“Fab weekend”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Staff can,t do enough for you, they go that extra mile, yes rooms basic and (caravan size shower adequate for washing. Water always hot. Entertainment very enjoyable and proffessional. Had a great laugh throughout long weekend. You have to remember rooms are only for sleeping in. We thought we would have to go out for entertainment but if you stay here you can't wait to get back from outing so you do not miss the entertainment. They have James who is a professional singer and very good at what he does,he puts on fab shows at no extra cost, Blackpool is quite expensive. We were astonished at only paying 20 per person for B and B I spend more at a night in the bingo.Bar prices very good they do a double house vodka etc only 2.70. Karen, Simon and James are excellent hosts. The waitress at breakfast was fab we were a party of four adults with different wants at breakfast the young lady was very patient and extremely pleasant when taking our orders. Just remember this is a 1 star hotel with 5 star staff and entertainment much more than we expected after reading some reviews. If you want five star bedrooms and 1 star hosts go elsewhere.


Svq assessor who assesses quantity and quality in meeting national care standards to the public, would recommend this hotel as long as you remember hotel rooms only for sleeping in, everything else more than meets once expectations.

We arrived at the Winterbourne for a 1 night stay, We were greeted by Karen who was very helpful and hospitalble from the word go. After an exhaustive day the entertainment in their own cabaret bar was excellent. The service was second to non and nothing was too much trouble.
I would like to thank Karen and everyone else for a relaxing comfortable stay and look forward to another visit.
Before I go dont believe everything you read when it comes to previous reviews some people are just spiteful and vindictivei f they cant get their own way.
Once again thank you for a great stay. Will return.

If you're looking for five star luxury accommodation The Winterbourne is not for you--------- BUT if you are looking for excellent value and staff who are both friendly and helpful you have found what you are looking for.They will do everything within their power to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Make your requests known to them within a reasonable time and they will deal with it.
The dining room is clean and comfortable and the food well cooked and plentiful, whilst the bar is efficiently run and beautifully presented. In the evening there is excellent entertainment both varied and was quite stunning in its high standard.
Although the room was awaiting its turn for refurbishment we both slept really well right from the first night. The bed was comfortable and the temperature just right.
Well done Winterbourne we will be seeing you again soon.
