Very convenient pub with five B & B rooms. Needed to stay somewhere in central Bedford whilst attending family gathering. Very friendly owners. Rooms basic and very clean. Breakfast comprises cooked dish only (no cereals or juice). Private parking at back of pub - perfect.

Clean and comfortable rooms, with a lovely atmosphere. The landlord is very welcoming and breakfast times are a delight.
Good selection of wines and ales with an expanding menu to cover most tastes. Dog friendly and ideally placed for a walk down the Embankment in the evening.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are quieter, family room is definitely the best choice...

We plumped for the Castle Inn as it was central, seemed reasonably priced and had decent reviews on Trip Advisor. The rooms are nice enough (if a little bland) and it’s surprisingly quiet for its location. It’s not the Ritz but for a pub with rooms it’s great.

A very pleasant couple had just recently taken over the running of the Castle when we stayed and they told us they are going to upgrade the accommodation (decoration, linen etc) so the place is likely to get even better. With that in mind we shall definitely return next time we’re in Bedford.

Occupied two rooms over four nights in total. Rooms we used were clean and comfortable with new bathroom fittings, comfortable beds, tea and coffee, clock radio, cupboard space and a few toiletries/facecloth supplied. Clean towels every day. There are five rooms in total, three doubles (one on ground floor with wetroom), one twin and a family room. (We had a quick look around as the rooms are left open to air once people have checked out!) Pub staff were very helpful and were keen to ensure we had a good stay. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was solid English breakfast. We ate in the pub one night and the food seemed genuinely home-cooked, although pretty standard fair.

Only two small negatives - the bar area is tired and needs an update (new carpet etc) although this is not reflected in the condition of the accommodation behind, which has obviously been revamped in the last year or two. The other niggle - we stayed in a downstairs room and would have appreciated net curtains as well as proper curtains for a bit more privacy as we felt a bit 'on show' and needed to draw the curtains to dress.

Considering it's very central location (literally 5 mins walk to the main shopping/eating area) it was very quiet. For the cost, it was very good value, particularly when compared to our other friends who paid significantly more for not much extra in the Swan.

Room Tip: Ask for one upstairs (two doubles and a family room upstairs) for a little more privacy.
