“New hotel, spotlessly clean.”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

A new branch of PI and a very high standard. Our check in was swift and faultless. It operates on a key card system for room entry, then you leave the card in the wall to activate lights. The cleanest hotel I think I have ever stayed in, probably as it's brand new. A superb shower with a power shower and a huge rain shower if you prefer. Beautifully decorated in a boutique hotel type way. We had a room on the ground floor which I don't really like but it was ok. The hotel sits next to a new housing estate and close to a busy road but you couldn't hear any noise. The room itself was beautiful, lovely lighting, huge TV. Kettle etc. Bed was firm, too firm for my taste so be warned. There is a choice of firm or softer pillows but they make no allowance for the customer who may prefer a softer mattress, after all you are really paying for the bed, the rest is just dressing.
The breakfast was at the restaurant opposite. It was suppose to be a buffet but you had to order the hot food. Timing was an issue as you didn't know what to do first. Also if the food isn't on display people tend not to ask for it. I imagine it saves money. Saying that when it did arrive it was piping hot and well cooked. Usually at PIs the hot food is supplied on hot plates and you only have to order specific items, so not really sure why this one is different.
All in all a pretty good stay and would stay again. I hope they manage to keep up the levels of cleanliness as it really was very impressive.

Room Tip: We had room 20 on the ground floor. Last room and on a corner so no corridor noise.

My experience of Premier Inn has been consistently excellent, and Bedford South is no exception. It feels very new, and is spotlessly clean. We chose this hotel for its proximity to Luton Airport (a 20 minute trip the following morning).

One word of warning. The service in the pub next door was terrible - nothing to do with PI, but seek food further afield.

Nice place, very nice large bedroom and lovely large modern shower. Moses was a wonderful receptionist, very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again. Food delivery is also available which is a plus if you are tired and dont want to go out to eat.

I'm a fan of PIs as I feel they offer excellent value for money, but this one was exceptional. It's very new and seems more up market than others that I've stayed in but it still only cost me £29 for the night. The check in was smooth and efficient, nice blonde girl very professional at front desk. The key card entry system was good as you only had to touch your card to a pad and you got entry to the corridor and rooms. The room itself, on the ground floor had top notch A/C (it was 34c yesterday in Bedford) and the 42 inch TV was a welcome bonus. Fantastic bathroom with state of the art shower. Room very quiet overnight and quality of sleep was fiest class. Slept like a log. Didn't even hear the thunderstorms overnight....Had absolutely fine breakfast at the attached restaurant....would thoroughly recommend.

I have just returned from staying at the new Premier Inn in Bedford. I stayed just one night as I was in Bedford on business. However, I was very impressed with the service from the staff and the room was extremely clean, mordern and comfortable. The location is a bit out of the way but nevertheless no complaints from me on the standard. I had breakfast at the linked restaurant Brewer's Fayre which was also quite adequate and tasty.

Travelled in a party of four (Friday 12th July 2013). We stayed at the hotel overnight. On arrival the staff on reception were very welcoming and friendly. The rooms were very clean, modern and relaxing, bathroom excellent, large plasma T.V. The purple mood lighting around the headboard was very relaxing, with good air conditioning. This is the best Premier Inn we have stayed in, only fault was no Mini Fridge in room for cold drink & medication etc. we would highly recommend this hotel and hopefully return in the near future.

After a little trouble finding the hotel which was mainly down to me :P We were checked in really quickly and easily.

The room we had was very large for £29. It was spotless and the bathroom was great. The rain showerhead was amazing. I want to steal it and have it at home!

We have a really nice overnight stay there and would love to stay there again.

On checkout we were told that the hotel is only 3 months old.
