I stayed at this hotel on a Cricket Club tour to the town. This is a perfect hotel for a lads weekend as the `interesting` experiences you will certainly have are all grist to the banter mill and will fuel reminiscence for years to come. I should also note that the club stayed at the Brittania Norbreck Castle in Blackpool in 2010 so this was part two of the rarely completed `fear and gravy double`.
We all stayed in `saver twin` rooms on floor minus 2. There are no windows, the rooms are boiling hot and the facilities are almost non existent with cleaning on the patchy side. The trick to dealing with the heat is to stay out until 4am in the sophisticated nite klubs of the town and drink anaesthetic quantities of warm lager. The cost for B+B was £22.50 p.p.p.n however, hence the title of this review.
Only the truly hard up amongst us braved the soviet style queues for breakfast and I recommend the close by cafe at the cliff lift which does a great fry for a fiver.
Its not all bad though, the external view of the building is fabulous and we relaxed in the hot autumn sun with on the magnificent terrace before our matches and enjoyed the great views of the bay.
Go for it all you experience chasers.....life isn`t all chocolates on the pillow and fair trade muesli.
