Returned a week ago from a Blackpool Promotions trip with 10 friends to celebrate my 50th birthday, staying at the Southbank.

There was a double bed, a single bed, wardrobe with door hanging off, very dirty stool, tv and tea/coffee facilities. En-suite shower facilities were... More

If this was a New York hotel it would be classed as tired. However friendly, clean, good food, value for money and approachable staff. Central location, with free call to taxi, all in all no complaints , I got what I paid for. Staff made what was a friendly atmosphere. Carol mc
