My Wife wanted to go to Blackpool between Christmas and New Year so she found a good package to go to the Bedford Hotel.
The hotel is kept warm despite the weather outside been very cold and the room we were in was basic but was clean and for the price we paid it was worth the money.
The food was good and really good value and you can tell the staff here are really trying and they are always helpful and willing. The pool and sauna area is really nice and most of the time we were the only ones in there and the hotels location is perfectly suited for North-shore and is nice and close but not too close to the town center.
I have a few gripes such as the beer and Cider on tap at the bar was awful, the strongbow had no life at all and we didn't drink it and another person we spoke to left their Stella as they said it tasted awful. The TV in the room is also very small but works perfectly fine.
Please note there is about 5 or 6 steps up to the entrance of the hotel but once inside there is a lift to all floors.
For the money we paid this was a excellent value trip.
My score of "very good" is taking into account the value for money which here is excellent. Sure I could pay more and get a lot grander hotel with huge TVs and all the trimmings but as we just wanted a quick getaway for good value this was well worth it.
I would sum up by saying if you are looking for a good value get away then you can't really go wrong with the Bedford. Its a bit old fashioned but You will get a clean warm basic room, nice meals and a nice pool and sauna area and staff that work really hard, for the cost you can't really go wrong if you want somewhere to stay in Blackpool.
