I tried this

 <asp:Label ID="lblBedrooms" runat="server" Text='<%#Eval("Bedrooms") +"Bedroom"+ <%#Eval("PropertyType")  %>'></asp:Label>

and this does not work

You could always use 3 labels:

<asp:Label ID="lblBedrooms" runat="server" Text='<%#Eval("Bedrooms") %>'></asp:Label>
<asp:Label ID="lbBedroom" runat="server">Bedroom</asp:Label>
<asp:Label ID="lblPropertyType" runat="server" Text='<%#Eval("PropertyType") %>'></asp:Label>

Open in new window

Sorry about that, this works (tested):

Text='<%# String.Format("{0} {1} {2}", Eval("Bedrooms"),"Bedroom", Eval("PropertyType")) %>'
