We stayed in the Doric Hotel Blackpool. We were received with a very warm welcome and the checkin was easy peasy. The staff were very pleasant (except one waitress in the dining room who gave the impression that she obviously didn't want to be there) the remainder were great, helpful and friendly.
The hotel is well situated and on the tram route. It is within walking distance of the centre.
The rooms are wery clean and the housekeeping staff did a superb and very efficient job of servicing the rooms. Well done.
The lights were fantastic and we had a super visit overall.
One criticism is that the heating was turned up full and it was far too hot in the dining room and throughout the hotel corridors. It was so hot when one got up from breakfast or dinner the seat was left wet with perspiration. It was difficult to cool the room down to be able to sleep.
Our experience overall was very good and I would commend this hotel to you. They do charge £2.00 for Wi Fi (half hour) but the reception couldn't say whether it had to be used in one go or in spurts. I didn't indulge them so I can not answer a question on this.
