My wife and I visited Hotel Athol for a week on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. The first thing we noted was the excellent parking facilities which can be a rarity nowadays. The hotel itself was very clean and tidy, room was a good size, clean and comfortable, all the staff were very pleasant during... More

Both my husband and myself would just like to say a big "Thank you" to Chris, Carl and all the lovely Staff for making our weekend stay so great. Even though our coach finally pulled up outside Hotel Athol over 4 hours late for dinner, the Staff had stayed late to serve our 3 course evening meal which was greatly... More

We had never been to Blackpool before, and prior to leaving, we were advised by colleagues, to lower our expectations of the Hotel, since it would not be like hotels that we are accustomed to. With this in mind, we were not expecting 5 star standards, but thought at the least the basics would be adequate. Hospitality; the male owner... More

I wasn't impressed with hotel athol. I found the rooms to be basic and not particularly clean. The food was not to a great standard so I didn't take all of my meals there. My main complaint though is about the owner. I found the tone in which she spoke to me to be unacceptable and as a previous comment... More
