“Excellent value for money and a great family feel”
Reviewed 9 August 2011

What a lovely hotel. We went with our 2 children (one a teenager who spent his evenings in the room as he had wifi connection). Our room was compact for a family room and no sea view but it didn't really matter as we were only it in for bedtime. The food was excellent and all done waiter service. The staff were very attentive and dealt with requests immediately (I needed an extra pillow). We were made to feel welcome and the owner came round each evening to see how everyone was. The evening entertainment was really good. DVD nights for the children, disco nights and the Magic show is not to be missed. We had a lovely stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone and we would be happy to go again. Thank you

Many thanks for your kind comments. We're really pleased that you all enjoyed your stay and that the children enjoyed the 'Kiddies disco' and magic show. Hoping to be of future service - maybe try our October Half Term package - always very lively and the illuminations will be shining!
Kind Regards

Had a fantastic stay at the Elgin. Our highlight was Nico and his amazing Comedy Magic Show. It was so different. All the staff were friendly and we will be back. Cheers Elgin xxx

Many thanks for the feedback - really pleased we gave you a WOW factor. Nico is always very popular - as well as his magic he's also a very good musician. He used to play with 'Freddie and the Dreamers'. We look forward to welcoming you back.
Best Wishes

room compact for a family, but recently refurbished to a high standard, didnt have a sea view, but not really an issue, as take a step out of the hotel and the sea is there.
Staff very friendly, and food gorgeous. They do 2 sittings for meals, which is a good idea, as the service is brilliant.
Entertainment was very child orientated, and not to our taste as we had a teenager, we did get her free though, which was a bonus,
we have stayed in 4 star hotels that are not as good as this one.

Many thanks for your kind comments. We get several guests asking us why we are only a 2 Star hotel - the main reason is that we don't offer room service (for which we find there is little or no demand). Really pleased that you enjoyed your weekend.

Kind Regards

Took the grandchildren to a family weekend at his hotel, staff are lovely, nothing too much trouble, food ok but do not like to go into restaurant and find my starter waiting on the table already, dries up quickly when weather nice and warm. Room spotless and after going for breakfast came back to the room to find already cleaaned and fresh towels on the bed. As for the entertainment, the childrens faces said it all, to see them have so much fun was great. Tazz on the saturday night had the children doing just what he wanted, he was amazing, friday was also a great night with a comady magician on who had us all in stiches. All in all a good family weekend and can't praise the staff enough for the efferts to make evewryone welcome.

Many thanks for the feedback. Really pleased that you all enjoyed the Weekend. Tazz is a bit of a legend - at a Cricket Ball I've seen him call Bingo without a board or bag of balls - he never repeated a number and seems to be able to remember everyone's name having only been told it once. I'm sorry to hear that the starters appeared to have been left out for too long in the dining room - they should be put on the table only very shortly before service as would be the case with a buffet - I will look into this. Good to hear that you were impressed with our housekeeping - the team ably led by Anita are usually very efficient. Great to hear that you liked all our staff - we're fortunate to have such a good team.

Regards

Nigel

from the minute we got there to the minute we got on the coach to return home, we really loved the elgin hotel, nothing to complain at all, rooms were lovely, clean and beds comfortable, meals were fabulous, drinks were reasonable, staff friendly, waiters work too hard, and the entertainment we truly enjoyed, and to top it off, my boyfriend proposed at dinner, i had a wonderful time this weekend, not just for obvious reasons, i would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed 3 nights HB. A nice hotel on sea front. Not an easy quest in Blackpool. We go to Blackpool for short breaks a couple of times every year, and have sampled a selection of hotels over time. The Elgin we rate high on the list. A 2* rating puts some of them to shame. Upgraded to a sea view room, small but cosy with all in it you will need. Very comfortable bed. The creaking floor a bit annoying with me being an early riser. Good dining experience with excellent staff. Lounge and entertainment good. To be critical another selection of lagers & beer's would be nice. Hotel a bit out of town, but a good bus service stops nearby. Its a big prom' so the walk is enjoyable. No trouble with hotel free car parking.(tip) If you want a bus in opposite direction, go to rear of hotel and you will get an empty bus.

Room Tip: An upgrade is worthwhile
