“Great hotel great staff shame about the view”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

Booked the waldorf for a weekend away, the staff were fantastic and couldnt do more for you, the rooms were great for what you pay the only downside was the view is to why i did not give this hotel 5 star rating and the outside could do with a lick of paint. It is about a 40 minute walk into the centre or 5 minutes on the tram or a 5 minute walk to the pleasure beach.

my friend booked this weekend away for my birthday and as a treat she booked for the john barrowman outdoor concert, however half way up the motorway we got a call to say the concert had been cancelled, but we still carried on and what a suprise when we got to the hotel, tom and steve are just fantastic, they couldnt do enough for us, nothing was to much trouble, we were shown to our room but within 5 mins tom came and asked us if we would like a larger room which we did it was lovely, when we went downstairs they had arranged for us to go to a fab restaurant for the evening, they even booked our taxi for us, they also did the same for the following evening.breakfast was fantastic, whatever you required they supplied, to sum it up they both do a fantastic job and make you feel very welcome, we wouldnt think twice about not returning.
Tom,Steve:keep doing what you are doing you are both just what the doctor ordered!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: rooms on the front have asea view,also very sunny

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights. We had a great time and could not fault the hotel for one thing. Check in was smooth, our room was lovely and the ensuite was ideal. We didn't eat at the hotel so cannot comment on that. We had a drink in the bar one night before heading out. The owners were lovely, always made time to chat to you and were on hand with tram advice etc. We had 2 great nights sleep and didn't hear any noise. Location is great as it's just past the Pleasure beach, but you can still walk into the centre, or hop on the tram. We found ourselves walking most of the time.
Would definately recommend this hotel, and will definately be back!!

Stayed here over the weekend. The room was a good size and we could see the sea. The first nite at 5am the roof sprung a leak because of all the rain. Not a problem cant be helped, we were moved to a bigger room and offered a free nites stay. The breakfast was very filling. The owners couldnt help us enough with ordering taxis and advising us where to eat out.
The hotel was a great place to stay and couldnt find a fault with it

Spent the weekend at The Waldorf after being moved from another nearby hotel that had double booked us. Steve and Tom graciously accepted our party despite that fact that we were on a hen weekend and they normally dont accept this type of group. We were greeted with a very friendly welcome and shown to our rooms. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and had all the amenities expected (and some additional ones on top) - en suite, towels, tea & coffee & biscuits, shower gel, hairdryer and good quality wooden coat hangers - no bendy wire ones here! We also had a sea view as the hotel is right on the front. There is a lift to all floors which was handy as one of our party suffers with a bad back.
We had one of the best breakfast experiences ever in Blackpool. Help yourself to different fruit juices (all fresh), and at least 7 different kinds of cereal. Tea, coffee and toast were brought to your table. You were then offered a full English breakfast, vegetarians were very well catered for too with Quorn sausages being offered. The chef could not have been more helpful and attentive, asking if we wanted muffins, yoghurts etc on top of everything!
I would definatley recommend anyone to stay at this hotel. I will definately be back.
Big thanks to Steve, Tom and all their team for everything.

We had a large group get together spend a weekend here recently and we all had a fabulous time. Steve, Tom and all the staff could not have done any more to make us welcome and cater for our every need. We would certainly recommend it to anyone. We all enjoyed ourselves so much we are going back again soon. If you are looking for accommodation where you can relax and have a good time, this is the place to go.
