Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We cannot fault our stay at Raffles! From the moment we arrived, we were treated to excellent customer service, a lovely room, fabulous breakfasts and a warm and friendly atmosphere. We also enjoyed a delicious evening meal specially cooked by Jay for our group of 14. Throughly recommended 🤩🤩.

The Raffles Hotel was class from start to finish. The rooms are stylishly appointed, the full English breakfast contained quality ingredients and was cooked to perfection without being greasy and the location was ideal, but what sets the Raffles Hotel apart are the proprietors Tim and Janine. They are friendly, welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. We were given excellent directions to all the local attractions & I mean local (without being too near) along with top recommendations for food, drink and entertainment. They have worked very hard at building a classy boutique hotel with attention to detail. The rooms include toiletries, slippers, bottled water on arrival and tea, coffee and hot chocolate which you can make in your room. But it doesn’t stop there. There was an excellent beside kit that even included eye masks and a sewing kit. The beds are extremely comfortable and we didn’t need to make any adjustments to the heating, which was perfect. The real bonus for me was the pillows. Rarely do hotels get it right but they’ve nailed it. Put m eye mask on and slept like a baby. Finally hygiene - The hotel was spotlessly clean and I’m fussy! In summary, great hotel, great location, great food, great beds and pillows and great hosts. I’m due to return to Blackpool next year. Where will I stay? No brainier!

We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival. The room was lovely with lots of extras, and the single beds were very comfortable. The toiletries provided were very comprehensive, even included a small toothbrush and mini tube of toothpaste, and the walk in shower was luxurious. Last but by no means least, the breakfast each morning was excellent.

Excellent stay as always. Superb room, perfectly decorated. Such a good breakfast with lots of choice. Well within walking distance of the town centre and the Tower Ballroom, which was the reason for the stay.

The hotel was clean, loved all the little touches, like the rock and rescue kit. They were very accommodating of my friends with food tolerances. Always on hand to order taxis. Just a lovely place to stay.

A great little Hotel (provably the best in the Street), compact, modern, very clean room with chocs, biscuits, a surprise bag (sleeping mask, ear plugs etc.), nice furnishings, enough pillows & a comfy bed. A nice bar room with great seating, all very bright & nicely decorated. Great breakfast, and the owners were super nice & helpful beyond call. Very highly recommended.
