We were looking for accommodation for over fifty guests, we wanted a good bar, and separate restaurant facilities. We needed a central location easy to find. The bar was pretty good although expensive, catered well for lager drinkers, wines and spirits, only one beer Boddingtons. There was use of the swimming pool/spa, the dinner was a self service buffet, and was excellent. The Manager Kamil and his Deputy Ash were excellent nothing was too much trouble, they ran an excellent dining experience. The rooms were clean and comfortable, large flat screen TV, air conditioning, two bottles of spring water provided each day. Large comfortable lounge to meet and greet guests in. Breakfasts were really good value, with cereals, cold fruits, yoghurts, cooked servery eggs, bacon, sausage hash browns, beans, mushrooms and tomatoes. Toast, pastries and pancakes were also provided for people with large appetites. I felt the hotel had been renovated quite recently.

Room Tip: I had an even numbered room on the first floor, with the window open it was just possible to hear mo...

The hotel itself and indeed the staff is good, the prices for everything else however are a bit excessive for what you get, the food is at best average and the breakfast I would say not a patch on premier inn. I paid £30 for WiFi access and was only there for one night, when even Mcd's give it to you free I just can't see how they can justify the fees - in the evening I had too pay £10 for access in the bar and then a further £10 when I reconnected in the room. I think if you are a family on a short break with kids eat free for breakfast it would be good (as long as you take an evening meal elsewhere) but as a business traveller maybe the premier inn down the road is the better option.

This is one of the better holiday inns I have stayed in. Friendly efficient staff, never had to wait more than a couple minutes to,check in/out. Good breakfast and functional rooms, also good motorway access 2 minutes away. Not the place to stay for tourists wanting to see london but if have business meetings nearby its ideal.

We booked a whipsnade package, but decided to check in a night earlier than planed. I'm so glad we did, lovely staff on reception, big clean bedroom, great hotel facilities (the pool was a big hit). Sadly we had to check out tea time the next day due to an emergency at home, this was no problem for the staff on reception and they very kindly didn't charge us for cancelling this night.
We will return to stay here again for definite, hopefully in the near future.

We were greeted by a polite and helpful receptionist.
The room was clean bright and comfortable.
Breakfast was a buffet affair and although on the first morning there was a terrific queue for the very slow toaster, there was plenty of choice.
Very easy to find if you are travelling from the motorway, and a great pool.
We would stay again.
