I stayed here for a weekend in July 2013. It was one of those bookings you make when you have a long weekend and are feeling horny and in need of somewhere new to go for that sleaze fix. Arriving at the hotel on a hot summer afternoon I was greeted by a friendly gent who welcomed me and booked... More

I do like Trades, I just wished it was a bit cleaner and they got things fixed. I'd pay more for better facilities because I like the late night fun and bar, and surely a finished refit would bring back the punters who deserted the place? The breakfast is great, the people who work there are fantastic, and it could... More

I was given a room that I did not like on my first night and I asked the manager to change it as I was not happy and he did it gladly. Secondly, the hotel is possibly one of the few in the world where if you are on your own, you can speak to other people staying in the... More

It does as it says on the tin. It's Blackpool. The staff were all excellent. The breakfast great with plenty of it. The bar prices reasonable. Like so many say "It's not the Ritz" but neither is it £300-£600 a night in central London! Come on guys just enjoy a good, honest, seaside town, B&B with a uniqueness found nowhere... More

I am not known for giving very positive reviews but having cancelled a trip to trades before because of some of the reviews here, I though now I have stayed I would answer some if the blatantly false reviews on here. Firstly - this is a GAY hotel in Blackpool - it is not the Ritz, you get an idea... More

Came for the Blackpool pride and had a absolutely great weekend! Great friendly staff will do anything for you. Rooms are clean and tidy but could do with a little updating but overall It's honestly a really nice venue... I was recommended by a friend and had an absolute blast! Will be back!

This hotel was filthy-our room had faeces on the wall and we had to buy bleach and cleaning materials to make our room habitable. There are better cheaper options in Lord Street-avoid this hotel. Really poor service at the bar too. Apart from that compares with the Four Seasons!!
