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. After dinner, we asked for Irish Coffee's which came as lattes with no alcohol or cream but the staff admitted they had googled how to make them,... More

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

Genuinely the nicest hotel we have stayed in. Very unique style and feel in both the room and the bar/restaurant area and delicious food! Definite wow factor when entering our room. Completely different to your run of the mill hotel chains. Beautiful outside area too! And to top it off staff have been very friendly and gone above and beyond... More

For our daughters wedding being held within walking distance of d'Parys we took all the rooms and very glad we did. Well priced large quirky rooms, dinner and breakfast very good, and the staff couldn't have done more for us. After the wedding we returned to the hotel around 11pm and the bar stayed open so we could continue the... More

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..

I remember going to bed, it must have been around 11pm and saying to the mrs, what a marvelous idea this was in terms of staying at The De Parys this particular night. We had been to see Sir Tom Jones, not a stone’s throw from the hotel and thought it a great idea to stay over that evening. It... More

Hi Mr Taylor, My apologies in the first instant for the night of poor sleep you experienced with us on the Sunday night of Proms in the Park. If I may address the issues you highlighted...

I have stayed at this hotel several times and we always come away having had a great time. The rooms are beautiful and bespoke. You get the feel of extravagant, non-chain, boutique! The food is usually great but having eaten here more than I have stayed, this is the one variable that seems to need more attention if they really... More

Stayed over night at hotel d'parys for my husbands birthday. Hotel is lovely, the rooms are very different from standard rooms, all open plan, bath in the middle of the room and large four posted bed. Had lunch there which was very nice. Evening menu very limited, however my fillet steak was the best I've ever had. Nice outdoor area,... 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
