Went to Blackpool for a friends birthday and needed a nice well priced hotel for two nights. The Alumhurst scored well on Trip Advisor and didn't disappoint. The location is very convenient - a 15 minute walk from the train station and situated 5 minutes from the sea front and the central pier. It's also very close to the main shopping centre and the Tower, as well as being close to bars and restaurants in the town.
As 3 couples we all booked independently but the hotel recognised that we were together and put us in to 3 rooms next door to each other, which was the first sign of how friendly this hotel is.
The room was clean, warm and had tea and coffee making facility. There is a bar in the basement which is great, and Steve is very friendly and will while away the hours chatting with you as you drink your very reasonably priced drinks!
Breakfast is good as it offers a choice of cereals and various cooked options, along with plenty of juice, tea and coffee. The serving staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble.
We had a brilliant weekend with a friend who had never been to Blackpool before. I was so pleased that the accommodation didn't disappoint and neither did Blackpool, which is a great place to have a weekend of fun. I would definitely stay here again and recommend that any friends stay here.
