Premier Inn Bedford (Priory Marina) Hotel
Ranked #4 of 18 Hotels in Bedford
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Stayed for one night. Excellent hotel. Staff lovely, room spotless, beds comfy, shower powerful, breakfast good, plenty of parking, quiet location.
The only criticism would be the malfunctioning vending machine, but that was hardly the fault of the hotel.

One of the best PI's that I've stayed in.

We checked in quite late and unfortunately my room choice of a twin ground floor nr reception had gone, despite there being a note against my booking to this effect. However the receptionist on duty handled the situation very well and professionally and ensured I got a good room near reception (I was on crutches) and was prepared to sort out all bedding etc herself. His wasn't necessary as we had a lovely big bed and room for me to hop about.
She was very caring and professional. The room was lovely and quiet and comfortable and I had a restful night. The heating was set to a perfect temperature unlike many other hotels that are either too hot or cold and stuffy.
Everything was spotless.

We stayed here because it was very close to the place where we were visiting family. The staff were very good indeed. The location was good too. Normally we would have used the Travel Lodge at the other side of town. On this occasion we thought we would go up market a little but did not get the night as advertised by Lenny Henry. The beds were so poor I ended up with very bad back ache. We could have gone down the path of claimimg back the cost but I was so impressed with the service received from the staff that was not an option. That is the reason why I rated the whole visit as Very Good. We were advised by reception that all the beds were going to be changed. Not soon enough for us though!!

This hotel is well-located for our visit to see family in Bedford. Overall hotel is nice and restaurant was really good. However, as soon as we arrived, my son became allergic and there was a musty smell in the room. He began sneezing and we had to take him to another location to stay for the remainder of our trip. We found green mold on the inside of the window areas in the room. looked like it was constantly damp and smelled really musty and damp. We tried to air out the room and that helped a little with the smell, but the staff who clean the room every day cannot have cleaned the room without noticing, so we are surprised the room was allowed to be rented, especially to a family with small children.
