We have stayed in the other 4 Choice hotels, Cliffs, Claremont, Patterdale and Keswick on several occasions. This time we decided to venture down the South Shore. Hotel staff very friendly, rooms comfortable, food excellent and consistent with other Choice Hotels.

Very enjoyable stay at the hotel and the reason for this was the staff, food , cleanliness and entertainment. Downside of the stay was the weather and everything in Blackpool is geared around getting as much of your hard earned cash as possible.

Staff very helpful and friendly, food was great, particularly liked the self service buffet for breakfast and starters and sweets. We had a sea view room which was spotlessly clean. Entertainment was excellent and... More
