BEST Sunday lunch I've ever eaten out. The staff could not be more friendly and helpful. We have two new bikes and were struggling to lock securely and the staff came out and let us put them in a locked shed whilst we ate and drunk. Thank you. Food was AMAZING! So much choice. Delicious. Thank you xxxx

This pub hotel seems to think it's acceptable and normal to ring you up after having a room booked for ages, and tell you your room is no longer available. I called and booked a room for July and they confirmed this was all fine and wrote my name and number down and they made my booking. I asked them... More

We are very sorry that your room was "double booked". Unfortunately we have had a couple of incidents whereby a member of staff has taken a booking but has not checked the Motel Register first. The summer can be very busy, especially for the Grand Prix, and our rooms are usually booked annually in advance by regular guests. We have... More

We booked 2 double rooms 7 months in advance of an event we planned to attend in Milton Keynes. We then bought tickets for the event. 3 months later the hotel rang us and bluntly told us they double booked meaning we no longer had rooms!!! There was no explanation other than - "we make this mistake a lot" !!!!... More

This quaint, friendly and traditional country pub is a must visit. A good selection drinks, friendly staff and a beer garden with cracking views. The Lowndes burger has to be the best in the south and I highly commend it to anybody. You'll be hard pushed to find better in this part of the world!!

Came off route to break our journey, preferring to take a chance on somewhere quieter & more traditional rather than the plethora of fast food options in & around Milton Keynes. Staff were friendly & accommodating. Given choice of more expensive pepsi on tap or can of coke cola for amazing price of £1 !! Portions very generous and chips... More

Dropped in on a Sunday excursion and had a very decent lunch in this well positioned pub with accommodation. (Hotel?) Good homemade koftkas and creamy garlic mushrooms to start, nicely moist cajun chicken and standard scampi to follow.

Its a local with a difference. The restaurant produces really good pub food with some special dishes - fresh products, properly cooked vegetables, served piping hot, and quickly.

“Note there is no pool, and no fitness centre and I didn't sleep there, being a local. The rooms are clean and new, this should be reviewed as a pub/restaurant, not a hotel IMHO.”
