Just had one night here but wouldn't have minded a couple of more days. As ever the staff were attentive and friendly and the hotel was up to the usual Premier Inn standards. What stands out about this hotel is the location. Situated on the edge of a small country park it was nice to have a stroll round the...

Great location next to the Marina, plenty of space & walking paths along the canals. Walking distance from centre. Clean & tidy. Great sleep as usual. Check-in & check out nice & easy. Beefeater next door.

Love premier inns as they are always good value for money. This one as good with a great marina/lake to walk around and close to town. The only thing that let's this place down is the so called all you can eat breakfast buffet. You have to order your breakfast and we had to wait 30 mind for it to...

Doors banging shut all night, the room temperature was so hot and the air conditioning didn't work. The hotels location was fab and the pub next door was nice with a great breakfast in the morning. If you don't need to sleep then this hotel is for you!

A small but very friendly premier Inn in a lovely location. .. good walks nearby and a cosy beefeater restaurant attached. The meals were in the attached restaurant in and cooked to order no waiting over buffet style service. The staff were friendly and helpful and made our stay great.

Lovely marina, room was clean and comfortable, large beer garden, large car park, very welcoming staff happy to answer any questions. Good choice of food on the menu and very reasonable priced. This was our second visit and we would definitely go back again when we're in the area.

A nice hotel and situated near the river and marina so walking into town is fairly easy for energetic people. Unfortunately there is no lift and some of the rooms are a fairly long walk along the corridor. However, the more you do this walk, the shorter it seems to get! As with most Premier Inns, they do not provide...

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.
