the bed springs could be felt when lying on the beds but this didn't make the beds uncomfortable.

"Family weekend away with toddler and a dog!"
Booked 3 rooms for family weekend. Very nice hotel, staff great - we were looked after!!! Harvester within the grounds which was good for dinner, particularly with children. Beds a little soft and only standard doubles but ok, we requested a child's cot in one of the rooms, the matress was on the thin side so not a good night's sleep for our 20 month old traveller. However, if you are travelling with a dog, this pet friendly hotel has great walks directly behind the hotel with plenty of space to run safely off the lead, our Labrador loved it. Overall a great stay!!!

"SHAME ABOUT THE BEDS"
Most things were fine - cost, staff, breakfast, cleanliness etc - but it was let down by the beds. The main double bed sagged badly in the middle and was uncomfortable for two people, and the sofa bed was also not comfortable. The main reason for a room is surely to get a good sleep, but unfortuately this was not possible.

We booked this last minute, we were a bit apprehensive, Been caught out like this before else where at other hotels But boy were we in for a shock ! it was one of the best hotels we have stayed in. Breakfast was fabulous..... Room was clean fresh and tidy. Our son and his girlfriend lives just down the road, so for us to be close but not in their pockets was a bonus. will be back up in January

"Lovely hotel"
We booked this hotel as a late booking and got a great price. The room was really spacious and very clean and had everything we needed. Went to the Harvester which is located about 50 meters away and had an awful meal but this has no reflection on the hotel. Plenty of parking and staff very helpful. Breakfast was good, a mix between a small cooked and continental and was help yourself. Cant complain about anything and would definitely recommend staying here and if we visit the same place next year will stay again.

"Clean and functional."
A clean and functional place to sleep. There is a Harvester next door for food. Staff were pleasant and informative. We had a twin room which was clean and a decent size. Breakfast was included, not a huge choice, but ok for the price. Happy with the hotel for what we paid, but if you are unlucky enough to have a room next to the parents who allow their kids to run up and down the corridors until late into the night it does hilite that the rooms are not that well soundproofed.

"Excellent Holiday Inn Express"
Enjoyed a one night stay at the Holiday Inn Express Kettering with family members. The staff were attentive and friendly. The hotel was next to a busy A road but we got a good nights sleep despite this. There is a Harvester restaurant next door so ideal for a meal. Breakfast was adequate and free (as per all H.I. Express hotels) as was Wi-Fi internet connection. Beds comfy and rooms perfectly adequate for a short stay. You do need a car to stay at this hotel as it would be difficult to walk into the nearest town, although the hotel staff organised a taxi for us to our evening event. Would stay here again if in the area.

"Great Hotel but the location sucks."
The hotel itself was fantastic, probably the best Hotel I've stayed at in this contry. The room was very clean and very modern. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning made the room a nice temperature. The only downside was the location it wasnt really within walking distance of anything and the surrounding areas were basically building sites and fields. If you dont have a car I wouldnt recommend staying here but since I drive it was fine for me to travel to where I needed to be each day. Aside from that I would recommend the hotel itself because it was clean, comfortable and a friendly environment.

We stayed here for the Grand Prix weekend and it was a very nice experience, the staff were pleasant, the hotel was very clean and the complementary breakfast was more than enough to suit most tastes. If I had one small criticism it would be that the Wi Fi was almost impossible to use due to a weak signal but I am being picky! Well done Holiday Inn Express Kettering and thank you.

"The too-soft beds spoil a great hotel."
The hotel, location, staff, and other bits are all great - the hotel is let down massively by the beds: WAY-too-soft mattresses meant nights of broken sleep. We were a party of nine and everyone was of the same opinion. It's a shame, because the lack of sleep means that we can't even consider returning to this otherwise nicely situated hotel.

"Fab! but finding it in the dark could be difficult"
Brand new, clean and friendly hotel. Not many hotels you can choose to sleep with the window open and get no noise! :-) very happy. Breakfast was good and a nice suprise to have sausage, beans and scambled egg as an option in a continental brekky. Only thing that may prove difficult (in the dark) if you don't know the area and AA route planner is not specific enough, you may find it difficult accessing the hotel. You keep to the left lane after the roundabout, even although you are turning right. You bascially take a big loop to get into the hotel, we could see the place but just couldn't find the road in. Road works added to the problem. However this doesn't detract from the great nights stay we had. Well worth the money!
