Many thanks for your kind words. Really pleased that you enjoyed ‘Elvis’. Ricky very kindly organised his protégé Ben Thompson to perform on Saturday night. For a lad of not much more than 20 years of age, he did seem to go down exceptionally well with the audience. I understand he came 2nd in a ‘European’ Elvis Competition recently. You... More

Me and two children stayed here and had dinner bed and breakfast for £70. Food excellent, roms very nice, hotel very well looked after. Car parking not very large so parked on street but could be a problem at busier time. Evening entertainment with bingo and elvis. Not much spare room in our family room but not really a problem....

Many thanks for your kind comments. Good to know that you all enjoyed your stay – not least the freshly prepared food and new bathroom. The car park is often full at weekends and is not helped at the moment by the presence of builders’ skips. However I do drive in to the hotel every morning and seldom park more... More

Everything was brilliant. The staff were so obliging, nothing was too much trouble, and any request was dealt with cheerfully. The food was tasty, plentiful, and varied. There was something for everyone. The Bar was also great, even though it was All Inclusive, the drinks offered were all known brands, which is a welcome change. The standard of Housekeeping was...

Dear Maurice Many thanks for your ‘fantastic’ feedback. Particularly as this is our first year of offering all inclusives, it’s great for all of us here to receive such encouragement. We did agonise on what we should include but have tried to retain the same quality as we offer on our half board packages. Good to know that the team... More

Over the weekend of 11 to 13 January 2013, 189 of us had a great weekend at the Elgin Hotel, Blackpool.

Sir Les – you’re a leg-end! Thanks again not only for your kind comments but for all your hard work in organising this great weekend yet again. I was somewhat amused by your tip on room type. I guess after a certain amount of liquid refreshment it’s hardly important what your room is supposed to look like! Thanks again for... More

Hi Pat, I'm sorry our entertainment on your Swinging 60s weekeend did not live up to your expectations. Your comment regards the finishing time on the Saturday evening is a fair one.
