My wife and I stay at the Embankment about 3 to 4 times a year and have always found it an excellent place to stay. I am hoping this is just a temporary blip but the service and breakfast this time was terrible. When we arrived there was a disco on until 1am but to their credit they did put...

Nice pub on the banks of the Ouse. They do great sharing platters during the day but on this occasion it was a quick visit to have a couple of beers before a gig at the Corn Exchange. Brilliant situation but not a great selection of beers here, so probably a pub for a lager really! Busy with a more...

8 of us visited here and could not fault the service. The staff could not do enough for you, we had a big round table and atmosphere was terrific. I only had one gripe and that was the Roquefort soufflé which came for me and my niece and was more like a pancake. We told the waitress and she went...

We came to Bedford to pick up a puppy to bring back to Canada. We needed a dog friendly hotel that was in the area and the Embankment hotel met our needs exactly as we had expected.

I occupied room 104 Beautiful old style greatly refurbished and renovated hotel facing the river.

Bed super comfy. People friendly...

We stayed at the Embankment in August 2016 and found it to be a pleasant hotel, with friendly staff. The location by the river, with the outside area was very nice. A good location not far from town. Disappointed that on both nights they did not have teh gammon advertised on the menu.

Stayed one night for a celebration, we loved the relaxed atmosphere. The room on the top floor was very quiet even on a busy Friday night. Great breakfast. Friendly staff. We'll stay there again. Space filler here

Stopped for a drink in this lively posh pub. Beautiful view of the river even at night. Nice furniture and a great atmosphere. Packed but not pushy. Only had a coffee but even that came with smarties. Worth a cheeky visit I will try the food next time

Great choices, especially the fixed price menu, friendly staff, sunny terrace, and plenty of room inside. Good value for money and a very pleasant outlook onto the river. Seemed to be popular with locals, families and visitors alike
