This is an OK hotel. I wasn't expecting it to be anything more than it was, so I wasn't disappointed. The building is quite majestic looking & would have been amazing in it's day, but it is tired & in need of a few million pounds being spent on it. But then again, it's not so very out of character with Blackpool itself, so I'm sure many of it's clients don't blink at eye at the tiredness of the place at all.
The rooms were OK, but again, in need of work. The staff were all very friendly. Breakfast was a little hectic & could have been better but I think there was a convention staying at the hotel so the staff were being kept very busy. Probably the best hotel in Blackpool I guess, so just go with the flow & enjoy the Pleasure Beach! I would stay here again as there was nothing awful about it, just not up to the standard of similar graded hotels elsewhere in the country.
