What a lovely friendly welcome by Luciano who was very helpful And gave us info on places to go to eat when we arrived, we booked to go to Twinwood festival for 2 nights at last minute and unfortunately no rooms were left en suite which we would have preferred but there were 2 bathrooms which were just the job,...

We visited Tennyson House Hotel this weekend and really enjoyed our stay. As we arrived a little late we stayed in the hotel and had a few drinks at the well stocked bar, then ordered from a local takeaway recommended by the owner. The room was very well decorated and the main thing for us was that it was clean.... More

We stayed here one night 20th August, the welcome from Luciano was very genuine. We got good recommendations on where to eat and visit. The room was adequate for our needs and good value for money. Excellent breakfast in the morning and all round a satisfying visit, would stay again when in Bedford

I am a performer and often travel across the UK. It was my first time staying in Bedford and therefore didn't know my way around. As soon as I arrived at the guest house the staff were extremely helpful. They gave me a map and explained how to get to my performance venue as well as how to find local... More

Stayed one night. Good value for the tariff rate. You get a good sized room, en-suite, free wi-fi, and breakfast. Not too far from the train station, a little further to the town centre. Friendly an helpful owners / staff. A little rough around the edges on the decor, but for the rate you can not expect perfection.

The hotel has free Wifi & a free car park although the car park got quite full with vans. The rooms could do with refreshing and the ensuite facilities are rather basic but it was good value for money. The breakfast was good, being served fresh but it would help if it was served on warm plates as it wasnt... More

We booked the Tennyson for family who were staying over after a wedding at the beginning of the month. Everyone was really pleased, the rooms were clean & the staff were really helpful & friendly. The newly wed couple also stayed & their room was made extra special for them at no extra cost. We all met there for breakfast... More

The staff cannot be more friendly and helpful at this small hotel . Breakfast had to ordered when we arrived, which was strange, but it was freshly cooked and of a perfectly acceptable standard. The room was a bit tired, The en-suite shower is very small and potentially dangerous as it is very easy to knock the shower heat control,... More

I stayed at Tennyson House Hotel for 4 days in mid-August. This is an ideal location for a frugal south-asian. The staff is friendly and are willing to go an extra mile to take care of their customers. Rooms amenities are sufficient but its location is a bit far from all the public transit hubs. However, if you are driving... More
