VENUE IN FOCUS: Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa

In March I was fortunate enough to be invited to the wonderful Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa in Newmarket, Suffolk. The privately owned hotel is the only 4 AA red star hotel in Newmarket is set in three acres of beautiful gardens.

The first thing to note about this hotel is the drive, having left the A14 and a short drive into Newmarket the road towards the hotel is surrounded by notable race horse training centres which provides a most pleasant drive down to the hotel's carpark. 

There is a huge focus on hospitality at the hotel and all the staff are incredibly accommodating from check in to the food and beverage teams. 

Rooms are well equipped and facilities include fresh coffee, Molton Brown toiletries, bathrobes and much more. The view from my room across the Godolphin Stables was also spectacular a real highlight.  

Events facilities have recently been refurbished to an exceptional standard and the sales & events team are most happy to provide bespoke offerings for all kinds of events. A private garden can also be included for event hires. 

Spa facilities are separate to the hotel's main building which I think is a huge advantage for corporate event bookers, whilst there is a gym and pool within the main building for those morning or late night work outs. 

This is most certainly a venue to consider for corporate and private events alike!
