“Room with a view, but not much else. Bad for overseas traveller.”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

The good: the hotel is location on Willen Lake and close to a lot of nice walking. The area is very scenic. The rooms are very clean and quiet. However, the hotel Lacks the few amenities that make hotel stay convenient: in room phone, you have to pay for WiFi (but you get on the Cloud instead), microwave oven, refrigerator, facial tissue, pens and note pads.

I know that with many people lack of a phone is not a big deal, but for the overseas traveller an in-room phone is very helpful to avoid roaming charges, my SIMM card from Lebara did not connect in this area of the UK.

The staff is polite, but they are limited in their ability to assist. Our in room coffee/tea service was missing spoons, the front desk was not able to get us a simple thing such as two small spoons "because the restaurant took care of that."

Also there is not lobby for meetings or a hotel computer to print out emails boarding passes etc. Basically not a good hotel for the overseas traveller.

Room Tip: Get room with view of lake, located above restaurant so you can get on the restaurant's Wifi, wh...

Stayed here on the way back to Hull from the Isle of Wight, we had a very comfortable large family room with bathroom, beds very comfy we even had a balcony. The hotel overlooks the lake which is fantastic there is so much to do lots of walks, water sports etc. Not all the rooms overlook the lake which was fine for us as we only stayed one night. Breakfast was lovely and so was the meal in the adjoining pub. Price was excellent, we may be back for longer!

We stayed here on Friday 18th July for 1 night and found the hotel to be excellent .
The hotel and room was spotlessly clean and all staff we came across were all friendly and always made an effort to say hi.
There is a £4 car park charge but really can't complain. When our room cost was only £29.
We stayed in room 1 which I would highly recommend as it's right in the end corner so is quiet which no late night guests walking by and have a great lake view from the balcony .
Dinner on Friday in the restaurant was very nice and great value and also great breakfast .
All in all a great stay !!

Usual high standards of cleanliness and service. Friendly bar and restaurant staff! Only downside for me is that you have to pay to park (£4 for the night). Excellent views of e lake, with great walks/ runs for the energetic. Good value for money!

We had to scour the Internet to find a room in Milton Keynes at short notice and vary our dates according to availability. We got what we expected. there is no car park as such and the public car park for Willen lake was full up on the arrival Sunday. You have to pay to park any time in each 24 hours.

Staff were friendly and helpful and the lady running the breakfast service was especially so. The buffet table cloth could do with a heavy duty clean and the general bar and eating area looks a little tired. I booked the room, my grown up daughter stayed there, three of us had breakfast each day.

fantastic location, especially if your planning a day out at the near by Gullivers land directly opposite the hotel, the hotel has picturesque view from any of the rooms looking out over the beautiful lake.
