Attentive and friendly staff, delicious breakfast, charming room, good size bathroom, plenty of car parking and a nice garden/terrace to the rear of the hotel - highly recommended. It's not a criticism but would recommend a slightly larger bar area/lounge for pre-meal drinks and nightcaps!
Location, style and furnishings, size of room Booking process, hotel couldn't handle booking so had to make this via Active website. Although spoke to hotel and agreed which room would be allocated, this was not known on arrival - advised had been allocated a) twin (double agreed) b) not in main house (agreed would be in main house) c) room 5 (room 11 allocated). In the end allocated room agreed on phone but like drawing teeth. Pressurised to book dinner on arrival (at noon) without any invitation to view menu - we didn't in the end eat there. Said on 2 occasions on arrival that we would leave bag as we were 'visiting the House (ie Waddesdon Manor) and would therefore only need to have access to room after that. On accessing room and reading hotel details, found out that guests received free entry to the ground of the Manor, which would have saved us 10 pounds, but we weren't advised of this. Breakfast next day. Sat and waited for table to be dressed. No butter or preserves, had to get left over butter from next table. Preserves never arrived. Gave order to disinterested young girl. My order - scrambled eggs with bacon. Arrived - no bacon. Had to ask much older lady who delivered food for this. Then asked for mustard which not provided. When older lady delivered comment was 'well anything else' in a 'don't bother me again' attitude - didn't like to ask for preserves!! Orange juice had run out had to ask for this. Unshaven (and this not from me but my partner) lad also serving very offhand. Overall the hotel is lovely - reason I booked it was that I had arranged a corpoate event there 2 years ago for international racing people lunch and private view of Waddesdon Manor, so wanted to show this and the Manor to my partner, just a shame it was let down not by overall experience but a combination of little annoyances - eg bedside light not working. Why not have a checklist of setting a table and checking a room and tick each item off to ensure everything as it should be. Would recommend to others and stay again if in the area but such a shame to be let down. (Also noted that others at breakfast were asking for eg a glass, salt & pepper on other tables).
Wonderful friendliness and helpfulness from all of the staff.
The room and the the choice of breakfast was excellent and all the staff were friendly and helpful. Waddesdon Manor and gardens are close by and well worth a visit
Staff were helpful but not intrusive. Interior comfortable and gardens beautifully laid out.
Fantastic location for Waddesdon estate, hotel very clean and historic building. We had a room at the back which was great. Had a good welcome at the village church. First course of evening meal was not up to scratch. The staff were very helpful, friendly and made the stay enjoyable, but there seems to be a lack of overall management in the hotel as it lacked a bit of organisation.
Just around the corner from Waddesdon Manor, which has fantastic art and building, well worth visiting. Hotel is a lovely period building that used to be part of Waddesdon estate, well maintained. Lovely garden, sit and have drinks. Nice room and bathroom. Staff foreign and somewhat clueless but nice people. Restaurant has good food but looks like pub seating. Internet did not work.
The hotel is very clean and tidy and the staff were polite and friendly, the bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfast was excellent with a choice of continental, cooked, or for a small supplement you could have kippers or smoked salmon. None
The room was a delight. Comfortable bed, crisp white bedlinen, well aired and nice view. Tastefully furnished and spacious. The window opened, always a good point for me and my Husband. Very good evening meal. Excellent choice of wines. Friendly and helpful staff. For a fried breakfast the bacon was thick and undercooked, the egg was lifeless and the tomatoes were dull and listless. The room we were in was near the kitchen fans. I would ask for a room in another part of the Hotel next time.
Breakfast excellent Fan in bathroom extremely loud and obviously faulty
Location, helpful staff, room and bedroom area security At breakfast I ordered smoked haddock and was served haddock. Lovely for lunch but not breakfast. I do not think the member of staff knew what smoked haddock is.
The hotel was very comfortable and steeped in history. The hot water on the top floor of the hotel lacked pressure and was not always hot.
I liked the atmosphere about the place, the rooms were very clean and appealing, The waiters and waitresses were very obliging, and polite.There was a very comfortable feel about the whole place. My only reservations were regarding the unavailability of items on the food menu and the wine list.
Very comfortable , excellent VFM , good food and the staf were very pleasant and helpful No complaints at all
food, staff interior of the hotel part (pub is ok)
Nice-sized family room. Good breakfast. Curtains and fittings strating to look a bit tatty.
Room was adjacent very busy road and hence very very!!! noisy which was a shame as it was a very good room for the price otherwise. had to set off at 7 20 am full breakfast not available till 7 30 am although toast coffee etc was provided
The food & neil diamond tribute

No stairs as requested. Good fOOD Lacked local people with familiraty to stony
Good position with plenty to do in town Late party with loud music playing. No lights working on the corridor of the Coach House
Comfortable hotel with interesting history
Good value. Reasonably comfortable room well equipped.Breakfast choices good. Staff friendly. Room decor rather tired. Room a little cramped, therefore bed not a large double. Lighting in room rather dull.Some delay in getting the order of things right at breakfast E.g long wait for tea/coffee, toast not arriving with main breakfast.
I was looking for a rustic village inn with some character, this is exactly what I got, wooden beams in the room and antique furniture, slanting floors and creaking floorboards. The Cock Hotel is comfy and cosy and very welcoming. Perfect for a weekend getaway, we would defintely go back. Very happy customer.
It was quieter than we expected which was good. Had a good feel to it. It will be better when the renovations are complete. It will be an achievement to complete by 9th!
Good service and value.
We attended a wedding reception which was organised very well - our room was comfortable. No dislikes at all
Very friendly service,from all staff, food very good, room very quiet
Room close to car park Room smelt damp. Breakfast not good
Big room and very clean. The staff were relatively helpful and friendly. The food wasn't "bad" but, nothing to write home about. Certainly not complaining though, they give a discount if you're staying there.
Lovely room, friendly staff, great location Good to read about the history The breakfast part - it wasn't clear in the booking process that the default was a continental breakfast, which wasn't very inspiring.
staff were very helpful, the hotel was clean and tidy, great location in center of village and woburn abbey n/a
Smart clean little pub with rooms staff are great,rooms OK perhaps a touch of tlc in the not to distant future would be good,but I would go back to stay at Longs.
Restaurant served wonderful, reasonably priced, local food
Lovely old building, good bar with locals in attendance, good restaurant, clean comfortable room, nice people None
Good position in village good food plenty of parking character inn Stairs but I am slightly disabled added to ambiance
