Gone are the days where a budget hotel has to mean budget experience! The Holiday Inn Northampton West has recently had a £2 million pound refurbishment and you can see the eye to detail throughout every nook of the hotel! I was lucky enough to be invited along to the the opening event by Nicole who runs Northampton Bloggers!


The hotel has refurbished all of its rooms and created a lounge thats great for anyone staying for business or leisure.  The event on the Thursday evening allowed for the Mayor of Daventry, some of the Saints rugby team players and many local businesses to mingle and join together in the opening of the hotels new venture.

The lounge/reception holds plenty of seating, loads of plug sockets for when you’re on the go and want to stop by for a coffee or enjoy a place to lounge before hitting the hay!The reception is inviting and hosts a restaurant and bar which is stocked a plenty and holds Starbucks coffee for even the earliest of mornings or catching up with a friend in a out of town location!

The rooms are big! Bigger than most lower priced hotels I’ve seen with storage space, a place to sit and relax, a great TV and even USB sockets for charging all your devices – this is where modern facilities are coming into play in the hospitality world!

The event even included a raffle which was for raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, there was champagne, a stay at the hotel, saints tickets and a meal for two up for grabs! And guess who won the meal for two!!  We’re super excited to come back and try the food out, it will be the perfect place to spend a weekday evening date night to unwind and relax after a busy day at work!


I’d like to thank Nicole for inviting us along, although not many other Northampton bloggers could attend, it was great to be included and a part of the Northampton group and events!  Everyone was so welcoming and inviting and it was great to mingle with the PR representatives as well as Simply Hospitality who made the whole vision of the hotel happen!If you’d like to book a stay at the hotel or to find out more check out the website here [LINK].
