This hotel had such fantastic reviews, We were expecting great things. It was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. Our tiny, dark, dirty room overlooked the bins and pigeons - one tried to fly in at 5am one morning! The entertainment downstairs was so loud up to midnight that our children couldn't sleep. People smoked outside our bedroom... More

My only small concern was the entertainment. It was good for 2 of the 3 nights we stayed(hence the title) and it's a shame as this... More

As far as Blackpool hotels go, this is one of the better ones. The staff are really friendly and work hard. The food is nice for mass catering and really plentiful. However.......... Please sort out the smoking situation as people stand inside the doorway when the weather is bad or its windy resulting in the sun lounge at the front... More

We just spent a week at the Doric as part of a family group of 14 covering 3 generations from pensioners to a 4-month old baby. We had 5 bedrooms, including double and family rooms. They were clean and tidy. We parked up on arrival and didn't touch the car for the whole week. The Doric is across the road... More
