Looks amazing, will give the embankment hotel a run for its money. Love the ice cream bar and sweet shop. Agree that bar area could have been bigger, but decor is fabulous. Cannot wait for hot summer evening to sit in the beautiful garden,love the fairy lights. We only went in for a drink, but ended up eating, thirteen pounds... More

I visited Sunday for Sunday roast lunch with a friend and had a lovely time. The food was great, wish I could make Yorkshire puddings like that! Our lady that served us was really knowledgeable about the wine and helped explain the way the wine menu worked when choosing a glass. My only grouch was with the roast potatoes, definitely... More

My partner and I ate in the restaurant on a Wednesday night - we live not far from the restaurant so we were excited about trying it out having watched the refurb with interest. Unfortunately we both felt very disappointed with the experience. They've made a good effort with the interior and it's a nice place, but there was confusion... More

Came in for a drink with my wife, found the customer service below standard. Which would put me off coming again for a drink let alone eatting with here. Staff were disorganised, talking loudly about personal lives. This is at the front of house make. Not the best impression need some work before I go back

We came along on a Sunday morning for a family breakfast and had a lovely time. We all loved the deco, really well thought through and has a great ambience. The staff couldn't be lovelier and our very helpful German waitress (sorry didn't catch her name) really made an effort. All the staff were super with our young children. The... More

We went with a party of 15 mixed age couples. Bar area and booking in quite complicated. The staff were very friendly but unable to cope with so many. It was very noisy and although she had a loud voice we could not hear what she said. We had to wait ages for a menu and then for her to... More

Only able to stay here for one night on way back home.You must give it a try, it is so quirky. We were greeted so pleasantly by all the staff and this was continued in the morning at breakfast, nothing was too much trouble. There were other diners there just having turned up for breakfast.

Went on a Saturday evening after hearing about the refurbishment. Great interior/furnishings, food - delicious and staff very personable and friendly. Just one piece of advice though - keep it simple! There was some awkward confusion with being seated; the maître d told us he didn't want us to sit down straight away so told us to have a drink...

D'Parys seems to have recently received a significant refurbishment. The bar/restaurant areas are stylishly designed. The room we had was amazing, very high standard, comfortable bed and quality fixtures. The only down side was when we arrived, the check in is in the busy bar, the staff seemed to be slightly overwhelmed making the check-in process more complicated than needed.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to d'Parys - the home of premium d'rinking, d'ining, and d'reaming located in the heart of Bedford on De Parys Avenue. D'Parys is an all fresh food restaurant, a d'istinctive city bar, a coffee and tuck shop offering nostalgic sweets with handmade cakes and gelato with 14 d'reamy bedrooms. We celebrate Bedford's brewing, education and industrial heritage using exposed bricks and iron to create a unique and frankly rather random mix of Victorian style and contemporary design. We are casual not formal making d'Parys a great place to enjoy a Saturday night treat; a catch up with friends over a mid-week coffee; a place to bring the kids for homemade ice cream before a trip to Bedford Park; somewhere for meetings with business colleagues; or the first choice for the paper over a freshly cooked breakfast at the weekend after a relaxing overnight stay. ... more   less
