“Very Impressed!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

We stay in MK quite a lot - I work for the Open University and usually take the family and make a weekend of it when called to HQ. As a result we have stayed in many hotels in the area but we are all agreed that this is the best. The hotel has a lovely atmosphere and the atrium around the main bar and glass sided elevators make it feel quite special. Yes, the rooms are showing their age, but spotlessly clean with controllable heating, space and a BIG flatscreen telly. Swimming pool is a good size (no jacuzzi sadly - perhaps would have given 5 stars if there was) and gym very good. The staff are unfailingly smiley and helpful. We had a lovely stay here and will definitely return.

One thing I'd like to make a point about - the HI 'first night free if you find it cheaper' thing. We found it cheaper on Expedia, but to get this you have to find it cheaper, then book it on the HI site at the higher price, then claim your free night. Would you trust them to give you your free night? If so, you are braver than me! I booked it on Expedia :)

Room Tip: A balcony overlooking the bar is quite special

4th stay at this hotel,
Visits seem to be getting worst! Last visit very dirty towels and heart attack Meds left in bedside table,
This time room stunk and hit me as I walked straight in.
Shower curtain dirty
Don't think my room had been used in a long time but nicer layer out than previous rooms.
Staff amazingly will help rectify anything and they give freebies when requested such as tooth paste etc
Eat out! Don't eat their food! And take plenty money if wanting to buy drinks @ bar

Thank you for your review of your stay in January at the Holiday Inn Milton Keynes.

I am disappointed to read that you were not happy with the level of cleanliness in your room and that there was medication left on the bed side. I would like to fully investigate this matter, please do contact me directly with further details of your stay at matthew.beard@ihg.com.

I am glad you think our staff are amazing, that is lovely to read!

Please do contact me so I can follow up your other comments and we can get you back to stay again in the near future.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2011

Stayed at here for a weekend in December for the Redbull Racing's homerun. Was only a ten minute walk from Milton Keynes central train station. The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of MK and is literally just across the road from the big shopping centre so would be a perfect base for shopping trips. The room was nice and roomy and very quiet at night even though there were xmas parties going on in the hotel bar until 1am.....i never heard a thing and slept really well (the only noise i heard was other guests slamming their doors but that is not the hotels fault). We had breakfast at the hotel both mornings of our stay (get a voucher from reception before you go to the restaurant as it makes it cheaper). It was all you could eat and was lovely, there was a massive variety to choose from too.
This is a cracking place to stay in Milton Keynes and i would reccomend it to anyone.

Thank you for your review regarding your stay at the Holiday Inn Milton Keynes.

I am glad you had a great stay and enjoyed the Red Bull Home Run event, did you manage to see Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber and the whole Team for the event at the hotel?

It is such a pleasure to read such great comments and thank you again for sharing these with the Trip Advisor community.

Red Bull may be doing a similar event in 2012 so please come and see us again, if not before then.
