Booked restaurant for evening meal which was excellent, good service and lovely staff.
Also stayed for breakfast, the choice was very good - cereals, cooked breakfast or pastry's etc. would definitely book again.
I stayed here last week with my mother and 3 children from NZ. I had previously stayed at Ibi>?" over the road, and this was miles better. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful, as were all staff we met. The interconnecting rooms had a great view and were spacious, with wonderful rain showers. The kids LOVED the pools on the ground floor - a definite bonus for parents traveling with perpetually-active children. The breakfast is well worth the money with a full English breakfast, a range of delicious fruits and other foods. Avoid the coffee though - it was constantly bitter - and the poached eggs which tasted of vinegar. The hotel is located one block from the heart of the town, and so great for exploring round the market square and surrounding shops. For a fabulous lunch, take a 20 minute drive to Market Harborough to the Italian chain Zizzi on the main road - the food there was divine, and kept the kids entertained and filled. For dinners, we grabbed bread, ham and cheese from a supermarket - the one in Kingsthorpe (where my grandparents lived) is great, and only 10 minutes away. To support the local rugby team, drive to their shop (about 6 mins from the hotel) and stock up on bumper stickers and merino scarfs. Overall, we were VERY pleased with the hotel, and will definitely be back, and will search out this chain in future.
This is the nicest Holiday Inn I have ever stayed in. Clean, organized, well staffed, good food, kind service and centrally located. Free parking, fantastic gym and pool. I would stay there again gladly.
