“Do Not Stay Here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2009

My friend and I was staying for one night thank god. Now we requested a smoking room which they gave us but with NO ASHTRAY. Two young girls staying in a hotel you would think they would have a lock on the door not here they didn't. I slept with one eye open. The TV had 2 channels, radio didn't work, beds two lumpy, wardrobe couldn't get into cause of bed, decor didn't match 3 walls all different, Lamp on wall didn't work, Window didn't lock, toilet didn't flush and room too small. Wish we had left but we had paid and it was late at night to go searching. Daughter needs to get some Customer Service techniques. Just horrible horrible hotel should of slept in car. More comfortable and at least the doors locked.

we arrived at the oakwell hotel for a family room which consisted of a double bed and a bed on floor for my 13 yr old daughter (was told it was a put up bed), we asked for a bigger family room and the owner took us to another room that was ok if u didnt have a cat to swing....wardrobe was dirty inside so we left and went to another hotel. newly married friends of ours were also staying at the oakwell and when they left with us the owners daughter was very abusive. the rooms are way too small and not as clean as they should be but the worst about it was the abuse we suffered because the hotel was not suitable, a lot of scottish ppl go to blackpool as we do often, will never recommend the oakwell to anyone

party of 11 stayed in july 08 charged £30 per person although stated £25 on web site excuse was the more that book the more you pay so if there is a few of you avoid the (OAKWELL HOTEL) also was given bunkbeds and double beds to share. the tiny bar closed early and only served bottled beer which was more exspensive than the night clubs the breakfast was served on a sourcer it was that small and not very warm, there was boilers under the room so it was way to hot and that noisy did'nt get any sleep, rooms was,nt the cleanest came back on the night a bit late-ish and had the owner shout her mouth off at us named her the Rottweiler.we have stayed in blackpool about 20 times and the (OAKWELL HOTEL) was the the most exspensive by far and very disappointing so would not recommend and will avoid in the future

  • Liked — checkout time
  • Disliked — whole hotel plus way to far from amenities had to use taxis
