Just returned from a 3 night B &B stay at The Bedford Hotel, Blackpool (in order to tick off ‘the illuminations’, from my wife’s bucket list). Hotel quality for this short break was not a high priority for us on this occasion, and although clean, it has to be said that the Bedford is a fairly tired hotel with dated... More

I often stay here mid week when in business to cut my travelling down. It is great value with friendly staff and the breakfast is good. They are very obliging and will arrange a early breakfast so I can leave on time. All you need

Basically had to step over people's legs, with bags, to get into the hotel. (This was pretty much the case every time we came back into the... More

May bank holiday weekend we decided to spend it in Blackpool. Booked our room for a great price, when we arrived we were warmly welcomed and reassured that my park would be parked securely at the back of the property. The room was clean and functional. The bed was comfy and included an ensuite, the only negative points I would... More
