This hotel has everything you could wish for at a great price. Free parking, free tea and coffee and juice for the kids, a great breakfast and clean and tidy bedrooms. This was our 4th stay and I'm sure we will be back. Gav is a great addition to the bar. There are some comments on here about the owner...

Thanks very much Jane for your valued review. The Pancakes with Maple Syrup are a very popular alternative but not always on the menu - depends which side of the bed Her Swampiness has gotten out of to be honest.

We stayed at the Canasta Hotel Blackpool just for 2 nights there Saturday until Monday. Last minute booking so we got the last room available which was a triple. Thought this would be a problem with our Son Robert but the room was big enough so he still had his own space. It was a front sea/view with a fab...

After ringing to enquire about a few rooms for my family to stay in for a few nights, I spoke to the owner Doug who was rude & abrupt from the minute he answered the phone. Having stayed here a few times years ago, that didn't really come as a surprise, but thought we would try to stay again this...

Sam - I was merely pointing out that our car park was tight and there was no room to wheel a wheelchair between the cars. That's how it is. You explained your sister cant get out of her wheelchair so I was reminding you how tight our car park actually is. Everyone expects parking nowadays and we have to maximise...

I don't think you've ever stayed with us...have you? I'd have no problem with reviews like this if they were submitted by verified guests who have stayed with us. This is where TripAdvisor is lacking. Its not fair on my business that this review remains and TA won't supply reviewer details so I can take legal action or at least...

I called to enquire about functions and I was confronted by a person who for one could not simply answer a basic question.

Well I don't remember this...but it is true I don't suffer fools gladly on the telephone. It probably went something like this:- "Do you do wedding functions?"
