Comfortable bed but draughty room. Friendly staff but had to hunt for bar staff

The breakfast was great, also a lovely building!
Other Comments
The afternoon tea was less than average - sandwiches not neat, strange fillings and a little stale... Also the decor in the restaurant was odd! The room was advertised as 'executive' but on arrival was quite standard and did not look similar to the picture.

Purchased as a birthday treat for my husband, we had an overnight stay here after a visit to Bletchley Park. Emma the receptionist was lovely. Very welcoming and helpful. Our room was spacious, clean and well appointed. We had booked a table in the restaurant for dinner and found that there was a very good choice of dishes. Our meals were delicious and the service was very good, all the staff were very nice and pleasant. Breakfast was self service and there was a great choice from cereals and fruit to a Full English! All good. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this hotel.

Dated rooms, very uncomfortable beds/pillows, mould in the bathrooms, tv that was soo small it was almost no point in having it and the cheesecake was slop on a biscuit, staff were les than friendly on receiving the feedback that neither of us liked the cheesecake! Safe to say we would not recommend it and wouldn’t go back there!

Think the menu could be a little bit more varied when we first went to the Barnes better menu. Drinks are expensive but really like going to the Barnes.

We found the staff and food to be very good, the room and bathroom were very clean just a bit dated. The hotel is out of town but it was £5.40 for a taxi into Bedford. An enjoyable stay on the whole
