When we visit Tavistock on any day of the week, you can always expect friendly & accommodating staff, On this occasion, we stopped for a coffee initially, then progressed to a pint & snack. The service was second to none, as always.

Congratulations on your anniversary. I am delighted you were spoilt by the Bedford's hospitality. We look forward to welcoming back soon.

Having a fan already in the room was a blessing during the heat wave, was just one of those simple extras some venues forget about or you have to ask for one. Here at the Bedford such matters were no problem.

Dear Mr Green, Thank you for your review. The weather is still fabulously hot here is Tavistock. I am pleased the fan was a welcome relief and that we catered to your holiday needs. We hope to see you again!

Description
The Bedford Hotel in the heart of the historic Devon market town of Tavistock. 31 individually styled rooms, including Four Poster rooms with spa baths. Welcoming lounges packed with antiques, and a bustling ...More bar popular with locals and residents alike. Full Devon breakfast to set you up for the day. Delicious lunches (from a bowl of homemade soup to a three course meal), and candlelit dinners in the award-winning Woburn restaurant. Or just enjoy a hearty meal in the bar in the evening. Local, seasonal produce is at the heart of all the menus at The Bedford. The Bedford Hotel is an ideal base for exploring the wild majesty of Dartmoor National Park, or the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Less
