“Lovely place to check out.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Enjoyed our breakfast. Can select from menu or breakfast buffet available for $22. Highly recommend the oatmeal brulee. They rotate a lot of people for breakfast but don't rush you. Did not have lnch or dinner here. Make a reservation for dinner well ahaed of time.

“Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

We had a decent meal. The place is good with children and the food is okay. Somewhat overpriced, but nevertheless a decent hotel restaurant with a fine ambiance.

“Good for breakfast but buffets are overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

The ambience and customer service in the Crystal Room are very good. I've learned to order ala carte for breakfast as I don't think the breakfast buffet warrants the $22 charge.

“Christmas Buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

We've been frequenting the Bedford Springs several years for the Christmas buffet and this was the first time it was in held in The Crystal Dining Room. While a lovely atmosphere, it was very un-spacious, meaning the tables were cramped and it felt like a maze to find your way to the buffet. Previous years it was held upstairs and the feeling was roomy and comfortable.

Service was very good when present. I assume it was not to rush the diners, but our check could have been offered fifteen minutes earlier.

While the food was good, the selection and quality seems to be diminishing each year. The salads were fresh and the dressing very nice although not labeled. Trout, vegetables, potatoes, bacon and sausages, as well as beef that was so tough you only wanted one piece as the butter knife was no match for the medium rare jerky.

Will likely search out a new destination for Christmas 2014.
