Booked this trip the day before and recalled it had been recommended by someone to us. On arrival in reception we were greeted by a smiling although busy reception staff, handed our keys and given directions to our rooms. We were presently surprised when we opened the door to the room, it was quite spacious, wardrobe (with extra pillows), kettle, small flat screen tv, dressing table (Hair Dryer in a drawer) and a comfortable chair, not forgetting the beds, divan style with we found to our sleeping comfort later very warm cosy quilts.
We had booked for breakfast and dinner meals, so our first trip to the restaurant was for dinner. We were shown to a table which we would dine at for the rest of our stay, we were quickly approached by a waiter to take a drinks order while we perused the menu, there was a good choice for all tastes for both starters and mains. The food was served without too much of a wait and both courses were of high quality and tasted absolutely gorgeous. The desserts were self service, so no diets being thought about while dining at this hotel, ha !
Breakfast was self service, although if you required something they didn't have on display i.e. poached eggs they would oblige. They brought tea/coffee and toast to your table for you.
There is quite a big bar area with plenty of comfy seating to relax in after the meal or infact any time of the day, in the evenings they have entertainment (a singer and a comedian, while we were there), the showroom is separate from the bar so if you want a quiet drink away from the noise that is possible.
The hotel caters for all ages, there were a lot of families while we were there as it was the Illumination Turn On Weekend. The hotel had a children's club in the basement as well as entertainment before the nights show, so the parents could relax in the bar while there children were well looked after by the hotel staff.
The hotel also has a small pool and leisure facilities.
OVERALL: Like most hotels in Blackpool it was built a long time ago and has an old quaintness about it yet it has had some work on it and is a VERY comfortable place to stay with friendly staff and SUPERB food.
Will we go again? Ohh Yes, we will !
Note; For anyone who holds a concessionary bus pass, you can currently use them on the new trams, which are wheelchair/pushchair friendly (you have to pay after 6pm at weekends during the Illuminations though).
