“Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Having stayed in the Cambridge hotels for many years we have found that they are getting expensive so stayed at this one at Bedford. What a find. Right next to the country park with wildlife and lovely walks around the lake.Staff were excellent and the rooms up to the usual standard and very quiet at night.

The hotel was walking distance to the university where I was hosting an event and had a lesiure park near by too with a cinema and restaurants. The hotel was attached to a beefeater and was situated in a beautiful country park where I could go for a long walk.

This Premier Inn is in a great place, with a huge country park on its doorstep but only about a thirty minute stroll, along a delightful river path, to the centre of Bedford. The hotel itself was as clean and comfortable as expected for a Premier Inn, no disappointments there, and staff friendly and helpful. We did use the Beefeater restaurant a few times, including breakfast. The food was good and service fine, despite us being there on Fathers Day when it really was busy.

A lovely premier inn location. Great staff and friendly stay. Beefeater was very good but slightly marred by having to wait 20 mins to order our evening meal but Breakfast was perfectly cooked to order

I've not stayed at a Premier Inn before but it was as advertised ..... Lovely bed , choice of firm or soft pillows , crisp , clean white bedding . Spotless room . What else do you need ? Kettle with tea and coffee , hair dryer and wall mounted hand wash and hair/shower gel in very clean bathroom . The only criticism was he duvet was soooooooooo hot - must have been 13 or 15 tog ... Window open but still roasting ... Should have had summer duvet with blanket option or something for our unpredictable weather . The Beefeater next door was great ... Opposite to the reviews I have read ..lovely staff , prompt food for dinner and breakfast next morning and my steak was perfectly cooked . I took a glass of wine and my kindle and sat in the sunshine in the beer garden overlooking the lovely lake ... Perfect location . Would definitely recommend ....

The hotel is in an excellent location near to the city centre with Priory Park and Marina on the doorstep. Staff were friendly and the hotel wasa typical premier inn, didn't use the restaurant but the bar was friendly with free wifi.

We stayed for just one night whilst passing through Bedford. The room was as we expected - clean, functional with a comfortable bed (as ever with Premiers) and the staff were lovely. The attached Beefeater restaurant was another matter - whilst the breakfast was well-cooked it did take a while to arrive despite there being only 2 other people in there. The restaurant and bar areas were very tired and looked like they needed a good vacuum and a cheerful refurbishment - dirty dark wood and old carpets don't cut the mustard any more. The staff in there were surprisingly cheery and friendly despite their dark work surroundings.
