The service we received today was awful. After being sat for 30 min we were told our order had been mixed up, 10 minutes later realised our first course hadn't'been put through, then when our second course came out not even what we had ordered. This took an hour to get our first course. After complaining to the manager he...

We stayed here for one night as a B and B Hotel is part of a pub/restaurant. Bedroom was at back of hotel and was quiet, bath in the room which was unusual. Good quality and recently refurbished room. Breakfast was a la carte and tasty with excellent cappuccinos, all served by Tony who can seem grumpy yet warmed up...

The hotel was easy to find and is in a pleasant area where it is quiet and easy to park. The bar and restaurant look fantastic and have a warm and charming atmosphere. Our room was very nice. The window had been left wide open and the heating turn off though, so it was incredibly cold when we arrived. The...

We've stayed in this hotel twice now. It's definitely my preferred place to stay in Bedford. It's a refurbished hotel, first built in Bedford's Victorian days. Now the ground floor is all open plan, but cunningly divided up into different areas so that it combines a sense of space with a sense of intimacy and charm. The bedrooms are similarly...

We held our wedding reception at the d'Parys and couldn't have chosen a better venue. Their Library room provided the perfect setting, the food was excellent and the staff were friendly and so helpful. Then after a lovely evening, the bedroom was a touch of luxury and bed was super comfortable. Will be visiting again for dinner!

We booked one night for a special occasion. Upon arrival, it seemed strange that there wasn't a hotel reception area, but I asked in the bar and was told that 'this is it!' Then we were kept waiting while bar staff hunted for our reservation sheet, then a pen, which my partner eventually supplied from the car, and then they...

We stayed here in July. The decor of the hotel is beautiful upmarket with a homely feel. Our room had a double bed, shower and a roll top bath at the foot of the bed. The staff were really friendly and we dinned in the restaurant in the evening. The food was fantastic and the cocktails yummy! Breakfast was great...

The service was great as normal, except until we returned to our room to find water leaking through the ceiling, there is no real night staff, so if there is an emergency I'm not sure what you would do, if there are staff it wasn't made clear. Once I explained there was water leaking through the light fitting, it was...

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
