“Worse Hotel Ever!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2007

where do i start???? my family where given the keys on arrival to a room at the top of the hotel, room was dingy [ splattered walls}, dirty laminate flooring, my husband went to en-suite !! to be greeted with a huge fermenting faeces of the previous occupant as the loo didn't flush, meanwhile i checked the bedding and found one bed hadn't been changed as there was body hair and a 5pence piece in it!!!! refused room, got keys to another room opposite, a little better i suppose, walls still dingy smearings all over!! Doors banging all night, intoxicated people trying door handles, knocking on doors, definatley not a hotel for children and i would only say it's for people who like their alcohol and don't mind where they sleep or more to the point what they sleep in. I would rather pay the extra money and have nice clean rooms.
The only reason we stayed on is that everywhere else is solidly booked for that time of year, we renamed the hotel the grotty hotel. sorry for people who like the accomodation but me and my family have got standards!!!

Went for 2 nights with a friend for my Birthday an didnt want to come home! Lynn & Hughie were great. Any problems and they were on to them straight away. The atmosphere in the hotel was amazing, we had so much fun, all the guests were gr8 too.

We were free to do what we wanted when we wanted which is a bonus for all.

We will be going back to Blackpool again in the near future and will definitely be staying int The GR8 Hotel again.

Thank you for a fab weekend xxx

I have been here few times now and never fail to have a brilliant time.This time was just as good although there is a party pooper next door who is misserable and don't understand people go to the gr8 hotel for fun and a gr8 time. We have already booked to come back and counting down the weeks. If you want a fab time this is the place to go its like home from home and all staff are brillient ... Chrissy
