We've stayed in this hotel many times and would again. The breakfasts are delicious and varied enough to keep a normal eater and vegan satisfied, We have also eaten at the bar too and it was good value. The rooms are simple, clean and comfortable. Lots of parking and there are some great walking routes near by too.

Stayed here for 3 nights on business, mainly due to the low rate and that it had a pool. Well, the pool was closed until further notice, no advance warning. The room was like a lot of student accommodation, clean, basic, sufficient. Food was average, usual burger/chips, pizza, sandwiches, and a buffet restaurant which was not great. Staff friendly, especially the guy in the bar. It is in the middle of nowhere so need to drive if you want better food.

Spent a night here on business. Impossible to find the hotel in the dark - it is just one of many many buildings on the campus, and poorly signposted. Car parking is also poor - the one in front of the building was already full when I arrived and s had to park several hundred yards away and walk to and fro in the cold and wet. The room was fine - if a bit small. However it was what felt like a 2 mile walk from reception down endless corridors. Actually got lost the first time I tried to walk back to reception. Breakfast was included in the £80 cost which is reasonabl for the area; however it was the usual mass-produced rubbish and not worth it. Overall not somewhere I would go back to; hotels in Milton Keynes itself are pricier but better value.

A one night stay for work. It’s not a bad price for what it is. But you are trapped on campus so take books or devices to watch stuff. The rooms are a little small and the bed was a double. The linens were ok and the bathroom was too. Not many toiletries provided so make sure you don’t forget anything. The restaurant wasn’t up to much for dinner and was relatively expensive for the food quality served. It was a buffet rather than TDH and some dishes were better than others. The chicken in cream sauce was good. The nasi goreng was rubbish (but I have been to Indonesia and know what nasi goreng should be). The veggies were sad and drying out under a heat lamp, etc.

Not sure what I expected but was very impressed with the room. Decent size and very clean. Spacious work area too with plenty of sockets. Reception staff were friendly and efficient. Breakfast had a good selection of food and drinks served quickly. The restaurant was not open for dinner on the night we visited and the bar menu was not up to much so ate a the place next door at the recommendation of the reception lady. This was part of the university I think it was very much canteen set up , although the food was ok and very cheap.I would definitely use this place again. Plenty of room to have a meeting with a colleague undisturbed too. Free tea and coffee in the lounges which I thought was a great touch.
