Nice hotel, pity about the restaurant ...
Nice hotel, shame about the restaurant though! the Swan Hotel is a lovely hotel in a perfect location in the centre of Bedford, but why does the restaurant offer fixed price two and three course meals yet price two of the main course dishes? In our situation I fancies the burger on offer which from memory was priced at £10-£11 against a two course price of £25, meaning a soup starter or ice cream desert would be costing a whopping £14 or £15! When this was brought to the attention of the waitress no logical explanation was given or a cost for an a'la carte desert. I humbly suggest the hotel lowers its two and three course prices and than charges appropriate single dish supplements where the costs would exceed the quoted two or three course price. From our recent experience of staying at a number of hotels in and around Milton Keynes and Bedford it always seems to be the restaurants that let the side down!
