The Gr8 hotel is truly Gr8. Had an abosolutely fantastic time in Blackpool with my mates on a stag weekend and this was made even better with our stay in this hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful about where to go in town and the location is perfect for a night out.the bar is also a big plus if your looking to have a few drinks before hiitng the town

Review by : Gordon Mavis, Scotland

I booked this then came across the reviews below, which put me on a panic. Now I must say i'm pleased I dint cancel and mess around to find some where else.

OK Its not the Hilton but its clean, well priced with friendly and helpful staff and The breakfast was great as well..

Its also located close enough to walk (approx 10mins) to the town centre and promenade.

I've been lucky enough (so far) not to have had to stay in a doss house - well I reckon I've had the experience now. This place is a shambles. Grim is being kind. I wasn't expecting the Ritz Carlton as I looked at the website beforehand and at the price was expecting basic. However in the flesh it was a site to behold. The lounge was eighties style but not retro design - actually decorated about 1983 and not touched since. The rooms were shocking - no hot water - no working showers. The television didnt work but that was OK - I wasnt staying in the place for any longer than nessessary. On the plus side the staff were nice enough but for somewhere to stay needs to be avoided - theres much better places costing in or around the same money around the corner

I don't understand why this comment has been made!
We are a well placed Town Centre Hotel with, reasonable standard geared up for groups. We work hard in making sure that the right people book our hotel. We do have families stay some who come back year after year.
Please read a good selection of comments..

This Hotel is without doubt the WORST I've ever stayed in. From the minute we walked in I knew it was going to be bad, the smell was enough to tell me that. When we got to the rooms it got worse, they were small, dirty and cold. The bathroom had no light in it and a hole in the ceiling and the shower couldn't even give us hot water. We had 5 rooms booked for our group and not one room had hot water. If your thinking of staying here, DON'T!
