In the heart of the picturesque village of Bedford, you’ll find a charming little establishment called ‘The Duke of Bedford Inn’. The old Victorian hotel, which for many years stood here in ruin, has been lovingly restored and upgraded and 11 comfortable en-suite rooms have been created within the original old stone walls. In the traditional wing the worn old wooden floors bare testament to the history of the building and wherever possible as much of the old has been retained to enhance the new.
Our conference facilities can comfortably host a variety of functions from a small formal meeting room for 15 people to a celebration dinner for 200 in our beautiful new ballroom. A full English breakfast is served daily in the Ladies Lounge and we’re pleased to announce that our under our new manager Iylsa Van Mierlo, we look forward to a bustling bar, light lunches in the Courtyard and excellent dinners in our new dining room!
Secure parking is available and there is a member of staff on duty 24 hours.
The hotel’s courtyard is fast becoming a hive of activity; the Hope Street Hub shops, which include the boutique Mayfield, the hairdresser Headwaves and beautician Sixth Sense, all open onto this central area and it has proven to be a wonderful meeting place and venue for parties and corporate functions. The much-loved Butcher Bird Restaurant, which opens on request, is just a few metres away, as are the local banks and the pharmacy. New Hope Street shops will be opening on Wednesday the 8th June 2016.
