“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Just got back from a 2night stay with my two friends. The family who own the hotel are lovely and they all made us feel welcome and were all polite. The rooms were clean and tidy and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was gorgeous and I'm usually fussy, but there breakfast was definitely first class. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others and next time I'm in blackpool, I will be booking here again. Thankyou so much from Sophie, Gemma and Rio

Just back from 4 nights with my wife and 2 girls,had a resort pass and was just looking for a place to get my head down.This place was the cheapest place on late rooms so booked it and didnt expect much.It was above expectations. was advertised as continental breakfast but got the best choice of breakfast Ive had at a b&b breakfast time was the only time I really interacted with the owners but anything you want they will strive to do.rooms were clean and warm. as far as Im concerned what more can you ask for from a b&b.

Room Tip: indian room is great value if your looking for a head down in blackpool for family bath is ace and a...

My son and I stayed here for 3 nights in august the family which run it were all very friendly and helpful rooms were clean and tidy.They kept asking us if there was anything they could do for us.As they were just new to the business they were wanting feedback good or bad although I could find nothing to complain about one little niggle was the bar not being open.But next time that we stay(which I will be)it will be up and running then.For that's the only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5.Thank you Darren and Lewis.

Not usually where we would stay but perfect location for what we wanted. Bargain stay with breakfast included which was great. Rooms in the hotel overall do need updating but the new owners know that and are trying to build their customer base up first. Owners can't do enough to help and nothing is too much trouble! Can't complain really, if there was a problem they gave us an alternative, which is a lot more than some establishments would do. It's clean, tidy & had a great nights sleep. No noise issues to report. Only criticism I have is, they don't have a bar open. This is something I did miss, as it gets u talking to others staying there and its also nice to have a drink when you fancy one!

We stayed here for 2 nights and was VERY disappointed of how the hotel looked in day light compared to the photos on trivargo. Our room was very small and not what we expected. The owners have recently taken over this year apparently so are perhaps finding their feet. As soon as you arrive there is a sign which says NO REFUNDS, which tells you enough! The room was dark and depressingly dull. I can't say it wasn't clean as it was, but it was very dull with brown walls and doors and an odd shaped room/broom cupboard. We found it quite loud, so not overly romantic. The rooms have damp stains on the celing, which isnt great. We were told there was 1 room left when we booked, but there was only 1 other couple when we were there. The hotel doesn't provide parking, you have to pay £13 a day to park locally. Breakfast was quite nice.

thank you for your review however i would like to point out we don't have a sign that says "NO REFUNDS" im not sure where you saw that, the only information we have up regarding anything similar is the booking regulations which is standard cancellation. I`m not 100% sure which room you stayed in, the odd shaped broom cupboard as you described im not sure what you are referring to,
some times there will be noise as we cant control peoples voice`s if this was keeping you awake i would have happily gone to the people making the disturbance and asked them to keep the noise to a respectable level,
you say the rooms have damp stains on the roof (you have stated room(S) i am confused as you don't state that you had multiple rooms,unfortunately we don't have private parking there are 3 car parks just at the bottom of the road 2 of which charge around £6.00 for 24 hours the pictures on line are ones i have taken my self the world hotel used to be associated with the new world hotel and on some websites old pictures remain but we don't have any control of that

we will take your comments on board and apologise for not meeting your expectations.

Just back home from a brilliant weekend stay at the world hotel. Really dropped on in finding such a good place to stay at such a good price. The owners make you feel really at home, cant do enough for you. We stayed in room 7 which is the indian room, really lovely, ensuite with a large corner bath, plenty of room for 2 lol. When we got there we couldnt get a picture on the tv, but within minutes of me asking about it, we had a knock on the door and it was sorted. Isnt anything bad i can say about the hotel, owners lovely, room very nice and comfy, breakfast was first class and price was fab. Will definately be staying there again and very much look forward to it, Thanks so much from JJ, Kelly and Twins,,,,
