We wanted a night away from parental responsibilities but close enough to home to get back quickly and thought we would try Cornfields, with no greater information than having driven past it a few times. Our experience was overwhelmingly positive. The bedroom we had was, like all the rooms, in a block adjacent to the main restaurant/bar/lounge and as a consequence seemed very quiet and tranquil. The room itself was a good size, all the usual stuff included in terms of kettle, mineral water. Bathroom was similarly of good standard with a great shower.
The restaurant itself is small and the hosts don't appear to seek to over-work it, so on a Sat night there was only one sitting and the service was good and general ambience very relaxed. The food is good, not dazzlingly spectacular but flavours were good and there was a high degree of emphasis on being flexible as everything is cooked to order.
Breakfast on sunday morning was again relaxed and of good quality. Great toast in particular - cooked breakfast seemed exemplary if that is your preferred wake up meal.
All in all it was a pleasure to stay at Cornfields. If you were travelling for business in Bedford or St Neots it would work very well and probably give better experience than chain hotels around these towns.
