We've stayed in this hotel twice now. It's definitely my preferred place to stay in Bedford. It's a refurbished hotel, first built in Bedford's Victorian days. Now the ground floor is all open plan, but cunningly divided up into different areas so that it combines a sense of space with a sense of intimacy and charm. The bedrooms are similarly... More

We held our wedding reception at the d'Parys and couldn't have chosen a better venue. Their Library room provided the perfect setting, the food was excellent and the staff were friendly and so helpful. Then after a lovely evening, the bedroom was a touch of luxury and bed was super comfortable. Will be visiting again for dinner!

We booked one night for a special occasion. Upon arrival, it seemed strange that there wasn't a hotel reception area, but I asked in the bar and was told that 'this is it!' Then we were kept waiting while bar staff hunted for our reservation sheet, then a pen, which my partner eventually supplied from the car, and then they... More

We stayed here in July. The decor of the hotel is beautiful upmarket with a homely feel. Our room had a double bed, shower and a roll top bath at the foot of the bed.

The service was great as normal, except until we returned to our room to find water leaking through the ceiling, there is no real night staff, so if there is an emergency I'm not sure what you would do, if there are staff it wasn't made clear.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to d'Parys - the home of premium d'rinking, d'ining, and d'reaming located in the heart of Bedford on De Parys Avenue. D'Parys is an all fresh food restaurant, a d'istinctive city bar, a coffee and tuck shop offering nostalgic sweets with handmade cakes and gelato with 14 d'reamy bedrooms. We celebrate Bedford's brewing, education and industrial heritage using exposed bricks and iron to create a unique and frankly rather random mix of Victorian style and contemporary design. We are casual not formal making d'Parys a great place to enjoy a Saturday night treat; a catch up with friends over a mid-week coffee; a place to bring the kids for homemade ice cream before a trip to Bedford Park; somewhere for meetings with business colleagues; or the first choice for the paper over a freshly cooked breakfast at the weekend after a relaxing overnight stay. ... more   less
