“1 night christmas party”
Reviewed 7 December 2012

On arriving in blackpool with thirteen of my friends we pulled up outside the hotel. Hotel gives a good first impression from the outside. Hotel looked good inside too, checking in though did feel like it was a little bit of a conveyor belt, with one in one out attitude. I understand the turnover situation and we where only here for one night but I think it lost that personal touch.
Handed keys on arrival for 4 dbles 1 twin and 1 single with no explanation which key was for which room or where the rooms where, which did cause confusion and a bit of rearranging, also one room was not ready and had to wait another hour until it was.
Food and service in the restaurant was v. good although it was pensioners portions. Rooms were a reasonable size with flat screen on the wall. Shower small but room, sheets & towels were all clean. Entertainment was good and bar was reasonable priced.
Overall a good one night stay was had by all thirteen in the party, at a good hotel. I would have rated this hotel as good not average, had this choice been offered on the rating and I would return for longer and hopefully take in the full atmosphere and give a better rating.

I would like to thank you for you taking the time to leave such a positive review.

I am sorry that you felt a little rushed on arrival at the hotel and hope you will understand that this was an extremely busy time of year. We are however currently looking at improving our check-in procedure.

I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed meals with us, larger portions may be ordered on request in the restaurant.

It’s always extremely nice to hear feedback, I will be sure to pass your comments onto the team!
We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

We were there for the turkey and tinsel weekend, had a good break and the staff were good. However the food was terrible if you like potatoes swimming in water then this is the place for you!!! Complained about the food and nothing was done, well I was offered a biscuit!! Met some great people but if I am to return the food would have to be better!!

had a lovely time at the Royal Seabank.. The service was top notch, all the staff were lovely and couldnt do enough for us, nothing was a problem. The food tasted like good home cooked food and there was plenty of it. Being that our age group were 20yrs upwards the staff were obliging and provided entertainment to suit us all. Also an ironing service is a great idea. I would have no qualms in recommending this hotel. Thank you to all for a lovely time.

Back from yet another great holiday at The Seabank! The Turkey and Tinsel experience was great. Celebrating Christmas and New Year twice in November was so much fun. The hotel's decorations were gorgeous and the staff have outdone themselves yet again. The food was great as always. The staff in the dining room and the cafe were so helpful, polite and courteous. As were the bar staff. The entertainment was brilliant and varied. I'd particularly like to mention Danny King and Murray G Mac. They're sets were fantastic. The hosts were all great too. This time round we experienced a sea view room. The view of the sea was gorgeous as was the room. I think I will always try for a sea view room in future. Overall the holiday was excellent and there are no complaints what so ever. The staff and hotel itself are a credit to Blackpool Promotions. Thank you so much again!
