“savoy blackpool”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

would not recommend this hotel
the staff were unfriendly at reception on entry
rooms in desperate need of refurbishing
there was a lack of staff for service within the hotel
entertainment was absolutely dreadfull
breakfast was fresh but lack of staff meant they were not polite and friendly
evening meal was expensive and not value for the money

The place is filthy with cobwebs hanging from the ceiling lights. The restaurant looked ok so we booked an evening meal but weren't informed that it was a self service bun-fight. The food was atrocious and when we asked a member of staff if we could order a bottle of wine we were told to go to the bar. I didn't bother as I'd seen the long queue for drinks on our way into the 'canteen' The barman was actually very helpful when we did visit the bar and I made sure that I 'doubled up' rather than having to keep returning to the queue. He recommended an excellent Italian restaurant in Bispham called La Piazza which we visited the following night and was as good as we'd been told.
The main reasons for selecting the Savoy were the car parking, which turned out to be very limited, and the evening entertainment which turned out to be the elderly children's entertainer staying on and warbling to a backing track of 50's rubbish which nobody was listening to. I believe that Britannia Hotels who operate this establishment are not concerned about the individual visitor's experience as they seem to have a steady flow of coach trips to fill the dump.

Room Tip: Unless you've specified a sea view you'll be looking at the back or side of the building, wh...

Booked this hotel on a recommendation from a friend, so didn't bother to check reviews. We were checked in efficiently by a friendly female staff member, but I didn't expect to be charged £1.50 for using a debit card. The lifts only hold three people, so you can experience a bit of a wait. Although the hotel is supposed to be non-smoking, the corridor to our room smelled strongly of smoke. I heard a fellow guest remarking on it too. Our room was very dated, the carpet was threadbare in places, one chair was stained and the other had cigarette burns on it. The wallpaper was dirty and peeling and the TV was around 20 years old. The bathroom wasn't very clean with dirt and hairs in the bath. We were with friends who's room was just as dated as ours and their toilet seat was cracked right through on one side. They reported this before going out for the evening. On their return they discovered it had been 'repaired' with red electrician's tape! On the positive side, the bed was comfortable and the room was warm enough for us. Breakfast was ok, with a good choice of cereals, fruit and hot items, although the sausages weren't very nice. All in all this hotel is due for a complete overhaul and I wouldn't consider staying here in the near future.

So the parking is okay. And the location is good as it's out of the way of the noise but close enough for a cheap taxi ride. But once your get parked I didn't dare move the car for if I didn't get a space again!
We went for a two night break in the summer. It was so appallingly dirty and vile we got a free stay!
Just been and it was just the same! It's disgusting dirty, especially the bathroom in both rooms we had. The windows were broken so couldn't be used and the condensation so bad it was trapped inside the double glazing so we couldn't see a thing.
The carpet was worn thin, the bed looked like it had been slept in. The tv had one channel only and we asked them to come and get it to work, never did.
The beds were ok for one night but very old and itchy!
It was just not worth the money and it was absolutely filthy.
Never ever ever again will I stay here.
The dining tables are sticky and unclean and the food is just basic. Very average and not what you want. Even the cereal is cheap, e.g not Kellogg's but cheap makes that are chewy and soft.
No thankyou!
Do not waste your money!

Thought the name meant it would be posh, but maybe that's just me, we arrived here, getting somewhere to park was nightmare as car park and surrounding streets were full, after check in went to bar, lager was flat and even after asking for another every brand we got offered was flat, maybe that's why it was cheap, room wasn't up to much either, really old fashioned and needed a complete refurb, shower didn't work either, food menu was al a carte type with not a great deal of variety, ended up having a mc ds instead, would only recommend if you are over 100yrs old too.
