Arrived on Friday, we were a family with 2 boys age 10 and 6 within a group of say another 5 with kids all staying here. Parking just 2 minutes up the road was £8.00 for 48 hours really reasonable. Another team were also booked into the hotel, think it must have in excess of 25 rooms. The rooms were really small and very basic, but they are clean and for a family that is important. Andy who runs the hotel with his wife puts in some hours and was up and arranged early breakfast for us all so we would be fed before out tournament and kept the bar open until you went to bed. (poor soul)
The place is typical of Blackpool, a bit dated many rooms packed in so they are really small and any longer than a couple of nights I'm sure the lack of floor space would have been impossible. There was also no TV but given it was a very active weekend it was not missed.
Andy the owner however is a bit of a mystery, first appearance is well not going to mess with you! However he was absolutely fantastic with the guests, had time for the kids and was a patient man putting up with boys trudging in and out and playing footie out the front and generally nothing was a bother. He put on some samosas for those in the bar on the Saturday, and the drink is just so reasonably prices in fact it was cheap.
It would not be my place of choice if it were us going away, but have to say for the purpose and the ages we had with us it was ideal.
The breakfast is really good, you could easily skip lunch after all that!
Staying at The Regency was part of our weekend and we really enjoyed the weekend
