As per the title of my review, this hotel is almost a 5 but not quite. It could be quite easily tho. The hotel and bar staff and fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble and the food is excellent. The staff and the food make this place stand out from other hotels. Smartly dressed yet with a casual feel. The... More

Stayed at this hotel for the second time within a year on the same horrible room: 108 The fact that it has a freezing bathroom, or the spider found on the bed is not what makes this room a torture room. The main problem here is that the window is facing the smoke extractor of the kitchen that makes a... More

I have just been to Sunday lunch at the embankment, food was great and filling, well presented. I went with my mother and children. We all enjoyed it very much. Service was great, the girls are very informative, attentive and served with a smile... We will definitely return.

This is the local place with a cosmopolitan feel to it . You can go here for a quiet meal or a drink with friends . Once a year 20 of us book their party room for a Xmas meal and have a ball! It is walking distance but you always feel that you are somewhere special. Home from home,... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for his birthday and it was an amazing room overlooking the river. Would definitely stay here and would certainly recommend it. Cant wait to go back! Right near the town centre. The only thing is parking but plenty of nearby car parks

Beautiful pub/hotel on a beautiful waterfront position and excellent location, resturants, bars & shops nearby plus the beautiful park and lake areas of Bedford. We paid £130 for a 2 night stay in Room 110. The room was a nice size with a large en-suite shower room attached. My only issue with the room was the bed which even though... More
