“Unusable shower”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

We have stayed in the Claremont on numerous occasions over the years and tried loads of different rooms. Our stay has always beens first class. Great food great entertainment and pleasant staff. Ryan the compare in the function room is so funny and always makes us laugh. The only fault we had this year was with our shower it just wouldn't work, because it was on the fourth floor it had a problem with pressure, reception did their best and offered us another room but we liked the room we where in better than the one alternative that they offered, they gave us the key to another room to use the shower, which was a bit of a pain but we didn't mind that much as our room was big and bright. Reception did all they could but at the end of the day it was out of their hands as its down to the directors to release the funds to do the alteration needed to fix the fault. It didn't spoil our holiday and we have already booked for next year.

Room Tip: Side view rooms are usually better larger and brighter

After yet another great midweek all inclusive break at the Claremont, what more can I say. Good food, good entertainment, good size room and staff very friendly. One thing I didn't like as stated by Jean S was the smokers. Hope this will be sorted out for next year as we will be back again for our relaxing break.

This was the third year we have stayed at the Claremont for an all inclusive weekend.The food was excellent and the lunch on the Saturday was better than previous years. The evening entertainment was of a high standard.The bedroom was of a good size and having a side room also got a sea view as well. However both the bar and the entertainment room did show signs that they needed a spot of decoration.
All the staff were very helpful from arrival to leaving
We traveled as a group and each member really enjoyed the weekend.

My wife, Marilyn and I paid our visit to the Claremont Hotel this weekend as part Friday and Saturday stay as part of a large group get together on an All inclusive package at just £120 pp which included, 2 nights BBDEM plus quality entertainment and free bar 3pm till midnight Friday and 11am till midnight Saturday.

We arrived late at 8pm on the Friday so the car park was full the only concern that the reception team had was leave your bags with us and go into the restaurant and get. Bite to eat and we will arrange car parking by the time you get back, this they did!

The hotel staff were absolutely first class and certainly a match for cruise line standards, the hotel reception, restaurant and food were first class as was the food and entertainment.
The bedroom whilst small was in very good decorative order and spotlessly clean.

I can only say to the whole team at the Claremont Hotel a massive and heartfelt thanks from Marilyn and I plus the whole party of us as we will all be back again and will be spreading the word at every opportunity!

Many thanks for a great weekend.

Marilyn and Stan Aspinall

Having just spent yet another extremely enjoyable midweek break at the Claremont, wemust congratulate Choice Hotels on keeping up their standards in this current economic climate. Our only cribble are the number of smokers using the inside entrance to the hotel instead of the designated smoking shelter outside and wish management would clamp down more severley on this which is after all against the law! We would also comment on the extremely shabby appearance of the rear of the hotel when approaching it on Dickson Road from the Station. It gives a very poor impression to new customers.

Stayed here in October with my husband and two year old. Staff were friendly room was clean and spacious. Nice wee swimming pool too. Parked in seperate car park at the back which was fine. Hotel is ideally located for the attractions with busses and trams stopping just outside although we walked along the front to them often. Would definately stay here again when returning to Blackpool. Very very good value for money.

Second time at this hotel for the all inclusive Sunday to Friday package and it is tremendous value. The availability of brand name drinks,excellent food and good entertainment make this a good mid week break. The hotel is what you would expect in Blackpool ie, Old, creaky and narrow corridors but the room was spotless, roomy and all the staff very friendly. The hotel only has one small lift and at peak times you may have to wait for it and you have to dodge all the smokers in the front entrance when entering and leaving. Car parking is limited around the front of the hotel but it has another car park at the back of the hotel and as keys are left at reception you do not have to worry about blocking some one in.

The hotel staff dont seem to apply the no smokeing policy in the entrance porch so it smells of smoke and gets full of smokers - not happy with this but it did not spoil my holiday.

The hotel has lots of small rooms so when booking ask for a big one and the staff will do there best to help.

You get a max of 2 drinks at the bar but you can go back as often as you want between the hours of 11-00am and midnight and had no trouble getting served.

We also did the 2 inclusive trips - to Fleetwood and MECCA Bingo and the only comment is that you get to the bingo way to early but its not the hotel that supplies the transport so eithjer take some thing to read or make your own way there.

Room Tip: Ask for a big room when booking in and if you are not to good at steps ask for one near to the lift...
