“Odd but fun...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

It's certainly strange staying somewhere attached to a football ground, but its well embraced & a lot of fun. The main restaurant overlooks the pitch & doubles as a directors lounge & you even use the same gym as the players! Rooms/food/service top notch.

We stayed at this hotel due to the reviews on Tripadvisor and its proximity to Silverstone. We found the hotel without any problems with the aid of a Sat Nav and the car park was fine despite the current ongoing construction work outside. It has to be said the Construction work caused no problems to us during our stay. The hotel itself appears modern and spacious when you enter and the staff were helpful and efficient at both check in and check out. The rooms were of a good size and well kitted out with everything you could require for a short stay. The room was clean and the fridge was a welcome bonus. As has been mentioned elsewhere the beds were comfy and enabled a good nights sleep. We stayed for breakfast, which if booked during check-in costs an additional £10 per adult. Again at breakast the staff were efficient and helpful and the food was of a good standard with a wide selection of hot and cold buffet style fare. We wouldnt hesitate to recommend this hotel to others.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the football pitch will be quieter and you get a unique view of the pitch - howeve...

We got a great rate, £40, on Late Rooms and booked the hotel for its proximity to Silverstone. Can't really complain for the cost, very comfortable bed, everything you needed in room but nothing special about the hotel (unless you are a MK football fan) and not up to the style standard of other Double Tree hotels we have stayed in (Leeds and Manchester), so on that basis a bit disappointing. We did very much enjoy our cookies on arrival though, nice touch and delicious.

Nice hotel but to get anywhere u will need a taxi! Free parking is good & so is the breakfast they do a good selection of hot & cold. It's lovely eating breakfast overlooking the stadium. But in my opinion it's pritty average like a 3 star doesn't have any wow factors

using the map on the website and our GPS left us at a building site after a 5 hour drive at 10pm.
Nearly 40 minutes later before we found it. Unhelpful and not putting us in best of moods. Check in staff seemed pretty disinterested, even when we showed the map. No, oh sorry, just "here's your key"
I suspect that he was tired by that time but we had to ask for info on breakfast, parking etc Nothing volunteered.
Room decidedly average - didn't seem to get any sort of benefit as a hhonors gold.
Next morning breakfast wasn't available on time and we'd a 15 mins wait for hot food- we needed to underway ASAP.

Breakfast itself was average.

Overall it was a bed in a clean hotel. It lacked character and welcome.
I'd not hurry back. In fact for my needs for a business hotel in MK next week, I've not chosen this place

The room was clean, double glazing kept out the noises from the construction workers but the wind got into the air vents and whistled around like noisy water pipes. Comfy bed. Tea and coffee in the room, but just one 'signature' cookie for a 2 night stay! Breakfast was waiting on the hot plates and nothing was quite hot enough.
Would only stay there again if there was no where else, but if you wanted a footballing package with easy parking and meals then it would be worth the extra.

Apologies that our breakfast wasn’t up to scratch on this occasion. We have a new way of doing breakfast which started on the 3rd October, I’m confident that this will improve the quality breakfast.

Our cookies are freshly baked every day, so if you join us again (and we hope you do) please feel free to ask our reception team for more.

I stayed here at the Doubletree Hotel at Milton Keynes for 2 nights. The hotel is great and its built on the side of the beautiful Milton Keynes Association Football statuim. The room was lovely and had everything for a business trip. I didnt find the bed that comfortable but I slept well. The staff were great and looking out at the football staduim was a sight to remember.
The evening dinner was ok. Although it was free for me it was overpriced and tasteless. Posh and fancy named food is great if it taste good. However the breakfast was wonderfull and I looked like a stuffed pig afterwards. Worth staying just for the breakfast. Definately I will come again. If you are thinking of coming try and do it when Milton Keynes Dons play at home.
