Poor room, poor food. Boiler broke down so no shower after a days work. Room not cleaned properly. Cold in the room with a pokey electric heater to heat it. The list goes on. Won't be using premier Inn again anytime soon.

i have stayed here before. The staff are lovely. The rooms are not the most modern, but they are clean and have everything you need. The windows open to let fresh air blow through. You are by the lakes, so it is lovely to wake up to birdsong. I have always had good service in the beefeater next door and...

An excellent, comfortable hotel in a lovely location, within walking distance of Bedford town centre. Extremely friendly and helpful staff who were always happy to provide advice and a good welcome. There is a good restaurant adjoining the hotel

Arrived 1630 on the 3rd and whilst it was dark hotel was easy enough to find. We had booked a family room and got room 21 which was big enough for us including my 5 year old daughter and 3 month old son. The staff offered the fridge for any milk to be kept in for the youngest which whilst...

We arrived early to drop off of the car ahead of attending a wedding. The staff however, arranged a room for us to get changed in, booked us a taxi and whilst we waited for the taxi checked us in to save time later. All the staff really make this hotel.

I booked a room at short notice for £67.00 and was lucky enough to get an accessible room. As always with access, improvements for some mean improvements for everyone. Room 1 is ground floor and spacious. There is no view from the room itself but it is very close to the main entrance and is on the ground floor (there...

If you like a quiet location out of town and a riverside walk into town then this might suit. Typical Premier Inn (but no lift). Bedford has an excellent promenade on both sides of the river and a town with plenty going for it.

I stayed here for one night recommended by my brother, I found the staff friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and spacious, the bed was the most amazing that I have slept in. I would recommend Priory Marina to anyone who wants to stay in Bedford with beautiful walks around a lake great dining too.

Arrival after long and difficult journey from Cornwall reception was excellent and friendly informing us that the bar would be closed in 20 minutes that gave us time to obtain a night cap. The room was in very clean and tidy. At a very difficult time we managed to joke that Lenny Henry slept there!. After an excellent nights sleep...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Moor up for the night at Premier Inn Bedford (Priory Marina) and you'll be sure of a great night's sleep. Located right next to the marina and lake in the tranquil Priory Country Park, yet within a 5-minute drive of Bedford town centre, you'll have a whole fleet of entertainment options within easy reach. Take the inside track at Bedford International Athletic Stadium. Hit the big sales at Milton Keynes' shopping malls. Plot a course to London on the fast train to St Pancras. Then drop into our tasty restaurant with attractive alfresco dining area, and drift off in an extra-comfy bed. Directions: From M1 J13 follow the A421, then join the A6. Leave the A6 following signs for the A428 Cambridge. After crossing the River Ouse, turn right at the next roundabout onto Barkers Lane. Follow signs for the Priory Country Park. Hotel is next to the Priory Marina Beefeater.
