Please ignore the recent review from 'louisebcavora'....I've never known such a stuck up review that is also so totally misplaced bearing in mind they were staying in a small traditional hotel in Blackpool. Similar to Alison313 I am a repeat guest and have been staying at the Doric hotel whenever visiting Blackpool since I was 7 years old which was... More

Just back from another brilliant stay at The Doric. Great to see James, Lisa and George again. Thanks to all the staff for there efforts in making our holiday great yet again nothing is to much hassle for any of the staff. Really nice to see the same faces we met last year returning as well. It's really great that... More

I am 28 years old and have been coming to the doric hotel several times a year since i was 4 or 5. I am very fussy with rooms and food and have no complaints. With regards to the previous review by 'louisebcavora' seems like they think they had booked the ritz, not 'the number 1 family hotel in the... More

We stayed Friday to Monday and by booking it through Blackpool Promotions were unsure what to expect. It turned out to be a great stay for me and my family. The food was grand and we all felt there was something we could eat and enjoy. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much bother to... More

the letter i wrote to the doric after our stay --- My friend and I recently stayed in your hotel in the Doric Suite from the 15/07/2015 to 18/07/2015. The main purpose of me writing this letter is because there were a few things that my friend and I were not happy with. The standard of the food: Especially on... More

Staff are excellent and extremely helpful, the evening meals were very good, However the breakfast was very disappointing I'm not a big eater... More
