The inn is almost in the centre of Woburn and is ideal as a base if visiting the surrounding area.eg the Safari park, Abbey and Bletchley Park. Our stay was very pleasant, it was very quiet at night and the room was nice, the bed was comfortable and tea / coffee facilities were great. The Full English Breakfast was brilliant...

We really enjoyed our stay at Longs Inn. We stayed in room 1 with our twin 2 year olds and couldn't have found it more comfortable. The room was clean, spacious and well-equipped. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, both on arrival and at breakfast. James was an absolute legend; nothing was too much to ask. The breakfast was...

Booked by chance, not all rooms have ensuite, our did and we were pleased. Some off road parking but access tight for those with over fat cars. This is clearly described in the booking so fair enough. Excellent breakfast. We did not use the restaurant but only because we wanted a walk. WiFi as ever in hotels a bit patchy...

Everything was acceptable, perhaps a little tired in places. But for a one night stay and at the price available it was good value. The staff were friendly and the room was clean and comfortable, so not much else you can ask for. Was incredibly hot in the room though.

When you book into somewhere last minute you come to expect that you might not catch people at their best. However, I cannot fault the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff at Longs Inn who processed our telephone booking and late check-in. I was made to feel like a valued customer and as if no question or query would be...

We had 6 clients booked in with early morning starts for each of them. On the Saturday at 8 pm no staff were to be seen . When they eventually showed , we were informed that on a Saturday breakfast started at 8.30. For a B&B this is reidiculous, and no apology was offered . .

Our apologies for the late reply and thank you for your feedback from your stay with us. Unfortunately there are some areas within the hotel that do look tired, we are in the process of refurbishing but being an independent company it sometimes does take a little longer to get round to.

We stayed here last night. The room was very clean, staff were really helpful and the breakfast was great. Lots of free parking was a real bonus too. It's a lovely inn with lots of period charm that we would happily recommend. Excellent value
