We finally returned to The Bedford after many years, there have been significant improvements. Like it's sister hotel the Two Bridges it is individual, welcoming and comfortable. I always recommend booking direct as you can speak to a person who in our case recommended room 21 which was spacious and overlooks the church. Although it was a Saturday & we... More

Came here most recently for a dinner lecture as part of Tavistock heritage festival. The Gallery room is perfect for that kind of thing and the Bedford always puts on a very good set meal for such events at a keen price. Their a la carte is far superior, as you'd expect, but the hotel is a safe choice if... More

Our room was spacious and well furnished. The en suite was also spacious, clean, brilliant shower etc. however, the bath was very deep and could have done with... More

Favourite watering hole in Tavistock. Anything from a cup of tea to a full blown meal or even a function. Been to all of these. Very enjoyable. Service great and food and drink the same. Recent refurb at back of hotel works.

The Bedford is a historic hotel which has been upgraded nicely and offers good accommodations in central Tavistock. The staff is very friendly, the breakfast excellent, and the location is good for exploring Tavistock and Dartmoor.

Really nice hotel in an excellent location for exploring Tavistock. There is easy access from the car park to the inside of the hotel. The food is amazing - far better than I expected. It's well worth eating dinner in rather than going elsewhere. The staff are all incredibly polite and attentive, I wish all hotels were this good!

Charming hotel in a great central location in pretty Tavistock. So nice to find a dog friendly hotel which also has beautifully finished bedrooms, comfortable lounge and dinning areas and first class food.
