“Tired”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

I have been in this hotel a few times just for a drink, stayed only once which was a disappointment. The room was very tired and shabby and very dark and dismal, but it was reasonably clean.
Reception staff were quite dismissive on check in and the bar staff on one of the bars seemed as though they just didn't want to be there. Entertainment was reasonable. Overall I have stayed in better hotels down south shore with far better service and fantastic entertainment. The Lyndene could do with some lessons.

HelloSteven, Owner at Lyndene Hotel, responded to this review, September 3, 2013
Hello FoxyLady,
We cannot understand how you managed to call in the hotel a few times for a drink, when we have notices outside the hotel and on the entrance to the hotel stating that the hotel is for residents only. We have a 95% occupancy rate, with nearly 300 guests per night all year round, so we cannot accuse our bar staff for serving you as a non resident.
We are very dissappointed you say your room was tired and shabby???, we have spent over 1 million pounds in just over 12 months of refurbishment making this hotel so beautiful. We do infact have a full time decorator that maintains and keeps our rooms in tip top condition.

We stayed at the Lyndene a couple of weeks ago for a weekend. We have stayed here many times before and always go back.

The hotel is very well located and all amenities are within a short walk.

We have always had a good sized room with shower, New tv and toiletries, tea and coffee making stuff.

The food is basic but I actually prefer this to some of the fancier foods you get in more expensive hotels because you know what to expect. Starter, soup, main, tea or coffee and on a Saturday cheese and biscuits. Really good choice of puss and excellent service.

Varied entertainment programme and reasonably priced drinks.

Very friendly and efficient staff. Would recommend and we will be returning.

Room Tip: We have always had a good room

Comfy beds small rooms clean and tidy could do with an upgrade staff in restraunt great but bar staff need attention letter/email on way from one of my family's friend who stayed also staff at reception need to be a bit more polite and helpfull came across as if we was hard work when trying to book for dinner/breakfast overall holiday was good we would reccomend you go as you will enjoy as long as the issues above are resolved in some way

I've been to many hotels in Blackpool, but the Lyndene is by far the best. Staff are very friendly and helpful, the food is lovely and the atmosphere of the hotel is very warm and welcoming. Location wise, you are about a 10 minute walk from South Pier and the Pleasure beach which is great, and about 30 minutes away from the town centre. The room i stayed in was perfect, laminated flooring, new bathroom and the cleanliness of the room was very good. This is one of the few hotels in Blackpool to strive to improve as well, the entertainment room had been refurbished since my last visit, the reception had been changed and my room looked brand new. The range of entertainment on offer was excellent as well, for the price this is by far the best hotel in Blackpool.

Room Tip: If you can, get a sea view room!

we have stayed at this hotel several times allways had a great time stayed 5th to m9th august when we arrived and booked in we where to stay at st chads we knew this when we booked the recepionist asked which dinning room we wanted we said downstairs so we could eat dinner early we were disappointed with st chads the decor in the room left a lot to be disired at breakfast on the second day we were informed by john the waiter we may have to give our table up and change to 2nd sitting depending on whether anyone else booked into the lyndene this is annoying we felt like 2nd class visitors the next day he apologised but the damage was done. when we went out latter on insult was added by the vacancy sign was shinning bright. it has made us think about staying there again

Room Tip: dont be fooled into staying at st chads if they say lyndene is full
