This is a comfortable and good value small hotel close to Bedford and I would recommend it to anyone who needs to be in or near the town. Room good and breakfast acceptable. If you are a member of the group rewards club you can get a room here for 15000, which I did.

Stayed for two nights with a friend after travelling up from Cornwall to attend a party. Room was very nice albeit functional, and very clean. Breakfast was included in the price and was very nice, although I never did find the latte. Certainly enough to keep you going for the day. I had a few problems with the WiFi but... More

Friendly, efficient, cheerful staff. Comfortable spacious room, our dog also enjoyed her stay. Comfy bed and a plenty of pillows.rather badly positioned strip light along the top of the headboard, not great for sitting up watching Tv in bed. Immaculate, functional shower room. Night light a really nice touch. Close to the railway but triple glazing meant we weren't disturbed... More

Much more suited to the business user, this hotel has everything you'd expect. Free wi-fi, clean rooms and good service. The only thing that let's it down is the food. Totally hit and miss, nothing seems to be home made, a selection of ready meals garnished with a mountain of salad. It does the job but if your stay is... More

Stayed two nights we booked in on the Friday night and the lady behind the counter was lovely. Hotel was clean and tidy and most of the staff were friendly and polite. The rooms were excellent!! A big plus was the free wifi. But the bar staff were slow. Not much variety and serving dishes not refilled very fast (when... More

Stayed two nights while working in the area. Hotel was clean and tidy and staff were friendly and polite. The room was ok but the air con unit was noisy - you could hear them start up in other rooms at night too. A big plus was the free wifi. The major leg down was the hot food in the... More

Stayed here for one night, when we arrived the WiFi wasn't working but the moment they got it running again we got a free upgrade so faster internet :-) Room was clean, breakfast basic but good value for money.

Hard to find as Postcode not corresponding with direction into the hotel. Bright airy reception, clean and tidy rooms, lovely breakfast which includes scrambled egg, sausage and beans plus lots of other lovely things to eat as much as you want.
