Booked the hotel with Edwards Coaches, as no other coach trip was going during the half term in November. Also it was advertised as a Turkey and Tinsel break which I fancied as I was going only with my son and thought It would be fun. However a week before we went I was informed the hotel had cancelled the T & T theme, which I was not very amused with! The trip was fairly expensive also.
The downstairs of the hotel is decorated nicely, dining room, reception , bars etc. We had a twin room which we were not too impressed with, small but cleanish, bedding clean. My eight year old was not too impressed! Tv was a flat screen. Bathroom needed modernisation , there was tissue paper stuffed in a hole of the surround of the wooden window, where there was a gap! I spoke to a family of three on the same coach as us and they had an updated modern bedroom which was huge with a view of the sea. We had paid the same amount and felt disgruntled about this!
Blackpool was fantastic, a million things to do, so we were kept busy!
The dining room was busy in the evening and we were kept waiting for quite some time between courses, the staff were rushed off their feet . Food good, but not enough of it. Luckily my husband wasn't with us or he would be starving! Our waiter went on the sick on the last night, I'm not surprised, he had had enough with the rushing about all the time!
We didn't really experience the entertainment we were out most nights, but the entertainers seemed happy and friendly. Female Older bar staff, very miserable!
If we return to Blackpool,we will try another hotel, generally not impressed at all!
