Visited Blackpool to meet up with an old friend, and stayed in the Windsor. Our room was in the 'crows nest' at the very top of the hotel. This was a nightmare, having to traipse our cases up so many flights of stairs. The room was adequate, very clean but tiny. We both injured our shins, knocking them on the darned bed whilst just walking round it!
We tipped up for breakfast at 9.30 (after being informed breakfast was until 10) to be gently reprimanded and informed that we had just made it in time, as the rest of the guests were there for the golf and had been down to breakfast at 8.00. I guess it was pure devillment on our part that we ordered a full english after that, because really we weren't that bothered and cereal and toast would have done. However, the breakfast was generous and well cooked, but a selection of fruit would have been lovely...a banana would have sufficed! (oh, and no black pudding!)
There are no parking spaces at the hotel but the proprietor was very accommodating, moving his own car to let us park right outside the establishment. Thank you for that.
All in all, this place was very clean but a bit rough around the edges .We would have liked one of the rooms we saw on the internet, and we thought it a bit ripe to put two very respectable middle aged ladies in the rooms which appeared to be kept for dirty weekenders! Oh, and the bathroom was no bigger than a cupboard.
Very clean establishment.
Shower so powerful it took the top of your hungover head off! (and loads of hot water)
Very polite and friendly owner (? Matt)
