Choose this place via groupon as both myself and my partner were travelling to a couple of zoo's around the area. The hotel is very easy to find with car parking at the front of the hotel, though I must advise you may get blocked in due to lack of space. However, this is quickly resolved by the hotel staff....

We stayed here for couples days and it was fantastic stay. Never had a single problem with anything really. Room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great and the hotel it self it's in very good location. We found everything's was reasonable and enjoyable.

We stayed at the hotel to celebrate an engagment with friends. Having stayed at the hotel while it was the Shakespeare I was expecting a huge improvment in the appearance of the hotel. It was significantly improved but he overall finish did not quite meet the standards of a hotel which is selling itself as boutique. In our room the...

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.
