“Best Hotel in Blackpool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2009

We have just returned from the Craimar Hotel after staying for the New Year festivities. This is our second time staying at this hotel and as before it was fantastic. Craig and Paula can not do enough for you they are the life and soul of the party, they always make sure that your every need is catered for, nothing is too much trouble.

The hotel is excellently furnished and decorated, very, very modern, the bar area is lovely, big plasma telly with music playing all the time. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the food is to die for. .

This is THE best hotel in Blackpool and would recommend to everyone young and old. It is excellently located right near the coral island and shopping centre, and I WILL definitely be staying again.

We stayed for new year with four other friends. It was the best time weve had in years.The hotel was spotless the food was fantastic. Craig and Paula were the best host weve ever met doing everything they could to make our stay the best ever.They had entertainment on both nights we stayed,one being Jason who was brilliant. We are definatly going back and have already asked some other friends to go with us for new year,which we are booking next week.We would all like to thank Craig and Paula for everthing they did to make our stay fantastic and look forward to seeing them soon.

Had such a great stay at this hotel, I felt compelled to write this review. First of all, the Craimar hotel is in such a good location, famous coral island amusements about 50 steps away and the Tower is just round the corner.

When me and the family arrived we were given a warm welcome by the owners Craig and Paula, who give off a really nice vibe and make you feel like you've known them for ages!!

Right , to the stuff that matters .

Our room (en suite) was nice and spacious, but most importantly it was spotless . We also had the added bonus of a plasma telly on the wall! Good for keeping the kids quiet!

The bar really impressed me. Very modern and stylish, not to mention with good prices.

The dining room is very nice and the full english breakfast was cooked to perfection each morning.

I would highly recommend this hotel to families and couples. It is extremely well run and well maintained, and the owners are very friendly and helpful. We will definetly book with them again when returning to blackpool.
