This place is under new management and the owners have worked crazy hard to make this a terrific place to stay. They are working through the building doing renovations...how they've managed to achieve floors which don't squeak in such an old building is beyond me. The staff are wonderfully friendly and the breakfasts absolutely outstanding, including home baked bread in the best bacon sandwich I've had for years. Plenty of space in the family room, which we took for three nights, so had plenty of opportunity to notice the smaller touches, such as if you don't eat the selection of biscuits one evening, they're replaced with a different selection the morning after to see if they're more to your taste. It sounds like a tiny thing, but the whole establishment is run with attention to detail like that and we really appreciated it. The family room hasn't been renovated yet and my partner's initial reaction was "hope you didn't pay much for this"...by the next evening he had totally changed his view. Wifi was another unexpected bonus. This is a lovely place to stay and we would recommend it without hesitation. The restaurant is excellent at all times, not just for breakfast...reviewed elsewhere.
The only thing we'd change was the traffic noise, which is constant all day all night with lorries cutting through to avoid the M1, but this affects every hotel in Woburn as they're all on the main road. If you're a very light sleeper we'd recommend that you pick a different village,but if you pick Woburn...stay at Long's Inn!
