“Dinner 5th September 2012”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

We had a wonderful meal at Longs Inn last evening and could not find fault with anything. Congratulations to the Chef the best cooked Haloumi I have ever eaten and I used to live in Cyprus. Well done, we will be returning soon.

Rather overpriced I felt for the facilities. Very nice double room with four poster..but bathroom could do with refurbishing to the same standard. Parts of hotel looking a bit dated. Dreadful breakfast... And the table's next to us didn't look much better. Lots of traffic noise too off busy road to front of hotel.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel!

A lovely old fashioned hotel, we stayed for one night after attending a festival and the place was absolutely charming really old and traditional. Can also recommend the cooked breakfast. We definitely stay again.

This is the kind of hotel which encourages people to stay at Travel Lodges and Premier Inns. At £ 75 for a double room, we were surprised to find it was not en-suite. Shabby and uncomfortable. One miserable sachet of shower gel, one packet of biscuits and a kettle lead that did not reach the plug. We met family and used the hotel as a place we could all stay. The others did a little better as they shared a flat ( one bathroom between 3 rooms ). Never mind off to dinner for a forgettable meal. Overdone lamb and steak. Veg extra, a tiny portion. Cheap nasty white wine and the red somewhat better. Lovely waitress.

Room Tip: If you want to stay together as a group, choose the flat, although you might be better off elsewhere...

, Owner at Longs Inn Hotel, responded to this review, July 6, 2012
I am disappointed to hear about your trip advisor review and more so after I have done some investigation with my staff to find that you booked the room on late rooms which clearly states the type of room you have booked -unfortunately not all of our rooms are full en-suite, there are a couple that share a tiolet as described in this cut from the booking you made. "Standard Double Room sleeps 2. Room only. Non Smoking Requested, 1 Adult
This standard double room is well appointed and may either be located in our courtyard (sharing a bathroom with two other rooms which may or may not be occupied) OR In the main building with own en-suite shower, but sharing a toilet opposite."

We understand you were clearly unhappy with this when you arrived and as we explained at the time, we would have upgraded you but unfortunately we were fully booked and unable to do so.

I take on board your comment about the shower gel and will be looking into replenishing what we offer.

Kind Regards

Wow! We've been a bit reluctant due to the reviews. BUT:
Longs Inn has a new management since end of May. We enjoyed the stay.
Very friendly service. Restaurant very tasty and as a resident discount included.
Breakfast more than remarkable.

Lows: Carpet may need a change. However: Just a few weeks at under new management.

Summary: We will come back.

P.S: Woburn and Woburn Sand are attractive (especially with kids). As Non-Englishman: Keep in mind that there is no service at early check-out (at 8:00) on a Sunday.
