I visited over the weekend and first impressions were it was an old fashioned typical "blackpool" hotel. I only met one staff member(Not sure if was owner or manager) and he seemed a pleasent enough man. Didnt see anyone else during my whole weekend who worked there which i find strange. Dont get me wrong, i wasnt in the hotel alot as it was not a room i wanted to stay in as i felt slighty down graded and dirty. The people giving the "excellent" reviews will 95% be older couples, blackpool locals or common travelers. So if you dont think you apply to those then i recommend you look away from this hotel sadly.
The double bedroom was so small, that you couldnt swing a hamster never mind a cat in the room. We were giving a bed and a horrible blue two seated sofa which was approxemetly 5 inches away from the side of our bed.. now if you ask me, i dont see any logic what so ever having a sofa right next to a bed. maybe you want a diffrent feeling on you backside, who knows. I have stayed in the "cliffs hotel" in blackpool which was 50x the quality of this hotel.
Now on to the positives. The shower "area" was clean enough (apart from the shower rail which had yellow mould and gunk coming from the metal). The room was very well heated, the carpet was hooverd well and the bedding was clean to a certain extent.
Im dissapointed to be writing such a bad review as i take no pride in it what so ever. But for those who might think "aw its got lots of good reviews" please understand that those people will find this hotel 4 star standard.
