Me and 2 friends stayed here after reading trip advisor reviews of another Blackpool Hotel we had booked (The Grand Beach) - this hotel has bed bugs, stay clear. Anyway! I sent the owner (Dave) an email to ask if there was anything he could do to help us out and he has seriously gone out of his way to... More

3 of us stayed here for one night in May. Ideal location to Blackpool night life and Blackpool itself. Car park just opposite which is good, rooms were basic but your only there to sleep for the night. Lovely breakfast on a morning which was included in the price. I would stay here again. All staff lovely and friendly

When we got there ended up with one quad room amd three twins..because other quad room had been closed.... More

Everytime we go to Blackpool, we stay at the GR8 Hotel. The staff are really friendly and they join in the fun. There is a music room which is being played all day so it gets you in the mood for a party. I must say, there is plenty of hot and cold food and drink to eat at breakfast... More

I'd be lying if I said this was a really good hotel and gave it high ratings because it's not. But at the same time its not really meant to be, it's a cheap hotel that's good for budget stays (I'd stayed with a group of about 20 people on a stag do). The service was ok and the rooms... More

Was in Blackpool on a friends stag do and only needed a bed for the night. This spot ticked all the boxes. Good location, good price, decent sized rooms and a decent breakfast. Staff seemed friendly enough and the drinks were reasonably priced at the hotel bar. Our group was around 20 strong and all seemed happy with it. I... More

An excellent couple of days on a Stag weekend. We were not looking for anything expensive or luxurious, and its certainly not luxurious but it was adequate, cleaner and friendly staff. Breakfast was okay but after a good night on beer, more would have been welcome. Fairly central to town centre and night life, yet far enough away to get... More
