“Another fantastic weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

This was our third stay at the Canasta and we once again had a brilliant time. It was my sons 30th birthday so altogether there were 13 of us, and everyone from the youngest (21 months) to the oldest (I can't possibly say!!) had a wonderful time.
All the staff are great, nothing is too much trouble, and of course Dougie and Swampy are simply the best, we will be back next year without fail.
Cheers everyone,

Dave and Linda

Just returned after a weekend staying at the Canasta Hotel in Blackpool. From first checking in to leaving the service was first class. Very friendly staff, very attentive to all guests. Free tea & coffee offered on arriving and throughout the stay, cant beat that really. By far the best breakfast we have had in a UK hotel, served with a smile. Karaoke on Saturday evening if that takes your fancy.Special mention to Doreen who was always on hand to serve drinks or have a friendly chat and a laugh. Rooms clean with a small TV if you want to catch up on the news or whatever. Hot water a plenty and clean white towels, which on our arrival had a touch of Egypt as they were on the bed in a swan shape, nice touch. Free parking albeit with limited spaces, although we never had a problem. I can see why people return on a regular basis and think we may be added to that list. Location about 20 mins walk to tower so away from the noise. Thank you to all the staff who helped make our stay so enjoyable.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms available but they seem to get snapped up quickly. We did not have one but for the sm...

Julie and I stayed at the Canasta this weekend for our first wedding Anniversary. We have been going to the Canasta for a number of years of which we enjoy very much. The team always makes us welcome as they do with all their customers. A big thank you to Dougie and Mandy for the surprise Anniversary cake and to Karla, Daniel and Doreen for being great hosts see you all again soon.

Stayed at the Canasta for a long weekend with family members. Parking, as described is at a premium, but is more than adequate. Staff were really friendly, especially Doreen who was a laugh a minute. Breakfast was fantastic, well cooked, well presented and will satisfy the largest of appetites. The karaoke night was so much fun, even though there weren't that many guests staying that weekend, my family had a great night.
The room we had was clean and comfortable, although turning the shower on and off did require some strength, overall, the room we had could use a redec. A nice friendly hotel which I would use again,

Room Tip: Seaview room on the top floor, nice wide windows

Hi Scott and Shona. Thanks for your honest review. Minor niggles - you should have mentioned them on here....I certainly don't mind constructive criticism and usually will thank you for it. Thanks for your business and we're so pleased you'll be coming back.
