Positive Reviews

Views are just sublime.

If you get the opportunity to upgrade to a balcony room then do yourself a favour and seize that opportunity. The sweeping vistas of Lyme Bay and the Jurassic Coast are nothing short of stunning.

Food is consistently tasty.

Hearty breakfasts, tasty lunches and enticing mains: The Bedford serves up top quality fayre (and plenty of it) morning, noon and night. Chances are, even if you choose to dine here for the entire duration of your stay, you'll be unlikely to leave your ta

Very dog-friendly venue.

If there's a more pooch-friendly seaside hotel on this part of the south coast then we'd like to see it. The wonderful staff at The Bedford treat every four-legged visitor like it's a Royal corgi!

Negative Reviews

Parking is a bit thin on the ground.

You would think a hotel of this size would have plentiful guest parking. Sadly not; parking options here are pretty few and far between...

Lift is pretty cramped...

...So you may want to stay well clear and head for the stairs if you're in any way claustrophobic.

But that's about it...

Once you take the limited parking and titchy lift out of the equation, you're left with a hotel that, it has to be said, is really rather good at delivering enjoyable seaside breaks.
