“Tidy as ten”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2009

Just got back from a stag weekend and stayed at this hotel. It was absolutely brilliant! We had a lovely warm welcome from Liam and Marcia and it's very central, so not far to go for a night out. Would definately come here again

we stayed for 2 nights from feb 6th 08, staff very friendly , rooms clean and everything you need in there, 2 min walk from all attractions, would recomend this for groups and stag and hen partys, Liam one of the managers is fantastic and cant do enough to make you feel welcome, we were given extra pillows etc and nothing was too much trouble, bar is open till 4 am so definatley a bit of a party hotel but when we had a early night the noise was not that loud and we were on the first floor. We will def be staying here again in july

Stayed for 2 nights, very friendly hotel, great central location, fantastic price, room was abit small but was very clean, delicious breakfast, told us where to go, how to get there and listened to us when we were very drunk! Would definately stay again (july) as we felt very welcome.

Had a fab weekend!!! .

Liam and Marcia were lovely and made us feel at home. they advised us of some new places that had opened since our last stay and the ones that had closed. a good night was had by all.

Breakfast was brill as always. there is always plenty and ya always feel stuffed afterwards. the waitress was lovely and made sure we never ran out of anything.

I have already booked to come again with my new husband in
summer.

  • Liked — how you was made to feel at home
  • Disliked — only being able to stay the weekend as i have to work

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
