4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2010

We joined friend's to stay at this hotel. This was the first time we have stayed here. It certainly will not be the last!! Very good welcome. Davey was so warm and friendly. Even got some history lessons haha. Rooms were good value had a wonderful seaview. In a very good position. about 5-10 minutes walk from tower. Breakfast was very good. The drinks at the hotel were no different to the town centre bars which I think is good, usualy you can pay over the top at hotels. Well worth the time and money for anyone to try I don't think you would be disappointed. Thank you Davey hope to see you again later in year D Thomson (Newcastle Upon Tyne

Not too expensive but then it shouldn't be as only decent thing was the breakfast. However, you have to be down in the restaurant between 8.30am and 9am. This is not good if you're planning a late night which most people are when they visit Blackpool! The rooms are tired and dated (lots of chintz and nets) but look quite clean. But we did detect some pubic hairs in the shower tray...UGH! If you want inexpensive, can cope with an old knackered bed and like to be up bright and early for breakfast then this is the hotel for you! I personally don't plan to stay there again but it was tolerable for one night!

Really friendly staff whom can't do enough for you!
The rooms are always clean with towels being changed every day and beds turned down every day and my room especially had a great view of the sea promenade. Breakfast is great every time and can be changed to your preferences if desired with no trouble at all. The bar has a full range of drinks available and we have had many a great night there with a music session put on across the two nights we stayed for!
The hotel is situated very close to the nightlife while being far enough away to get a good nights sleep when needed and with ample parking out front.
I can't recomend this hotel any more for service, rooms, breakfast and location! 10 out of 10!

we could not fault the blencarn, very easy to find good off road parking. even though its only a 10 min walk to the main part of town it was nice and quiet unlike being south of the tower which seamed a bit busyer. the rooms were a good size and clean and tidy with every thing you would normaly expect. there was a large group of us and even though the hotel was full david was always around and offering to do things for us. the service was brilliant and we were treated very well. i would definatly stay again.
