“Great p[lace to stay”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

Me and my wife have just come back from blackpool having stayed in bells/north beach apartments and I must say that we found our stay to be very good,the owner was very polite and helpful,the room we found to be clean with everything that we needed to enjoy our stay,it was situated right on the front with good access to the shops and the beach.
All that is left for me to say is that I will be stayed here again and a big thank you to the owner for a pleasant stay.

Mr & Mrs Gunnery,Cheshire.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the property are quieter.

its a crappy, stale, well used place, no doubt..... but its very cheap, its location is perfect and the owner is uniqe....... We left it as we found it, having spent 4 hours there sleeping after the club a few doors down...... its a doss house for party goers...... simple!!

Well where to start, arrived having walked up and down prom, finally found the place, which has changed name to North Shore Appartments..Went to book in a woman appeared from behind a door, disapeared, came back with key, took my money, told us upstairs on left and disapeared again. Went into room, dog hairs everywhere, so had to hoover straight away as teenage daughter is asthmatic.. Thought lets have a cup of tea... Had to wash EVERYTHING!! as cups, plates, cutlery etc was covered in grease, took one look at chipped, stained mugs and decided tea can wait.. Had to buy mugs from nearest shop as didn't want to use mugs in flat.. Bit chilly when we got back that night so thought put heater on ... DIDN'T WORK!! Found out why dishes were greasy.. NO HOT WATER AT KITCHEN SINK... My mam ended up sleeping in bottom bunk me and my daughter shared double bed as bunk beds didn't look put together properly. The curtains were once 2 complette curtains cut in half to make 4 panels.. Only good thing is fantastic sea view, on a clear day you could see the wind turbines in the distance, and it was nice to see trams go past.. LOved Blackpool but if I go again I'd stay somewhere else.. Oh would it take too much effort for Marie to write a little booklet telling people where local grocery shops, doctors, dentists, chemists etc were situated????

Do you like stained sheets? Maybe you like a room filled with the smell of stale smoke. These two things coupled with an angry owner / employee who slams the door in your face when you decide to look elsewhere makes this place the number one hotel in blackpool for me!

we stayed here in august and all i can say is we were badly disappointed by our flat! to start with it was smaller than we had imagined, there were grey curly hairs all over the floor, toaster, table, sink etc etc i tried to hoover the place but there was plenty of sound but no suction, so my mum used a small pan and brush to take the worst off it! there were nails sticking out of the ground and the join between the tiles and wooden floor in living area wasnt metred right and had rough edges on it which 1 of my sons and myself both caught our feet on! the doors arent fire doors and the gap around the edges was wide enough to see out till the landing, and you could here everyone really loudly too! the beds in our flat were uncomfortable and no one told us there was a coin meter in the room too so you have to supply £1 coins on top of the amount already paid this cost us another £9 and we were hardly in as the place depressed us so much! i didnt find the reviews until a few days before we went and if i had i wouldnt have booked here! the only good thing about these flats is their location, its just above the north pier on the main road so easily accessed by trams and buses!!

  • Liked — its location
  • Disliked — hygiene of flat and lack of safety ie nails in floor etc.

I stayed at this place last week and what can I say other than find somewhere else........we found out that it has residents staying there on long term basis funded by the DSS.

The security on the premises are terrible with the door being left open all night.......there is cctv when you go in but you cant help wondering if there are ulterior motives to having this.

The place itself is well known for all the wrong reasons as we found out from the police...........stay away is my STRONG advice.
