I stayed here recently the Customer service of all the staff was outstanding, very helpful and friendly. Facilities of the hotel and services were excellent. Cleanness and hygiene of the hotel excellent, couldn’t ask for a cleaner hotel and services.
The food served by the hotel, outstanding and good quality. The restaurant manager James D met every need and requirements needed in the restaurant all his Staff very helpful and polite provided high standard of customer satisfaction.
Entertainment: outstanding could ask for nicer stay at the Doric Hotel.
I will highly recommend the hotel and facilities to all my friends,family. I would stay again at the Doric.

Stayed here for a week last year with my boyfriend and our families.Bit of a shambles at reception because 2 of our party's rooms were available but ours wasnt so wen had to wait around. We were given a sea view room which was clean if a bit dated, same for the bathroom. The rooms have tea and coffee making facilities and a tv, which was a bit ancient. The food at the hotel is wonderful and there is always a good choice for the evening meal. One of the downsides to this hotel is parking, there are limited places to park in the side streets so just be aware of this. Hotel is perfectly located for the tram and bus stop so getting around is no problem. We didnt use the swimming pool during our stay but it looked clean enough.there is a bar in the hotel which is nice to relax in in the evenings. If you want to use the bus and tram, the corner shop just down the road from the doric sells passes that give you unlimited use so these are worth having. Overall a great stay and will definitely return.

Stayed 6th-9th June 2014. Decided to have a weekend in Blackpool and chose the Doric as my base. What a good choice i made.My room was had not been refurbished, but it was comfortable, an adequate size.The room was spotlessly clean, which is a credit to the housekeeping team. In fact all areas of the Doric, were of a similar standard and deserves a higher star rating.All the staff,in reception, dining room, bar area, were highly efficient, friendly and customer focused. Nothing appeared to be to much trouble. The food was of a good standard, as was the evening entertainment. Well done to the Doric staff. I shall certainly spread the gospel and sing the plaudits that you deserve. The 600 mile trip was well worth it. Looking forward to my next visit.

The best hotel in Blackpool! Immaculately clean, food brilliant, lovely cocktails on the new menu, staff friendly and helpful. Clean modern bedrooms. Tram stop right outside which takes you in to blackpool town and attractions. Outdoor pool is great, you dont find many in blackpool and you can order pool side snacks, drinks, cocktails and ice creams. We have rebooked for August school holidays. Cant wait!!
