I stayed here for stag do last weekend and I felt the need to write a review to try and blaance up some of the other negative things I have read below.
For starters, the hotel caters for stag and hen parties. In a town built on stag and hen parties,finding somewhere to take our party was an absolute nightmare. Which to me seems odd as without stag/hen parties Blackpool would keel over and die within a year. Most places won't accept them so finding anywhere to stay is a god send.
The hotel is very dated but for £20 we got what we paid for, somewhere to lay our head at the end of a night out on the lash.
There were broken mirrors on the walls and some of the old carpets were coming away. The only real issue was that the room doors didn't shut properly but that was probably because they had been kicked in one to many times, we got round this by not leaving valuables in the room.
The room was reasonably clean and the beds were turned down with fresh linen. The rooms had obviously seen better days and the bathroom was a little tired and mouldy (no more than my own bathroom) but the shower was hot, the tap water drinkable, it did everything that was required.
The manager was very friendly and worked non -stop all weekend to make sure we all had a good stay. He informed us about where to go on the night and was very helpful.
We weren't disturbed by any other guests, infact I spoke at length with on or two of them. It was March (cold) and the hotel was not that busy. But having been out on the drink allday nothing was going to bother me getting a nights kip.
The breakfast the next morning was basic but tasty. I ate it all.
Bottom line - with most places in Blackpool turning stag parties away, this place was a god send and yes, stag/hen's can be a bunch of troublesome people (we weren't) so its no wonder the hotel has some damage. But if you come here you know what you are getting.
If you want luxury go somewhere else you get what you pay for and I was well satisfied.
