“Winter Tonic”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

Just had to squeeze a weekend away again at Bedford Lodge Hotel to set us up before Christmas and again, we enjoyed our stay. It is rare that I can go anywhere and not find something to complain about, but I really think this hotel ticks all the boxes. The staff make this hotel special without any fuss or fawning, they are friendly, obliging and they smile, for goodness sake do not let them go anywhere else, they are like hens teeth.
Newmarket Town may not be the shopping capital of the world, but if you are not too hooked on shopping, the Town has interesting small shops and a TK Max, M and S and a Waitrose.

Very much a 4 star. Nice size rooms, modern and up to date. Could start to use a bit of paint in our room but that is the only negative. Very professional service, great bar, nice breakfast. Very nice grounds. There was a wedding on and you hardly noticed it. Our room faced the stables so we saw horses in the morning. Very quite as well. The gym is the best gym we've been to in a hotel. The pool area was amazing. Worth it just for that. You can get great rates here. Perfect place to take the family for a night or two. Use the pool and enjoy. Only negative was the town. Not the best . I would still come back here for another visit.

Thank you very much for your comments, we are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We are embarking on a major bedroom refurbishment in January 2012, along with our Bar and Restaurant, so hopefully when you next stay you will notice some great changes. We are aware of the challenges facing the High Street, but are taking an active part in working to improve these.

Stayed here on race day so prices were high understandably. Whilst setting is nice, the hotel needs updating - the rooms in particular. Our room had an ugly vierw, an old fashioned TV and smelt of stale smoke. The coffee in the morning outside was nice however and the guests who had been to a wedding there seems to have enjoyed the hotel.

Thank you for your feedback. However it may be worth pointing out that since your stay ten months ago, we have installed a fantastic digital television system, with HD 32” televisions. This was done in March of this year. I do hope we can welcome you back, so you can see for yourself, the improvements that have been made. Regarding the views from your room, it is disappointing that you felt the view was not to your liking, 90% of our rooms either overlook the Godolphin racing stables or the Cumani stables, which are both very pleasant to look at, and the remaing 10% overlook our beautiful gardens at the front of ourhotel. These gardens were awarded first prize for the Hotels in Bloom in Newmarket. Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback, it really does help.

Stayed at the hotel for one night, we were allowed to book in early and found the staff helpful. The price for the room was a little high at £165 , the rooms are a nice size and very clean, the town is a short walk away but you would need a taxi to get to the horses.

On our way from South West Wales to a holiday in Norfolk we called in here to stay for the night. Nothing was booked and we took our chances - staff were friendly and helpful found us 2 rooms (I think we were lucky because there was no race meeting on). Rooms were clean, modern and very comfortable. We had a late supper in the bar which was excellent.

After a great breakfast in the morning we used the leisure facilities and left with a bid smile on our faces. We would really rate this hotel and would recommend it to any of our family and friends.
