Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visiting Bedford for the last few weekends and stayed in various hotels. Wish we’d found this earlier. The enormous rooms are decorated and furnished to a very high standard far above the price reflected.

This was a last minute addition to an evening celebrating a family birthday and boy was it worth it! A great extra treat 😊
The room (number 4) was lovely, spacious and luxurious with the added extra of the bath overlooking the river view. We were greeted at the main door downstairs and were shown up by Luke who was very informative & helpful, he told us it was his favourite room as you can lay in the bath and watch TV, which my partner found to be very true, plus the windowsill is very convenient for putting your glass on 😂
He did warn us that the hot water may be slow to come through which we found in the morning with the shower and we did find that the hairdryer lead is not long enough to reach any of the mirrors so you have to style your hair blind or with someone holding the shaving mirror!
Luke kindly reserved us a table for our evening of dinner & drinks and we had lovely food, took advantage of the extensive cocktail menu and generally had a fabulous time!
Our family also had 2 of the other rooms which were equally as lovely. We didn’t have any disturbances despite being in the centre of the town.
In all it was a lovely staycation and we will be returning, hopefully very soon 😊

We were visiting family on Bedford and are so pleased we booked this hotel. We have eaten at the Lounge in Bristol so being able to enjoy the same sort of food is a bonus. But the big win was our room. Beautifully decorated and so peaceful with a wonderful view of the river. The location is really good for exploring the town and although there is no parking on site the nearby 24 hour car park is ideal. We have already booked in for our next visit.

This is the very definition of a boutique hotel. Great location and amazing, spacious rooms.
Every single member of staff was so welcoming, friendly and helpful - a most welcome change that added hugely to our stay.
This is bound to become the 1st choice destination in Bedford.
We'll definitely be back.

Fantastic stay in this hotel after watching Simply Red in concert in Bedford Park. Hotel is within walking distance of the park so great location. Lovely setting by the river in redeveloped area watched the rowing from our bedroom window. Enjoyed a lovely stroll along the river in the morning. Rooms beautiful loved the decor and really comfortable bed which was huge! Bath tub was massive more like a small swimming pool and so was the shower. Attention to detail amazing. Staff very welcoming and check in process easy. Don’t be put off by bar below rooms we didn’t hear a sound.

Absolutely lovely hotel in the centre of Bedford. Stayed here for one night on our way to Kent from the north. The room was fabulous, very clean, very comfy bed and the biggest shower head!! Also an amazing breakfast in the restaurant below in the morning. Will definitely be back.

My stay at Albero Lounge was great! The room was very spacious, pretty and clean.
The bed was very comfortable (although a little creaky) and the big bath was lush! The room was extremely quiet, the location is convenient and the staff were super friendly. The guy who initially greeted me (whose name i unfortunately dont remember) was lovely!
The taps in the bathroom made a lot of noise when being used and there was a bit of a wait when I was ordering food due to small number of staff on. Overall just some minor (somewhat picky) complaints but mainly a very pleasant stay!

Fabulous first stay at Albero Lounge.

Extremely warm welcome on arrival and was shown to my room. My room was beautiful (very nicely appointed) and the kind staff member was very thorough in explaining everything. Spotlessly clean with wonderful walk-in shower and good provision of shampoo, shower gel etc. Room also delightfully quiet. Breakfast begins at 9am and the choice is very good...both breakfasts I had were beautifully done. I would only change one element and that is the black pudding...would urge you to use Stornoway black pudding instead. All staff members were very helpful, polite and cheery! So in summary would I stay again: Yes, Yes, Yes. Is there anything at all that I would change...I would ask you to put a blind on the velux window to block out the early morning sunlight and I would ask you to turn down the music volume at breakfast service.

Stayed on a Monday night in a very comfortable room (bed was excellent), that was very quiet despite being above a restaurant / bar area. Ate there in the evening and at breakfast - food was good served by friendly and helpful staff. Albero has an arrangement with a gym 50m away to allow guests to use their facilities - which is a real plus. Only downside was the radiator in the room didnt seem to be adjustable - the room was cool, which was fine for me but might not suit others. Nice location next to the river with other dining options close by. Great first visit - will stay again.
