4/10 Fair

Poor attitude and service
There were a number of points wrong with the room and the service staying at the hotel. On providing the feeds back to the manager they then proceeded to argue the points, so I stopped my feedback and left. The issues with the hotel and the service will continue and I won’t be staying there again.

Decent hotel however lot could be improved
Positive: king size bedroom which was spacious and clean equipped with a nice TV, hairdryer and coffe machine. Provided with bathrobe besides towels Hotel lobby was modern and welcoming Nice view from the room and breakfast area Negative: parking £5 per night which is a bit expensive considering the location to be in Bedford... During my last visit (literally opposite hotel) parking was free Breakfast very limited items... Been to 3* hotels who provided same exact menu Was unable to connect the TV to the computer (tried both cable and wireless) to watch a movie

6/10 Good

Not great.
Very dated hotel. Corridors reek of damp. Room very small but clean and comfortable Breakfast poor - one poor woman trying, unsuccessfully to keep everything topped up. Had to ask for sausages, hash browns, HP sauce and glasses for orange juice. Juice then ran out, fruit salad was empty and pastries too.
