Just returned from a Two Night stay at the Waldorf.

The hosts Steve and Tom were extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them.

The hotel is situated at the south end of the strip approx 5 min walk to the pleasure beach and pier.

Our room was located on the second floor and facing the rear of the hotel so no sea view but having paid under the going rate I can't complain.

The room was spotlessly clean, fresh towels and clean / crisp bed linen, TV, DVD player, tea/coffee, hair dryer.. Everything you could possibly need for a short stay!

I notice a couple of people have left some pretty poor reviews but I struggle to see how any hotel could do any better for the money.... Approx 15% is taken from booking websites, 20% by the tax man, electric, water, laundry, salaries.... I'm pretty poor at maths but can work out that there wasn't much left out of my bill to go towards the owners retirement fund!!

If your looking for a warm welcome, attentive staff, comfortable rooms, clean fresh beds, a good breakfast and a relaxed drink in a cozy bar then look no further,

Keep up the good work guys, your doing a fantastic job... We hope to return and see you again in the near future... All the best!

Took my elderly parents for the weekend, The staff are great. The beds are very comfortable with tea and coffee making facilities. The building is a little tired but the welcome you get makes up for this. Breakfast is worth every penny Had a good time Thanks to all for looking after us

First: is quiant, clean, comfortable and quiet,which made us feel at home,and the service was
way "ABOVE" the call of service.
Tom and Steve are the best hosts in the world,always warm, friendly, and helpful.They showed
us the best restaurants,which couldn't compare to their excellent breakfasts. the only problem
my waist gained 3 inches.
We were a part of a larger group staying there and some of us with special needs,and they
gave extra special care.This left us with a fond feelings about the Waldorf,Blackpool,and England
We thank you "TOM AND STEVE" for making our first visit to Blackpool memorable.

Again we thank you "STEVE AND TOM" for every thing!!!!!!!!

Steve and Tom, owners of the Waldorf, did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable! We were part of a larger group attending a gathering at the World Healing Crusade, and every member of our group received personalized attention, assistance in meeting their needs (for dietary preferences, for tea service, for restaurant bookings, for spontaneous car rides to restaurants and to the WHC for members of our party who were mobility challenged). They were masters of problem solving, and came up with solutions to every little or big issue. When three people had to leave at 3 am, Steve got up to pack each of them a bag of breakfast goodies and to say goodbye. They treated us more like valued family members than customers!

Tom has worked in five star hotels and both he and Steve maintain a level of service that one expects at the finest hotels. Their committment to quality is evident in their support for guests, in the cleanliness of the Hotel, in the delicous and varied breakfast food, and the extras always on offer as needed.

Before our arrival, Steve helped us organize catering for our WHC meeting, visited the WHC building to give us feedback on the premises (which none of us had ever seen) so we could plan our meeting, and gave us sage advice on issues large and small. His generosity and practical solutions contributed hugely to the success of our gathering!

The Waldorf is located within walking distance of the Promenade and its amusements, a variety of restaurants, a convenient train station, as well as the WHC. We plan to make it our home away from home whenever we are in Blackpool!

Room Tip: Clarify your needs and Steve and Tom will match you with the appropriate room. Ours was quiet, comfo...

The folks at the Waldorf were the friendliest, most attentive, most helpful people I've ever met when staying at a hotel. I've been in bigger, fancier places with glitzy gift shops, but the attention we received here is incomparable and I'd choose them every time. They were also extremely helpful via email many times for our large group's during planning over the weeks prior to our arrival. Also, it's right across from the sea, and convenient to all locations. I really enjoyed myself and I felt very well-cared-for.
