Myself and some girlfriends booked this amazing looking hotel as a bit of a weekend treat whilst visiting a vintage festival. The thought of chilling out in a roll top bath was blissful. However, not all rooms are lucky enough to have such a luxury so do not be fooled by online photos and think all rooms have one. Also be aware that 2 of the rooms are actually outside the main building in a refurbished coach house, both are done up lovely but sadly let down by their close (and I mean close) proximity to the kitchen (rather noisey ) and the fact that you are forced to have your curtains closed (unless you want the kitchen staff, and other staff members on their cigarette breaks gawping into your room whilst you relax in your room).
The room had a rather fancy Nespresso coffee machine, perfect for that morning brew. Or not, no instructions could be found to work said machine, so I had to Google instructions!
The weather was a little fresh (august bank holiday) so I thought I would pop the radiator on before I went to meet the girls for dinner, return 3 hours later. No heat in the radiators. Wander back out to the main building as no phone in the room, to advise my radiator fails to get warm. I am informed it is all run off a main control in the main building, all well and good if your in the main building and not outside!
All that said, the hotel overall is lovely and finished to a high standard, just let down by a few issues. The meal in the restaurant was fantastic! As too was the breakfast.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to d'Parys - the home of premium d'rinking, d'ining, and d'reaming located in the heart of Bedford on De Parys Avenue. D'Parys is an all fresh food restaurant, a d'istinctive city bar, a coffee and tuck shop offering nostalgic sweets with handmade cakes and gelato with 14 d'reamy bedrooms. We celebrate Bedford's brewing, education and industrial heritage using exposed bricks and iron to create a unique and frankly rather random mix of Victorian style and contemporary design. We are casual not formal making d'Parys a great place to enjoy a Saturday night treat; a catch up with friends over a mid-week coffee; a place to bring the kids for homemade ice cream before a trip to Bedford Park; somewhere for meetings with business colleagues; or the first choice for the paper over a freshly cooked breakfast at the weekend after a relaxing overnight stay. ... more less
