The Good Bit:
Booked this hotel on Friday 23rd for Sat & Sun night stay (Bank Holiday Weekend). We paid £85 per room per night for a double & a family including breakfast & evening meal. This was excellent value - shop around the sites, some were selling at over £120 per PERSON, breakfast only. The hotel was OK. Had I paid anything more I would have been dissappointed.
The evening meal was typical of an inclusive rate, small portions & limited choice but the service was very good (perhaps a little slow) and we were allowed things not on the menu such as cheese & biscuits instead of dessert.
The bar prices were reasonable considering this is a 3* hotel quite far from other bars. Unfortunately no atmosphere.
Free pool table in the games room - IT Box & Bandit didn't work though!
Car Park: Spaces limited, there is a p&d next door however which is only £5.50 for 72hrs & there's free on street parking.
The room: 1st floor, 109 - the room above was VERY VERY creaky. From 5.11am for over 3hours is sounded like ten people were trotting around the bed above us - impossible to sleep through - HONESTLY!! The family room, 111 (double, bunk & a single) also suffered from the noise above though when we checked with reception the were told the room above was empty. Strange as their bathroom was water logged from the one upstairs leaking.
The bathroom: Shower was absolutely boiling, didn't seem to be anything we could do to turn the heat down.
Entertainment: I checked with the hotel before booking if there was evening entertainment, I was told there was & it was suitable for children. The entertainment was an organist. Not very entertaining for 10 & 14 year old boys!
Staff in general were welcoming & helpful. I'd go back, at the reduced rate, but feel very sorry for the people paying a ridiculous amount of money to stay in an average hotel quite far from Blackpool centre, (£7.50 in taxi to Central Pier).
