I stayed here for one night with my family while visiting Woburn Safari Park which was about a 15 minute drive away. We had a family room which was perfectly adequate for our needs. The entire Hotel was absolutely spotless and we were very impressed with the cleanliness throughout. The staff couldn't be more helpful and were incredibly polite, friendly... More

I was given a room downstairs and not that far from reception - normally a no for me due to noise but this was fine. Room was quiet. Believe they are carrying out some refurbishment to the hotel - my room must have been done as it was very fresh and everything worked fine. Didn't affect my stay at all... More

Me and my partner have stayed here several times and we love it! The staff are very friendly, the food is good worth getting out of bed for the breakfast. Would highly recommend. Not very far from Milton Keynes. Rooms are always clean and beds very comfortable. Will be going again soon I'm sure.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Bedford with family on Fri 15th and Sat 16th July. We had 3 rooms and each room was clean and comfortable with air conditioning that was refreshing in the warm weather.

Convenient location, good parking, friendly staff, quiet, clean, free & decent WiFi. You get a limited menu (as with nearly all HI Express), but it was nicely cooked; breakfast choice is a bit limited, but a step up from purely continental (although that's all I ever have anyway).

Everything was as expected of a Holiday Inn Express, although I thought the dinner menu was a little expensive. Also, we were in a room that had an adjoining door, which I thought wouldn’t matter as it was just for one night but I could hear every word said on the TV from the room next door. The staff were...
