Reviewed 13 August 2011

1st Bed was a poor choice for our visit with our young child to Bexleyheath.

It serves its market very well - men who're working away and long-distance drivers who want somewhere cheap to stay for the time they're away from home.

In my view, it is not a suitable B&B for families or couples.

Our experience (having specifically asked about noise as we were travelling with a child and been told that our room would be quiet) was of a room with a slamming external door directly outside that woke our child every few minutes until late in the evening when she had cried herself into exhaustion.

Men were shouting, drinking and burping in the corridors late in the evening. Men were smoking everywhere (outside only) and the room had a bed that could only be described as comedy-level squeaky (creaks loud enough to wake you if you twitch your toes) - it had been broken and poorly repaired. I was woken several times throughout the night by the various sources of noise, despite wearing earplugs.

The room was also not particularly clean, with used cotton buds under one of the beds and two plug-in room fragrancers to combat the mustiness. The room was musty because you could not open some of the windows as the blinds in front of them were broken and had to stay closed. To be fair, the kitchen area and bathroom were very clean and there were lots of towels provided.

One window in our room had no blind or curtain, so we woke up at 5.30am in broad daylight.

In my view it is not cheap either, for what you get. We were booked in and pre-paid in cash (upon their request) for two nights and only stayed one. We explained our complaint before leaving, but were not given a refund for the second night. I subsequently wrote to the manager and received no response.

My recommendation: Stay somewhere else instead, if you want a good night's sleep.
