Castle Inn
Ranked #11 of 19 Bedford B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I had to stay in Bedford for business for a week and experienced another hotel before finding this gem! Everything was perfect: room is spacious enough, very comfy and spotless. The food is amazing (really really amazing!!), the staff make you feel home and the couple of owners are always up for a nice chat. Big thanks to the breakfast chef for being like a mom to me !! Had a great time guys and I will see you again soon for sure !!

Lovely small local pub, lots of character with accommodation. We arrived late in the day and got the last room, although very small it was clean and comfortable. Close to the town, easy walk to nearby restaurants and the River.
Completely away from tourists, and an evening in the pub with the locals making you feel very welcome was a pleasant experience.

We did a one-nighter early in July for an event in the town. The access to the hotel is easy if you come in from the opposite direction to that given by the hotel's website link. The car park is contained and adequate.
Our room was compact but very well tended, with a very good bathroom, and the whole appearance of the place is very clean reflecting the attitude of the guv'nors and all the staff.
We didn't eat there apart from a breakfast (definitely English) which had all the usual possibles. Unfortunately, though, no sausages on our visit.
Were we to visit Bedford again, we'd use this place.

Great location, food and drink choice, very friendly. Had 3 nights in a very comfy bed, Room service was excellent tea and coffee for rooms very handy. Location was ideal, nowhere was too far to walk, town centre close by.

We recently booked out all of the rooms at The Castle for our family to stay during our nearby wedding. Kay, Rowland & Staff were excellent and helpful. Family were really pleased with the newly refurnished rooms and the food was top!

I stayed at The Castle Sunday night (bank holiday weekend) and was I in for a treat! Not only was the accommodation fantastic for the price, I was made feel welcome in the pub by the landlord and landlady for the whole evening!

The room was comfortable and had everything I needed. Well kept and extremely clean.

The breakfast in the morning was also very good. Will stay again very soon I'm sure!

Room Tip: Drink the Young's London Stout! It was better than Guinness
