I have stayed at this venue on many occassions over the last 5 years, most of them work rekeated trips but on occassion leisure trips too. The hotel never fails to supply an honest and upfront service. The reception is always maned and recently the guy has been more the halpfull explaining clearly all the policies and even upgraded my... More

Once upon a time this was a great gay venue! Reputation for being naughty did not matter because you knew what to expect and it was fun and without attitude. Sadly, it has seriously lost its direction! A venue that is only dirty now through lack of cleaning! A bar that is poorly stocked and a regular "few" customers from... More

Hi Daryl, Thank you for your feedback…..although not entirely accurate. Firstly I would like to point out that we stock a wide selection of beers, wines and spirits all at very reasonable prices. With regards to cleaning, we have a small but efficient team of cleaners, nothing is too much trouble. If you simply asked at reception for one of... More

A last minute decision to 'treat' myself at new years - and a good choice at that . Yes I went simply because of its 'speciality' in the gay hotel market and certainly wasn't disappointed . Clean tidy room , spotless en-suite and friendly bar and hotel staff . Will definitely plan a few more stays this year .

As someone who has stayed at Trades no less than a couple of dozen times in the last two years then I feel well placed to give a straightforward and honest opinion on this Blackpool institution. I have stayed at some of the finest hotels in the world and also the most basic of hostels in the most primitive of... More

I have stayed at Trades a few times now and have nothing but positive things to say. The Hotel is a one of a kind and very 'unique' with friendly staff and a great atmosphere in the bar area. The room I stayed in was in great condition and I will most definitely be returning!! I dont think Trades deserves... More

Trades Hotel is a unique institution. There really is nowhere else like it in the UK and probably very few places like it in the world. It is the 'hidden extras' that makes me keep returning year after year to this hotel! It's a great friendly place with great staff and can be a real fun place to be. That's... More

Was awful, sorry guys, we've stayed before but the place seems to get more run down year on year. mouldy bathroom, blinds all bent and broken, wardrobe that even MFI would... More

Let's cut to the chase. Anyone staying a weekend in Trades is there for the <hidden extras> but does it make up for the state of the place? def not! Entire place was filthy, only saving grace was our bed was clean but v uncomfortable. It needs a visit from health & safety. Toilets older than most of the men... More
