Although it would be hard to fault our barman this is all i find to recomend this hotel.We had an extremly small room clean i must admit but out dated.To say the food was poor i think would not be doing the frozen food industry justice.If you like fresh cook frozen food this is the place for you.Any body in the bar during the day was hit and miss and at one point the even ran out of beer.We will not be going again.

I found this hotel to be a mixed bag.On the plus side I had no problem with my room I was placed in a twin room on my own so there was plenty of space.The staff were all great apart from Alan the manager.I found the location to be right at the heart of Blackpool so just about perfect.However on the negative side Alan was about as much use as a chocolate fireman.Whilst we were there a woman fell through her chair at dinner, Alan tried to place the blame on her.The fact of the matter was the chair was fault & everyone in the dinning room knew it.Somebody else got stuck in the lift for ten minutes & was just ignored.The christmas dinner & the rest of the meals were very poor.I had to purchase a packet of Rennies on Boxing Day.Also the double room that my dad & his partner stayed in was smaller than my twin room by quite a lot.I will be going elsewhere if I go to Blackpool again.

We stayed 4 of us for two nights and were joined by 4 more friends on the second night. We all enjoyed the stay, very clean rooms and an excellent breakfast. Bash the Barman come waiter made us feel very welcome. Great location for town, definitely to be recommended.

we arrived on fri afternoon,,, our booking didnt include breakfast but it was not a problem for us,,, very near to town,rooms were clean and comfortable,,always had hot water,, everyone was exceptionally friendly ,, nothing was a problem for them,on hand at all times, our only dissapointment was that it had a dance floor and a bar ,,but when you came in from a night out it was closed,, other guests had arrived by 11.30 to find the bar locked up so we couldnt socialise with the other guests we sat out side on the steps to converse... but overall we had a great time ,want to go back maybe for a bit longer...will be booking again..x

Looked at the reviews on line and overall had good reviews, However, they were over-rated, for me this hotel needs an update in all areas and basic room maintenance needs attention.

Whilst I appreciate that guest houses do not have a reception, I would hope that first impressions would mean something, regretably not here. I do not appreciate someone answering the door, looking like they have just got up after a sleep on the couch. On arrival the foyer had an awful smell and I appreciate what you pay is what you get I would expect bathroom shelving to be level, grouting to be mould free and have hot water available.

Most of the guests seemed to be on a bed and breakfast basis. Full breakfast needs attention, I was the first in for breakfast and the bacon was like leather. (It takes very little time to grill/ bacon to order).

All I can say is a good location for walking distance to town centre.
