We visited d'Parys for the second time to celebrate my mother in laws birthday last night, we sat in the garden for an hour before the meal; the garden and restaurant are beautiful with a lovely relaxing atmosphere. We ordered our meals and service was great so far, polite, friendly and informative. We then all thoroughly enjoyed our various starters... More

My room was room 7 what a lovely spacious room and very nicely decorated and most importantly very very clean. I went for breakfast in the morning and... More

We stayed at d'parys for one night in July - the standard of accommodation was superb. We had room 15 and I would have expected to pay twice the price for a room of this standard. The restaurant was very reasonably priced and the service was excellent - probably because everything else about the hotel was so exceptional we were... More

A very impressive bar and dining area ( we had dinner and didn't stay overnight ) and the staff were friendly and competent. My two colleagues had no complaints about the food, and my starter was terrific. However, my main course was disappointing inasmuch as the meat was very tough and I was unable to eat all of it. Also,... More

This is my second stay at this hotel, the first shortly after the refurbished Du Parys opened. I left a review then and gave feedback on my stay to the hotel directly but nothing I fed back had been taken notice of. In fact I found the early enthusiasm of the staff had gone completely . There was no one... More

Thank-You for taking the time to leave us another very detailed review, we have trained and retrained the check in/check out process. However the other issues you raise or have raised previously we cannot change they are there by design and not by accident. We do have rooms that are slightly smaller which don’t have the features you don’t like... More

Stayed here on our wedding night. Our room was amazing -side by side baths, comfy bed, love the decor and traditional furniture and to top it breakfast was great! Perfect way to end the perfect day! Only negative is that I didn't think the staff were very friendly, no help in with bags etc.

We have stayed several times since it opened. We were blown away by our room ! Just beautiful. The rooms are really lovely and the beds are so comfortable. Some problems with fixtures though- all the toilet seats seem to be loose and the bath tub plugs broken. Water damage on the ceiling in one room but staff said soon... More

We have eaten regularly at the d'Parys since it opened; it is fair to say it hasn't always been consistent in food quality or service but we truly feel that the restaurant has turned the corner. Robert was our waiter, his level of service was most excellent and the quality of food was also great. The children love going to... More

We stayed in the imperial Russian room. This was our first visit at De Parys. Wow the room was fantastic with a very comfy bed. Great food (loved monkfish and mussaka) and excellent service! We will be back again!!!

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
