The hotel is quite nice from the outside and easy to find, a bit dilapidated and looks like the haunted mansion when you step through the doors. It needs a serious face lift and paint job all over. It's on the sea front and a 10 minute walk into town.
The room was alright, small but comfortable although terribly noisy from the guests upstairs and people walking past the room all night, that being said, the bed was comfy and the room was clean. It was lovely to have a pool though, all be it a small one.
We had room service for which we had to pay £5 just to get it delivered to the room, this charge is not adjusted no matter how much you spend which seems like a flawed system, plus, you couldn't charge to your room and had to pay in cash which I have never experienced. The food was mediocre at best, I wouldn't recommend.
Overall, if you are spending over £50 a night, there are far better places to stay in Blackpool.
