Breakfast was great, all public areas nice and comfy. our bed was so... More

We arrived at the front door to be greeted by the owner and to tell us we had booked it wrongly and if there was indeed 2 of us in each double room (instead of 1) the price is £50 per night instead of £35!. (My mistake). We then asked to cancel he said he would charge us anyway as... More

Helpful owner/Manager. Breakfast was good, plenty of choice, hot and well cooked. The UHT milk in the room fell into my cup of tea in one great lump, no idea how long it had been there. Great location. Hotel itself - Grim. Delapidated and run down, definitely in need of modernisation and a good clean. Very small room and not... More

Thank you for your review. The UHT milk you refer to was well in date, but during the recent hot weather, some has been going off long before the use by date. We have now changed the product we use and the new 'milk sachets' we use do not seem to have this problem. We are in the process of... More

We arrived at the hotel to find the front entrance door locked. After pressing the door bell for 2 or 3 minutes the manager unlocked the door and we confirmed our booking with him and asked to directions to the nearest secure car park as the hotels car parking spaces were full. As we walked back to the hotel after... More

We are sorry that these guests were not entirely happy with there stay, however yet again no complaint was made at the time of their stay, except to stay that one of the hinges on the wardrobe door had come off. This was only reported upon handing the key back at the end of their stay. We are in the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my 2 children and wife, overall the hotel could do with a revamp. The rooms are dated and the cleanliness is not where it needs to be, the only saving grace is the owners such nice people made us feel really welcome and like nothing was to much trouble. Location is spot on and... More

These guests arrived early and the room still needed to be hoovered, which was done after they checked in. Toilet roll was replaced upon guests request. We should have ensured it was in the room, but more than happy to admit we sometimes make mistakes. More

This 'charming little get-away' is situated about 10 minutes walk away from the nightclubs and bars that 'sunny' Blackpool has to offer, or 20 minutes drunk stagger following the trail of sick and smell of wet dog. The first thing that hits you (smacks you right in the face) about The Residence is that the manager clearly has a warped... More

Yet again - no complaint received from these guests during their stay, however I will try and respond the best I can. Car Parking is on a first come basis, however guaranteed car parking is available and is shown on our booking confirmation - guaranteed parking was not requested by this guest. There was no 'surprise' key deposit - it... More
