Having spent a night in this premier inn. I will never return again. Shared a twin room with a friend for one night and found the single bed to be like a bag of springs. The room was full of spider webs hanging from the light fittings and a disgrace.

This Premier Inn is ideally sited to Make a visit to Old Warden to visit the Shuttleworth Estate. The Inn is positioned out of town adjacent to the marina with ample outdoor seating and plenty to see.

Had a lovely stay overnight. Beautiful surroundings with the river. Within walking distance of town - about 30mins walk along the river. Only downside was being woken early by a delivery lorry outside my window.

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.
