“Fantastic Family Fun”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

We stayed here for one night in the family room on the safari package (fabulous value for money). The Staff were very friendly, the rooms lovely and spacious and clean and the food was great. With the Safari park and Abbey only just up the road, it was a wonderful way to end the kids first week back at school, and although we didn't get time to see the Abbey as the Safari park was so fantastic, we will definitely be looking to do this again and hopefully for longer next time.

Stayed at The Inn at Woburn for one night whilst visiting Bletchley park. Plenty of free parking, easy to find. Large, airy, stylish room, spotlessly clean. Welcoming public lounge area. Friendly, helpful staff. Great food and service. Will definitely stay here again.

I statyed at the Woburn for a week on business and have to admit its one of the nicest hotels i'vbe stayed in. Its tastefully decorated and generally quiet. If you need complete quiet, ask for a room that doesn't over look the car park as other guests can be very noisy.

Oliviers Restaurant is lovely. The food is excellent, the wine list superb and the staff attentive.

There is no air conditioning but the staff are happy to provide you with a fan, which sadly, given the heat from this summer just circulated hot air. Of course, this is not something that staff can do anything about.

The only negative I had was on departure. When I raised an error in my bill, the reception staff were somewhat sullen and looked annoyed at having to deal with it. That is something that ius easily rectified of course.

Would I stay again? Absolutely, i'm booked in again next week.

Room Tip: If you need quiet, ask for a room that doesn't over look the car park

We stayed here on the safari package. No complaints at all - highly recommend the Chinese suite to stay in and the food in the bar was superb. My children loved the weekend as did us parents. Thank you we will be returning. The safari was amazing and had a lovely day at the Abbey and got to go round the maze so very special.

I don't normally bother writing reviews but this hotel rightly deserves a glowing one. We had a wonderful stay here. Booked as part of safari package which included entry to the safari park which is right on it it's doorstep our stay included two rooms. One of the nicest designed and decorated room I have stayed in. Our kids were welcomed and the staff were friendly to them. The meal in Olivers restaurant was fantastic. Each member of staff in both the hotel and restaurant were happy and provided excellent service and a credit to the hotel. We are definitely coming back soon!

Surprise birthday afternoon tea. Couldn't fault it, food was excellent, fantastic sandwiches and cakes. Staff friendly and I had a great time. Lovely location and they had no problems bringing our own birthday cake too.

Thank you for posting your review about our afternoon tea on this site.

We consider Woburn as ' the home of Afternoon Tea' as the tradition is said to have been started by Duchess Anna Maria, wife of the 7th Duke of Bedford at Woburn Abbey during the 1840s. She felt that it was a long time between luncheon and dinner and that taking tea and delicate sandwiches, cakes and biscuits at 5 o’clock helped bridge the gap.

I am pleased that you choose the Inn for this special occasion and that the qulaity of food and service met all your expectations.

Once again thank you.

Kind regards

Easy to find and park your car

Friendly welcome in reception that was very efficient

Room very good. Decent size and modern décor and feel. Very clean and nicely serviced every day

Does exactly what is claims to on their website

Had a drink in the bar which is nicely done but not the biggest. Didn't eat there

Woburn nice village to stay in. A few places to eat and have a drink

Would go again
