“Lovely!”
Reviewed 31 August 2012 via mobile

Me and my friend went to Blackpool for one night to see Hot Ice. We arrived at 1 ish and the room wasn't ready (check-in is at 2 so we were early).. The hotel manager was brilliant and let us leave our bags while he sorted the room and we went to explore Blackpool etc. when we got back he had our room ready and had taken our bags up to the room. He showed us where everything was and sorted us out with the key.

The sleep was fine with no noise that I was aware of apart from the odd seagull! As check-out was at 10.30 am we would have had no where to leave our bags while skating and watching the hot ice show again hehe the managed was fine with us leaving our bags at the hotel (until 6 pm!)

This hotel is a little gem, well recommended !

We stayed from 23rd to the 26th of August and when we arrived we where met with a friendly and extremely helpful Sraff. The booking in process was quick and efficient, we where shown to our rooms and everything was explained thoroughly, the room was clean and fresh and of a very good size ( both bathroom & bedroom). Whenever we where downstairs we where met with friendly conversation and helpfull holiday advise. The Mardonia hotel is by far the best hotel my family have stayed in in Blackpool and we visit every year so that Is quit a statement, we will definitely be staying again next year and hopefully all the years to follow. I would advise anybody visiting Blackpool to stay at Mardonia hotel, last year we where at the travel lodge and the year before that we where at the Hilton and this has trumped both of them.
Thank you for making our visit that much better.

What a lovely hotel, arrived early, not a problem there, very welcoming and friendly, asked how the journey was. Rooms are very clean and tidy. Every morning they supplied a good spread of cereal, and orange juice. The best thing about breakfast was the you could choose what you would like, end then cooked to perfection!! Along with a cup of Tea. Great service at the bar in the evening and the owners would join us and have a laugh with the rest of the guests. Its like home from home.
Perfectly set for the sea front, there is a tram station just at the end of the road, and you are easy walking reach of Blackpool Pleasurebeach, and Waterpark and just hop on the tram to the Blackpool Tower

Would recommend to anyone and we will definitely be going back when we visit again.

Made the holiday even better
