“Not good!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

My stay at the Albert Hotel was far from nice.



Postives

- Good breakfast

- Central location



Negatives

- Small rooms (can hear other guests easily through the walls)

- Shared bathrooms were not the cleaniest as there was faeces on the wall in one of them.

- Noisy/disruptive/aggressive guests on 2 of the 3 nights we stayed. Both of which were large groups and we were woken from 4am onwards. On the second night we were too scared to leave our room to use the toilet as people were physically fighting downstairs.

- Did not receive an apology from the owner about either incident. Appreciate the manager chucked the boys from the first night out of their room but he then pleaded ignorance about the second night where we were woken by 2 couples physically fighting downstairs and then again at 6 am by a domestic in the room next door.

- Did not receive any maid service all 3 nights we stayed and towels were not replaced. I did however see other rooms receiving this.

- Could not use the tea and coffee facilities in the room as the milk was off!

- The owner/staff could have been more helpful and apologetic for our 2 nights of no sleep rather than assuming that we were hangover, rather than lack of sleep.

- Were told on arrival that someone was sick on the carpet in our room (not really the kind of thing you want to be told on arrival).

My friends and I could have had a decent stay at The Albert; however we must have picked the worst weekend in the world to stay there. I appreciate it is not the owner's fault when guests cause trouble, however we did have to suffer this for two nights in a row. Other guests screaming at each other, shouting, fighting - I felt too scared to use the shared bathrooms during the night. You shouldn't feel unsafe anywhere you are staying. Again, I understand you don't know how people are going to behave; however even an apology or something would have been appreciated and I was disappointed that we had to put up with this 2 nights in a row from various guests - it wasn't just one or two people, it was 5 or 6.

Pros of hotel:
- free breakfast
- good location
- great price

Cons:
- Noise of other guests
- Personally think staff could have been more helpful with this - we had to suffer this 2 nights in a row
- Didn't mind the fact that it was a shared bathroom but it wasn't the cleanest

Overall, for the price, this could have been a very decent place to stay. Unfortunately it was spoiled for us this time.

We felt very welcomed by the staff and the food was great. The room was basic but clean. It is in a great location as it is easy enough to walk in and out of the town. The hotel doesn't have parking but the staff were very helpful and arranged a parking space for the duration of the trip for a good price.

Stayed for 2 nights and although initially there was a mix up with the room we had booked it was dealt with straight away and given another room, we were then moved into the booked room on the second night..both were lovely clean fresh rooms with ample tea & coffee making facilities..fab comfy beds and clean crisp linen, maybe a small dressing table in the room or shelf and mirror above would be an advantage for hairdrying etc? plus a bedside cabinet would be a help.

Had an evening meal on the first evening and it was absolutely delicious! home cooked and plentiful and the lamb melted in the mouth! Breakfasts were just as tasty and plentiful too, lovely!
The owners were friendly polite and helpful it really did feel as if you were more than just a guest with a nice relaxed atmosphere even when they were very busy on the Saturday morning!
Never got to experience the bar as it was unfortunately closed at the time we stayed.

Well placed accommodation for a short walk to the shops,theaters and seafront.

Would most definitely stay again if a return visit to Blackpool were to be planned xxx

Myself and my husband have just visited The Albert Hotel for 2 nights. We booked very last minute and I can most deffo say we were both extremely impressed with the choice we made.
Excellent location, nice and central to everything, excellent hotel extremely clean and the staff were so very helpful and friendly, especially Dave the barman he made us feel so very welcome.
The morning breakfast was beautiful with lots of choices and my eggs were cooked perfect (im very fussy with fried egg).
I highly recommend this hotel to everyone xx
