It's not easy to promise a magical occasion with festive spirit, superb cuisine, cocktails and canapés, complete with a homely feel in elegant surroundings. That is exactly what we received by visiting the Bedford hotel in Tavistock this Christmas. The only thing missing from the above description, is a mention of the staff, who worked very hard and were exceptionally... More

Over the years its become the focal point of our trips away, offering a dependable and charming old world feel that always reminds me of happy days... More

We were delighted to see 2 individually wrapped up and named gifts for... More

We recently stayed for a night in this old Hotel. It clearly needed some updating. There was only one lift located in a small modern extension and which led to the Hotel car park. We noted that there were a substantial number of elderly residents, who clearly found it very difficult to negotiate the numerous staircases and landings. Our room... More
