Reviewed August 27, 2012

This is Nan and Grandads favourite hotel in Blackpool and I can see why. I have now stayed here twice , the Hotel is great, food is fab and is known in our family as " Richards"

I stayed for a week in August and had a great holiday and want my family to return next year.

Great location. near the pleasure beach but a tram stop across the road.

My Dad phoned to place a bar tab for us as a surprise and all went really well.

Mum and Dad had a night at a posh hotel in Blackpool which was not as good as this Hotel. sometimes you dont get what you expect

I love this hotel and the staff are great and made me feel very welcome, thanks

Stayed here 20th - 24th Aug had a lovely stay with my hubby and daughter. Room was spotless had a lovely clean smell too. A little dated but who cares clean and very comfy great power shower and fresh towels daily.
Meals great for price paid not huge but enough for us. All tastes catered for just ask lady next to us was a very fussy eater but they smiled and gave her what she wanted. While another was served scampi n chips I never saw that on the menu! Lovely staff nothings to much trouble if they can help they will!
The Bar manager Colin was a lovely guy did a great job serving drinks,Selling and calling bingo introducing the entertainers as well as answering the phone and covering reception! ( not grumpy as someone said but BUSY )
Entertainment was great really top class singers better than bigger hotels I have stayed in.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Richard the owner was a very nice Man with lovely staff. They must be doing something right other guests have been returning for over 15yrs. A lot of them on first name terms with the staff great Job Richard!

First stay in this hotel and i must say it is the best hotel i have stayed in. It is about a 1 min walk to a tram stop which will take you anywhere on the promenade.Also is about a 3 min walk to the pleasure beach.The food is excellent and will suit anybody at any age. Every night there was bingo at 8pm then followed a singer or comedian.The hotel offers free drinks between 18:30 & 21:30. If you want a branded soft drink it is 50p or if you want a branded beer (Carlsberg) it is £1 extra for a pint. The staff are so friendly and are always willing to help you. The only downside is that the rooms could be doing with being decorated but overall i give it a 9.5/10

Just got back after staying a night at this hotel. Was a little mix up in the bed department from what we booked, this was swiftly rectified by the manager. Room was just right for what was needed (and a very comfortable bed unlike my last visit to a village hotel). Only thing I would change would be the curtains (blackout would be better, my little girl wakes up when the sun does). All the staff were friendly, could probably go as far as to say they enjoyed there work). Breakfast was lovely perfect start for the day.

Just had 3 night stay at Silversands, with National Holidays.
Enjoyed every meal, especially breakfasts. The staff were ALL great and we were served by 3-4 different barmen, who were all friendly and efficient.
2 nights of singers/comedian and the last was a quiz and a couple of games of bingo(which I hate), but we had a great laugh.
These guys work so hard on providing everything for their guests, and the value is unreal.
What do people want?
NO COMPLAINTS HERE!

Room Tip: We used the stairs and left the lift for the more elderly. Our room was on first floor.
