“Friendly and helpful staff which made all the difference - great service!”
Reviewed 11 May 2011

We booked here for a conference for work. After a poor experience at a De Vere venue last time, we came with reservations, but left completely reassured of the service levels of De Vere. From the moment we walked through the doors, we had multiple staff willing to help us set-up and provide anything we asked for. The conference room was set-up for us upon arrival. The food throughout was very good and we were very happy with the quantities.

Yes the rooms are small but mine was perfectly clean. Ive staid in as small a room in Tokyo at 10 times the price!! Good flat screen TV, iron and board and a comfortable bed. Would be rather tight for two people. Reception and bar area is quite pleasant and there is free internet. In some hotels the money I have paid for one days internet is almost the price I have paid for this room - it truly is tremendous value.

This is a different hotel by shape and design of its rooms, but that makes the overall hygiene factor poor staying in it's rooms - in my view.
So if you care, avoid this hotel well before it starts to puzzle you why on earth they have designed an open-plan-room hotel like this?. To save space or create an appeal factor?. For sure, both did not work for the architect in this case. Atleast it is good to be reminded that doors for a toilet / bathroom serve the very same purpose whether its a house, hotel, restaurant, a gym or an airplane !

Room Tip: buffet breakfast good but the service was awful

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for your comments. I can only apologise that you did not enjoy our open plan rooms on the ground floor. If you are staying with us again please try one of our newly refurbsihed second floor rooms which I trust you will find more suitable.

Kind Regards,

Visited for a conference, staying for one night and it's more than adequate for this.

Small rooms, small bed - but big enough for one. Although I am quite short, and could easily see a taller person finding it uncomfortable. Good pillows, and very quiet - really decent night's sleep.

Although the shower in the morning was dreadful - hot, but not much pressure and shower head needed a good de-scale.

TV had a decent selection of channels and is a decent sized flatscreen. Room also contained a desk, and there's free wi fi around the hotel. There's also an internet cafe on the third floor.

Breakfast was not great - they did have fry up, but lack of vegetarian choice. Continental side very limited - some fruit, although not a broad selection and no pastries etc. Was a while until I was offered tea or coffee and the waitress was not the most helpful.

Receptionists encountered were all lovely - very helpful. They also have a shop for forgotten toiletries which includes almost everything you could possibly want.

Location wise, it's a short walk from the town centre of Newport Pagnell which has a decent enough selection of pubs and restaurants.

All in all, a conference centre with rooms. Not a hotel. Although this is acknowledged in the pricing - I paid £30 for the night which is more than reasonable.

Booked a late room and it's been the best value I've had from a business-stay hotel in years; Hi-spec, cleverly designed room, extremely friendly staff and a superb breakfast buffet, grapefruit, porridge, full English, the lot.

Will be my first preference when next in the area.

You know I have to say that I really like here. Its comfortable and a great central location. Room ARE a wee bit small but much much better than some crummy singles / twins. Their BIG singles, probably what you would have called an old "double". Nice friendly staff too. Not nearly as bad as most folk apear to be saying. If you can catch a good room rate, better that Tlodge, Premier. Newport Pagnell is a really nice place to eat in the evening and has fantastic hour long unwind walks if you can be bothered. Really historic, just try a long walk after a hard day at work. Thats as important than a big room sometimes!. Great central location for M1.
