I've stayed in a few over the years at Blackpool and to be fair to this one it was the largest and cleanest I've been. I went with a group of friends and on check in the man seemed a bit concerned we were a same sex group. We'd booked online and I don't think it'd normally be allowed. However... More

We decided to stay here as we had looked at some other places in Blackpool which were terrible and this one was clean. The room was rather dated, flowery wallpaper, striped carpet and checked bedding! The furniture was a complete mish mash which included a lounge unit and a telephone table! The four poster bed looked very dodgy it seemed... More

When we initially decided to eat at the Gurkha, the area didn't look very inviting, but what a hidden gem this turned out to be, the food and the staff were excellent & very friendly, & nobody rushes you. Okay, admittedly buffet style meals don't appeal to everyone, but if you leave there hungry it's your own fault. The main... More

This was our second visit. We stayed back in November 2014 with two children and it was just as good the second time round. We arrived around 8.45pm and was greeted by two members of staff who were very nice. The rooms are basic and need an update to the decor but the rooms are nice, clean and very comfortable.... More

The room was very clean and had lots of space. All the staff are polite and very helpful. The rooms are cheap. Worth every bit of money we paid. Would 100% stay again and would recommend it to anyone staying in blackpool.
