We all thought the hotel was good value for money, - (had 2 nights which included breakfast & 3 course dinner) the food was all of a very good standard, nice choices and plentiful for all of us!
staff were cheerful and efficient - nothing too much trouble. We were pleasantly surprised that the interior was quite modern and not tacky, like alot of other hotels in the area. Would have liked a bit more background music, it was on but hardly audible.
Our rooms were spacious, very clean. the bathroom in our room was a bit jaded & looked in need of up-grading, but it was clean & functional which is all that mattered for the short time we were there. We had requested sea views, which was nice as the weather on the saturday was really sunny & quite warm for october! An added bonus was the indoor pool & jacuzzi. Okay, pool not of olympic size, but my son & I had a few swims and it was lovely and warm & extremely clean.The one thing that got us all down a bit, was how hot the hotel was! It was uncomfortably hot, alot of people were complaining - even older people who do feel the cold more than us "youngsters!"All in our party had to switch off room radiators - but then I suppose it wasn't mid winter & we may have appreciated the warmth then!
Location was a bit far out, but no problem as tram stop opposite & we did walk into the town once - but then got tram back!
Overall, I would definately reccommend this hotel & go back there if visiting Blackpool again, we had a lovely family weekend with lots of fun at the Pleasure Beach!
