My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at the Chateau Bedford with our 2 young grandchildren. We have stayed at this hotel in the past when it was Holiday Inn Express and really like the renovations that Chateau Bedford has done to the hotel. Our room was very nice, as was the lobby area. The breakfast was good with...

Good location right off the highway. Included free breakfast and parking. Breakfast had both hot and cold options. Staff were friendly and rooms were clean. It is an older hotel but has been updated. Room we had was large and had a mini fridge. We were at the back of the building so did not have any highway noise. I...

Very good location for most activities around the city. The front desk staff weren't as friendly as some other places we gave stayed in the area. The rooms were clean & comfortable . The complimentary breakfast was fine as well.

This is the third Ascend Chateau that I have stayed at. I have had multiple stays at the Chateau Moncton and Saint John so when we were looking for a local accommodation for a long weekend getaway we thought of the newly renovated chateau Bedford. This use to be a Holiday Inn Express. Although a nice property, it is not...

I have stayed here several times on business. This is a nice clean, modern and new renovated hotel. However, if you have stayed at the Chateau Moncton or the Chateau St. John in New Brunswick..............don't expect this place to give you the same "castle feeling" like those two hotels. I was rather disappointed in my stays at the Chateau Bedford...

Of several options in the immediate area, this was the right choice. Modernized, fresh and immaculate, it was full comfort in a convenient location. Booking price was among the best and quality surpassed expectations. Will definitely return when future requirements bring us to this area.

My family stayed at this hotel overnight. Much of the hotel has been renovated. Our room was modern, clean and our bed comfortable. The hotel was very quiet despite appearing to be quite full. The reception was friendly at check in and explained that their main lobby will be the next to be renovated. Wireless was free and didn't need...

We have stayed at this location many times but this was our first visit since it changed from Holiday Inn Express to Chateau Bedford, and we received the same friendly welcome at check in as we always did. The room we had was super clean and totally redone with new bedding, drapes & carpet. As before the breakfast was included...
