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

This really a restsurant with rooms. Our room was fine.....mostly! 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

We stayed at the Embankment early in March, on arrival we were upgraded to room 101 which has fabulous views over the river. 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

The hotel has undergone a fabulous refurbishment. The downstairs area is very welcoming and gets very busy with locals and guests. The rooms are spotlessly clean with good quality linen. Personally, I found the heating too high and turned the radiator off in my room. I couldn't adjust/turn off the heated towel rail in the bathroom. Minor details could be... More

I booked in for an overnight stay for work and required no more than a place to work and somewhere to sleep. I got much more. Great welcome, a beautiful, spotless, room with river views and a huge free standing bath, and helpful service throughout. I ate dinner and breakfast here - both delicious. I would thoroughly recommend it for... More

First time at this hotel and it won't be the last! Very comfortable room, spotlessly clean, excellent extras - tea/biscuits/toiletries/mineral water. Had one breakfast and one dinner during our stay and the food was superb!

A mixed experience for my first stay in this hotel. It was a celebratory birthday outing with my sister, and I had chosen the hotel specially. As a four star hotel, I was surprised that some basic amenities were not present : No telephone in the room, so I had to revisit reception via the stairs on a number of... More
