We have just had a lovely afternoon tea at the Bedford hotel, there was nothing to fault and is very good value for money,we have paid a lot more for sub standard afternoon tea in more than one place,so we were thrilled with the Bedford hotel one. We would highly recommend all the staff were polite, friendly and professional.

We stayed here on a conference weekend package. On arrival we found there to be car park at the rear of the hotel (this turns out to be on Lower ground floor level). There is a lift (for wheelchairs and less able bodied) to take you to the Ground Floor & Reception. Otherwise, access to Reception is via stairs .... More

Called in for afternoon tea but I am afraid we must have caught them on a busy day. Having heard many excellent reports about this place we were quite disappointed. Most tables, and the bar area , had not been cleared of dirty crockery and glasses (no excuse really) and the service was very slow - so it must have... More

Whilst visiting relatives in Devon, we stayed at The Bedford two weekends in a row. Breakfast was our first experience of the restaurant, wich a great selection of cereals, pastries, juice, etc. and then a choice of cooked breakfast. The full Devon breakfast was excellent. We also had lunch there on one of the weekends. I had a lamb burger,... More

I honestly was not expecting food like we had at the Bedford hotel. My friend brought us here on good authority and pulling up to the place it had a certain charm to it. Inside via the car park the hotel could be described at dated but not in a necessarily derogatory sense. Red plush carpet, old pictures and paintings,... More

we met family here for lunch in the brasserie, the menu was surprising to say the least, everything is covered in sauces, and heavy, no real light options or fresh delights. The room is tired and has the feel of a retirement home! The staff are very nice, polite, attentive and ensured we got all we ordered, but the food... More

Excellent quirky and full of character. Staff were busy with pre-Christmas events and socials, but were always happy to help. We took over one of the quieter corners to relax in after performing / attending a concert across the road. Excellent service in there as always. (Didn't eat this time - but the food is excellent as well!)
