Firstly the hotel is nice, it is very tidy and clean (Sam B of housekeeping does an excellent job maintaining my room). The staff are pleasant, the beds are comfy. The bathroom has some odd designs, for exaple the shower door cannot go into the bath as the handles in the bath are too tall. So to get out of the shower/bath you have to either, A) Open shower screen over the floor, dripping water everywhere or B) Leap over the toilet at the other end of the bath....
My personal gripe is the decision to put a branch of Starbucks in the lobby?! Which is full of golf/gym people, this makes for a very noisey and unpleasant check in experience.
Breakfast was way to busy, having to queue for 10 minutes to get a table, I assume this is down to golfers/gymers using the restaurant, but for residents I feel the system should be smoother.
Overall it is a nice hotel for short trips to see the wonders of Blackpool.
