My friend and I recently enjoyed a splendid cream tea at The Bedford. The quality (and size!) of the food was wonderful - and the staff's service was excellent. They topped up our tea, gave us doggy bags for our leftovers and were generally lovely. The gluten-free option seemed to be even more generous than the regular menu - a... More

Stayed in room 10 which was a four poster room but the furniture had seen better days. Dressing table chair was very dusty and needed a good clean. Saying that though the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a jacuzzi bath. We had taken our two dogs and they were made to feel very welcome with a dog... More

My friend and I enjoyed a fantastic afternoon tea at the bedford. Being gluten-free I emailed ahead and booked us in, we were then running late so I called to shift the reservation. When we arrived (still late) we were welcomed with a friendly smile and shown to our reserved table by the window in the lounge bar. The tea... More

We were guests at a wedding in the Tavistock Town Hall, so as travellers from out of town we decided to book rooms at the Bedford Hotel. We had rooms 18 and 22. Room 22 was a good size, nice bathroom and a very comfortable bed, and there was little they to fault it - although if picky the TV... More

We booked in at The Bedford Hotel as part of an 8 person group. We were in Dartmoor to celebrate our sister's hen weekend - not your traditional 'clubbing' type of people, we wanted to explore the great outdoors and just relax together in a comfortable environment. Before we arrived we received a great service from the staff - booking... More

We stayed recently for 4 nights with our small dog. Dogs are very welcome all around the hotel with the exception of the restaurant. A very small charge was made for the dog & bowl, toys & biscuits were provided for him. A very relaxing comfortable stay. Clean room with large comfortable bed, up to date bathroom with a great...

As an overview - this is not a comment on the hotel itself but a story on customer service and customer loyalty. I was due to travel and stay at the Bedford hotel Saturday 30th August but on the Friday evening someone had stolen my wallet!! This left me in a position where I had to cancel cards and had... More

My family and I stayed in this hotel and it was very good. There is central parking at the rear with a back entrance (unfortunately no lift - the place IS old). The rooms were plush, clean and light. I was in a room with 3 beds and the shower was marvellous! Breakfasts were very good, and despite some of... More

A lovely mix of faded charm, wonky floors, attentive staff but with large comfortable beds and modern bathrooms. It was a pleasure to relax in the comfortable bar area overlooking the main square of Tavistock with its dark stone buildings and pannier market. Snacks and more substantial meals were available and these were served by friendly and helpful staff. Reception... More

Location was excellent, right near main square yet still quiet. Ample parking. Staff at front desk were helpful and friendly. Room had nicely renovated bathroom and had been updated but not to point of being featureless. We had a lovely cream tea here with enormous scones and ample clotted cream. Staff provided it on a complementary basis as their sister... More
