Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Snowboarder Great for snozone visit and ice skating
The room wasn't ready and they warned me about noise from discos but gave us 3 three drinks and crisps which was a nice gesture. This is a perfect location to go to the snozone and ice skating. We had dinner in wagamamas. The bed was too hard for my taste and our room was painted navy blue in parts which made it seem smaller. Good tv tho'. The breakfast was excellent, free range eggs, pancakes, good bread etc etc etc. We made use of the pool too. I'd stay again but I'd take my own pillow and maybe a memory foam mattress topper! Bar area is quite nice too and staff helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jewels57 Close to Shops and Bars
We had stayed in this Holiday Inn before, so when we needed to visit family thought of this one straight away. The only problem we had was that we could not get into the car park to even drop off our luggage. I had to get out of the car and go into Reception where I was told the car park was full, even so we would of excepted to be able to drop the luggage off but was told I would have to find a parking space else where. Due to all the car parks being very busy/full we had to park quite away away so this ment carrying our luggage, this did not help our mood.
I can say other than the parking the staff were very helpful on other issues/information. Room was quite cool but used the free standing heater in the room to boost the heating.
Breakfast was very good, one of the best we have had in a HI, very fresh.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Metalstar A memorable change from the normal average hotels
Couldn't fault this hotel.
In easy walking distance of lots of shops and restaurants, location couldn't be better.
The room we had was a family executive, with a double bed and a double 'put you up'.
Food was great, not ridiculously expensive - breakfast was also excellent.
You do have to pay for your car parking, which is slightly annoying (just put it on the price of the room!)
However, we genuinely lost our car park ticket, but reception just gave us a free exit ticket!
Unexpected, but shows this hotel has excellent customer service.
Definitely going back to this hotel, highly recommended!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BadDog Why go anywhere else!!
Another great stay, Reception staff were cheerful, personal and helpful, bar staff knowledgable and the breakfast team very happy despite the early start.
The food was excellent and the room comfortable, nothing was to much trouble for the team.
One slight negative and that was the cheesboard was served straight from the fridge, could be chef was busy plucking turkeys and stuffing feathers into much sought after pillows ;-)
I hope for many happy returns.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Djna Great location, glitch dealt with
Very convenient central location, shopping and bars and restaurants in easy walking distance. Modern, well-appointed hotel, generally efficient and welcoming staff.
One minor glitch: bar meal of a lamb curry was simply inedible supposedly slow-cooked, tender lamb was clearly undercooked and very tough and in a most undistinguished sauce, really tasted as though a teaspoon of curry powder had been added at the last minute. How any professional kitchen could serve this was beyond me, so out out keeping with the otherwise high quality of the establishment. On the plus side though when I returned the meal the staff were suitably apologetic, and took good remedial measures.
Quite an expensive place to stay, presumably because MK hotels are very busy, but with the exception of that curry one of the better Holiday Inns I've stayed in.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bobbi180 Appauling staff and experience
Arrived to rude front desk staff, asked for feather pillows told no as housekeeping was not available at 12:30am
Allocated disabled room and not informed upon checkin. despite booking std double room.
Room was cold as heating was not working, despite placing a storage heater in the room this wasn't turned on in preparation of an platinum member.
in the morning i had to kneel down to have a shower as the room was a disabled room, upon notifying desk staff, no apology was offered escalated to Duty Mgr who investigated nothing in hour and half. Escalated Further to regional mgr who claimed there was no error in allocating a disabled room despite i booked a std room also he didn't understand my frustration in having to kneel down to have a shower as the room was not designed fir able-bodied inviduals. Will be certainly taking my business elsewhere.

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 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.

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.
