If you like a quiet location out of town and a riverside walk into town then this might suit. Typical Premier Inn (but no lift). Bedford has an excellent promenade on both sides of the river and a town with plenty going for it.

I stayed here for one night recommended by my brother, I found the staff friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and spacious, the bed was the most amazing that I have slept in. I would recommend Priory Marina to anyone who wants to stay in Bedford with beautiful walks around a lake great dining too.

After spending two nights this week in the Premier Inn, I feel very disappointed with not the accommodation, but the way in which I was responded to when i left this morning. I left feeling annoyed. The receptionist did not believe us as we left. The question is, why ask if everything was ok with our stay & when we... More

I like these places - they serve a specific purpose - why pay out large sums of money when you arrive late/leave early and literally just need a bed for the night? Located at the Priory Marina site on the eastern edge of town, with pleasant tree lined walks (for you and/or the dog) close by around the marina itself... More

Stayed for 2 nights . Good location and quiet room at back of hotel. Shower was fantastic I have to say and reception staff very friendly. Beefeater next door was ok. Shame about the parents who think it's a creche but hey ho. Good location by the lake and a lovely Sunday after noon stroll

We stayed in this hotel the night after flying in from Canada, while visiting family in Bedford. The hotel was everything we expected, and usually expect from Premier Inns. Clean, spacious, very functional and quiet. The staff were friendly, check-in a breeze and the attached restaurant perfectly adequate. Excellent value for money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Moor up for the night at Premier Inn Bedford (Priory Marina) and you'll be sure of a great night's sleep. Located right next to the marina and lake in the tranquil Priory Country Park, yet within a 5-minute drive of Bedford town centre, you'll have a whole fleet of entertainment options within easy reach. Take the inside track at Bedford International Athletic Stadium. Hit the big sales at Milton Keynes' shopping malls. Plot a course to London on the fast train to St Pancras. Then drop into our tasty restaurant with attractive alfresco dining area, and drift off in an extra-comfy bed. Directions: From M1 J13 follow the A421, then join the A6. Leave the A6 following signs for the A428 Cambridge. After crossing the River Ouse, turn right at the next roundabout onto Barkers Lane. Follow signs for the Priory Country Park. Hotel is next to the Priory Marina Beefeater.
