We booked on here and couldn't stay. The place is filthy although they have matched the shower scum with the peach toilet paper which was a classy touch. I made a complaint to the owners but apparently my definition of dirt is different to theirs! They did offer us a free return stay but If you'll look at the photos...

What an absolutely marvellous place to stay. Upon arrival James greeted us with a smile. We had neglected to say when we originally booked that we would be in two cars. This was quickly resolved and parking was arranged.Two of the guests in our party are rather large people, upon seeing their room they enquired if there were any rooms...

The rooms were at a good standard. The evening entertainment was the best theater shows I have ever seen in my life. Friday music night was hilarious. Saturday 80s was awesome. Sunday was Wilma night and I cried in laughter most of the night. My uncle Bob got picked on a lot by Wilma. My mate Levy got dressed up...

From the minute you walk into the hotel you are made you feel part of the family. The staff are friendly and the rooms are newly refurbished and clean and well laid out. The shows at night are like a Broadway production, a must watch! You simply have to try the pizz pot cocktail! They sell an afternoon tea at...

Stayed with my partner as not been to Blackpool for few months. Rooms very basic and not very clean at all . Breakfast is low quality ingredients and shows in presentation and taste . Owners bit over the top esp older one and you don't feel comfortable staying there . I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone I'd rather pay...
