From the moment you enter the hotel nothing is too much trouble. If it can be done it will be done. The staff are warm and friendly, the food is to die for, the rooms are immaculate and well presented. There are two lounges furnished with very comfortable sofas and chairs, a bar and a coffee shop with cake that...

I took my Mum for 4 nights bed, breakfast & evening meal. Mum is 83 and struggles with her mobility, so chose a club class twin room (double bed plus single) with a wet room. It was absolutely lovely - the room was very spacious and looked out onto the main road. The food was first class and the staff...

We had a very pleasant room ,staff were very friendly and helpful.Breakfast was excellent. It was a hot day when we visited and we would have liked to sit outside at the front of the hotel,however as there were people sat outside smoking we decided not to bother as it made the area rather unpleasant. We were saddened to see...

Thank you Catherine M for your review, the outside tables are lovely on a summers day & we mainly use it for our coffee shop diners rather than an extension to the hotel restaurant. Occasionally we do get the odd smoker who might nip outside, but they do have a right to smoke outdoors. Tinker the parrot is happy &...

We initially booked a Superior room which, although adequate for our short stay of 3 nights, could have done with updating. However, without asking, we were offered an upgrade to a Club Class room. This room had a better view over the main road at the front of the hotel and, on not too close an inspection, appeared to be...

Thank you for your lovely review Derreta, we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay & our fantastic chefs meals.

We have just returned from an absolutely fabulous weekend at The Bedford Hotel. The food was delicious, the chef uses local produce and makes his own bread, the facilities are excellent and the Hotel is spotless. The staff are genuinely pleased to help and are very, very friendly, nothing is too much trouble. We will definitely be returning.

We were on a dancing break and the staff couldn't do more for us. The food was mostly excellent; we had the fish most nights. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choices and fresh fruit available. The waiting staff were clearly well-trained. The drinks weren't too expensive. We upgraded to a 'club class' room, so we had plenty of...
