Certificate of Excellence

Family of grandparents and two teenage boys and we can't speak highly enough about the Craimar. Craig, Paula and family were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was very nice and at a good time. The hotel is situated in an ideal location very near to the tower and a couple of minutes walk away from Coral Island. The rooms were very well cleaned and very nice with tea/coffee/hot chocolate making facilities and freeview TV. The bar is also very good with a large TV and a pool table that is kept in excellent condition. Will look forward to staying again either the next year or the year after if we come to blackpool.

My wife,grandson and myself spent three lovely days and nights in this little peach of an hotel. Read the reviews....they say it all. Great hosts, room, food, prices location and spotless clean. We're going back to Blackpool later this year and I've already reserved the rooms. I can't ever see us staying anywhere else now.

I stayed at the Criamar with two friends for the IFS'10 at the Winter Gardens.
Craig and Paula were lovely and could not have done more to make us feel at home. The newly refurbished rooms on the top floor are lovely, the room was very clean and comfortable.
We checked in late on the Friday night, which didn't seem to be a problem. We also had an early start on the Saturday and Craig was up cooking breakfast for us at 7am "what a star". The Craimar is literally a 5 minute walk from the Winter Gardens which was great after 7 hours of aerobics.
Also they have access to a secure car park for a small charge per night.
We will be booking up for the IFS'11 and will definately return to The Craimar, looking forward to it!

I regularly visit the hotel with my girlfriend and as always,a pleasure to stay with Craig and Paula who run the hotel.The rooms have been recently refurbished and are always spotless and a warm welcome is always guaranteed-you are yards away from the centre of the town and yet it is quiet and peaceful in the hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our break

The Craimer has the best hosts in Paula & Craig - they made us feel so very welcome and ran a very lovely b&b - the rooms were contemporary and beautifuly decorated. The Bar catered for all tastes and almost made us not want to go out! The breakfast was huge, filling and tasty. We will only ever stay here now hen we go to blackpool - no other place could compete - brilliant place thanks for having us all.

A large group of us stayed at the Craimar for 2 nights for a Ballroom competition on 27th February. The staff at Craimar were very friendly and were very efficient so we could get to our rooms very quickly. Breakfast was provided and it was nice to see a small range of options depending on what we felt like. The rooms were comfortable and clean and nobody had any issues. On the day we needed to leave, the Craimar kindly let our group leave our luggage in their hotel so we could go out and explore Blackpool, unlike some which require you to leave sharply in the morning. Overall, the stay was very pleasant and all members of our group enjoyed it. We hope to return again next year!

I have stayed in Blackpool on numerous locations and the accommodation has always varied from average to functional.
But this little gem of a hotel is by far the best I have stayed in. Our rooms were all clean, spotless and well appointed.
The service was excellent and nothing was any trouble for the staff. The breakfast was excellent and even the big guys in our group didn't leave the table felling hungry !!
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is thinking of staying in Blackpool and members of our group are already planning return trips with their partners / wives.
We would like to keep this little secret to ourselves but Paula and Craig deserve the business for providing us with such a high standard of service.
