      As we had made a last minute booking we had no expectations - we loved the hotel, the staff we very welcoming and all very efficient and professional, the room was newly decorated and fitted out and spotless (and huge), the food was excellent - the restaurant is particularly attractive and the menu is very good. All in all a fantastic experience and we will be going back!

      A good country town hotel. An attractive old building (1722 I think) with comfortable refurbished rooms and adequate parking. The restaurant food was of a good standard but I thought slightly over priced. The staff are an asset to the business, well trained, efficient, friendly and welcoming. Overall a pleasant experience.

      We had a very comfortable super kingsize four poster bed and everything in the room that was needed for a comfortable stay.

      Attentive and competent staff; comfortable and well equipped room; easily accessable by road and pleasant although small grounds.

      I decided to make more of an occasion for my mum over the Easter break and so booked her into the Bedford Hotel as a bit of a treat. They really looked after her and she had a wonderful stay, enjoying the lovely view from the room, being most impressed with the restaurant and leaving an Easter egg is the room was a very nice thought. Thanks and well done to the Bedford for making it such a nice stay.

      Comfortable room

      Hair in bath (not mine). Drunks shouting in the street outside which woke me up three times during the night.

      Friendly, helpful staff, good food (particularly breakfast)

      Traditional hotel with historic atmosphere in town centre.

      Bar area needs refurbishing in particular carpet.

    • Older travelers

      Staff were friendly and polite. Hotel was central to our requirements as a base for touring the Devon/Cornwall border regions. As the hotel was dog friendly it was a pleasure to stay there without too many restrictions and within a short walking distance of an excersie area for the dog eg river walk and parkland.

      Bathroom handbasin was a wee small and although shower over bath was good it was not a power shower so pressure of hot water was poor.

    • Older travelers
      5.8

      Restaurant and bar food excellent, as were the staff employed in those areas.

      Had to wait 10 minutes to register as the sole person on duty was involved in a lengthy telephone call. Also ridiculous that the often only person manning reception also had to serve in the adjacent bar (being summoned by a bell located on the bar itself). The room was disappointingly small, with an exceedingly cramped shower room - no bath. This was not the standard of room that was expected from the information contained on the website. It took four requests to get the bedroom tv/radio repaired so as to receive BBC channels - and only then after a threat to take the matter up with the manager. Although outside temperatures were low and the room was cold, no heating was forthcoming. Advised that "guests complain if the hotel is too hot", but radiators in the rooms could be individually controlled. In any event, a portable, supplementary heating unit (such as a convector heater) could have been made available. It was also noteworthy that, although the bedrooms were not being heated, a flame-effect gas fire was in use in at least one of the hotel's common rooms. Was the real reason for not providing room heating to save money?

      Friendly welcoming staff. Delicious lunch time light lunch. Central to Tavistock and personally convenient for the wedding we attended. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. Clean throughout hotel.

    • Group of friends
      10.0

      Comfort and conveniene and location closing to family

    • Single
      8.2

      Quiet room with plenty of space. Staff were very helpful and polite. As with many hotels in Britain this building is very old and some of the floors have a distinct slope, but it all adds to the character.

      Nothing at all not to like
