“Lovely Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

This hotel was excellent value for money. It was clean and well presented and the staff were all very pleasant. The breakfast was excellent whether we went early (7.30) 0r late (9.30). It was close to Kings Cross station only £6.00 for taxi, very handy for Russell square underground and for the Big BUS Company tour bus (stop x just over the road) We had a lovely meal in The Swan, pub just down the alley across the road. Having read peoples previous comments we did request a room at the back of the hotel away from lifts and they did oblige us. Would definitely stay here again

Room Tip: Floor six at the back of the hotel away from lifts

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend break in London. It is well placed for the West End and Theatreland / Covent garden.The hotel is well presented and the rooms we had were comforatble. Only one slight complaint was that our room was right next to the lift shaft, which makes a lot of noise until the early hours of the morning! The breakfast was excellent and the service really good. Overall, a great place to stay if you want to visit that part of london, and even if you want to explore further, Holburn tube statiuon is less that 10 minutes walk away.

Room Tip: Avoid one next to the lift!

Excellent value for its location. Bedroom clean, modern & bright - as was the bathroom.
Shower powerful & hot.
Bed & pillows of good standard.
English breakfast pretty good, didn't try Continental choices.
Staff at Reception and at breakfast friendly & helpful.
Main plus point - the secluded & tranquil garden in the centre of London.
I was staying on business and would certainly choose to stay again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back overlooking garden and small stretch of open ground rather than the front...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

I agree with most of what has been said about this hotel- great location, clean rooms, decent breakfast ( not anything great) and nice, although, small rooms. Do request a room overlooking the garden as the street side is terribly noisy. Our flight arrived in London early at 6:30am. We arrived at the hotel by 8. I wasn't feeling well and we requested an early check in. We went and sat in the guest reception area and checked numerous times, always being told they were trying to get a room ready. I feel like we were out of sight, out of mind. Feeling quite frustrated at 12:30, we went and sat right in front of the reception desk. At that point, I was pretty miserable. Finally, when we confronted them yet again, they had a room ready. I didn't feel like they did as much as they could have done to accommodate us, especially since I was sick. For this reason, I wouldn't stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the garden for sure.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
At the Bedford Hotel, peace and quiet is our priority. With the elegant bustle of Bloomsbury on every side, that might sound like an impossible task. Covent Garden and the West End are just a short walk away, and the British Museum is on our doorstep. But at the Bedford, we can promise you a good night's sleep too. How do we do it? Well, many of the rooms overlook our picturesque private garden. The Bedford is small and intimate, offering a warm welcome with a personal touch. And it's a great place to relax with company too, with a charming guest lounge and laid back café occupying the ground floor. Meanwhile, the Bedford Garden restaurant serves home-made British specialities, with a modern twist, overlooking our secret garden. We're able to offer a little corner of traditional English tranquility, here, in a bustling, international city. It's made us a firm favourite with returning guests. ... more   less
