“The usual but nothing wrong with that”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Generally you know what you will get with a HIE. Its basic, efficient and clean. When on business thats pretty much all I need.

The wifi is free, the breakfast is basic buffet but is included. There is a pub/restaurant in the same block and its near a nice lake where you can walk run.

You will need a car as its around 10 mins into MK central although MK itself is not what you would call a holiday spot! Theres also pretty much nothing around except large roads and roundabouts.

For me it was spot on and you get what you pay for.

Have spent many nights here over the years whilst on business nearby. For the price it cannot be faulted. Everything works, and always a good night's sleep. Why can't other hotels look at this model and do likewise?

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Milton Keynes for a week on business. I originally booked it as it was close to where i was working and was close to the M1. The hotel is situated in the middle of a business park with plenty of parking. When entering the hotel, I was greeted in an efficient manner and was booked in quickly. The room was typical of Holiday Inn Express which to those who aren't familiar with it is functional and straightforward. There is free wifi access in the rooms now but don't expect super fast speeds. It is adequate however. The breakfast was served in the main restaurant area and is self service. There are all the basics there with a small selection of hot breakfast items. There a chain restaurant across from the hotel which seems to be popular with the residents and outsiders. It was ok for the most part but there is so many other options in Milton Keynes itself.
Great business hotel that I will definitely use again if back in Milton Keynes.

Stayed on a Saturday, so price was good as hotel is set up more for business guests. Parking was easy and plentiful. Warm, friendly welcome. Extra coffee/milk etc available self service in reception was very convenient. Public areas clean, light and airy. Room large, clean and very comfy. Shower room large and spotlessly clean. Shower powerful and hot. As usual with HIX toiletries were provided. Very comfy pillows and duvets, crisp clean linen. Air con efficient and easily adjusted. Breakfast was standard HIX fare but tasty and plenty of it. Staff were friendly, efficient and very helpful. Free wifi was reasonable speed and just needed a code from reception.
Harvester across car park was excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms at back are quieter.

This Holiday Inn was very comfortable, the staff put my husband and I in the new build so it would be quieter, and it was. On arrival the counter staff were not very updated on attractions going on in the area and they had to find these out for me using google, they found and printed me out directions to where I wanted to go but when I had left the hotel they were directions to the train station and not where I was originally going. Breakfast choice was poor a proper fry includes bacon and there was not any. The beds were comfortable and the rooms had everything you might need but the bathroom was so tiny you could not even swing a cat in it. The rooms and quite large so the designer did not take into consideration how tiny the bathrooms are. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the back of the complex they are quieter.

With regards to the breakfast, we do not offer a "fry up", we are fortunate enough to be able to offer a complimentary "Continental Breakfast" with the added bonus of an additional 3 hot items. Strict guidelines are set out by IHG regarding what can be offered for breakfast to differentiate ourselves from other brands within the group and to ensure we can continue to offer a complimentary breakfast.

Thank you once again and we look forward to hopefully welcoming you back in the future.

Definitely recommend this hotel for simple accommodations at a reasonable price. Management was helpful and accommodating with all o our needs. Breakfast is included and they were advertising free wireless internet starting in June.

Room Tip: The first floor is really one flight of stair up. The ground floor is considered floor zero.

We booked a family room for a one night stay as this was close to Gullivers land .
Staff were very professional and courteous ..large rooms and spotlessly clean.Great little touches like different firmness of pillows add the luxury experience .ample parking available rare these days when staying at hotels and to top it off great breakfast.
highly recommend to all.
