Once again staying at The Bedford Hotel provided a convenient and comfortable base from which to visit family. As always the food was excellent and despite the hotel being very busy we were well looked after.

We booked 19 rooms to host a meeting and social event in Tavistock. The hotel gave us really good support with organising the event and everything happened exactly as we had planned with them, almost to the minute. The food was superb and all our guests enjoyed their stay with many sending us comments on how welcome they had ben... More

We had a Sunday lunch with a party of 50+, and have to say that the service was poor. I don't think they had enough staff on, as apart from the usual Sunday lunch guests, ourselves and another party, they just didn't seem to cope very well. We sat down for lunch at 1pm, the first course was served at... More

The bedford is in a great location and the staff are very friendly and efficient. Great ambience and nice food. Would highly recommend. Nice lounge to sit and enjoy beer at the end of a day sightseeing.

A enabled room on the ground floor was issued (not requested), window was high and if you could stretch to see standing up - it was over the car park. Noisy due to people up and down stairs right outside our door and from floor above noises heard. The room was clean and comfortable although limited in room- probably to... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your one night stay. It is disappointing to read that you did not have a restful stay and you were allocated our access friendly room on this occasion. This room is usually requested by regular guests due to it's easy access and the wet room facility that it offers. I apologise that... More

We were in Tavistock for a wedding and had been transferred to the Bedford Hotel as our booking elsewhere was cancelled. We found the staff very friendly. There was great team work and they always had a smile to greet you. The food was fabulous and a bit different, a really good experience. The room, a superior, was by the... More

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
