It was my 2nd time visit for lunch and again it was very dissapointing. Horrible sandwiches, we didn't receive what we ordered, and the service was not so good. There was no apology and we are defenitly not going back!!!!

I stayed with a friend the day before my wedding, and the staff were great at helping with all the little things, that make a difference. Food is great, riverside view great, staff are all friendly and helpful, and the hotel rooms are clean, comfortable and stylish. Great value for money

Walked in on Saturday late afternoon and got a table. Staff were very welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. The bar area had a good atmosphere and restaurant area offered a quieter environment. Food was a little pricey but worth it - I had the lamb sharer.

Had a weekend break in Bedford and chose The Embankment Hotel. We had a very enjoyable stay and although we had a room at the side of the hotel it was clean and comfortable. The bathroom looked as though it had been recently decorated and the shower was super. Breakfast was lovely with a big choice of items on the... More

My husband and I had a lovely room looking out onto the river. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, nicely decorated and very clean, with a huge bed. We ate in the restaurant which was very busy but we didn't have to wait and the meal was delicious. The breakfast was cooked to order... More

On a quick trip into town we thought we would find somewhere to grab something to eat and have been meaning to visit here many times. Lovely exterior and inside was beautifully presented too. Was brilliant as there was plenty of room for my pram too. The extensive menu was hard to choose from but thought we'd try the steak... More

I had a really nice pint of Charles Wells Eagle IPA two weeks ago in a pub in Salford village in Beds. Last night I had the same beer at the Embankmen Hotel and it was sour. This establishment is not the only offender.(The staff were efficient on what was a busy Saturday night). .It is getting to the stage... More

The best time to go to the Embankment Hotel is on a summer after one or early evening. I have spent a few afternoons this summer sitting outside , the tables and chairs are comfortable and there are good sun canopies. The service is good and we have enjoyed a glass of win end a sharing platter of bread, vegetable... More

We have just stayed here during the busiest weekend because it was the Bedford river festival which only happens every 2 years. The hotel was very very busy however the staff were great nothing was a problem. The room absolutely immaculate. Very enjoyable stay and for future trips will definitely stay again.
