I stayed there for six nights with wife and two children aged 3 and 6. The room was of an average standard but faced the middle of the hotel so there was no view, it was also very hot. the towels were changed daily.
Breakfast was good but only had one fresh fruit on offer daily. The evening meal was of a fair to good standard if a little samey and had three courses. The options were one of two meat dishes, one fish or one vegetarian. The waiters and waitresses worked very hard. For the price paid you could not grumble.
Entertainment for kids was ok, although they were ready for bed by 9pm. i stayed up and watched a couple of comedians which were very good.
The main entertainment room smelt a bit fausty. Bar prices were very good, I did wake up with a sore head a couple of mornings.
The gym is small and very hot although all you need on a little break and the pool is great for the kids on those wet days in Blackpool.
Parking a nightmare although I did get a space in the rear carpark and left the car there for six days. Dont leave any valuables on display, the area behind the hotel does look a bit run down and you get a few winos hanging on the seafront near the Metropole just down the road.
Apart from that not a bad hotel, but could do with a little money spent on upgrading. If you get a sea view would be that little better.
