This has to be the worst hotel in Blackpool. This hotel should be advertised as a hostel as they crowd as many beds into the box rooms as they can with some rooms having tiny shower rooms and others using communal facilities.
On arrival at the hotel we were greeted by a very rude manager, informed that although advertised as parking facilities all 3 spaces were full. We found a car park near by at £13.50 for the night then went to check in.
The hotel is in desperate need of modernising and has a strange smell. The room we stayed in had wall paper peeling badly, with dirty, sticky carpets, paper thin walls and the door is secured by a flimsy Yale lock that did not feel safe. We stayed with a large group of others and all rooms were of the same less than basic standard. We decided to go out for a drink and thought well 'it's a bed for the night'. Our room squeezed in 5 girls with 3 single beds and a bunk bed. The mattresses were terrible and need replacing. Our friends had a double sized bed room with 5 bed squeezed into theirs too.
The hotel is in reasonable location but so are many more hotels.
On returning to the hotel at 3am after a great night out the hotel was in full swing as the bar was open and music on. We went up to our rooms for the night thinking the bar would close shortly. At 7am which we thought was a more than reasonable time to ask and after no sleep we complained about the music and rowdy guests thinking they would say it was finishing shortly. Instead we were rudely told it was a party hotel. The party then finished at 8.40am. We all like a good night out but this was ridiculous.
The hotel provides breakfast for an additional £5 but the rooms were so poor and dirty there was no way we would eat in this hotel.
There a far better basic b&b in Blackpool which Ive stayed with the girls on hen weekends and have never had to write a poor review. This hotel was by far the dirtiest and worst I have come across.
I would not visit this hotel again.
