“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

We would like to share our experiences about this excellent Hotel with other holidaymakers.
We have stayed at the Doric for about 9 years for 6/7 separate weeks of the year.So we have a good overview of the qualities of this Hotel.Many of the bedrooms have been updated and have flatscreen TVs.There is always plenty of hot water and the rooms are clean and comfortable.It is always warm in the Winter months The food is excellent with a varied menu and several choices on all courses.The wonderful dining room team led by James is speedy ,efficient and attentive. and hot food is served on hot plates.
The reception staff are always efficient,friendly and courteous and nothing is too much trouble.
The main public rooms have been beautifully decorated and give a welcome and friendly feeling.There are 'Happy Hours' in the bar and the bar staff are very speedy and efficient.There is an internet connection for those who need a computer which is on the ground floor.In all our visits we have never experienced the smell which a previous reviewer has described and we can only think that this must have been a 'one off,unfortunate event'. which could happen anywhere. We cannot praise this Hotel enough and we feel that as regular visitors over all these years we are in a good position to give a balanced opinion.The management strive to maintain high standards throughout the Hotel at all times and we have already booked our weeks for 2013 and 2014.

Room Tip: Sea views are very pleasant

We are a hard to please family and had very low expectations of our weekend in blackpool and on arrival it looked like our expectation was met phone in room not working and no hot water.
However to our satisfaction all sorted within 30mins and we where even given a spare room to have a shower in! It got better at dinner with a great reception from James and great service from Mitch. Nothing was too much trouble and our exacting standards where constantly met.
We won't hesitate in selecting the Doric in the future.

My husband and I have just returned from spending several weeks at the Doric Hotel. I can only state that nothing was too much trouble, the staff were fantastic, James and his team were a credit. The food was hot and plentiful anyone complaining of not receiving enough are gluttons even a glutton would have been hard pressed to eat it all. The room was comfortable, clean and very warm throughout our stay, the water was constantly hot and at no time was it ever cold. We were not one of the bingo brigade but as most of these people were pensioners they were certainly not intimidating nor was there any nasty smells as reported in a previous review and we were staying at the Doric at the same time, Value for money the Doric is excellent, staff fantastic and we will be back next year.

Just returned from a 2 night break at the Doric Hotel. It does what it says on the tin. If u want friendly, helpful staff, plentyful, delicious food, warm comfortable bedrooms, quiet location (with tram stop conveniently nearby) at a very competive price, the the Doric is for you! The hotel is very nicely decorated, clean and welcoming. The clientele are mostly of an age to appreciate comfort over extrovert, and nevertheless I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a base to explore the Fylde coast and get value for money. Well done to the staff of this well managed hotel
