We have just spent a weekend break with the family and found the hotel to be very clean and comfortable. The room we had was all that we needed for the two days. The breakfast was FANTASTIC and can say one of the best breakfasts we have ever had. Thank you to you all for a great stay, polite and... More

Just wanted to agree with the recent reviews regarding the rudeness of the owner of this hotel! Shockingly rude behaviour towards some of his guests who were spending good money at his hotel! I do NOT expect me and members of my family to be abused verbally (use of the 'f' word etc) when I stay anywhere. Having read his... More

Yep.. I was waiting for this one. Let's present the facts...I wanted to clear up...it was 1am....I'd asked your group twice...very courteously to move into the front area so I could do that. After 10 minutes you still hadn't moved so I asked more assertively "C'mon let's be having you all please" which is Lancashire speak for move your bodies... More

Thanks for the review Anne. Especially for mentioning the good points about our location (which I wouldnt swap with anybody else in town) and big brekkie. You must have been in room 20...yeah the karaoke will be noticeable there but we do end it at midnight...and we do advertise it is run at busier times throughout the year. I'm sorry... More

Stayed at the Canasta for a couple of nights in October, some nice touches but not enough to warrant the price we paid for our supposaly premier room. True breakfast was nice and Barman polite as he seemed to be the only person that really spoke to you, I agree with other comments about regulars being treated better than occasional... More

Ant B you stayed during the busiest midweek of the year. October half term. Everybody wants to park their cars with us. Blackpool was designed for the horse and cart in 1860 (when our property was built by the way). Our car park used to be a front garden. The row of properties used to look spectacular back in the...

Wow ...managed to cheese off a few keyboard warriors recently. It's true....I don't bow and I don't curtsey. What I do is make sure you get a nice cup of tea on arrival and tell you all about breakfast times, where the front door is and show you where the bells are if you have a problem. We do seem...

Just returned from a 2 night stay, rooms are fine your only sleeping in them, clean tidy and comfy. Breakfasts very nice sets you up for the day,. Parking outside hotel is a little crazy but leave the keys with them and they sort it, overall a lovely hotel and we will be going back next year.

Thanks Natalie for your honest review. Yes...as per other reviews parking can be hectic but with careful management we do try and accommodate everyone - just needs a bit of shunting round now and again :) We're so glad you'll be coming back - as my mate Alan Partridge would say "Back of the net!"

Another Canasta visit. Yet again made welcome by Doug,Mandy and Dan Breakfast amazing and sets you up for the day. Breakfast staff were run off their feet for 2 sittings but managed to do a magnificent job. Just noticed that standards had dipped slightly from our last visit where improvements are required. e.g. No lock in ladies dining room toilets/... More
