“Decent hotel”
Reviewed 20 October 2012

Hotel clean. Rooms small but that's normal for Blackpool hotels and have everything you would need in them. Rooms cleaned on a daily basis. Staff friendly and very helpful. Breakfast buffet plentiful with great choice. Your given your own table in the dinning room that you use throughout your stay which is a good idea. In a good location. No car parking but we found a place to park at the back of the hotel easy enough. Would definately return to this hotel one of the better hotels I've stayed in at Blackpool.

We visit Blackpool regularly, stayed in many hotels over the years and would definately say this is one of the best we have stayed in. The owners and their staff are all lovely and very friendly. Absolutely spotlessly clean and rooms serviced daily. Decor is really nice, rooms modern and very comfy beds. Food was great, something for everyone and excellent service from the dining room staff. Lovely seating area outside. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Blackpool...........and we are already planning to go back next year.

Myself and two relatives were booked into the hotel because the one we were in originally was to say the least unsuitable. From the start Barbara & Laura made us very welcome, all the staff were friendly & polite, clean & tidy. The rooms were very nicely decorated, clean and modern. The rest of the hotel was just as good. Breakfast was on a buffet style and evening meal was a buffet/ carvery, it was hot and most enjoyable, staff were on hand to help if needed and everything was spotlessly clean. There was bingo & excellent entertainment every night. I could go on and on praising the Craig-Y-Don, but would like to thank everyone for making our holiday enjoyable after a bad start. Hopefully we will see you again in the new year.

we stayed there last 2 years ago. it has now been taken over by new owners and we couldn't believe the difference!. the ladies toilet has had a total revamp and is now clean and modern. all the rooms have been updated and almost all of the bathrooms have been updated Barbara hasn't quite finished the refurbishments yet. the lounge has been modernised and is comfortable . we only had bed and breakfast but the food was excellent and all those in my party really enjoyed it the staff are very friendly and polite.there was entertainment every night and we will be staying here on our next visit to Blackpool.

Room Tip: pay the extra for a sea room or room 28 has a fantastic bathroom with bath and shower
