“Beautiful setting, lovely hotel and just as described”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Stayed for 1 night after booking it through last minute.com where it was advertised as a mystery hotel. It was described as a former manor house in a country setting only a few minutes drive from the centre of Milton Keynes. That was exactly what it was.

We stayed in a small double room. Again it was advertised as a small double room and it certainly was. There wasn't much room and it was obviously a single room with a double bed in it. Apart from that the bed was comfortable and the room contained everything that we wanted.

We didn't eat in the hotel so I can't comment about the food. There was a pub within walking distance and a church next door. I would stay here again but would want a larger room next time.

Stayed here recently for a wedding - 3 nights (came from the USA). Loved the place and the staff were exceptionally nice. Room was very clean and tidied everyday promptly. They were even nice about keeping the bar open late and I loved the fact that I could just charge drinks or food to my room.

I lived in the UK for about 5 years and am very familiar with accommodations. I would say this is one of the better places I've stayed including some of the 'nicer' hotels in London.

Highly recommended! I would definitely stay here again. Nice job Mercure Parkside!!

Room Tip: Stay in the main part - not the carriage house which is separated.

Me & My husband enjoyed a lovely meal here Friday 14th September.

The meal was absolutely georgous and the staff very friendly & polite and without bugging you like some other restaurants around do. The hotel itself is clean and nicely furnished. Would definitely recommend this to any couple or family looking for a lovely meal in lovely surroundings. We'll definitely return!

My wife and I enjoyed a very nice 'Afternoon Tea' at the hotel on Wednesday 5 September 2012 to celebrate our 48th Wedding Anniversary. It was a beautiful day and we were offered the opportunity to share tea together in the hotel garden. The food was lovely and the service from 'George' the waiter was excellent. Thank you very much.

Stayed at this hotel for one night on 17 September. On arrival, the first thing that struck us was just how shabby the outside was, with peeling paint everywhere.

The downstairs communal areas inside were a little better but the staircase had stained, worn carpets, stained armchairs and very worn paint on the banister. The rooms are in dire need of refurbishment.

We paid extra to upgrade to a privilege room. However, the room itself was poorly decorated, with paint peeling off in the bathroom. There were marks on the walls in the bedroom where screws had obviously been removed and only patched over with filler. The four poster bed was a great disappointment, comprising literally four posts of wood (no canopy) which had been screwed together on numerous occasions and shows a large amount of wear and tear. The light fitting had dead flies and spiders in it - definitely not something one would expect of a 4 star hotel. The television was in a cupboard, which also housed the minibar (which was empty) and tea/coffee making facilities. This cupboard was located so badly that the television could not be watched when lying in bed since the doors did not fold back sufficiently to allow viewing and the shelf on which the TV stood did not pull out far enough. The only place we could watch TV from was the sofa. The cupboard which housed the TV was very old and creaky and had seen better days.

Breakfast was OK with quite a good choice, but the coffee is extremely weak and tasteless.

On the whole, I would not recommend this hotel as it stands at present.

My daughter held her wedding reception at the Mercure Hotel on 3rd August 2012.
As a proud father all I can say about the hotel , food and staff is they were all first class.
Nothing was too much effort or trouble for them. They all served our guests with a smile and
exceptional efficiency. Very many of our 101 guest made the comment it was the best wedding they had attended.
My special thanks goes to Nicola and Barry for all there help making the day so wonderful.
