“Brilliant value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Had a great 2 night stay with a group of 10 - owners are friendly and very helpful, rooms are clean and modern and the location is fantastic. I've stayed in lots of similar price hotels in Blackpool over the years and this was by far the best value for money

Back after a 3 night stay over the weekend. Chris and Rob could not have been more accommodating and were the perfect hosts over the weekend. Clean, tidy, comfy beds, and a nice breakfast in the morning. Will be certainly booking for next year!

After seeing other reviews on here, my partner and I were looking forward to a chilled out break in Blackpool in a friendly hotel. We were so not disappointed! Rob and Chris were extremely welcoming and friendly right from the word go and nothing was too much trouble. They were very good at recommending things to do and see and very approachable morning, noon and night. The hotel room was a small double but very clean and the bed was really comfortable, one of the best night's sleep in a hotel I have ever had! Breakfast was just delicioud and the perfect amount (the fried bread was awesome!). All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the Derwent and now we won't stay anywhere else in Blackpool because the service is just faultless! Thanks guys :-)

Just back from a 3 night stay in the derwent, read reviews before we went and they were spot on. Greeted by chris on arrival who couldnt be any nicer, we had a small double room, which is quite small but that didnt bother us at all. The bed is by far the comfiest bed i have ever slept in. Breakfast was delicious, just a pity its only kids who got orange juice. So overall the hotel was spotless, the staff were great and the location was great too. I would definately stay here again and recommend it to anyone

Stopped for 1 night whilst competing in the blackpool ice skating festival. got it off groupon very good deal, Very clean, spotless, Tea and coffee in the rooms, enough for quite a few drinks actually which is unusual as normally you get enough for 2 drinks and thats it and they normally never take in to account the fact that some people out there like very milky coffees! but nope i was impressed with this! no free biscuits but you got lots in the bathroom! even air freshner, new razor etc etc! bed was extreamly comfortable had a lovely nights sleep, lovely and warm in the room, shower was very poor had no pressure what so ever and I was dissapointed at not having a bath!, chris was very very freindly stopped to talk to us for ages! hotel has no car park and was very dissapointed in having to pay for parking! was very expensive and I dont agree with having to pay it not happy at all with that!, very close to the seafront tower only minutes away would definately stop here again just wasnt happy at paying for parking, the hotel does have a bar but it wasnt open very often its very small and cozy nice to sit in, we went to have a drink there once and its the only bar ive ever walked in to that actually didnt have white wine (i thought this was regular in pubs!) and no real ales either but that may be because its out of season, our groupon deal also included a bottle of wine which was rose and very nice. couldnt comment on the breakfast as we had to leave very early in the morning so we missed it. But chris was a lovely man who couldnt do enough for you! would definately come back

Before staying we read all the reviews and let me say, they were so right. Chris was very welcoming and made us feel at home. The room was small but clean and comfortable. The bed in particular, was very comfy (although the pillows need changing, they werent so good) but that was the only downside. It was a short walk into town and the staff were so helpful.

I would stay again and recommend it to anyone wanting to stay somewhere for cheap in Blackpool!
