It was okish....we had a Seaview room so was beautiful from the room. But otherwise it's very old looking. Toilets were too small and WiFi sucked. Took ages for hot water in shower. However the staff were friendly. Too much dust in the room not good for people with allergy.

Stayed at this hole early December. Three old mates meeting up for the weekend. Check in from some guy who didn't seem right bothered since they had already got the money from bookings.com. Into the room and the three single beds. Don't quite know how they fitted them in but they'd managed. Mine was both narrow and high. A bit... More

My fiancé and I had went to Blackpool over valentines weekend, on the Saturday we had stayed here, first impression was that it looked horrible. We went in to check in, and there was signs up at the reception, "if you want to park your car here, you have to leave your car keys" "£10 deposit for control for tv"... More

Have just come back from a turkey and tinsel break at the Gainsborough Hotel with a coach party and what a great time we had. The food was great and the staff very friendly with staff going the extra mile joining in with the fun. Some of the bedrooms look a bit dated but were clean and comfortable, if there... More

Stayed for two nights. Food was fair and room was tidy. Don't expect The Ritz but your not paying for it. Decor is fading and bar area needs sorting out. Ceiling is held up with temporary wood nailed to it.
