Good to be back at this hotel, a very warm welcome from Mrs Mcquade and a very comfortable bed. Although this hotel is small the relaxed period quality of the building makes it something special and the breakfast is one of the best I have ever had at a B & B. Well worth a visit if you are in...

The Hawthorn House turned out to be my haven, having returned to Kettering from Chicago for two weeks to visit my mother, recently moved to a care home, and clear out her house nearly. After a stressful day, it was so relaxing to go back in time in this beautiful old house. Mrs McQuade was such a delight and this...

I was given a warm welcome from the proprietor. I felt the hotel was run efficiently but also with a personal touch. Breakfast was satisfying, and given in the warm and comfortable dining room. The Victorian hotel has an old-fashioned feel, which I liked. I stayed in the Coach House which has a very comfy bed and was quiet, despite...
