Stayed here with a football team while we were playing in a tournament nearby. Location was very good for visiting what Blackpool has to offer being very close to Blackpool Tower, Shopping streets, the seafront and the tram line.

The rooms are really grubby and quite smelly went straight out to purchase fresh air spray . However... More
