We booked a one night stay here to attend a family party. The main reason for booking it was because it was cheap - we paid £64 for a double room. The room was fairly roomy, clean and well presented. There wasn't a wardrobe, only a hanging space and some shelves but that was fine as we only had a... More

Dear gringo2000 Thank you for your review, we have recently removed our pool table in an effort to create more space as this is always needed. I am glad that you would stay with us again and hopefully that means we will be welcoming you back again soon. Kind Regards Sam More

I stayed here prior to an athletics competition in Bedford, and so it was very important to me to get a good night's sleep. Unfortunately it was very noisy, with a parent an child (inexplicably) returning noisily at around 1am, and two very loud and drunken bouncers staying opposite us. I get that we were probably just unlucky in being... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as we were staffing a fleet event at Millbrook Proving ground. The hotel is clean and modern - exactly what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express - what makes it special are the staff. Friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. 10/10
