Our stay at the Bedford was excellent from arrival to departure. All staff were very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was wonderful. We had entertainment for all of the 3 nights we stayed. Will definitely be returning to this very friendly and welcoming hotel. The bedroom was newly decorated and spotlessly clean. There...

Thank you for your review, pleased you found our staff friendly. We actually are an AA 3 star hotel & very proud of it, I think if you were to check prices of hotel bars in this area you will find we are very competitive and much less than most. The restaurant is open plan and in three areas all...

First class hotel. Friendly staff. Good location - bus stop virtually right outside. Excellent food. Lovely room. Comfortable beds. What more can I say? Had booked only bed and breakfast, but after one evening meal, had all other meals there.

The food is the prime reason I would revisit this hotel. It is both excellent in taste as well as shear joy for the eye. The Table d'hote is changed daily with lots of choice. My only gripe is that if you do fancy eating of the a La Carte menu and you have booked dinner bed and breakfast when...

Thank you for your review, we are pleased you enjoyed your meals. Booking d/b/b inclusive is always a better option, instead of £25 you would be paying approx. £15 pp for your three course rosette standard meal & coffee. If you decide to take an a la carte course instead this is fine, but this takes time & there is...

Stayed at the Bedford for a dance weekend and had a fantastic time. The hotel is clean and the staff were friendly and very helpful.

So pleased you enjoyed your dance weekend & had a great time. I will pass on your comments to the chef, the meat is superb & comes from high quality local farms. Sorry about the water taking a while to get hot in your room, we are looking at ways to resolve this. See you again.
