Bedford is a lovely town, and the Castle Inn a lovely place to stay. Our rooms were well-kept and spacious, with a comfortable queen bed and bunk beds in a second room, a shower and tub and fluffy towels. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was confusion about our reservation--we had thought it was for two nights, but they... More

Myself and my family went to this pub on a Sunday evening after a family gathering up the road and we all had a brilliant time. The staff were so lovely and friendly, we felt like regulars almost straight away. We didn't stay here, but wished we had after our visit and we definitely will whenever we're staying again. Would...

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
