A Bit Of Old-fashioned Luxury

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 29, 2009

I used to work at this hotel in the late 1990's and was put up in one of the hotel rooms, admittedly not one of the better ones, but I do know the hotel intimately. Even though my stay was quite a long time ago the hotel is still under the same ownership and knowing the owners, Lesley and Philip, I can pretty much guarantee that any changes since my time will have been improvements.

This is an old-fashioned hotel, formerly an Abbey and then the Duke of Bedford's private residence, and so the rooms do vary size-wise but all are characterful, tastefully furnished, immaculately clean and have all the basics such as en-suite bathrooms, tea and coffee making facilities, direct dial phone and TV.

Staff are friendly and helpful and the food excellent - breakfast is well worth getting up for!

Unique Quality: The Bedford prides itself on being one of the most dog-friendly hotels in the country and will even search out and order your dog's favourite food. They also provide hot locally-made sausages for its breakfast!

Directions: Just off Bedford Square - where the Town Hall is. For those arriving by bus there's a bus stop immediately outside and the bus station is only a couple of hundred yards down the road.
