Draft through the window so poor nights sleep. Over all rate this hotel 1 out of 5 stars just as... More

What this person forgets to mention is they were not supposed to be in the hotel at all! The were let in by other guests, did not pay to stay in the room and when I went into the room the next morning to clean it I found 2 random people. Of course they were asked to leave! Had you... More

Our stay at the northern star was lovely. Carl and Brendan were really welcoming, very knowledgeable about the Blackpool night life and made us feel like we've been friends with them for years. The rooms were clean and I could tell they have been recently re-decorated. The only bad point about the room was that the TV had no satellite... More

Nothing was to much trouble! We were shown to our twin room which was very clean with tea/coffee facilitie and hot shower. The bar area is great comprising... More

A first visit to this hotel, great location and fantastic value. From what I understand, the new owners have made some great improvements since taking over this month with more to come in the near future. Rooms are clean and comfortable, breakfast has a great selection of food, including a well portioned full English breakfast, nothing is too much trouble... More

Myself and 4 friends stayed at the Northern star for a night out at funny girls. The location was perfect, when we'd finished dancing the night away it was seconds until bed.

Stayed here for one night. I was charged a £5 supplement because I was only staying one night! The hotel was empty! A £5 supplement is not a good idea when it comes to customer satisfaction, service and word of mouth recommendations. The single bed (room 8), is fit for the skip. The breakfast is good; cereal, fruit juice, toast... More

You booked by phone, I explained it to you then and asked if you would still like to book - you did. This surcharge enables us to provide low... More
