Bedford Corner Hotel is a modern take on a heritage institution — a respectful reinterpretation of the original, which pays homage to its roots while looking firmly to the future. 

A feel more akin to a private members club than a hotel, with its discreet front door only accessible to residents, Bedford Corner Hotel doesn’t fight for attention in today’s abundant London hotel space, but sits quietly and confidently, delivering an unobtrusive yet attentive service you’ll love. 

Situated in Bloomsbury, the literary capital of London, and within a pleasant stroll of tonnes of incredible restaurants, theatres, museums and galleries, Bedford Corner Hotel is your home from home for as long as you choose to chill with us.

The history of Bedford Corner Hotel

Bedford Corner Hotel — originally known as Bedford Head Hotel — was built in the 1870’s on the corner of Tottenham Court Road and Bedford Street. After being damaged in WW1, it was opened once again, now known as Bedford Corner Hotel, to welcome the sophisticated ladies and dapper gents of the roaring ‘20s, as well as the creative and literary VIP of the Bloomsbury Group. 

Bedford Corner Hotel has operated in one form or another since then, although the building has also been home to banks and pubs. 

While we can’t know for sure whether Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell ever whiled away the hours in Bedford, the facade with its distinctive signage would certainly have been a familiar sight as they went about their days. 

Bedford Corner Hotel offers the chance for you to wander the same streets as some of England’s most famous creative minds, which is sure to be a source of inspiration.
