Lovely hotel, lovely food and etc, service however is different, requested extra pillows in the night and was completely forgotten about and the car parking is ridiculous, there's 86 spaces to 100-200 rooms so we were forced to park outside their barriers to pay £2 an hour or 50p an hour if we didn't mind a little walk. Finally got... More

Booked here as visiting the MK Shopping Centre which is located just across the road and accessed via underpass at the bottom of the car park. The greeting at reception was friendly and expedient and we were soon in our room. The room was clean and functional with all the features you would expect from a chain hotel such as... More

Excellent location just across the road from the main shopping centre. Rooms ok but very dated and faded. I booked an "executive" room and have to say I would have been unhappy if I had been here on business as the WI-FI was so slow as to be unusable and there were no plug sockets accessible from the desk without...

This place is quite run down. See my pics. Stained furniture. Poor quality furnishings. Cheap iron that doesn't even take wrinkles out of your work shirt. And disgustingly dirty bath / shower area. I will not be using any of these. If these are the conditions of the rooms I dread to think what kitchen areas etc are like. I... More

Just returned from a night away with 35 colleagues. On the whole, the hotel is good, although when we arrived yesterday there was no parking at all due to people being their for a meeting, not overnight guests! After 45 minutes I eventually was able to park! Some colleagues checked in and found a voucher for free drinks in their... More

Brilliantly located for central Milton Keynes shopping, bars and restaurants. Executive Room was nice and clean and well equipped (hairdryer, iron and ironing board, sufficient hanging space etc.). Bathroom could have done with a glass shower screen - the curtain doesn't quite work and feels awful. Breakfast was first class! Great choice of hot and cold foods. Staff were all... More

The Hotel is in a good location close to restaurants, bars and shops. The staff were friendly. Downside is that there weren't enough staff behind the bar and at times service was very slow - but they were polite. We had a family room which was spacious and clean and we were very pleased with the separate part for our... More
