Hotels which specialise in taking single OAP's

Hello All

Please can you help, my mum is 87 (widowed) and needs a holiday. I'd like a hotel which specialises specifically for OAP's - so she's got someone of her own age to talk to. Many hotels take families, usually families have got enough to contend with and don't necessarily engage with OAP's. Evening entertainment would be useful too.

Can you recommend any hotels?

Many thanks

Thank you Mazza, I did see you're a regular contributor for Blackpool, I was going to contact you direct.

I did look at the Lyndene also the Bond Hotel but that appears to be more for disabled guests rather than OAP's.

If you hear of any more please would you let me know.

Many thanks for your response, appreciate it.

Kind regards

Carole

Out side the main season, Mid June to Mid Nov, many of the big hotels have live entertainment on an evening and are worth asking their prices as very low cost stays are available as they are all in competition for the elderly guest. Don,t use the Grand Metropolis as it tents to be cold with insufficient heating in the communal spaces.

I have stayed at Tiffany hotel many times and fad a good holiday.

By multi event ticket for the in tower on live, much cheaper than buying singe event ticket or, on the door tickets.

Have you looked on the Saga web site. I think they do holidays.

Thanks everyone, I'm going to try the Lyndene for her, I've also heard that the Metropole can be a cold place.

Kind regards
