Me and my son booked into the Blackpool Hotel on 24th Aug 2014 and stayed for 8 nights. It was a great little hotel, the staff were very friendly and couldn't have been nicer. Keith the manager was great, really friendly and anything we wanted he couldn't do enough to help us. He was amazing. The room was very comfortable,... More

We stayed one night in this hotel, the rooms do not resemble the ones advertised on the website, our room was disgraceful, the wall paper was peeling off the walls, there were patches of mould and damp over the walls and ceiling, dead flies over the window sills, cob webs hanging from the ceiling, the bathroom was rotten, it needs...

This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at in my life. Although my room was quite clean but all furniture seemed to be very old. Lights were dim, the window was covered in seagulls' feces, the shower was very weak and the shower curtain was sprayed with some paint. The booking confirmation said that there will be some... More

Room was nothing like the pictures on the website so we were very disappointed as soon as we got there. I spoke to the manager Keith who was very unhelpful and basically just shrugged his shoulders and walked off. We have stayed in other B&Bs in the same road and we were much happier there and they were much cheaper.... More

Wardrobes with no doors, one tiny window that opened, brown marks smudged across the wall and a filthy shower, one small tv with no remote control so could only watch one channel, rubbish clueless staff, need I go on? PLUS they then took £100 off of my credit card for a mattress that they claimed was ruined. I'm still waiting... More
