This will be our 3rd visit and staying in hotels in Blackpool since we moved from UK to live in Limassol, Cyprus over 11yrs ago. The last 2 hotels left a lot to be desired so it was with some trepidation that we confirmed this booking but at the time, all the reviews had been very good. However, as the... More

I apologise that the guests did not fully enjoy their stay at the Hotel, and thank you for their comments. We do not provide toiletries in bedrooms, this is so we are able to discount the prices greater for the benefit of guests, and most people bring their own as they have a preferred brand. If anything would have been... More

Prior to our stay, I received a phone call from the hotel informing us that a large group of children (a football team) would be staying the same weekend and they... More

Totally ruined our night away! Opened the bedroom window in room 207 and ceiling blew off/up! Dust and cob webs everywhere, we stay away every other week and first time we've ever left somewhere and demanded a refund! Wouldn't even rate a 1!
