Bedford Lodge Hotel and Spa has been accepted into the Pride of Britain Hotels consortium, one of the most sought-after hotel membership organisations in the UK.

The Pride of Britain Hotels syndicate is a not for profit organisation recognising hotels that have a longstanding reputation for excellence.

It consists of never more than 50 independent, mostly family-owned, luxury hotels with current members ranging in size from 11 to more than 140 rooms.

Noel Byrne, chief executive at Bedford Lodge Hotel and Spa, said: “Many hotels are rejected at the initial application stage so it is an honour to be welcomed into this prestigious group of hotels.

“In order to achieve acceptance into the Pride of Britain Hotels group, the hotel had to pass the rigorous application process and a mystery shopper visit, the results of which highlighted the impeccable standards we ensure are maintained at all times throughout the hotel.”
