After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor I nearly pulled out of this Half Term Break but now I'm glad I didn't.
From the very start the staff were welcoming and friendly, the hotel was clean and warm, which is great after a windy day on the pier. The rooms were adequate for our needs and the hotel location was ideal for all the attractions - except Pleasure Beach which is about a mile away but the tram stop is about 1 minute from the hotel.
We ate in Promenade Restaurant and were happy with the choice of foods available both at breakfast and dinner.
My 12yr old son and I had a great 5 day break and I would definitely book this hotel again if we were to return to Blackpool.
I do however have 2 negative comments which are minor and personal. The first being that there was no fresh fruit in the restaurant. The second is that our room was a smoking room and although the pillows and sheets didn't smell of smoke there was a faint smell of stale smoke on entering the room. I would make the whole hotel non-smoking - but then that would probably give someone else something to complain about.
You cannot please all of the people all of the time, but I believe this hotel does it's best and we enjoyed it.
