“Would most certainly NOT recommend!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2010

As they say, you pay for what you get and I really wish I had taken note of the one other poor review on here before booking and paying for this hotel, as it summed up perfectly how I felt!

I can only say that we must have been in a totally different hotel from the the other reviewers on here!

I am sure the owners are lovely and friendly but we did not stay to find out. The room was small and I was expecting this but it stunk! Obviously heavy smokers had used it before and even with the windows open ,air freshener and plenty of shake and vac it still smelt awful!
The "en suite" was tatty and yuck and the cold water tap was running and could not turn it off. Dont think the room could have been updated for years and years and the wardrobe looked like it would fall over if you hung any clothes in it. The flat screen tv on the wall was smaller then my lap top screen.
Did feel bad to tell the owner that we would not be staying but am so happy that we did.My advice is do not pay for this hotel in advance, view it before making a payment!

There are plenty of other hotels to choose from of a much higher standard, for only a slightly higher price.
Yes I chose this hotel for the price AND because of the very positive reviews from this site and others and I feel totally amazed what others found " very good and excellent ! "

We enjoyed a mon-fri break at this Hotel.At a real bargain price....
Steve and Karen are very helpful and friendly, especially when parking the car at the rear of Hotel as its a bit tricky and small...Our room was lovely and warm, bed comfortable, we slept like logs!
Hotel is in a quiet area but only a two minute walk from The Promonade.If you look out of top front bed room window with your neck at an angle....you can see casino, and South Pier.
The full English was HUGE..with all the usual trimmings.There was a choice of cereal also,and all was served piping hot and fresh.
An evening meal can be easily arranged just tell them what you want.
I would recommend this Hotel to family and friends, well done S&K Oh and Ron ......
Keep up the friendly atmosphere, we loved out stay Thanks
David and Mandy. Plymouth.

.My family came visiting me in Blackpool and i booked them into the marsden and i must say they thought it was one of the best and friendliest small hotels they have ever visited, steve and karen are really freindly and excellent with small children.
Thr breckfast was great and really large portions - the hotel is in a good location for families.
You could not find anywhere better.

Fantastic hotel - steve and karen are wonderful - really friendly and helpful - the room was a good size and very clean.
Breakfast was just amazing.
The hotel is in a really good location, very close to the Pleasure Beach and a very nice area.
We have been to Blackpool a number of times but this is by far the friendliest and nicest hotel we have been to and will definitely be coming again.

We booked this hotel over the phone and I am pleased we weren't asked for a deposit . We were offered room number 8 and after climbing three or four flights of stairs ( I have sciatica) we got to our room and we were horrified. The room was small, the decor was outdated and dull and the bedspread was very dingy. The wardrobe was a do it yourself job with the back dropping off and the shower room was grubby and so pokey you could hardly move. We decided no way could we stay there so we told the proprietor we had changed our minds and would not be staying. We then went for a look round and found alternative accomodation which we founf a lot better

The Marsden Hotel in Blackpool is a really nice hotel, we always go every year and its just lovely. I think for the price of it you get a great deal, Steve and Karen who are the owners are just absolutely brill, they are just so friendly and so welcoming. The only little negative point is I wish the rooms was a little bigger but then we don't spend that much time in them.

You do have tea/coffee facilities and also a nice flat screen TV and a En Suite and its clean, what more could you ask for at Blackpool.

Oh and the bar is really cheap also, so cheap to top up before you head out on the town for a few drinks.
