This month we’re focusing on three handy hotels in Northampton, the county town in the East Midlands that is considered the ‘centre of England’ and therefore a convenient meeting place for those whose delegates are scattered evenly around the country. Our chosen venues are all purpose-built hotels, each with something different to offer.
Park Inn by Radisson
A warm welcome awaits at this oasis of calm in the heart of town.
- Central location
- Thoroughly modern facilities
- Free access to the on-site health club for guests
Business meetings great and small with a choice of rooms to suit your budget. Outdoor dining with stunning views
Heart of the city
The Park Inn by Radisson is located just a short walk from the train station in the heart of Northampton’s town centre. The purpose built hotel has 146 modern en-suite rooms and has recently been refurbished to a very high standard, which adds to the appeal.
There are 12 self-contained meeting rooms to choose from, all located on the ground floor for easy accessibility. The largest (the Buckingham room) can accommodate up to 600 using a theatre style layout or 350 cabaret style. On-site parking is available for up to 160 cars, which is a bonus for such a central hotel. Guests are given complimentary access to the on-site health club so delegates are free to unwind in the sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi after a busy meeting.
The hotel allows you to book some of the meeting rooms by the hour, making it an interesting option for smaller businesses wanting to impress their bigger clients and prospects!
A superbly well equipped business hotel in a countryside setting.
- Choice of 61 flexible meeting and training rooms
- Indoor leisure complex including a whirlpool spa
- PGA standard 18 hole golf course in the grounds
Spectacular events, from outdoor team-building challenges to business conferences to large-scale weddings.
An inspiring setting
Staverton Park (a DeVere venue) is a modern conference hotel set in 150 acres of countryside with 247 modern bedrooms and an incredible 61 meeting and training rooms!
The largest of the rooms can accommodate up to 420 guests or delegates, making it suitable for big corporate events and grand celebrations alike.
Despite its countryside location the hotel is quite easy to access. It’s just a 12 mile journey from the mainline railway stations at Northampton and Rugby, which are both around an hour’s journey from London Euston. For air travellers, Gatwick Airport is two hours away by train (from Rugby) and Birmingham International Airport is 30 miles away. If you arrive by car, there are 420 free parking spaces on site.
Modern, practical and spacious – with the largest swimming pool in Northamptonshire!
- 18 metre heated pool in the Living Well Leisure Club
- Delicious pastries and coffees available all day at Caffè Cino
- Very good size bedrooms, or upgrade to a suite with a living room and working area
Business meetings, conferences and other large-scale events.
Spacious and comfortable
The Hilton Northampton is located just off the A45, about 5 minutes from the M1, just a 10 minute drive from Northampton’s town centre, 20 minutes from Milton Keynes and 40 minutes from Luton Airport. There is free parking for 270 guests on site.
The Hilton has 139 bedrooms and 13 meeting rooms available. The largest of these rooms is the Collingtree Suite, which can accommodate up to 300 in a theatre style layout or 250 cabaret style.
The Spencer Suite, on the other hand, would be the room of choice for private dinners and intimate events for up to 80 people.
