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.
