Staff are very friendly, rooms are clean but some have not been updated yet and look very tired. Meals are good and they do provide a range of vegetarian meals. The entertainment over the Gold Club week was not very good. I enjoyed my Holiday as I always do when I stay at The Doric.

This hotel maintains a high standard . The Gold Club is great.
Staff are excellent. Room well equipped and clean, Menu varied catering for all tastes . We have been coming for over 30 years and have always had a wonderful holiday. We would not use any other hotel in Blackpool.

Room Tip: Front rooms have a great view. Can be very windy.

Once again the hotel came up trumps. The staff are always happy, polite and extremely helpful, the meals are outstanding, and bar prices are good in comparison to other local hotels. James and Jason are on the ball, Stuart runs the bar like clockwork.

Stayed at the Doric from 27th of February until Saturday 2nd March with my husband and 5 year old daughter. The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating for my daughters needs. Especially James the restaurant manager he was brilliant. The rooms were very clean and fresh. The restaurant meals which were included were basic for our taste but ideal for our daughter. Communal areas were clean. Good pool but the jacuzzi was cold. As it was out of season the other guests were mainly oap's, with about 6 families. The only criticism was the evening entertainment did not cater for children. As it was advertised as the best family hotel in Blackpool we expected at least a early kiddies disco on the Saturday night. However the DJ did play ever song I requested straight away, until the oldies came out of bingo.

Stayed at the Doric for 6 weeks when our caravan site shut down. All the staff are friendly fantastic and a credit to the hotel, especially Linda and Sarah on reception, Graham and George the night porters and all the restaurant staff, nothing was too much trouble for any of them. In answer to a recent review by Mr Graham M we did not treat it like we owned it and we did not moan about our rooms nor did we think we had priority over other customers in the bar/restaurant. Why he thought we paid any less than him I don't know.

On Sunday 2nd March, we had another fund-raising lunch at The Doric Hotel (we've had three a year at The Doric for the last 27 years or so!). About 56 people attended and, as usual, we were delighted with everything. The staff are so helpful and friendly, the room was set out beautifully, and the food was excellent. James is an absolute star. Keep up the good work! We'll be back at the end of June this year.
