Myself and my husband chose the Long Inn's hotel as a stay over for our friends wedding locally. On arrival it had a nice small check-in and was swift service. Our Premier Double Room was located on the 3rd floor after 2 sets of narrow staircases. The room was clean and quaint but the carpets were tatty and extremely worn in certain areas. The room was nicely decorated. What let this hotel down was the very hard/thin matress and extremely creeky bed that seemed to be held together what boards of cheap wood. Also the toilet and bath area has a 'sani-flow' system, which meant that anytime you flush or drain the water the noise was soooooo loud and you would easily wake up your neighbours in the next room. We ended up being paranoid to flush the toilet or drain the bath until we knew it was a suitable time in the morning!
This hotel is lovely downstairs and there is good option for the breakfast included in the price. Can't complain at all over the service or restaurant area.

After trawling the internet for what seemed and eternity, i stumbled upon Longs Inn we were travelling to Woburn for a visit to the safari park and needed somewhere too stay for one night. What a find! we were warmly greeted by friendly staff, shown to our family room which was amply sized for me, my husband and 12 yr old daughter. The room was nicely dressed with a mixture of eclectic furniture, comfortable four poster bed, lovely laundered bed linen, tea/coffee making facilities and ensuite. The breakfast was the best we have had for sometime and considering we had stayed at a 4* international hotel in London the night before there was no comparison Longs Inn was far superior. This hotel is minutes away from the park and offer larger accommodation as well so we are planning to return soon with friends asap.

Room Tip: We had a family room at the front of the Inn facing the road but it was very quiet.

Lovely quaint coaching inn. You need to watch your head in the bedrooms (I am 6' tall) Lovely friendly welcome, inviting bar area where you can relax, restaurant serves excellent breakfasts & evening meals. We stayed for 2 nights in June as a base to visite Woburn Abbey & Safari park, we where not dissapointed with the the hotel. Just remember some rooms have baths some have showers so whatever is your personal preference

We were looking 4 a last minute hotel in Woburn & this place is a gem. Really good size comfortable double room with ensuite. Very clean with a lovely big shower. Just a shame we were only there 4 1 night.

The staff were very friendly. Arrived late in the evening, restaurant was shut, the bar attendant offered to ring a take way and collect it for us, we kindly took her up on this offer! Over all we had a pleasant 2 day stay. We would stay here again!

We stayed for two nights and were very comfortable. There was a bit of noise from other rooms and the road, but otherwise it was great. Comfy beds and a nice breakfast. The menu looked good but limited vegetarian options so we ate elsewhere.

Thrown out of our house by daughter having a birthday barbecue, we decided to stay in nearby Woburn. A search on the Internet showed that our first thought of staying at The Inn at Woburn would cost us £160 so that was a no go!

Longs Inn which used to be The Magpies (and probably The Magpie Georgian coaching inn - one of 16 coaching inns that this tittle town boasted in the 18/19 century before the railway took over) was a much cheaper but better option.

It's a small, genuine Georgian inn, now a pub/restaurant/ hotel in the main street. Our double room on second floor was quaint and creaky, but with en suite and flat screen telly. Coffee/tea and ironing board/iron and a view out over the Woburn roof tops and rather scary church top gargoyles.

The couple running it are slowly working through renovating the rooms and showed me pictures of a first floor room which looked very plush.

Breakfast was outstanding, one of the best Full English I've had -- good bacon and proper sausages a nod black pudding.

Service is friendly and homely ( in a nice way). If it wasn't just down the road, it would be a great weekend break and for anyone thinking of visiting Woburn which has much to offer I'd thoroughly recommend it.
