Reviewed 16 October 2011

Have just returned from staying at the Mardonia Hotel for a 2 night stay. Its in a great loction central to everything in Blackpool. We were in a triple room (1xdouble,1xsingle) and requested a cotbed we still felt the room was spacious enough for our needs, we were told however had we booked direct an not on booking.com we would hve been placed in a more appropriate room, it was nicely decorated. We did not hear noise from other guests, and the breakfasts were excellent. We will definately recommend this hotel to friends and family, and will book agin when we return to blackpool next yea. Thanks for a lovely weekend.

Hi delly
Thankyou for taking the time to eave a review, We are glad you enjoyed you stay with us and yes if you had booked direct with us you would not have had to pay for a room for 3 adults as a small family room would have suited all your requirements. Im sorry to see you did not have good sleep quality and hope this did not upset your stay with us, we would have liked to have been told about this so we could have tried and rectifed the problem for you.
We hope to see you again in the near future take care Maria, Grant & Connor x

We have just came back from a long weekend in Blackpool 3/10/2001, and had never stayed in this hotel before. The service the staff gave us was excellent it was just asif we were staying with friends. We were made to feel very welcome from the minute we arrived to the moment we left, The rooms are very modern and are cleaned to a very high standard. Also the breakfast was lovely. We got great value for our money we are already looking at going back for longer next year. I would recomend this hotel to anyone its in a great location.

Stayed here with my husband and two sons in August 2011. The owners were very friendly. The hotel was clean and tidy and the family room was ideal. The location was great if you want to spend time around the promenade but away from the noise. Would recommend you book the breakfast to set you up for the day.

We stayed here for 2 days and found the hotel to be great. It's ideally located near South Pier making it equidistant to the other piers, Pleasureland and Blackpool Tower (closed at the moment) and the Sealife end. You can walk but if you prefer to use public transport, the trams and buses offer a good service. No parking on site but there's a cheap car park on the same road and you can park on most of the street.

The hotel is more traditional looking and homely. Our own room looked newly decorated and was more contemporary. The rooms are standard sized, comfortable and clean and you have your usual amenities (TV, kettle, shower products, clean towels).

We only met Maria and one of her staff whilst we were there and they were excellent, friendly and very helpful - nothing was a problem. I did speak to Grant prior to the trip and he too was very helpful. Breakfasts were nice and hearty and certainly set you up for the day. We didn't use the communal areas in the evening but there's a bar, comfortable gaming area and a big plus is being able to bring your OWN FOOD into the hotel and eat it in the dining room (not in bedrooms) and the owners are happy to allow this upto 11pm and supply cutlery - not many establishments would allow this and this is further evidence of how easy-going Grant and Maria are and their awareness with regards to families. I was surpised to see "a strange review" here with regard to the booking in procedure. Regardless of who you are, surely that's standard procedure and one cannot trust people purely on their professional status - one rule for all and surely not an issue :)

We'd happily return and would like to thank them for being good hosts/hoteliers and accomodating our special dietry needs. Thoroughly recommended, especially as a base to explore Blackpool or if you have a family.
Thank you
