Stayed at the Woodland Manor Hotel for a short night as I was racing at Palmersport in the morning. Very comfortable and welcoming staff. The rooms are clean and functional, although the decor is a bit 90's. I enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.

Stayed for two night in August and it was most disappointing. The room was filthy (see the photos). The bathroom was probably never cleaned for at least for some weeks, the carpet with dead moth clearly indicates that housekeeping standard is at the bottom. What a disgraceful standard. The bar would not take a credit card payment nor let me... More

24 of us arrived after a fun day of golf. The receptionist was very good, all rooms ready and allocated. The rooms were bigger than expected, well appointed. The evening meal was good, the bar convivial . It has a nice terrace. All in all good, not special.

Woodland Manor Hotel is a beautiful building surrounded by pleasant gardens. It has the potential to be fantastic, but needs some TLC. Many rooms need refurbishing, water pressure and temperature poor, dining room not welcoming. Having said that the staff were helpful and friendly, public areas are comfortable and the feel of the place is good. We would certainly stay... More

We got married here last weekend and it was fantastic. A beautiful venue with some old english country charm. All staff were fantastic in particular Harriet who was amazing. Food was scrumptious and rooms were beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. Thanks for a great day.

Lovely country manor- set in rural countryside. However 1. The quilts on the bed are too thick for summer. 2. Slept with window open. There was a mechanical noise all night - not sure f it's a pump - it's quite loud. Combination of the above meant did not get a decent night's sleep so was not fresh for work... More

I've stayed at the hotel about 4 times now. Its off what used to be the main A6 but with the building of the Clapham bypass, its now in a very quiet location. It's not recently refurbished rather its still got most of its old furnishings. There's no aircon, etc. But it is very quiet. The bathrooms are clean and... More

My son & I stayed in this hotel for one night whilst visiting relatives. Because of the nature of our stay we didn't have breakfast or an evening meal here. Our twin room was lovely, clean and bright and a great size too with a bathroom of ample proportions. The beds were lovely and comfy. We overlooked the terrace (at... More

Well located for Bedford and surrounding areas. Nice grounds but hotel needs a refurb. Water in showers is hit and miss. Depending on the room you're in (26) very little pressure for shower and one millimetre movement on tap takes shower from freezing to blisteringly hot. Bed comfortable with nice garden views. Breakfast was excellent! Cooked fresh to request of... More

The hotel is a very attractive looking building set in well kept gardens surrounded by lawns and trees. The Receptionist was very friendly and we went up to our room which was nice with a large adjoining bathroom. I had ordered a bottle of champagne upon arrival which was part of the deal and it was there waiting and chilled.
