Reviewed October 8, 2012

The wife and I stayed here 5th to the 8th October 2012 with a party of twenty three.
Booking was pre done and all rooms where ready for occupation on arrival,our room was clean, neat and tidy and was cleaned daily. Towels where changed when used.
The time of the year being a little chilly, it was always warm be it lounge, dining room or bedroom
Breakfast had a choice of fruit juice, cereal, porridge,kippers, full English toast tea and coffee. Also at this time we were able to choose our evening meal from the menu.
The staff at this hotel really looked after us. I needed to borrow an extension lead and a mobile phone charger for my stay because of a senior moment when I left home.
I would certainly come back to this friendly and centrally located hotel

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We are glad that your group all had a lovely time with us, and everything was to a high standard. It was lovely to meet you, and I am glad we could help out with the extension lead and mobile phone charger. ( you would be surprised how many guests forget phone chargers! so we have a dozen different ones that we lend out).

I hope you will stay with us again on your next visit to Blackpool.

Best wishes,

Caryn Dickson

having stayed here before 2 years ago we still found the service up to the standard we expected. the warm welcome and helpful information we needed to enjoy the facilities on arrival a clean room and plenty of choice meal wise which accomadated all tastes were lovely. the staff here are very friendly and make you feel more like family rather than guests. it is ideally situated to reach all blackpools amenities. entertainment some evenings and a good drink from the bar. well done to all at adelaide house hotel for making our monday to friday an enjoyable and welcoming break.

Thank you very much for your great review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Adelaide House. It is lovely to hear that the staff made you feel more like family than guests. We have a fantastic team here that not only enjoy their jobs, but also work really well together, and I think it shows when we get comments like that.

I hope you will choose to stay with us again next time you are in Blackpool.

After reading all the reviews on here, i was expecting a very pleasant stay here, and was very disapointed.
Firstly at time of booking i explained we would not arrive until between 9 and 10pm, upon arriving at 9.30pm, it was clear we was not expected by the one member of staff who was working behind the bar. He directed us to the wrong floor, and we was left wondering around with our cases trying to find our room. Also he was unable to direct us to the car park, or even show us on a map where we were, and how to get to the car park.
The family room, while clean, was very very small, the 3/4 bed was tight to a wall, and only a small gap to the single bed against the other wall. Both beds were extremely uncomfy and the matresses were worn out and lumpy.
The bathroom was even smaller, and the toilet was 2 inches from the wall on one side, and 2" from the bath on the other. There was also only one stall and one chair, so when in the room, we had to sit on the bed.
While as stated on here there is plenty of choice for breakfast, the quality was very poor, the bacon was just a fatty piece of streaky bacon, the sausage gross, and the beans were the worst i've tasted. It was so poor, i didn't even go to breakfast on the second day, and when the waiter asked my wife where i was, and then told why i hadn't gone down, just shrugged his shoulders and walked off.
Finally when i went to check out at 10.15am on sunday morning, there was no one at the desk, and after waiting 10 minutes and ringing the bell 3 times, i just left the key and departed.
The welcome friendly service as stated on here, clearly did not exist the weekend we visited, and while i would say this is not the worst hotel i have ever stayed, in certainly was not a good one, and we will not be returning again.

Dear Guest,

I am sorry you were dissappointed with your stay at our hotel. It seems to have started badly with you arriving late and not being given clear instructions to find your room. As for the car parking, we usually give maps and directions to guests on arrival after they have unloaded in the bay outside the hotel. At night most car parks are closed but there is one on our street that is always available. As we are a town centre hotel, the building is over 100 years old and as such, our rooms are all different sizes which we utilise to suit most requirements. We regularly update our rooms including mattresses, and I can assure you that we will be looking at the room you stayed in.

We never compromise on the quality of the food we serve and only ever use 'Heinz Baked Beans' for example. I am sorry if you found the breakfast not up to our usual standards.

Being the owners of a small family run hotel, we are very 'hands on' and do spend alot of time doing many different tasks both during the day and night. I was on duty all day on the Sunday that you checked out and would have been close by, so can only apologise that you had to wait at reception.

Yours sincerely,

Caryn Dickson

On recommendation from my brother, my husband and I stayed for the weekend. The hotel is clean, tastefully decorated lounge and bar and dining room. Staff are very friendly, having a family feel to it. Food is very good with a good choice. The bed was really comfortable. Central location for all amenities. Would certainly stay there again.

I travelled as part of a group that have stayed at the Adelaide for 18 years and know that the organiser wouldnt return if things werent up to scratch ! however i was still surprised at the quality of the accomodation, food and service. i wasnt expecting five star luxury but this exceeded my expectations. the room was clean, bright and tastefully decorated, complimentary toiletries and biscuits along with tea, coffee etc. clean towels daily. i was pleasantly surprised as to the choice and quality of the food offered by the friendly and helpful staff and the location is absolutely perfect being close to all amenities. the fact that the owners are "hands on" and work alongside the staff to maintain standards is obviously the key to their success. i have booked again for next year !

Our fourth year at this hotel and I must say it feels like home. After a long day out in the centre of Blackpool there is nothing nicer than feeling you can put your feet up in the lounge and relax. 'so much so that this year i had forty winks'.
The staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast hits the spot before you start your day, and the evening meals are varied and delicious. What is great is knowing you have a wonderful meal to look forward to after the long journey from Wales.
The hotel is central to the Tower and a vibrant shopping centre. We look forward to spending another long weekend there next September.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your lovely review. I have passed your comments on to our staff. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us again and everything from the meals to the guests comfort was of a high standard. We are in a very good position in town ( infact we couldnt be any closer to all amenities) which is an important factor for guests and I am glad you enjoy how central we are.

We look forward to seeing you again on your next visit!

Best wishes,
