“great time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

we stayed at wave crest for a night it was perfect... i just saw these reveiws and don't agree with them... we were welcomed by a very friendly guy who was happy to advise us where to go and got us taxi's there. The rooms were clean and plenty big enough for 4 girls, they had teles with freeveiw, the bed was soo comfy and towels were lovely and soft. The hotel has parking behind which was a great help. The breakfast was lovely and available at a good time so we could have a lie in. Would definately stay again and reccomend to friends all in all 10/10 i'd say.

This hotel is for stag and hen do's and young people looking for a good night out in blackpool. Im 20 and recently visited this hotel for a friends birthday. We had a mixture of rooms, some modern and some old. The modern rooms were lovely and clean with a flat screen tv with freeview on the wall, definately worth the money, however the older rooms werent as nice. The staff were very accomodating and friendly. There is a bar in the basement of the hotel which is kept open as long as people want it open! This was brilliant for people on parties like us however i understand may have caused an issue for others with younger children or wanting an early night in the hotel. All in all we had a brilliant time and i will hopefully be returning in the near future with some friends but will definately request a modernised room!

We were a party of 9 people age range from 20 - 55, there for a 21st birthday. The Golf Open was on and we struggled to get a hotel, one hotel owner told us that any hotel that we could get at this short notice would be a dive!! However we eventually found four rooms at the Wave Crest Hotel and were pleased to find out that this hotel is far from being ' a dive'

The hotel is centrally placed and the rooms are gradually all being refurbished, we had a mix of newly decorated and old rooms and all were clean and comfortable.

There was a stag night and a hen night party at the hotel and although everyone was in great spirits there was no real noise or any trouble. In fact the stag night party made our stay as they were such great fun in the bar that we did not get to bed until 4am!! (Poor Owner Phil and the Barman who kept the bar open late for us) Thanks Lads and Happy Wedding Day to Chris and Lucy! from Mommy Sue and party.

The owners Phil and his wife were so accommodating, they even let us into our room early as my daughter was feeling ill on arrival and this allowed her to sleep and then enjoy the rest of the night. Excellent service!

We parked up the car early and walked to the South Pier and Pleasure Beach ( you now have to pay to go into the pleasure beach which is a shame as I don't want to go on the rides and I didn't want to pay £5 to watch!)

The new promenade along the front is great to walk along and sit and people watch. Our young sters went into the dungeon show (by the tower entrance) because we had 2 for 1 tickets. They really raved about it, said the actors were great and they loved the ride.

Walking out at night and bar crawl was an eyeopener I have never Laughed, Danced and Sang so much! The sights of the stags and hens were fantastic, we saw no trouble and no real police presence.

Overall a fantastic weekend at a great reasonably priced hotel with great service and company. Thanks to all from the Browns and the Hardings.

Stayed one night ,with a group, the place was gross,room was small & dingy ,bathroom, toilet YUKk !!!! Toilet seat was broken,and loo roll holder ,shower very dated , We paid £29 per person (£58 per room !!!) If i had paid £20 per room I would have expected these conditions, but not at this price ! Yes we heard the same story from from the owner when we arrived ,had a lot of problems,yawn ! yawn ! place being refurbished (looks like he's been telling the same story to all the guests for the last 2 years !!! ?) The bed I slept on was just springs ,you could actually see them popping out ,carpet was sticky, definitely would not recommend for families !

room was very small and bed was tiny for a double bed,decor not brilliant,tv did not work at all.bathroom was clean and tidy and quite modern,service staff at breakfast 1 was very blunt and was going to refuse breakfast until the owner rectified the situation,bar was very comfortable and accomodating.the owner tried his utmost to make guests welcome and tried to sort out as many problems as he could,but there are only so many things 1 person can do and he needed help from somewhere and wasnt getting any thats why the title is what it is,we thought he was a genuine guy and hope he gets the help he needs ,otherwise he will find it even harder to keep getting regular guests.good luck.

Room Tip: i would probably say 1 ovenight stay is bareable at the present time until things are sorted out pro...
