I stayed here for one night for my daughters birthday. We'd visited Woburn Safari Park during the day and were going to Whipsnade with family the following day. We had a lovely stay enhanced by the excellent and very friendly staff. The breakfast was superb with lots of choice. My only criticism at breakfast was the attentiveness of the staff.... More

Beds comfy and clean, great bar area, good selection at breakfast. But on arrival we checked if our breakfast was included, she said yes. Next morning we were told rather loudly our breakfast hadn't been paid for. We said no problem, we'll check at the desk. When we checked out we were made to feel like we had lied about... More

I emailed the hotel prior to my arrival, and requested a high floor room in a quiet area of the hotel. Upon checking in, I was served by a gentleman named Simon. I'm assuming he's quite new, as he first of all told me that I had two rooms booked (when I only had one), and didn't offer me a... More

Stayed for two nights on business room a good size and bed comfortable. Gym a decent size and didn't struggle to get on any of the equipment either early morning or in the evening. Wifi was poor though on this occasion and for a business hotel that's what effected my rating.

Stayed for one night on business - was travelling from the north and needed to get to London in the morning, so thought I would walk to the station and get the fast train. Room was quite spacious and the bed comfortable. Got a good night's sleep - very little noise from outside. For quite a pricey hotel, the building... More

One poorly trained staff can overshadow the whole stay. It was my first stay in this hotel. Treated like thief using breakfast vouchers with family. Stayed in many IHG hotels and this was worst ever. Please teach some basics to you supervisor in breakfast area. I will stay in IHG hotels but for sure not in this one.
