“Inner door!”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

We stayed for one night only. The location is very good just being off the M1. Ample, free car parking. Our room on the second floor, although the bathroom was a little tired, was clean enough. We liked the separate loo and also the inner door which created a tiny lobby area from the outer door leading to the corridor. It does help as a buffer zone to any noise coming from the corridor. We did not eat at this hotel so can't comment on the food or service. We did a rapid checkout so no queues to join. We would definitely use this hotel again if we were in the area and the value for money was exceptional.

Room Tip: A room on the top floor then no noise from the occupants above!

Rooms were unclean. Shower had hairs in still and a dirt tide mark around the bath. Toilet doesn't have a lock and toilet paper felt like tracing paper!
Sofa bed did not have a duvet just a blanket which caused a freezing night sleep for my friends.
Bed felt like your feet were higher than your head and was lumpy.
Staff were very blunt and sometimes rude.
Breakfast was very very simple. Probably 3/10.
Dinner buffet there was not alot of choice and some things offered looked questionable 2/10.
Was able to connect to free 24 hour WiFi though which was the highlight!
Overall paying full price for this hotel is a total rip off when you can get a premier inn for cheaper.
I will never be staying here again and will spread the word to others not to stay either.

Room Tip: No tip to choosing a good room, just avoid.

Does what it says on the tin, plain and simple. Friendly and helpful staff, excellent location for a night out! Cheaper then a taxi home. Beds comfortable, rooms very roomy. Not had chance to eat dinner but the breakfast buffet was gd quality.

We arrived at this hotel late at night and only spent one night before heading back on to the M1 the next morning.

We had a very peaceful nights sleep, as we always do in Novotel. There was no noise at all, which was impressive considering it's proximity to a main road and the M1.

My only issue was with the decor. The room and corridors were very dated with a lot of decor damage visible. It's obviously not seen a refurb since the early 90's at best, and was unusually tatty for a Novotel. But considering the price paid, we were happy enough.

Rooms very dated and in need of modernisation, duvets heavy and too hot. Cleaned to a good standard. One plug socket in a family room of four, all with mobile phones iPads etc.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Meals in the restaurant were good but not good value for money. Location was not close to the airport, premiere inn was closer and around the same price.

Visited this hotel recently en route to and from a family funeral. We were very pleasantly surprised at the standard of this hotel. Whilst the rooms are a little dated they are spacious and very clean. The restaurant serves a wide selection of food to suit every taste from main courses to snacks. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We would certainly have no hesitation in booking this hotel again. The proximity of the hotel to the motorway made our journey to and from Bedford very easy.

Room Tip: As for a room at the back of the hotel as sleep quality could be affected by road noise.
