Stayed at this hotel whilst attending an athletics event at the near by stadium. Customer service here is excellent, so is the breakfast. We stayed in a family room. Beds were comfortable and nicely made, nice clean towels. The en suite was obviously an addition to a large room but was clean. Close to the town centre. Will definitely be... More

My sister booked the room for both of us so I wasn't sure what I was going to find but was pleasantly surprised. There was a secured car park, the room and bathroom were clean and well presented. The customer service was the best I've received in a long time. My sister and I stayed at various hotels in different... More

This is the ideal place if all you want is a roof over your head for the night, a good breakfast, and then be on your way. My stay was entirely based around a day visit to London (Wembley Stadium specifically), and the impossibility of getting a late-night train back home to Liverpool. Having been brought up in Bedford I... More

I arrived from Strasbourg after an arduous journey to Bedford but found the Hotel easy to find, near the station and appreciated the friendly warm welcome on arrival. I was given places to grab something to eat, (it was quite late) close by facilities I could use and a street map which I found very useful. I liked the choice... More

I stayed here mainly because it was close to where I needed to be the next day. The hotel was off a very busy main road but had a large sign at the front so was easy to find. Parked around the back with lots of parking spaces. On arrival I was warmly welcomed and told about a few things,... More

I stayed one night in a double ensuite on my own - it was great value for single occupancy and so would be excellent value with 2 sharing! Full English breakfast included. Warm room on a windy night, welcoming and helpful staff, clean throughout, and well situated for the railway station and the centre of town.

The welcome service felt really good after a long and tiring road trip of 500 kilometers driving. Check-in went really smoothly, any question I had about facilities or about the town of Bedford was answered kindly and patiently. Just what you need when you need rest and comfort. The room was very clean, towels nicely put on the bed, free... More

I booked this last minute and was looking for a cheap place to stay and was VERY surprised at how great value for money this was. I paid £35 for a single room (sharing bathroom) with breakfast included. However, everything was just great, room and bathrooms were VERY clean, staff very friendly and helpful. Most importantly the room was warm... More

Just stayed here for 4 nights. First night not so good! Lovely double room but on the busy roadside and by the front door. Noisy traffic from 6am and noisy door banging when people go in and out. Mentioned it to the owner at breakfast who went out of her way to move us to a quieter twin room at... More
