More Information

Today the Embankment hotel offers all the modern visitor could want today - 20 bedrooms all en suite and with telephone and television. Room rates include breakfast and a choice of newspaper.

The Embankment Hotel 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 center.

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, family welcome, friendly pub and a wide choice of meals in the restaurant and pub.
