“excellent”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Just arrived back, had a fantastic time. The hotel and rooms were lovely and clean. The food was excellent, from the full English breakfast, to the 3 course evening meal. Staff were all very helpful and friendly, there was entertainment nightly, and it was based in a great location for all amenities. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit Blackpool, will be my first choice next time I go.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

I travelled with three friends on the 6th June 2014. This is an annual trip for us but our first time at the Craig-Y-Don.

This is a friendly hotel, warm welcome every time you walk in. The staff couldn't do enough for you, especially Neil who always had time for a laugh and a chat. The food was lovely and was always freshly prepared, compliments to the chef, I especially loved the vegetables. The hotel itself was very clean and everyone you spoke to said they had never been to a more friendly hotel. We even had people come in off the street on our recommendation to view it. The entertainment at night was great and had something for everyone. Can't wait to go back next year.

Just returned from a weeks stay and i cannot fault it in any way, the hotel is spotless, staff are all fantastic and cant do enough for you! Rooms, although bathrooms are small are excellent! Beds are changed regularly, rooms cleaned daily with clean towels! Food was great, breakfast was a buffet which was good for us. Entertainment each night was also good and drinks are very reasonable! Overall a great place and we will be back next year.

Have just spent a great two nights at this hotel and what can I say ! Five star comfort,cleanliness,food, entertainment, and location. The staff are fantastic and the owners should be very proud of themselves for creating such a high class establishment without losing the homely, friendly atmosphere.

Stayed at the Craig-y-Don again at the end of May with 3 other people. Still the excellent service we have received before, good food, modern, clean and comfortable rooms and friendly staff. We enjoyed the bingo and entertainment too. The position of the hotel is ideal for walking into the centre or catching the tram just across the road. No hesitation in recommending it to anyone. Looking forward to our next stay there.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are worth the small extra charge.
