Bay Liberty's on the Square Hotel
Ranked #26 of 73 Hotels in Blackpool
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 August 2013

I guess nothing lasts forever, and Liberty's on the Square is no exception. We stayed at Liberty's six years ago (2007) and were surprisingly impressed with the quality of the accommodation, food, and particularly the entertainment. So, we booked again (3013) for a three day stay.

Although clean, the Hotel is now showing its creaky age, and is in need of refurbishment. The food is adequate, but of canteen standard, it cannot be classed as 'restaurant' fare, and the service is far too rushed.

For us,the main reason for visiting Liberty's again was the entertainment, which unfortunately has now become a one man show, and can only be described as somewhat 'embarrassing'.

If you're on an organised coach trip, Liberty's may be adequate, but I cannot recommend it for independent travellers.

Room Tip: Sea view supplements are very expensive.

We are sorry you were disappointed with the entertainment (the inmain reason for your posting), there has been no cabaret for over three years now bringing the hotel in line with all other Bay Hotels.

Kind Regards

Just returned from a four day self drive break, excellent accommodation, given room 202, which had been refurbished, (new flat screen TV).
Food was of a good standard, especially the breakfast.
Entertainment was fine, local singers every night, quizzes & occasional bingo (3 nights).
Our waiter Tom, was very attentive without being overbearing, nothing too much trouble.
All staff were a credit to the hotel.

Only minus being that Kaliber alcohol free lager on drinks menu not available on all 4 days, no suitable alternative product available, low cost substitute could easily have been sourced from local supermarkets.

All in all great value for money, would certainly choose Liberty's again.

Played golf at Blackpool Park Golf Club (Stanley Park), an Alister MacKenzie (Augusta National) design, again great value, 2 green fees and Motakaddy only £36, course fairly flat and in first class condition, catering in 19th hole excellent, service from Pro shop also excellent.

Room Tip: Pay for a Sea View, well worth the money.

We had a short weekend break to celebrate a family member and friends birthday. We had a sea view room which was comfortable and clean.the bathroom however needed a little attention there was slight. Mould on the grout along the top of the sink but the plug hole was clean!
The breakfast was good and as we had opted for half board found the evening meal to be adequate. The dining room staff were all friendly and helpfull
The evening entertainment was verging on being embarrassing the resident entertainer? Was not entertaining at all, but as we were going into town this was not a problem to us.
All in all we had a good time and would use this hotel again.

We stayed at this hotel on a Shearing's Our Choice Holiday. I read the previous views for this hotel with mixed feelings, however I am of the opinion that you should always experience something for yourself and remembering the old saying that one mans meat is another man's poison, we went with a totally open mind. Our first impressions of the hotel were that it could do with a lick of paint here and there. We checked in quickly and without any problems. We were allocated room 211 on the second floor. Our room was spotlessly clean, cosy and comfortable. We were well stocked with tea, coffee, milk etc. Our room was bright and airy. The only improvement that could have been made would have been a new mattress on the bed which was a little flat. The staff at this hotel are all extremely friendly and very accommodating and welcoming. They were always smiling. Our meals in the restaurant were varied, were served nice and hot and there was something for everyone's taste. Our waiter, Patrick, was excellent. He was extremely pleasant and made sure that we were well looked after.The entertainment each evening was very good. We enjoyed it all. Michael, the resident host was very good, Bruce McClaren is an excellent singer, and Claire Louise was just brilliant. A very bubbly lady.Throw in a day out up in the Lake District, a trip to Fleetwood for the markets and all in all it was very good value for money. I would definitely go back to this hotel, and if you like Blackpool this hotel will suit you admirably. Thank to all at the Liberty's hotel for making us welcome and looking after us so well

We arrived in time for dinner which was very good, although dining room bit dark. Went up to room to see torn curtains and broken cupboards. Mentioned it to reception who offered immediately another room, which we accepted. On closer examination the floor had not been hoovered as there was paper and a tablet on the floor. Bed very comfortable and clean. Had to keep curtains pulled in bathroom as lower panel of glass was transparent, could be seen on toilet and while getting washed etc. Could not open bathroom window to air room. Had to turn toilet water off as running all night. The hotel is generally in need of updating and maintenance as daylight can be seen when climbing stairs, not reassuring. Also disabled access is not good as stairs to lift and along corridors. Rooms need sound proofing as could hear talking next door and through bathroom floors. Floors very creaky and door locks very flimsy. Would not recommend.

Room Tip: 2nd and 3rd floors need updating and maintaining.

We are sorry you did not enjoy your recent stay with us your comments will be discussed and reviewed by myself and the team. A vast amount of visitors enjoy their value for money holidays and I do believe we are very good at what we do but sometimes we do get unsatisfied customers. We do apologise for any problems you came across and a simple report regarding the toilet etc would have resulted in an immediate repair, the light you can see walking up the stairs is a window?.
Kind Regards

A shabby looking hotel, our room looked as shabby a huge tear in the curtain (was reported) a hole under the carpet between the beds that went down as you walked across, the sink plug was filthy,In the bar top prices for wine, for the cheapest bottle £14.95, the only dryer in the mens loo didn't work, I am told the hotel is due for refurbishing its well over due, on the plus side the food and staff were excellent, I wouldn't stay here again!!

Hi Gareth H, all your comments will be looked into and discussed, I am afraid the bar prices are very reasonable for a hotel if you look around here we are one of the cheapest. We have no fault reported with the gents hand dryer and I have checked and all is ok?, there is also an automatic towel dispenser next to the dryer. Thank you for the excellent comments regarding the staff and the food.
