Holiday Inn Express Kettering

Holiday Inn Express Kettering is set within a prime and convenient location just off the A14. The hotel has 120 bedrooms and 4 meeting rooms that have been recently refurbished to a modern standard with a £500,000 investment.

 

The hotel is celebrated for its great management practices and exemplary health and safety record for both staff and guests. We listen and consider all feedback from guests through conversations, online reviews and surveys, ensuring that their stay is as smooth as possible.

 

The hotel actively encourages staff to be open and honest about any issues that they have regarding their personal life, sickness and mental health. We work with the staff to ensure that we have an open-door policy and have created a culture where we can be open and honest without fear of stigma or repercussions and regularly undergo further mental health training.

 

Employees have opportunities to learn and progress within the business. Many staff have progressed onto senior roles and many have moved on to higher positions in management at other locations.

 

The hotel has also joined a range of networking groups to promote the hotel to new and potential clients. This has strengthened the hotels opportunity to work with local businesses, for example we have worked with local decorators, plumbers and electricians during our recent refurbishment. The hotel has continually provided local businesses with further reductions on corporate rates and meeting rooms.

 

The hotel has overcome many challenges over the years but here at the hotel we now see any obstacle as a challenge and face it head on to ensure continual growth and success within the area. The hard work of the staff over the years has made an astonishing impact in 2019, when they saw record growth for the hotel over first quarter.
