Decent hotel, friendly staff and worth a visit. Having to pay to park at a hotel always sticks in my throat so that is one area for improvement. The rooms are clean it a little dated but typical, in a good way, of the brand

On Friday the 18th of November (early evening) I had the pleasure of encountering a most welcoming, and openhearted experience at the Holiday Inn Central Milton Keynes. I visited reception to inquire about using the gym and its location. Subsequently, I was informed by a staff member (a person I later found out went by the name of Jodie), that...

Lovely hotel, lovely food and etc, service however is different, requested extra pillows in the night and was completely forgotten about and the car parking is ridiculous, there's 86 spaces to 100-200 rooms so we were forced to park outside their barriers to pay £2 an hour or 50p an hour if we didn't mind a little walk. Finally got...

The greeting at reception was friendly and expedient and we were soon in our room. The room was clean and functional with all the features you would expect from a chain hotel such as...

Excellent location just across the road from the main shopping centre. Rooms ok but very dated and faded. I booked an "executive" room and have to say I would have been unhappy if I had been here on business as the WI-FI was so slow as to be unusable and there were no plug sockets accessible from the desk without...

This place is quite run down. See my pics. Stained furniture. Poor quality furnishings. Cheap iron that doesn't even take wrinkles out of your work shirt. And disgustingly dirty bath / shower area. I will not be using any of these. If these are the conditions of the rooms I dread to think what kitchen areas etc are like. I...
