“The Colwyn Hotel.. Just what you want in Blackpool!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

First time in Blackpool. Situated virtually next to the pleasure beach and a short walk from where the excitement starts :0)))... But far enough out for a quiet night sleep.. Staff were excellent.. No one was in your face but if you needed anything or advice on where to go everyone was so helpful... And the breakfast was lovely, kept us all going till lunch!! :0)) Definitely will return.. AND our fabulous host kindly return item of my daughters left in a drawer!! No questions asked they returned them all without a quibble!!! :0))))) highly recommended!!!

Stayed here a couple of nights in early November and enjoyed our stay. Arrived in blackpool early but was allowed to check in and get our room early as it had been cleaned. Had a family room, bunk beds and double. Room was pretty small but clean. Shower was terrible tho, dribbled out, took an age to get showered. Breakfast was excellent, bar was good and overall a good time was had. Would go back.

Recently myself, my husband and two teenagers stayed at the Colwyn for two nights. Not plush but then can't expect that for the price right on the seafront and free parking. Charles the owner such a friendly man, nothing too much trouble. The lady manager also lovely and helpful. The rooms are basic but all you need. Breakfast so much choice and friendly staff who will keep topping up with toast, tea and coffee as much as you want. Got the bus and the tram both across the road up to the busy area and we were glad we were not that end to sleep very busy, very noisy. We also walked all the way back from the Tower which is fine if you take in all the shops etc on the way back. So all in all a perfect place to put your head down and eat a good breakfast before exploring for the day.

We arrived for out two-night stay to find the usual Blackpool parking problems but this was immediately sorted out by the owner/manager and thereafter we had no problems.

Our first impression of our seaview room was of cleanliness, space and order and this was proved correct as we settled in. The shower could have benefitted from the partly-blackened sealant being replaced but other than that we had no complaints. Yes, it is an old building and shows it in places but the owners are obviously doing there best to keep the maintenance up to scratch.

Breakfast was ample and well-cooked and served in the dining room by pleasant staff. We did not stay for dinner but the menu looked interesting and with a good selection to try.

In summary, a cut above many other Blackpool hotels and one we would be pleased to visit again.

Excellent hotel with lovely clean rooms, breakfast was excellent if you went away hungry it was your own fault, with lots to choose from and nothing too much trouble for them to cook. Free parking with bus stop just across the road left the car all weekend. Lovely and quiet up the southend but not too far from the attractions. All the staff are friendly and helpful wouldnt hesitate recomending this little gem to anyone wanting a great stay in Blackpool. We didnt take our children this time but the families that were there the children got whatever they asked for breakfast from a boiled egg to beans on toast with a yoghurt!
We have stayed with Charles for the last 5 years has a family and on our own and we will be staying there again- see you next year

I have recently stayed at The Colwyn Hotel with my husband and my 11 year old daughter.We were greeted on arrival by Charles who made us feel at home immediatley.Our room was lovely and had everything we could want.The location of this hotel is ideal for Pleasure Beach and is also a nice walk from the central attractions.Although we didnt have our evening meal in hotel it looked absolutely gorgous..we happened to be in bar as they were prepareing for evening meal..we wished we were staying there for our meal!! The evening entertainment they had on that evening was extremly good as well...even my 11 year old was up line dancing..we all had a great night!
Breakfast in the morning was just as we expected..lovely.Staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble...we actually think it was the best service we have had in a hotel for a while.
This is definetly a hotel we would go back to...and with an 11 year old who has just discovered pleasure Beach i,d say it will be sooner rather than later.
Would very highly recommend this hotel!!!

We had a great time here at the Colwyn. Comfortable clean rooms. Easy going atmosphere. Fantastic breakfast and staff. Let down only by evening barmaid who could hardly be bothered to serve or speak and charged me £5.00 for a tin of cider! Be careful in the bar but otherwise a very pleasant place to stay and helpful friendly owner! Rest of staff fantastic as well!
