“Great weekend”
Reviewed 10 October 2011

Just back from a 2 night break at the Rock Dene with my other half and 2 Nephews. This place is a real find and worth all the great reviews. Andy & Bernadette are the most fantastic hosts and really made us feel welcome from arrival to departure, they seemed to be on the go 24/7 however nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was fantastic and a great selection, very reasonably price bar too. We had a family room on the top floor which was cosy and provided everthing we needed.

Will definately be back and would recommend to others

i couldnt fault this hotel or hosts in any manner my family (ranging from 2yr to 73yr old) all had an extremely fantastic stay, Andy & bernadette bent over backwards for all of us from arrival to departure, we'll definately be back. IF CARLSBERG DID HOTELS IN BLACKPOOL THIS WOULD BE IT.

I considered booking this hotel for a weekend purely based on the Trip advisor reviews as I have never known a hotel to have all excellent or very good reviews. It was certainly a good choice Andy and Bernadette are great hosts and helpful in every way. It is ideally placed being close to attractions whilst situated in a quiet road.

The hotel interior is beautifully thought out and well maintained. It is spotlessly clean, with a pleasant well stocked bar. The breakfast provided is also really good.
The resort itself is undergoing a lot of improvements with obvious efforts being made to promote a traditional family feel. Although there were a lot of stag and hen parties going on it did not in any way feel rowdy. My wife and I particularly enjoyed a visit to the Grand Theatre ,the ornate interior is magnificent. There is also a new classy 50's style cabaret venue on the prom called Sands Venue which hosts top quality acts, an excellent meal, friendly staff and a great atmosphere. If you like the Rat Pack era this is well worth a visit. Overall it was a lovely weekend and we have already booked the Rock Dene hotel for another weekend in October 2011. I think that says it all.

Room Tip: All rooms are en suite but some are biger than others. Just ask for what you prefer

I can only say positive things about this hotel & it's owners Andy and Bernadette, we spent the August bank holiday weekend at the Rockdene and had a great time. We were immediately welcomed into the hotel and Andy made sure that we parked our car somewhere safe at a very reasonable cost just across the rd. Our room was just as described, we had a very comfortable stay and breakfast is super. Andy & Bernadette are keen to make sure you get the best deals on local attractions and are happy to recommend places to visit/eat. The next time we go to Blackpool we will deffinatley be back to the Rockdene! Thank you for a lovely weekend
