About the hotel

Today the Embankment offers all the modern visitor could want. All bedrooms en suite. All rooms with telephone and television with Sky.

Wi-fi available for free through out the hotel and bar. The Embankment stands in a picturesque location on the banks of the River Ouse, in the midst of Bedford's beautiful riverside setting overlooking tranquil gardens and the Victorian suspension bridge. However it is only a few minutes walk along the promenade to the busy town and shopping centre. Higgins and Sons of the Castle Brewery founded the Hotel in 1891. The Brewery was set on the side of the old Bedford Castle, which was destroyed hundreds of years before. Today, the Old Brewery building is part of the Bedford Museum complex. It is just a short stroll from the Hotel for visitors wanting to see the museum and the award winning Cecil Higgins Art Gallery alongside. The Beautiful and convenient location of The Embankment is just part of the appeal. It is complemented by a warm welcome, friendly pub and a wide choice of meals in the restaurant and pub.

Not up to previous high standards

I have stayed at the Embankment around 5 or 6 times and always had good service and quality food.

I stayed on 11/1/16 and the food was not up to its usual standard, beef was very rare and I could not eat it although I did ask for medium. I was also astounded at breakfast when I ordered it the waiter said they would add it to my bill. I have always had breakfast included so Again this did not sit right with me. I could easily add more detail but two items above were enough for me to not choose this place again.
