Bamford House Hotel
10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"Just returned from a one night stay in the Bamford House, the rooms were clean, staff were great... very friendly. Lots of advice of where to go and where to not go which was very welcomed! The owner Helen even ironed one of our shirts!
Good location, about 3 mins walk to the promenade. Rooms were plenty big enough, with good facilties.
Would highly reccomend and would stay again with no queries."

Best hotel yet
"We spent a week at the Bamford in july and had the best stay . Helen,Rick and the rest of the staff were the perfect hosts and always on hand to help . Me my wife and 3 kids stayed in the family room which was spotless as was the hotel .We even had enough space in the room for a travel cot which was an added bonus. The food was excellent and the hotel is ideally located for all the attractions. We have stayed in a few places over the last 6 years and the bamfod has been the best by far . We will definitely be back ."

kindness of owners
"I had booked for 2 nights to be able to visit a friend in hospital. Friend was discharged early and I told Helen I would not be staying for the second night as planned. I fully expected to pay for this as I was not able to notify them until 3pm on the Saturday but they were pleased at my good news about my friend and didnt charge for the room although they were unlikely to re let it at such short notice which was very kind of them. Room was very clean."

A home away from home
"My sisters and I have been visiting Blackpool for fourteen years and this is the first time that we have ever stayed somewhere we are 100% happy with. Within seconds of arriving, it felt more like we were visiting friends than staying in a hotel and that was down to Rick's hosting skills. When we met Helen, she was exactly the same - warm, friendly and very helpful.
The bedrooms were beautiful, in incredibly good decorative order, and absolutely spotless. The bathroom was immaculate and so were the floors. Now, I know this is going to sound odd, but when we go away, I always check the inside of the kettle to see how clean it is and I was amazed that it was as clean as mine at home.
The dining room is lovely, and the proper tablecloths did not go unnoticed. The food was cooked to perfection and the staff looked smart and were very friendly.
Nothing was too much trouble for either Rick or Helen and he, in particular, was an absolute god send to us on the Sunday. We owe him a huge thank you for that
We genuinely cannot wait to stay there again next year."

Excellent weekend stay!!
"We have recently returned from the Bamford Hotel in Blackpool. We had an excellent weekend. The hotel is spotless; rooms are decorated to a high standard. Breakfast was great and the service from the hotel owner (sorry we never did ask your name!!) was brilliant - very hospitable. They even accommodated my pregnant wife on the 1st floor to save her swollen feet!!! Will definatley return when our baby is born."

Thanks again for a lovely stay. Helen, Denise and Jack - Kent"

"This was our third stay at the Bamford House Hotel. The hotel is in a superb location, the rooms are decorated beautifully and 10/10 for cleanliness. Rick and Helen are a lovely couple. Breakfast was perfect. Definitely our favourite hotel in Blackpool. We won't stay anywhere else. Thank you for an excellent stay. Sharon and Carl from Stoke-on-Trent."

Blackpool with kids
"A family friendly hotel in the heart of Blackpool at a very reasonable price, only 5 minutes walk to the tower and beach. Car Parking available 1 minute walk away approx Â£9.00 for 24 hours.
We booked a family room which had a double and bunk beds. Room was immaculate as was the ensuite. The small hotel bar was friendly and relaxed - Not a bad price either!!
The kids couldn't wait for breakfast and they weren't disappoined, good quality breakfasts with good cheerful service.
I would definately go back and would most certainly recommend for families and couples.
Thanks for a great stay. Clare, Chris and Kids"

Blackpool a real treat
"I selected this Hotel from its web site where it stood out from the others in Blackpool
The hotel was a real treat , spotlessly clean , well maintained and with parking, breakfast was excellent
Flat screen LCD TV , free wi fi and air conditioning in the bar - all for Â£25 each
Big hotels in Blackpool should watch out
Helen an Rick were great hosts, bar was a real surprise , value bar meals and sesnsible drinks prices
Keith in Glasgow"
