“Very Well done”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

Having booked a family room we were greeted by Pearl who showed us to our room, not a bad size room compared to other Blackpool's hotels standard rooms that we've stayed in.
The room was extremely clean & the hotel well decorated, bathroom was clean & tidy overall the accommodation was pretty comfortable.

Both John & Pearl were extremely helpful in helping us book a meal & a show & bent over backwards to make sure our stay was comfortable despite the antics of some other guests.
A bunch of drunk women whom had no consideration for anyone else in the hotel should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves, clattering about during the early hours outside our room was an absolute disgrace, how John didn't put them out in the middle of the night I've no idea he certainly had the patience of a saint & did his utmost to try & quieten things down for the rest of us staying at the hotel.

Breakfast was typically a Blackpool breakfast plenty of cereal, toast & coffee the full English was just that full English well cooked & presented & hit the spot keeping us going till dinner time.

Overall apart from the idiots that just happen to have been in at the same time the stay was extremely comfortable, our hosts couldn't have done anymore in my opinion to make our stay enjoyable, this hotel is certainly a bit of a hidden gem amongst the trawls of other hotels Blackpool offers.

We were given the family room located at the top of the building. The bathroom was spotless, however the same could not be said for the room itself. Spillages and hair in all the top drawers, cobwebs on lights and dirty earplugs on the floor.

Breakfast was nice, 1 sausage, 1 rasher bacon, 1 egg, beans and hashbrown. The only problem was you were not allowed to swap an unliked item for another ie beans for 2 hashbrowns - only allowed to go without what you didn't like.

Hosts were friendly and hospitable, however I didn't like being asked to pay within 2 minutes of arrival

This review is not for our Amethyst Hotel, we have no record of this person/s staying here.
All our guests are asked what they would like for Breakfast, and our rooms are spotlessly cleaned at all times, we also have regular anonymous overnight stays from Visit England
and im sure that if this person was correct with these complaints we would not have a 4****
RATING.

Amethyst hotel was a complete gem of a hotel! my partner and i thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! the rooms were traditional but quirky, elegant and above all comfortable. unlike the hotels we are used to the owners of the hotel made us feel at home straight away! always their to give advice on where to go to eat, drink, have fun and best places to shop!
we felt comfortable enough to spend the last few hours of our evening (early next morning) in the bar with the owners! such a lovely couple.
highly recommend the hotel and well worth the money! we definately will be returning, along with the family! as the hotel caters for all!
but next time we will definately stay for longer!
thank you pearl and jon for a wonderful stay!

We recently stayed at Amethyst Hotel Blackpool. When I made the telephone booking I was offered a choice of room, I chose the Gold Room. But we werent given the room when we arrived, I was disappointed but say anything as I didnt want to make a fuss. Then when speaking to other guests we found out they had been charged £25 each person per night, they had paid £100 for 2 people on a 2 night stay. Yet we had been charged £30 each person per night.? Which totalled £120? For the same 2 nights? We had paid £20 more? than the other guests. Also the Gold Room which I had booked was occupied by other guests.

OWNERS RESPONCE.
Dear Sue
First of all you were not promised room 3 (Gold Room) as this room was allready booked by a regular weeks before.
You mentioned that the couple you were discussing prices with had paid less, the reason for that is they had booked on line before we had chance to change prices for new years eve,we charge £25. all year round surely you can't grumble at an extra £5 for new years eve
We even gave you (a couple) a large family room, you also thanked us on leaving saying you had enjoyed your stay even Mick (your partner) said he would definately come back to the Amethyst

only stopped one night when booked over the phone was promised a parking space
when we arrived was told they had given the space too someone who was stopping longer which at first felt like we had been lied too to get the booking as a parking space in blackpool is vital during the illuminations
but to be fair the owner swappped and chnged to accomodate the car of ours
the hotel is clean and tidy we had the family room and was absolute just what you need clean well decorated and ensuite was also clean
the location is about 5 minutes walk too the seafront
the breakfast was of good quality and well cooked my only gripe for me personally was that there was not enough 1 sausage ,1 slice of bacon,hash brown,egg,beans and tomatoes
we only went for the children to experience the illuminations
its not really our kind of destination but if by any miracle we went back too blackpool we would stop again
