Reviewed 4 August 2013

Myself and my partner have just returned from a one night stay at the Canberra Hotel. Nice, comfortable hotel with lovely owners. Visited an amazing resturant called Toast just up the road after the owners recommending it, lovely food and gorgeous cocktails. Will definately return to the Canberra again x

We were a party of 6 staying in 3 rooms for 3-10 nights. We initially stayed at another hotel which didn't meet with our standards at all. Transferring to The Canberra Hotel was the best thing we could have done. The Canberra Hotel is clean, modern, beautifully decorated and when you walk in through the door it smells so fresh and lovely! The rooms are beautiful, airy and spacious with very comfy beds. The price is right! The owners, Louise and Dave, are absolutely terrific, friendly and super helpful. Would recommend this hotel to you in a heartbeat. They also have a nice bar with a good selection and a snooker table, which is nice if you want to relax at 'home base' in the evening. The promenade is only 5 minutes down the road and also a 5 minutes walk to the tram stop which takes you to the city centre.
We are looking forward to coming back to the Canberra Hotel!

Stayed here for 2 nights, just got home, and it was lovely. The rooms have been decorated to a high standard and I believe more improvements are being made. The owners were absolutely fantastic, they were really friendly and couldn't do enough for me. I would 100% stay here again!

Stayed here for 2 nights with a large party. The rooms were fantastic, beautifully decorated and clean. Tea/coffee & biscuits, turned down beds and other little touches made us all feel special. The owners couldn't have done more for us and created a very warm friendly atmosphere. Very reasonable rates. It's all you need for a stay in Blackpool. We've all said we'd defiantly be back

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
When we were trying to book up for our family holiday each year, wherever we wanted to stay, it was so difficult, to get a Hotel to take two adults, at least 3 children, one of whom had food intolerances and our 3 family dogs, or if there was some Hotel available, we needed a second mortgage to pay for the privilege and so invariably we ended staying in a caravan. Nothing wrong with that but when you have to cater for the family all year round, it is so nice to be waited on and have everything done for you during your holiday. Our policy as far as our Hotel is concerned is to overcome all of those problems, to operate virtually a 4 star Hotel, be spotlessly clean, cater for food intolerances and pets and all at a price that everybody can afford. Blackpool is a wonderful location for a short break or for your annual holiday, either with the family, as a couple or to enjoy between business meetings. The Canberra Hotel is in a great position, close to the seafront and all the attractions, such as the Pleasure Beach, Blackpool Tower and the Golden Mile. We are a family operated, fully licensed Hotel and have a lovely, relaxing bar area where you can enjoy a few drinks after a busy day of sight-seeing and enjoying yourselves. We offer bed and breakfast with optional evening meal and a Dining Room, serving up a wide variety of tasty options, and catering for food intolerances / preferences. ... more   less
