The Bedford Hotel is situated in a great position just off the central square in Tavistock. It has a grand and imposing façade and its own car park at the side. In peak times it is probably wise to ask reception to book a space as it is not that large. My room was comfortable and fully equipped and the... More

My husband and I recently spent three days at The Bedford. First and foremost I must say that we would definitely make a return visit. The staff were exceptional, both in the restaurant and at the reception desk and were the stand-out factor during our stay. Also, the food was first class both at breakfast and for dinner. We enjoyed... More

The Bedford Hotel is quite old fashioned, could do with a little updating of the furnishings in the bedroom, but it makes up for this in the warmth of the welcome and friendliness and good service from all the staff. Lovely old feeling to this hotel which is well known in most of Devon. Great place to meet friends for... More

My friend and I recently enjoyed a splendid cream tea at The Bedford. The quality (and size!) of the food was wonderful - and the staff's service was excellent. They topped up our tea, gave us doggy bags for our leftovers and were generally lovely. The gluten-free option seemed to be even more generous than the regular menu - a... More

Stayed in room 10 which was a four poster room but the furniture had seen better days. Dressing table chair was very dusty and needed a good clean. Saying that though the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a jacuzzi bath. We had taken our two dogs and they were made to feel very welcome with a dog... More

My friend and I enjoyed a fantastic afternoon tea at the bedford. Being gluten-free I emailed ahead and booked us in, we were then running late so I called to shift the reservation. When we arrived (still late) we were welcomed with a friendly smile and shown to our reserved table by the window in the lounge bar. The tea... More

We were guests at a wedding in the Tavistock Town Hall, so as travellers from out of town we decided to book rooms at the Bedford Hotel. We had rooms 18 and 22. Room 22 was a good size, nice bathroom and a very comfortable bed, and there was little they to fault it - although if picky the TV... More

We booked in at The Bedford Hotel as part of an 8 person group. We were in Dartmoor to celebrate our sister's hen weekend - not your traditional 'clubbing' type of people, we wanted to explore the great outdoors and just relax together in a comfortable environment. Before we arrived we received a great service from the staff - booking... More

We stayed recently for 4 nights with our small dog. Dogs are very welcome all around the hotel with the exception of the restaurant. A very small charge was made for the dog & bowl, toys & biscuits were provided for him. A very relaxing comfortable stay. Clean room with large comfortable bed, up to date bathroom with a great...

As an overview - this is not a comment on the hotel itself but a story on customer service and customer loyalty. I was due to travel and stay at the Bedford hotel Saturday 30th August but on the Friday evening someone had stolen my wallet!! This left me in a position where I had to cancel cards and had... More
