“What a brilliant stay we had.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2008

My grandchildren and myself along with a friend I cared for have just come back from the Savoy Hotel Blackpool after a 5 day break. I had read some of the reviews and was a bit apprehensive but we had an excellent time. The rooms were roomy, very, very clean with maid service, so clean towels and a general tidy-up was had every day. The room was a standard room (the hotel's description) and had adequate hanging and drawer space, and clean and comfortable beds. The en-suite was very clean with step-in bath and overhead shower. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly and the General Manager was very approachable. The restaurant staff were very obliging and again helpful and friendly. My granddaughter (aged 16) is a vegetarian and asked for a veggie breakfast which was accommodated every morning with the help of reception, the General Manager and the chef!!! They all went out of their way to make sure Emily ate well. In fact on Thursday evening the chef turned a starter into a main course with her suggestion - leaving out the ham and expanding on the dish.
We all would like to thank the hotel for a brill stay and beware we will be back!!! Thanks to all concerned on what was a very full hotel week. xx

We booked at the Savoy Hotel for my father's 65th birthday. The day before, we were told we'd been transferred to the Norbreck Castle, a dingy hotel, further from the town centre.

We'd been transferred from non-smoking to smoking rooms.

After some argument, we were instead transferred to the Metropole, a nicer hotel, and enjoyed our stay.

Nevertheless, I wouldn't recommend booking this hotel. From our experience, there's no guarantee you'll actually stay here.

We have just stayed at the savoy for the bank holiday weekend.
The room 106 was in dire need of maintenance.
The room although recently decorated had wallpaper coming down from the ceiling, the curtain pelmets were also hanging down and worse was the window in the bedroom it had no handles and had been sealed shut with ducktape.
window handles were also missing on the bathroom window.
Upon using the spa bath this produced a dirty brown scum obviously due to the jets not being sanitised on a regular basis.
There was also a sticker next to the bathroom mirror stating that shaver adaptors were available at the reception - pointless as there was not a shaver socket in either the bathroom or bedroom!
On the second night of our stay we were awakened at 4am due to some very drunk guests banging and kicking our door.
We paid £100.00 per night on a bed and breakfast rate, after seeing the state of the room we decided not to eat breakfast at the hotel, so can't write a review about the food.
This is our second booking with Brittania hotels and can honestly say it is the last !!!!

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!

Main Problems:
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).

We (married couple) have just got back from this hotel having spent Saturday night there. We got a 'deal' on line which wasn't too bad, but we got a bit jittery having read some of the awful reviews this place got.

To be honest it was adequate for what we needed...just about. It was clean enough and we even got a car parking spot at the hotel, but there was a huge car park across the road in case we hadn't. The management could do with taking some pride in the exterior of the hotel as the remnants of corporate flags flying don't give the best first impression. It's a grand old building which is showing it's age in places but has had some refurbishment.. albeit cosmetic.

Our room was adequate although I wouldn't like to have had to spend too long in it. The toilet/shower was spotless, and toilet roll - less and towel - less for about 3 hours despite being told the room was ready. We eventually got these sent up after 3 phone calls. The room was also unbearably warm with no way of getting the temp dowm, likewise the shower was uncontrollable and remained v.hot despite altering the controls. We ended up in an internal room which had frosted glass windows and a lovely view of an air con generator. This 'hummed' constantly all the time so we couldn't even have a window open.

Still...... the continental brekkie was good as was the spa bath....

my family and i stayed at the Savoy in september 2007 as my eldest son was competeing in a competition from his college in the national finals. As a treat for my disabled mother and father I treated them to a couple of days stay here along with myself and my youngest son, by a treat I meant not a B & B. But to be quite honest we would have been better off in a good quality B & B rather than the savoy, all we had was a catalogue of bad service, dirty rooms, unsuitable rooms and unhelpfull staff.
My mother is disabled and finds walking far very hard, so where did they give them a room, on the 4th floor as far away from the lift as you could possibly get ( when it was working), the room was dark, dingy and unclean. My dad ordered a sandwich from room service on the thursday night and as far as we could tell the plate is probably still there, even with numerous calls to room service the plate wasnt moved during our stay. My sons and his girlfriend were put in a room with the view of a brick wall and was dirty, the bed was stained and it was cold. Our room although it was pleasant compared with the other rooms, had no toilet roll in the room for the whole of our stay dispite numerous complaints, the bathroom was full of mould, the towels were damp, the shower temperature was far to hot and couldnt be altered.
Breakfast time wasnt much better the restaurant was far to warm although the food was reasonable, there were queues for everything and the tables werent cleared. The bar staff were rushed off their feet and no one came to help them, they even had to cope with dealing with room service.

All in all I was totally disappointed, wouldnt recommend it to my worst enemy.

Stayed September 2007

We went for a last minute overnight stay to Blackpool and booked the Savoy over the net. Was a bit apprehensive over some of the reviews but the hotel was OK. Would place it as a 3 star. Requested a sea view room at reception and was given one, no problem, and no extra charge - this was on a weekday though.
Room was clean and an OK size.
Walked into Blackpool in the evening and had a pleasant time. Breakfast was fine, and we checked out and left the car there while we walked into town. Blackpool is looking very run down, and all of the attractions were shut, including the tower and the fun fair.

  • Liked — Good value - £50 for two people bed and breakfast
  • Disliked — nothing bad to say except that it was perfectly average
