Had a one night stay at the Swan in Bedford, and i have to say it was very good, the staff were very welcoming and friendly, and the hotel was really impressive,(its actually an old coaching house dating back to the 17th century). We booked breakfast in the package and also car parking(£5), The breakfast was worth the extra charge and was available until 10.30am, the £5 car park charge was also good value, as this hotel is on the river bank and parking elswhere would mean a bit of walking
The rooms were well equipped, and comfortable(allthough the pillows were a bit too hard for us), the only concern would be that noise transmits through the walls quite easily and been woken up at 07.20 by the t.v in an adjoining room is not what you need on a Saturday morning, also the doors have self closures fitted so unless you keep hold of the door it will bang shut, again not something you want th hear in the early hours of the morning, some of this could also be down to very ,very inconsiderate people.
To summarise ,an excellent hotel in a very good location, with attentive staff, and good food , with a bit more soundproofing it would be perfect, would we stay again , most certainly
