Just got back from our visit to Blackpool/this hotel. Lovely friendly welcome from owner Chris, swift check in to our small but cosy, clean and comfortable room. Had the best 2 nights sleep ever! Plentiful supply of the usual tea/coffee supplies in room but we preferred to wait

Response from ChristopherArnold, Owner at The Derwent Blackpool
Responded 2 Nov 2018
It is a shame you do not read what you book !!! A continental breakfast is what it is and a afternoon tea is also what it is, were you expecting a 5 course meal ? All our mattress are new they are memory foam mattress some people like them some people hate them when you are on the heavier side they do tend to dip in the middle. The heating comes on at 16.00 to 23.30 i have more complaints that the building is far to hot it cost around £400.00 a month for the gas if you were paying the bill you would not have it on in the afternoon, also normal people come to Blackpool to see Blackpool not say in there room in the afternoon. well we are 3 star rated by Visit Britain. Granddaughter asked for more juice well you came on a budget deal BUDGET being the name of the game do you expect if you went into a pub and brought a round of drinks to get the second round free you are given one orange juice if i had of given anther one then everyone else would expect one then the BUDGET DEAL is not a budget deal then is it. Oh and he has a name Sheila its Chris !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris and Rob are great hosts; always ready to help with advice if you want it and to answer questions. We stayed 2 nights and had 2 really good nights' sleep. A good shower each morning and a sufficient breakfast; some may look for a cooked breakfast but we don't: it weighs you

It's not free but I thought it was good value for money. It was £14 for 3 full days parking. It is a very short walk to the hotel (about 2 minutes).
