Quality costs, but worth it.

Liked: Took my wife on a work trip. This is probably the best hotel in Bedford; the rooms, location, service and facilities are all excellent. I've statyed a few times and the larger rooms are definitely better.
Disliked: Creaky floorboards under the the luxury carpet take the edge off perfect. And one feature-wall is plenty; the second made the room seem a bit dark.


Poor - 1.5 out of 5

Robert Mon, 17 June 2024

Room was fine, abit dark,...

Liked: Love it
Disliked: Cold & undelivered Breakfast, very un friendly & one abrupt staff in particular. We queried about discount price email we had received of £9 instead of £11 & was told flatly it was £11 or nothing. We ordered 2x poached eggs each and we are were forgotten about, Chef must be still cooking them! There was no clearing of plates on tables. The buffet food was all stone cold. Make your own toast, make your drinks. I wish I could have make my own breakfast hot & with poached eggs as requested ! Your staff stood around or walked about no smiles, unfriendly, did not engage with people. I have been in the catering business all my life & the job is to be of service to people. Did not see it at the Bedford breakfast lounge! Wished I had gone elsewhere for Breakfast

I expected a lot less...

Liked: I booked a room at this hotel due to the facilities and also the convenience of the fact I attended a birthday party at the venue.
Disliked: The staff where rude and unhelpful. The venue where the party was held was dirty and the staff had no knowledge of the event that was taking place.
