The room was to the high standard expelted of Premier Inn. The evening meal and breakfast were good. It is advisable to book a table for the evening meal because the restaurant (Beefeater) is popular with locals.

This is a Premier Inn in a stunning location and with an exceptional team of staff. The staff are friendly efficient and could be help up as an example to staff teams in other Premier Inns. That said, the hotel itself is a little shabby and could do with a bit of an upgrade, but that would still not put...

Use this Premier Inn regualarly when visiting relatives. The rooms usually are very good but we always avoid room 26 as this is not. The restaurant attached is excellent both for breakfast and for main meal especially steaks

The location was fantastic, the area very quite. The rooms spotless and comfy, and very quite, we were at the back. The staff very helpful, and I would have no hesitation to return to the Premier Inn Bedford.

Excellent room and the staff are excellent. Easy to find even in thick fog. Very well located in Bedford with easy access to town. The breakfast was outstanding and really good value as kids eat for free with a paying adult.

Very comfortable for the cost. I wanted a hotel close to the family that i was spending New Year's Eve with so that I could get back within 5 minutes. The Priory fitted he bill perfectly and I would be happy to use it again

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Moor up for the night at Premier Inn Bedford (Priory Marina) and you'll be sure of a great night's sleep. Located right next to the marina and lake in the tranquil Priory Country Park, yet within a 5-minute drive of Bedford town centre, you'll have a whole fleet of entertainment options within easy reach. Take the inside track at Bedford International Athletic Stadium. Hit the big sales at Milton Keynes' shopping malls. Plot a course to London on the fast train to St Pancras. Then drop into our tasty restaurant with attractive alfresco dining area, and drift off in an extra-comfy bed. Directions: From M1 J13 follow the A421, then join the A6. Leave the A6 following signs for the A428 Cambridge. After crossing the River Ouse, turn right at the next roundabout onto Barkers Lane. Follow signs for the Priory Country Park. Hotel is next to the Priory Marina Beefeater.
