Our large group stayed recently in this welcoming and warm B&B. The owner couldn't have treated us better. She prepared our requested vegetarian breakfast beautifully, the rooms were clean and comfortable and nothing was too much bother. I would stay again and recommend this B&B.

The Elms is a wonderful place to stay. It is well located in the heart of Bedford city and is convenient to most places. The people are very friendly and helpful no matter how crazy your situation is ( since I was in one ). The rooms are neat, clean and tidy. It is well priced with a very delicious... More

this is a fantastic place to stay, the owners are welcoming and polite, they cater for your needs, the rooms are clean and the whole place has a certain elegance and sophistication. Plus the vegetarian breakfast was amazing, they really went the extra mile to make sure my dietary needs here met.

Excellent location and great service. Checked in late, everything was arranged for me so it was hassle free. Directions left to guide me local restaurants. Breakfast was very good and the owner and staff were delightful. Close to the town centre. This is the first B&B that I have every stayed in that I would recommend. It did not disappoint!

I have been staying here for over a year now and I must say how clean and tidy every where is including Rooms Sharon who is the Manager here is one in a million she can not go out her way to help you.

A regular at The Elms every week for the last 5 months for my line of work. Lovely homely breakfast with variety of fresh fruit and all the extras. Excellent hosting from a lady called Sharon. Looks after me around the clock on each stay. Here for the long haul. Just like home! 😊

You will have seen my positive reviews from the past about this guest house but not on this occasion and it didn't even happen!! I was wary since someone posted that they had been let down and made a point not to stay there and only phoned as I thought, mistakenly, my regular hotel was full (not the case). I... More

The Elms Bedford is a comfy B&B within easy walking distance of Bedford Town Centre. We made a group booking for 20 people to stay a maximum of 5 nights (some only 1 or 2). They were able to cope with special diets and nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff. Good clean comfy rooms. We will be... More

We really enjoyed our stay at The Elms when we were visiting from Australia in August this year. We were very pleased with our spacious room and the beds were really comfortable. Sharon gave us a warm welcome when we arriving and was always obliging. The Guest House had such a wonderful English charm, especially the dining room, and we... More
