Disappointing

Pros: Position and look from outside hotel
Cons: Complete refurb of all rooms to standard of the 3 rooms already refurbished
Location: Great location to north pier and town . Trams stop in front hotel and shoes and winter gardens within walking distance
We stayed overnight and first room was musty smelling And like something from the 60s, furniture was tired and worn , carpets dirty and old fashioned and in all a let down for the hotel . We had stayed the previous week and had a sea view room which I was told was one of three refurb rooms put th whole of the hotel , this was a five star room and the rest of the hotel needs this make over to compete. We where moved to the Churchill suite which I had to pay extra for , well this was also disappointing , tired looking and fiurniture falling apart , poor tv reception , shower pressure very poor , and the iron marked a shirt and had to be replaced which took lost hour to sort . I also got what appeared to be two bites on my leg . I did complain next day to Alison general manager who did refund me the extra I paid for the up grade to the suite and gave me 5 pound free car park. This hotel has great position and character, this said it needs a complete over haul and refurbished rooms to continue to compete and charge the prices they do, my recommendation is the are better bb and hotels in blackpool cheaper .

terrible

got to room and there was exposed wires from electrical sockets. Complained about and when maintenance man came he said somebody had loosened them and insinuated it was us. Later found shower left at highest setting and burnt myself. There are many more minor complaints about the hotel however take to long to say. The hotel staff did a great job at dealing with the complaints however I feel that you should not be complaining that much on 1 overnight

Dear Louise, I'm so sorry to read that you had some challenges while you were here and I shall follow this up with the team later. I'm pleased that the team did put things right for you and hope you'll try us out again next time you're visiting Blackpool. Best wishes, Alison

Man,woman and dog had a great time at this hotel

Excellent location as tram and bus stops outside hotel. Beach was just across the road. Away from the noisy part of Blackpool but only a few bus/tram stops to the Tower and Piers. Breakfast very good. Our room was lovely with a sea view. Well behaved dogs are welcome for a small charge to cover extra cleaning and are allowed in the large foyer where you can also have a bar meal if you so wish. We appreciated this as it was raining when we arrived. Staff were very very helpful on the reception desk, in the bar and at breakfast.

Couldn't be better?

Pros: It's location
Cons: You should only advertise what is included?
Location: Perfectly placed to take advantage of all Blackpool has to offer.
We are aged 79&76 and only one of could sit down at one time. This was supposed to be a superior room? The hotel was categorised on the Web, as having evening entertainment. If you are going to piggy-back on such categories, you should be held to task? We were celebrating our 56 wedding anniversary. No where we're we informed about the £5 per day car parking, nor the evening meal supplementary charges. We paid the same daily charge as an all-inclusive Mediterranean cruise and feel we were penny pinched.

Short Break

A very good 2 day break. Staff and service excellent. Both breakfast and evening meal super. The only problem was difficulty in finding a parking spot during the day.
