We stayed at The Canasta for 3 nights in June, although the weather was pretty bad for June, it was still an enjoyable break. The hotel staff were very helpful, giving us advice on where to eat in the evening when we enquired and answering other questions about where we could find certain things in Blackpool. They were also happy to let you eat takeaway in their dining area if you wanted to do that instead of going out during the evening. They provided complimentary tea and coffee during the day to guests, when they ask for them, which is a nice touch. The room itself was fairly cosy, however given the good prices, that is no complaint. One of the towels was made in to a decorative swam on the bed on our arrival, again a nice touch. With the room being cosy there isn't really room to have a suitcase just left open, but there was plenty of room for it to fit open inside the wardrobe and, plenty of other draws for you to unpack into. The bathroom was a bit on the small side, but perfectly clean and working. We never had any problems with a lack of hot water and there were no signs of any damp/mildew at all anywhere. The breakfast was good, being served in a timely manner by pleasant staff who were happy to alter things to your taste/requirements. The hotel had a karaoke in the evening, not something we fancied ourselves. Although it was loud in the lounge and bar area, we could not hear this at all from the room. There is also free wifi and a computer on the reception desk in the hotel for guests to use. Decoration in the main reception, bar and restaurant area is different and interesting - no normal prints you have seen a thousand times before.
