“Milton keynes South”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The room was a good size, and was comfortable. The only criticism I would have is that the desk lighting was poor. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was spotless with a good shower! The attached restaurant was very busy for Sunday night and the food was OK. Good value for a budget hotel.

We stayed for one night to break up out journey between attractions.
We liked the look of the building as we arrived, spotting the old windmill.
Check in was a bit slow but was okay. We had to pay on arrival, but this wasn't too much of an issue.
When we were given the room key, it was in a little card pouch which stated you get 30mins of free wi-fi! 30mins....? In this day and age what can you get done in 30minutes? We think it's a bit cheeky to have to pay after 30mins. We are already paying for the room & breakfast, why not allow a decent freebie? When you advertise rooms for £29, yet we paid £92!

The room was nice, although noted there were only 2 coffees & 2 teas. No hot chocolate or biscuits/fruit etc. which is expected of most hotels these days.
The bed was very comfortable, but the bathroom let the room down. The bathroom door didn't shut easily, as if it had dropped and needs planing. The flush button was clearly broken and made a horrible noise when used.

The view from the top floor room however was fantastic!

If we were ever in the area again we would probably return, but as it was a pit stop I doubt it!

This is an "older" style Premier Inn, there is no lift to the upper floor, and you have a physical key for your room. Having said that you do have a lovely environment. We had a top floor room overlooking the lake which was dotted with sailing boats and rowing boats when we arrived. It has an attached Pub which is great value with a range of food/drink (nothing gourmet but lots of choice), has a lot of outside seating if you want to enjoy the views, there is a children's play area, and ample parking. Staff were very friendly and helpful, our room was clean and spacious, the bathroom was clean & functional if a little tired by modern standards. Breakfast was great, plenty of choice, you order the hot food from the waitress and self select cereals, bread/toast, teas/coffees/ fruit juices. The restaurant/bar is the part of the building that was the old Mill so has a lot of character which makes a nice change.

Lovely hotel with lovely friendly staff who couldn't do enough for me.
I had a large room with balcony and lake view.. very relaxing.
Breakfast was great value and they even made my porridge with water as I prefer it to milk. They have soya milk available too which is always a bonus for me.

fabulous building shaped around the windmill, both inside and out! The staircase inside wraps around the mill for diners to take in the lakeside view. Ducks, geese and wildlife galore. family friendly with great play park. really friendly staff, but restaurant in need of a shake up! on edge of busy roads easy to find off M1 but as soundproof as possible. we slept like logs in huge comfy bed. thank you Milton Keynes, we will never prejudge a city again!

after a 4hr journey, tired and hungry we checked in. Check in was okay ..but that was the highlight.
we went to book an early tea at the restaurant and was told that 'sorry I'm not allowed to Take any bookings ' this was at 3pm !!! they offered 6.30 but was told that this wasn't guaranteed.
we unhappily went to reception who were not aware of any issues. they provided alternate restaurant which was lovely but. 20mins away and blew our budget.

The rooms where okay..basic and a little noisy due to being next to an electric box.
Breakfast was poor...can't boil an egg. the resturant was not adequately cleaned from the night before and cold
we complained and got the breakfast refunded..looking back id reckon the whole stay should be.

never again will we return...
