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

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

Old fashion values and customer service are alive and well here in abundance, thank you all for a wonderful stay. We will return when your refurbishment is complete and... More

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
