    The food in the restaurant was not very good- too much stodge and very limited veg option- I would recommend the hotel but not the restaurant.

    I've stayed at the hotel previously, and find it conveniently located for Bedford - it delivered what I needed for the length of my stay, and was comfortable to stay in.

    It's location is fine for car owners/drivers - but it is isolated on a roundabout on the by-pass, and not convenient if you do not arrive or leave by car/taxi.

    only stayed for a few hours but evrything was just right.

    clean, location ok,

    uninterseted staff (blanked/not helpful when tryingng to book room for additional person) beer far too expensive (rip off) room noisy (machine, extractor fan too close to window) overall - far from good value for money

    coisants little hard and hot food came out later when we had already eaten..

    Staff very helpful and friendly. rooms very clean and in good condition. Seating and bar area clean, tidy and relaxing especially with the friendly and helpful staff. Breakfasts done to a good standard. overall the hotel is run to a very high standard. We were staying at the Holiday Inn to attend an event in the area. Our stay was very enjoyable.

    Everything was to a high standard.

    Value for money and that the staff made breakfast for us at 6am for 2 days as we needed to get to the Grand prix very early to avoid traffic.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The staff were very helpful and cheerful at all times. A very simple and good hotel located at a good location away from the town. Good environment for a family with kids and breakfast was simple but adequate and enjoyable. Free internet available from the room or anywhere in the hotel. Sofa bed requested was made available immediately and was comfortable.Would recommend fully.

    None. Everything was up to satisfaction.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    The cleanliness and facilities in the room were excellent, even the sofa bed was already made up for our son which was a blessing after a long hot journey. The food in the restaurant was very good although a more variable evening menu would have been more welcome. There were only about 8 choices of dinner and no puddings.This was a little pricey but we expected this as we were on a bypass junction with no other eating facilities nearby. Breakfast however, was very good with plenty of choice.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Convenience and comfort. Particularly pleased we were able to bring the dog at no extra charge.

    The noisy heating system in the bedroom. Not suitable for a small room.

  • Single
    7.8

    The hotel was new and modern and the bed was very comfortable. The aircondition was a little bit loud do.

    Breakfast was a bit too basic, I.E. very little choice and no tables were set..

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    We went to a party in the centre of Bedford, and then visited family the following day. The hotel was easy to find, clean, welcoming and comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfast.

    There was only the local newspaper available in the morning.

    "Did what it said on the tin"

    Cooked breakfast was only so so

  • Family with children
    8.2

    The staff were friendly and the room clean and fresh

    No where to plug in hair straightners so you could look in a mirror.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Staff went out of their way to sort out a mix-up over rooms.

    The booking was for a 'standard room' and I got the impression from the website that this meant a double. When I arrived it was a twin (which the staff managed to change for me) - but it should be clear when booking that it is a twin room.
