I've just got back from a 5 night long May Day Bank Holiday Weekend stay at Trades. I wanted to write a review to support all the great team who work at Trades because I know they have had some bad press recently which had been unnecessary and quite upsetting. Trades does not claim or pretend to be a 5... More

Stayed on Sunday night with my friend Ray. Yes... ok parts of the place are tired..... but the hospitality makes up for it. The breakfast was lovely. Dan was a fantastic guy who couldn't do enough to help you.

I recently decided to have a week’s holiday in Blackpool and after searching the Internet for somewhere to stay I stumbled across Trades Hotel. The description on their website suited exactly the kind of break I was looking for - somewhere friendly, relaxed with lots of fun on offer. However, after reading several negative reviews on the web, I have... More

Not a good place to stay at all I've styed there a few time when i visit the town, and it's just a no no. The rooms aren't clean and people wonder the corridors all night trying to get into your room. If you do stay make sure you lock your door.

Obviously every review is subjective, but I can honestly write that I do not recognise some of the negative comments made about Trades on this site - and I write as a regular guest since the mid-90s. Is it the cleanest hotel in Blackpool? Probably not. But is there a friendlier one in town? Hugely unlikely. Trades is an institution.... More

Keep going back to this hotel thinking it would have improved but sorry to say that's just not happening. This hotel should be shut down on Health and Safety issues as well as environmental concerns. The bedrooms are far to small and the beds are hard and far too low off the ground. the carpets are stained and thread bare.... More
