The Bedford Hotel
Ranked #159 of 863 Blackpool B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 January 2013

Hi, Just returned from Blackpool.We decided to give the hotel a try for a long weekend break (25-28th Jan).
The price for 3 nights B&B was a real bargain.We weren't disappointed! The rooms were spotless! We had sea view rooms with large bay windows! The rooms were large and more than adequate for our needs.
Beds were made, bins emptied, drinks tray replenished EVERY day! Breakfasts were lovely, plenty of choice,cereals, fruit and juices etc. Cooked breakie was yummy,cooked perfectly and as much toast as you like!
We didn't use the pool during this visit,but, lots of other guests did. This and all the other public areas were also spotless (and believe me I can spot dirt/dust a mile off!!)
. The bar area was comfortable and friendly, plenty of stock and prices very reasonable. Having the lift to all floors was a bonus when our legs were tired from a day exploring!
Last but not least, all the staff including bar, reception and dining were very friendly and always greeted you with a smile. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and this will not be our only visit, we WILL be back and we'll recommend the Bedford to all our family and friends! Well done to all the staff and the owners.
Sue,David,John & Michaela.

On behalf of my wife Paula and I , I would fully recommend the Bedford Hotel for a break,Found Adrian and all of the staff very welcoming and Friendly.
While registering a complimentary drink was provided and for residents and to meet up with other residents a Complimentary Afternoon tea was also provided. The rooms were clean and well serviced the Ensuite was a really good size,the Restaurant and Bar areas were good to,although lounge could be a bit tight depending on how many were staying.
The Hogmanay entertainment was good with Guest artist and Disco ,so no complaints there, judt wont mention the "Piper".
For those travelling home by bus the Hotel allowed us all to wait till our buses arrived in the early afternoon, and as a result again privoded complimentary Tea and sandwhiches before our arrival.
Many Thanks,
James McGladrigan

Room Tip: Our stay was spent in 101, and it was good.

Thank you for your kind comments, we try our best to make guests stay more enjoyable, I am pleased you joined in the celebrations. The complimentary drinks, tea and sandwiches are a chance for guests to meet and join together in the festivities. I’m glad you enjoyed the entertainment, and the staff were very helpful and pleasant, If we can be of any assistance we will try our best to go that little bit further, I do apologise for the confused state of the Piper, but we have had him at the hotel for many years and he has just had a bad illness that thankfully he is getting over. We look forward to welcoming you back very soon, thank you once again.

Stayed here for 4 nights mid November 2012. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the breakfast's were brilliant they had just about all you could ask for. The rooms were clean and we had a great sea view although the weather could have been nicer. The swimming pool and the Sauna were really good and we used them every day. Will stay here again on our next trip to Blackpool really could not fault it in any way. Thanks for making our trip a great experience

Room Tip: ask for a sea view if they are available our rooms were really good

Me and my wife stayed recently at this Hotel, for a short weekend.
The Hotel is warm, and very clean, with many good facilities.
In the morning, at breakfast, we were looked after by a very pleasant Waitress, and the food was very good quality.
The Hotel has an excellent Swimming Pool, and towels are available at the reception.
On the Sunday afternoon, me and my wife were helped by a very pleasant young man, and he even helped us find details of The Grand Theatre, and events that are held there. He advised us of where to go in Blackpool, like the Local Park, and the Zoo etc.
The Hotel is only a 5/10 minute walk from all of the local restaurants, and bars.
I would definately recommend this Hotel to my friends and family, and will be returning myself in the New Year, without doubt. The Manager, Adrian, on reception, took our booking by phone, and offered us deals for next year. He was always very obliging.
Many thanks.....
