“Excellent value”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

Faultless if looking for a no nonsense hotel in Bedford. Off centre but easy enough to visit anywhere in the Bedford area and if you have the time the hotel is wonderfully situated by a marina and a nature park. And very reasonable.

A straight-forward, comfortable room, in a budget hotel, with helpful and courteous reception staff.
The room and particularly the bathroom were sparkling clean and difficult to fault. The bed was comfortable and the linen crisp.
Our only gripe was that the room heating system wasn't up the the task and we found it difficult to keep adequately warm. Fortunatey, as we were visiting family nearby, we didn't spend much time there.
They do have a money-back guarantee, but things weren't so bad that we even thought about activating that.
We'd stay there again without hesitation - and you should too!

Following your comments I will ask our maintenance team to check the thermostat in each room to ensure that rooms are warm enough, and we always keep spare heaters in reception just in case!

We look forward to welcoming you to the hotel again in the future.

This was one of the best nights sleep we have ever had at a hotel! the chain have prioritised what the customers needs are in that the emphasisnis on the quality of sleep, the cleanliness and the basic needs of a traveller. There were no fancy furnishings etc, it was simple and spotlessly clean, had the most fantastic shower and really good pillows (take note travelodge!). We would have no hesitation in staying at Premier Inns again! The staff were very polite and attentive and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast we had was also fantastic and very good value for money! My only note on this is that it says that children under 16 eat free when a full paying adult buys breakfast, so we would assume that a 16 yr old would qualify. This is in fact wrong as in the same breath it states they have to be 15 and under??? slightly confusing. But if this was the only downpoint then the chain have nothing to really worry about!! we will definately be back!!

Myself and partner have just spent 3 nights at the Premier Inn for Christmas arriving on Christmas eve. The lady member staff on our arrival made us feel very welcome and this continued throughout our stay. Its location is idea for relaxing and the enjoying peace and quiet. The rooms are clean and comfortable and were even cleaned on Christmas day and Boxing day, the cleaners were friendly and polite which also contributed to a lovely Christmas break. Thank you, we will highly recommend to family and friends. We also highly recommend the Beefeater on the doorstep which served lovely food and the service was great. Lee Price

Originally from Bedford the Marina is ideal for me to visit family. A relaxing place but also within easy reach of the town, comfortable with really top notch staff. What more would a guest want.

Room Tip: As there is no lift request a ground floor room
