“Excellent value”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Stayed for one night on a Saturday in January. Receptionist on arrival was very friendly and helpful - everything done with a smile. The room was exactly as expected - basic, but clean and comfortable. As commented elsewhere, the location is very nice, being by the lake. Unfortunately we didn't get a room facing the lake, so a tip would be to request one at check-in if you are particularly keen to have that. The night receptionist was again very friendly, as were the two receptionists on our check-out. Never have I stayed at a hotel where the staff were so consistently good. Breakfast was reasonable, but with plenty of choice it was good value for money. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a lake view.

We travel a lot, and typically I would look for something with more character / more upmarket. But let me stop right there and say that the Premier Inns we stayed in during our trip over to the UK in January offered exceptional value. I understand their focus on the bed which gave us 3 nights excellent sleep, but the room itself was spacious. OK I understand there is no minibar (but when provided I rarely use them anyway) and you have to get your bags to the room- but at £19 for a double room- wow, and we had a view looking over the lake! I wouldn't have blinked an eyelid at £50, and frankly have many times paid >£100 for a less good room. And the staff were a joy. Good for you Premier Inn

Myself and my wife stayed the one night for her employers xmas do. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The quality of our room was very good. Clean, very good condition with a comfortable bed. Tea and coffee is available.
We had a room over-looking the lake which was a bonus.
Parking has to be paid for, but at £4-00 for 24 hours this was reasonable.
Our party was located next to the lake but i will definately stay here again if we have a night out in Milton Keynes.
Overall, great value for the quality and first class staff.

Good Premier inn and very nice location, overlooking the lake. Rooms are what you come to expect from this chain and were clean and well appointed and we had a good nights sleep. Only criticism is that the parking is not free and had to pay for the two nights. We did not use the restaurant.
Recommended for short stay
