“Worst i ever stayed”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

My friends Went to stay and Would not Recommend such a Dump. Tv's Never working and when asked about it, was told "we dont know".
the lad was very rude and not helpful,
The Beds are full of bed mites, and woodlouses and the beds dont match the rooms for bedding and the bathrooms always smell aswell as the rooms.
The only good thing was fernando was polite.

Needs Investigating. !!

Well here goes...
After a stressful few months me and my girlfriend decided to have a few days away in Blackpool. We wanted a partially economical place of accommodation but oh my god this place was ridiculous! First things first there was absolutely nowhere to park outside the guest house, and the traffic wardens we not too enthusiastic about letting us unload our baggage. We parked our car in a public carpark local which was £16 for 4 days.
On entry to the guest house we notices that there was a musty smell, the carpets were old tattered and worn and the place was generally dark. At the reception we faced the dopey looking teenager who had no prior knowledge of our pre-booking and made us pay cash despite us already inputting bank details online. This was the first concern of many to come.
The lift was broke and we carried heavy luggage up multiple stairs with no assistance and into the room where we would soon be astonished.
There were misplaced tiles in the ceiling... One containing the smoke alarm which was hanging down freely into the room and so clearly did not work.
The window was unable to fully close and there was approximately a 2" gap in window making the room very cold. There was also a substantial hole in the wall behind the television (where the free view box was perched on a chair to stop it being on the floor).
There was an air conditioner hung to the wall which literally was thick with dust like Santas beard at Christmas when he comes down your chimney.
There was limited assortment of mismatching towels which were rough to touch and provided no comfort at all.
There was absolutely no fire signs on the walls or any appearance of safety warnings.
The room had plenty of wardrobe hanging space. However the wardrobes should have been screwed to the walls except they were loose and manipulative posing a safety risk again.
When we finally braved to go in the shower we were soon confronted by the reception staff to inform us the shower was leaking into the lounge; which was rectified by no less than a mop bucket.
It was apparent that the cleaner/maid was entering our room whilst we were out, but it was not apparent what she actually cleaned in the room as she did not change an overflowing bin, replace the towel drying up the shower room floor or anything else. It did appear that some of our personal belongings had been moved around which we found extremely concerning!!
Overall there was a general sewagey like smell and was extremely noisy with the inability to close the window. In my opinion if you want somewhere safe but economical you haven't got a prayer in this guest house. With the state of the room we had no courage to try the included breakfast and we made ourselves regulars to Yates.
Me and my girlfriend checked out a day early after having enough and we weren't so much as asked an opinion. Moral of the story...stay the hell away...PLEASE!!!

Wow where do i start apart from never stop here ever!
Went away for a few days with my partner as needed a few relaxing days but how i wish i had belived the reviews.
We arrived and a young man didnt understand about pre booking so we was told to get cash to pay as they hadnt our booking. I asked my partner if we should go and he said lets not judge and see how it is so off i went gave the lad the cash and he gave me the key. The lift broke and the car park 16pound for 4 nights half a mile up the road!
Nightmare before we even opened the door. Our room was filthy the nets had stains and fag burns in and the window would not shut at all so we was freezing and loud!! The air con had a layer of dust which would not work there was no soap towels or milk with teabags nothing the t v did not work and the bathroom well had hairs and the toilet smelled of sewage everytime we flushed.
my partner decided to go in the shower to try and we was disturbed by the managers son as the shower was leaking into the lounge! Its a death trap!
We left early because we could not bear anymore and we never saw the manager or attempted breakfast we went to yates instead its digusting and needs a serioud inspection. Fire alarm does not work and holes and wires in wall.
the cleaner came in once and didnt even bother to make beds or empty a overflowing bin we also found a nice suprise in the toilet so the cleaners must have used that while we was out its a disgrace.
the hotel needs a revamp and they lack hygine and customer service skills
please find else where hotels as blackpool can be a brilliant holiday but dont have it ruined like we had

Was supposed to be having a 4 day holiday with a group of friends and ending up walking out within five seconds. Neighbours were smoking and spitting on windows, dont even know how they are still in business. Most disgusting place I have ever come across and was welcomed by moths crawling up the walls. Carpets were filthy smelt like a brothel. do not stay here!!!

well........., what can i say......., do not stay here unless u've had a vaccinations, it is disgusting, we checked out after being offered 2 rooms that were equally as disgusting as each other, the floors had not been vacuumed, the bathroom floor hadn't been wiped let alone moped, the towels were stained, horrible place, i could not have slept in the beds, been to the loo, or used a disgusting stained hand towel that had been provided as a bath towel, do not stay here, we checked in somewhere else and got our money back.

Room Tip: do not stay here
