We went for long lovely Mothering Sunday Lunch a couple of weeks ago. The food was amazing, the staff caring and effiecent and helpful as always. Even thought they were really busy, nothing was too much bother. If you are looking for somewhere to go for a special relaxed meal give the Millhouse a call you will not be disappointed

We stayed in this hotel for a night over a weekend; there were only our group staying there I think (perhaps why we had such attentive service!). The staff were really fantastic; friendly and efficient. Particularly the guy working in the restaurant (young, tall, slim dark-haired guy?), he was informative, friendly and fun. The food was OK, it wasn't anything... More

We had high hopes for this hotel having read the reviews here. But we were so disappointed. We stayed for 2 nights. The 2 good things were that on our arrival the staff were very nice and friendly, and our room was a decent size one. But there were major issues with cleanliness. The carpets in the whole property are... More

I stayed here with German Work colleagues and the service was excellent. Food superb and Room was extremely comfortable. Lovely view from the Restaurant looking down over the old Mill Race. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Good Wifi and parking facilities. I would like to come back some time.

No atmosphere as we were at one point, the only ones in the restaurant, service good and attentive and a very friendly welcome.

My wife and I recently visited Sharnbrook, to meet up with friends and were extremely delighted with the warm welcome we received from the staff at the Millhouse Hotel. Karl and Olivia could not have done any more for us. As this was our first visit to Bedford we were a little unsure of what to expect. It will certainly... More

After an 8 month consultation about the logistics of my party, the day finally arrived. Karl was extremely patient and said yes to all my requests. The night ran so smoothly and he ensured the band I had booked were all set up and ready to go. I could not have wished for anything more, it was the best party... More

This is completely set up for functions like weddings and parties. As such ut works very well but I really wouldn't recommend it if you are not attending a party. Everything works buy overall feels a bit grubby and that is probably because of number of events. Very good price on the rooms so overall good vfm.

We recently celebrated our Ruby Wedding here for 50 guests, and thanks to Karl and Olivia it was an extremely special occasion. From first point of contact we were confident in their ability to deliver what we wanted and this was especially important for us as we do not live in England. The setting of the hotel is very beautiful... More

All guests can be assured of the best in choice and quality for food and wine when dining at the Millhouse. All of our dishes are created by our Chef, Matt Henman and his team, using fresh locally sourced seasonal ingredients wherever possible. He comments below on his culinary ethos: ‘I pride myself on using local produce and you can’t really get fresher or more local than Abrahams Farm Shop next door, free range venison from Harrold and P.E Burley & Son in Turvey providing our prime beef, pork, lamb, chicken and duck. I have kept prices down without compromising on quality of produce and the fresh flavours used in my dishes.’ Chef Matt. ... more   less
