    Default Good hotel near Wellingbrough, Northants

    I am after a good hotel for 1 night Fri 9th May near Wellingbrough for myself and SWMBO, SWMBO is a bit fussy when it comes to hotels.
    I am going to look over the new car at York Ward and Rowlett as it has come in 8weeks ahead of schedule,aparently there was a gap in the production run so it was built

    Any suggestions gratefully recieved.

    Sorry Colin can't help on the hotel but smart choice of York Ward & R as supplying dealer. They gave me a great deal on my, then, 10 month old, 4k miles, 3.0Cdti Siggy Elite last year. £14.5 with parrot Bluetooth thrown in - a bit of haggling involved but isn't dperecation a wonderful thing!

    YW&R also sorted me out on servicing (I've done 40k miles in the last 14 months) by coordinating service with me visitng customers in the area and lending me a decent Astra for the day.

    Good luck with the new car, hope you enjoy it - Trev

    Im in there next thursday, what car are you expecting so i cn have a nosey??

    As for hotels, there is an Ibis on the outskirts which is at least clean and tidy, but i don't think there's anything you could describe as nice in wellingborough.

    Try http://www.falconhotel-castleashby.com/ it' about 15 minutes into wboro town centre from castle ashby.

    My new one is a SRi cdti 150 in star silver with SRi plus pack, and VXR styling pack 1.
    I am told by the rep a guy called Richard Fairhead it is in the storage compound out back,(same as the pic below my name)

    My current 1.8 SXi came from YWR back in sept 05 and i had no problems with them so i am expecting a smooth deal again.

    Thanks for the recommendation

    Evening all,well a short up date on my new car viewing expedition at YWR over the weekend.

    Me and SWMBO Dee, left Redcar on Fri morning and after 1 pit stop at Donnington for a wee we arrived at YWR in Wellingbrough for the viewing.
    Parked up within the site and found Richard the manager. He eventually found the car in the middle of a huge compound. We had a look round and nosed around inside and out but the car was not pulled out so it was difficult to view it from a far.And as anyone who knows YWR compond it is not the flatest concrete area

    The viewing took 10-15 mins with some chat along the way

    I have to say i was disappointed/disheartened in the viewing. SWMBO thinks it was because i was expecting to much like it to be all cleaned and shiny and parked up ready go instead it was covered in muck, dust and bird s**t and had all the transport protection on,parked on a steep hill with 2foot of gap between cars,plus seeeing some at local stealers mine didn't look the same. (photos attached but quality is crap from N95 phone).

    The Marriott hotel at Eagle park on the A45 was very good for the overnight stay and at a reasonable price of £89 B&B for both of us.Sat in the bar with a pint and watched a hot air balloon take off at sunset and reflected

    I will have to wait till Sept 1st to see it again and hopefully she will look as i expect it to.

    What model is it Colin?

    doh just remembered you said what it was on the MP3 thread.

    BTW I was at the stealers yesterday morning with a handfull of discs. Not one CD40 in a 2008MY in stock. Will try another dealer next week.
