We came for 1 night with our two boys. On arrival there where plenty of car parking spaces which is great and the children loved the fact there was a swimming pool. We had a lovely big family room with 3 beds and a sea view, ok the furniture is a little dated but that didn't stop us from enjoying... More

Perhaps the manager needs to think before he makes a comment, looks down his nose and when answering reviews perhaps less excuses and more of a proactive attitude. I have to say that I went even though i thought the previous reviews where a bit over exaggerated, but alas this was not to be the case, dirty, funny smells in... More

This is an amended reply. I am sorry to hear the guests did not enjoy their stay and checked out the following day without giving us a chance to rectify the issues. I apologise over the dirty cups, this is certainly not standard practice, and as confirmed by the guest this was mentioned to a housekeeper and she did apologise... More

Stayed in the hotel in July, rooms need updating and was not private at all was on the ground floor next to reception everyone could look in your room I feel this is a terrible place to have rooms set up as you have to have the cutains closed all the time to stop people looking in, breakfast was average....

I’m sorry the guests didn’t enjoy their stay at the Hotel, if they would have mentioned anything to myself or any member of staff we would have gladly moved them to a different room, I cannot resolve anything once the guests have checked out and returned home.

This was my second stay at the Bedford this year and once again found it to be excellent value for money. We were a group visiting this time who had 5 rooms between us with nobody having any complaints. The room I had, 114 was excellent with a large bathroom which was a nice bonus. Will visit this hotel again.
