The only good things where the food (the breakfast was great every morning) and the staff was friendly. But it all stops there.
It was my fault that I did not understand shared bathroom when I booked and that was already horrible. To make matters worse there wasn't any place to hang a towel or a pair of pants in the shared bathroom. I wasn't happy to place my stuff on the window sill where a dead fly laid there for about 4/5 days.
One of the two shared toilets's flushing did not work properly. There weren't any toilet paper hangers either. The toilet rooms' floors where never cleaned for sure.
In my double room I was surprised to not even have a waste bin. I found one after the third day, which was taken from one of the shared toilet rooms and was left without a bin. This bin was emptied only once. TV and Wifi did not work properly and there were no wall plugs, but just a multiple plug hanging from below the TV set. There were 3 little cushions on my bed, whose look I did not like and seemed they hadn't been cleaned for a long time. I could have done without them on my bed. The sink's water tap in my room was really hard to turn and again was never cleaned during my 9 day stay. The sign in my room said not to make noise when you got into the room, but all the floor shook when someone just walked by. Really not sure what was refurbished here.
The worst thing was with the towels. I was never given fresh towels during my 9 day stay. I asked for a fresh one and the guy told me he had left the used towels over the wall heater, which I had already placed on the floor for changing. Not really sure how many times English people wash in a week, but this surely isn't my idea of cleanliness. I had even used both little soaps and was never given a third.
I did not expect much for the price, but two years ago I was also in Blackpool and for a cheaper price the room was much better, with a small private bathroom and everything.
