It was really busy and we were seated at two tables that were put together for us, it was a bit cramped but nothing major once you were sat down. Staff seemed either great or disinterested.

Was surprised to stay in a hotel of such quality when visiting Blackpool. The hotel has been entirely refurbished and the rooms were of an excellent standard. All of the staff were helpful and the food excellent. Wouldn't stay anywhere else now.

Noticed right away some ash on the tea tray, I then unpacked and started to put things away only to notice that someone had left dirty knickers and sox in the drawer by the bed, something the cleaner should have noticed and dealt with. I took the... More
