Clean, tidy, past reviews not representative of friendly service we received. We were a 12 person stag group Yes he takes £20 damage deposit per person - but all returned without fuss. No different to any other place. Owner is friendly and provided good advice on areas to go etc. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to other stags hens etc.

What you expect from a budget hotel in Blackpool. Staff are friendly, rooms are adequate and clean enough. This hotel was good for a low price range if you're not planning on spending a lot of time in the hotel. However, I would stay closer to the attractions next time.

I recently led a group of u19s footballers from Dublin on a trip to participate in a tournament in Blackpool. From the moment we arrived, we were treated very well by the hotel owner and made feel very welcome. He was a great help to us in terms of giving us directions and guidance in relation to what to do... More

I booked this hotel last minute, and read the negative reviews and just hoped for the best but after staying here i won't be... More
