Just returned back from the Bedford after having spent a holiday weekend there. Was very disappointed in this hotel, although to be honest, it's probably not the worst in Blackpool, depending on what your expectations are. Very basic hotel. Our room had a separate toilet and then a separate bathroom, both very dated. There was a step up to the level of the beds which was particularly dangerous in the middle of the night for the elderly and children who forgot it was there. Lift is very cramped and gets stuck if the wooden door is not closed properly and has no alarm button to make people aware of this when they do get stuck which is scary for anyone who does gets stuck inside. The stairway is very narrow too. Food left a lot to be desired. Children's meals are non existent apart from chicken nuggets being served up that looked as though they had been scrapped off the kitchen floor after a couple of days. I wouldn't feed a dog what they put down to the kids and they had no menu choice either. It was as if they couldn't be bothered feeding the kids and just gave them any old rubbish! The swimming pool is incredibly small, suitable for only young children and the entertainment was, well....non existent. I could have had done a better job of that myself. Starts at 8 and finished for 10 p.m. Hello, I mean even a bit of background music or something would have sufficed. Can't believe they pay people to endure customers that suffering! Definitely looks nothing like what the brochure advertises. Blackpool Promotions should be ashamed to charge £99 per child to suffer that. NEVER AGAIN!!!.
