I booked 2 rooms for 2 nights, 1 double and 1 family, at a total cost of £200 that's agood deal in my book.
Arrived and checked in straight away, no dramas and no waiting.
Family room was very good, very clean, spacious and with a spa bath, the only down side was that it faced the road and so had a bit of road noise but not enough to keep us awake after full days exploring and fun in Blackpool.
Double room was also good, clean and with enough space to be comfortable, the only down side was that it had obviously been a smoking room at some point and so had a bit of that residual stale smell.
The entertainment was very good, my 4 year old daughter enjoyed the singing and dancers immensely and the ololder folks liked the bingo.
The hotel has undergone some significant upgrading and is still in the process of this. The rooms that have been upgraded are now clean and fresh, you need to remember the hotel is 100 years old.
Breakfast was good quality, hot and plenty available. The waiting staff did their best, but did suffer due to the volume of guests.
A special mention must go to the young lady on reception, very helpful.
All in all a great value for money hotel, just remember it is a 2 star, although we received 3 star rooms and service.
