We arrived here after a 24 hour flight from Sydney, was supposed to "just be a bed"! Gorgeous room, roll top bath, very lovely bed! And to top it all, fabulous breakfast and wonderful staff . Would recommend a visit - even to the restaurant - you won't be disappointed! Cannot believe how helpful the staff were !

We had a beautiful room with a roll top bath in it as requested.... The bedroom was gorgeous and perfect for a couples getaway from London! Very romantic but you would want to be very comfortable with your partner as the bath and shower were in the bedroom and the toilet had a glass door that you could see the... More

Hi Becca, Its great to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and the quirky decor of our rooms, the frosted glass doors in the rooms are always a talking point, which is never a bad thing in my opinion. We are working hard to always deliver the high standards in our restaurant that we ask of ourselves so that... More

This hotel has a fine bar and restaurant with lots of tables outside when the weather is warm enough. I think the restaurant manages to disappoint sometimes but I had a mighty fine sole there the other week. The rooms are very good with each having their own character in what used to be a large detached residential home. This... More

Hi Ian, Thank you for your review and kind words about us here @ d'Parys. We are on a residential street but we are also quite lucky in the fact that road is relatively quiet of an evening so there isn't alot of traffic noise.

Fabulous cooked breakfast..best I've had in ages. Service was very slow as only one person serving but it's a lovely place and we were quite happy to hang around a bit! Will be back as it's a very welcoming venue. Full English was £8.99 and worth it as it was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection.

I had heard about this hotel from a friend, and I wasn't disappointed when I visited. I have stayed a couple of times now and never been disappointed. Each room is individual - the earlier the book, the better chance of a bigger room. Every room we have stayed in has a separate bath in the room, and a big... More

This is really a restaurant with rooms not a hotel. You check in at the bar, there is not a lounge area only a very small bar with the rest of the area as a restaurant. The rooms are good with comfortable beds. quirky decor and you only have bare wooden floors so it can be noisy. We stayed Saturday... More

We stayed two nights over a weekend and feel full of praise for both the staff and the hotel in general. The building is beautiful and has been converted to a hotel / restaurant with real care and consideration. There is lots of lovely details, and having eaten in the restaurant on both nights, there are lots of quirky bits... More

We were 1 from 4 couples who stayed at d'Parys last weekend. We stayed there 2 years previously. That review praised the team for returning my wifes' handbag which we forgot, but raised issue which other reviews noted about how slow the service was. Unfortunately time has not healed this issue. When you order even something straightforward like a coffee... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to d'Parys - the home of premium d'rinking, d'ining, and d'reaming located in the heart of Bedford on De Parys Avenue. D'Parys is an all fresh food restaurant, a d'istinctive city bar, a coffee and tuck shop offering nostalgic sweets with handmade cakes and gelato with 14 d'reamy bedrooms. We celebrate Bedford's brewing, education and industrial heritage using exposed bricks and iron to create a unique and frankly rather random mix of Victorian style and contemporary design. We are casual not formal making d'Parys a great place to enjoy a Saturday night treat; a catch up with friends over a mid-week coffee; a place to bring the kids for homemade ice cream before a trip to Bedford Park; somewhere for meetings with business colleagues; or the first choice for the paper over a freshly cooked breakfast at the weekend after a relaxing overnight stay. ... more   less
