Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Swindon, United Kingdom45 contributions45 helpful votes
Not a great hotel for the price. Arrived late and car park was pretty full. Got called "mate" a few times by the young male receptionist when checking in which isn't very professional. Room had the sofa made into a bed so was a cramped space and lacking a seating area. A desk provided but no chair for some reason?! AC doesn't cool lower than 19 degrees and is very loud and old. Sink plug in the bathroom doesn't allow water to flow away unless you unscrew it but when you do it smells bad. Breakfast terrible, coffee machine only provided a shot of latte so needed to press it 4 times to fill a small cup. All food was very cold and sausages were exceptionally dry and overcooked, while bacon was fatty and undercooked. No eggs available. On returning from breakfast I heard two lads working at reception taking the mick out of the accent of some American guests. Did have free WiFi and nice to have a choice of soft or firmer pillows.

We stayed here for two nights, and the stay was very comfortable. The staff was excellent, rooms were spacious, neat and clean. Will suggest people who stay over the weekend to go for breakfast a bit early, as it gets quite busy. Nice area nearby for a morning walk. Will stay again if we need to visit Milton Keynes.

The hotel is located outside Milton Keynes city center around 5 km. It’s nearby highway. Room is very large, clean and comfortable. However, it’s quite large hotel, some room need to walk quite far to the lobby. Breakfast served on the ground floor nearby the lobby. The food is acceptable. Price is very good.

Not a place for the elderly or disable people to stay, rooms have no place to put your clothes, no shelves or cupboards, no bedside drawer. There are places to hang your coat. We had to stay living out of our suitcases. Parking a problem, most disabled spot taken up by other travellers.

The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was clean and bright and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was hot and tasty and plenty of it. I would definitely stay there again if I was in the area.

We booked this last minute and we’re very surprised it was a lovely room staff helpful. It came with breakfast & parking on site. We liked it so much we booked it again for our next trip to Milton Keynes There a restaurant across the courtyard, the food was OK at the restaurant. Nothing special. Close to the Coachway

Really like this hotel if the price is right, as it seems to fluctuate wildly on rates! It really is a good little hotel with friendly staff in a great location. Having a stroll around Willen Lake in the morning is great. As for the hotel its a HI Express, but a good one. All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and modern, the wifi is fast enough for streaming and it is easy enough to find and to get in and out of Milton Keynes. Simple but effective.

I have been coming to this hotel for years but recently the rooms downstairs have been very cold I've stayed downstairs 3 times since Dec and each time the rooms has been cold even my twins were complaining. I'm not sure weather it's just the ground floor or not. But this is still our favourite hotel. X

Managed to get a room online for £50, and I have to say it’s terrific value. The room is spacious and offers everything you need. Also it was spotless. Bed weds comfortable with a choice of firm and soft pillows, breakfast was included and food was warm and stocked up . Well done 👏🏻

I have to say I find this hotel as very comfortable and enjoy staying here. The rooms are clean, modern and spacious. Fairly priced too. But the real reason I am writing this review is because of the staff. I have to say I find all the staff, very friendly and kind, in particular a gentleman, on reception who's name sadly we didn't catch, I think he had a tattoo on his neck? He was very helpful and very kind and polite. I will be returning here in the future and yes its because its a nice hotel in a relaxed area, but a key factor of my returning is down to the staff as mentioned. Thank you 🙂
