My daughter and I stayed at the Sandford Hotel 3 years ago and decided to stay again. New owners now and such a difference to the decor. Very light and spacious. We actually stayed in the same sea view top floor room.
Mark and his family are fantastic hosts - and so welcoming and laid back. Nothing is too much trouble and the breakfasts are really plentiful and tasty.
I bought a Blackpool Pass which included multiple attractions. We had a parking space at the hotel so once we arrived I didn't have to worry about moving the car for 4 days! Even on our checkout day they were so helpful so we could enjoy every last moment there.
We had the lasagne meal one evening at the hotel - very tasty and good value too.
I'm sure Mark won't forget our 'girls trip' rather large travel case, he kindly took it up to the 2nd floor for us .... I did warn him !!!!
Overall we really enjoyed our stay and visit to Blackpool, the weather was great and I'm sure we will be back ASAP.
Thanks again to you all - you're doing a fantastic job.

My wife and I stayed at the Sandford from May 12th. through the 21st. We felt very welcome from the moment we arrived. Nothing was to much trouble for them, even getting food that my wife could eat with her very restricted diet. Breakfast and bar food was delicious. We had a great view of the sea from our room. The hotel is located between the pleasure beach and the tower with a tram stop very close. We had a terrific time. Thank you for all you did for us. If we get back to Blackpool I know where we will be staying. Peter&Claudette.

Room Tip: Get a sea front room it is worth it for the view.

Hello Peter,

Thank you so much for your kind words, we are so glad that you and your wife enjoyed your stay here with us. As you and Claudette know we pride ourselves here on catering for everyone, and nothing is literally too much trouble, we are more than happy to source alternative foods for restricted diets and allergies. Its good to know you got to the Airport on time and caught your flight! Hopefully next time you visit you can bring some of that fantastic Floridian weather with you, and maybe some of them famous oranges :) Once again thank you for your kind words, we can't wait to see you both again soon.

Take care,

The Sandford Team.

We used a Wowcher code for this hotel, We arrived on Friday 12th May and left yesterday on Sunday 14th May, we were in room 18 and a it had a lovely sea view, you could see for miles! Breakfast was lovely & they even catered for my fussyness, I had a sausage, bacon & hashbrown sandwich which was delicious! The hotel is smack bang in the middle of the tower & the pleasure beach & is over the road from the tram stop 'St Chads Road' - Room was clean & very homely & Mark the host was absolutely lovely, down to earth and loved a good chat. We couldn't have asked for a better hotel, considering we travelled down on the train from Coventry - Thanks again & we will definitely be returning! From Danni

Room Tip: 2nd floor, lovely sea views

We stayed for 3 nights in room 16 on the top floor, room was small but adequate for 3 nights stay. en suite shower and toilet. Tv in room.Bed was very firm, which I like but springs made it very lumpy. A mattress topper would have made it very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Breakfasts were great with cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt and orange juice as well as much tea or coffee as you wanted. The full English and toast was lovely and cooked to order. We ordered food at the bar one evening and really enjoyed it.Our only complaint was- we were 3 nights in our room- no bins emptied or towels changed

Room Tip: Room 16 has fantastic sea view

Hello Dorothy,

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a fantastic review, it really is appreciated. We are very proud of Room 16 (It was the first room we renovated last year, and as a result has that great TV and décor!) We are so pleased that you enjoyed our breakfast and the bar meals. In relation to the bed we will definitely look at either replacing the mattress or placing a memory foam topper on it (Its the first issue that we have been made aware of so rest assured we will get it sorted). In relation to the bin not being emptied or the towels being changed, we have a policy here where guests can place a door notice on the outside of the door, thus informing staff to refresh the guests room and/or replace any towels. We like to respect our quests privacy and don't like to enter unannounced on a daily basis. Thank you for your feedback it is much appreciated, and once again thank you for leaving such a great review. Hope to see you both soon, take care.

The Sandford Team.
