We stayed at the Canasta Hotel Blackpool just for 2 nights there Saturday until Monday. Last minute booking so we got the last room available which was a triple. Thought this would be a problem with our Son Robert but the room was big enough so he still had his own space. It was a front sea/view with a fab... More

Rude.... Just rude!!!! There are no more words. How this man runs a business is beyond me when he has such a bad attitude towards guests. Would never stay there again & wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. Would much rather give our business to other hotels such as the moorings in gynn square!!

After ringing to enquire about a few rooms for my family to stay in for a few nights, I spoke to the owner Doug who was rude & abrupt from the minute he answered the phone. Having stayed here a few times years ago, that didn't really come as a surprise, but thought we would try to stay again this... More

Sam - I was merely pointing out that our car park was tight and there was no room to wheel a wheelchair between the cars. That's how it is. You explained your sister cant get out of her wheelchair so I was reminding you how tight our car park actually is. Everyone expects parking nowadays and we have to maximise... More

I called to enquire about functions and I was confronted by a person who for one could not simply answer a basic question. On top of this he was extremely rude and couldn't seem to understand the basic idea of customer service and hung up on me. I would not recommend this place to anyone as they are just simply... More

Well I don't remember this...but it is true I don't suffer fools gladly on the telephone. It probably went something like this:- "Do you do wedding functions?" "It depends on the time of year to be honest - what date?" "There will be about 40 of us" "Ok small parties we can cater for - but what date?" "Do you... More

We managed to get a last minute booking for August Bank Holiday, and we are glad we chose The Canasta. The owners and staff are welcoming and so helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. The "Big Brekkie" is just that, very enjoyable but too much for me ( till I realised... More
