“Had a great time at The Doric”
Reviewed 10 January 2010

We have just returned from the Doric Hotel after a great weekend with family and friends. We had a reduced price per person so the value was exceptional. When we arrived we were designated the Doric Suite room which was clean and had recently been redecorated although not a modern look but comfortable and warm. The hotel provided evening meal from a set menu that changed every night. The food was served a little too quickly to be honest, but was good. I think the tables were cleared in time for the eveining entertainment. This included bingo and a singer! Classic Blackpool! The walk into the main town centre takes about 30 - 40mins stroll along the promenade.However the bus route is right outside the hotel on the main road if you don't fancy walking. A cab was around £6!! We were lucky to have great weather so choose to walk. When we got back we took the opportunity to take a dip in thesmallish indoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room before the evening meal. The staff were helpful and polite. We would definately go back same time next year before the season kicks in (too much in full season for me TBH). I'm not sure what the normal prices are for the hotel but we had exceptional value for money. One thing to be aware of is that they are in the process of redecorating the rooms throughout the hotel. We were lucky to have a redecorated room, but some of the other rooms need to be redecorated.

Our stay at the Doric Hotel was enjoyed by all and we went there for my mom and dads 60th wedding anniversary. We went with all the family which included 2 young children and they were catered for brilliantly. The only down side was the heating was too hot but apart from that we had a fantastic stay.

an extremely enjoyable holiday stayed two nights in a very clean and comfortable bedroom not the largest but quite adequate. Nice to see refurbishment program taking place improving standrds. Service at both dinner and breakfast was polite and efficient and both meals good wholesome cooking and very enjoyable. Enjoyed our swim in adequate facilities.

Me and my partner took our 11 month old twins for the weekend and couldn't fault anything other than that the room was TOO hot! Other than that the room was perfect. It has 2 DOUBLE beds, a set of bunk beds and a travel cot. Everything was clean throughout the hotel. The food was faultless. There seemed to be a shortage of highchairs but by the saturday they had bought 4 new ones much to my delight as for 2 of our meals my babies had to sit in their pushchair. The location was ok for us as we enjoy walking and also the best lights start right opposite the hotel. There is a pub at the side of the hotel which is noisy and doesn't quieten down til the early hours however if it wasn't so hot in the room then we would have probably had the window shut and probably wouldn't have heard it. I would go back again to this hotel and would recommend to all.
