We attended a funeral function on a wet weekday lunchtime. The function room was light and modern in the heart of this historic hotel, with one glass wall and hanging art works - giving a large and pleasant venue. Service of wine, tea and coffee, and excellent buffet was efficient but discreet - exactly as required on such an occasion,... More

Stayed here for one night in room 24 and on arrival looks appealing. Staff very friendly and courteous. Rooms are basic and clean with everything you need, tea, coffee, comfy bed and stuff for washing. I would say the toilet seat is a bit horrible as it is wood and seems unhygienic. Drink choice is good - i can particularly... More

My daughter chose The Bedford hotel for her wedding reception. throughout the planning we were well looked after by Robyn the event organiser. We chose the Bedford as we had friends and family attending from all over the country and required somewhere with rooms to stay and also somewhere that would accommodate 90 plus guests for a sit down meal...

Excellent service, receptionist offered dietary requirements on the phone and even though it was late in the day to book managed to organise my afternoon tea. The table was reserved for us, and brought through very quickly, well, what can I say about the food !!!!, great, I had the same sandwiches as my guest ( but with gluten free... More

I received a warm and friendly welcome when I checked in and the reception staff were very helpful even taking my bags to my bedroom. The hotel is a busy market town hotel and it's obvious local residents use the hotel during the day. Food in the restaurant was good. I'm not sure the type of music being played in... More

I stayed at this hotel on a business trip and took my son along for the company between meetings etc. I wasnt expecting too much given the hotel's 3* rating and I have to say I was impressed! The building itself is stunning and the gardens to the rear are just bliss to sit in on a summers day. The... More

Decided to splash out and stay here, as I've a little baby and wanted to be comfortable. It was a bad idea. The hotel is dated, and unwelcoming; the food is ok at best, and the service was average. The bedding seemed to have plastic sheeting beneath it, so I slept in a sweaty feverish state (as did my other... More

Organized trip for 16 golfers. Robynne, the event co-ordinator, was extremely helpfull and the food, dining facilility and rooms where all of a high standard with friendly and helpfull staff. I would suggest that a wider range of tie-ups were organized with other courses, particularly that allow buggies for those that need them.
