Our experience was very good, we were upgraded to a better room overlooking the river which was lovely , the staff and management sorted out a couple of issues so no complaints there. The only issue I have is the lighting in the room ( I’m assuming they are all the same) is very poor with no main big light in the room, and when you wear glasses and haven’t got the best eyesight anyway, a dark room doesn’t help.

Kevin Business - 31/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

This is the second time I stayed here in two months - last time I was really impressed, this time too in many ways - the guy on reception helped me track down my phone charger I'd left behind on my previous visit; parking was easy; and location great. On the downside, I noticed a few minor annoyances about the room, which I hadn't picked up on previously (perhaps because I had a better room then...). There was no socket near the kettle, so I had to move it to the bedside table. The lighting was a little too dim - nice ambience, but could've done with the option of a ceiling light or standard lamp to read by. And there was no desk in the room - I wasn't planning on working and didn't have my laptop, so this didn't inconvenience me, but it could have been an issue on other occasions.

Well located and decent stay

Great helpful friendly staff, good location with nice river view, clean comfortable refurbished room & good breakfast - even the scrambled eggs were still nice & moist not 'rubberry' like many buffets. Would definitely stay again And a very reasonable price too

939phillipr Couples - 20/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

The hotel staff were welcoming and the room was very spacious, comfortable and decorated to a high standard. Don't be deceived from the external view of the hotel as it does not represent the plush interior.

Dear 939phillipr, Thank you so much for all the great comments. Hope to see you soon.

I was treated like a long lost friend during my stay.

Pat B. Families - 17/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Reception staff were very friendly and I had several little chats about my day during my stay. They ensured that I had a room with a view and checked that I was happy with my room. Because my stay was long, they waived the parking fee. They also let my brother park for free when he came to pick me up and gave us a drinks voucher for the bar.

Staff were very professional, helpful and polite. Car parking onsite is a bonus with town a short stroll across bridge. Breakfast was excellent with buffet style allowing to pick and choose your preferred food. The hotel in general was spotless. The difference between now and the Park Inn of two years ago is like night and day, with the modernisation really standing out. I've been staying here for a few years now and would recommend it to my closest family and friends.

Great location, with extremely helpful and curtious staff (especially Jason). Although our room was modern, spacious, and comfortable, the lighting configuration in the room could be better, espcially around the dressing table area.

Dear Nicholas, We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Mercure Bedford Centre Hotel. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team especially your kind words towards Jason. I will personally pass on your comment to our Maintenance Manager to check the light configuration in the room.
