The hotel is not only perfectly situated overlooking the beach it is also within walking distance of all the top attractions in blackpool. The staff were extremely friendly and happy to help in any... More

When I joined Trip Advisor I expected to be writing mainly bad reviews for lots of different hotels. That has never materialised though, because my wife and I discovered Hotel Athol, and apart from an occasional change of scenery, we are always happy here. For a holiday in Blackpool, the hotels position is perfect. The owners are lovely, they care... More

We decided to book this hotel on the spur of the moment,. All the staff could not have been friendlier, efficient and more than happy to make our stay enjoyable. We paid extra for the evening meal and were so glad that we did. The vegetable soup was delicious, served with a warm bread bun. We followed that with steak... More
