We have stayed at the Bedford many times before, and have always recommended it to others, particularly because of the quality of the food. Unfortunately, this stay proved that all good things will eventually come to an end. The food has changed because so has the chef. The menu is 'weird' and does not have that appeal to suit all....

The room was very comfortable, dated but very comfortable. The food was very well presented, cooked and tasty, with a first class service. The staff could not do enough for us and always with a smile. This is now our favourite hotel set in a lovely historic location. We will be back.. often!

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
