Much of a muchness small family-run Blackpool hotel located on the Promenade near to the Middle pier. Staff are polite and friendly, rooms are dated but clean and adequate. Catering mostly to young families and ‘tinsel and turkey’ pensioners. Fixed time of 9am for breakfast and 5pm for evening meal. You could do a lot worse.

Back to the Athol for the first of two trips we had booked for this year. By the time we came home we had already booked a third. We simply love this place and the people who go here. Manageress Becky is always on hand and is so attentive to everyone's wishes. The sort of happy person that you will... More

This hotel has to have the best location, right in the middle of the strip. Been able to park your car right outside made a massive difference. Great easy check in. Room was clean (wished I'd paid for sea view though). Nice big bar and seating area. We thought the owner was lovely and made us feel very welcomed and... More

The hotel itself was very clean and tidy, room was a good size, clean and comfortable, all the staff were very pleasant during... More
