4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Liked the room and large bed. Quiet and slept well. Liked the heavy red velvet curtains, and artwork. Great bathroom, good double glazing. Didn't like the shower, which was hard to regulate and a bit scary hot. Air conditioning (heater) was a bit slow to start. One bedside lamp didn't work, and small thing, but no milk or milk substitute for coffee? Staff were lovely and the building is awesome, just a tiny bit more attention to detail would make it a 10/10

We had a lovely stay at The Bedford. The room was amazing- decorated really nicely, loads of space and clean. The bed was really comfortable and the blackout curtains did their job. You could hear a small amount of noise from the bar but that was to be expected and nothing a pair of earplugs (supplied) didn't sort out. Bear in mind as well that that The Bedford is right next to Balham train station and from our room you could hear the trains coming and going. Again, the noise wasn't too bad and didn't go on all night. It might be possible to have a room further away from the railway line so worth an ask if you think it would bother you. We were impressed at the reduced use of plastic. They do supply shampoo, conditioner etc in small plastic bottles but I hope as we didn't use them they would be reused. There was tea, coffee (nespresso machine), porridge and fruit juices supplied in the room (there is a small fridge) but no milk! That was the only disappointment. It's worth asking for some milk when you check in. All in all we had a brilliant stay at the Bedford and will definitely stay hear again next time we're in the area.
