My mother and myself have been visiting Blackpool for over twelve years, but this was our first stay at Raffles Hotel and we are both dismayed we hadn't discovered this gem of a hotel before. The host Graham was a complete joy, nothing was too much trouble, and he was always on hand to give us helpful pointers as to... More

This hotel is run professionally by people who care about the quality of your visit. This gives a very relaxing break. We were made to feel very welcome with a pot of tea on arrival and guests are also treated with friendly humour. They are very helpful with advice on local attractions/eateries. As a bonus, it is usually possible to... More

The service provided by the proprietors and staff is discreet, efficient and friendly. The Raffles' cleaner must be the the best domestic cleaner in Blackpool. The standard of cleaniness is particularly high.The breakfasts are wonderful. I particularly enjoyed my stay this year as I could sit in the front of the hotel and have a cup of tea .

I have been visiting Blackpool since the 1980's for various Ballroom dance events at the Winter Gardens and The Tower Ballroom. I have stayed in many different B&Bs, hotels and apartments in the town over these years but never have I ever experienced the quality of customer service and venue as The Raffles Hotel. From the moment we arrived at... More

Window rattling. Asked for a front room which we had but we did not realize, and were not told, of the noise to be... More

Kristian S, Public Relations Manager at Raffles Hotel, responded to this review

We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. Unfortunately there is very little we can do about the external noise, after all we are very central to Blackpool. We are not sure what choice you would like in a breakfast menu, but you can see a copy of our Breakfast Menu on our website - http://www.raffleshotelblackpool.co.uk/?page_id=400 More

The Raffles hotel is a nice place to stay when you found yourself in Blackpool. The proprietors are friendly and accommodating. The rooms are very affordable, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is particularly good.
