Stayed here for 1 night in July with my partner as a base to go to the World Matchplay Darts.
Check in was smooth and room was clean. Had a twin room on the first floor to the front. Beds were comfy (although only used 1, lol!) and room was spacious. Toilet was quite small but typical of Blackpool B&B's. Didn't turn on TV during stay but it was an LG flat screen number on the wall which is better than the typical Alba 14 incher. Shower was a bit on the weak side and needed a forceful dunt to turn it off. Breakfast was your typical fare but better than the overpriced cardboard fare you get in the identikit chain hotels (Tr#*$l%d£e)!!! Bar & lounge area was still stuck in the time warp it was in the last time I visited but I loved it! The games room still had its Winmau Blade 3 darts board and pool table. The star of the show though was the 90's beat em up arcade machine in the corner. Must have spent at least £20 on this trying to get to the top of the pesky leader board, LOL!
Drinks in the bar were reasonably priced and the staff were thoroughly delightful.
Final point of note and top marks to The Dukeries for the wonderful door entry sytem they have in place. Having come back from the darts absolutely steam boat willy, it was an absolute delight to be able to access my room by just hovering my room card in the general vicinity of the doors to gain access.
All in all a truly wonderful stay and looking forward to returning next year for a third time.
