Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jackiemk Great position for my shopping trip with my daughters
This was an annual shopping/catch-up trip with my two daughters.
Just a shame I always have to negotiate for a room for the 3 of us and athough we always get a lovely executive room.....I have to sleep on a 'put you up' and pay much more person than when I stay with my husband!!!! Good that the car park was free this year!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Billy2019 friendly relaxed atmosphere
we found our stay very pleasant, all members of staff were friendly, courteous and helpful and the hotel standards very good.
Facilities provided in the room was above average and also other facilities in the hotel, such as health and beauty treatments,indoor pool etc are first class. We recommend it to all, thanks.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Snorkelseeker Spacious Room and Great Breakfast!
We stayed in an executive room and the extra space and slightly separate sleeping area for our child was just what we needed. I loved the air conditioning as I hate to sleep in a hot room. The bed was very soft though, and the headboard not the best shape - it is convex and not at all good for lower back support if reading in bed!
Mini bar plus robes and slippers nice touches.
The fan started making a high pitch whining noise on the first night at 12.30am which woke us up, I called Reception who were unable to help - I found that turning on the fans helped remove the whining noise.
The shower is amazing - powerful! You will be squeeky clean!
The swimming pool, sauna and steam room were great, the pool is the same depth throughout and great for kids.
Breakfast was a feast - they have a pancake machine - this was a hit! Excellent quality.
Hotel is in the best location, you cross the road and you are in the shopping centre, you walk down the road and you are in 'The Hub' with all it's restaurants and bars.
Staff were friendly. Parking is £6 per day payable at a machine in the lobby.
I would stay here again and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pomm After a shaky start, we were made comfortable
We came to stay for my nephew's funeral. I was booking three rooms and thought that your hotel was good value. After I had booked the rooms however I noticed underneath we would be charged £6.00 each for car parking. I complained about it and first was told that we would have to pay an hourly rate for parking next door for the council car park. I pointed out that we was not sleeping in the car park and I have never been charged to park at a hotel before. It was agreed that we would not be charged on this occasion and I was grateful but still think it should be shown before you make your final booking. To give you the choice of cancelling in you wish to. However, when we came back from the funeral feeling very drained we were able to relax and order some food and have a drink in the bar area. Where staff were excellent. Thank you for making us comfortable.

The hotel staff were very helpful on the day, hotel was clean & rooms were nice. The only negative was we asked for 2 rooms to be on the same level & request was not noted at time of booking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dolly384 Lovely stay
My husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn, Milton Keynes Friday 18th October 2013. We had a lovely day renewing our vows and went to check into the hotel, the reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The receptionist asked if were having a good day and upon explaining what we had been doing I cheekily asked for an upgrade, in which the lady receptionist upgraded us to an executive room. It absolutely made our day even better, it was a lovely, clean, spacious room and we were thrilled. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left, the staff were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was delicious and we will definately be going back again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tmws66 Nice hotel in a great location
The hotel was nice. Beautiful lobby with a nice bar and restaurant. My only complaint would be that we did not have wash clothes, we did have 2 very nice towels and 2 hand towels. When we called the front desk we were told that the that the standard room did not come with wash clothes. I thought that this was very strange but they did send us up 2. Besides that the room was clean and a good size. Also, it was in a great location for the mall and lots of restaurants and that is why we chose it in the first place. I gave the food and beverage only 2 stars because even though they advertise Starbucks coffee it was not available in the morning when my husband went down, only the very crowded restaurant was serving breakfast.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mrs12 Not impressed
Very disappointed with this hotel.
We were not greeted very nicely when arrived, passed a key not told which room, had we visited before.
Booked excutive room, carpet was covered in stains and bathroom sink and bath tun were blocked so room smelt.
Three huge generators in carpark opposite and not told about this when arrived, no option to change romms.
Will not visit again, shame because the location is very good for the city centre

This hotel is modern, comfortable but most of all the food is excellent. I highly recommend the Prawn Balti, it was cooked to perfection. I have stayed here on two separate occasions and found the staff to be friendly, courteous and happy.
I totally recommend this hotel and its staff.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Forst 1970's
I have stopped in most of the cheaper hotels in MK but thought I'd pay a little extra as my girlfriend was poorly so wanted her to be comfortable. The rooms are very dated, bathrooms are still in the 70's with horrible tiles, tacky shower curtain, like showering at my grandmas 25 years ago! Uncomfortable pillows and the quilt was more like something I'd put in my dogs bed. Didn't use the gym or anything but the room was way off 4 star, won't be stopping there again and I'd tell anyone else to stop at the encore or similar rather than pay the extra for substandard accommodation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Notlad How it should be
From walking into the reception we were made very welcome by the desk staff. Checking in was quick. Met some of the house staff on our way to the room very pleasent and happy. Room was spot on, clean, smart and ready for use. Plenty of tea and coffee. Night reception staff cheerful and as per the day staff couldn't be more helpful. Bar area clean and welcoming again bar staff very helpfull and pleasent. Although we did not dine there during the evening the breakfast and service were excellent, plenty of good choice to eat. Stayed for two nights with out any problems and would return. Added to the enjoyment of the weekend stay. Thank to all the staff for making our stay what it was; very enjoyable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Brenda1954 Sunday breakfast was a disaster
I stayed here a few days and up to Sunday morning, apart from a few minor niggles it was really good. On my last day Sunday I went down to breakfast, firstly I had to go to find someone to ask where I could sit, then the breakfast bar was so poorly stocked I asked a person clearing tables if there was any fresh breakfast items and she went to find out but never returned so I made do with what was there. Then I went in search for someone to get me coffee, eventually found someone who brought me a caffetiere but no milk, to my amazement he went to an empty table and brought me the left over milk and just about ran off before I could say anything. I tried the caffetiere but all it did was spurt boiling coffee over me and my sorry breakfast. I left the restaurant and checked out, I did tell the receptionist about my experience but because I was on a public transport schedule I could not wait for the manager to arrive. I also completed a customer comment card. The receptionist apologised profusely for my experience and did hint that there had been other comments.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by maggie55 very good all round
we have stayed here many times and have already booked for the future, although i will request not to have a room in front of the lifts as this proved to be very noisy ,there was a group of young lads staying, they didn't get back to the hotel till 2.10am and someone knocked on our door and woke us, then again at 3.30am, but they were young and seemed to enjoy themselves.On arrival Jake made us very welcome, and on departure Amanda was very good, both with smiles and very helpful, look forward to our next stay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SamButt Terrible experience
It is the first time i have had such terrible experience at Holiday Inn. Water was leaking from ceiling and due to the leak there was damp in the room and pretty bad smell. I could hardlly sleep on my first night. After i complained the leak was fixed next day but damp was still there and the guys who fixed the lead left their dirty towel and stuff in the toilet. There was blood on towel, i guess the guy who fixed the leak got injured and left that towel in the toilet. Again when i complined next morning i was told that that i will be given 25k reward points to compensate this but it never happend. I checked with the reception and i found out that the points were never requested and they said they will call me back and that didn't happen either.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FridaysChild Decent location and comfortable rooms
This hotel allowed me to check in early, which is always a good start. However, the rest of the stay was just average. The room was comfortable and there were good food and drink offerings, but the staff was not particularly friendly or welcoming. There was no IHG Rewards Club recognition.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lissa79 Not really impressed saving grace was the staff !!!
We were informed that the bar would be open 24 hours but found it shut down by 12.30 am only to be told that the man on reception will open and serve as requested which he did and he was very welcoming and polite, however arriving back to a dark closed down bar area was not at all welcoming.
We felt that nearly £10 for a breakfast was VERY expensive especially when you consider the room price is not particularly cheap either!!
We also found many black hairs in our room on arriving which was a little off putting.
We felt that the fact that the cash machine in the hotel made a £1.75 charge for withdrawals was quite a con - surely a hotel from a international chain such as Holiday Inn could provide their customers with a free cash point???
Overall the staff were very friendly and polite but that is all i can say that we were overly impressed with.
