The Bedford Hotel
Ranked #154 of 864 Blackpool B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 December 2017

We have stayed at the Bedford before and having looked at some of the other comments agree that the furniture in the rooms could do with being updated. However we found the rooms we had to be clean and the breakfasts as always were first class and the staff very pleasant. We did find however that the hotel was very cold and when we asked for the heating to be switched on was told it was actually on a timer and not due to come on till about 6pm. The following night the heating was put on slightly earlier but we felt that it didn't warrant the fact it was November and Blackpool itself was Baltic. Felt it was a cost cutting exercise. At this time of year the heating should not be on a timer. We found it cold enough but had my elderly mother with us and she found it worse than we did

So in the pictures what we looked at were is the fried bread hash brown mushrooms ? And we add 4 slices of toast. The service wasn't good had to wait for coffee and toast . The man on reception was really friendly.the lift needs up dating it's the old fashion lift .the pictures that we have looked at on website bathroom look really nice nothing like it old fashion toilet the sink u couldn't put anything on it as it dropped in it .we add a fan but didn't work so when you had a shower it was dripping condensation while u was on the loo. The light over the sink didn't work it was all cracked.the shower needs updating old fashion shower the flooring in the bathroom needs replacing holes in it just dosent look nice.but if you look on the website they are lovely bathrooms all up date.the bed it use to be a divan bed but no draws just gaps the stool what was in there full of stains and the chair.the carpet was Fred burn.no Christmas decs up at all. So we will defo not be going back .

The hotel had welcoming and friendly staff. Very clean rooms and a great selection for breakfast of both hot and cold food. There was a well stocked bar area downstairs and two rooms overlooking the seafront to relax in. A good sized pool was available and their was plenty of free parking right outside the hotel
