“Not great but ok”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

Booked this mainly because of the reviews and the photos as they all seemed ok
Very small en suite double room but ok for what we wanted but not sure how you would watch the TV from the bed when its facing away from it, was going to put my jacket on top of wardrobe but had a look and it was covered in dust and muck plus there was hairs all over the wall of the shower, very noisy as well to sleep.
I'm afraid I would not book back here on my experience but others probably disagree

We originally booked one night but ended up staying 2. The owner was very polite, welcoming and accomodating. We had room 4 with a view of the tower. The room was large with an excellent bed. There was some noise from sea gulls but it didn't keep us awake, I would definitely recommend this b&b. In the morning the owner took us to the cafe round the corner where we got a discount on breakfast.

Room Tip: Room 4 is large with a great bed and a view of the tower

We travelled from London with our family to stay in Blackpool and found Wilsons Hotel to be a perfect b&b. It is right in the centre and very reasonably priced. It's clean, very well maintained and smelt refreshing as we entered. The owners (a young couple) welcomed us very well and were always willing to help us out of their way with parking and showed us various dining options around. We would definitely go back during illuminations and for a longer stay for sure. 5 star wilsons!!! Thank you for making our stay a pleasant one.

Just returned from a 2 day stay at Wilsons. I have never been rung by an owner ( in the afternoon) to see if we were going to check in as he had to go out. This was all we saw of the staff. The next day a note was left on a door with a phone number in case of emergencies. We checked out, correction we left our keys in the deserted dining room. So no feedback on stay could be given then. The hotel is in a great position and is very clean. However don't ask for room 2, nowhere to hang any clothes just some hooks and a few hangers. If my husband and I had unpacked our clothes into the 2 living room cupboards there was nowhere to put our case. How anyone could stay in this room for a week I do not know!!! The other guests which kept us awake talking at 2.30am did not make this stay pleasant. I get the feeling, reading other reviews and with my own experience, that this is more a hotel for groups of young people and not families. We did travel with our son and granddaughter their triple room was larger than ours but they too were kept awake by other guests, of course we could not discuss this with any staff when we left today and we will not return.

Room Tip: Make sure that you don't get room 2.

Dear Ms. Ann Mabon,

Thanks a lot for taking time to write review & appreciating our distinguished cleanliness & central location. We also are very considerate towards the points you raised & looking very much forward to resolve them on our top priority. We feel apologetic that one of our hundreds of guest went dissatisfied. Please accept our sincere apology as we needed to attend an appointment for which we left our staff behind in case any of our guest calls in, along with our direct number of contact, just in case. We wish you were there when we had chats with your daughter in law a few times & if we knew slightest, we could move you to the room of your own choice without any extra cost just because at wilsons, all of us have a 'can do attitude' towards our guests satisfaction as acknowledged by other guests through their reviews on tripadvisor.

You are more than welcome to visit us again & we promise to offer you free upgrade in to our superior double en suite room. Just a way to make it up. Please feel free to give us a call @ 01253 749244 where there's always a special offer awaits a call !

Thanks

We went at the start of AUgust for a mates birthday bash. Even though the hotel doesnt normally have parties the owner was nothing short than perfect. Very polite, very welcoming and overall we had no complaints with anything about the hotel. When we return to Blackpool this will deffinately be a hotel that we consider. Top marks and i would really reccomend this hotel.

We stayed for a hen party - (which the owner usually doesn't allow but bent the rules for us as we struggled to find accomodating rooms else where) i had contact with the owner through emails & telephone numerous times as numbers of the group kept changing. He always replied to me quickly & helped me in every way! He & his wife went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. He showed us where to park, & gave us directions & recommendations for what we required. His wife even made us a cup of tea, even though we had the facilities in our rooms! & they let us use their refridgerator for our drinks to chill them :-) She was a lovely lady & both of them kept asking if we needed anything. on day of departure we headed into town & they told us we were still welcome to use facilities until we left Blackpool, which we did go back to use toilets before our journey! B&B was lovely & candles lit made it a lovely atmosphere. A lot nicer than some of the others in town. The rooms were comfortable & clean :-) The showers were a little tempermental with the speed of water & temperature but that was the only negative in the whole experience. For customer service, value & location it was ideal... the thing that stood out the most for all of us was the friendliness of the owners... outstanding! :-)
