    Very good

    Great hotel for a short trip to Blackpool. Handy enough to get from a to b but without being right in the middle of things which suits my family well. Compared to previous experiences, I was a little nervous about returning to Blackpool as some accommodation leaves a lot to be desired. But your hotel was spotlessly clean, the breakfast was lovely (although some things a little cold), but that was due to the heaters going out. The staff didn't notice this and did take a little while to re-ignite after they were advised. But all in all, a pleasant stay and we would use you again.

    Fabulous

    Staff were very friendly.

    Saturday night at 4.00am, a lot of people return to hotel after their night out. Very noisy talking and laughing in the corridors. Went on for some time, a good half hour or more. Then a drunken chap attempted to get into out room until he was shouted at by my wife.

    Very good

    The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good and had plenty of choice. The rooms were very hot and the window had to left open even though it was december. We stayed with a 5 year old and an extra bed was addedto the room however there was still enough space and plenty of storage. All in all it was a very pleasant stay.

    The heat in the rooms was the only problem.

    We were disturbed by loud music from the function room until 12:30pm however, the sound was turned down following a call to Reception

    Very good

    Very quiet, clean and comfortable for a larger hotel.

    Breakfast buffet a bit like a "cattle market". Bit too far out of Blackpool.

    Fabulous

    It is a proper hotel not a little b&b as you would expect in Blackpool. Great location, nice bar and offers room service for reasonable prices.

    Matress was not comfortable but that'sall.

    Very good

    Good, clean, comfortable hotel with friendly staff.

    Looking a little tired in places. The upholstery on the bar chairs needs to be replaced, the carpet on the main stairs and landing is dirty and stained. Doesn't give a good impression, although the rooms and most of the other main areas are clean.

    Friendly staff, warm and comfortable. Self service breakfast was plentiful and provided a good choice of food.

    Bit shabby in places, especially carpets in corridors/walkways.
