Celebrate Christmas this year with a trip to our hotel in Northampton where you can enjoy a variety of festive events taking place near our hotel throughout November and December. We’ve put together a list of some Christmas festivities taking place this year around Northamptonshire.
Feast on delicious Christmas treats at this year’s Winter Food Festival, taking place at The County Cricket Ground, just a short drive from our Northampton hotel. Boasting over 80 food, drink and gift stalls as well as chef demonstrations and tasting workshops, you’ll be immersed in the festive foodie atmosphere. Enjoy some tasty street food and warm up with a glass of mulled wine before heading back to our stylish and affordable Flore hotel. The festival will take place on 11th-12th November 2017, adult tickets start from £6.
In easy reach of our Northampton hotel, the Christmas Sparkle Fair is a great place to purchase those all-important Christmas presents for your loved ones.

The popular Daventry Lantern Parade and Spirit of Christmas returns to the town once again on the 8th December to kick off the Christmas festivities. Enjoy watching the colourful lantern parade where townspeople flood to the street with their homemade lanterns to light up the winter sky. Or, treat the kids to visit Santa’s grotto to meet Mr Claus himself before heading over to Bowen Square near our Northampton hotel where you can listen to the Daventry Community Choir sing everyone’s favourite Christmas carols.
Visit Sulgrave Manor on 6th & 13th December 2017 between 11am-3pm to enjoy their special Christmas Wednesday event where you get the chance to travel back in time to when Mr George Washington celebrated Christmas in this beautiful manor house. Just moments from our Northampton hotel, this festive experience is full of storytelling about yuletide traditions with the chance to enjoy a warming tipple of mulled wine accompanied by festive treats served in the Courtyard tea room.
We stopped here on the way back from Silverstone to use the hotel's rapid charger and have a bite to eat.
Really impressed with the reception staff, hotel cleanliness in the lobby and the quality of food.
We enjoyed our brief 40 minute stay here so much we are considering staying here in the future for when we fly in and out of luton - which we do very often!
Can recommend the fish and chips and the lasagne.
Driver Friendly hotel too - serve becks blue behind the bar.
Im a lady on my own travelling from Spain to UK, hotel staff were exceptional I got back late last night so i had to use the carpark at the back and it was dark so the receptionist walked with me to my car shed only been working there a week so thank you so much ,the man on reception was really kind ,polite and helpful ,I would recommend to any ladies travelling alone it feels safe and clean loved it ,I'm also gluten and lactose intolerant and they even had gluten free food brilliant thank you and I will be defiantly be back.
Pleasant and efficient reception. It was a Sunday evening, and the hotel was very quiet with few fellow guests. Our twin room was on the ground floor. There were two comfortable chairs, a workbench, two very small bedside tables, and a wardrobe. The bathroom had a walk in shower. All quite compact.
The bar/restaurant was in the open lobby style. We had a good evening meal there.
Breakfast had a good choice, well maintained by a very cheerful chef. Fried or poached eggs were made to order, which helped keep things fresh.
Very good value for money.
Just an overnight stay for a wedding at nearby Dodmoor Barn. Hotel easy to find of M1, clean and tidy, staff friendly, large rooms well fitted with every thing you need. Breakfast excellent with options for all.
Stayed here for one night. Rooms comfortable and Clean. We were able to check in earlier to get ready without any fuss. Great Breakfast included. Hotel near M1 so very convenient but in a countryside location.
This is one of the nicest Holiday Inn's I've stayed at - can hardly fault it at all!
Special mention to the man who checked us in on Saturday evening, and the man serving in the restaurant that night. Both offered some of the nicest hotel service I've ever known. The receptionist took time to tell us a bit about things in the local area, and helped us make sure we get the best out of our stay. The waiter/bar man made the meal really special. There was a slight delay preparing some of the food, but the way he handled the situation was perfect. The food was all very tasty too - I had the Club Sandwich, and sticky toffee pudding for dessert. All tasted delicious.
The room and the whole hotel is clean, modern and comfortable. Felt very welcoming. The car park is big and free, and there was plenty of spaces available.
So happy I booked a couple of stays here, so am really looking forward to coming back in a few weeks' time. Thanks to all the staff for making it such a great weekend.
Lots of parking spaces neat to hotel and offered FCO. The welcome / meet and greet was good. Nice bar and bar meal offerings. Room clean and in good decorative order. Wifi good and intuitive to connect to. Lots of access to power points in room. Location of hotel good, very useful for an early train ride from Milton Keynes to London. Communal areas in good order, all in all, left refreshed and happy. Easy to find on Google maps. Will visit again.
Went here with a friend for a chill out. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Close to the M1 but lovely and quiet.
Rooms were lovely and clean. Ordered room service and this was brought up on time. Well worth a visit. Close to other towns and not far from Silverstone.
