“Another great night”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Spent Friday night there with my husband and could not have asked for a better room lovely food great service warm friendly welcome did not want to leave but we did. Only one criticism the receptionist when checking out in the morning was chewing gum this is my pet hate. Out of all the staff from top to bottom she was a let down although in her defence she was polite just spoiled by the gum sorry.

Hi Betty
Many thanks for your kind review – really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. To be honest I’m very surprised by the comments about chewing gum – It’s certainly a first but we will look into it.
Really hope that we can welcome you back in the not too distant future.
Kind Regards
Nigel

Really pleased that you enjoyed our Mama Mia weekend. We have a ‘Riverdance Theatre Break’ in October if you fancy another top-line show. Great to know that we also looked after you well here at the hotel.

Stayed 2 nights with my elderly mom and have to say everyone we met at the Hotel was polite and helpful. In a morning the housekeeping team would always speak and seem to be very happy. Food was of good Quality, served hot and fresh with good variety. Both rooms were nice and very clean but on our return we will upgrade to a sea view or Executive room. The entertainment was ok, only point I would raise is that more people would be able to sit in the concert room if guests moved up a little. Wished we had booked for longer, sorry to leave. Will return hopefully soon. Stayed Sunday / Monday 6th & 7th July.

Room Tip: Can only go by other guests but the newly refurbished rooms are excellent.

Hi Keith
Many thanks for your constructive feedback. We have plans afoot for a new Cabaret room (probably 2016) and we might well go for allocated seating – all suggestions very welcome. Really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.
Warm Regards and Best Wishes

The hotel is nice the staff very friendly everything was nice and clean the food was good a bit quick in the dinning room but some people like that at least it was hot. Our room alltough refubished was red hot we managed but only just. The entertainment on the Saturday night The D. Day Darlings was amazing what a talented group of ladies they are we took my mum and my partners mum who are 78 and 84 and they enjoyed every minute of the break. A thumbs up to all at the Elgin will come back for sure the drinks are reasonable too for a hotel thank you x

Room Tip: room 126 is hot

Clean room,well cooked food and friendly staff, all at a bargain price. There was entertainment every evening and whilst most it was not to my taste, the other guests seemed to enjoy it enormously, so it's probably me. I feel I should mention the staff again as their friendliness and wish to help seemed totally genuine rather than the false bonhomie of some hotels. Definitely worth a visit if you go to Blackpool.
