We have just enjoyed a 'girlie' weekend at the Grays hotel in BLACKPOOL. We are two 60 somethings so we didn't necessarily want one of the places that caters for the Stag & Hen crowd at weekends, though we did want somewhere convenient for the town centre attractions and Grays seemed to fit the bill after reading several reviews.
The welcome was warm and friendly and we were shown to our 1st floor room immediately. We had booked a twin with en-suite and whilst quite bijou it had everything we could possibly need for our 2 night stay. The two single beds were very comfortable with clean white sheets and duvet covers. A couple of torquoise cushions and throw added a splash colour to the modern decor. It had one bedside chest of drawers with lamp and one cupboard with hanging rail. This also housed an ironing board & iron. There was another chest of drawers upon which was the tea&coffee making paraphernalia and a small digital TV. (We never did find the remote control but managed to figure out the buttons on the set - quite took me back a bit having to get up to switch the TV over! There was a hand basin in the room and the en-suite consisted of toilet and shower cubicle. Perfectly adequate for our needs.
The breakfast was 08.30 to 09.30. We would have preferred a later finish as I do like a lie in at weekends, but we made it on time and it was definitely worth getting up for. Plenty of juice and continental goodies on offer as well as a good menu of cooked food; all included in with the room rate.
On the ground floor there is a decent sized sitting room/TV lounge as well as a separate bar area.
The location is perfect for both seafront and/or the town centre theatres and shops etc.being only a few hundred yards walk in either direction. What more could you want??
