“Cheap, Cheerful & Friendly”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

Stayed at the Blackpool Sands Hotel on Saturday the 22nd of June 2013 for one night.
We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived.
The room was small but very clean and had all the facilities that we wanted and needed.
Breakfast was great :-)
Will definitely stay again.
Good value for money, many thanks

Booked the hotel using booking.com and the reason for the stay was to visit the Pleasure Beach for my friends birthday.

Lovely hosts and very welcoming. Even lent me some cotton and a needle when I had a loose button!

Lovely clean rooms finished to a high standard and even cushelle toilet roll! (Haha)


Great location near to the Pleasure Beach. Only problem is no parking being available but we did find a place to park. Wouls stay there again!

We stayed for a couple of nights and genuinely didn't have one single issue. The owners where friendly polite and helpful. Also their local knowledge was handy. We didn't have breakfast due to sleeping in, so no comment on that. All in all a good wee stay.

My trip to The Sands Hotel was a surprise valentines treat from my partner, and I loved every minute of our stay there. We stayed in a front facing room which overlooked the sea and owner Moe had placed champagne and flowers in the room for our arrival. The double room with en suite was beautifully decorated, equipped with a digital TV and a kettle with everything we needed to have a good cuppa :) .. The hotel is very welcoming and homely and at the same time is perfectly situated for visiting the Pleasure Beach, the South Pier and of course the beach! The cooked breakfast made by Moe and served by Jimmy was perfect and everything was made to our requirements. Overall, our stay here was perfect and we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: This hotel is ideal for couples having a relaxing weekend away, the double rooms are fully equipped...

We just stayed for one night, we had two family rooms and a twin all were spotless and comfortable.We stay in Blackpool quite regularly and would definately recommend this hotel to family and friends. The location was ideal for us as we went in the waterpark and pleasure beach with the children.We got a lovely welcome and some tickets for the circus which saved us some money An enoyable stay was had by all well worth a stay here at the sands.

I stayed at the Sands hotel for 1 night. The hosts Moe and Jimmy were warm, welcoming and friendly. The room I stayed in was lovely and clean and I had the perfect nights sleep in a really comfortable bed. I will recommend this hotel to family and friends, and will definitely stay here again next time I visit Blackpool. Thank you to Moe and Jimmy for an enjoyable stay.
