“Perfect for a Wedding Reception”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

My friend and colleague had her Wedding Breakfast and then an evening party at this charming hotel last week. It really was a lovely looking property and offered a warm welcome and very good service. The park and rural aspect surrounding the hotel was particularly beautiful on the sunny night in May that we were there. A really nice surprise as I thought it was going to be just another 'chain hotel'.
My only small criticism was that the actual reception suite was a little bit cramped and I was unable to be seated. but we soon moved to the lovely airy lobby lounge where it was much quieter anyway.

Room Tip: I did not stay at the hotel.

Our party of seven spent one night here in May. The ambience is great and our rooms were comfortable. At breakfast the hot buffet was great but one of our party was not happy with the porridge which he said was more akin to a bowl of gruel. The price of drinks is high with the cheapest wine at £25 a bottle but you expect that from a venue that specialises in weddings in a lovely setting. The price of drinks led us to eat at the Chef & Brewer just down the road. The hotel reception staff were very welcoming and helpful but the barman seemed to be on another planet and was hard to track down so a waitress from the dining room had to serve our nightcaps, perhaps a slight management control issue.

We were taken out to afternoon tea by some friends and I have to say I think this was the best I have ever had. It was not overly busy but we're treated almost like royalty by our waiter George from the moment we arrived. After choosing our preferred tea the sandwiches came out, so many followed by cakes. biscuits and of course scones with jam and cream. The food was to die for which just went on and on. As there was so much we couldn't eat everything and was offered a "Doggie Bag" for the left overs. We all had a wonderful afternoon and would highly recommend this treat!!

Stayed for my nephew's wedding here. A lovely place for a wedding and we were lucky to have the sunshine for a couple of hours so that the photos could be taken in the lovely grounds.
For a sit down wedding meal, it was better than the usual we have come to expect.
The staff were all very helpful and polite.
The drinks were, as expected, rather pricey.
A comfortable hotel.

We stayed here for one night whilst visiting Bletchley park. The hotel is set in lovely surrounding next to a lovely old church on the outskirts of Milton Keynes. The rooms were lovely and clean we went for a superior double after reading previous reviews on size of some standard rooms. The breakfast was excellent, lots of choice. It was lovely to hear the peal of church bells on a lovely Sunday morning quintessentially English!

Room Tip: Superior rooms in the main hotel were lovely and bright.

Our daughter was married here yesterday (11th May 2013), and we would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone looking for a wedding or party venue. The organisation of the day was timed to perfection, with the hotel following our day plan exactly, offering helpful advice, and resolving the small issues that occur.

The staff were excellent at the execution of their duties, as well as being personable and approachable.

We did wonder after the tasting night, whether the hotel would be able to deliver such good quality food for a large gathering, but we shouldn't have worried. The food was of an exceptional quality.

All in all, if you live in or around Milton Keynes and are arranging a wedding or party you would have to go a long way to beat this venue.

One small point, the bars don't offer any real ale on draught, they do need to correct this.

Stayed here on the spare of the moment for an evening just to get away. Our stay was very comfortable and the staff were friendly and professional.

We opted for room service breakfast which arrived promptly and was hot, the coffee lacked a bit to be desired but that's just my taste. Comfy bed, clean bathroom and nice staff made for a good night sleep. Passion for service all round!

Would we stay again...yes!
