We have stayed at The Bedford Hotel a couple of times. Neither of the rooms really stood out, and could do with some TLC. We did have lovely dinner and they serve a good breakfast so if you are going for food this would be a 4.5 star review.

What a lovely welcome when we arrived and were shown to our delightful room. We were early but were able to leave the car and baggage and go for a walk until the room was ready. Nothing is too much trouble and all of the staff are very friendly, especially so the blonde lady on reception. Our room had recently... More

We were on a £99 B&B booking and were happy with our room (17) the staff (young and friendly) and decided to have tea in the bustling bar area before heading out to an event at the nearby Wharf centre. Food was lovely - as was breakfast the next morning. What a pleasant surprise - and we will probably go... More

Lovely hotel that is very friendly and relaxed. I booked a single room as I was on a business trip and got a complimentary upgrade to a double which was lovely. Breakfast was lovely and fresh. Definitely will be back. Its the third or fourth time I have used the hotel and will continue as I know every time I... More

The Bedford has been an old favourite of ours for years so how lovely and refreshing to do a review, I shall enjoy this ! It is a beautiful building inside and out with such character, charm and warmth. Prominent location in The Square and easily found. We have always found the standards very high, extremely efficient and friendly staff.... More

I booked the one night package with a 3 course meal, bottle of wine and a box of chocolates with breakfast all for £130! No hidden costs and considering we could take our dog with us was even more convenient. I've never stayed in a dog friendly hotel before and was worried you could tell dogs were there If you...

We hadn't been to the Bedford for a year and on going back we wondered why we left it so long. The hotel has a welcome feel, the room we had was comfortable with lovely bedding. We attended the Murder mystery evening which was great fun. The food served was absolutely delicious as was breakfast, the staff are always friendly... More

A pleasant hotel in the centre of Tavistock, with good parking. I had booked the Murder Mystery Dinner. The meal was very average and I am not a great fan of cauliflower soup of shredded lamb. There was no vegetarian option on the menu or a chance to use an al carte menu, which we would have done. The only... More

Staff a little disorganised when the restaurant was packed but all remained extremely pleasant which was a credit to them all. It was obviously a fault at management... More

I had a lovely weekend , comfortable room,warm and cosy. One afternoon sat by the fire in a lounge just chatting to my cousin. I only had breakfast there as I was visiting family, but it was excellent, prompt and friendly service. On my last morning, leaving before breakfast was served, was presented with a picnic to eat on my... More
