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.
