Went into this with eyes open!
After reading other reviews I kind of knew what to expect and we just wanted somewhere to put our head for the night, we had been up since 5.30am, been all round the caravan show and we were going on to Daventry the next morning so I booked a late room for a quick stopover. To be fair we did arrive early, instead of 4pm arrived at 3.10pm and the reception door was locked and the receptionist had gone home, it was pouring with rain and a woman opened the door and said that the receptionist had gone home and we would have to book in at the pub. We ran round to the pub and the manager there said yes she would book us in, we then all went back round to the reception in the pouring rain and booked in. Once in all was fine and our room was fine, not tiny, we booked Room 12 a twin room with bath, very comfortable beds, I suffer from a back problem so its the first thing I check, nice bed linen and the bathroom was spotless. Room was a little dark and could do with redecorating and the curtains definitely need a good clean, thick dust at the top down the edges but honestly fine as a stopover. I had a bath, had hot water, everything worked fine. We walked over to the pub for the meal. The pub was fairly quiet as this was about 4.30pm again I didn't have high expectations and went in fairly relaxed, just wanting to unwind and get something to eat. We were shown to a nice table and said they would be back to collect our order. We were left looking at the wine/beer list and the menu. After 15 minutes past still no-one had come to see us and everyone seemed to have disappeared, husband was tired and thirsty and had been looking at the beers for 25 minutes, I managed to call a waiter over and ask to order. We ordered the lamb steaks, the mixed grill a glass of Shiraz and a Bombardier Beer. The waiter said "Sorry we are out of Bombardier beer" So my husband said "Okay, I will have Doombar" The waiter said "Sorry Sir we are out of Doombar too" So my husband looking at the list of around 12 beers said laughing "Okay, tell you what, tell me what you do have?" The young waiter said "Ah, um, I'm not sure?" So my husband said "Do you have Wainwrights?" "Yes!" he said. Great, so off he went to place the order. Ten minutes later a lady came up and said "I'm sorry we don't have the lamb and we don't have any beer, we only have Bass" We both laughed with tiredness, and I have to say frustration. All we wanted to do was eat and have a drink. We had been sat there for around 30 minutes by them. I ordered the Sirloin instead of the lamb. I think because of our reaction she said "I apologise and we will complement your food and drinks" So we ordered the drinks which then turned up promptly, there wasn't a long wait for the food which was pleasant, the steak was tasty and came with chips and peas and onion rings. Tasty and straightforward and all we wanted on a Sunday. After this a variety of waiters all came up and asked if we were happy with our meal. Then one came up to ask if we wanted a second round of drinks, she said same again and we said Yes please! She came back 5 minutes later and said "sorry it says Wainwright and we don't have any Wainwright, what beer did you want?" We laughed and said "Don't worry just give us the one beer you have left." She looked at me a little quizzical and I said "Just a Bass will be fine." We then ordered Sundae's for desserts which were lovely and I expected to pay for these. We asked for the bill and did have to say "We were told our food and drinks were courtesy of the pub apart from the desserts" and so he went off to check and the bill came for just the desserts, so they honoured what they said, although I hadn't complained and would have been happy to pay for the whole meal this was nice that they did this. I think communication seemed a bit of a struggle, no-one seemed to know that they had run out of all the beers on the list and it would have been nice to have received drinks on our arrival rather than to be sat with a menu of drinks for 25 minutes of which none of them they had. A very simple thing to correct which when isn't corrected leaves you with frustrated customers. Would I stay again, yes for a stopover, beds were comfortable, had good nights sleep and the cooked breakfast was excellent, the young girl who did the breakfast and booked us out was lovely, very obliging. All staff were friendly.

Very pleasant staff. Rooms vary from adequate to nice, so worth specifying if you want to be upstairs, or down, have a bath, want a larger room or single. Food was nice. Good location. Would go again.

It was a very difficult time and the staff were very accomodating and friendly putting me at ease, when I returned back to the hotel from the hospital The rooms were warm and inviting .I would recommend this hotel, it also had an ajoining restaurant.

spur of the moment
my wife and myself had a fall out with my mother in law who lives with us, so we decided to stay away for a couple of nights. it was a spur of the moment decision but the right one to let things cool off. we found the hotel on laterooms website and found the room clean, warm and tidy. the manager was very helpful. also the staff in the pub next door. all in all a pleasant stay.

Homely feel to the place.
Upon entering, we were met by a lovely lady with a slight accent. She was great. The room was average, no ceiling light and the bedside lights were a bit dull. No wifi reach in the room. The bathroom was fairly sized, no toiletries. Crack in the sink. The windows are supposed to have restrictions on... None. The mattress was too soft.. We were contemplating checking out and finding somewhere else. The room was cost, TV was good. Plenty of storage space.

Reminded me of being a student
Reminded me of being a student as the room and building corridor was entirely reminiscent of Halls Of Accommodation.
No real complaints though - I was paying £46 a night so what else can you expect? The bed was clean, though a very small double, there was a kettle and a TV and a hair dryer, liquid soap and a toilet. As long as you expect nothing and realise this is basic, budget offerings - this isn't a romantic break or a 'treat' or anything, you'll be clean and safe.
Worth noting we staying two nights and our room wasnt serviced. Apparently it should have been, it was overlooked.

Quirky
Good value for money, convenient location & very helpful staff. The rooms are quite quirky which we liked, all of the main areas were clean but we had a dirty cup & tea spoon in our room & the skirting board had tea splashed over it. I would definitely recommend this as a decent "value" hotel but would like to see that little bit more attention to detail when cleaning the rooms.
