another very good premier inn,all the staff were brilliant and freindly,the rooms were very clean and comfortable, but a bit dated,but no problems at all as we were only there for one night meeting freinds,there was a terrific bang (like a door being slammed at 3.45am it did wake me and my wife and would think it woke a lot of others) it is set in a lovely location,parking can be a bit tight at times. bedford shopping is not to far,perhaps have a longer break in future and visit the area more,the lakes and local parks, rivers look nice,thank you premier inn.

Room Tip: rooms a bit dated,parking can be tight.

If you want a cheap hotel that is nice and clean then look no further. So long as you don't want a pleasurable dining experience aswell. The restaurant here has gone to the dogs. Our experience was awful, the food was cold and took an age to arrive and the waiting staff were running around like headless chickens.
Such a shame !!!

Was a lovely location next to the Marina and the staff were very polite and helpful. The breakfast was very nice as well though the veterinarian sausages tasted a little strange but thats a personal thing and no reflection on the meal. Now for the negatives. Paid for the WiFi to find out that it can only be used on 1 device and as there was two of us with two devices was a bit annoying. We did find that we both woke up with stiff backs and the bed seemed very high. I also know that they could not control the weather but the wind was making a very strange noise across the window through the night.

Overall very good would stay there again.

We have never stayed at a Premier Inn before, I don't really know why. This one was very good and the staff were extremely friendly and welcomiing.The room was clean and modern and the bed was comfy,In fact everything Lenny Henry says it is in the TV ad.
We met up with our family who live nearby and had a very good meal in the Beefeater next door, another place we don't often go to as there isn't one local to us.We opted for the three course meal at £14.50 [after 6.30pm Mon-Thurs] It was all plentyful and delicious, we paid a £2 supplement to have an 8oz steak instead of a 6oz one, but even then still great value for money
I am Gluten free and the waitress very kindly adapted the dessert so it would be ok for me.
All in all we will definately use Premier Inn again in the future.

This is a good hotel to stay for a 1-2 night business trip but as for leisure unless you are staying for a wedding etc it should only be used as stop over. Staff in the restaurant were very helpful and friendly and seating was comfortable.
