Stayed here the night before a business meeting in Milton Keynes. Great hotel, well equipped, with good restaurant and bar facilities, lovely rooms and a very pleasant atmosphere in general.

Check in was smooth, courteous and informative. I asked for a smoking room at check in and was given one on the second floor of the hotel. The room was large, clean (immaculately so - refreshing change for a smoking room) and well equipped with a good sized TV, separate toilet from the bathroom (not so important for solo travellers, but a nice touch), large work area and very comfortable queen sized bed.

The hotel also features a very nice health suite, with a lovely pool. The key can be obtained from reception before using. The bar area is comfortable, with plenty of seating. The drinks aren't cheap, but are in keeping with general hotel prices. We took an evening meal in the hotel restaurant. The choice of food is good and is well presented and well cooked - again, at reasonable prices. It provided exactly what was needed in a comfortable and pleasant environment. Service was quiet and efficient and of a very professional / good standard.

The room provided a very comfortable nights sleep at a very reasonable price. The hotel offered very professional, quiet and efficient service and the place was immaculate throughout with a host of good facilities. Basically, I couldn't have asked any more of the place - it lived up to the best of expectations for the type of hotel it is.

My title relates to subjective location. Location will always be subjective in a hotel review and trying to rate it by stars is almost impossible. It is in Milton Keynes, slightly off the beaten track, but is in a quiet, easilly accessible location. Most of the major attractions of the city are a cab ride away, but they're not far so don't expect to pay much.

Car parking is available at the hotel and is free of charge.

I stayed at this hotel on a business trip tp Milton Keynes in February. Having previously stayed in other hotels in the area, I was extremely surprised by the high level of service and facilities this hotel has to offer. The rooms were spacious, the swimming pool was great and the food quality was of a very high standard. The only small point I had was that I found the WIFI charges to be very expensive compared with other hotels.
I am looking forward to returning to this hotel in March and would recommend it to all business travellers visiting Milton Keynes.

Stayed here twice with work. Approx 79 quid or 89 quid with breakfast. Clean & comfortable with good space in rooms. Very nice staff. Pool & gym on site [not checked out yet!]. But it is the restaurant which is the biggest surprise - it is really very good for a chain hotel. Well priced dishes which are excellent and at least 'bistro' standard in presentation and taste. Well done to the chef ! So what if it's a 3 quid cab ride into town, at least it's better than the snooty girls on reception at the Ramada Encore. Miss that; stay here.

I have not stayed in a Novotel before but have eaten & drank a number of times at the Novotel in Cardiff, so was looking forward to the stay. The hotel looks fairly impressive from the outside but I was very dissapointed with the room. Very sterile plastic modular bathroom, carpet had been shown the hoover from a distance, small bar very busy took ages to get served. Breakfast was of poor quality and tasteless, looked as if some of the food had been sat out under the lamps for a while. Unfortunately I did get to use the pool facilities so cannot comment, although it did look welcoming.
Overall very disappointed but comfortable enough for a couple of nights.

Was moved here as the Hotel I had originally been booked in to was full. Initially i was quite wary despite the brand as the hotel is located just outside of the city centre. But the hotel was clean with easy parking. The internet was good and as were the gym facilities.

Had a good meal and was well attended too by staff. Given that I had arrived as a refugee from a large, somewhat dis-organised hotel in the city centre I was pleased to find the place calm and well run with my room ready and waiting.
