With summer holidays fast approaching, many people are opting for a British Staycation this summer. With that in mind, our Northampton hotel has picked out some of the best things you can do when you stay with us! Read on to find out more…
Just a 12-minute drive from our Hotel in Northampton is Althorp House, home to the Spencer family for over 500 years. Charles, Ninth Earl Spencer, has only been in charge for 23 of the 500 years but is already striving to make a positive difference to the wellbeing of Althorp. Guests can visit the house and discover the beautiful interiors and one of Europe’s finest collections of private furniture. Althorp House is also the final resting place of the late Princess Diana. Her ashes are located in a private building that can be seen from a distance by visitors. Tickets must be booked to visit Althorp House, which you can do here.

Jump in the car and head over to Wicksteed Park, just a short journey from our budget hotel in Northampton. Once there, you can get involved in their latest attraction...Clip n’ Climb! Suitable for ages 4 to 104 (yes, really!), this thrilling day out allows anyone to test their climbing abilities and compete with friends! There are 28 different challenges to take part in across a range of unique and colourful climbing walls. It makes a great day out for all the family, so be sure to book your tickets!

Treat yourself and the family to a meal out at Firejacks, only a 10-minute drive from our hotel in Northampton. Serving up steaks, burgers and even Lebanese cuisine, there’s sure to be something for everyone! Plus, with a Junior menu, even the little ones will have plenty to choose from. We’d highly recommend the Buffalo Blue burger in a glazed bun, with a cheeky cookie dough sundae for afters. Yum!

If you’ve left the kids with Grandparents, for a grown-up weekend away, then why not head to AU-RA just 20-minutes from our budget hotel in Northampton. Head here for a few pre-meal drinks or perhaps finish there with a nightcap before heading back to our Northampton hotel. Plus from Wednesday - Saturday, until 11 pm selected cocktails are 2-4-1, more reason to treat yourself! We recommend the Sherbet Fizz for a tangy fix, or a classic Elderflower Collins. We’ll see you at the bar!

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.
