Each room is very clean with good comfortable beds and is quiet even though Hotel is very busy. The staff like Louise, Jema are very helpful and... More

We were a large group and stayed for 2 night's. Every room was clean and good value with comfortable beds. The breakfast was fine with a good choice. The staff could not have been nicer. The downside side was the prices of the food and drink. £15 for a small portion of pie and mash is, I feel too expensive... More

A typical HIE hotel easily located near Bedford with not a lot nearby. However, unlike most HIE's this has a good menu for diner, the food was fast and high quality. Breakfast was the typical HIE sausage, beans and scrambled eggs. (this could be improved in all HIE's !!) Staff very polite and friendly. I would stay here again if... More

We paid around £47 per night and it includes a buffet breakfast which included cereal, toast, pastries, cheese, yogurt, sausage, beans and eggs. Our room was spotless, comfortable bed (although...

Had the misfortune to stay here on business. Small very basic room which was clean but cold. Turned heating up but after 20 minutes nothing happened, then no one in reception to help. No mirror in bedroom only in bathroom. Useless for ladies makeup! Mirror in bedroom would have made room look bigger. Lighting in room poor. Restaurant unwelcoming and... More

A very busy hotel. But remarkably quiet. Rooms are large and spacious, and spotlessly clean. But what is memorable are the staff. From all the managers, daytime or night time. I even came into contact with a couple of cleaners who do a great job and they were happy and polite. The kitchen staff also. Basically any member of staff... More

We stayed here for two nights whilst getting the trainin into London and back.
