Spent weekend in Bedford visiting family. Chose Embankment last year thougt I would try D'Parys. Quirky hotel badly let down by poor servive and no manager present. I may add I am not hard to please but if you pay £100 per night you expect more. On arriving I immediately had to pay asit was the hotels policy no offer... More

Rooms here are stylish and great. Its a converted home, but they have done a great job with individualization. Loo's a little odd, in a glass cubicle in the corner and the shower/bath in the open on the other side of the room, so if you require some privacy from your room mate you might struggle here. I felt however,... More

Our room was absolutely beautiful and very clean. The food was delicious with a varied menu and we found it to be reasonably priced. The outside area was lovely for sunny afternoon cocktails.

This place still just is missing the cherry on the top but I think it's personal preference that I don't much care for the bath in the room or the lack of toilet privacy but other than that, if you can accept these points, the place is just beautiful. The food was amazing (breakfast) and next time, I really want... More

For our daughters wedding being held within walking distance of d'Parys we took all the rooms and very glad we did.

Keep giving this place the benefit of the doubt and 'one more chance', but I receive terrible service every time I go. Icing on the cake was being brought our starters with our mains, then being told if we didn't want our starters we didn't have to have them. The clearly inexperienced waiter didn't seem to understand why I wouldn't... More

Excellent, only stayed one night, very surprised at quality of room, spotlessly clean, fluffy bath towels, very comfy bed and pillows! Breakfast, freshly cooked full English extremely tasty and set us up for the day. Would stay here again or even just eat here. Well worth a visit..

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
