First and best hotel we have stayed in for a long time. Cleanliness was superb. Staff could not do more for us if they tried, gave us extra quilt as bed was too firm for us and extra pillows to easy our comfort :), Entertainment was an added bonus , Can't wait to get back next year :). Thank you to all at the Hotel for a truly tremendous long weekend, Waking up in the mornings without that mouthwatering breakfast just isn't the same :(. See you all again next year :). The fancy dress night on the Saturday was the pinnacle, so much effort was put in by all staff and guests.

Room Tip: we had room 18 and i have to say we never heard a thing at night was so quite :)

Just back from a long weekend in the Craig-y-Don had an absolutely fantastic weekend as always. This is by far the best hotel we have stayed at in Blackpool. The breakfast was lovely, hotel is cleaned to the highest of standards and entertainment was great for both adults and children. The staff couldn't be more helpful and always on hand. Our only complaint was we didn't stay long enough but booked to go back at new year and again next September. A big thanks to Guy, Barbara and Neil see u all soon.

This was the first time at craig y don and we will definitely be back. The freshly cooked food was excellent especially the fresh vegetables. Bar prices reasonable and entertainment adequate. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Everyone seemed to know their job especially restaurant manageress. Will certainly recommend to family and friends. Bingo poor as we didn't win!
