we ate there for Sunday lunch, the starter platter to share was very good, and the roasts fantastic. Nice location, service good although a little slow, but when you're with friends you don't want to be rushed anyway. Lovely place will go again.

The Embankment is a lovely hotel both from the outside and inside and is in a premier position on the river bank only five minutes walk from the town centre. We stayed for three nights just before the river festival and booked direct with the hotel who helped us select our room. We had room 101 on the first floor... More

This hotel is situated in one of the best sites in Bedford namely the river Ouse Embankment ; this starts you off in a good mood.Then there is the food , I loved it the food is great and the atmosphere in the restaurant is friendly. A two course meal for £12.95 you can't go wrong .

The room was lovely. The bathroom and water pressure was well equipped. The wifi was strong. The curtains kept the sun out and there are so many great places to run nearby! Loved it! Make sure you get breakfast which was great. My only issue was how long it took to get our coffee...we were done eating by the time... More

An excellent 2-night stay for the Bedford Regatta. Perfect location, friendly and efficient staff; the terrace overlooking the river is ideal for a (or more) relaxing evening drink - and for breakfast on a sunny morning. An older-style hotel but represents good value for money; the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom modern and spotless. I will definitely stay again.

Took my girlfriend here for our anniversary, and can't fault the place. The room was perfect, great views of the river and very light and airy. For a Saturday night we were concerned about the noise, but it was no issue whatsoever, even at the front of the building. Dinner was great, the steaks are sublime and so well cooked.... More
