This was the 2nd visit here over a couple of years and I have to say that it is one of my favourite Premier Inns. The location is on the edge of a country park and is very good for walks around the lake etc. The staff were excellent - really friendly and very helpful, and although it was very...

We stayed at this hotel using it as a base for a golf break. The price (midweek) of the room was reasonable and the beds lived up to the Premier Inn guarantee of a good nights sleep. Room was clean and the maid service was very good. Reception staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. We upgraded to...

Stayed for one night. First class reception staff. There was quite a lot of noise coming from the room above us and the receptionist dealt with it immediately and we heard nothing more. Had a really good nights sleep. Would stay again.

This is your standard premier inn. As such you get a nice comfy bed along with a great shower. You get what you pay for and nothing is top of the range luxury however saying that everything is more than nice enough for it to be a pleasant stay. That gives this an edge is the beautiful nature reserve just...

I spent a night here on a business trip, it was a beautiful evening and a walk around the lake was a must do, the receptionist said it was approx 1 mile round, off I went, on my return I notice a lot of commercial vans parked in the main car park, around 5 of them parked near my room...

I stayed here last minute with children. It's well located next to the waterpark, and there is ample parking. However, the building itself just isn't up to it. Floors are incredibly noisy and you can hear so much around you. While the double bed is the so-called "hypnos", the two single beds certainly weren't! they were lumpy and uncomfortable. For...

I had to stay near the Bedford tribunal for about 3 weeks and decided on Premier Inn because of the great beds, proximity to town centre and quiet location. Good decision. Ticked every box. The room was very spacious, thankfully. Can you imagine sitting in a pokey little room for 3 weeks? The staff were all fantastic, and believe me...

The Premier Inn is in a lovely situation beside the Priory Country Park. The centre of Bedford is 5-10 minutes by car and 30 minutes by foot along the River Ouse. The staff we met were friendly and helpful. Our room was fine though fairly basic. It would have been good to have a couple of comfortable armchairs as there...

Nice location. Well worth getting there early as it is a lovely setting and there is a nice walk around the lake. Nice staff, pleasant clean room and good wholesome food at the Beefeater next door. Breakfast had so much choice.

Stayed with a friend 1 night to attend a birthday party. Nice comfortable night's sleep and great location. Breakfast is excellent and cooked to order, but expect to wait some time for this at busy times like 10AM Sun! Twin rooms in fact have a double bed plus a lower-set adult single, but the mattress was of similar quality to...

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.
