Such an elegant hotel in a beautiful town and a wonderful to step back into an age of glory. The high ceilings, the furniture, the oils and watercolours. Wonderfully comfortable furniture. Cheerful and helpful staff who all paid attention. Had lunch in the restaurant and the linen was clean and crisp, the food delicious. An excellent few hours for a... More

Superb food, attentive staff. The Bedford Hotel and its friendly staff made my Mother's birthday lunch for 20 people, a joy. Thank you each and everyone who helped make her day very special. The Portrait Room which we had to ourselves looked stunning. I would recommend the Bedford highly.

Visited with my 83 year old father. We had a comfortable stay in the lovely old hotel well located in the centre of Tavistock which is a charming old market town. Rooms were comfortable- and my only concern was the access to a room with a bath only for an older person- we were supplied with a non slip bath... More

It's a while since we stayed at the Bedford, and it was lovely to return, this time for a few days with a girlfriend while my husband was away. Since we were here last time, there is a much more convenient entry from the car park, with a lift for disabled as well as stairs. It's been nicely done. We... More

Stopped overnight on business because I wanted to be near Dartmoor. The Bedford didn't disappoint in any way. Comfy, welcoming, good food, four poster bed in a large room. Even though there was a function on, service was great and the staff were attentive.

Every time we go jhere, we sit in the lounge and have coffee, however yesterday we decided to have lunch in the bar. There were a couple of tables free so that was good, but the place gives an impressions of being very busy. Nice atmosphere, nice staff, quite a few dogs, but not a problem. The service was excellent,... More

Called here today for lunch to find that they had a big function booked. However we were very well received and given excellent service. The food was second to none and the staff extremely kind and friendly. Highly recommended!

This hotel came highly recommended from experienced hotel users, and I can now understand why having stayed on this leisure break. It wouldn't be possible to receive a more friendly and accommodating welcome on arrival. The Manager took extra care to ensure our bedroom was suitable and satisfactory, the restaurant food was good for the Sunday lunch, with attentive, caring... More

Tavistock is a nice Devon market town to visit and The Bedford is right in its centre with good parking. Dartmoor is also on the doorstep. Built on the site of a Benedictine Abbey, it was owned by the Duke of Bedford (hence the name) and converted to a 'grand' hotel in early Victorian times. Its still got the grandeur,... More
