Spotlessly clean bedroom, bathroom and public rooms. Really good food with a varied menu. Breakfast food cooked to order and served to your table nice and hot. A good hotel at a reasonable price. The car park is not very big but it is easy to park outside the hotel.

Our 6th visit was, as always, very enjoyable. The refurbished rooms are beautiful and very spacious. Excellent food with a good choice and nothing is too much trouble. We have booked again for January 2017. Looking forward to it!

Today we had lunch with our friends at The Bedford. We had heard of its good reputation but it was a let down. It was so cold and we had to sit eating our lunch in our top coats not really conducive to a good atmosphere, the pianist was playing music in the entrance which sounded beautiful on entry but...

Having just returned from a quick break I will respond to your review. The staff assure me everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals the day of your visit, no complaints whatsoever and I am pleased to hear you said the food was good. The sea bass was the usual portion size, we certainly do not serve small portions here, but it... More

Had a fantastic New Year break at the Bedford. Every member of the staff are courteous, friendly and efficient and go out of their way to make sure everything runs smoothly. The Hotel is spotlessly clean and every morsel of food is enjoyable both in the Hotel and the Coffee Shop. Excellent entertainment and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

I visited the Bedford for the first time a week ago for a whist week break, and although I had to wait for my room to be prepared (I arrived at 12:00 o'clock) I was shown to a pleasant lounge and provided with leaflets on the area while I waited. My room was perfectly adequate for one, it would have... More

Thank you Mike A for your detailed report from your recent whist break, we are delighted everything apart from the creaky floorboard was to your liking. The coffee shop is always available for use if arriving before your room is ready, which is normally around 2 p.m. We very much look forward to seeing you again in the New year. More

Only ever been on a Sunday, traditional meals as you would expect. Had great meals and good meals, they can vary. I usually have the vegetarian option which is often quirky and unusual so that's nice. Wouldn't turn away from going but more for the traditional lunch goers.
