“wont go back”
Reviewed 7 July 2012

The reason I went to this hotel was because of the reviews,wish i hadnt botherd.I had to climb 35 stairs to get to my room,It was small,if its just a bed you want then this is for you.The door wouldnt shut if we wanted to put the catch on the inside and on the other side was a stupid lock not very secure.The toilet was like being in a wardrobe no room to swing a cat.(not that i have swung any cats)On the photos you think it might look small, well it is, THE shower did NOT work no water came out.We were greeted by someone when we arrived and shown to our room and that was it,never saw anyone again after that,even when we left at 8am (just had to get out of here) we couldnt find anyone to hand the key to.we were not asked about breakfast at all,The good side was the bed was clean and comfortable the two towels were clean also. have stayed in better places,the photos of our room on here look good but was dissapointed when we got there.

Room Tip: lots of stairs here

Dear,.
Thanks for acknowledging the cleanliness of the rooms and linen, and good service of the management and staff. All our linen are fresh dry cleaned every day and bathrooms and rooms are cleaned directly under management supervision. We take great pride in our clean rooms and comfy beds coupled with 100 percent smiling service.
Please remember that all hotels have basic, deluxe and super deluxe rooms with different price range. Since you booked the basic en suite room priced one of the lowest in the town, you got the basic room with basic facilities. if you want top quality locks and bolts please come and stay in our deluxe rooms and pay accordingly, but hey why to pay for expensive locks and doors once you are here for one night only to see the Blackpool never ending attractions.
The management however feel very sorry that one of our guest out of over 1000 that stayed with us this year has gone unsatisfied. Please be our special guest next time you come to Blackpool with one free upgrade if you let us know in advance.
Thanking you again for taking the time out to admire the cleanliness of hotel.

Stayed here for 4 nights (wk beginning 25/5/12) with my husband and sister to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and to have a trip down memory lane as not been to Blackpool since we were kids, and for hubby it was his first time. Both rooms were great. If you prefer the finer things in life and more modern accomodation this is prob not the place for you, but I can honestly say it was everything we could have wanted - a great price, clean, comfortable, great location and excellent host! Host was very helpful and friendly and always available for help if needed. We were allowed to pick our time for breakfast so didnt have to get out the very comfy bed too early! For breakfast there were plenty of cereal, toast and croissants, which made a nice change from greasy fry-ups. Excellent location for the pleasure beach and a lovely walk to the tower/north shore. Initially disappointed that there was no bar as stated on website but did not last long as there are plenty of great value pubs close by to relax with a nice bottle of wine. Would definately stay again. Thanks for a memorable week and first anniversary trip!!!

We stayed there for two nights last week based on the reviews on trip advisor. I must say, it was excellent value for money. 5 minutes walk to water park and pleasure beach. No complains on facilities and services. The host couple were v welcoming and always coperative to answer any question. My GF was even thinking of booking for next trip. MUST stay there again and highly recommended.

Visited Blackpool for our friends wedding for 3 nights in June 2012, the people there and management were friendly, helpful, polite and very welcoming. The bed was extremely comfortable, even though we did not do much sleeping ... due to a busy few days!! ;) and the room and bathroom was very clean and more than adequate and spacious for our needs, and at a very good price we were extremely satisfied with our stay. Thank you and will hope to visit again in the future. Recommended by Bob and Liana, thumbs up :)

Thanks Shellie,

Thanks so much. As you have already seen that Fortuna house is a family run business & thus we are geared more toward family side of business. We respect our guests & love to welcome if they are coming along with their children. It was pleasure & fun to spent time with your family. Pay our intimate love to the young ones.

Thanks,
