a group of us stayed at this hotel for my sister in laws 50th birthday and from the time we arrived to us departing it was great we arrived to a welcome reception ,then time to freshen up and then a lovely 5 course evening meal and a cabaret in the hotel bar afterwards wich was really good.after a good nights rest in the well furnished and warm rooms,we had breakfast there was plenty of choice just a light breakfast or the full monty this carried on for all of the stay . the staff were lovely and friendly, I found the hotel and the rooms to be very clean and I would certainly recommend this hotel to family and friends 1 of the best weekends I have had in blackpool

Room Tip: ask for a room with a bath and shower they are bigger rooms

I would like to thank Nigel and all the staff at the Elgin for a fantastic weekend. This is our third year doing this trip with the Elgin hotel for our party of friends. Once again it did not disappoint. Lovely rooms fresh white towels, food was excellent. A hotel without a hotel feel, extremely friendly. Entertainment was superb in the evenings. Everyone commented that they enjoyed this year the most, and we all loved it before so this shows that the hotel is keeping on top of its game. We will be phoning in August to rebook next year!! This hotel is a gem you can't go wrong here !!!

Hi Lizzie – great to see you and all the gang back again this year. Really pleased that you enjoyed all aspects of your stay. We had a good crowd of race goers in again – makes for a great atmosphere in the hotel. Many thanks for organising your group – just let me know if you’d like to try our ‘Haydock Park Illuminations Package’ in September.
Kind Regards and Best Wishes
Nigel

Dear Barbara
I was sorry to read your review of the hotel.
We do only publicise that our ‘themed enetertainment’ taking place on Friday and Saturday but do apologise if this was not made clear to you.
We do serve our meals in a ‘banquet style format’, where all ‘starters’ are served, then all ‘soups’ are served, then all ‘main courses’ are served etc. This does unfortunately mean that if you chose to miss a course, you will have slight wait for your next course. I’m sorry that your waiter did not make me aware of your complaint although I am slightly surprised that you didn’t mention this to me in person. I did go round the tables on both Friday and Saturday evenings asking everyone if everything was to their liking.
Many thanks for your kind comments with regards to our bedrooms and our bar staff.
Please be assured that we do take your comments seriously and will certainly make alterations to next year’s brochure highlighting the difference between Friday/Saturday night’s entertainment and that on Sunday.
Hoping that we can be of future service.
Yours Sincerely
Nigel

We stayed at the Elgin on a two for one Sunday night stay, we had a lovely evening meal, and then they had entertainment on in the lounge. The breakfast was lovely, and all the staff very pleasant. The room was very clean and comfy, all for a very good value £52.

We have just returned from a Comedy weekend from the Elgin.
I took my 80 year old mum for a break and requested an adapted room. We arrived late due to a car breakdown. The check in was painless (Very Welcoming staff) and straight away they advised us to go through to restaurant for the 19.00hrs dinner sitting. We went through and the waiting on team dealt with us without a problem.
A nice choice on the menu, all cooked fresh and hot, both myself and my mother enjoyed all our meals very much, although some improvement on the breakfast.
We sat our table for the reminder and were pleasant surprised when some large partition doors where removed to display the evenings entertainment.
Eventually i managed to get our things to the room, and we were both very happy with the quality and size within the room (369) Twin beds with huge walking in Toilet/Shower room(newly refurbished).

Although the view was poor we were very happy with what we had booked.
The whole stay was excellent, the staff throughout this hotel were great, very friendly and efficient. The whole operation run like a well oiled machine. We even found all the guests were happy and friendly, which is also a good sign with lots commenting on how often they return each year.

Myself and my wife have stayed at many Blackpool hotels over the years, including the Cliffs, Claremont, Lyndeen, Doric,The Imperial, The Norbreck, Tiffany's, The Big Blue, plus many more. But i have to say this is my favorite by a country mile.

You can see that money is constantly being invested into this hotel and that they value customer feedback.

Gary and all the staff we spoke to including the entertainment, do a great job!!

Keep up the good work, you have just won a family of returning customers

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has recently been refurbished, you wont be disappointed.

Dear Chester
Many thanks for your feedback. Really good to hear that Gary and all the team looked after you so well. Gary has become a bit of a minor celebrity since ‘4 in a Bed’ – he was even stopped by a new fan when in London this week. We’re all awaiting his big TV recording contract! It’s good to know that our accessible rooms were to your liking – we’ve just completed two more of these this winter.
I do hope that we have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the Elgin – be sure to request your chosen room at time of booking.
With Warm Regards and Best Wishes
Nigel
