Reviewed 27 October 2013

One of the worst we have stayed in, The hotel was booked for 8 couple as a leaving party for our landlady at the local pub. On arrival the owner requests to take your debit card to copy of your details in the event of you smoking in the room which is a £50 charge any damage a charge of £20, this is against the law as he can obtain funds from your account without your authorisation, however your bank will not refund the charges under a debit card dispute has you have authorised the payment by giving him your card details in the first place. The room was small with a big hole in the wall, he said the plaster had blown when occupied by the previous couple, the hole had been there for some time. You have to keep your finger on the button of the kettle until it boils, this prevents customers from stealing them, if you can afford £32.50 per person per night I am sure you can afford a kettle. The tv wouldn't pick up a signal we asked him to sort this out, he made out they were upgrading the tv stations in the area however on further investigation the freeview box was found disconnected at the back of the wardrobe. Breakfast was a disaster only one member of staff to serve breakfast as two had rung in sick, There were not enough tables to seat everyone, people were sat in the lobby waiting for you to finish your breakfast,I think this may be a regular feature to save costs on wages. Car park charge of £5 per car we were not advised of this. All in all a total waste of money would not recommend.

Great hotel, very good location near everything in blackpool, lovely staff, delicious breakfast. Everything about this hotel was brilliant. There were five of us, 2 adults and 3 kids we all loved it, we had a room with five beds in it so it was nice to have a bed each kids liked that. I liked that fact that the owners had kids so they were great with our kids. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting blackpool .

Room Tip: We had five single beds which was great.

great friendly service and value for money,great central location(5min walk from pleasure beach,10 mins from tower) great choice for breakfast with cereal,toast and full english,car parking available round back for extra £5 which beats car park charges or tickets as everything is within walking distance,also after checking out at 10 we were aloud to use the parking area while we spent the rest of day in town,great all round hotel with great service to match at a great price will definitely be booking again.

No hot water was available and overheard others complaining of the same problem. How they can have the audacity to charge over £50 a room when there is insufficient facilities is beyond me. Check out was 10am despite it stating noon on their website. £5 for parking and if you don't move your car by 10am the next morning it's another £5. AVOID.

I made my initial enquiry on the Internet.
Even with my limited computer skills I found the website very easy to navigate.
From the moment I arrived until vacation I was treated with the upmost courtesy.
The hotel having benefitted from a recent re-furbishment was very comfortable.
I would highly recommend a stay at the Wave Crest.
