I booked the one night package with a 3 course meal, bottle of wine and a box of chocolates with breakfast all for £130! No hidden costs and considering we could take our dog with us was even more convenient. I've never stayed in a dog friendly hotel before and was worried you could tell dogs were there If you...

We hadn't been to the Bedford for a year and on going back we wondered why we left it so long. The hotel has a welcome feel, the room we had was comfortable with lovely bedding. We attended the Murder mystery evening which was great fun. The food served was absolutely delicious as was breakfast, the staff are always friendly... More

A pleasant hotel in the centre of Tavistock, with good parking. I had booked the Murder Mystery Dinner. The meal was very average and I am not a great fan of cauliflower soup of shredded lamb. There was no vegetarian option on the menu or a chance to use an al carte menu, which we would have done. The only... More

Friendly staff. We had a room to share with our Labrador when arriving in room he had a lovely gift of bowl, toy, chews and treats first hotel to give us those! Staff a little disorganised when the restaurant was packed but all remained extremely pleasant which was a credit to them all. It was obviously a fault at management... More

I had a lovely weekend , comfortable room,warm and cosy. One afternoon sat by the fire in a lounge just chatting to my cousin. I only had breakfast there as I was visiting family, but it was excellent, prompt and friendly service. On my last morning, leaving before breakfast was served, was presented with a picnic to eat on my... More

We stayed at the Bedford Hotel on business for one night. What an absolutely delightful hotel! Yes, there are a few areas that are tired and a bit dog eared, but built in 1820, you kinda make a few allowances. The atmosphere and character of this hotel more than makes up for a few chips of paint and cracks in... More

My Wife and I stayed at the Bedford Hotel for two nights over a week end in room 23. I booked the room online through Booking.com, prior I may add to a quick look at the reviews of the hotel on tripadvisor. Why did I book a room at the Hotel? simple answer was location and no other reason, the... More

Just stayed here for the weekend, together with our dog. The first room was above the bar and facing the street and too noisy for us but we were easily moved to a room across the corridor. The room was very warm and cosy and we even had a bowl and treats for our dog. Nice little secure garden at... More

Had a lovely stay at the bedford hotel. The staff welcomed us very warmly and upgraded our room free of charge to a beautiful four poster room. On entering our room I was greeted by beautiful flowers,champagne and a card. It was my birthday and the staff had gone the extra mile to organise this from the request of my... More

It's not easy to promise a magical occasion with festive spirit, superb cuisine, cocktails and canapés, complete with a homely feel in elegant surroundings. That is exactly what we received by visiting the Bedford hotel in Tavistock this Christmas. The only thing missing from the above description, is a mention of the staff, who worked very hard and were exceptionally... More
