I am on my third stay at the Elms. Would not hesitate to recommend it to family and friends. They have some great En-suite rooms with tasteful decor and the staff cannot do enough to help. In fact, my initial contact with them was an enquiry-but they were full, The staff then spent the next 15 minutes ringing round to... More

New owners, very busy but the usual relaxed ambiance as the they imprint their own visions on the pleasant B&B. Breakfast was up to the excellent standard expected with runny yolks from my poached eggs exploding on my toast to my total satisfaction, the bacon was high quality and tasty. My room was at the front on this visit and... More

Stayed in a single room for one night. The accommodation is clean and tidy, and currently undergoing a program of renovation so should be even better next time! Can't fault the service or the great brekkie either!

My girlfriend and I wanted a weekend break in Bedford, so we decided to stay in a B&B. We met Raisha (best guess at the spelling), a lovely open minded and funny host. Our room was big, with plenty of light, clean and great value for money. Breakfast was very filling and Raisha provided a wide variety of choices. The... More

I have just returned from a 3 week stay at The Elms. I've been coming here for 4 years and I feel that this is my home away from home. The Elms is under new ownership now and the transition between hosts is going well. You can always be assured that things are clean and that your breakfast is freshly... More
