“Excellent accomodation and food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2009

I live in Blackpool and my son his wife and two young children came to visit me from South Wales. They booked La Tour Hotel for four nights bed, breakfast and evening meal. They were allocated a family room which was bright, clean and spacious. Both the breakfast and evening meal were superb and I joined them for two of their evenings. They were greeted by a very friendly receptionist and all the other staff were very friendly and helpful. The entertainment was first class, They would have no hesitation in booking the hotel again. I can also say I thoroughly enjoyed my two evening meals and entertainment. All in all excellent value for money.

This guest booked 2 rooms - 1 twin and 1 double. The singles they mention were a completely different booking and it was only when they arrived we were made aware they were together. At this point it was too late to change their rooms so they could be closer together as most other guests had already checked in. All the rooms have thermostatic controls on the radiator - it is up the guest to control the temperature to their liking. All rooms allocated to this party are spacious and furnished with modern fittings in the style of Ikea. Bath and hand towels are typically sized. All online bookings are room only and this is clearly stated when making a reservation. If they wished to add meals they could easily have done so by booking for them at reception. No one in this party complained about the temperature of their room or any other aspect during their stay with us. I believe their main problem is that we had to ask them to be quiet at 4am as other guests had complained of the noise they were making!

I tried to book our 1 night stay by phone as I wanted a twin room for the children to be next to our double room and was told I would have to book it via the web site but the rooms would be together.
When we checked in I asked about this and was told the rooms were on the same corridor but not next to each other, this upset our young children.
Our double room was poor and the "bathroom" terrible.
Unable to get the kids to settle I later asked for a spare key to their room, no problem but £20 deposit, only to find that our key fitted their room and vise versa???
As we sat waiting to order breakfast we were told we would have to pre pay for it upstairs before we could make our order.
Breakfast was not bad though.
The decor at the hotel could only be compared to Hilda Ogdens front room.

We ask that all one night bookings are made via our website as this is cheaper for the guest. We have family rooms available to book and it is up to each person to choose what type of rooms are booked. Due to the layout of the hotel we do not have inter-connecting rooms (which is clearly stated on our site) nor do we want children to occupy a room without an adult present. We cannot guarantee that rooms will be right next to each other due to unforeseen circumstances out of our control. In this case we had initially got the rooms together but due to a burst pipe leaking into one of the rooms we were forced to move them. Both rooms allocated were redecorated last year in a modern style using Ikea fittings. We also clearly state that we do not have baths in the en-suites. We have been forced to adopt a returnable key deposit for 2nd keys due to the number of keys that are taken home and never returned. We also ask that as all online bookings are room only, any meals requested are booked and paid for at reception the day before. This is to ensure that not only is a table set for the guests but that the chef can cater for them. This was not done in this case as the group just went straight to the dining room without booking.

£42 per night R/O for an en suite double room with Travel Republic
Nice spacious room with good fittings
Easy Check In
Good Location right near Tower
No Parking only £5 overnight within 10 mins walk
No noise which was good considering it was a Saturday

Only downside is a 10am check out, bit early if you have had a "heavy session"

I would stay here again without hesitation

We booked this hotel through Blackpool Breaks and were apprehensive as we were the only two getting off the bus at La tour. The initial reason for booking this hotel was the evening meals were at 6pm as we feel 5pm is too early.
The room was very bright and airy and the shower room was bigger than expected.
The breakfasts and evening meals were excellent with quite a good choice and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Also we were very impressed by the brightness of the dining room.
The entertainment every night was very good and the bar staff very funny.
The heating during the night is warm which is a lot better than being too cold and there was no complaints about the water temperature.
All in all this is an excellent value for money hotel and would not hesitate to go back again.

i stayed at the hotel with a few family members at september weekend, i totally disagree with the previous review,the food was fabulous, it makes a difference not getting chips with every meal you eat in Blackpool, my 10 year old didnt even miss not having chips. The rooms were spacious and well decorated although slightly warm.All staff were lovely.It was our first time in the hotel but it wont be our last!!

  • Liked — the large room,great food and staff
  • Disliked — theres nothing we didnt like
