Aarandale Regent B&B - Northampton

*Now Closed*

6-8 Royal Terrace
Barrack Road

A really friendly B&B in Northampton that is 5 mins from the city centre. The staff are great, it is clean, there is parking at the rear of the building and they put effort into making breakfast.

Upon entering - The tables are set up with cutlery, cups, plates, condiments, butter & a selection of jams. There is a menu on each table clearly explaining what is available. 9/10

Tea & Coffee
Apple or orange juice
A selection of cereals
Full English breakfast (fried, poached or scrambled egg)
or veggie option
Toast & butter
A selection of jams

Service - The staff serving are helpful and friendly, they always ask if you would like anymore of anything so unlimited tea, coffee, fruit juice & toast. Im not sure if you could have a second fry-up as I have never asked. The owner cooks the breakfast and obviously cares about the guests as it always arrives freshly cooked. 8/10

Content - 2 rashers of bacon, 1 sausage, 1 hash brown, baked beans, half a grilled tomato, 1 fried egg or scrambled or poached. A jug of fruit juice, pot of tea or coffee & a rack of hot toast. all the condiments, jam etc are good quality branded products. Some mushrooms would be nice as would tinned tomatoes & fried bread. 7/10

Presentation - Nicely presented on the plate and everything clean. 8/10

The food - Good quality bacon, economy but ok sausage, nicely cooked hash brown, perfect egg, slightly under cooked tomato, great beans and the toast is always hot when it arrives. Not a huge plate of food but with the toast it always fills me up. 7/10

Value for money - It is included in the price of your stay. 8/10

Veggie option - Yes

Overall - What you get is great service and good food, a few times the toast gets forgotten so you have to chase it up but they are busy so easily overlooked. I have never tried the veggie option so cannot comment on that, maybe you get mushrooms though! I like it and will keep returning! 8/10
