The Bedford Hotel

The streets signs are impossible to see, so it has been fun navigating around the millions of tiny, narrow streets! But everyone has been really helpful and friendly.
The weather at the game was surprisingly warm. All the local at the game yesterday looked like they were going to expire in the heat! (I reckon it was about 24 deg).
This morning started with a 6:30 taxi ride to to the Ulyses IRISH FERRY in Dublin. We boarded after going security with our luggage and went up to the Club where we had free snacks for our 3 hour voyage to Holy Rod in Wales. I didn't get sea sick but Iayed down most of the trip. As you am see from pics it was not at all crowded. We landed about 11:30 and a bus drove us to the station to get a train to Liverpool . We only had to wait about 15 min. We rode it about a hour ...
Today I booked & paid for my flights to Australia. One way ticket! It feels amazing to say that..."one way ticket" Thinking about it fills me with a whole bag of emotions- excitement, anxiety, fear, happiness. The list goes on. It's booked, I'm going, ...
After a meandering trip from the Holyhead Ferry Terminal, we called in to a small village by the name of Risley, which is Jane's maiden name, so we were interested to see if there were any family connections. As luck would have it we struck pay dirt. Her Majesty's Prison. Oh and Risley Moss, a nature reserve, the land on which it is situated was in the Risley family over 500 years ago. We arrived in Blackpool, a seaside ...
... to start panicking about cleaning the house before we depart tomorrow morning early doors! At least the scum that might try to burgle the house will have a clean floor to walk on , clean dishes and cups to use and a tidy house to welcome them! Will help them find things easier for a quick getaway if need be!! Just one more sleep! Can' wait , ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Bedford Hotel Blackpool
My mother in law and myself went to stay at The Bedford as we visit the hair show every year, Previously we have stayed in The Metropole and The Claremont. Whilst visiting Blackpool earlier in the year i passed The Bedford and thought it looked quite pleasant so when looking for a hotel this year i thought we would give The Bedford a try- I am so glad we did !
Took my dad who is 94 the hotel staff could not have been more helpful the food was very good the room and bathroom were nice and clean the service at meal times was excelent. We had a great time and would definitly go back to the Bedford .Thanks to all the staff for a wonderful holiday.
Thank you once again
having stayed in the big blue last year we decided to stay somewhere that provided evening meals in the overall price. we choose the bedford after having looked on its website and found that it had a free carpark and a lift to all floors.also it had a swimming pool that could be used by my 16year old daughter and 13year old niece, which in the end didnt really matter as they only used it once and spent any time in the hotel playing pool with other kids.
Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Bedford Hotel, Blackpool. I went with my partner, this is the third time we have stayed at this hotel and we cannot fault it really!
We booked for the weekend in a party of 8, we found all the staff to be helpful and pleasant, the food was good, the room was adequate for our needs as we didnt spend to much time in it . The hotel was clean and tidy it was in a good position away from the rowdy night life and a nice walk to the pier. Easy reach for the trams, bus stops. We would book again no problem.
Thank you once again
Booked in August on the internet for me my huband and 4 year old grandson asked for bed and breakfast and seaview.. Arrived and were given the keys to a groundfloor room back of hotel next to lift ,insisted on the seaview and were given only available room on top floor but our grandson had to have a rollout mattress on the floor. Turned up for breakfast and were greeted by a lovely lady who said to sit where we had for the previous night, we explained we were bed and breakfast only so we had to sit outside until we were given a table, on the understanding that we didn't take too long! The poor woman said reception just kept booking in people with no regard to the space available, in the end she managed to get a couple to come down for breakfast late so that we could eat. On the one occcasion we booked an evening meal it was either wait an hour or go out into the gale with our grandchild which we did, never again!! Also got stuck in lift which is tiny.

Thank you once again
I was part of a group that were in need to be near the Winter Gardens for a dance competition, it took about 5 minutes walk and your there.
On staying at this hotel in a family room, we found it too hot and uncomfortable. Exterme noise levels coming from the bars at night made it difficult for our young children to sleep. Although not the only kids there, the other children in the hotel were allowed to run riot, and on several occasions up to the small hours of the morning shouting and screaming running up and down the stairs with no adult or staff intervention. The manager and hotel staff we found were not in the least bit helpful and did nothing to resolve our problems. We found the restaurant waiting staff were very pleasant, but did not have a good grasp of English. All in all a rather expensive and dissapointing holiday that we will not be recommending to anyone
Comfortable & friendly
Stayed at this hotel at the end of October. Great location, close enough for Blackpool if you want to go there but far enough away to avoid the hen/stag parties. The food was excellent - really couldn't fault it. The service was also very good with friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you.
Only downsides are the car park which gets very full, although no problem parking on the road &. the rooms were also a bit too warm for my liking.
I'd definitely recommend it & will be returning in the future.
Thank you once again
