Stayed for one night. Room a little dated and showing signs of needing a refurb (marks on the walls, grubby grouting in the bathroom). The room was the usual high standard of cleanliness, with plenty of room. The windows opened a reasonable amount too! Comfy beds, excellent shower. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast good. My top tip... More

I have been using Priory Marina on and off for the last 12 months whilst travelling with work. Over that time I have come to regard the place as my home away from home. It is always clean, comfortable and the staff are second to none. They are always polite and willing to help. The setting is superb too, just... More

Although this hotel is not in the mainsteam downtown area, it definitely has its perks. Located on a lake in a quiet section of Bedford, it is surrounded by wonderful pathways around the lake and tree-lined pathways leading into the downtown area within a 20 minute time-frame. Very nurturing, peaceful. You can ride bikes on the path and wheelchair friendly... More

This hotel is very close to a scenic lake.More importantly, the service is fantastic. Julie at reception always has a smile and is absolutely superb. Nothing is too much trouble for her. Lovely place and we are glad we stopped here.

An ok hotel, Premier Inn's usual safe format of simple comfort and cleanliness, but no air con. The staff (the only one we saw was the receptionist) was absolutely fine. Simple, safe choice of hotel, so fine.

We chose this hotel as it was very close to Bedford Athletics stadium. The staff were all very friendly, welcoming and helpful. There was no air conditioning in the rooms, but they had a large room fan to keep things comfortable. The restaurant next door was excellent value with the meal deal and my daughter loved the sausages at breakfast.... More

This place is in a great location, we were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We were very early (before 12) and were still permitted to check in. Rooms exactly as every other Premier, but that's clean, tidy, sufficiently equipped, and the receptionists were really friendly and helpful. I was really impressed with Bedford, and really impressed with this hotel... More

If you just need a room for the night then this is perfect. The beefeater next door is the restaurant effectively but at 11pm it closes even for residents. I would have given 4 stars but the WiFi wasn't working. It sounded like it had been off for some time so it is a good job I wasn't on a... More
