We had booked a family room to accommodate 2 adults 1 child and one baby in a cot. We had arranged for our 3rd older child to stay in a relatives room as the hotel said they didn't have a room big enough for us all. However our room was really big and had a double bed 2 singles pushed together a cot and still had plenty of floor space and a little seating area so we were able to all stay in the same room. The other family room that our party booked was even bigger with a sea view. The rooms were clean and had nice decor as long as you like a traditional looking room. The only criticism was that we had asked for a cot in one of the other rooms we had booked which was not there when we arrived. We told reception and went out when we returned with a tired baby still no cot! We managed to spot a member of staff in the corridor and he did get one but baby had to miss his nap as it was time to go out again.
All the staff in the hotel were friendly and helpful. The swimming pool was nice, and there was a playroom well equipped for young children to burn a little energy off and another room with an air hockey table and other things to occupy our older child.
Breakfast was good with plenty of choice and the service in the dining room was good.
Located in the quieter north the tram stop was just across the road to take us to the busy part of Blackpool.
Felt it was good value an would stay again.
