We had a lovely weekend break at the Bedford Hotel. All the staff went the extra mile to welcome us and our 2 dogs. Breakfast and dinner were tasty and very efficiently served; our Bedrooms comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location on the seafront was excellent for our long walks on the coastal path.

This was our second time at the Bedford. Once again the room was very comfortable with a full sea view and balcony. The shower was wonderful, very powerful. Food was excellent as always. All staff very friendly especially Susan and Debbie. I also had a birthday card placed on the breakfast table which was such a lovely thoughtful thing to... More

My wife and I require more help than some couples and we were made most welcome from the moment we arrived. The staff in every area of the hotel were professional in the extreme, but helpful and friendly and never without a smile. We had a thoroughly pleasant few days and hope to visit again later in the year -... More

This is a delightful hotel, combining the best of customer care with spacious rooms which are well decorated. The reception staff were very welcoming and our dog was greeted with affection. He was allowed to stay in our room and we were able to eat in a designated room where breakfast was served and the dog was allowed in too.... More

i was looking for somewhere to take my husband for a surprise birthday break and after doing some research decided to phone the Bedford direct. I knew from the minute Debbie answered the phone I had made the right choice. We had a superior sea view room with balcony and it was gorgeous. Large and airey with a beautifully refurbished...

I stayed here for one night as I was working away from home. Really, really nice I would recommend and I would stay again. A very nice room for a single room which in my experience can be not so nice. Once booked (I booked with Expedia) I was sent an e-mail from the hotel offering a free bottle of... More

We stayed for a couple of days in order to attend a wedding and were very comfortable. The staff were friendly but not intrusive. The room was clean and well equipped. The breakfasts were well-cooked and nicely presented.

A lovely Georgian hotel on the seafront. Faultless service, clean, airy and comfortable. Really could not fault this hotel. The restaurant is first class and breakfast cooked to order. My daughter really enjoyed the fish options and I had traditional British breakfast which was very good. Our room was spacious and clean. The partial sea view was a misnomer as... More
