“Blackpool's best!”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

This was our second time staying here and again I can find no fault at all with this hotel. The staff are all very polite, friendly & helpful. High standards of housekeeping is carried out on a daily basis. The food here is lovely, all home cooked (the roast potatoes are to die for). Prices are very reasonable and well worth every penny. There is entertainment each night which includes quizzes, singing, comedy, karaoke and bingo. Most attractions are within walking distance or there is a bus stop right outside the door. If you don't fancy doing much then there is lovely well maintained garden where you can just sit and watch the world go by. Looking forward to returning again next year. Elaine & Sean (Aberdeen)

Room Tip: Better to book direct with hotel to get the best rates.

Just spent three nights here and couldn't fault it. Spotlessly clean everywhere with good sized rooms and large bathroom. Food is lovely and as its buffet style you can choose whatever you like. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Now I've found this lovely hotel I will always stay here when I come to Blackpool x

We are a family of 2 adults and a 9 year old child. It has been our mission over the years to find the perfect hotel for us in Blackpool - we have stayed in terrible hotels in this fab seaside resort and we have also stayed in "ok" hotels but I have to say we will be coming back to the Craig Y Don next time we visit. The room was immaculate - a tad small but we had an actual bathroom with a bath - not just a shower - we booked last minute so we werent lucky enough to get a sea view but we were in room 1 on the ground floor. We thought it might be a bit noisy as we were near the bar and reception area and also the lift but I have to say I couldnt hear a thing! When we arrived the check in was very efficient and friendly. The entertainment was good fun and just right for us. We had bingo, followed by a family quiz then a short disco - my husband had mentioned to Jamie the bar man that I liked karaoke and they got me up to sing which was good fun - for those interested karaoke is apparently held on sunday nights and the sound system is really good. The caberet was ok - a young lad called Russel who sang middle of the road classics from the 50s and 60s also some up to date stuff - nice voice and apparently appearing on this years Voice! Breakfast was really really nice - buffet style but eggs cooked to order so that was a nice touch. This was the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in with hosts that couldnt do enough to make our stay comfortable and pleasant and we will definitely be back. Thanks again for a fabulous stay.

Room Tip: ask for sea view if available
