Reviews - Bedford Arms Hotel

3AA Assessed Hotel Ratings explained
Chenies , Rickmansworth, WD3 6EQ
The Bedford Arms Hotel is a charming and friendly country house hotel in the Chiltern village of Chenies, just ten minutes from Junction 18 of the M25.
Recently refurbished in a traditional English style, the hotel offers 18 superbly furnished bedrooms, two bars and the famous oak panelled
restaurant, widely considered the finest in the area.

There are eighteen bedrooms, all of which offer full en-suite facilities and equipped with all modern facilities guests would expect. Ten of the
bedrooms are individually designed and decorated in a traditional style and eight new contemporary designed bedrooms. These include two spacious
four-poster suites, one of which has a Jacuzzi. The décor and furnishings capture the style and ambience of the hotel. The majority of bedrooms have wonderful views of either the hotel gardens or the Chiltern countryside.

The Oak panelled restaurant, which overlooks the gardens, serves a traditional menu and a large wine list, which has recently been recognised
by being awarded an AA rosette for fine food. The Head Chef will be happy to accommodate any special requests that guests may have, whether it be a special dietary requirement, or just a dislike or desire for a particular type of food.

These are two bars for guests to enjoy at The Bedford Arms. The Shire Bar is a public bar open for Lunch and Dinner where guests will find a varied snack menu, offering everything from a small bite to eat to a three-course meal. The Cocktail Bar is used by residents and diners alike, and is the perfect setting for a pre-dinner drink before experiencing the A la Carte
menu in the main restaurant, or retreating for a post dinner coffee or nightcap before retiring to your room.

Hertfordshire is one of the home counties and situated just north of London with Essex to the east, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire to the north and Buckinghamshire to the west. The major attractions in Hertfordshire are Hatfield House (Hatfield), Knebworth House (Knebworth), St Albans Cathedral, Hertford Museum, Berkhamsted Castle, Shaws Corner (a National Trust
Property). The cities and countryside are awash with British treasures, rich in heritage and awaiting your visit. So whether UK based or visiting abroad you will find plenty within this section to keep you captivated

It was a pleaure tyo be welcomed at the Bedford arms hotel. Extremely kind, helpful engaging staff. Hotel is a little tired and in need of investment but apparently this is planned. More than made up for by the service though.

Warm and friendly staff, likely to return
Booked this as wanted a weekend to explore the chilterns on bicycles. Very nice ambience in this quiet and small hotel. Recently high quality refurbishment to the stable block. We stayed in the older original rooms in the main building, Though a bit tired, the room was tastefully decorated with good quality antique furtniure. We had a very comfortable old four poster bed. The shower was an elactric pump assisted shpwer over the bath, piping hot water and very high pressures - always difficult to find in older hotels! Local beers and good wine list. We ate only breakfast, nicely presented but were surprised it tasted a little bland.

Good food
The hotel is fashioned on a country-house style, but it is all looking a bit faded and tired and could do with a facelift. Having said that my stay was comfortable, with everything in the room that you might need. The reception staff were a bit dour, but the bar staff were more chirpy.
The best thing is probably the food, which was lovely. I would certainly stay again, though only for short stay. It is within easy reach of the Metropolitan Line railway into London and not far too from Heathrow airport.
