We stay every July for a long weekend. The cabaret and in particular Buddy Lee is fantastic - Buddy ad libs and feeds off the audience, haven't laughed so much since last July. We always stay full board which is definitely the right choice - the food is always excellent and the staff have being there for years and always remember everyone. My only slight criticism are the rooms, albeit they are clean they are in need of updating. With that said we have re-booked for next July!

Stayed here several times over the years and each time the entertainment makes the stay, Buddy Lee is funny and the Sensation dancers are good. The food is good and enjoyed the meals. The rooms are clean and ok. Would stay again. The car parking is ok if you get here earlier enough.

Stayed: October 2013

We as a family spent 7 days here a few years ago.. We found the Rooms to be clean and the food very good.. The hotel itself is perfectly situated and close to the Pleasure Beach which certainly pleased my children. Close to the south pier and other amenities. The evening entertainment was very good. Plenty to keep everyone amused. The staff were very friendly and they certainly were an asset to the hotel..

This hotel is above average but no option to choose this on trip advisor. The food here is really good. The choice for evening meal is varied and for me it was difficult to choose as everything sounded delicious - which it was. The only problem I had which really irked me at the time was when I chose the smoked salmon starter. The waiter asked me did I know it was actually 'raw' salmon and did I still want it. Maybe he thought people from Liverpool were uncultured, who knows, but it felt very patronising and made me feel uncomfortable at the time. That said, the staff were very efficient in a very very busy dining room. The breakfast was great too and set me up for the day. Mine and my friends twin room was decorated nicely and in fact was the biggest of all our groups so certainly no complaints there, the main thing was that it was clean and the cleaners came in both days we were there. I like the fact that when staying here you have a reserved seat in the club in the evening. Buddy Lee is a good host and funny. There were 17 of us women so he kept bantering with us which was fun although I think some of the other guests got a bit fed up with it as he kept picking on our table, also a couple of the young girls with us got a bit embarrassed and actually left for a bit. All in all I would stay here again, especially for the food.

Room Tip: There's a lot of scaffolding going on at the back and we had a view of a wheelbarrow. Seaview wo...
