Our History

Hotel Bedford is a turn-of-the-century Victorian hotel located on the historic Square in Goderich, Ontario. In 1895, John Bedford's Albion Hotel was destroyed by fire and the present "Hotel Bedford" was built on the same foundations in 1896. John Bedford owned the hotel until his death in approximately 1935. From 1935 until 2000, with the exception of a brief span from 1974-1982 the hotel was owned and operated by the Litt/Curry/Lapaine families.
