Having stayed before you kind of know what to expect, so to get an upgrade on checking in was unexpected. Staying in this place is like putting on your old, beaten up slippers, comfortable, relaxing and cosseting. Just the right style of service, lots of lounging around areas, great food and right in the town for great shopping. And it's... More

You have to agree this hotel looks great from the outside and when you are inside the view out is as good looking over the church and town hall. We enjoyed our stay here - the hotel is old and comfy. Our room was ok, not plush or particularly nicely furnished - I was probably expecting a bit more to... More

The Bedford Hotel is a traditional style hotel well situated in the centre of town. This was our third visit to this hotel over the past two years. The staff have always been very helpful and friendly. The breakfast is cooked and served hot at the table, not just self service. Dinner in the evening was always very good with... More

We had a lovely stay at the Bedford Hotel. The staff was the most accommodating and attentive I have ever seen anywhere in the UK. Our rooms were very nice and clean. Also, the wifi was so easy to connect to and very reliable. The only inconvenience was having to lug our very heavy luggage up the stairs. Other than... More

Thank you for your comments we are so pleased you had a lovely stay and enjoyed the atmosphere. Due to the hotel being a grade 1 listed building our mobility lift can only go as far as the reception floor level from the car park. However, if it helps for next time we do have ground floor rooms which can... More
