Got a very good welcome by the owners Pat and Steve room was excellent NO damp in any rooms we entered as complained by someone else think they must have stayed else where as the hotel room was excellent and we were very impressed by the quality of all the hotel and all the staff were really friendly and of course loved Steve's bar below hotel very good for a nice drink and friendly chat with Steve himself also we thank him again for the free birthday drink ! which was very nice.
Breakfast was very good and had lots of different food to choose from.
Thanks for making our stay a very happy one and will defently be staying again in the new year and will be bringing our friends and family down next time too. and we are already looking forward to it . Thanks again Pat and Steve.

Regards.

Having stayed in a few hotels in blackpool over the years for my daughters dancing I came across the Alumnhurst hotel by chance after not being able to get booked up at the BB where i stayed the year before. I booked the hotel for four families with four different room types and everyone was great , nice white bedding,comfy beds and nice pillows just what you need for a good night sleep after a long day in the Winter gardens. Pat and Steve where very accomadating when we asked for breakfast a little earlier so we could get an early start. Staff were very pleasant and nothing was a problem even when my daughter was being fussy on how she likes her toast done. We all had a lovely weekend and will be returning in April. Thanks.

Room Tip: rooms on the back are quieter just because you get no street noise

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Alumhurst. This was our first stay but will certainly not be our last. The hotel was warm, beds really comfy, and room clean. Breakfast was lovely and set us up for the day. Hosts Pat and Steve were excellent.All in all excellent value for money.
We will return!

Just had a great weekend in Blackpool at the Alumhurst hotel. Can only imagine 47libby s review was about another hotel as our experience was of a friendly welcome from pat the owner allowing us to park on the drive even though we were nt due to book in till one we arrived at ten in the morning. After spending the day at the pleasure beach, freezing cold but fun, we booked into our rooms which were spotless clean warm and comfortable the bed was was very comfortable and after a good nights sleep we went for breakfast in the very nicely laid out and decorated dining room the breakfast and staff serving was first class 5 stars all round .Thankyou.

We arrived at Alumhurst and within minutes a friendly women was stood on the steps smiling, we quickly found out her name as she introduced herself as Pat and helped us park our car. Alumhurst provided us with a lovely warm comfortable room, wonderful hot showers and big white fluffy towels - the bed was comfortable and the room was spotless...

We celebrated our friends 49th wedding anniversary on our weekend( there were twenty of us ) and our friends had chosen the hotel and arranged half board. We were not disappointed, the food was lovely home cooked and fresh, I had a lovely rhubarb crumble and custard-so compliments to the chef. The staff were friendly and we enjoyed lovely drinks in the bar, played darts and pool and listened to the jukebox after spending a couple of hours out dancing at the Stanley Road club. We had a memorable time and hope to return again with our friends to what we consider to be a warm friendly welcoming hotel with lovely home cooked food.
Best Wishes,
Lesley and Robert xx

I would first like to say that as soon as we walked into the hotel we could smell the damp. Up to the room we went to be greeted by wallpaper hanging off the walls black mould in the corner and down the window sides and sills, covered in black mould. Windows were streaming with water and the nets were just dangling in the mess.
Towels were clean bedding was clean heating went off during the night at the coldest time of our stay and the beds were uncomfortable. £95 for two adults and two children, what can i say anymore and we would have walked, good job we were not intending to stay in the room long.
Breakfast was ok but nothing out of the ordinary just the usual on small plates made to look large.
The host well again what can i say just a little brash and forward but as long as you agreed with her i assume you would be ok.
I still can't get that smell out of my head or my nose surely people could smell the damp and see the damp conditions in the rooms.
I DID HOWEVER NOTICE A SIGN STATING SMOKING WAS ALLOWED ON CERTAIN FLOORS!!!! VERY STRANGE !!!!!!!!!!!
Lastly, i would have hated to see this place before it was upgraded my oh my!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Please check that the damp situation is sorted before you go as this will ruin your stay if it has b...

Not abso;utely sure where you were staying whilst you were in Blackpool but it wasn't here. We don't have any rooms with wallpaper hanging off or with black mould growing on the walls. You also quoted the wrong price for your room. You didn't say anything about any of these problems while you were here and quite franky I am mystified.
