My wife and I stayed here for two nights, in room 2 (in the main hotel building), on a DBB basis. We found the hotel which surprisingly did not have the usual large BW sign outside. There was plenty of parking.
We were pleasantly greeted at reception and shown to our room. This was large with a four poster bed, large wardrobe, window seat, coffee table, big tv and three chairs. There was plenty of storage space, though no fridge or safe. A kettle and coffee and tea supplies were on the coffee table. Also, to our surprise, complimentary decanters of whisky and brandy! Two packets, of Lotus Biscoff, each containing one biscuit, were supplied which we thought was rather disappointing. Also disappointing was the tea comprised typhoo tea only - no green tea, earl grey or fruity types.
The bathroom had a bath, separate shower and WC. A useful feature was the toilet roll holder which could be positioned to suit! The water was always hot. Toiletries comprised moisturising cream, shampoo and bath/shower gel.
One poor aspect of the bed was the poor lighting if we wanted to read in bed. Although there was a light beside the bed, the drape of the four poster shaded the light.
Wifi was good, reliable and reasonably fast.
Breakfast was a lovely selection of cold food to which you help yourself and hot food cooked to order. The cold food included fresh fruit, cereal, juice, croissants, pastries and yoghurt. The waiter was friendly and remembered our coffee and tea order. Breakfast starts at 0630 weekdays and 0800 at weekends which may be a little late for some.
Servicing of the room was ok but they removed the very slightly used shampoo and shower gel, replacing them with two shower gels. We had to get more shampoo from reception. There were a couple of very minor maintenance issues with fixtures in the bathroom which we notified the reception of when checking out. Included in these was the extractor fan in the bathroom gave no sign of working. In no way did these minor issues detract from our enjoyment.
The quiet location in the village and nearby attractions of Woburn Abbey were excellent. The hotel appears to be used mainly by business people during the week when we were there. However, at weekends the hotel hosts weddings so this might affect the parking and cause noise. There are no shops in the village. There is an Indian and Thai restaurant next door. Also the nearby Anchor Inn and restaurant, which has been closed for refurbishment, should be open again in mid September. The hotel has its own restaurant which is good and reviewed elsewhere. However, note that the allowance for Dinner is £25 which is not sufficient to cover 3 courses unless you choose the cheapest options. less
