“Brilliant...what more can I say”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 via mobile

Stayed at The Maples overnight when doing the Great North West half marathon. We were very impressed. Rooms clean comfy and lovely and warm! The proprietors couldn't have been more friendly. Breakfast was amazing so much choice and a great big cooked English brekkie to my husbands delight..I only had poached eggs on toast as I was doing the run but they were cooked to perfection. Will definitely be staying again. Thanks so much.

Stayed February 2014, travelled with family

We stayed last night at the Maples Hotel, and it was every bit as good as the reviews have said. We had room 1, which was warm and very comfortable. The bathroom was tiny (the hand basin was in the bedroom itself), but the room was immaculately clean and well equipped.

The public areas were warm and comfortable, with a cosy bar and a lounge from where we could watch the stormy weather outside. Breakfast was great, everything you could ask for and friendly, efficient service.

The Maples is on the quieter Queens Promenade, with a tram stop just across the road for easy access to the centre of town. All in all, we would love to stay at the Maples again and would recommend it wholeheartedly.

We stayed at this hotel last October and enjoyed it so much we returned for our anniversary. Wish we had booked 2 nights this time. Excellent servce again, good clean room with sea view as requested. Had a good laugh during the day even the wind and rain did not spoil it. Went for a meal out and returned to the comfy bar for a night cap or two and enjoyed the company of the lovely owners David, Bob and Ted. Thank you all for a great stay. Breakfast was great again, and we are already looking to book again. See you all soon.

We stayed last minute at the Maples Hotel and I have to say right from reception to check out, our experience was excellent! The room was lovely and so comfortable with all the extras, (great shower!) The food was first class and the hosting brilliant! If you are looking to be treated like a special guest then the Maples Hotel is perfect! The Maples Hotel is right on the prom and close enough to walk to the tower with ease. Transport is right outside the door if walking is a problem with the new trams and buses frequently passing by. Even staying at new year, the hotel was quiet when you want it to be and is especially suitable for families. I would thoroughly recommend The Maples Hotel and fully intend to stay there next time I get to Blackpool! Thanks guys :) Evelyn J

We stayed for one night and it was absolutely ideal. As we have children we didn't want to stay in the heart of blackpool and this hotel doesn't accept Hen or Stag parties.The tram stop is just outside and it was cheaper to get a day pass for a family of 4 then you can ride on the trams all day long, if you don't want to walk. The rooms were very comfortable and the owner is very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was amazing everything you could want was available. I would also recommend the witherspoons pub for familys to eat, it is next to the tower, very fast service and reasonable prices.
