Perfect day

Our day was absolutely perfect. The team accommodated every small request we had. Guests are still complimenting the food six months later. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful. We went with the Lovett Suite which we felt was more classic and attractive. Photographs outside the venue look amazing. The staff went above and beyond to make sure the day was perfect. Jess and Millie made sure everything went smoothly and Sasha, who was new, even helped to sew me into my dress when the zip got stuck. It was great value and we lowered costs even more by providing our own wine and champagne. Can't recommend this venue enough.

I cannot fault the hotel team. Its a shame booings are done via a centralised team but don't let that service deter you from the on-site team. No request was too difficult for them to accommodate. Would 100% recommend holding any event here but for my winter wedding it was perfect. Also , the upsell of their suppliers is totally worthwhile. They work brilliantly together.

Great organisation, great staff and great venue

Our wedding was a super experience. The event was well organised, the staff were experienced, professional and always available. The venue was superb and ideally set up.
Only one minor thing which let it down was the free drink token system was poorly managed and I would do that differently with hind sight but still worth the 5 stars and would recommend anyone to use this venue for their wedding.

Amazing service

That was amazing service. The venue replied always very quickly. Everyone was friendly, professional and just very nice. Amazing value for money. I have to admit the venue and service exceeded our expectations. Mind you, we weren't very fussy and just wanted to focus on having a nice day without obsessing over the details. Having said that, the venue looked amazing, nothing looked like a compromise and the food was great. We had the Platinum package, recalculated for our number of guests and we can't recommend highly enough. Everything was taken care of - DJ, food and room decoration were included in the package, the price was perfect. We felt we actually got way more than we payed for.
Location of the hotel is great as well and it is a very cute little hotel.
Overall, great experience, no hesitation to recommend!

Wedding May 11th 2019 - Outstanding venue !

Our story started when the venue we originally booked in 2017 for our 11th May Wedding cancelled on us 5 weeks before our wedding ! PANIC ! Thanks to the power of Facebook we found this amazing venue and our new path to happiness began. Jessica could not be any more helpful when she found out our story, so supportive and calm, I couldn't believe they had availability on the same day (11th) and the new registrars also had a slot for us. IT WAS FATE ! By the time we met Jessica at Holiday Inn MK East it was around 4 weeks until our big day, nothing was too much trouble and everything went so smoothly from start to finish with the new preparations. I didn't have to worry about anything at all. Our big day arrived and we were then looked after by Shadonna and the team... I had no worries about anything ! the day went like a heavenly dream and we was looked after from start to finish. We can't think of words powerful enough to thank them for such a special day,
In the end we was so thankful the original venue cancelled on us, we had the wedding of our dreams at this venue. Thank you Holiday Inn MK East and all of the team that looked after us, special thanks to Jessica and Shadonna, we will never forget everything you did for us. x

Beautiful venue

Beautiful venue, lots of spaces for inside photos and quiet spots away from the hubbub.
The toast master we had on the day was amazing, very reassuring, knew her stuff and got everything sorted so you didn't have to worry about a thing.

Amazing Wedding Service

We are so happy with our decision to marry here. Our designated wedding co-ordinator throughout the planning process (Katie) was absolutely brilliant and so helpful. She always responded to my emails in a professional and efficient manner. Our toast master on the day of our wedding (Jenna) was also fantastic and made sure everything went smoothly. I had chosen a starter that I knew I wouldn't like but my guests would. On the day when she saw I wasn't eating it she went and got me an alternative. She also catered for one of my guests who didn't like the pudding. She truly couldn't have worked harder or been more helpful. I hope all future brides and grooms are as lucky to have these lovely ladies as we were. It was an amazing day from start to finish and one l will never forget,

Wedding Day 8th September 2018

We had the most perfect wedding at the Holiday Inn MK East. We knew from the minute we walked into the building we wanted this venue. We loved it even more after it had been refurbished. The rooms are absolutely stunning! We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the venue and it ran so smooth from start to finish. Absolutely all members of staff were super helpful and friendly. I can’t stress enough how amazing Shadonna was though!! She was absolutely amazing the day before and after the wedding and even more so the day of the wedding.. she was there whenever we needed anything and nothing seemed too much at all. She was very understanding and knew exactly what was happening and when therefore we did not have to worry about a thing all day. Thank you!! We had the chicken as a main for the wedding breakfast and have had everyone come back and mention how delicious the food was, The bar staff were super friendly and looked like they was having a good time too, we didn’t see them ever without a smile on their faces especially a young woman with blond hair (so sorry I don’t remember your name) she was super friendly and I had several people say how friendly she was and enjoyed a chat with her. Thank you to all staff for everything, we had such a perfect day xx

Perfectly Perfect

From the moment we walked into the venue, we knew that this was for us. We met the lovely Katie on our first day and put down the deposit straight away, then the fun began. Numerous emails back and forth and various visits later, the day before our wedding was here. The staff were fantastic and helped us with all (there was a lot) our decorations. The day could not of gone any more perfect, I still look back on the day and cry as to how happy I was. during the evening I became ill and the receptionists helped me to my room and and made sure I was OK, after a sleep I danced the rest of the night away. We want to thank our wonderful toast master too (unfortunately her name slips our minds) everything during our day went perfectly. once again thank you to all the wonderful staff at the Holiday inn Milton Keynes east, and sorry for the mess. If you want a small or big wedding, they cater for it all. We can't recommend this venue enough

Wedding Day 31st August 2018

Myself and my husband got married here a couple of weeks ago on 31.08.2018, and it was a fabulous day! We had the ceremony here followed by the wedding breakfast and our evening do. We were so very impressed with this venue which we were recommended to and were so pleased we held our special day here.

Laura did a great job helping us plan our big day and Shadonna on our Wedding day was amazing.

We had so many lovely comments regarding how lovely the venue was, how friendly the staff were and how excellent the food was.

Thank you so much for giving us the perfect day!
