I stayed at Tennyson house for a series of stays over 2 months and each time I got brilliant treatment as if I was a first time customer but they remembered me, always put me in the same room which was always clean and well presented.

Advice on where local facilities was given and an early breakfast was offered given that I had an early start. In the event not needed. Breakfast was excellent. I stayed two nights. I thought it was excellent value and... More

My partner and I visited the Twinwood festival and stayed the night at the Tennyson House Hotel, as it is close to the festivals location as well as Bedford city center. The hotel offers a comfortable accommodation with breakfast, both great for the price. Staff there were extremely helpful and they all tried to do everything in their power to... More

We visited Tennyson House Hotel this weekend and really enjoyed our stay. As we arrived a little late we stayed in the hotel and had a few drinks at the well stocked bar, then ordered from a local takeaway recommended by the owner. The room was very well decorated and the main thing for us was that it was clean.... More
