“A great place to stay in Blackpool”
Reviewed 14 September 2012

We've just returned from a 2 night stay at the Mardonia and next time we go to Blackpool we will be definitely staying there again. When we got there, Grant had already 'reserved' us a parking spot right outside the hotel; how many places will do that for you?! We were then checked in and our bags were taken up to our room for us on our behalf so that we could go out and explore the town. The hotel is excellently located of equal distance between the tower and the pleasure beach and both are well within walking distance.

Hospitality and service is second to none; last year we stayed at the Travel Lodge and no-one would give us the time of day there, at the Mardonia nothing is too much trouble. Our room was a family one at the front and the double glazing must be good as we didn't hear any noise at night! Everywhere in the hotel is spotlessly clean and our room was newly carpeted and had fresh decor. For breakfast you are spoilt for choice; cereals, toast, fried breakfast or all three! The owners Grant and Maria are really friendly; we sat in the bar in the evening chatting away to them enjoying a pint.

All in all a great place to stay; we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Mardonia to anyone. Thank you very much to Grant and Maria.

We have just got back from a weekend break at the mardonia. There were 3 couples all adults, we have been going to Blackpool now for 12 years, and were told this year our usual hotel had closed down, so we were recommended to go to the mardonia. We was not disappointed at all Maria and grant made us very welcome and it was very clean,maria and grant was so friendly, and I was shocked at the size of the bathroom it was fantastic. The location was also great. In fact everything was superb and we had a fantastic weekend and cannot wait to go back next year. The only one thing that we wished for was the bar to be open for a night cap before we went to bed, we did not ask because they were so busy and it’s nothing really to moan about. Anyone who is thinking of booking at the mardonia do it you will enjoy it, and you will never regret it. Thank you very much for looking after us see you soon xxx the wolverhampton gang Dee, Mark, Pat, John, Karon and Richard xxx

Wolves gang, thankyou for taking the time to leave us a review, we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Regarding the bar opening times, as a rule we are open until midnight everyday, however we may close a little earlier if the guests are either in bed or out enjoying Blackpool attractions.

I have been staying at this hotel on and off for 5 weeks now due to work. The rooms are very very clean with en suite bathrooms and modern tv's. The hotel is in a ideal area just off the beach front with easy acess to all Blackpool has to offer. The best thing about this hotel though is without a doubt the owners Grant and Marie who are nothing but helpful polite and really welcoming. Oh and the beer is beautiful which always helps!!!!! Thank you very much for your hospitality. I would recommend this lovely hotel to anyone very very good!!!!!

Recently stayed at Mardonia Hotel for a family long weekend in Blackpool. Much more personable than The Travel Lodge we stayed at last year. Being a clean freak the fact that our room was spotless was the best part of my stay but the staff and service were fantastic too.
