My husband and I decided the night before that we would take our 2 year old son to Blackpool to make the most of the heat wave. Considering it was last minute, we were really pleased with what we got. The staff where so welcoming and even gave our little boy a bucket and spade. Although, the woman working in the bar on the evening wasnt as enthusiastic, but we all have our off days. They had games for the kids and a spacious eating area, which leads me on to the breakfast. Absolutely lovely. Loads of variety and the serving staff were brilliant. Now to the rooms. As I said, we booked last minute, just for the one night. Our room was a ronseal of a room, does exactly what it says on the tin. Very basic, yet clean with the usual facilities. Based on a last minute booking, we will definitely be going there again

Very good value, this hotel very friendly. Charles the proprietor is extremely helpful offering tips of where to go in Blackpool.
Very conveniently situated opposite a tram stop which offers excellent service along the promenade.

We stayed at the Colwyn hotel for a weekend break and would highly recommend it to family/friends. It was away from the crowds in the centre but easy to either walk to take the tram there. Our bedroom was spotless with lovely white bedding and towels and lovely sea view.Breakfast was excellent with a huge variation to suit everyone. Charles Sheila and their staff were all very friendly and most welcoming. Will certainly return. Thankyou

We have just returned from a long weekend in Blackpool and found our experience at the Colwyn Hotel, Blackpool fautless from the initial phone call to make the reservation with Charles, through to our checkin, evening stays, breakfasts and check out. Charles and his staff could not have been anymore obliging.

If you want a perfect location just outside the hussle and bussle, but within easy walking distance to the pleasure beach, sandcastle and best of all tram stop across the road, then the Colwyn ticks all those boxes. There is also a fabulous Italian restaurant nearby that Charles recommended us. The rooms are adequate spotlessly clean with a really comfortable matress and pillow for a good nights sleep. The restaurant and bar area are also spotless and offer great beer and food. Come breakfast time there was ample to eat, with fruit, cereal, toast and the full english.

Bloomin marvellous, very highly recommended, we'll be back, thank you

Room Tip: views to the front looking towards the pleasure beach and sea would be preferred especially for watc...

We stopped at the Colwyn Hotel, Blackpool for one night while having a sunny weekend break. The hotel is in a great position, with own parking facilities but away from the noise and crowds.
The room was clean and tidy and the breakfast great. All the staff were vey helpfull and friendly especially on the Sunday morning when we found out our car had a flat tyre.
They helped us out and also found out where the nearest garage was open. Thank you so much. Would stop there again , no problem.

I stayed in the colwyn for 2 nights and I would recommend it to anyone. Staff are very friendly and helpful breakfast was fantastic the only thing I would say is the family room was pretty small but maybe I am just being picky

We have recently returned from two thoroughly enjoyable days at the Colwyn Hotel Blackpool. The Hotel is situated approximately two hundred yards from the southern end of the pleasure beach and sits in a nice position facing the promenade and north towards the pleasure beach. This hotel caters superbly for families and features a lift to all floors, which is very handy with pushchairs, etc. The breakfast is very nice, featuring the traditional British breakfast, plus cereals, yogurts, juice, with ampletea/coffe and toast. There is an amply stocked bar with a comfortable bar/lounge area with pool table. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully furnished. Importantly the staff are very friendly and helpful. This hotel is family oriented and is far enoygh away from the mayhem of Blackpool without being too far from the attractions. Tram and bus services can be accessed directly in front of the hotel on the prom. We will be returning in the near future. Richard and Jan from newcastle
