This is THE worst hotel in the WORLD.! Stayed with my Mum for a 2 night B&B for the illuminations on 12th & 13th October 2012. Unfortunately it was booked on a non-refundable basis over the internet (BEFORE we had read Tripadvisor).
The hotel is dirty - everywhere. It is damp and smelly, with falling plaster, gaps between skirting boards and walls, curtains ripped and draughty. The first room we were shown had filthy stains on the walls, holes in the doors, mould on bathroom tiles and windows and not a square corner in the room. We promptly went to reception and bluntly said we wanted a different room and gave the reason why. The receptionist never batted an eyelid, just gave us the key card to a different room. I can only presume that this is a regular occurance. The second room was not much better, but had a nice sea-view. The impression I got from the staff was that they are resigned to the fact that the hotel is a dump, but there is nothing they can do about it.
Breakfast was buffet style. The cheapest ingredients and overcooked. The worrying bit is that a piece of plaster, about 2' square, was loose and flaking just above the buffet counter. God knows what was dropping on to the food.
Evening entertainment. This consisted of a pensioner and a keyboard with a lot of echo on his mic. Now Blackpool must be teeming with talent and aspiring entertainment, so why settle for this?
Couldn't wait to leave and if this is the standard of big hotels in Blackpool, then I certainly won't be going to Blackpool again. Not one of the other guests we spoke to had a good word to say for the place either.
