Brunch with friends on New Year's Day. Great buzzing atmosphere (we had booked which was just as well as it filled up pretty quickly). Delicious food, mashed avocado on sourdough toast, yummy. My friends was just as tasty. A very nice Bloody Mary rounded off the meal, and my one gripe is that for the price it could have included...

Very good service,great ambience and excellent food. Highly recommended but book early as it gets busy. (for good reason!). They even serve Yorkshire Tea and a very nice mini cheese and crackers which finish off a good meal very well for an oldie like me.

Pricey for a pub. Nice atmosphere. Offered a poor table for dinner and ended up at the bar. Good view of the river so not too bad. Overall nice place to go as a couple. Drinks were expensive for the location, £10 for a beer and small wine.......but I did come from up North. Service at the bar was good.

The hotel is right on the river a few minutes walk into the town, however the par and restaurant mean you don't really hVe to venture out . The rooms are roomy with large ceilings with nice fixtures and fittings. The food was very good and the service of the staff too. My only complaint is the parking not enough...

My wife and I stay at the Embankment about 3 to 4 times a year and have always found it an excellent place to stay. I am hoping this is just a temporary blip but the service and breakfast this time was terrible. When we arrived there was a disco on until 1am but to their credit they did put...

Nice pub on the banks of the Ouse. They do great sharing platters during the day but on this occasion it was a quick visit to have a couple of beers before a gig at the Corn Exchange. Brilliant situation but not a great selection of beers here, so probably a pub for a lager really! Busy with a more...

8 of us visited here and could not fault the service. The staff could not do enough for you, we had a big round table and atmosphere was terrific. I only had one gripe and that was the Roquefort soufflé which came for me and my niece and was more like a pancake. We told the waitress and she went...

We came to Bedford to pick up a puppy to bring back to Canada. We needed a dog friendly hotel that was in the area and the Embankment hotel met our needs exactly as we had expected. The hotel is located in a beautiful area along the canal and Bedford is a very vibrant town with an interesting history. Their...

I occupied room 104 Beautiful old style greatly refurbished and renovated hotel facing the river. Rooms are spacious very clean and very nicely decorated (no modern style though, in case you look for 'technological' set up... you won't find it here, and rightly so, as it would not fit with the style of the place). Bed super comfy. People friendly...

We stayed at the Embankment in August 2016 and found it to be a pleasant hotel, with friendly staff. The location by the river, with the outside area was very nice. A good location not far from town. Disappointed that on both nights they did not have teh gammon advertised on the menu.
