I’m glad I didn’t read the reviews of this hotel before I booked or I may have been put off what was a very pleasant stay.
On check in, the receptionist was warm, friendly and helpful. Arrived on a very hot day and the air conditioning in the hotel was a blessing.
Yes, the décor in the rooms is somewhat bland and tired, but the room was a good size. There was a full size wardrobe, desk & chair, TV stand with drawers, separate table and chair for dining etc. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. The air conditioning is individually controlled in each room and worked perfectly (and there aren’t many hotels in Aylesbury which even have air conditioning in the rooms). The bed and pillows were clean, very comfy and I had a great night’s sleep. The room was quiet with no traffic noise.
Basic Wi-Fi was free and worked fine for me, although there is also the option to upgrade to a faster connection for a fee. There is plenty of free parking outside.
In the corridor outside the room there is a vending machine with soft drinks and snacks, together with an ice machine (ice-bucket provided in the room).
The restaurant menu and snack menu are very limited, and the “restaurant” itself is small and looks more like the food bar in a country pub. However there are pubs and restaurants within easy walking distance where you can eat very cheaply. Alternatively, they are happy for you to order a take-away and have them delivered to the hotel. I elected for room service, which arrived promptly, and the food was cooked well.
Whilst I probably wouldn’t want to stay for any length of time, it’s a great little place for an overnight stay.
