My Spouse and I decided to stay at the Bedford Hotel during a mini break to London.
As this Hotel has mixed reviews, I felt a little uneasy at first. However, for the price, this Hotel is good value for money. Clean and comfortable, it is basic, but for the price and location you would be hard pressed to find anything else.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, and our room was right at the top at the back overlooking the garden, so noise was kept to a minimum. The Bedford is walking distance to 2 different tube stations and also the British Museum. Excellent central location.
Breakfast is the usual fare of hot and cold buffet - good selection. But the dining area is small and cramped - best to come a bit early or later to avoid the busy time of 9 am.
We ate one night in the Hotel. Service, food and price were quite good. However, it is let down by tired decor and a limited unexciting menu. There were only two other diners apart from ourselves.If this area were revamped, I am sure a lot more guests would choose to eat in. There are a lot of nearby eateries to choose from though.
However, overall, we were pleased with our stay at the Bedford, and would choose to stay again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At the Bedford Hotel, peace and quiet is our priority. With the elegant bustle of Bloomsbury on every side, that might sound like an impossible task. Covent Garden and the West End are just a short walk away, and the British Museum is on our doorstep. But at the Bedford, we can promise you a good night's sleep too. How do we do it? Well, many of the rooms overlook our picturesque private garden. The Bedford is small and intimate, offering a warm welcome with a personal touch. And it's a great place to relax with company too, with a charming guest lounge and laid back café occupying the ground floor. Meanwhile, the Bedford Garden restaurant serves home-made British specialities, with a modern twist, overlooking our secret garden. We're able to offer a little corner of traditional English tranquility, here, in a bustling, international city. It's made us a firm favourite with returning guests. ... more less
