No Dampness at all in the room, How can it be cold when its 25degrees. Hotel full and nobody else has complained !!! You checked in on Tuesday and didn't check out till Wednesday evening so it couldn't have been bad at all.The bathroom door does in fact close and there is nothing wrong with the power shower in that...

Parking cost £13 per night, despite other reviews stating free carparking. Signs in the reception warning of fines for drug users - not exactly family friendly. Maintenance man swore 3 times in front of my child. Light in bathroom not working. TV didn't work. Felt like a doss-house!!! NOT 'GR8' OR RECOMMENDED

Seems nothing in Blackpool was up to scratch for you - yet the pleasure beach has won many awards, Bella Italia has had numerous recommendations and the GR8Hotel has had some fantastic reviews. Can't understand the doss house comment and how she is familiar with them!! Personally I wouldn't know what one was like. Maintenance man swearing 3 times -... More

Thanks for your review, glad you had a fantastic time and were able to stay for 4 nights. many guests can only afford the time for a couple of nights so don't get to know the hotel well enough. Hopefully see you again. More

We stayed for 2 nights (Tuesday and Wednesday). At only £10 each per night, we cannot fault our stay. The room was a family room which can sleep up to 5. It was very clean and excellent value. The management could not have been more helpful and friendly. The bar is very reasonably priced for their drinks. Would definitely stay... More
