Stayed here mid week - a business traveller. 1st room offered (108) was dark and the noise and smell from the kitchen extractor fan was unbearable, moved to an alternative room which was still dark but no kitchen noise or smell! I agree with other reviewers bed lumpy and uncomfortable, however, the room was clean and did the job. Breakfast... More

We have stayed her on numerous occasions and every time we book we hope that we have another great visit. We were not disappointed. The bar and restaurant has had a gorgeous makeover, it was nice before but now it is even brighter and modern with a lovely warm feel. Our room had a lovely river view...this is our second... More

This hotel has many good things going for it. The location is excellent, situated on the embankment of the very pretty River Ouse. The price is good - we paid £69 for a double room. The room itself was well equipped, and the bed comfortable. There's a restaurant / bar downstairs. There is adequate car parking. So why only give... More

Went for a meal with friends. All of us thought the food was excellent. The service was very good. The restaurant is very pleasant and is in a lovely location along the bank of the Great River Ouse. Will definitely be back. Could see they also catered for families and couples.

Stayed 4 nights whilst in Bedford on business. Booked through Booking.com and got an average room rate of £69 including breakfast which compares well with the Swan just down the road, and the Premier Inn which is out of town. Room was on the 2nd floor and up a lot of stairs - no lift and so no good if... More

I have eaten several times here and mainly for the following reasons: The view of the River Ouse - in the summer time the flowers It's one of the few pub/restaurants in Bedford that allow dogs in the establishment The food is good but over-priced. There is a new menu at the moment and the steak is great although the... More

The room was large and clean, the bed comfortable and the bathroom well appointed....but there was no door between the bathroom area and the bedroom.......in fact there were two doorways. The loo had a door but the lights worked in sequence with the bathroom lights , so when the loo... More

The room was large very clean and a comfortable bed in fact everything you could want. It is well placed on the embankment for either walks by the river or to get into town with it's plethora...

Met friends at the Embankment for drinks. Nice, relaxed and comfortable. Being just out of town it wasn't too busy and meant we could hear each other. Great selection of wine and beers. They also accommodated children in the restaurant and had a function on as well.

Good hotel, Nice and clean room, Bar was lovely as was the drinks they served. Bath was great to sink in to after a long drive. Was let down by the very lumpy bumpy uncomfortable bed. Looked great but as soon as you pulled the duvet back and climbed in you could feel the uneven nature. This meant for a... More
