I stayed here for one night in early Feb whilst on a 2 day boiler course. I looked around on the web for local hotels and came across Tennyson House. I am very impressed with the hotel.

An overnight stay for a meeting the next day – Nice and very large house, rooms are functional and in need of being redecorated. Also, not all rooms have an en-suite. WHAT WAS GOOD – The Reception and dining area have been updated. and are much better by comparison. Excellent security for getting into the property (cameras, entry pass codes,)...

I was made very welcome straight away. The room was spacious and clean with nice bed linen and a comfy bed. Advice on where local facilities was given and an early breakfast was offered given that I had an early start. In the event not needed. Breakfast was excellent. I stayed two nights. I thought it was excellent value and...

My partner and I visited the Twinwood festival and stayed the night at the Tennyson House Hotel, as it is close to the festivals location as well as Bedford city center. The hotel offers a comfortable accommodation with breakfast, both great for the price. Staff there were extremely helpful and they all tried to do everything in their power to...
