“Convenient Location”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Easy to find and pretty much as expected for a chain hotel. Friendly staff at check-in. Good size room with all the usual amenities, including 2 armchairs plus desk chair, which is great for two to relax. Breakfast was cheaper if booked the night before and the selection was good (and yes, the plates were hot - a small but important detail). Access from the carpark is via a big staircase, which is unfortunate if you are unable to lift your heavy suitcase. However, we used the disabled access from the side of the building, which solved this for us. (The disabled access does take you across the patio area and if hotel residents have moved the tables/chairs about, as they had when we arrived, access is difficult if you are unable to push them out of the way. However, we mentioned this on arrival at reception and by the time we got to our room could see from our window that the hotel staff had addressed this issue). Inhouse pool, sauna, gym which looked OK, but was busy with non resident members.

Stayed here for 3 nights in September. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the reception area and bar were very impressive. Unfortunately the rooms are poorly cleaned, very dusty and the bathrooms badly maintained. We changed rooms are the first night because the room was so dusty I felt I couldn't breathe! The second room was slightly better but the bathroom was disgusting. Soap caked onto soap dish in shower, the extractor fan barely worked as it was choked in dirt and the ceiling and bath shower sealer was black with mould. A real shame, sort out your cleaning! Your front of house staff were wonderful.

Room Tip: Do not choose a triple room unless absolutely necessary, the double bed was tiny and uncomfortable.

This was our second stay at this hotel and look forward to staying again. The room was large with a king size bed and very comfortable. Even being near the busy road was not a problem as the rooms are well insulated.The breakfast was first class - great choice and well cooked plus the plates were hot!

We stayed for one night in a good sized room but it appeared that general room maintenance has been neglected. Why can't hotel maintenance staff apply caulking correctly around baths, showers and wash basins? It appeared that the caulk had been applied with a trowel. Has this hotel changed hands because our experience 2 years earlier was fine? Based on the room we were given I could not recommend this hotel.

Good value hotel with friendly staff good breakfast and slightly old fashioned fittings. Good Gym Facilities and a reasonable pool provide enough for a good work out.
One draw back, or advantage for some, is the poor Mobile Phone coverage throughout the hotel.

This is one of many hotels who for some unknown reason have the Smoking Area right outside the front entrance of the Hotel which means that you have to pass through the haze of smoke in order to enter or leave the hotel, and as the entrance to this hotel is a narrow corridor it is made even more annoying. Why do hotels do this - Smoking is anti-social, harmful to your health and just downright undesirable for the majority - so stop pandering to the smelly minority, stick them out of sight and out of the front entrance of the hotel.

I stayed here for one night with my husband with a group of friends for an event at Silverstone Circuit (last weekend of September).

The hotel is easy to find and there was plenty of space in the car park which is right next to a fuel forecourt.

On entry to reception (which is up a flight of stairs) the decor was more 'upmarket' compared to other chain hotels we have stayed at before. Our check-in process was swift and easy enough and the desk staff were welcoming.

Our room and bathroom were a good size and we have no complaints about the double bed or pillows. Cleanliness was excellent except there was one stain on our bed cover which we removed and did not use.

Even though the traffic passing the hotel is relatively heavy we could not hear this from our hotel room - we were in a room which was located furthest away from the road.

Our toilet took a while to fill back up after a flush during the night but we closed the door to minimise noise and this was fine - our friends mentioned that their bathroom fans were rather noisy but we did not have this problem. The shower pressure is weak but temperature was more than hot enough.

We made good use of the spa and pool as well as the bar and in-house restaurant. The spa is well worth a visit after a long ride up on a motorbike!

A round of 3-4 mixer drinks cost between £15-20 - not extortionate but not cheap. The meal wasn't mind-blowing but still good value for myself and husband. A couple of friends didn't feel their mains were big enough in size.

Breakfast was excellent. The usual hot options and some cold options - again, god value for money and tasty. Check out was swift again and we were on our way.

Overall I have had one of the best times in a chain hotel of similar costs (other experiences in Premier Inn and Travelodges) and found this Best Western really good value for money. Would most definitely return if visiting the area again and highly recommend.

Room Tip: Perhaps ask for a room located away from the road if worried about traffic noise and noise from gues...

We were very pleased with our triple room, which overlooked the rear of the hotel, and so was very quiet. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The free wifi worked really well.

It takes only 15 - 20 minutes to walk into Buckingham from the hotel. If you turn left on leaving the hotel, cross the dual carriageway at the lights, and walk straight on down the footpath, you will soon be in the town centre. There's one junction where you have to turn right but it's signposted so you can't miss it. If you don't want to go into town but need a little shopping, there's a Tesco within about half a mile.

Although we looked quite hard, we didn't see any especially inspiring pub or restaurant in Buckingham, and were glad we had booked a window table in the hotel restaurant. We had various meat and vegetarian dishes for dinner, including a very tasty cheese and vegetable kebab, and steak. All the food was good quality, and not expensive. Portion sizes are modest, but adequate.

The pool is a reasonable size, but can't accommodate many people at a time, so early morning when all the health club members arrive means it isn't too easy to swim.

Our only disappointment was breakfast, which is fine if you like meat, but not very good for vegetarians. There's a good choice of cereals, but only tinned fruit, and no cheeses.

We were staying at this hotel as it is close to Silverstone. It took us about 20 minutes to get to Silverstone by car from the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the rear are really nice and quiet.
