“Weekend away for Nine....”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were a group of Nine who decided we wanted a traditional Blackpool weekend away.....
we were certainly not disappointed.. The Vidella oozes Blackpool and all it stands for. The staff were fantastic, friendly and accomadating - clearly professionals they judged exactly how we were and matched our personalities perfectly. The Restaurant was far more than expected the food was excellent all homemade hot tasty and presented in a 5star manner. The entertainment Deal or No Deal was very funny followed by Karaoke again super fun. we felt like we were being singled out for special treatment but actually we could see that is how all the guests are treated.
We will definitely visit again it was certainly value for money.

We stayed at the Vidella hotel. The staff are extreamely friedly and very helpful. The welcome was warm and engaging for the whole party of 9.

The hotel has something about it,you get a 5 star welcome at the Vidella.

The food in the resturant was really good and I couldnt believe that price, very reasonable. Greg was very funny the camp waitor ( I am sure he wouldnt mind me saying that. He been around the block many times, so he knows how to pitch the tone and service.

The bar staff were excellent and the game of no deal was entertaining. They have two dogs whcih made it feel warm. The hotel is a bit dated in parts, but that really adds to the stay.

We would book again just for the staff, to be honest.Its not every day you meet a drag queen on the stairs going to your room. You can pay more and stay in flashy hotel but the Vidella made us so welcome so we will book again, it seems the place has adopted us

Our party was mixed straight and gay and it made no differance to our straight friends who loved it

my friend,my mother and myself had a fab couple of days.It is not the ritz and would benefit a few tweek's here and there especialy the bathrooms,saying that it is clean,comfy beds and nice towels.but what it lacks in sparkle in the rooms the staff more than make up for.
they are funny,friendly,extremely polite and go out of there way to help.we didn't use the restaraunt but the other guests said it was fab.It's in a great spot and if you are looking for a place to chill and have a chuckle with your mates it's ideal.
