“adequate”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

We stayed at this hotel in May 2014, on first impressions it seemed ok, breakfast was excellent despite later findings and it was good to be able to park the car. But we never got our sandwiches and fries that we were supposed to get on arrival, the landlady said that we could have them the next day but still never got them, then she said it was too late, could'nt even be bothered to make a sandwich for us. The shower was difficult to adjust the head fell off revealing black mould around the thread. Then it was difficult to shut the door, we had to slam it shut, finally getting out was a very tight squeeze, the door opened outwards but not enough due to the sink stoppng it opening wider. On the second morning at breakfast I picked up a glass that still had scum around it, a dish that had still had cereal dried on and a cup with tea stains around the inside. The final straw came when I found a tablet behind the bedside cabinet belonging to a previous guest.glad I did'nt take my grand-daughter with us.

Room Tip: If you are on the larger side room 7 is not for you.

Sorry we did not live up to your expectations & we are on shower patrol as I type - !! Our showers are standard size i haven’t made them smaller they are just standard size –Tablets are small and should not of been missed but I’m sure you would of looked after your grandchild and not let her pull out cabinets if she was with you. All breakfast pots are put through our commercial dishwasher but sometimes the odd one isn’t 100%, no problem just leave on side ask for a replacement, whatever floats your boat.
– re sandwiches : the landlady i.e. me who works 12/14 hours days couldn't be bothered you say ? You were well aware sandwiches were served between 12 & 2 pm in the bar lounge & as you missed them on your arrival day It seems I COULD be bothered to offer you them the following day, I know you wanted me to make you the sandwiches that were included in a cheap deal for travelling home but we do not offer them as a takeaway or on departure day as check out is 10.30 am. Your Husband also kept asking for free rum and I defiantly couldn't be bothered with that request. Thanx for staying at SOUTH BEACH PROMENADE - ! But yes we do agree on one thing We do do a GREAT BREAKFAST We do..

I stayed here in may for 2 nights over the weekend.

The staff were friendly and very helpful.

we were allocated to room 1 which was basic but had everything I needed for the weekend.

The bar was the same price as the rest of blackpool so not a rip off.

Free parking, Breakfast was amazing.

I got this on a great deal so i am leaving very happy.

Me and my friend booked the £49 deal from groupon and stayed for 2 nights mid may. Free parking was brilliant as I knew my car was safe all weekend and everything is within walking distance from the hotel. If walking's not your thing, the tram stop is right across the road..
The room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was delicious ( the full english after a few drinks the night before was a god send) and the couple who own it are extremely friendly and will do anything they can to help..
I will definitely use South Beach hotel for my next trip to blackpool! Thankyou for everything!
