Very poor guest house

Near Bedford town family room very basic with plug leads dangling of the wall very noisy late at night huge bang and the hall ceiling falls down owner advised staff to either cook breakfast or clean up the mess!!.

Ceiling debris was still on the floor when we left!.

I am very disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us

after providing a high level standard of service and also allowing you an

early check in at no extra cost. You will find that our rooms are clean and

up to date and very competitively priced within Bedford. Unfortunately the

collapsing of part of the ceiling was totally unexpected and brought on by

a day's worth of heavy rain which in turn, caused damage to our roof. I can

understand that the falling of the ceiling would have made a loud crashing

noise as it hit the floor, this was beyond our control. If there were any

other noise issues, these should have been reported to the in house manager

on the ground floor. The phone number is displayed clearly on the notices

present in every room. It would have been addressed if there was a problem.

I'd also like to add that no other complaints were received from any other

guests that evening.

As for the debris, it was swept to one side on the stairs coming down as

that was the best we could do by the time we were alerted to what had

happened as we had to cook breakfast for a full hotel.

I understand that my staff member was very polite, courteous and apologetic

at breakfast showing an interest as to your visit to Bedford. A breakfast

sandwich was also made for another member of your party to take to your

room. I'd like to think that we did our best to recover a very unexpected

situation beyond our control and hopefully this has not deterred you from

staying with us in the future.
