Guest reviews

  • Couple

    Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Decor is traditional and charming. Sitting in the reception area and the comfortable lounge gives one a real feel for the Bedford tradition. English breakfast was very good.

  • Older travelers

    It was quiet.

    The hotel needs updating with decoration and could be cleaner.

  • Older travelers

    Food and resataurant were good and staff fine

    Mould in the shower, unclean table cloth at breakfast

  • Single

    The hotel was clean and comfortable, the staff were quick and efficient. The whole process was very smooth.

    The blinds in the bedroom didn't shut fully, there was aplastic bag attached to the ceiling for some reason.

  • Single

    Cheap and cheerful.

    Smokers where outside beneath my window on the 2nd floor. Some smoking chatters started at 0530 in the morning!

  • Group of friends

    Friendly staff, excellent evening meals

    Rooms very dated & exterior in need of repair. Outside our room was a rubbish tip that had used nappies on it!!

  • Single

    The reception welcome was very friendly

    Bedroom and bathroom in need of refurbishment, and a general feeling or 'worn' with the decor and facilities. Car park was very small (about 10 cars at a squeeze for 25 bedrooms). No easy parking nearby either.

  • Single

    This is a budget hotel so my expectations were not high, There was a wedding party on the day I stayed there and obviously the hotel was taken over by the party which is natural. HOwever, as a guest I expected at least basic attention. I was totally ignored by the owner/manager when I asked for a bottle of water for the room- palmed off to the bar staff who tried to palm me off to somebody else! Tv in the room not working- no instructions- rang the reception- somebody promised to come up to fix and also bring water-- never happened- so o early morning tv. Breakfast was shambles! Guests running round to find knives/forkes etc. long waits for a transport cafe fry up! And finally waiting to pay up and get out!

  • Single

    Its quite a 'cosy' hotel. Good value for money accomodation and food. Helpfull staff. Close to station.

    Some of the bar prices too high for the quality of the product. £4 for very poor wine for example. Very small measures for spirits.

  • Older travelers

    Our stay was very comfortable.

    Fire alarm constantly going off during breakfast.

  • Single

    At breakfast , it appeared the hotel was stuggling to cope with a modest (10) number of people all arriving for breakfast within the space of 10 minutes. As a result , in my instance, a 25 minute wait was the result and I nearly didn't bother. No explanation was given which always helps when people are waiting. The food , when it did arrive, was fine.otherwise good value for money and staff very helpful.

  • Single

    The hotel is very dated and the rooms are poorly decorated and look like they havent been re-decorated for many years. The room was extremely small and even though it was a very hot day the heated towel rail was left on maximum. The mattress was uncomfortable with almost no support. There were no pictures of the rooms on the website and the money i paid would have expected a lot better. Had i have known all this i would have booked into a cheaper and much better premier inn.

  • Group of friends

    The staff are very nice and friendly generally. With full english breakfast served daily and free wi-fi connection, the price they are offering is very reasonable. The location is good, you can easily access to Sainsbury or Town Centre in a 10-mins walk.

    The room we lived in was a bit worn-out. The shower went out of hot water on one of the nights, maybe the stuff are a little bit old?

  • Single

    I just stayed one night, so I don't have much too say. However, I think I must highlight the kindness of the staff. The hotel is situated in a calm place.

    During the night there was a noise (don't know what) during all the time and it was a bit annoying.

  • Single

    The location, is a queit, pleasant street with lot of trees, not far from the town centre. The hotel building and the yard are pleasant as well.

    The web site said there was a bathtub in the room i booked, but there was none, only a shower. The radiator constantly made noise even i did not turn it on, could not sleep in the night with the noise going on.
