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.

This is a difficult review to write as I want to give it 5 stars because of the friendly, helpful staff and the beautiful Grade 1 listed building, as well as the delicious cream tea available in the afternoons (separately paid for), and the excellent breakfast of both hot and cold food and good coffee. But we stayed when the... More

A very enjoyable 5 day stay at this friendly hotel. Parking was particularly easy.. Breakfast was particularly good and could be varied. Good to see there was a lift available for those guests who were disabled.

Stayed for one night. Nice rooms, beautiful surroundings with great location to Dartmoor. This hotel is dog friendly and they gave our two a lovely welcome. We found that this place has the nicest staff, so helpful and genuinely friendly. The food is truly wonderful. We have stayed before and the food was great, but this time we were astonished... More

In centre of town so in a great location, excellent staff who were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again, it was very hot and a bit hot at night... More

We only stayed here for one night and were disappointed that it wasn't longer. We were doing a mini tour of the area and hadn't booked anywhere but spotted the Bedford as we drove by and thought it looked like our kind of place. How right we were. The welcome was warm and friendly and we asked for a room... More
