Cotels Serviced Apartments Vizion
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 July 2013

Stayed at Vizion complex in central Milton keynes in 3 bedroom apartment for several weeks. Staff at Cotels were very pleasant and helpful with our numerous minor issues, but the apartment itself had some really annoying features.
First was the vertical blinds which do a terrible job of blocking windows or providing privacy. In summer time sun comes up at 4:30 am and this east facing apartments bedrooms would be in full sun by about 4:45. Lack of block out blinds means rooms heat up very quickly and become unbearable by mid afternoon. Cotels were unable to rectify as the 'owner' did not want to spend the money to replace blinds.We suffered with terrible sleep for our entire stay.
Second was the combination washer dryer which did not come with a manual ( found one on internet eventually ) that would take at least 3 hours to do one single load. For family of 5 this meant we felt like we were continually doing washing !
Mattress on main bed was way beyond its use date and contributed to our terrible sleep.Did not bother reporting as seemed like a waste after response to problems with blinds.
Rooms were good size with generous amount of storage, showers were reasonable, pressure and temperature a bit variable but overall not bad. En-suite shower was fairly small and awkward to use.
Security in complex was very good as was proximity to local shops and restaurants. TV in main living area was very good although a lack of any additional channels on SKY was disappointing. Included WIFI was nice & quick and never gave us any issues. Kitchen is well equipped and all appliances (apart from washer/dryer) worked well for our entire stay.
TV in the bedroom was not the wall mounted LCD shown in pictures but a 1990's vintage CRT with an external freeview box. Used it once, found picture and sound were lousy and we never turned it on again.

Room Tip: If staying during summer months ensure room has windows that do not face east. Avoid rooms that are...

Wow! Really impressed with the service from the friendly and helpful staff. The apartments were really nice. We will definitely stay again and recommend to others. Stayed with my wife but am thinking of using for business trips now rather than the hotels - all the advantages but still feels like your own home. Nice - Thanks to the Cotels team.

We stayed in these units for 2 1/2 months (still here for a few weeks) but I have been disappointed overall. The staff that works at Cotels are great but the units themselves have weird issues. The washer and dryer are atrocious. It takes a full day just to do one cycle of laundry. Probably the most annoying thing is that there is Sky TV in the flat but virtually no worthwhile channels. I haven't been able to watch one full football match because there is almost nothing to watch. I would just say that our experience here as been poor. I would recommend coming for a long stay. If you are here for a few night it probably isn't a big deal but a long-term stay wouldn't be recommended.

Four of us stayed in a two bed apartment for a night out. It was clean and just what a small group or family would need for a temporary stay in Milton Keynes central. If you want an adequate place to stay, that's at the heart of the entertainment district in Milton Keynes and allows you to do as you please, then this is the place to stay!

These are very good apartments. The service is not like a hotel (actually no service atall) but far better than all the hotels in Milton Keynes (Holiday Inn/Hilton). Good Value.
The location of my apartment was excellent. The room was a bit small.

Room Tip: Theater District is fine

We stayed in Cotels serviced apartments earlier on in December. You have to go to a different building a few miles away first to pick up the keys, the postcode wasn't on our satnav but they sent us a map by email and it wasn't too difficult to find. We stayed in apartment 205, it was brilliant! Very nicely decorated, has a lift and secure parking underneath the building. There's a button on the key fob you get for the apartment which opens the garage door to the parking underneath.
The apartment is literally over the road from Xscape where we did indoor sky diving and our first snowboarding lessons! There's a lot to do in Xscape. Also the apartment is over the road from the shopping centre, and around the corner (literally) from the restaurants and bars etc. You can't really hear any noise in the room, although slight noise is to be expected as you are very close to everything. If we go up that way again we will definately use Cotels again as the apartment was so easy to find and so close to everything.
