Very friendly staff and owners. Excellent beer and food. Very quiet room even though it is a pub. Perfect location as it's just a short walk to the town centre. We just loved it !! We booked here for a weekend aeromodelling event at Old Warden. It's a perfect place to visit anyway for families. Hope to come again next... More

This is a great place to stay, I've been for drinks here a few times and have always found the pub to be a fantastic place to visit. Great selection of cask ales, and great food, so was expecting great things. Staying there did not disappoint. The room was very clean and tidy, the bedding was excellent quality and I... More

We stayed one night in November whilst visiting friends in Bedford. The room was tastefully decorated and clean, it felt very cosy. We had a good nights sleep there. We spend a lot of the time away from the B n B with our friends so unable to comment on the food. The manager and all the staff we met... More

With our son at Bedford Uni we took the opportunity of making a weekend to see him and his girlfriend. Ignoring the obvious chains we stumbled across The Castle, both of us enjoy a real ale which was a bonus , the rooms and beds very comfortable and the breakfast was (apart from being large) very nice Would stay again,...

Third time we have stayed at The Castle so they must be doing something right. Rooms very clean and tidy. Good range of real ales and decent wines on offer. Full English breakfast was very good. All staff very friendly.

I had to stay in Bedford for business for a week and experienced another hotel before finding this gem! Everything was perfect: room is spacious enough, very comfy and spotless. The food is amazing (really really amazing!!), the staff make you feel home and the couple of owners are always up for a nice chat. Big thanks to the breakfast... More

Lovely small local pub, lots of character with accommodation. We arrived late in the day and got the last room, although very small it was clean and comfortable. Close to the town, easy walk to nearby restaurants and the River. Completely away from tourists, and an evening in the pub with the locals making you feel very welcome was a... More

We did a one-nighter early in July for an event in the town. The access to the hotel is easy if you come in from the opposite direction to that given by the hotel's website link. The car park is contained and adequate. Our room was compact but very well tended, with a very good bathroom, and the whole appearance... More

Great location, food and drink choice, very friendly. Had 3 nights in a very comfy bed, Room service was excellent tea and coffee for rooms very handy. Location was ideal, nowhere was too far to walk, town centre close by.
