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)

Disappointing overall impact. For such a rated hotel wine purchased by the glass and later at dinner by the bottle were both warm. Hotel also tired and bar area inadequate. Dining room furniture was like being in a cheap cafe.More

The hotel is in the perfect location for travel between east and west and provides comfortable accommodation and facilities. There is a restaurant and riverside decking and the hotel is close to parks and waterways as well as conveniently situated for the town and beyond.
