Perfect Day
We had a amazing wedding day with the help of the Embankment staff! Everyone was extremely accommodating on the day and made sure that everything went as planned. The food was delicious, served right on time and accommodating all our dietary requirements. The planning process was without any problems and Lianne was great at her job and helping us achieve our perfect day. She really went the extra mile and made us feel that we were in good hands! The room that we stayed in for 2 nights was just perfect. A large luxurious copper bath, large windows facing the river, spacious interior and large comfortable bed, what more could you want! Overall we would definitely recommend the Embankment as a wedding venue. If you are looking for an affordable, accommodating venue with delicious food in Bedford, you would be hard pressed to finthane better than The Embankment.

Wonderful venue. Lovely food. Great ambience. Only let down was our room, would have preferred a double bed not 2 singles pushed together.
