I have been a regular user of the Rufus Centre for over 5 years; it's central location within the country makes it an ideal venue for my work with Bedfordshire schools.The centre offers a variety of accommodation- from small meeting rooms to a large conference suite. The facilities are always well maintained, the food is excellent and the staff, without exception, are friendly and obliging. In my view it thoroughly deserves its good reputation within the county.
