Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Me and my partner have been to Woburn before, but never had the opportunity to stay the night.

We travelled from London to Woburn on Friday afternoon and checked in to this lovely hotel at about 3pm. My partner was going to a concert at the MK National Bowl that evening and when we were looking for somewhere to stay the night, I discovered that this hotel was only 8.3 miles from the Bowl (About £15 in a cab...which suited us perfectly)!

I'd chosen a cottage for our overnight stay because I wanted something special and we weren't disappointed. When you check the rooms available online, you'll see that although all of the hotels rooms are beautifully decorated, the cottages offer that little extra something.

We stayed in Slipperfield, a gorgeous one down-two up (lounge/bedroom/bathroom), decorated in neutral colours with a comfy sofa and a flat screen TV. It was perfect for my relaxing evening whilst my other half went went off to the gig.

I ordered room service from the menu provided in the room, which was reasonably priced for an a la carte (£18.75 for a fillet steak) but if you're thinking of a tipple in your room, make sure to take a bottle with you. Be warned, the closest off licence/supermarket is in the next village which is a two-mile walk in any direction. I ended up ordering my wine from the hotel when I ordered from the restaurant...£21 bottle of Shiraz! Tasty, of course, but £15 more than if I'd thought ahead! There is a £3 surcharge for room service, but this was fine with me. I did feel quite bad when the waiter brought my dinner over though, as I'd completely forgotten to keep any change back and had a rather embarrassing 'Pretty Woman' moment!

Breakfast is included (Continental or Emglish) at this hotel and if you hang your order out on your front door before 2.00am, room service is readily available. The Full English is lovely, but for the bargain price of £15.00 per breakfast, variety could have been widened.

The sleep at this hotel is wonderful with Queen-sized bed and blackout blinds!

I was asked on check-in if we'd like a wake-up call and I accepted for 9.00am, with breakfast chosen for 9.15 - 9.30am. I also got offered a newspaper too.

I'd chosen to add Woburn Safari Park tickets onto our stay, hence the choice of being woken bright and early on a Saturday morning! I would have loved to have stayed in the enormously comfy bed for an extra hour (there is an all-too-rare luxury of an 11 o'clock check out here!).

This hotel is lovely for a night or two stay and Woburn Village itself is quaint and has a lovely old feel to it. There are plenty of antique shops and tea rooms on the tiny 'High Street' (George Street) and the Abbey is very picturesque.

We would most definitely stay here again!

ENJOY!

Dear VickyC1978,

Thank you for posting your review of The Woburn hotel on this site.

We are delighted to hear how much you enjoyed staying in the Slipperfield cottage last week. This is one of our seven cottages; most popular with our guests as all individually furnished with quirky layouts.

We hope to have the opportunity to return to Woburn very soon and maybe stay this time in one of our ‘Abbey Rooms’ which also include some lovely suites.


Yours sincerely,


David Bouchet
Operations Manager

A couple of weeks ago we just wanted to go somewhere but not far - we ended up exploring wonder and were recommended this hotel for lunch by a local shopkeeper. It did not disappoint - we had a meat and cheese platter and ate in the bar at a reasonable price. We felt a little under dressed as the surroundings are very nice but we were welcomed and well looked after and would go back for dinner sometime!

Room Tip: We did not stay here - only enjoyed a lunch which was very good

We went as part of a large family group for per lunch drinks and, later, for afternoon tea. The surroundings were comfortable and the tea excellent. The service was particularly good - we felt very welcome and the staff took great trouble to find an area where we could all sit together.

My fiancé booked this hotel as a treat for my birthday, and we stayed Saturday-Sunday. The hotel is located in the heart of Woburn and just minutes down the road from Woburn Abbey and Woburn Safari Park.
The hotel has parking which is free situated behind the hotel. The staff throughout our stay were extremely polite and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in the Humphry Repton room which was decorated in red/white, you could see that care had been taken in decorating the room. The room was lovely and clean, with a very comfortable double bed and bathroom with bath/shower combo. We had dinner at Oliviers Restaurant which was delicious and also had a full English breakfast on the Sunday morning (which included tea/coffee, toast, juice and cereal).
For the price of the hotel we were amazed by how much we got included. As well as the stay we had the full English breakfast, the dinner at Oliviers (which was 4 courses), discounted drinks in the restaurant, complimentary entry to the safari park, discounted entry to the Abbey and as we had requested it was a birthday we had champagne, chocolates and flowers on arrival.
This is such a lovely hotel, and we couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. Highly recommended.

Had a lovely afternoon tea at the Woburn hotel. Lovely food and friendly, attentive staff. We had two teas between 3 of us and there was plenty of food. Very nice, fresh sandwiches, not just taken from fridge as other places. Lovely cakes.
