Situated on main road, so some traffic noise if you are at the front. Access to hotel was with five very steep steps,not suitable for elderly or disabled. Greeted by the ladies who run the hotel, payment had to be made upfront, before seeing room.
Room 4 was up 3 flights of stairs and was situated in the attic.The window was that high up, I couldn't see out of it being 5'2'', this gave a very claustrophobic atmosphere. Very shabby room, bedding was all very faded as were the once pink towels, no bath towels.None of the furniture matched and the bedside tables were dirty and stained. Smoking allowed in all bedrooms, so strong smell of cigarettes all the time, not nice for non smokers.
Rooms not en suite, separate toilet and showers dated and tired, but reasonably clean.
Breakfast not so wonderful, cheapest ingredients, very greasy,very minimal. The weakest tea possible,cheapest quality.
All in all a very dated and old fashioned guest house, needing a lot of updating to compete with better quality rooms in Blackpool.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We have been updating our rooms to improve our standard and along with this we have taken the step to make all of our bedrooms Non Smoking... We do have a nice seating area to the rear of our property in which smoking is allowed, open most days..... We are very homely and comfortable and have many returnees who come back again and again, a lot of these do not use or post on Tripadvisor. So why not give us a try, families and pets are more than welcome here. ... more less
