Did the job but I wouldn't say boutique. Use of black paint, neon light and wall message - yes, boutique - maybe not? Breakfast serve at 7am, staff arrived at 7:15am, ordered but still nothing (even coffee) at 7:40am - eventually left to get to meeting.

Me and my husband stayed here at the weekend for one night. We got the deal from groupon. The room was clean and comfortable and we were greeted by a bottle of prosecco (sadly nothing left for us to open it with). Bathroom was clean and plenty for us. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. The only problem we had...

Have just returned from a weekend away in Bedford. Stayed at this delightful hotel and was made to feel very welcome. It is ideally located within a short walk from the town centre but far enough away not to have to listen to the late night revellers. There have been comments about road traffic noise. We were in a room...

This hotel rooms are lovely and nicely decorated. The price wise is really good stay. The staff were always helpful and the restaurant service was great in the morning. Small good car park. Best thing it's just 5 min walk from stating if you don't bring the car.

We had our Christmas party here on the 26th of November 2016 and the whole experience was fantastic. Milena helped us organise the whole thing and was very helpful though out. The room was decorated to a very high standard and the decorations were very classy and tasteful. The food served on the night was also fantastic and was offered...

It's a shame that the service let this place down, the waiters took their time getting the menus to us and then coming to take our orders and take our drinks despite there being only 2 tables occupied at the time. The food and drinks actually made up for the poor service and I would most likely come back as...
