The Funky Towers Hotel in Blackpool is right on the front and offers some excellent views of the sea. The hotel is ran by a young couple who could not be more helpful or nicer to deal with. They rushed out to help us with our bags on arrival, recommended an excellent restaurant and generally more pleasant than anyone could wish for. The rooms offer all you need for a fun weekend in Blackpool with a tasty full English breakfast in the morning. I'd stay there again for the excellent value and friendly owners.

My wife and myself, along with two very good friends, stayed at The Funky Towers over Halloween weekend.
We really enjoyed the stay and the young couple who own the place are really friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble.
We had a nice room with a sea view and the room was comfortable and also had tea / coffee making facilities.
Nice freshly cooked breakfast as well !
Funky Towers is ideally situated halfway between The Tower and Pleasure Beach and is highly recommended.
We will definately be going back.

Just back from weekend at Funky Towers, had four poster room overlooking the sea which was a nice view.
Disappointed with the shower, had to wait 10 mins to get hot and not much pressure and badly needed updating as tray has black on the sealant. Room ok but nothing special needed updating too. Bed creaky as no doubt the people below found out, which is a bit off putting for a 'romantic' four poster room!
Servicable but nothing great, for the money we paid we have stayed many times in Blackpool with much better rooms - but then again you don't spend that long in it - unless it's for a dirty weekend of course!
Didn't make breakfast so can't comment and didn't use the lounge area either.
The owners seemed very nice and friendly and the location is good for all we needed it for. I have seen all the reviews on here which is why we chose here but perhaps the other rooms are better. I am not being picky just saying it how we saw it - others may disagree which is why we all have an opinion.
Would still recommend but the shower definately needs sorting asap and a little oil on the bed perhaps would help romance?!

I was looking for a hotel for my Family and I to stay in whilst in Blackpool for the weekend, and because we are a family of five it was proving a little difficult until I found Funky Towers!!!!

When we arrived we were met by Adam and Becky, absolutely lovely people. Adam took our suitcases to our room whilst we went to park the car in the nearby carpark. First of all I would like to tell you about the location: We were probably slap bang in the middle of Blackpool Tower and Blackpool Pleasure Beach with about 10 minute walking distance each way, this was ideal !!!!

When we came back we were shown to our room, and what a surprise. We stayed in the family room that sleeps 5 and it was overlooking the sea. The room was lovely and spacious, with lovely decor and a power shower. The beds were really nice and comfortable. The bar/lounge area was lovely and clean, as was the dining room. For the two mornings we were there we had a lovely Full English Breakfast to help start our days. If you are looking to stay in a hotel not too expensive, clean, fantastic location and with the most loveliest hosts who could not do enough for you then you must stay here. I have no complaints whatsoever with this Hotel, we will be visiting gain and we will certainly be staying at Funky Towers.

My husband treated me to a weekend break at Funky Towers for my birthday. We stayed in one of their 4 poster bedrooms and we were not disappointed, the room had a fantastic view out over the sea and it was very well decorated and even had a DVD player. We especially enjoyed watching a romantic sunset over the beach. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. Adam and Becky are perfect hosts and went out their way to make us feel welcome. They serve a fantastic full English breakfast and as much tea and toast as you want which was perfect for my husbands huge appetite! I am already looking forward to returning later in the year.
