Just returned from the elgin after a 3 night stay. It was our first return visit but once again our comfort was a priority. Yes the room was small but we only want to sleep in it when on holiday. Had some noise for two nights with inebriated neighbours with foul mouths but what can you do at 1am . Hotel was warm and clean and when I asked that the coffee splashes on our en suite room door were removed it duly happened. Food is good and hot with attentive dining room staff. Sunday night saw the entertainment,Chris Gee , complete a good weekend. I am sure when reburbs have been done the star rating should increase.

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

We had my mother's wake at the Elgin Hotel this week where the staff could not have been more attentive and caring. The food, hand carved ribs of beef were delicious, prawns and deserts superb. We had family staying at the hotel where they all said the rooms were of the highest standard and were looked after so well. Thank you Nigel and his team for making Audrey's send off in the style she would have wanted.

Hi Shaun
Many thanks for your review. As I said to your father it was a real privilege to cater for Audrey’s funeral. Really pleased that the food hit the spot and everyone enjoyed their overnight stay.
Keep in touch.

Just back from a short stay at the excellent Elgin Hotel. If you are visiting Blackpool, the Elgin is very hard to beat. From it's A1 position on the promenade, the Elgin looked after us superbly. the staff were very welcoming, the food brilliant and the entertainment laid on was top drawer. Indeed, you don't have to step out of the door! I would thoroughly recommend a stay at the Elgin when visiting Blackpool and will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Ask for a Posh Pod if travelling on your own. These are fantastic rooms, well appointed and excelle...

We returned to the Elgin this week for a one night stay and to attend a funeral wake at the hotel. It was a sad occasion but the management and staff were so caring and attentive and the buffet was the best 'funeral food' I have ever had. All homed-cooked with hand-carved ribs of beef and it was absolutely delicious.
Our room was beautifully designed, a comfortable bed with soft feather pillows. We booked an upgraded room and it was well worth the small extra cost. The cleanliness level was of the highest standard and we will definitely return very soon. Oh I forgot to mention we were entertained by Robbie Williams looky-likey the night before and although we went to bed at midnight the dance floor was still full. Ann the MC was brilliant too.
Thank you to all the team at the Elgin for making a very sad occasion extra special.

Dear Liz
Many thanks for your review. I’m really pleased that we managed to play our part in Audrey Smythe’s Funeral – it was a real privilege. Head Chef Gary did an amazing job on the buffet, as did 2nd Chef Gary with the dinner on the Wednesday evening. All the team were glad to be involved. Good to know that you enjoyed your stay and the entertainment.
Look forward to seeing you soon.

A first class hotel, from the minute we arrived to the minute we left, nothing was too much bother for any of the staff, the manager even had a mobility scooter waiting for me. Food was excellent, just enough with more if you wanted.
We upgraded to a club room which was perfect and well appointed with the maid service as good as it gets, would definitely recommend the upgrade. overall an exceptional hotel, will definitely be going back again, best value for money in Blackpool!!!!!

Room Tip: The club rooms are well worth the extra

Have spent many a family weekend in Blackpool over the years, but I have to say this is the nicest hotel we have stayed in, it felt like home and it was our first visit, my mum needs oxygyn and many other things but nothing was too much trouble, the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was fabulous, just struggled with seating at night for 13 of us but they did try to help. We have stayed in some big and well known hotels in Blackpool but this was the best. We will be back. In fact if they had rooms available this weekend me and my hubby would have gone back. Thank you to all the staff. Mrs P Horsfall
