“Lovely family friendly hotel and good value for money”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We recently stayed at the colywyn on a visit to blackpool to see the illuminations. The rooms were all clean and tidy and it is in a perfect location for visiting the pleasure beach the kids loved it. There was a great selection at breakfast something for everyone. The staff were all very friendly and went out of there way in returning our baby sons shoe which we left in the room after checking out by locating are car on the promenade and leaving a note. Will definitely be going back next year.

We have just returned from a Monday to Friday break at the Colwyn for the last week of the "lights".The hotel was great.The staff were friendly and very helpful,they could not do enough for us.The breakfast was very good and plentiful which is always good.The room was basic but very clean.The only problem being that it was on the small size,but that wasn't too much of a problem.The location was good,it was just past the Pleasure Beach,with a tram and bus stop just across the road.Would defineately recommend and would go back again.

Travelled up to Blackpool on Friday 15th returning Sunday 17th Nov. Staying at Colwyn Hotel South Shore. The hotel is approx 200M below Pleasure Beach. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, remember to bring shower gel etc. Will stay there again. Tram and bus stops are just across the road, making it hand to get to the centre of Blackpool if you don't wish to walk, all day travelling ticket is £4.30 (£3.50 in advance) enabling travel to Fleetwood Ferry on the tram.

A lovely place to stay. Everyone was lovely and extremely helpful. We had a family room where the girls bedroom was within our room but made separate by a tiny corridor the kids loved it and thought their bit of the room was fab as they got a TV too!! Room not fancy but nice and clean just what you want. You could eat in at the restaurant our order a takeaway and eat in the bar which was fab as we never knew what time we would be back. Close to Pleasure Beach and Tram stop right opposite hotel. Would recommend and will return.

A great little hotel.Staff were very friendly and made the stay so much better. Kid friendly. Will let you order in takeaways. Nice bar and good price. Close to the pleasure beach and quiet in the evening. Will be returning.

Our party of 11 ( 6 adults , 3 kids & 2 toddlers ) stayed at the colwyn 26th - 29th October . This is the second time we've stayed here , the last time was 2 years ago . The hotel again was very good , the food was fantastic with plenty of choice for even the most awkward of diner !! But even if there was something else you wanted this could be catered for . The hotel was clean and tidy , the staff , especially Charles the owner , were pleasant and knowledgable . It's ideally situated with a tram stop literally across the road and they run very frequently . The only reason this hotel doesn't get 5 stars is down to the rooms which are all in need of modernisation . This is not a complaint but merely a observation which brackets most seaside hotels around the country . Please don't let this put you off !!

Was so pleased with the visit I paid last year with my Son and Grandson that we stayed again this year. The staff are very pleasant and attentive. The welcome was delightful.. Breakfast is first class.. The rooms are clean and the bathroom towels perfect. The en suite is a bit small but quite adequate and the beds really comfortable.It is well placed to the tram stop and the pleasure beach. I stayed again because the visit last year was a pleasure. I was not disappointed, it is still a pleasure and will be my first choice for a weekend in Blackpool every time.
