The Bedford regency is literally in the middle of all the shops, pubs and fun of Victoria. I read many reviews on the Bedford from really bad to great. Our experience was awesome. Our room was ready when we arrived and we were given a room that I requested through email.
We went to our room which was very clean and a decent size. It was a superior room on the top floor with a the Harbour view.
Yes, the hotel is dated. It is an old hotel. But it was quirky and cute. We went the 2nd week in August so the weather was warm as was our room. But we didn't stay in our room. We got up every morning, got dressed and enjoyed Victoria. The evenings were fine when we came back. We opened our windows and let the cool air in.
I still give our stay at this hotel 4 stars with just one warning to other guests;
The seagulls on the harbour view side are VERY VERY loud. They will wake you up and will keep you up. Haha. We had to find the humor in it as the seagull's home was on the roof of the building right across the street. So, get ear plugs or enjoy the sounds. The view is awesome!
