Certificate of Excellence
The Barns Hotel is situated in a beautiful riverside location, within three and a half acres of landscaped gardens, yet it is just 10 miles from the M1 and 8 miles from A1. The tranquil setting offers Bedford accommodation with views of the great River Great Ouse and the local country park and wonderful grounds in which to stroll and relax. Come and join us for a beautiful and relaxing stay, why not hire our electric self drive river boat. (Summer season only)

Christmas party arrange at the barns. Highly recommended, excellent, attentive service from the manager Kay who regularly made sure we were all happy.

Lovely food and resident DJ played all requests and kept the dance floor busy.

Will return for future events.

The Barns Hotel was a perfect choice for me and my now husbands wedding.

Hi all, we are coming to stay at the hotel next Tuesday for a 2 night stay. Is the hotel fairly nearby to shops/bars/restaurants? We intend to eat in the hotel on our first night but may look to venture out on the second night just for a change. It's my husbands birthday over our stay and I'd like to ensure wherever we eat it is quite a special night. We may stay in the hotel both evenings to eat but any recommendations greatly appreciated. Thanks
Hello again Paul, Bedford town center is around 10 minute taxi journey from the hotel where you will find a number of restaurants and bars in addition to a shopping area. Recommendations are very much dependent on your preference on food. We will be happy to recommend places to eat when you arrive. To give you an idea there a some lovely Italian restaurants along with some smaller independents and chain establishments. Kind Regards, Adam Hersey Operations Manager

Hi all, I've just booked this hotel for a 2 night midweek birthday treat through Travelzoo. If anyone has any tips / pointers to make our stay extra nice please let me know. Thank you Paul
Good Afternoon Paul N, Thank you for getting in touch. You could perhaps pay for a bottle of Prosecco to be placed into your room? This would be £31 We would also arrange a Happy Birthday plate to be made for you at your dinner reservation. Please could you confirm you would like this when you make your reservation for dinner. I would encourage you to call the hotel and speak to one of the team to arrange the above ready for you stay. I hope this helps. Kind Regards, Adam Hersey

Richard, I would hate fact to get in the way of a poor response........the fact that others have also reviewed your Hotel as poor and or a mixed experiance tells it all surely.......or are we ALL wrong. If you cared to read my review it stated, fact, that the cakes were like, not actual, but like Icleland frozen ones and to that fact it remains. The fact that it is an expensive very average at best afternoon tea is a FACT. Perhaps taking photos or videos might assit you...
Hi, I'd be grateful if you could tell me if this is a dog friendly hotel?
Hello magwii, Yes we are very proud to be a dog friendly hotel. Take care, Adam Hersey

"Not all rooms are non-smoking"
"Definitely the suites are lovely, good size overlooking the river"
"If a wedding is on ask for a room the other side of the hotelfrom the barn as is a little noisy?"
"Room 33 - looks over a car park with a River Glimpse, very quiet."
