We stayed here overnight before visiting Althorp House, which is just a short drive away. As another reviewer said, please don’t be put off by the location. This is a gem of a hotel.
The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our room (5) was clean and spacious with a very comfortable bed. I think that’s the first time my husband has managed to have a good nights sleep in a hotel! Roomy ensuite.
Tray of tea and coffee in room with good quality biscuits...and bottled water, which you don’t get in lots of hotels.

There is a lovely ambience in the bar. we didn’t eat in the restaurant because there was a special event in there, so we sat in the bar area and ordered from the bar menu. the food was excellent - particularly the treacle tart with ginger ice cream....the best I’ve eaten anywhere..so light!! Good wine, too.

My husband and I both highly recommend this hotel. We would have liked to stay longer!

Date of stay: October 2018

Dear Mrs Pitman,

Many thanks for your kind review and for awarding the team top marks, which is very much appreciated by us all.

Our highest priorities are to offer exceptional customer service, alongside outstanding quality food (we have 2 AA Rosettes) at great value prices and I am delighted that you were pleased with both.

We do have private housing to the side and rear of the property as The Hopping Hare was formerly a manor house until the surrounding land was developed in the 1960's. However, we are well located being set back from the A428 (resulting in a peaceful night's sleep!!) and convenient for both town and country and rail and road links. We are very popular with both regular business customers and visitors to the County.

We do hope you can stay with us again. Kind regards, David.

Don't be put off by the location of this excellent hotel/restaurant. (on a housing estate) We stayed overnight following a visit to Althorp which is close by. Our room was large, comfortable and clean. Our evening meal was excellent, high quality restaurant standard and not overly expensive. The full English breakfast was also very good. My only slight criticism would be the lack of choice for a continental breakfast. There is a 'granola pot' on the main menu but the buffet consisted of some individual packets of cereal.

Dear Erica,

Many thanks for your review and I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Excellent quality food (we have 2 AA Rosettes) at great value prices, alongside excellent customer service are our highest priorities.

The Hopping Hare was formerly a manor house and the surrounding land was developed for private housing in the 1960s, but set back from the A428 we are conveniently situated between the town centre and country villages.

We will review the continental breakfast choices.

We hope you can stay with us again, kind regards, David.

I stay in a lot of hotels, for both work and pleasure, and can honestly say this was the best nights sleep I have ever had in a hotel! The room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. The only bad comment was we were only give one large towel to share between us.
A beautiful full English breakfast, toast and endless drinks set us up for the day, and I couldn’t fault a thing.
We didn’t eat in the restaurant in the evening, but wish we had because the food smelt delicious!

We will definitely be stay here again!

Dear Vanessa,

Many thanks for your kind review and I am really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Many apologies for the towel mistake. There should be 2 in every room and I will follow up on this.

We are very much looking forward to your next visit.

Kind regards, David.
