5 of us stayed here for a long weekend, aged from 11 to 93 years. Our rooms were clean and spacious. Enjoyed all our meals, restaurant staff very attentive. Evening entertainment was good with something for everyone. Outdoor pool good with very nice, sunny seating area. A really nice hotel. Have stayed many times in Blackpool, first time at this hotel, I booked to return to the Doric in July before we left! Great value for money. Thanks to James and all the staff for looking after my Nana. See you in a couple of weeks.

Stayed at this hotel in March and although basic it was great value for money. Staff were friendly and the breakfast fine. My grandchildren loved the pool. Lovely quiet position in Blackpool and bus service to the centre across the road. Would return again.

Love the Doric Hotel. Had many happy holidays here over the years. Been going for about 12 years. Took my two daughters from the ages of about 9 and 10 and they still love it now.
The staff are all very friendly, Jason, George, Krazy Karl is a fantastic entertainer with the children, keeps them all occupied. James is brilliant he always finds us a good spot to sit in in the Restaurant. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the staff. Would strongly recommend this Hotel, great in the school holidays for families and great for couples out of season.

We have just returned from here and their other hotel, park house. it was brilliant, we had such a great time with our families. everything was spot on from the food to the staff to how spic and span the whole place was, it was immaculate. the young girl on reception said they had just redecorated the games room and the children absolutely loved the car racing game - a massive imoprovement, well done. we had a fantastic room (number 35) and it was so clean! everything was great and i cannot fault a thhing,looking forward to going back in august! we have also joined their facebook page to keep upto date with offers and they email stuff out too which is fantastic, saves us having to call. A* to the Doric!!

We have stayed at the Doric many times before. The staff are always helpful and friendly James and his team in the restaurant provide excellent service and the meals are faultless. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Blackpool. Well done to all of you. you all work hard and see you again in August.

Just returned from another trip to the doric and we all had a fantastic time as usual. All the staff are so friendly and will do anything for you. I have a fussy eater and a vegetarian and they would always make something different for you if there was nothing on the menu that they liked. I had a family suite which was massive and had two bathrooms and a separate room with bunk beds in it so we could have some privacy without the kids. The room also overlooked the outdoor pool. Only downside was the weather was poor so we couldn't enjoy the outdoor pool but went in the indoors pool with its Jacuzzi and steam room. Had a lovely time and can't wait for the next time we visit.

I have stayed at the Doric many times of the past 30 years and I can honestly say that I keep returning because the location is excellent, the staff warm and friendly, good food and great amenities. The Doric delivers a consistent service that I would say is above its 2 star rating. A great family hotel that I would (and do) recommend to my friends.
