The Roade House Hotel
Ranked #3 of 20 Northampton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 May 2016

We were advised to book into the Roade House when invited to attend my sister's 50th birthday party with friends in the local pub, the Cock Inn. It couldn't have been more convenient, as directly across the road from the pub and now under the same ownership.
We had room 7 which was large and had everything we needed, and more - the minibar contained complimentary soft drinks and chocolate bars, plus there was a carton of Pringles, 2 mini packs of cookies and 2 bottles of water - a lovely touch. The bed was comfortable and there was WiFi. The over-bath shower, although electric, was surprisingly powerful which was good.
Breakfast is taken in a room downstairs. It was good quality and tasty. However that room felt very bland and we were the only people there. As it was an unusually warm day, it would have been nice to eat out on the patio. We did get the waiter to find the key so we could finish our drinks outside which was lovely.
The hotel (more of a B&B now - the old bar seems to be more of lounge now) is a slightly odd place as it now has a deli in one section which serves afternoon teas and light meals as well as items like homemade pies from the deli counter. We did enjoy a late afternoon tea break in there and sampled a cream tea and toasted sandwich which were both good quality.
Overall the hotel/B&B suited our requirements and was good value.

We stayed for a two night break over my birthday. Staff were lovely. Not 'pushy' but helpful. Breakfast was all that you'd expect - cereals, fruit juice, full breakfast if you wanted it. We chose poached eggs, mushrooms and grilled tomatoes on toast. More than adequate. Plenty of tea or coffee. Room was clean and large. Good sized bathroom with complimentary soaps etc. A nice touch of choccies and juice in the fridge. Always welcome! Coffee shop underneath where we met up with relatives for coffee and also a nice lounge area. New owners took over in December. We wish them every success. Highly recommended.

Wonderful hotel friendly caring service. The Pub across the road (The Cock in Roade) is owned by the same people and served great food. I would recommend the sizzling stone steaks. Great service in both places. Vanessa and Ness looked after me so well I had a very relaxing stay and recommended the place to my company to use when other colleagues need to stay over for business.

Had seen some adverts on social media for the coffee shop re opening so thought as we had family visiting we would try it out for lunch.

I ordered a ploughman's and as my title suggests it was far from good. The cheddar and Brie were completely tasteless, there were no grapes as the menu promised, the bread was fair to middling, the butter was a tiny portion in a plastic portion pot more suited to a road side cafe than a village deli. Of the two orange juices I ordered (that were poured from a carton of extremely cheap from concentrate brand) they were completely different sizes despite the same price paid for both.

Maybe I was expecting too much but for the price I paid and the quality of clientele I would expect local fresh produce bursting with flavour, something for the staff to boast about not substandard over priced food that you could buy better than in Tesco.

Never disappointed with Roade house. Food is always excellent quality, can be pricey but it is worth it.
Steak is my favourite, tender and juicy!
Sunday lunch is good value for money, often go with family.
