Situated 5 mins walk from the promenade and 5 mins from the town centre. The road is almost entirely simular 3* hotels - have to say this hotel looked one of the smartest from the outside.
We stayed on the top floor of the hotel and occupied two of the three rooms there. Both rooms were perfectly clean and cosy and were ideal for two single travellers. One room had three beds and the other was a double room. On the way down to breakfast in the morning the door to other rooms were open and I could see that they were all up to the same high standard, modern and very clean. Most importantly, the hotel was very quiet at night even though I think the hotel was fully booked so we got great nights sleep. No noise from the street and we had our windows open at night.
A couple of small criticisms here - the shower was clean and powerful BUT there was nowhere to put your soap or shampoo or shaver! Please install shelves to your showers guys!
Also, the TVs were great BUT the flatscreen TV on the wall in room 21 could be lowered a bit as it was a little too high when viewing it from the comfort of the bed. No problem with the location of the TV in room 20.
Served quickly and was nice. It was a typical english breakfast accompanied with toast. Served between 8:30 and 9:30. There was a choice of packaged cereals as well as fruit salad which you could help yourself to.
Another minor criticism - which I think someone else said on this website - I remember there was an ironing board in the dining room which I noticed during breakfast which we thought strange and could easily be put somewhere else for the benefit of the guests.
Hotel was a typical B&B with a small lounge / bar walking through to a small dining area
for breakfast. Overall the hotel is clean and comfortable. I think the hall and staircase area could do with a re-decoration, and definetly a re-paint. First impressions were not the best and they can be important to guests so as (another!) constructive criticism I would suggest they pay more attention to that area of the hotel. A little work would go a long way. Having said that, I only really care that my room looks good and is tidy and clean and it was always immaculate.
Great stay - clean, modern, quiet, comfortable and friendly. This is a very good 3* hotel which I highly recommend to anyone staying in Blackpool. Not surprised that it is ranked so high on tripadvisor. I would definetly stay here again. Sorry for all the criticism - it was all done in good spirit and was intended as constructive feedback.
