Reviewed 25 March 2013

we have just arrived back from the DORIC HOTEL and i must say without any doubt best hotel in Blackpool.The staff cannot do enough for you,the hotel is very clean,the room we stayed in was adequate,food to die for not for the faint hearted or dieters...Tram stops directly outside.the guests are also friendly . The nightly entertaiment was ok but catered more for the over 60s.overall brilliant value for money.... one downside the heating was not on in the dining room and it was freezing,but due to the weather im sure it was worse than normal....do not let this put you off...BOOK THIS HOTEL NOW.... George was a real hard worker and made you feel very welcome,a mention must be also made to the waiters and waitress,s they too work really hard and a special mention to Dawn,thank you..Me and my family will certainly book again...

What a wonderful hotel - staff in all departments are really polite and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The room was very comfortable and exceptionally clean. Food was first class and the entertainment was varied - there was plenty of singing and all sorts of dancing but you would be hard pressed to beat the comedian on the Thursday night - excellent. Would highly recommend this hotel - this is the 4th time we have stayed there and can fault nothing.

Room Tip: Have stayed in four different rooms and all have been first class

we have stayed at this hotel 3 out of the last 4 summers and would highly recomend this to anyone planning on visiting blackpool. everytime we have been there the staff have been great food great and have entertainment on most nights not my cup of tea but the kids and girlfriend enjoyed it. the only down side is the heat somethimes it can get really hot as there is a heated pool indoors but on the other side its great fun for the kids there is also a sauna and pool outside which is good. i cant see me ever staying in any other hotel in blackpool aslong as the doric is open. rates are a bargin.

My Wife & I spent 44 nights at this Hotel and would most definatly recomend it to anyone. The staff are very friendly and helpfull food was to die for, rooms were more than adiquate and clean, if I had one slight pick it would be the entertainment which was unorganised but this would not put me off, in fact we have already booked for 2014.

Last time I visited Blackpool I stayed at the Park house hotel and went to visit the Doric to use their swimming pool. This time we decided to take the kids to the Doric over the holidays and it was great. From the Swimming pool to the childrens entertainment to the games room, the children were never bored. We stayed in a newly decorated family suite (suite 23). It was spotlessly clean, lovely decor and nice and spacious. We have stayed in numerous Blackpool hotels as we love Blackpool so much but nowhere compares to this hotel for a break with the family. The staff were great, the food was lovely and plenty of choice for the vegetarian in the family and also for the children. We would not hesitate to reccommend this hotel to anyone wanting a holiday in Blackpool, or the Park house which is a bit further up!! It is no surprise that the Doric have just won the Trip Advisor award again (Congratulations!!). See you again in a few months and thanks to all the staff for making our stay so comfortable and enjoyable.

Room Tip: Family Suites well worth it for the extra space. You get two separate areas for adults and children...

We have just returned from our first visit to the Doric. The staff were lovely. The room was newly refurbished, very comfortable. The indoor pool and jacuzzi were excellent, although the steam in the Turkish steam bath was way too hot. Would def stay again.
