“Rooms Dated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Expensive for a Holiday Inn Express, rooms first version. Public areas have been updated but not the rooms. Only choice to eat is the Harvester on the other side of the car park. Location alright but 5 minutes drive from MK centre. Usually quite busy.

Thank you for your review and for the positive points you have highlighted such as the modern Reception/Lounge area and the hotel's location.
I am sorry that you felt our rooms were dated, as we have invested a significant amount of money in refurbishing our rooms with new Flat screen Tv's, new carpets and regular re painting schedules.
As well as the Harvester restaurant adjacent to the hotel we also have our own In-house restaurant, Monday through to Thursday as well as a 24hr, 7 days a week bar menu that includes a range of Pizzas and Chinese snack boxes.

Recently stayed at the hotel again and as usual you could not fault the hotel and it's staff. Everyone is so polite and will always exceed your expectations to help you if need be.

As per my last review of this hotel it has everything you require if you are staying here on business or visiting Milton Keynes and need some where for a base.

Will continue to use the Holiday Inn Express MK whenever I visit Milton Keynes whether its on business or pleasure. Keep up the great work!

We were made to feel welcome and was pleased with the stay. Overall it was very clean and tidy, quiet and would give this a 5*. Food was served nice and hot, the tv on our room had more than enough channels for us.
We asked for directions and was very satisfied with the information we recieved about the surrounding areas. Would recommend and would stay again.

I spent two nights here while running two on-site training courses. The hotel was very good. Helpful reception staff, clean comfortable rooms and six hours free wifi in the lounge. Breakfasts are included and very generous. I had a decent steak for dinner, but there's always the Harvester across the car park.
Best of all was the quality of the training/conference rooms. Set in a separate wing, the rooms are light, well-equipped and comfortable. There's a plentiful supply of free coffee and biscuits in the break-out area. A first class venue!

Stayed at this hotel only for one night ,its a shame we could not stop longer. The hotel was very comfortable and welcoming. The hotel appears at first sight to be much smaller than it actually is.
It was our first time at an Holiday Iinn Express and thoughly enjoyed the layout of the hotel the hotel room the attitude of the staff and would deffinately return when visiting in the area.

Dining at breakfast was a bit of a scramble in the morning though as it was practically full on the night we stayed. You pick a table, help yourself to a variety of hot and cold dishes and use your trays to return the plates and utencils to the tray stacking trolly. Dont let this put you off as on the whole beakfast was very nice and it added to the Holiday Inn Express experience. Over all the stay was a pleasent experience and deffinately would return as mentioned previously.

Room Tip: just about a mile off the M1 juncton 14

Somehow I chose a hotel in the wrong location. I do not have car so was using public transport so at first glance this hotel, well out of Milton Keynes by public transport seemed a mistake. However, what a find. If you have a car, do not hesitate - the hotel is fantastic value. We also found the Harvester, next door, good value. The rooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was extremely busy but the food was replenished promptly and we found seating without too much bother.

Most importantly, the staff were really pleasant and helpful. The check in and check out were efficient and they found us a good taxi company which we used that to visit Bletchley Park.

We booked to stay over a Saturday night ready for competition the next day, two adults and three gymnasts and found the service very good and both rooms that we booked were immaculate, reception staff certainly new what they were doing which is a refreshing change. We were up early on Sunday morning, 07.30 for breakfast and found it was all ready and a great selection of hot and cold fair. I would defiantly stay here again if we are in Milton Keynes
