IWe we’re absolutely disgusted to be told that this hotel would not accept a £10 Scottish note!!!!! The girl on reception said she would but her boss told her they are not accepted!!! Makes you feel completely stupid! Not a chance we will return here
Avoid unless desperate

Firstly, the lady on reception was lovely, really helpful as my card hadn’t been accepted for payment but she soon resolved this with my friend on arrival The room wasn’t particularly great, comfy bed Hole in the wall near the bed, toilet leaking, shower poor and very slow, room door wouldn’t lock properly Breakfast was included….. a bag with a flapjack, a Capri sun, a yoghurt and a chocolate pastry, all had prices on and where so cheap Coffee in room not the best of quality either Pictures on website are nothing like the rooms Overall, quite a disappointing stay

Redwings was located conveniently for an overnight stopover. I had previously noted the advertisement outside promoting rooms from £39.95 When I made my reservation for our overnight stay, I was given to understand that Redwings Lodge was a Hotel. I was told that there was only one room left and this would cost me £61.20 for the night. Please be assured, this is NOT a hotel. We arrived shortly after 10:30pm into a reception hall which looked more like a local community youth service ticket office. When we asked where the bar was so we could avail of some food and drinks, the receptionist advised they did not have a bar. Tired, hungry and ready for a few relaxing drinks before taking to our room we were shocked. The receptionist could not have been nicer. She was polite and courteous, but said they had no faculty for food or drinks. She advised us to try the restaurant next door - but thought it would be closed. She was correct. Interestingly this place was aptly named BINN. We asked what time we should come down for breakfast, she laughed and told us that "due to Covid" they no longer serve breakfast, instead they now offer a "Breakfast Bag" My expectations were rapidly declining. We asked if we could take the "Breakfast Bags" straight away to our room and she produced two paper bags, each containing a selection of snacks worthy of praise to the bargain shelves of the local pound shop. Yuk! We were given our room key and made our way up the well worn staircase, having to avoid a guest on our way, who was herding her pair of dogs out for a walk etc. We turned the key and opened the door to our room. We were met with the stale smell of cigarette smoke. A well used room with two beds, one double and one single. the double bed was dressed with a plain white thin and cheap duvet. The single bed had no coverings except for a plain sheet over the mattress. The duvet was so thin and of such poor quality, we had to lay our coats on top to keep warm through the night. There was no other bedding in the room to supplement the comfort. The pillows and bedding smelled of stale tobacco smoke. This accommodation would be most welcome to a homeless hobo of to a long distance, chain smoking articulated truck driver, who needs respite from sleeping in his truck cab in a lay-by on the local truck road. Perhaps he or she may even prefer the comfort of the diesel perfumed space they sat in all day as they queued for hours in motorway jams, rather than this grotty, well worn, expensive and disgustingly tired accommodation. We just needed a comfortable bed, bathroom and breakfast for a one night stay. Thank heavens we were not staying for two. The "Breakfast Bags" quickly found their way into the bin as The BINN next door was closed. In summary Redwings Lodge are doing a complete disservice to the hospitality sector. I certainly shall not return and in future shall be more careful to check reviews and actual facilities available prior to making a booking at any "Lodge" disguised as a hotel in the future. I doubt Redwings will ever be awarded an AA star rating but they may well receive a shining accolade and rosette from The Salvation Army or the Local Homeless Hub.
Lovely as always

A lovely stay as always. This place is so spotlessly clean and has everything you could need. The only issue I found was that the bathroom floor was a bit creaky but to be honest it didn't detract from our stay. The staff were very helpful and provided us with extra pillows on request. We will definitely return. Thank you all.
Clean, spacious, excellent location

The room was very spacious and clean. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Excellent location to get to Woburn, Dunstable and Milton Keynes easily. Our room was as close to the road as possible and although it is a very busy road, it really didn’t disturb our sleep at all. The only negatives for us is that there was only one pillow each on the bed and the shower head was fixed in one position (up high) but both of these things are down to personal preference. We found it great value for money and would happily return.
