I have stayed several times at The Bedford as a sole traveller. It has many advantages for me. These being within easy walking distance (5 minutes) to the Tower and Town Centre. The sea views are to die for in some of the rooms. The staff are very approachable. Cannot fault them. They are always willing to take on board... More

This hotel is very dated and we found many problems. The first being the elevator. It's small and a struggle to get in with suitcases. Trying to hold the door open and pull the door rail back and drag your cases in, is a bit of a challenge. It also got stuck a couple of times (not with us in)... More

When I was searching for a one-night stay in Blackpool, there was a bewildering amount of choice. What stood out for The Bedford was its seafront location and most of all it has a pool. Very rare in a budget hotel. We parked in the forecourt and went into the hotel entrance where reception is very obvious. The lady behind... More
