Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AfterSixFlowers A little more choice would make it better
We booked this hotel thinking that it would have food available in a restaurant. We were a bit disappointed that there wasn't a restaurant as such, just breakfast service. However, as it was on a site with a Harvester, the lack of a restaurant was not important, and I can well see why they didn't bother to include one.
The hotel as a whole was very comfortable and we had an enjoyable stay. The only thing that marred it was the uncontrolled children tearing up and down the corridor outside our room at 0730 on a Sunday morning shouting "I've won, I've won". Yes you did win - a prize for waking everyone up! Their father did manage a mumbled grudging apology. Might it be an idea to put people with young children near to the lifts/entrances so they have no need to go down the corridors at all?
Breakfast choice was a bit limited. NO bacon, only scrambled eggs, one type of (processed) cheese. No grapefruit.
Despite the minor gripes, yes we would stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nemo1001 An excellent situation
This was probably the best presented low-cost hotel that we have stayed in. The room was particularly good - comfortable and very clean. The hotel is in a quiet office park within a few minutes walk of a large recreational lakeside area. The restaurant food is simple but sensibly priced.

This time i had no more hair on my bed and some additional platinum status benefits, but the shower didn't work some days.
That's a "no-go" for me

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Buggle55 Nice hotel, breakfast could be better
We stayed here for two nights on the first floor. It was a really quiet room towards the back of the hotel and we didn't hear much noise from other guests.
The room was large and had everything we needed for the weekend.
The breakfast options were good, the issue was that on each morning, nothing was being restocked unless you went and found someone and asked for it to be refilled. Cereals were empty, one day there were no forks, the next no knives, milk had run out. Once you asked, it was dealt with immediately, but the staff should have been checking this and making sure things were available. I stayed here last year too and it was exactly the same then.
Other than that, I would definitely recommend the hotel as it's in a great location and handy for everything in Milton Keynes. There's a Harvester right next door which was also really convenient.
If there was free Wi-Fi, it would be even better.

Hotel excellent for most business aspects. Once you find it ( roundabouts can be confusing) the welcome is friendly, the rooms comfortable and clean and good choice of food. Very good value for money.

Basically I was on an Omron training course which was within a few hundred yards from the hotel.
The rooms were clean and tidy. The area was relaxing.
The harvester was close by for meals.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigKahunna456 Comfort at a reasonable price
I sometimes stay here if I get tired on my way back from dropping off my daughter at the weekend.
I will usually get a room despite having not booked in advance, the price is very reasonable considering the quality of the room and the fact that I have not pre-booked, the rooms are not really large but they are really modern, comfortable and most importantly warm. I have stayed in hotels for twice the price and not being as comfortable. Breakfast is ok too. a reasonable choice of breakfast cereals or scrambled eggs.

We have stayed at Holiday Inn three or four times now, and have enjoyed each stay. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. We were well impressed with the beds this time.

Shame because we love the Flexibility of this hotel chain.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by guppyworld Lovely place and good room quality.
I was amazed at the quality and size of the family room at this holiday Inn, keeping expectations low (for the price it was very cheap) I was pleased by the cleanliness and customer service. the young lady at reception was very polite and I was amazed to see here there when we checked in, left the bar at 10pm, and then still there at 8am in the moning looking cheerful happy. (do your employees never sleep?). The only let down was that someone let of an door / fire alarm at 3am which woke up and scared my children, which left me with an unsettled remainder of the night.
Other than that I woudl recommend again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dessido Good facilities, staff brilliant
We stayed here to attend a swimming gala. We had to be up and out earlier than the advertised breakfast. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, they made sure we had breakfast available to set us up for the day. The rooms are clean, comfortable and not too hot unlike some other branded hotels I have used in the past. Be warned though the Harvester does get busy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aldershot Football crazy
My wife and i were going to a football game in near by Northampton and as we live in Surrey we thought we would stay overnight on the Friday. Well we wasn't expecting alot because we really only wanted a bed for the night but when we opened the door of our room we was more then impressed, the bed was a king size and it really was ''king size'' with a choice of pillows the general decor was of a high standard and we found holiday inn had thought of everything including a hair dryer by the full length mirror which even alot of 5* hotels we have stayed at had not thought of, the bathroom was also very nice with a seperate toilet very impressed with the whole deal which was very reasonable. And last but not least the staff were very nice and proffessional ''Well done Holiday Inn''

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VicW Great staff, friendly atmosphere
I've been staying at this hotel for some time now on various business trips. It was always a good hotel for the range but it's actually getting even better.
The rooms are always spotless and fresh. There is a good selection of food whether you eat in or even order in.
Finally, the staff are fantastic. Travelling as much as I do on business, it's great to not feel like a number when you check in. Always friendly, very professional and happy to help with any particular requests. I.d especially like to mention Michelle, Ricky and Linzi who always help make my stay a positive one.
Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else when I'm in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Really Good.
We stayed here for one night whist visiting family in the area. I asked for a quiet room on booking as we have two young children, we were given a room at the end of the building and didn't hear any noise all night.
I found the staff to be friendly and professional (Nicole) and the room was nice and clean. Our shower had a slight leak but I didn't find it to be much of a problem overall and would happily stay here again.
The breakfast was really good with a good choice of really tasty food and drink which the staff were constantly replenishing so as not to run out. The highchairs could do with improvement, but again I didn't find this too much of a problem.
Overall a nice clean hotel with friendly staff, clean rooms and a great breakfast! Would recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kenneth007 Excellent value for money - and comfortable with it!
We satyed one night as part of our visit to Bletchley Park. The hotel was easy to find via satnav. Reception staff were immediately helpful and welcoming. The room was quite large, huge bed with choice of pillows (soft/firm). Large flat screen TV. Bright, sparkling bathroom with good shower. All in all, very comfortable. The breakfast was reasonable, particularly as it was included in the room-rate - hot sausage, scrambled egg, beans, toast, hot and cold drinks, muffins, yoghurt. Excellent value, and very convenient location.

-We had with the children a very good experience. We were allowed to check in well before 3pm and the breakfast was very good and the staff were very friendly. We had free and good quality internet in the reception area.
-We thought the rooms need a fridge which would be essential in summer. We also expected the tv to contain a little bit more than the free view program.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Debs62 Good hotel for the money
My daughter and I stayed here recently and found it perfectly adequate. Room was a decent standard and clean and comfortable. However, mattress cover seemed to be loose so sheet kept rucking up during the night. Have no complaints about this hotel and will stay again.....just one little niggle....at intervals during the night I was woken by quite loud talking outside. I had a room near the main entrance (209) and I think it was hotel staff having a cigarette break. It happened around 11.30 then I heard it again around an hour later and then again at 2.30ish. Same loud male voice and I didn't have the window open.

Very pleased with accommodation,breakfast and staff. Only complaint was not hotels fault and related to other guests making excessive noise along corridor during early hours of the morning.No noise from adjoining guest rooms which made a change from other hotels. Overall a pleasant stay and we hope to visit again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by leckier1970 Brilliant Value, nice experience
I’ve stayed her a few times and find the staff pleasant and the hotel acceptable within the remit of an express / premier inn type of establishment. I love the fact that you get choice of pillow however i don’t know if it’s just me but the beds are way to springy for me. Don’t be put off though great value for money and fairly comfortable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by theron Nice stay, don't plan on internet
The hotel is excellent and the breakfast great value for money. My only sticking point is that the free lobby internet isn't fast or reliable enough to use to get work done. The paid internet was more than adequate for my needs, but adds 15% onto the cost per night of staying at the hotel, reducing the value for money.
