Well what can we say we have just arrived home from a fantastic holiday in Blackpool there were 6 of us 2 adults and 4 children 11,7,7,and 23months and what made that holiday much more enjoyable was that we stayed at the Sands Hotel.
My husband and myself have been coming to Black[pool for over 30 odd years and have always stayed in different hotels each time, because we have never found a hotel that we would go back too there has always been something that we didn't like, well that is going to change because The Sands Hotel was just great Moe and Jimmy just made us feel right at home our room was a large family room and it was spotless and what a difference to get a comfortable clean bed, and the rest of the hotel was the same and the food was great aswell and Moe even catered for the fussy eater (me) Thank You Moe and rest assured we will be back and so will a lot more of our friends and family as I have been singing your praises already.

Fantastic Value for money. The room was modern, clean and had everything we needed. The loaction of the hotel was excellent, being only a 5 minute walk to the Pleasure Beach but you don't hear it from the room. Breakfast was excellent quality and a good size portion.

Room Tip: Room 4 over looks the beach and South Pier but is also quiet.

When visiting blackpool we usually stay at another hotel, but on this weekend it was booked up, after searching the internet and reading reviews the sands hotel stood out a mile, upon arrival we were met by moe who was absolutly fantastic with us and our 2 young children, knowledgable and helpful regarding the EDL march taking place that day so we knew where to avoid, later that night we met jimmy and again fantastic with us and our 2 children. Our room was a nice size, warm, clean and exactly what we wanted, breakfast was great, choice of cereal, tea/coffee, fruit juice, toast and a cracking full english, while the hotel is a little old fashioned its a nice and cozy place to stay, the owners are kind, polite, very helpful and are doing a fantastic job, they made our stay most pleasant and we will be returning in the near future, thank you both very much :-)

Me and 4 of my friends stayed at The Sands Hotel for a weekend away in Blackpool. Jimmy And Moe were very friendly and catered to our every need. The hotel is verry nice and is presented to a verry high standard.

We will definatly be staying there again.

Do not park on the viking car park otherwise you will get your car towed and have to pay £275 To get your car back.

Room Tip: we stayed in room 3, verry nice and big.

On arrival my husband and I were greeted by the owners Mo and Jimmy who were more than happy to help us settle in and answer any questions we had? We had a lovely front facing room overlooking the sea, it was nice and clean with an en_suite and had recently been re decorated. . There is a lovely dining room for breakfst and a nice bar area for a drink.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone to stay and im sure we will be back aswell.

Room Tip: Opposite South Pier, easy access to trams and bus
