Fabulous 8.6 From 94 reviews

Good 6.0
Had a room that must have been above a boiler or something as it went off all night every couple of minutes had no sleep at all so was very tired and had a long drive the following morning. The hotel itself was nice staff friendly but long wait to order food or drinks

Cranfield Management dev centre stay
Its somewhat in a small village, part of Cranfield Business School, but facilities are very good. Staff is friendly. Restaurant and Bar is okay. Parking is free, but limited, Bedford and MiltonKeynes are within driving distance (7-8 Miles) and I got it good price for aTuesday night stay.

Great overnight stay
All staff were very friendly and helpful. Very pleasant stay, however 2 blood stains on duvet cover noticed. Very good variety at breakfast, and really entertaining to have sheep bleating outside the room in the morning

Fair 4.0
Very noisy
Drunken people running around the corridors shouting and setting off the fire alarm!
Joyjit, gb1 night business trip
Good 6.0
A very standard stay with limited facilities because of location. Main fault was the room towels were not changed for clean ones and because of this lack of hygiene I will not stay again.
