Best Western Rockingham Forest Hotel.

The Best Western Rockingham Forest Hotel is situated just 2 miles away from the centre of Corby, scenically placed next to Rockingham Castle. It's both a comfortable and convenient hotel in Corby, with a peaceful, rural setting that offers easy access to the A14, A1, M1 and M6. East Midlands, Birmingham and Luton airports are all close by, which makes the hotel just as pleasant to stop-over in as it is to spend a few days at, and also the ideal spot for an international wedding with guests flying in.

If you're here for a family break, there's plenty to do nearby, to keep everybody happy. The hotel is close to Wicksteed Park, Twin Lakes theme park and Gullivers Kingdom for some adventure-filled days out. Rockingham Speedway is only two miles for any adrenaline junkies who fancy a day out on the racing track. You can experience the excitement of driving some of the world's top supercars including Ferrari or Lamborghini. Fishing and cycling can be enjoyed at Rutland Water, while scenic walks through the Northamptonshire countryside are not to be missed.

The hotel has 71 en-suite bedrooms, with 2 four-poster suites and a divine 'Lordship suite' boasting a Jacuzzi & king-size bed. All bedrooms have been recently refurbished, with each given a modern interior complete with satellite television, complimentary Wi-Fi, Freeview, direct-dial telephone, hairdryer and 24hr room service for any midnight cravings.
