“Comfortable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

Before we book anywhere we always make a point of checking availability with Premier Inn. We did book this hotel for two night and four breakfasts in February and only paid £101. As always you can rely on Premier Inn. This Premier Inn was walking distance to a gorgeous lake that made the area a nice place to stay. Just around the corner as a point of reference for you was a Macdonalds, Bingo hall a cinema and Tesco wasn't too far away. Comfortable rooms as always. They provided us with a fan as it was quite warm. Wonderful friendly staff. This includes the lovely receptionists and also the Chambermaids. I asked for extra coffee. Not a problem in the slightest. The last thing I need to mention was the smashing breakfast. Thank you Premier Inn Bedford Priory Manor. Hope to see you again.

We didn't realise when we booked that the hotel is situated next to a country park. In the morning, we had a strole around the lake and found a deserted kids playground with cool zip wire. The fact that there's a cool zipwire nearby might not be high on the list of everyone looking to make a booking here, but for our 8 and 10 year old kids it was a nice surprise.

Stayed here with my husband and two children. Very spacious, clean comfortable room. Both boys had a very comfortable bed. My Husband and I both slept very well in a lovely Kingsize bed. Staff were friendly and polite. We were in Bedford for a family celebration. We will be back.

Stayed here for a wedding near by. The staff were really helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Our room was spacious and clean, the beds were huge and very comfortable.
Lovely breakfast, again the staff extremely helpful and attentive to the little one.
Would definitely stay again.

I stayed here at a very busy period for Bedford as there was a festival called Bedford River Festival going on. Even though there was a high quantity of people standards was still maintained. The Breakfast was delicious cant comment on the dinner as I eat out.
The hotel rooms was Very spacious it was clean and by far the most comfortable beds I have ever stayed in. The hotel rooms was very very hot the thermostat recorded a temp of 31 oC at one point. WINDOWS HARDLY OPENED!! Rubbish fan was supplied but didn't do much. I was disappointed that Premier Inn doesn't offer free WIFI, as most hotels doo and for such a big company not to offer it was surprising.
Plenty of parking even though the hotel was fully booked.

100% Recommend.

Room Tip: Bottom Floor its cooler.
