“Exceptional value for money”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

The hotel is not far from the centre of Newport Pagnell which is a pleasant town and close to the Aston Martin Works. Check in was smooth and I was given a room on the ground floor.

The room was compact with double bed and was nicely decorated. There was a wall mounted TV with freeview channels, tea/coffee facilities, a good amount of space for clothes; also an iron and ironing board. The bathroom was open plan with a state of the art shower system with massage jets, very invigorating!

The rooms maybe smaller than average but for the money paid it represents exceptional value for money for the facilities offered. One down side was the WIFI wasn't working, I didn't follow this up as I had brought my internet dongle with me. I enjoyed my stay and I would quite happily stay again.

For £19 a night I could not fault this hotel.. The room had a double bed, which was fine for a single person, but for two I would say it would be cosy! The bathroom had a great Bath and shower and the bed was comfy. It was also really handy having a proper iron and ironing board in the room rather than having to ring reception to ask for one. I would happily book here again it really did tick all the boxes I challenge you to find a hotel with good food and bar service.at this price and a plus there are some great old pubs and the best curry places in Mk within 5 minuets walk

Room Tip: Ask for room 210 it's a suite.

We held a party at Harben House and were very pleased with all aspects of the service, the food was excellent and plentiful. Guests were also able to book rooms at a very reasonable rate along with an excellent breakfast. Staff exceeded expectations. My room was large, extremely well equipped and faultlessly clean and comfortable. I would not hesitate to visit again.

Rooms were fine, large enough and functional and clean.

Staff were all really friendly and would do anything to help us on our stay.

The quality of food wasn't anything to write home about but the quanity made up for this.

Gym was bigger and better equiped than I expected, which was great given the food portions.

Will return again for future events, but wouldn't want to move in.

Room Tip: Suggest asking for one of the recently refurbished rooms.

For £19 a night I could not fault this hotel. Having battled through the stormy weather I arrived to a friendly welcome. The room had a double bed, which was fine for a single person, but for two I would say it would be cosy! The bathroom had a great Bath and shower and the bed was comfy. It was also really handy having a proper iron and ironing board in the room rather than having to ring reception to ask for one. I would happily book here again it really did tick all the boxes!

Stayed here for 2 nights and after reading some of the reviews wondered what I was in store for. What I got was a very nice surprise , the staff during my stay were fantastic and could not do enough for us , they were all friendly and attentive , especially Rose. The room I had was clean and cosy and the shower was lovely and powerful . The food I chose was tasty and hot , and room service was prompt and served by friendly staff. Thank you for making my stay very pleasant

The room was terrible, really small and pokey and the pillows were really uncomfortable.

Service in the bar while friendly was slow, one person behind the bar is clearly not enough. I had nachos and paid extra for chilli which came in a tiny pot on the side? Random and pointless!

Breakfast the next day was also poor, stale cereal and no fresh banana, again only one server and so failed to receive any hot drink.

I wouldn't rush back!

I have taken on board your comments with regards to the bar service, bedroom experience and quality of the breakfast. I will be speaking to the relevant managers most notably the food and beverage Manager and the Head Housekeeper to ensure your experiences are not repeated.

We are constantly looking at ways to drive customer service forward at De Vere Harben and we take all feedback very seriously and I appreciate your comments as it highlights to us where improvements need to be made.

I hope any future visits will reconfirm your faith in us
