“Comfortable beds not a great breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

I have stopped at the village a number of times when on business in Blackpool. The rooms are clean and basic and the only time you get decent toilettes is if you upgrade.

The breakfast is not great and it takes ages to make a slice of toast, depending on the time you go down for breakfast will depend on how fresh the breakfast is and sometimes the cooked food has been sat for a while.

The pool and gym is very nice and Starbucks site is good.

Its fine for a couple of nights on business but I don't think I would book for pleasure as every room I have stopped in has been quite dark.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quite dark, suggest a view of the golf course on a higher floor to get a bit more...

Had a lovely overnight stay here. Clean and cheerful room, with a very comfortable bed. Good buffet breakfast, handy if you like your food. Staff are friendly and check in efficient. nice area away from the tacky central area of Blackpool.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with windows overlooking the golf course as the pool view rooms can be very noisy whe...

We stayed there this week for two nights.

The entrance to the hotel is nice with Starbucks ect. The problem is when you go up to the rooms. The hall ways had food on the floor that wasn't vacuumed for over 24 hours. Our room was dirty drink spills on the desk area crumbs all over the chair food on the floor. No hand soap in the dispenser. The furniture was old and chipped the pain was chipped in all the skirting boards and had been touched up with pain that didn't match.
We ate in the Italian restaurant which was fine we also ate in the pub the food was fine but the rambles weren't clean. And it wasn't really suitable for families in there even though it was only 3.30 pm due to the men in there from golf. They were swearing at the till point where the food was ordered the staff didn't step in and ask them to tone there language down. It seemed like they were regulars as the staff knew them by name. We ate our food and quickly left.
On day of check out we nipped back to our room after breakfast at 8.30 am and our card wouldn't work it had been turned of I know they want to clean the rooms quick as the cleaner was in the room next to ours but surely before check out time is not acceptable.
We had heard really good things about this hotel but wouldn't recommend it to others

Stayed here w/c 23/4 having not been to the hotel for at least 2 years.

The first thing that you notice is the amount of time and money that has been spent on the public areas. Gone was the the old fashioned Hotel Restaurant that I never noticed busy, replaced by a reasonably priced Italian Pizzeria. The pub/golf clubhouse has dioubled in size & was very busy, even on a Wednesday.

My only criticism is that perhaps they could have spent some more money on the rooms as they are starting to look a lillte tired (this may be next on the agenda, I don't know).

Check in was smooth despite it being very busy at 5pm, just the relevent information given instead of the the endless drivel given out by some reception areas!

My room was perfectly acceptable for the one night I was staying with a plesent functional bathroom, small in size, but ok. The decor, as i said seemed a bit tired which made for a rather dull room.

I had a meal in the Victory Pub which has replaced the old golf clubhouse & I have to say it was excellent and, together with the drinks prices, relatively reasonably priced for a Hotel. A previous cricicism was that this area could get very busy at times but due to the extensive buidling work that had been done since my last visit, this was no longer an issue.

Breakfast the next morning was also excellent with a wide choice of cereals & hot food. The cooked breakfast did not taste like it had been under lights for some considerable time, a failing of many places that serve buffet style meals.

All in all, I would say that the hotel has improved considerably over the last 2 years but i do feel that they should look at the rooms next.
