Quiet room with good views of a beautiful sunset. We were unable to have a light continental breakfast only offered Full English at £10 pp which we thought excesive for what we wanted.
The cleanliness of room and bathroom. The restaurant was really nice as well. 2:30pm check in. Would be better if it could be a bit earlier.
staff were very welcoming, very near to the bars.
The restaurant tried to charge me £20 for two orders of tea and toast so when purchasing small amounts of food, make sure to tell the till operator you are not buying the standard ten pound breakfast. Also, parking costs £1.50 per day.
Close to restaurants Car parking on other side of the street
In city centre near city shopping Non
Excellent location, central. Very good english buffet breakfast!!!
Room was very good, as expected, minor issue with air con sorted out easily and quickly (10 mins) Staff unobtrusive but always available and helpful. Breakfast layout seemed a little confusing (1st stay at this hotel)
The hotel rooms are quiet - you cannot hear next door - breakfast was great too. nothing
it's calm the coffee maker in the room the smell of the towells
Location was good for shopping and motorway staff not very welcoming or reactive to a minor complaint
Friendliness of the staff. I felt the room could have been a bit "tidier" for a 4 star hotel.
Very polite staff and made everything as easy as posible for us as we were doing the milton keynes triathlon and wanted to bring all of our eqipment to the room, so provided us with a ground floor.
Location Lack of air conditioning in the room.
the security was bad . the window was broken into and my bag stolen .. DONT accept a room on the ground floor. The food was expensive and was the worst I had ever eaten .a small piece of dry chicken and some dry chips . small choc cake and tiny scoop of ice cream .. £19 ...
the free parkjing it had a very old and worn out look
Friendly staff, nice environment. Location is a bit "out of the way"
The staff were absolutely excellent I can't fault them one bit, but the pool looks bigger on the pictures, the meals are way over priced the walls are hallow and our 'double bed' was 2 singled together not happy
As with most business allowances my stay was controlled by a budget and your hotel just fell within my company allowance but overall the politeness of all of the staff in particular the receptionist upon checking out. The cellar cooler was broken therefore the drinks were warm. For below answer there were no guest reviews on this hotel at the time of booking.
Everything was very nice, clean tidy good staff attitude would certainly stay again, we did stay in the Ramada Encore on the way out (city centre) no comparison Ramada was very noisy rooms very small, if you want a quite pleasant stay & don't mind driving or getting a taxi to the city centre 5 mins away this is the one to stay at. No complaints
not much, maybe decent TV set in the room - room shower was not working the first day, -one of the worst value for money dinner (GBP 15-20) I have ever seen (fried prawns I ordered were a few pieces of some unidentifiable oily discusting matter as a starter), no reaction on the complaint made
Room was nice staff were friendly, unfortunatley I only checked into my room and had a quick breakfast and left so no time to relax and enjoy!
Very clean, Staff friendly and professional, spacious. Close to football ground. Restaurant good. Not really bad, but taps in bath difficult to operate,noise from corridor at night.
Room very clean and tidy. bathroom very clean. Some noise from other rooms, not sure if enough sound insulation
A fabulous modern hotel, great facilities,exceptionally clean,breakfast served until 11am which was very tasty and well presented and a welcoming late midday checkout too!. Extremely polite chap on reception.Ideal location for shopping and theatre. Would highly recommend a weekend break at this hotel...
Everything, from helpfull staff to decoration None
I was attending the football match at MK Dons Staduim. No
Good hotel , rooms etc and we did get a small £41 refund due to the problems encountered below. Hotel had made no provision for hotel services for the Ulster Rugby guests who were staying there. (Most of the guests). On Sunday 10th, contrary to the e-mails we had received in February, all of the bar and restaurant facilities had been let out to Northampton corporate clients (not hotel Guests) and no provision made for hotel guests. Many of us had to go to the adjacent asda store to obtain beer and we were obliged to sit out on the grass with this before the Northampton v Ulster match!!
Very comfortable bed which meant a good nights sleep! Breakfast could have been better. There were only two pieces of bread left and no plates to put it on after it had been toasted. We had to ask twice for side plates for our table and the salt cellar didnt work.
The location There was no hot water in the room due to problems with a boiler. No one advised us of this until we complained even though they were aware of the problems.
the rooms had luxury fittings. the bed was very comfortable including the pillows. the bathroom was well stocked and clean. the hotel bar shut at 11.30pm. It was disappointing when we arrived back from a party and was unable continue catching up with friends
Nice place with park. Easy and close parking. Efficient reception personnel. Shower system. So typically British...
The building and surroundings are very pretty from outside.The corridor carpets leading to my room were very shabby and in need of replacement, these did not give a very good first impression at all. The room however was better than expected with a flat screen tv, a lovely big comfy bed and an impressive bathroom. The room was very cold and i found it difficult to sleep during the night as a result of this. No radiators but air con unit may have been able to give out heat but we could not figure out how to get warm air from it or if it was possible?
The room was comfortable and well priced. There was confusion over the billing of another room's meals to my account which took some time to sort out.
Not much The price of drinks was outrageous ! The receptionist was unsmiling and curt. The duvets were far too hot.
The staff were efficient, the room was excellent, I have paid a lot more and had worse facilities The food on the room service menu was expensive
the location the staff forgot to give me the promised wake up call and I nearly missed my meeting
The staff were very helpful and friendly but we felt disorganised. As above, disorganised, did not pay attention to detail with regard to the wedding function we were attending, They forgot to serve canapes with the pre wedding breakfast drink, the food was bland, and service disorganised.
THE most comfortable bed n/a
The room was well furnished and the views were nice
We were there for the concert at the National Bowl, the hotel was well placed for walking, there were also nice bars and restaurants nearby and also a shopping centre. The breakfast was very nice too.. The hotel was great and the staff were very friendly, nothing we didnt like
Clean, Friendly staff. How water not working in 1st room but given another room with no hassle.
the staff,esp duty manager were very helpful. very impressed with their customer service. leisure facilities need updating
Free swimming pool, free parking, very close to a shopping centre, quiet in the night. Overpriced, internet 15 GBP for 24 hours (and it was broken in my room), parking was full all the time.
Clean, friendly staff, good area for shopping. Prices in the bar, like most hotels it stops you staying at hotel for drinks.
The hotel was ideally located for the Hub only a short walk and its surrounding facilities.
Very helpful and friendly staff Coffee needs to improve. It would be nice to have espresso coffee. Rest of breakfast was excellent
Clean comfortable rooms. The staff were helpful, breakfast buffet very good. Parking was easy. Booked two deluxe rooms , one had a balcony the other did not , I felt that they should have been the same.
Pleasant staff....excellent and extremely helpful duty manager NICK...really makes u feel comfortable when staff are child friendly No
It was all good I had a very nice time thank you None
the room was nice and clean , the staff in the morning was very helpfull and nice none
The staff were excellent and very helpful. The food in the restaurant was excellent too for both evening meal and breakfast. The outside door lock appeared to be broken. Last time we visited some 4 years ago we had to use our key card to get into the building but the lock seemed to have been damaged.
Only a short walk to restaurants and pubs
Restaurant being on site
Comfortable, good value for money for mid-range, serves as a good over-nighter when travelling for business.
Freindly staff & clean room No towels in room
Service, Peace and Quiet No
A really nice location on the edge of Milton Keynes. Friendly helpful staff. Good sized room. No complaints
The hotel was easy to find and park. The hotel security was poor
Its proximity to Woburn Abbey The majority of the other guests on the Saturday evening were from the nearby GAY.LESBIAN & TRANSGENDER CLUB
Reception, breakfast quick check in and out Rooms are not so modern anymore hard to find at night, no signs on the road !
The hotel was quiet, clean and had some good facilities such as a swimming pool. Breakfast was included. We would stay here again. There were really no bad points about our stay.
i would like to have a copy of my bill,as i did not receive one
Helpfull and curteous staff. Free wifi and convenient location near a5 Some part of the hotel while clean and functional seemed a little tired and in need of updating, especially after coming through a modern well designed reception area. Wish net curtains had been fitted to downstairs rooms.
A bit dated
The location for business meeting The gym facilities were rather sparse, as was the room service menu.
staff were amenable to my required requests - dinner before 7pm on sat night as I had 2 young children who needed feeding early. Very freindly staff - thank you dinner late and breakfast at weekend late with only room service option for early starts which was only continental and basic at that.
The place was clean, the reception staff were friendly and the location was quiet The bar shuts at 11pm irrespective of whether there are reasonable numbers of guests in the bar
The value for money and access to a restaurant - altough not used on this occassion. Staff were excellent. Finding 3 black hairs in the bed - rather off putting. This is not a complaint - just a heads up re need to be careful re 'stray hairs'.Tiredness of the decor, stains/ marks on walls. Would recommend with warning re decor, so expectations are realistic. Suspect/ hope bed was a one off issue.
Clean room Tv reception extremely bad in room. Floorboards need attention - a guest staying in the room above was walking around at 1.30am, 4.00am & 5.15am every time woke me because floorboards were creeking so much.
Proximity to work locations
Clean and friendly Nonthing
Very good value. Would not recommend Harvester Pub which is adjacent to the Holiday Inn. Very poor meal. Insufficient lighting in room.
I have stayed at this hotel many times as it is near to my parents.I think the staff are second to none, they are helpful, polite, and pleasant. I like the design and layout of the hotel it is very comfortable. I like the nearnes to Willen Lake. Nothing I did not like.
Very clean hotel and room n/a
Well placed for the purpose of my visit, and an early breakfast which fitted in well with my timetable
A very pleasant hotel, with attractive bar and communal areas. Would have beeen nice if they had prepared the sofa bed for the kids, but that's just being picky.
Efficient staff, good ground floor lounge and bar/eating areas, better than expected continental breakfast. Not enough tea/coffee/sugar provided in the room, also one of the milk cartons was 'off'.
size and cleanliness of room and plenty and good choice of breakfast
Parking Directions were not great
customer service at @ reception
The hotel was very close to the city centre They did not have a note of our reservation but luckily they had rooms available otherwise we would have been stuck!! The bed was very uncomfortbale - there weren't any pillows, just cushions. The shower was not very clean (mould around the edges) but the rest of the room was very clean and well presented
very comfortable the staff were all very uninterseted
pool + price
great price, clean and comfortable.room service food was lovely. didnt have the breakfast as thought £12 was a bit too much
Rooms/breakfast was an excellent deal drinks very expensive. asked for coke, lemonade and small water and was charged £8.35. When I queried this it was reduced to £7.35 - still high! Evening meal also expensive for quality of food. Confusion over payment - when we arrived I was told I had paid on booking. When I checked out was told i had not paid and was charged
Clean, particularly bathrooms Staff excellent Terrible pillows made a bad nights sleep. Cheap stuffing meant your head rolled off and the square shape, whilst looking 'cool' meant that your head fell off the edge when turning over. Towels too small.
We enjoyed our stay in the hotelm the breakfast was very good.
really helpful staff,great location,everything we were looking for in a short break pillows not very good and bar prices a little high
Very helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Good fitness facilities. Lovely breakfast. Very convenient for theatre and shops. Car park very safe and secure. Generous check out time and breakfast served until 12
Good shopping location One of our rooms was meant to be 2 single beds. All it was was the double bed with a 'put you up' bed beside it. No duvet was left for the spare bed and my daughter made do with a sheet and blanket. The blanket cupboard was found to contain 14 large empty Cider cans - the staff did attend to remove them but it indicates poor cleaning procedure. Used sticking plaster found stuck to the wall in the swimming pool. In summary - some work needs to be done on the detailed cleaning of the establishment.
Good Food large servings Room was smokey even thogh it was a no smokeing room
cereal and fruit juices for breakfast were complimentary but we paid a bit extra (£3-4) for english breakfast. hotel adjoined to pub/restrauant which has very reasonably priced food with excellent staff manning the bar. tv only had 3 chanels with poor reception
It was situated in a convenient place for the training course I was going to.
Tidy and good location Had to chase receptioist as no one on desk & phone not answered
It was conveniently close to where we wanted to stay Hotel staff not very friendly on reception no smile and no eye contact with us the guests and the room had a funny smell. Bathroom a bit dated
Excellent staff, nothing too much trouble. Wonderful for children, food ,play area. Could do with a residents lounge. Finding the hotel from Milton Keynes a nightmare as you end up in a building site, this should be mentioned.
The bar food menu was very good. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room next door had the TV on very loud making it difficult to sleep. The tap washer in the basin hot tap needed fixing.
nice pub and rooms
The location. Bathroom suite
The breakfast was very good value for money, amd the staff were friendly the bed was a bit too soft and there was a cockroach in the bathroom.
the hotel was a good one night stopover, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the proprietors were helpful and friendly.
Very clean. Helpful staff. Good food. Reasonably priced. No en-suite bathroom. Hotel is in the course of undergoing a major refurbishment. Breakfast 0700 to 0800.
Not a lot! The staff were nice and courteous if you could find one! Room we stayed in was quite a large room with plenty of space. Not really what i expecetd. Our en-suite had no toilet! This had to be shared with other customers! Room was not very clean as the carpet was dirty with the obligaory house fly to give us company!
price you pay for what you get ,.... no tiolet in room etc
There was absolutely nothing I liked about this hotel. The absolute filthy carpet in the bedroom.
Friendly efficient staff, clean good sized rooms, good bathrooms Breakfast disappointing - limited fruit/cereals/light breakfast options
Very comfortable, as the hotel is mainly set up to host conferences and large groups, it is slightly impersonal for single travellers / couples
I thought the room was ok. I thought the food was excellent. The location wonderfull. I would have liked a the terrestrial channels on the TV if I had stayed longer.
My room was cold and I had a cold shower in the morning. I did complain to reception - but was not compensated in any way. I did however really like the venue.
Was suprised thought it was a country hotel turned out to be a modern conference center attached to an old building See above - fine for a conference but probably not a selection for a hotel stay - also long long walk through many corridors to room - if you have more than hand luggage you don't want to take it in
safe parking , quiet room and leisure facilities leisure facilities opened 7am an earlier opening would facilitiate morning exercise.
The price of the food in the hotel is extortionate. i had a small bowl of salad in the bar on my first nights stay. £15. On my second night, i was told i was not allowed to eat in the bar and that i had to eat in the restaurant. i had the same small bowl of salad and was charged £25! Outrageous
good breakfast and friendly waiting staff hot tap did not work for bath. reported to reception but was not attended to during 3 night stay
lovely countryside nice hotel and staff a little too big
I liked the location of the hotel and the reception staff were very helpful and booked meals outside the hotel for us. The spa facilities were a joke the pool tempature was tepid/cold the jacuzzi was not working and the the seperation of the mens lockers from the spa was not user frendly. The arrangements for breakfast were the lowest standard I have experienced ant any other Hayley hotel and I have stayed at Swindon eastwood and the Palace Manchester, with lack of choice and buffet not being topped up proberly.
Coffee and tea very welcome.. Rooms clean and as I would have expected. Good value for money. Reception area did not do justice to a Premier Inn, little more than a passage. Staircases and passages had a bad smell, and were intimidating.
There were limited outlets in the room. I have a breathing machine to assist me when I sleep and it is difficult to lay comfortably with only one outlet across the room from the bed.
Convenient, clean and quiet None
The hotel had lovely views, the room was clean and had everything needed for an overnight stay. Breakfast had a good selection and veggie options were taken to order. There is no lift. Had to ask for tea bags and coffee etc for the room as there was none already in there.
Good location by the lake, but only 10 minutes away by car from the Xscape centre which we were visiting
Being able to take my dog to stay with me! It was very noisy as there was a big party going on taking up most of the hotel - just a one off though
Room was well presented and very nice. Staff were polite and helpful. The main concern I had is the confusing method of paying for my hotel room. I was under the assumption I had paid when I booked the rooms, my card was then swiped when I checked in and I had a reciept for the full payment. I was then informed when I checked out I had to pay and my card was swiped again. I have only paid once (it would appear) but have never got so confused by having to enter my card details on three seperate occasions.
Lovely surroundings. Good breakfast. Apart from arrival it was all very clean and efficient. Reception on arrival was poor. They had taken no notice of my booking confirmation and even aftre changing rooms I still did not get a double bed.
convenience for Luton airport and m1
- Managed to book a room at an exceptional rate. - Staff were very friendly and efficient - Food was top notch
Clean, comfortable quiet room Poor lighting in the bar, not enough seating.
Reasonable price, nice spacious room, parking, free wi fi, pets allowed FOC Only minor niggle was that the ground floor room I had asked for was up 4 steps which made it difficult for me as I had a trolley full of cat carriers and other items plus a large suitcase.
Location, privacy, pleasant staff, nice room/bathroom bed could have been firmer - and a double bed against a wall is not ideal
We were made to feel very welcome by all staff No complaints
excellent room, helpful staff, decent food. noise from late arriving guests, doors slamming, plant room beneath room noise.
No stairs as requested. Good fOOD Lacked local people with familiraty to stony
Good position with plenty to do in town Late party with loud music playing. No lights working on the corridor of the Coach House
Good service and value.
We attended a wedding reception which was organised very well - our room was comfortable. No dislikes at all
Good value. Reasonably comfortable room well equipped.Breakfast choices good. Staff friendly. Room decor rather tired. Room a little cramped, therefore bed not a large double. Lighting in room rather dull.Some delay in getting the order of things right at breakfast E.g long wait for tea/coffee, toast not arriving with main breakfast.
Comfortable hotel with interesting history
The food was excellant
good food,warm and comfortable room lack of television channels in room ,could only get 4 tv stations ,no channel five
It was quieter than we expected which was good. Had a good feel to it. It will be better when the renovations are complete. It will be an achievement to complete by 9th!
I was looking for a rustic village inn with some character, this is exactly what I got, wooden beams in the room and antique furniture, slanting floors and creaking floorboards. The Cock Hotel is comfy and cosy and very welcoming. Perfect for a weekend getaway, we would defintely go back. Very happy customer.
Was near where I wanted to be attitude of staff, lack of atmosphere, lack of fellow customers!!
Although a basic hotel, it was clean and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Evening meals not readily available
friendly & helpful staff
Very friendly staff, the owners go out of their way to accomodate anything that you need. This is our 2nd time visiting for an event close by. Would diffinately use it again/ Only thing that I would say is that the dining area lacked warmth other than that everything else was great!
I liked very little about this hotel. Only thing I did like was being able to leave. The staff where slow, not fit to run a hotel. There were only 3 members of staff working. The hotel smelt stale and the decor was old. The food was terrible and very over priced and the beer was stale in the bar. On leaving I was charged 3 times breakfast. The breakfast itself was terrible £7.50 for a portion a child would be hungry after eating, continental was no better unless you like dry croisants and fruit that looks like it had been there since the war. For those who remember Fawlty Towers then I would rather stay there than in this hotel again.
It was a bit expensive considering the grade of the hotel.
Smoking rooms No carpets in the guesr rooms.
staff Food menu was limited
Cannot think of any The mattress on the bed was 'lumpy' and very uncomfortable and I almost got scalded with the shower.
In easy reach of where I needed to be. Room basic. Shower was like the ones you stick on the taps at home.
