“Army reunion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013 via mobile

Perfect week end hotel was great James over efficient very good if anything to have a moan just a little bit warm but by god you needed that when you went outside it was freezing. Met lots of great people and even a dead one long story thanks very much to everyone that came. And to Tug who organised it. And to Brian Fairhurst for showing me his photos.

Stayed April 2013, travelled with friends

Just spent a lovely weekend at the Doric in Blackpool. Room was lovely, and spotless. All hotel staff very efficient and so friendly nothing was a bother to them. Feel I must comment on the front door brass,s they are well worth a look always bright and sparkling always a sign of a happy house.

Room Tip: All rooms were lovely my only complaint is that some of them are a bit too warm. I was in a group an...

We were staying in Blackpool for the first time. We decided to stay at the Doric.There are no adjectives to this except for EXCELLENT !! The reviews expressed were totally correct .The staff were exceptional,and can you pass on my comments to JAMES in the restaurant who went out of his way to answer a question that ,although he was busy,he got us a satisfactory answer..

Room Tip: Have a smoking section from rooms 67

nice comfortable sea view room, very helpful staff through out the hotel and the food was exellent we have been several times and have never been disapointed.
however I think the re-enstatement of the indoor shauna would make the spa even better.

Room Tip: 2/3/4 floors are quieter in the evening

We stayed here when visiting our friends and their family, who were all staying in this hotel too. After discovering they were on half board and we were not, we were happily accommodated in the dining room at very short notice with no fuss, paying for the 4 course meal. We were also offered a free 4 course meal on the night of our departure after our friends party realized we had paid a lot more than they had for not booking directly with the hotel, which was a lovely touch.
The indoor swimming pool is very small but its nice for kids and also has a jacuzzi and an excellent steam room.
The room was spacious and clean, if dated in decor and furniture, but all the fittings and fixings in the bathroom were either broken or loose, the bed was comfy but too small. The bunk beds also needed the screws tightening as it creaked badly every time our daughter moved.
The walls are quite thin as we could clearly hear other people in their rooms and corridors and also I didnt like the fact that the bathroom of the room above us was directly over our heads when we were in bed! So you could clearly hear people using the facilities and when the toilet was flushed it sounded like the water was going to come through the ceiling! Despite this the hotel was quiet throughout the night..
Also just one other point, when I booked our room using the hotels webpage, somehow it booked us twice. Whilst the hotel were very quick in contacting me to check if i did indeed need two rooms (which I didnt ) they kept the booking fee of £4 for the room that was cancelled. Now I do understand that this was a non refundable booking fee, but feel its a little harsh given I didnt actually book two rooms, that it was their system that booked me in twice. Also whilst £4 isnt a massive amount, if this happens everytime someone books using the webpage then it will mount up ?!

All in all we did have a good stay here, the staff are very helpful and accommodating and work hard to make sure everyone enjoys their stay.
