Took my mum there for a weekend break through blackpool promotions and can honestly say the staff were very friendly. Food tasty and great to have a buffet style breakfast. Good entertainment at night. Rooms clean and liked the walk in shower rather than the usual bath/shower set up. Will definitely be back.

I visited the hotel as they are part of the Tastecard group of eateries that offer 50% off your food. There are more options in Blackpool that offer 2 for 1. I opted for the Cumberland sausage, mash, gravy and peas. I followed it with waffle and ice-cream. The portions were a good size and were both very tasty. I... More

As the title says a good hotel with lovely staff except one of the lads in the morning serving breakfast who could try smiling, if you don't enjoy your job lad leave. Didn't bother tipping him as he couldn't get the order correct. We stayed B&B and all in it was a better than average stay and possibly might return... More

Booked this through Blackpool promotions for a quick weekend break. Great value for the money, food was good and entertainment pretty decent also. Only real downside was rooms and shower were pretty small, a minor complaint, staff throughout the weekend were superb.
