Dog friendly. Made very welcome

Posted Jan 3, 2017
Pros: Its refurbed to a high standard but in keeping with the hotels history.
Cons: There could be more 'story boards' dotted around showing the history of the hotel so foreign visitors can be enlightened to the history.
Location: Great walks along the river and the park. The town offers everything you could want.
Stayed here before with my late mother. Came down to visit my parents grave. Hotel was perfectly situated for all amenities. My mum loved the hotel. She used to recall sitting on the wall of the church opposite as a child and watching the dancing that took place in the now restaurant. She made an promise to her mother (my gran) that she would stop at the hotel one day. Luckily I was able to see that promise kept for her - albeit when she was in her 80's. But she loved it. Brought back lots of very happy memories. So stopping here myself was a memory jolt for me and something I will gladly do again and whole heartedly recomment to others. I do love the acceptance of dogs and the little welcome gift you put out for them - nice touch. Thank you for a wonderful stay and constant smiles it bought me.

Town Centre Haven.

Posted Nov 21, 2016
Pros: Location, amenities, ambiance, food & drink and friendly staff.
Cons: "Staff Training" in the Restaurant on a Friday night rather detracted from the fine fare provided, with little by way of apology.
Location: Excellent Town Centre location, Market Square (across the road) "Pannier Stalls" attractive High Street and easy access to the Moors.
Situated in the very centre of Tavistock, opposite the fascinating Market Square and beside the lovely Church, this charming hotel is also handy for excursions to the Moors. With something of a castle about it, it is quite imposing, but not in any way intimidating. Exclusive parking at the rear is a boon, with a handy entrance to the hotel from there, as well as from the street. The public rooms are rather "olde worlde," but comfortable and snug. A real fire too! Checking in was simple and our was room clean, functional, with the en suite well up to standard. The double bed was a tad on the small side though and not the most comfortable, it must be said. The hotel boasts a Restaurant and Brasserie. the latter part of the Bar. We sampled both. Unfortunately, we hit "Training Night" with the former and service was painfully slow. However, the food was excellent and well presented. Ditto the Brasserie, where the service was spot on. The inclusive breakfasts too, were first class, served in the attractive Restaurant. In fact all meals were of a very high standard, as to provenance, quality, preparation and presentation. Staff were generally well turned out, friendly and efficient. All in all, quite an impressive set up, which we would be happy to recommend and return to..

We had my daughter's 18th birthday lunch at the hotel and some of our guests stayed here. The whole weekend was lovely, the staff are great and the food delicious.

Needs work

Posted Aug 8, 2014
Pros: Staff. Friendly.
Cons: Older rooms and bathrooms need refreshing.
It many ways it's a nice hotel. The staff were great - invited us to put our bikes under the hotel in the dry and safe. Looks like the newer rooms might be better. Our room was on the main road at the front. Only one window opened so room stuffy. Bathroom was tired and window wouldn't stay open.

Basic, but charming.

Posted Jul 13, 2012
The Bedford has great charm and character. Unfortunately it is in need of financial investment to refurbish the hotel and bring it up to a contemporary standard. Despite that, the place is lovely and perfectly located within central Tavistock. Staff are fantastic - polite, friendly and enthusiastic without being over the top. If you just need a base for a couple of nights, I'd recommend it, any longer though and you may want to stay elsewhere for better comfort.

Refreshed and rested

Second stay at this hotel and it didn't disappoint. Food plentiful and tasty, rooms spotless and spacious, staff faultless. At the offer prices we will stay again as Tavistock is such a lovely place to visit.
