Lovely BnB in a Victorian area in the centre of Kettering- Rating 5/5

Highly recommended. Mrs McQuaid and her daughter run a lovely BnB and are very attentive. I stayed on the first floor in the annexe which has a quirky narrow stairs and plenty of space inside, with a shower and loo. Nice quiet area too.

Quirky! - Rating 5/5

Had a most enjoyable one night stay at Hawthorn House - it's individual, independent and very different to the usual run-of-the mill places, which is great (unless you like those!) The bed was very comfy and the breakfast was excellent.

Great breakfast - Rating 5/5

A very pleasant hostess. Comfortable room with a good shower. A nice touch was the small fridge in the room with cooled milk and chocolate biscuits. All in all a very pleasant overnight stay.

I stayed for a Saturday evening as I attended a conference in the area. My stay at Hawthorn House was great andfrom the moment I arrived, Mrs. McQuade made me very welcome. I was up very early on the Sunday morning and the cooked breakfast before I left was superb.

Staying in Kettering.- Rating 5/5

I was visiting family in Kettering &stayed at the Hawthorn House Hotel. On my arrival, i was greeted by the owner who was very welcoming &polite. My room was spacious &comfortable with adequate facilities to make my overnight stay comfortable. The price included breakfast, which was tasty &had various options including a full english. Would stay at Hawthorn Hotel again &recommend their services to anyone visiting Kettering.

One night only- Rating 4/5

A spacious comfortable old house containing many intriguing displays and picturesThe owner/staff are friendly and helpful even agreeing to my 11-00pm check in. Breakfast was prompt and excellent, the onlydrawback being the bathroom though solely for that room was up an extra flight of stairs. There was fridge in my room with milk and a KitKat to go with the tea and coffee. I would happily stay there again.

Very traditional B&B with inspiring service - Rating 4/5

If all hotels paid as much attention to their guests as Mrs MCQuade &her daughter there would be no need for reviews. Quaint, quirky even, very traditional B&B. Spotless, warm, welcoming. Parking or if full street parking. Great breakfast freshly cooked. Great value, I've already booked for next month.


Thank you very much for your kind review which we fully appreciate. We look forward to seeing you again next month.

Wonderfully quirky - Rating 5/5

We stayed as a group or re-enactors who were appearing at the local museum. We appreciate interesting and historic environments. Combined with being immaculately clean, warm and welcoming with individually prepared delicious breakfasts catering for a vegetarian and a diabetic we couldn't have asked for a better or more convenient place to stay within walking distance of town centre.

Comfortable bed, good breakfast, lovely welcoming host. Be aware Wi-fi is not available here. The room could be improved by the addition of a table/desk and chair that would be suitable for working at a laptop.
