“Dirty!!!!!!”
Reviewed December 10, 2007

Needed a room for one night. Decided to try to save money on a room. Worst mistake of my life!! This place is dirty and it smells! I didn't want to sleep in the bed. I question if sheets had been changed since last guest. We checked out the next morning at 9am. Owner was no where to be found. We finally just left key on desk and got out of there! Don't stay here, spend the extra money and go with one of the chains.

Stayed November 2007

Stayed here for a stag doo last weekend and all we wanted was a bed for the night and thank the lord thats all we wantes.

Dirty, run down, rude staff.

Got up at 10 am which on a sunday is not to bad as we were up late the night before, yet we were told we were to late for breakfast. £30 each B&B, rip off.

Dont stay here its rubish.0

wish we had read the other reviews before booking, Can honestly say this is the dirtiest hotel i've ever booked into in Blackpool. It smells, it hasn't seen a paintbrush for years. the loose carpets are downright dangerous, windows are filthy. Worst of all the owners are rude and unhelpful. We did not even stay one night, horrid place. Please, please do yourself a faour do not go anywhere near this dump.

I saw it on the internet and thought what a lovely 4* hotel. How mistaken I was. Limited parking around the back meant once I was in, I was never going to get out until I left.
The hotel itself is very old fashioned and how room had facilities but had seen much better days.
Considering I spent £180 for a Friday and Saturday night yet would only be charged £40 if I stayed a weeknight, I felt slightly ripped off.
Excellent location though but overpriced and needs a re-furb.

We saw this hotel on the internet and thought it looked nice, what a disappointment. The hotel is very run down and smells old and musty. The carpet on the stairs is threadbare and the one in our room was badly stained. The walls were dirty, the bathroom was dirty and the lino was peeling from the floor. The shower had very low pressure and was only luke warm at best. It advertised as having parking but there is limited space around the back and the owner has to shuffle cars around to get you in. Once you are parked, don't plan on leaving until you check out. Don't stay here unless you are looking for a real budget hotel.
