Booked in late afternoon on a Sunday afternoon as we were attending a funeral the following day. Pleasantly surpised by the accommodation. Clean, well appoined room with a comfortable bed and despite other comments although the room faced the road we didn't experience any traffic noise. Bathroom was great with a large walk in rain forest shower and plenty of hot water. Ate downstairs in the pub and it was what you would expect from a Wetherspoons, reasonably priced food and drink served very quickly. There is no on-site parking but there is a multi storey car park nearby and again it is reasonably priced (£10 for an overnight stay) Would definitely consider using a Wetherspoons Hotel again if there were one in the area I was visiting. Incredible value for money.

The room on the first floor was tiny and to add the the closet/cupboard feel there were no windows. I immediately asked if it was possible to move rooms but was told they were full. ( Upon checking online there were rooms available??) Room was clean and pleasantly decorated. Large walk in shower with rainfall shower. Kettle available for tea and instant coffee. Room was quiet. Central to the town centre. I would not stay here again.

Stayed here for just one night and it was really good. Social distancing is in place and the staff are really friendly and food as usual in Wetherspoons was good. The bed was massive and the room clean and it had everything you need for a good nights stay, would certainly use again if in the area. Thanks guys

I stayed here one night last year on a business trip. I had my reservations about staying at a Wetherspoons pub. We all know how rowdy they can get, but no!! It was absolutely fine,the only noise was the council happened to be digging up the road throughout the night, so no fault of spoons, so I'll let them off!. The room had everything you would expect of a good quality room. A good range of TV channels, good Tea and coffee facilities, clean towels. I can t fault the room either spacious and spotless.the checkout slightly impersonal, but overall wil be back if I'm in bedford. Would recommend.
