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

A typical Blackpool hotel. Staff and host were very friendly. Sadly the decor was tatty in the main lounge, the chairs needed reupholstering. The bedrooms needed a refurb too. Our matresses were very lumpy, could feel the springs. Shower curtain kept on falling down. The food was poor on the first night but then improved completely with generous servings of... More

Check in went without a hitch with the landlady giving out directions to the rooms. We were on the second floor. On entering our room the first thing we noticed was... More
