After our previous experience (see our other reviews) we opted to stay down the south end, in Blackpool these hotels seem to have more parking freely available either private or on-street parking...as this is our top priority when deciding on hotel choice. This hotel seemed perfect for our needs ... and we weren't disappointed ... our friends and ourselves booked for two nights.
We had booked two of the three 4 poster bed rooms. Checking-in was simple and greeted professionally. Our room was on the second floor and our friends room was on the first floor, directly below us. There were no lifts, but this didn't cause us a problem, but I am sure if you needed help with your luggage, they would arrange this for you.
We opened the door to our room and was flabbergasted by the cleanliness, the tasteful décor and overall design of the room. We had a seaview with a balcony, plenty of storage with wardrobe and doors and the bathroom was immaculate.
The bed was comfortable, clean and quiet. They came and made the room up whilst we were out on our first day, which we didn't expect and was a welcome gesture.
The only downside, was the water pressure in the shower, that said, the shower was still hot and there was plenty of water.
The hotel is a two minute walk from the Pleasure Beach ... a tram ride away from the Tower and a two minute walk from the local co-op, where you can purchase all-day roaming Tram tickets cheaper than purchased on the tram itself.
Would we come back here? ... Yes we would without any hesitation. We can't comment on the food, as we didn't have any. In general, I wish hotels would supply more of there condiments, I'm sure if we had asked we would of had more. Overall a top scoring hotel :)
