Excellent cuisine and a beautiful sea view! Modern and comfortable bathroom in a spacious and clean room, although quite cold, very basically decorated and rather unwelcoming. Stunning location, right by the sea. Good pet friendly facilities, including a nice and cosy dog

Stayed at this hotel over the New Year with a friend. The staff are all very friendly and obliging. Could not fault the food - great selection at both breakfast and dinner. It is nice to be given a choice at breakfast instead of a buffet. Hopefully it is their way of doing a

Single with Superior Sea View
There were only two of us and vegetables came in a small serving dish from which we helped ourselves. I don't know what would happen if there was a much bigger party, eg a table of 8. I guess it would depend on what menu items had been chosen.

I only saw the sea fronting single room which was quite small and had a shower. It did have a lovely balcony overlooking the sea. The bed was probably not a full sized single.

Dear John Thank you for your email. Yes, upgrading to a sea view or partial sea view is possible but this does depend on availability. The best thing to do would be to contact the coach company directly and put in a request for a sea view with them, they will then contact us and we can have a look and see what rooms we can allocate for you. Please note that some sea view rooms may involve a supplement. I hope this helps. If you have any other queries please do not hesitate to contact us where we will be pleased to help. We hope to welcome you to The Bedford Hotel in May.
