A group of us stayed here recently and I can honestly say it's the worst place I've ever been to. Filthy all throughout the hotel, breakfast uncooked and in edible, disgusting rooms. We didn't think it could be as bad as some of the other reviews stated but in reality it was much worse! My advice would be to find... More

We were a stage school and I have to say the blackpool hotel was perfect for us. We were a group of 28 and the kids were performing at Winter Gardens which was just around the corner.

We've just returned from a weekend. I was firstly impressed by the manager calling me before our arrival just to let us know that the hotel was going to be busy on the weekend we'd booked! Incase we were looking for a quiet weekend! And then we received written conformation in the post along with a receipt for our deposit!... More

Read the reviews a few days before heading to this hotel, some were good and some were bad. Our check-in was fine and I even got a room swap to be nearer my friend. We could see the hotel was in the process of being upgraded but our rooms were clean, had new carpets and comfy beds with plenty pillows... More
