Stayed here for 2 nights with my boyfriend for a cheap get away. First of all the hotels location is amazing especially if you dont want to drive. In regards to the hotel the room was everything you would need, clean bathroom, fresh bedding and tea and coffee making facilities. It was a small room but cosy and the sea view was amazing, perfect for watching the sun go down. The only bad point was the floor was covered in hair a hover before we arrived wouldnt of gone a miss. Cant really say we got the best welcome from the staff either. However as said before you get what you pay for and for us it was a place to lay our heads and I would return here again.

Stayed in a family room that you couldn't swing a cat in and was filthy. We were told on booking that there was a resturant on site, this was closed as it wasn't high season???
We couldn't relax as the hotel played very loud music that we could hear in our room from when we arrived at 2pm till late at night. The staff were rude and couldn't even be bothered to ask if we enjoyed our stay.The only plus side was the free parking!!

We stayed for 3 nights, costing us around £75 (working out at about £25 per night). The room looked out on to the main street and sea and was nice enough. The bed runner, lampshade and feature cushions matched, which was a nice detail. It wasn't in walking distance to the city centre but close to the pleasure beach and places to eat. The staff were friendly, and although there was loud music playing in the reception for a couple of hours on our first evening, the rest of our stay was very quiet.
You don't book somewhere for that price and expect to have a four-post bed and free champers. We got what we paid for, which was a clean and warm room in a friendly and well-located hotel.
Simples :)

Room Tip: With a sea room you can hear trams passing until around 11pm and you can't really see the sea (a...

We booked and asked for a room big enough for 2 adults a child and a baby.
First room we were offered was tiny (wardrobe in front of radiator.??)
We got an upgrade that cost us an extra £10. Much better room than the previous but very basic.
Very old matress by the sleep we had. Dirty, chipped cups and rotten tea :(
No breakfast, and tbh didnt pay or expect alot but could have chosen better.
We did visit out of season so very quiet and great location but wont ve back.

Stayed here for our anniversary on Saturday, room was great, very clean and tidy, bed was very comfy, shower room was clean and lovely hot water in the shower.friendly staff. Overall pleased with our stay. only thing i would say is i was looking forward to trying their restaurant but they said its only open in high season, so its a shame we didn't get to try that. floor in the bathroom needs attention slightly damaged and there was no chair in the room as stated, but other than that really nice stay.

We decided to take our 3 year for a weekend to blackpool, 1st hotel was that discussing we walked back out again! Found this hotel & it was fabulous!! We were unexpected guests & when we explained to staff here our situation they couldn't have tried anymore to help! They went above & beyond to help me, my husband & daughter. Room was lovely!! Clean!! & staff very very friendly! We enjoyed it that much I have just booked a night away for the 3 of us again plus my father this time!
