Myself, my husband and our two children have just returned after a fantastic week at the Doric. The hotel was excellent our room was spacious and clean. Both pools were great as was the spa and games room. The staff were brilliant nothing to much trouble and both Liam and Dawn who served us our breakfast and dinner were excellent. The entertainment was good and we enjoyed the bingo (especially when George did the calling). Myself and my daughter loved the cocktails !!!! Would defiantly return to this hotel and recommend it to others.

Room Tip: We had room 116 with side sea view booked for family of four but could sleep six.

Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Doric, full board. Cannot fault the hotel themselves on anything. The staff are really great and nothing is too much trouble to make sure your needs are met. The food is really good and the different dinner menus are not only varied but the quality of the meals is fantastic, special mention for the lovely starters and generous desserts! The efficiency of the restaurant staff is also worth commending. We rarely waited more than a few minutes before one of the hardworking staff checked if we were ready for the next course. It's obvious that a lot of hard work has gone into getting the breakfast & dinner routines into order and it shows. So well done to all those servers running about. It made our stay a pleasure. Special mention to the front of house guy! Always remembered to say good morning with a smile or a joke to every family and made sure any special food requirements were sorted. Room was fine. Clean, tidy & everything worked. Hotel supplied us with a fan on request as we always seem to feel too warm in hotels. They popped it up 5 mins after phoning. Our only real issue was noise from other guests who seemed to be running up and down corridors or jumping up & down in their rooms until well past midnight. No fault of the hotel but the floors do seem to exaggerate this kind of noise. Location of hotel was great for us. Trams and buses run in both directions right in front of the hotel and I reccomend a trip to Fleetwood if you want a break from the chaos of Blackpool for a day. Our only problem otherwise was how overcrowded the new trams can become at times. All in all, a great hotel and I fully reccomemd it to anyone.

Our stay at this hotel for the weekend on 1st August 2014 was fantastic. Staff were lovely very welcoming, polite and helpful. We stayed in Family suite 1 and were very impressed, spacious, clean and a lot more than we were expecting. Separate curtained section for the children with on suite and television. Jacuzzi and bidet in main bathroom and view of the outdoor pool.
Couldn't have asked for better food, 5 course evening meals were superb.
Would definitely return to this hotel if visiting blackpool again.

I booked to family sea view rooms . Staff on reception were very nice . Rooms not so great for bb for 2 rooms £332 no
Value for money bathrooms very old dated and in my option never have rubber bath mats . Parking bad and on plus pool inside and out. Door was left unlocked by cleaner and ajar thankfully nothing stolen. If your booking for the pool and outside pool great but if it's for the rooms I wouldn't bother.
