I'm not one to write reviews but thought that it was appropriate to warn others about this place to avoid having to go through what i went through and ruining your holiday. Stayed here with my friends and disgusted is not even the word that describes this place. The room was filthy. The bedding was musty and the curtains were... More

Stayed here for a hen do and wasn't very impressed. The room was small and had peeling wallpaper where damp was coming through. We didn't have a shower and there was no hot water in the communal shower we were given to use. No lager on tap had to drink cans. Was very disappointed and would not return.

I can only agree with the other reviews, this hotel is not so great. As advertised, I expected a full English breakfast. However, I was served nothing and was expected to pay money in a local cafe for my breakfast, I believe this is unacceptable as I paid for what I was advertised. My room was another matter, Their was... More

Reading the recent reviews from last year, it looks as if this Party Hotel was good value if you were on a budget. Stayed three nights recently with no hot water for two of them, a toilet that didn't flush, a filthy Kettle in the room with no Cups or Tea or Coffee ??? non existent morning breakfast and the...

Me and some mates came down for the weekend and stayed here as we stayed last year and had a great time! The place is now completely different. They wanted to please us but couldn't offer resolutions for any of the problems. It's ok offering excuses for why things aren't working but it doesn't make the issues go away. Our... More

Filthy hotel. Looks like a hostel. Booked through awesome weekends and for the price we paid we expected a lot more. We didn't get breakfast in the hotel. No working shower in the room. Tv wasn't working. Good location but that's the only positive about this hotel. It is in need of a complete make over.

Stayed here on a last minute trip to Blackpool with a couple of friends and booked through booking.com. Booked to reserve parking via the website but when we arrived, we were told that the spaces were all full and that we would have to find somewhere to park that would either cost a fair bit or be a fair walk...
