The Clarendon Showtel
Ranked #46 of 73 Hotels in Blackpool
Reviewed 19 October 2009

If your planning on going to this hotel don't bother, it is absolutley digusting, the room s are so small, with muck and grime everywhere. I never seen such a mis-mash of carpets nailed to the floor in my life. The toilets look like they have never been cleaned. The whole place looks like its never had a hoover to it. One word to describe this place is "flea pit".

Yes its cheap £17.50 per night for bed and breakfast, but I expect cleanliness and at the very least a clean toilet.

It has a very musty smell and the toilet smells like the sewers, I have stayed in some placed and I'm not a snob by any stretch of the imagination but this place was just the pits.

So word of advice shop around we have. We've found a beatiful place for next year just for an extra £20 over the 3 nights we come.

Reviewed 7 September 2009

We arrived Friday night for the turning on of the illuminations.I have never stayed in a place like it, it smelt horrid.

I know thay say some of the rooms are small, bit I think that was an understatement, but I suppose it depends on what you class as small.

The shower ( if thats what you could call it )we didnt use.

We decided to leave our bag and got for the night,returned to have a coffee before bed to discover the mugs so dirty inside (brown mugs to disguise the cleanliness ) that I could scratch the gunk off with my fingernail

.And that our smoke alarm was covered by a large sock so anyone in the room cold smoke and not set off the alarm seems rather dangerous to me.

Woken at half 6 the following morning by the banging of pipes due to someone using their shower.

We left that morning after complaining and booked in to anoher guest house.
