“Wait a year before you go!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here for 1 night, good to know faulty towers is alive and well in Bedford! They are in the middle of a major refurbishment and have completed the downstairs however the bedrooms leave a lot to be desired. While clean they are very sad, paint and wallpaper peeling, carpets grubby, only available socket was miles from a mirror so hair drying was a challenge. Breakfast was a joke, unhappy staff breakfast was all buffet including tea and coffee in large jugs, stewed. Eggs were swimming in grease when eventually they arrived from the kitchen.
In all fairness the receptionist listened to our complaints and explained about the refurb and staff problems and the room was only £65 for a double with breakfast but I would really advise that you get a refurbished room!

Beautiful building, great grounds and it was full, great for a wedding.

We booked the hotel for our Silver Wedding anniversary, we were not disappointed with any aspect of the hotel. From the moment we walked through the door we were welcomed by polite & extremely welcoming staff & the hotel itself was lovely. We dined in the restaurant & the food was well cooked & tasty, the service excellent. Breakfast was superb, lots of choice & the cooked items were cooked by a chef who knew their craft, very tasty & good quality ingredients used. Again service could not be faulted. We will return again & have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

We stayed 2 nights in the Woodland Manor Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it.
It's a grea location; very nice and quiet but also close to shops and restaurants.
The rooms are spacious and the bathroom was big too. It was all nicely furnished, even had a sofa in the bedroom and the room was about 25m2. The bed was comfortable and everything was very clean.
OK, the wallpaper was damaged in places but it didn't deduct from the great experience.
The breakfast was amazing; lots of choice and everything was fresh and beautiful.
All the staff was really friendly and helpful and we loved it there so much, we wanted to book it for our wedding, but unfortunately the day we had in mind was already booked up...
It's a fantastic hotel and we will definitely go back.
Highly recommended.

This hotel is well worth a visit. The staff are very friendly and the service is good.We booked this hotel so that we could visit Cambridge and it is only about 45mins drive away. The rooms are clean and quite spacious,the food in the restaurant is good quality and reasonably priced.I can't understand why more guests do not use the restaurant.

Room Tip: We had room 20 which had patio doors on to a terrace.

Thank you for your comments. The restaurant menu has just been recently revamped so we are hoping to bring in more business to that side of things.
We hope to see you again in the near future.

Just stayed at the Woodlands Manor and I would certainly recommend this place to anyone.
This hotel sits in its own grounds and well maintained. Staff are excellent cannot do enough for you.
On arrival reception could not find my booking for a single room, they were so apologetic and gave me a double room for the week at the same price as the single
The rooms are spacious and decorated to a high standard.
The staff are really friendly and helpful and work very hard to make your stay enjoying .
Breakfast is served from 7am in the morning during the week and at 8am at the weekend unfortunately I was not informed of this only to come down for breakfast at 7am on Saturday morning to find the kitchen closed, the young lady on reception organised bacon on toast & tea.
That’s service with a smile.
Enjoyed it so much book back in this week.
