When you have to be away from home on business you still want to be able to relax and feel "at home". The staff at Aylesbury Garden Court are friendly and make you feel relaxed and "at home".

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Garden Court!
You should be aware that this is a Garden Court hotel and this is clearly stated in the description, this type of hotel is a bit of an oddball within the group it's not quite a full service hotel but then it's rooms are better than an Express.
Location is good, reasonably quiet there are pubs and restaurants in walking distance which is a good thing as when you experience the hotels own you'll see why.
Very dated style, the lounge bar restaurant is all one room and resembles a waiting room with eighties decor, drink sir? Hummm I think I'll try a Stella- wise choice it's the only draught pump they have.
Evening food is limited to burger or sandwiches or chips, breakfast on the other hand is very good and cooked to order rather than drying up under a hot lamp.
Staff are nice and if you are a P Club member you get a complementary Club chocolate bar!
With limited hotels in Aylesbury you'll probably find yourself having to try this at some point, but just accept it for what it is.
It's reasonable and the staff do their best, but in reality I'm surprised that IHG allow it to continue to operate under their Holiday Inn brand, it wants doing up and investing in (or knocking down and rebuilding) but then perhaps they don't want to upset the franchisee at the Holiday Inn flagship on the A41

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sarah32 Not your usual holiday inn
Be wary, the restaurant is very poor. Not sure whether the food was made by a chef. Offer of a takeaway as an alternative shows the lack of commitment to providing good food.
My room smelled of smoke.
However rooms are spacious and generally clean. Staff were helpful. Free wi-fi was great. Use of the neighbouring health club was included, but not advertised, strangely.
Overall it is a very dated hotel and nothing like any other Holiday Inn I've been to.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ryobukai Worst Holiday Inn
Dirty, stained carpets and curtains, damp, mouldy, and the restaurant lacks style and imagination - actually resembles someone's lounge!
In serious need of refurbishment or closure - it is reputationally damaging for the Holiday Inn chain.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CCSomerset disappointing, cold and noisy
Two rooms booked - and requested 'good' rooms for a special occasion. Couldn't have been more disappointed. The rooms are very tired and in need of a major refurbishment and update - the rooms were verging on grubby in appearance particularly the bathrooms which are shabby, including paintwork and grouting. Windowframes are unpleasant at best and the noise and wind blows through them to the person on that side of the bed. Other unacceptable noises: the air conditioning/heating system is like something out of the 1950s - this is so loud so don't try to watch tv or make a phone call. And as for the noise from the shower #the water pump# this is also almost deafening, and not just from your own room but also from showers in other rooms in the surrounding area!
Oh dear. We won't be going back. The breakfast staff though were really nice, good and helpful - please make sure they are thanked.
