“Worse experience yet and all the family go to blackpool every year!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

The man has terrible manners! Wont do nothing for you, We were really tired from the trip down so had a nap straight away, wen we woke up we made the bed and under my pillow was a dead spider and loads of blonde hairs and my hair is black so the beds obviously hadnt been cleaned neither had the shower as i found loads in ther too, iv had better breakfast at a porter cafe! I would never stay here again if u payed me, owner needs to go on a customer service course seriously would not recommend this hotel!! Not wile this man ownes it anyway.

Please be aware since my last review on the cowley hotel
it has now changed hands and i would now not recommend this hotel
we stay'd at a hotel owned by the new owner and we were not impressed by the owners
attitude towards his guests everything you asked him for seemed to be too much trouble

Stayed August 2013, travelled with family

I had a week at the very welcoming Cowley Hotel in Blackpool for the October half term week with my five-year-old son and it couldn't have been better. The owner Lyndsay was very friendly and helpful and cooked one superb breakfast! Extra tea/coffee/juice/milk/toast was always available, and you could amend the breakfast to what you wanted. The cereals were all branded and a good choice. Our room was fine, TV worked great. The bar was friendly and served a limited but excellent choice and at great prices. The location couldn't have been better being on the seafront with walking distance to all the piers and attractions, plus the tram stop was just opposite as well. For a family break, I couldn't have wished for anything better.

Lyndsey and her family couldn't have done it better. I have stayed here twice now for two different occassions. Perfect for nights out and also family stays. Rooms are spotless and staff are so caring and considerate. Breakfast is beaut too. This family are just finding their feet setting up a b and b and their wrok ethic to do so amazing. Cant wait to come back in April. xxx See you soon and keep up the good work. Ignore any bad comments some people just expect far too much. x
