“will not be back”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

Under new ownership.. we were there in oct 2011.. the rooms were mimimal and you got the feeling that they couldnt wait for you to get out, they dont seem suited to B&B work. very unsociable.. she was more interested in ironing than pleasing guests and the husband was worse. didnt get to know names just felt very uncomfortable all the time . I stayed sshort term but would hate to stay any holiday in the place, on leaving they hardly lifted there heads to say goodbye.. money is to tight these days so i will be shopping about for a better deal for my money..somewhere that the owners are actually pleased to see you. You wont find it here....

Room Tip: another hotel. rooms to small

A very reasonable room only hotel.... two people in an en suite room with freeview tv and new beds/ coffee making for £20 per night can't be beaten. ITS UNLICENSED BUT THEY HAVE ANOTHER HOTEL AND PEOPLE CAN USE FACILITIES IN BOTH. Really nice owners. Make you feel at home been back three times already.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
When we were trying to book up for our family holiday each year, wherever we wanted to stay, it was so difficult, to get a Hotel to take two adults, at least 3 children, one of whom had food intolerances and our 3 family dogs, or if there was some Hotel available, we needed a second mortgage to pay for the privilege and so invariably we ended staying in a caravan. Nothing wrong with that but when you have to cater for the family all year round, it is so nice to be waited on and have everything done for you during your holiday. Our policy as far as our Hotel is concerned is to overcome all of those problems, to operate virtually a 4 star Hotel, be spotlessly clean, cater for food intolerances and pets and all at a price that everybody can afford. Blackpool is a wonderful location for a short break or for your annual holiday, either with the family, as a couple or to enjoy between business meetings. The Canberra Hotel is in a great position, close to the seafront and all the attractions, such as the Pleasure Beach, Blackpool Tower and the Golden Mile. We are a family operated, fully licensed Hotel and have a lovely, relaxing bar area where you can enjoy a few drinks after a busy day of sight-seeing and enjoying yourselves. We offer bed and breakfast with optional evening meal and a Dining Room, serving up a wide variety of tasty options, and catering for food intolerances / preferences. ... more   less
