“Falling short on the little things......”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Lovely personal hotel with good service. But for the price why can't the shower have proper pressure and stick to hot or cold. No aircon which at this price ahould be standard. And breakfast buffet felt tired and lacking. Such potential but not yet fulfilled.

We stayed here as a group of golfers playing at Woburn GC. The hotel was lovely and the rooms were more than adequate for us. The bar was very good and one thing that was noted was that because the bar and road was away from the rooms then the level of noise was low and ensured that we all had a good nights sleep.

The breakfast was a buffet and I like this as I can choose what I like rather than being given a cooked tomato!

I would not stay anywhere else when coming back to Woburn.

Room Tip: The cottages look amazing

Dear Adam G,

Thank you for your review.

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit at the Inn but also the renowned Woburn Golf Club.

I hope that our good english breakfast set you for a day of great golf and maybe you also had the opportunity to treat yourselves to a visit to Woburn Safari Park and Woburn Abbey.

Once again thank you.

Kind regards

The Inn is a very good hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and make you feel genuinely welcome. Everywhere is nicely decorated and well maintained. The bedroom was a bit small, but adequate and the same applies to the bathroom.

The food was excellent, especially for the group dinner arranged for our meeting.

The meeting room facilities are good, and the hotel has free wifi which was reliable and reasonably fast.

Overall very much recommended.

The afternoon tea was delicious, the finger sandwiches, scones and cakes with lashings of tea, jam and really good clotted cream but what made the day was our attentive waitress who overheard that it was mum's birthday and to the chef who sent out a decorated plate and hand made chocolates; Mum was thrilled! All the staff were brilliant as she is very deaf and sometimes cantankerous!! She thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. Thankyou.

My new husband and I can't express how delighted & impressed we were and are with the organisation, service, friendliness, professionalism and attention to detail from you all at The Inn At Woburn, we had a faultless day with fantastic food to add. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough for a wedding, it exceeded our expectations, we would especially like to thank Karen (events organiser) for being with us all the way, she was a true star! Also Tamas and his wonderful friendly staff, we believe Tamas is a credit to the hotel, he looked after us attentively but discreetly all day and through to breakfast the following morning, which we would like to add was fantastic, on reading a previous negative review regarding the self service buffet we wholeheartedly disagree, beautifully cooked and as much as you wanted, what is there to complain about? so we would both like to 'thank you all' for an amazing day, you worked so hard, it was all we we could have dreamt of and more!

Stayed for business, and had a room in new wing. Room itself was fine, although bathroom had very low shower water pressure and I can not stand shower curtains. They just stick to you when showering. Hotel staff are friendly, which is good. Breakfast is not too good, I'm not a fan of buffet style cooked breakfast. I don't think a 4* hotel should be doing this......it should be cooked to order.

Overall, hotel is reasonable, but could be better with little touches.

Thank you for posting your review of the Inn on this site.

I am sorry to hear that you had issues with the water pressure. The matter is being monitored and although it should never occur, it does at the least expected time. Again I am sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Breakfast: we do offer buffet and platted service and if this was not offered to you on the day, I apologise. Buffet service is favoured by conference and other groups of guests and as a three star hotel this level of service meets the requirements of our rating.

Once again thank you for your feedback and I do hope that the shortfalls you have encountered during your last stay will not prevent you in using the Inn in the near future.

Yours sincerely,

The Inn at Woburn was a great choice of venue for a getaway break for my partner and I.

Being local to us was important but so was a quality stay, Inn at Woburn provided these two handsomely and more.

I (Mr) wanted a special night for us and from booking to leaving, the whole experience left me feeling refreshed. The staff were very polite, accomodating and welcoming.

The room was very clean, had been laid out as i asked and furnished nicely. All in all we were both very happy indeed in general and would not hesitate to recommend to anybody.

I will look forward in the future and say that we will be staying again and want to say thanks to all staff in making our stay a very pleasant one indeed.

Thanks
