This hotel is more traditional than The Grand Hotel. Excellent food. Excellent rooms. Great service.
WiFi signal somewhat weak & variable.
Very popular with retired people, so if looking for traditional & older company - it's great.

Room Tip: Not as busy as the Grand - a good choice if The Grand is full....

We stayed at the Bedford with my partners grandparents, to celebrate their wedding anniversary. What a superb hotel! A friendly service for me is a basic requirement when staying in a hotel or dining in a restaurant, here we did both and the staff go beyond the call of duty to deliver astounding customer service. They are polite, welcoming and all smiles at all times. We had out 3 year old son with us and like all little ones can be rather adventurous, with it being a more mature friendly hotel I was a little nervous about how he would be received. The staff and guests were more than accommodating and even let him join in with the dancing :) my only problem with this hotel is that it is far too warm!!
I don't like Blackpool very much ( st Anne's I love!) but I would recommend that if you are staying over in Blackpool that you book here!

A group of us have just spent a wonderful week at the welcoming and superb Bedford hotel. The welcome, choice and quality of food, friendliness of all members of staff - including Tinker the hotel parrot, and cleanliness of rooms could not be faulted. Everyone of our party had a truly wonderful and happy week. We just cannot thank you all enough for giving us such a memorable stay.

Room Tip: I think all rooms were good. We were at the front of the hotel but did not hear any traffic noises.

My husband and I have just returned from a few days away where we stayed at the Bedford Hotel. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to ensure that your stay was first class. The food was excellent. The Bedford was convenient for getting around the area. The beds are confortable, rooms well decorated and fresh milk was provided for cups of tea. A Dance group was attending the Bedford at the same time but it didn't interfere with our stay in fact we found them very friendly as well.

Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable and we will return.

Undoubtedly a great hotel for the mature market, but it is increasingly difficult to book for small groups. The Bedford increasingly books out the majority of the hotel to dance groups for extended periods. So great if that is what you are after! However, not so good for those in smaller groups. I feel one is also short changed on service too if not among the larger party.
A great shame.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back are quieter unless there is a function on. Car parking can be a problem sometimes.

We spent 3 very enjoyable nights in the Bedford ! 10/10 for everything, from the 'Friendly Welcome' on our arrival - even Tinker the Hotel Parrot seemed pleased to see us ! The Room was lovely, well decorated with comfortable beds & no problem to provide us with fresh milk for Tea & Coffee each day (special Thanks to Mickey the Night Porter !) Last but not least - the Food absolutely delicious we could not fault the Breakfast (amazing choice) & the Evening meals were definitely 5* Excellent ! We cannot 'Thank' the staff enough for the excellent service & for being so friendly & helpful ! Looking forward to our next visit in November !
