I left a review here previously. For some reason it's been removed. Probably too honest. I don't know who gives out hotel licences or inspects hotels in Blackpool but they should be sacked. This was last minute for us and Blackpool was mobbed. We passed here and it had vacancies so my wife called. They said no double room but...

We stayed for 1 night it cost £90 for a small double room, with no breakfast this was £4.99 extra! There was no hot water for a shower, no hairdryer and the tv remote didn't work. There was dry blood on the pillowcase. Would not recommend 2 star at the very best.

Booked a double room on booking.com had to pay on arrival, first they tried over charging us even tho I had my email booking confirmation with price on, then they gave us a small double instead of the large double I had booked and paid for! The staff were very rude especially the young man that was working at night!...

I've just stopped at by the beach&the staff are friendly, the rooms were clean enough, the car parking was decent as they had the keys for all the cars that was blocking the others in.. however I wouldn't stop here again on the principle that it was too over priced for what it was.. very basic.. but on a whole...
