Having booked a premier room it was lovely. The hotel is run by nice people and was made welcome. Nice breakfast and lots of it. I have booked to stay there again in September as it was that good. Good location for shops, pubs and night life.

This was my second visit to this hotel. Kevin and Mark clearly take pride in ensuring their guests are welcomed and provided with a clean, friendly and comfortable place to stay in Blackpool. Blackpool has had a lot of regeneration work done to the seafront areas making it great for a stroll before getting ready for a nice evening out,... More

Stayed at hotel 12th - 15th August. On arriving later than planned we were greeted and shown to the Frank Sinatra room. We noticed that entrance, corridor and stairs were all clean. The room was spotless and had loads of storage space and towels etc. Mark and Kevin were friendly and welcoming throughout stay. Breakfast was amazing and was enough... More

Couldn't ask for anything more. Kevin and Mark are great hosts who go the extra mile for their customers. Made me feel welcome all throughout my stay. Room was spotless and had all the essentials. Will definitely be returning in the near future. Thanks again.

Stayed in the Mama Mia room very well appointed with everything you could need . The owners are very hospitable & welcoming with nothing too much trouble. Breakfast is well cooked and well presented and efficiently served. I could not recommend a stay here more

I arrived on Friday 8th July and was as always met by the lovely owners. Check in was faultless and I was given a room on the top floor at the back left hand side. This room was not themed like many others in this spotlessly clean hotel. The room was about 10 feet square with an en-suite shower /... More

Making a return visit to Chaps was once again perfect in every way. Kevin and Mark run a fabulous hotel and put others in the shade. We stayed in the Judy Garland room on ground floor and we had a perfect stay, no noise experienced and had a perfect nights sleep. Ground floor rooms can sometimes be a concern in... More

We visit Chaps every year and the guys never disappoint. Clean, friendly, great value... what's not to like? Easy walking distance to the North and Central piers, and a gentle stroll to Blackpool's unique nightlife.

So I should start with a little disclaimer! I don't really like Blackpool very much. It took quite a lot of persuasion to get me to return last weekend. Going to Blackpool is like stepping back in time to a bygone age (and not a quaint little one like a trip to Beamish) to a place which the world has... More
