“This hotel met my single requirement when booking, but little else after that.”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

I required a hotel for a two day stay (September, 2012) in Milton Keynes, close to Bletchley. As I had no transportation, I needed to be close as possible, and this was the single requirement when booked the hotel. I booked directly via the Campanile website to get the best rate on this occasion.

On arrival I discovered that the property was directly on the A5 (Watling Street) heading towards Dunstable. So I asked for a room on the rear, that appeared to overlook some sports fields. The front office staff completed the checking but without pride or a warm welcome.

There is a very large night club directly opposite the hotel, which I think was the reason for the alarm going off at 0300 in the morning, both nights during my stay. Many of the guests staying at the hotel during the weekend where club visitors as well. The food was similar to a motorway service station (just fuel), I was expecting better from a well-known European wide hotel brand with French roots.

The reception area and accommodation is accessed via separate entrances, but I was not told what to do in case of an emergency, or it there was night security staff.

This hotel met the single requirement I had when booking, but little else.

Room Tip: Rooms on the rear of the hotel are quieter, as the hotel is on the A5 with very large night club dir...

I booked this through Hotels.com for £39 including continental breakfast. The room appeared to be the cheapest I could find near Milton Keynes on that night.

The reception staff were friendly on check-in and check-out.

The room itself was basic but tidy and clean. There was ample tea and coffee, plus some biscuits. The bathroom was also clean, however there was only one towel.

The hotel is opposite a nightclub, although this was closed on the Wednesday when I stayed. The road outside was noisy in the morning and the window did little to prevent the noise.

The free wi-fi was unusable. This was one of the main reasons for choosing this hotel, so I could do some work. However, the connection was very slow and took too long for anything to load. In the end, I used the 3G connection on my phone (and that wasn't cheap).

Breakfast was disappointing. There were no cups, glasses, plates or staff. Everyone looked confused. When a member of staff did appear, he looked stressed. Eventually, some plates and cups were provided. The selection was mainly toast, croissants, cereal and juice. That's it. No other pastries to choose from. There was also a small cooked breakfast option for £2.75, however I chose to visit Ikea (about 5 minutes drive) for their 99p breakfast.

Overall, good for one night but I wouldn't stay longer.

Room Tip: Room at the back of the hotel

We paid £55, non refundable, for one nights bed & breakfast. We were given a twin room which was clean but basic, no wardrobe just hanging space. The beds moved at the slightest touch, quite difficult, but amusing, when you tried to sit on them. There are no complimentary bath gels & shampoo, just a liquid soap container on the wall.
The continental breakfast was disappointing with very little choice. There was only plain yoghurt in a glass, no individual pots of yoghurt, one choice of cold meat, which was pre-packed supermarket reformed ham, small cheese portions in packs that were impossible to open. Considering this is a French hotel chain, you would think that they'd be able to put on a decent continental breakfast.We paid an extra £2.75 each for a full English which was cooked to order & very nice.
The staff did their jobs, but without much 'customer service'. They weren't rude, but certainly didn't 'go that extra mile'!. When I asked reception if they supplied toiletries, as we'd run out of toothpaste, I was told to go to Tesco.
This hotel is fine if you just need to spend one night here, as it is clean & has a bar with a restaurant. If you can get it at a good price, then it's worth a visit.

Stayed there and was amazed that the staff are so miserable. The receptionist was never happy and even at one point quite rude to me. The food service was slow I would have been able to drive into the city have a meal and drive back again before i got my starter! The hotel is great shame about the service. Although i must be fair the breakfast staff are a great bunch. And then alarms going off at 4 in the morning ?

My husband and I stayed here for one night. The room was basic but had a tv and hairdryer. The room overlooked some playing fields.

The price was only £35 for the two of us with a continental breakfast which was good.

We were on the second floor and something that let the hotel down was the room which was BOILING hot all evening and night even with the window open!!!

Stayed here as a couple for a one night stop over. Romm was clean, bed was ok and for the most part the hotel was quiet (request a room on the 2nd floor).Staff were friendly and efficient. Continental breakfast was underwhelming, not much choice. We should have gone for the cooked breakfast. I would recommend for a one or two night stop, as it's pretty basic but functional

Room Tip: Request a room on an upper floor, and far away from the restaurant.

I stayed at this hotel as I got a deal of £29.00 per room.
The staff were freindly and helpful.
Food was a little below the normal standadrd I am used to but again it was cheap.
Most of the guests when we stayed were not English and the Hotel seemed to cope with this very well.
There is a large Gay/Lesbian Bar opposite the front car park so I guess if you are into that sort of thing its perfectly placed. When I saw this I didnt know what to expect but apart from the massive rainbow signs you wouldnt have known it was there.
The only downside was that a guest had decided to spark up a 'joint' in the room up the hall from us, although the staff quickly responded the place stank of it for the rest of the stay.

All in all a good cheap hotel. £29.00 with a free continental style breakfast.

Room Tip: rooms at the back of the hotel will be further away from the Nightclub accross the road
