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!

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
