“Deserted!”
Reviewed 10 March 2008

I booked in here for a Friday night so that we had a good head start up the M1 the next morning for a wedding. We'd seen the hotel from the outside previously and thought it looked quite nice, so booked in for £55 for the room.
When we arrived, the place was deserted - so much so that we wondered if it was open! But the chap on check-in desk was very pleasant, as was the barman who found us some food.
Apparently the hotel was empty because it's full of businessmen during the week and wedding parties on a Saturday, but Friday nights are a bit of a no-mans' land.
The only criticism was that the bathroom looked a bit tired with mouldy sealant (seems to be the same at every Holiday Inn throughout the world!) and that the duvet was very thin. But overall it was great for the money and so much nicer than the Travelodge alternative!

Myself and some friends had a reunion here over the New Year holiday. We couldn't have wished to be anywhere else. The food was fab, people fantastic, staff exemplary (particularly Alex), entertainment brilliant and it will be a New Years Eve I shall remember for a very long time. Thank you for making our stay such a memorable one. :-)

I stayed the weekend of the 7th September 2007. We arrived at around 8pm on the friday night to discover the restaurant closed due to a wedding party taking place. However we had a really nice meal in the bar.

We stayed in the Enigma Suite. A super room but it was very hot and the air con was next to useless. So we opened a window. Wrong....we were next to the road and the road this hotel is situated on is very busy....all night. The bed was fantastic.

On the saturday night we got back again to discover the restaurant closed again. I wasn't happy but the manager arranged for room service at no extra charge and i have to say the food was exceptionally good. We really enjoyed it.

The only other issue was the shower. To be honest it did struggle somewhat and they really need to get a decent pump installed.

Check out was good and the reception staff where first class.

Remeber to check to see if there is a wedding party on as this hotel is not close to anything...and set in the countryside.

Stayed September 2007

Stayed at the Holiday Inn for 4 nights during August 2007.

The Hotel was clean, quiet and the room was well appointed.

The property has well maintained grounds and a lovely court yard situated within its centre which is an ideal place for having a light refreshment.

It is however situated in a semi rural location, Milton Keynes is only a short drive away and has numerous restaurants if you don't want to partake in the Hotels food.

The breakfast was just above average, maybe because the hotel was quiet, the choice of items was less than other Holiday Inn properties. We ate twice from the bar menu, the portions were fine and the quality was above average for hotel food.

If your looking for somewhere to stop off whilst travelling the M1or for visiting local attractions (we covered Woburn Abbey, Bletchley Park and Gulliver's Land) this hotel is ideal.

If I was in the area again would I stay here again? Certainly would.

This hotel aims at the budget end of the market and succeeds. Rooms are clean and have a quality feel and the restaurant was excellent. Staff were very friendly and the service was good. The location is good, being far enough away from the M1 that noise is not an issue.

When we arrived there was a wedding in the restaurant which meant we couldn't have a meal there, although we were told we could have a meal in the bar area or reception. We chose to have a meal in the bar area - big mistake there we were sat in jeans in the middle of the wedding party who were in there whilst the tables were reset for their evening meal. They charged us the full restaurant price and the meal was awful!! We complained that no-one had mentioned there was a wedding on when we booked the room and about the things mentioned above - we were told that the wedding made them more money than individual guests - by this time my husband was livid!! They did eventually agree to give us half the cost of the meal back. I would never go back here!

I was lucky enough to stay in a marvelous suite at the courtyard during a business trip and I found it to be excellent. I was there during a particularly busy weekend (Christmas parties) but heard virtually no noise at all. The staff were friendly and attentive, including the cleaning staff who went out of their way to accomodate. I stay in hotels 3-4 months a year on business and this is easily one of the best I've enjoyed.
