“freidly hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

stayed for a couple of nights and booked a couple of extra days because we loved it so much.

rooms are kept clean and are suitable for what you need.
breakfast is way more than you can handle and plentiful .
entertainment is a great laugh and experience which encourages all guests to partake in the fun.
we keep saying we will
be going back and will definetly return at some point.

Stayed May 2013, traveled as a couple

This review saddens me especially as you are a returning guest and have stayed before.

I wasn't aware of any hole or that the room was draughty but I will be checking it tomorrow and rectifying the faults. Mildew isn't acceptable...looks like 2 cleaners and a last room check didn't pick up on that - re-training is obviously required and I'll be doing that too.

TV's - yeah they are small in every room - to be honest I cant afford to get bigger ones - which does lead me on to your point about entertainment - the singer was on for a good hour and yes - we advertise karaoke at New Year - its what the regular guests want - you did seem to be tucked away round the corner and you were obviously not enjoying it. It was exactly the same format as the previous New Year.

I am sincerely sorry you didn't find us at the same standard as per your previous review, however. Have a great trip to Blackpool - even if you wont be staying with us.

STAFF MEETING!!!!

This is our 2nd year in a row to Blackpool - what a brilliant choice of Hotel!
The rooms are very clean & comfortable, the breakfast is lovely and served with a smile :), if we missed breakfast we could get a toastie which are reasonably priced & very tasty, we also enjoyed the free tea & coffee whilst watching the world go by in the sun lounge. If we were aware of the dates of the Pigeon weekend for 2015, we would book now!
Would highly recommend The Canasta! - Thank you :)

a very warm welcome with the offer of free tea and coffee until 10.00.pm. Room was large with settee and coffee table and a lovely view of the sea. Breakfast was good, with plenty of choice. liked the fact that you could "borrow" a dog when walking along the sea front. Lovely night in the bar meeting other guests. Handy for tram and the tower.

Returned after yet another great stay at the Canasta with Doug and Mandy. We are always there for Mandys birthday but she never actually ages! (What is your secret Mandy you gorgeous thing!)
Rooms as ever spotless and comfortable and exceptional value for money. Breakfast was as fantastic as usual and all staff are still friendly, helpful and very hardworking and happy to help.
Not as many regulars as usual so I was hogging karaoke as usual! Hope to see more of the regular singers next year as my voice is still hoarse! :-)
Once again thank you for looking after all 9 of us and making us feel welcome x

Had a lovely stay at the Canasta as usual. Weather not very good but hotel always nice and warm, breakfast excellent as much as you can eat. short walk to tower. tram and bus stop directly across the road. We had a 6 week old baby in our party and staff did everything they could to help.
