the sands hotel is a small family run hotel opposite the south pier. We offer 10 rooms of different sizes, all rooms have tea/coffee facilities towel and some toiletries and free view TV. We also have FREE WIFI, but due to the configuration of the building it doesn't work in all the rooms but can be used on the ground floor. We are close to the pleasure beach and opposite the water park. Parking can be pre booked but is paid separately to the car park and varies in price during the season, £5 to £7.50 per night.

So we stopped at the sands hotel, when we got there the owner booked us in ans that was the last we seen the owners until checkout, the room was way to small for a big guy like me, so was the bathroom. Def NOT for big guys and would NOT stay there again

The Sanda Hotel is a lovely typical Blackpool "on the front" building with a fantastic staircase taking you up to your rooms, stayed for one night in a family room with bunk beds. The room was basic but very clean and comfortable, it had everything you needed, equipped well

DO NOT GO TO THIS HOTEL! I was locked out of this hotel as there was no one there, before 8pm. I had explained my situation the day before and left a message that afternoon, that I would be at the Winter Gardens for several hours. Apparently the owners tried to call me but I

Response from thesandshotel, Owner at The Sands Hotel
Responded 12 May 2018
I am the owner of the sands hotel...this guest didn't book through me direct it was through another hotel that he problems with but THEY DID IT through book.com not him or me, I don't know the reason why.We take payment at time of booking and his bank refused payment so it was sent back to booking.com. He then phoned me direct to make payment for his 1 night stay with a different card and I asked him of his arrival time for next day and He said 7pm but I told him the reception was only open till 4.30 for new arriving guests and he said he would be here by 1.30. The reception closes at this time as we allow early arrivals 10AM up to 4.30 then my husband and i can have an evening meal, then the reception 're opens for all guests if they require anything and I'm around until 9.30 10 PM. Booking.com tried to phone him as did I 3 times but it was a lady who answered the phone, he was also emailed by me and booking.com which was also a ladies email address called Sue. He clearly got the messages as when he phoned he said " I believe you've been trying to contact me " I told him my family were arriving from Scotland so wouldn't be around ( I won't go into details but we had bad news ) I gave him the benefit of the doubt that he would arrive at 7pm his stated time but he didn't, I then waited until 7.40 and had to go out. He then phoned Sunday and I explained it all again and he wanted a refund for his £30 which he didn't get so he threatened me with bad reviews on this site and booking.com, by his family, fortunately he couldn't put it on booking.com as they had cancelled his booking. If you read our reviews you will see that this review is a one off but shouldn't really be allowed to be printed as reviews like this can be detrimental to small businesses, however him and his family are entitled to their opinion even although he didn't turn up according to him at 10PM. and I've kept his emails which he sent through our website too...just in case anything further transpires. Thanks for reading. Moe the owner
