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

I had to be in Bedford for one night and stayed at the Tennyson House Hotel. The hotel is very clean although in need of some tlc in places which should not put you off staying here. I stayed in room 1 on the ground floor which is next to the front door so did have some noise from people... More

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
