Stayed here with my daughter as she had an operation the following day at Great Ormand St Hospital so this hotel was ideal being less than 4 mins walk away. Check in easy, staff polite, explained where the restaurant was for breakfast, only problem being we had to be at the hospital at 7am which is the time breakfast starts...

I stayed in a small-ish room facing the front. It had updated decor, a comfortable bed and was clean. The ensuite bathroom and separate WC were clean but could do with some updating. The breakfast room/restaurant was lovely, with fresh and interesting decor and overlooking the garden/terrace - yet the breakfast buffet itself was just ok. It can be hard...

The rooms are good. Locks still from the key age. Tragic is the lack of capacity both in the breakfast room and the lifts. I stood in line for about 15 minutes before there was a table for breakfast ( and I was alone, how about a family of four?). Since military service I had not been in a line...

No hot beverages available from the bar after 10.00 p.m. and the bar itself shut up shop at 11.00 p.m. on the button. Staff admitted it was poor but the rules were the rules. Priority should be for guests to feel they can relax into the night if they want. Bizarre.

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
