Staff very welcoming, dirty carpets, lollipop stick stuck on stair carpet on arrival still there 5 days later.Room very warm one window sealed off the other jammed once opened wouldn't close again.Tv sound comes and goes . Coffee and tea facilities a joke , 2 cups, 4 milk, 2 teabags, 4sugars no tray or saucers.Plastic under sheet very hard to sleep. Food ok but mealtimes were very disorganised
Staff friendly and great location. No lounge to sit in and chill only hard benches in the bar.Very dim lighting in the bedroom couldn't even read I had to buy a lamp and extension cable.. ..

We went to the Calypso hotel in Blackpool for a dance trip about 2 weeks ago. On arrival staff seemed very arrogant and unwelcoming. The rooms were filth, the bed springs had been popped which didn't help the dancers sleep and almost every room which one of us had stayed in had a broken window.

The children had to go bed earlier the first night and only the teens were up and the man shouted at one of the teens for screaming which she never did.
The next morning at breakfast the food was des gusting we hadn't been starved after 20 minuets of waiting and had to ask for food which when starved was uncooked. One dancer and parent had been refused food because there was not enough left

Once home from competition we had been told dancers could stay up as long as they liked for a karaoke and disco which at about 12 the very rude gentleman at the bar said all children had to go up it was a part of the licence which we hadn't been told and he was very rude and was shouting at us adults and our children

Wouldn't recommend this hotel at all

just stayed 4 a weekend, very dissapointing, on arrival and going into room was discusted that toilg tv at et had not been flushed since last guests, sink and shower were filthy , room had not been vacumed, evening meal wasat 5pm but advertised 4 6pm in dining room , some guests were refused meal 4 being late, food was good but service was very slow and very disorganised, and sereral guests asked 4 extra potatoes on 1 occasion and was simply told no, over all the stay was not good in hotel , was kept awake by nite staff watchin tv at 4am very loudly , and was cold in rooms. would not stay here ever again and would not recomend 2 anyone, also advertised that it has been refurbished , we seen no evidence of this,also advertise tea , coffee in rooms and every room having hair dryers this is not true, we had 2 tea sachets and coffee saches on arrival then told we had 2 purchase aany more, not very hospitable of them , and false avertising. , if anyone wants 2 stay there only do so if u dont mind filthy bathrooms cold rooms and being kept awake by nite staff .
blackpool is great 4 famiy and couples but beware off false advertising of this hotel, if u do have a stay already booked there please be aware, blackpool great and have been going on a trip 4 last 14 years and this is worst one ever simply because of the hotel .
