A very enjoyable stay. Excellent food, much of it locally sourced. Staff were friendly, courteous and very efficient. Our room was comfortable and clean. We would recommend this hotel. The hotel is conveniently situated. We enjoyed walking along the coast to nearby Lytham.

Clean, tidy, well provisioned room. Excellent staff and facility. Good dancefloor. Very busy carpark, to be expected with a busy hotel. Well worth a future stay. good proximity to shops and seafront, and on main road for Blackpool.

Our family has been visiting the Bedford Hotel for lunch for the last 20 years+ and lunch has been excellent each time. A selection of hot meals with delicious gravy or sauces with tender meats or fish are a must and the prawn marie-rose sandwiches with side salad are delicious. They do a tasty home made meat pie and there... More
