I stayed here from 03/01/2012 until 07/01.2012. As headline says it really is a great little Hotel and the breakfast was superb. I had a seaview room although it was blowing a gale most of the time I was there it was nice and cozy in the room. One afternoon I sat downstairs in the lounge doing some work on my laptop and having a couple of bottles of Newcastle Brown... I would definatley stay there again. Very pleasant staff, very helpful.

I stayed at the Bedford Hotel with my cousin as we both needed a break from work.The staff were very helpful and welcoming. The breakfast was lovely the breakfast staff were very attentive, they could not do enough for us. They checked everything was ok and we had enough to eat and I eat alot at 6'4''. We were centraly located for everything we wished to visit. The pool was great and we spent a great afternoon in the spa and there were plenly of parking spaces available.

I stopped here with my family Friday - Sunday, we had a great break away in this hotel at blackpool. Firstly the reception area and lounge is spotless, a nice area to have a quiet sit down opposite the relaxing view of the sea. The Bedrooms were fantastic, So clean, as soon as we walked in there were clean towles (layed perfectly) and bars of soaps for everyone and the beds were made with clean, fresh bed linen. Bathroom also clean. The next day bed linen changed, and fresh towels provides both very clean! We had a room with a sea view that was lovely. The pool was a nice place to go and enjoy with a jacuzzi and sauna! The bar also clean, friendly and fun, entertainment each night for example, a Singer one night, bingo and kareoke the next. Every morning going for breakfast people were cleaning (which was nice to see). Well as for the restarant i am extremly pleased; Very clean! The food was delicious, 3 course meals and each course has 3 choices (also if the children dont want any of the set meals they are happy to offer other food like burger and chips) Breakfast nice, english breakfast and cereals. Very forfilling and lovely! The staff were excellent, well mannered and pleased to help with all your requests. Big shout the the waiters who were very nice, jolly, well mannered and nothing was to much bother.The location of the hotel perfect, not to far to the tower, away from all the night life of youngsters but close to everything you would want to enjoy your holiday. Overall this hotel is a great place to stay in Blackpool and I will definatly go again.

Room Tip: Have a sea view room, lovely to look out from your window at the sea and pier/ lights.

Just returned from mon to fri break for our son's 18th birthday as a family of 8 of various ages from Scotland (18 - 76)
Found the hotel good and what you would expect from a reasonable sized front line hotel.
Food fine and plentiful especially the breakfasts, rooms basic but clean.
Special mention to David the barman, who seemed to run the whole show from 5 pm till the ''wee small hours''. David you are a star and should be paid double the amount you probably get.
We met some lovely people in this friendly hotel and hope we were not too loud.
Hi to Julie and Eddy from Liverpool and all the other gang from scotland, hope you all enjoyed your break and thankyou for giving our son such a memorable birthday on our ''wee break''
WELL DONE THE BEDFORD HOTEL

Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Bedford Hotel. We were with our two young children and found it very clean and the staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was a problem. The whole hotel was spotlesly clean and the food was also super with a variety on the menu. Both of us are vegetarian the menu catered for this but the chef cooked us a meal to suit every night and also for the children.
Super hotel you will struggle to find better

what can I say about the hotel.
If your going to sit there and complain please do so. But quite honestly from our point of view best value for money, location, ESPECIALLY FOOD, small swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, bedrooms need update, but crisp white cotton sheets with en-suite - just go and enjoy yourselves folks.

Room Tip: make sure you have sea view as I should imagine it would make you feel pretty miserable if you were...
