This was our fourth visit, and we enjoyed it so much that we have booked again for the end of June. The Elgin is ideal, and nothing is too much trouble for the staff,in fact the staff are more like one big happy family.
The food is excellent, and the staff again were great.It was good to know that there were so many familiar faces taking care of us.
The entertainment was aimed at our age group, and we thoroughly enjoyed it all.
THANK YOU ALL.

Although we live fairly locally, my wife and I were very ready for a break from our busy lifestyle. As an early wedding anniversary present to ourselves we booked 1 night at the Elgin. We were so pleased that we did. From the moment we arrived until the time we departed, we loved it. Checked into a very modern, immaculately clean double bedded room with superb sea views. Pre-dinner drinks on the pation, in the sun (we were blessed), made us feel like we were on the continent and warmed us up for an excellent piping hot and more than ample dinner. The wine was very reasonably priced and the cheese board was superb. Service was friendly & efficient. Post dinner entertainment was fun and the comedian hilarious. It was very apparent that all the guests, including us , were having a great time. We were the last to leave but the very pleasant bar staff never made us feel that we had overstayed our welcome. Full English breakfast (plenty of it) was served by The Manager, Nigel Seddon, who although very busy, took time off to have a chat and inquire about our stay. A big thank you to Management & staff for going the extra mile. Fantastic break & "we shall return" - soon I hope!

Our all inclusive, break at the Elgin was excellent value for money.
The food was lovely, all the staff very friendly, helpful and polite.

I wasn't too keen on the room we were allocated to the rear of the hotel. It was very clean and decorated lovely, but, it was quite dark due to the view from the window being a wall.

I like to look out on to a nice view, or at least be able to watch the world go by, not a wall, when I'm on holiday.
Of course, this is something personal to me.
Others may see their room as just somewhere to sleep.

There was no problems when I asked for a change.
I decided to pay a little extra and upgrade to a side sea view room which was large,bright and airy.

The entertainment was very good, with no reason to go out of the hotel at night.

I was impressed by the fact that the all inclusive deal included branded spirits not the usual cheaper "house" brands.

We really enjoyed the coach trips to Cleveleys, Fleetwood and Southport.
It was nice to have plenty of time to have a look around the shops and markets.
We would certainly recommend the Elgin to our friends.
We will be back soon ourselves.

Room Tip: It's worth paying a little extra for the larger side veiw rooms.

Dear Chez
Many thanks for your kind review - really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Nice to know that we managed to find a more suitable room for you - we always say 'don't suffer in silence'! We very much appreciate your comments with regards to the coach trips, the entertainment and the branded drinks. We have an additional all-inclusive holiday lined up for the 23rd to the 27th June.
I do hope that we can welcome you back in the not too distant future.
Kind Regards and Best Wishes

We came for the Soul weekend & had a great time, the food was great & the waiters were very obliging, We thoroughly enjoyed the music, but we never laughed so much when Nick was calling the bingo---- sooooo funny, we could have listened to him all night.

A party of four of us have just spend a very enjoyable weekend at The Elgin. In terms of value for money it was outstanding. All the staff were pleasant and professional, the bar staff even took the time to research and prepare a cocktail! We look forward to a return visit in the future.
