Second time staying down in Milton Keynes in as many weeks for work and chose this hotel as my second choice as my first choice hotel from my previous visit was not available. I have to admit my colleague and I were pleasantly surprised on our arrival. You seem to go from roundabout to roundabout as is the norm in this area to a hotel that gives you the feeling you are in the middle of the countryside even though you aren't. Checking in was smooth and quick and we were dealt with by a friendly and informative member of staff. I was allocated room 33 a double room with a side garden view. The room had a small seating area, a desk/writing area and small flat screen TV. There was a complimentary tea/coffee making facilities which included a delicious flapjack and sachet of hot chocolate. There was a small fridge/mini bar (although empty) and also an iron and ironing board located inside a large wardrobe. The bathroom was a good size in tasteful decoration and I had ample hot water/pressure throughout my stay. My colleague stayed in room 28 which was a mirror image of mine but had twin beds instead. We didn't eat our evening meal at the hotel (see separate review) as we just liked the look of the pub situated around the corner. We did have a couple of drinks in the comfortable bar area before we went out and again the staff were genuinely friendly. Outside the bar are some lovely benches/umbrellas which would be nice to have a drink outside but it was far too cold during our visit. We both had a very comfortable nights sleep, I guess due to the quiet location despite it being around the corner from a housing estate (a nice one but you wouldn't know it was there). We both had cooked breakfast in the morning which was very good although its cooked to order which means you can't keep going back like you would in a buffet style for more. That said there was an abundance of toast brought to us and a good continental selection of cold meats, cereal,yoghurt,fresh fruit and pastries if you want more.
All in all a very good hotel if you want a nice quiet night whilst staying in Milton Keynes and you want to switch off from work. We paid £65 for bed and breakfast and this included free wi-fi. The only thing that would make this better is some sort of fitness centre or swimming pool. I went for a run and there are some good open green spaces for you to go should you wish.
