From the moment I telephoned to make a reservation through to checking out 24 hours later everything was perfect with standards far higher than some previous reviews led me to expect. The inn is spotlessly clean and in an excellent decorative state, whilst not detracting from the hundreds of years the building has been in use. Furnishings are comfortable and... More

The Longs, an old coaching inn from the 1600s, is undergoing constant refurbishment after previous owners neglect. Friendly staff, a proper old fashioned pub with real beer, there are still things to do. A room in the courtyard is away from the traffic but it's a tight squeeze to fit the cars in, (Horses were narrower)

This is obviously a former stage coach hotel with quirky stairways and passages to the upper rooms. We stayed in the stable room and were completely surprised that on opening the door there was a 4 poster bed. On the main street so lovely for a walk out. Impressed with our fresh cooked breakfast

First visit to this restaurant. Warm welcome as we arrived through the door, service was very good and very friendly. Dinner was nice, I had the steak and kidney pie which was great. Puddings were great, I had treacle sponge and custard. We will return soon. Many thanks.

Longs Inn Hotel is in a very pretty village and has bags of character. The reception staff and bar staff seem to enjoy making their guests welcome and are happy to assist however they can. The room had recently been redecorated in a smart contemporary style. It was a comfortable room with a modern ensuite shower/bathroom. There were also interesting... More

Was greeted by some very attentive and pleasant staff, we were early to check in so the girl who was cleaning offered to do out room as soon as she finished getting rooms ready for weddings. It was lovely to see her again at breakfast the next day. We also dined here in te evening and enjoyed the atmosphere; food... More

We arrived to a reasonably hostile reception and room that wasn't ready. After an hour and a half we walked up to 'Room 1'. Whilst it was clean, the bathroom was like something from the 1930's. After waiting about 10 minutes for the water to reach a temperature narrowly above freezing, I was able to take a shower. When I... More

My wife and I spent a night here whilst visiting nearby Bletchley Park. Longs is an old coaching inn set in the pretty village of Woburn. The room was recently decorated. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was very modern. There's not much more to ask for. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very tasty. All in... More

Spent 1 night here in April and stayed in the main building. Friendly staff and very comfy bed but when we were there both the room and restaurant area were cold - I had to wear my fleece at dinner. A glass of wine with dinner was expensive - over £7. Room was clean but a bit shabby. Disappointed to... More

A very old coaching inn so you have to keep ducking your head when going upstairs and in the bedroom. Room was basic but clean. Bar area and full cooked breakfast very good. I wouldn't rush back but if there was no alternative then I would stay again.
