“Rugby Friendship Club Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

Just returned from another great holiday at The Doric. Jason was very helpful prior to our arrival with bookings and room requests for my members (a coach party of 48 senior citizens). All the staff were pleasant and polite with good service throughout the hotel. Staff found time to talk to my members and have a laugh and a joke. A family atmosphere. The meals in the dining room and bar were excellent with a good variety and the food was always hot. The service was quick and efficient. This is our third visit and will be returning. The Doric Hotel is conveniently situated for the buses and trams and is on the flat. As a group organiser it ticked all the boxes for my group. If you are looking for good value for money for your group The Doric is a must. Eileen Borton, Group Organiser, Rugby Friendship Club

Stayed at the Doric in December had a great weekend, 11 of us stayed there and found that the rooms were spotless the food was good and the entertainment was great. Our ages ranged from 60 to 70 years and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The friendly staff worked very hard to make the weekend a success. There was even a visit from Santa. This was my first visit to the Doric it will not be my last.

Just been to the Doric Hotel for a family and friends weekend break. We paid £73 and we got excellent value for the money. We have been coming here for about 5 years now, the same weekend and our group varies in size but is usually around 65-70. This year including children there were 78 of us. The food is very good, a varied menu and the dining room staff are friendly and can't do enough for you. The rooms are ensuite and comfortable. If you need anything you just ask and its sorted. The entertainment includes bingo and a singer/singers on our weekends and is usually very good. It is next door to the Uncle Tom's cabin so if you prefer, you can enjoy whatever is on there in the evening. The Doric treated the children to a Children's Entertainer this year at no extra cost. What a lovely thing to do! The children really enjoyed it. Me and my husband took two of our grandchildren to the Doric in October for the illuminations. It was such a lovely weekend and we all had a great time. Especially popular with our group is the pool, jaquzzi and steam room downstairs. We had a great weekend and have booked again for next year.

Room Tip: The family suites are good, ours was number 2. It was very warm so we turned our radiator off and o...

I once again spent Christmas, Twixmas & New Year in Blackpool with a group staying here and the equally as good sister hotel The Park House. My family and I had our meals here on Christmas day and as always everything was first class. The food, the staff and the rest of the guests made this another excellent festive season at the Doric Hotel.
