Holiday Inn Express Bedford
Ranked #6 of 18 Hotels in Bedford
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 August 2014

spent a night at this hotel and found it to be one of the cleanest we have stayed at, the whole place looked like new ,the front line staff were a credit to the company and were extremly courteous and helpful.We booked breakfast and again this was spot on allthough we had to wait for a table, suspect due to the reasons in next paragraph
Parking was a little tight but the Bedford festival was on at the same weekend, so the whole town was jam packed.
After speaking to the reception staff sat nav seems to be indifferent for locating the hotel, even though its been here ten years,would agree with that!!!
Will be using this hotel again

I have stayed at the hotel for 4 weekends now and although the staff are very nice, the food lets the hotel down alot. Its too basic and is just all microwave food... the internet wifi speed is so slow it doesnt register on a speedtest... the only good thing the hotel has got going for it is the air conditioned rooms

We stayed here for 2 nights as we were staffing a fleet event at Millbrook Proving ground. The hotel is clean and modern - exactly what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express - what makes it special are the staff. Friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them. 10/10

We have stayed at this hotel many times for athletics competitions and have already booked to stay again. It is the best hotel we stay in for competitions which we attend all over the country. The staff are extremely welcoming, helpful and will go out of their way to assist with any extra needs. The rooms are simple but always very clean and comfortable with all we need when we stay. We have slept very well at the hotel and have never been disturbed by motorway noise or noise from the hotel itself. The breakfast is great value for money as it is included in the price of the rooms and there is a good selection to choose from.The hotel's evening meal menu is varied and of a good quality. We have also had takeaways delivered which the hotel happily provided crockery for. The lobby/restaurant area is very comfortable and a good place for us if we have down time between competitions. Across the car park from the hotel is a garage with a Marks and Spencer food shop which is also great for any extra supplies you need.
We hope to have many more enjoyable stays here.

We have just stayed here for a couple of nights whilst visiting family nearby, and found this a very convenient place to stay. On arrival the staff were very helpful and friendly, and we were made to feel welcome. The room was spotless, as was the neat and compact bathroom, with lovely white fluffy towels. Great shower with plenty of hot water! The only negative that we found, was that the mattress was very soft and uncomfortable, too springy, not good if you suffer with a bad back! Other than that, our stay was excellent value for money, and the lovely breakfast was an added bonus. We would definitely use this as somewhere to stay in the future.

We attended a tournament at the University and found this to be the perfect place to say. It was great value for money and the room was spotless. It had everything you needed lovely fluffy towels, hairdryer, tea and coffee facilities. The breakfast had lots of choice and the coffee was very nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Diana who went out of her way to give us directions to the Uni. We left the car and took a taxi into the centre which was only £5 each way - saved us finding parking. We would definitely use this hotel if visiting Bedford again.

We attended a conference very near here and found all the staff very friendly, helpful, and working hard. The room was spotless and the bed and pillows were most comfortable. There was absolutely no noise from the motorway and we slept soundly. The breakfast was plentiful and full of variety. We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to leave this review, we have just brought new pillows for the bedrooms and will shortly be replacing the beds and it sounds like we have chosen the right ones. It is good to hear that you also enjoyed our free breakfast.

Hopefully we can welcome you again soon
