“Nice Retro Hotel”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

Have just spent 2 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Although it is smoker friendly, the room did not have that smoked in odour. I'm an ex-smoker so notice the give away smells normally. The hotel has a sort of 70's feel to it, but is spotlessly clean The room was very adequate for 2 nights, clean and warm with a modern shower. Breakfast is to die for, served by pleasant and friendly staff, and more to the point, served piping hot and fresh. None of that dried up, luke warm food that is found in lots of hotels/guest houses from hot plates that have been on the go for an hour or so. You can select whatever you want on a sheet given to you on day of arrival. Tick what, and how many items you want and then keep that daily or change it as you want. The choices are good too. There is also a cereal/fruit bar to start off with. Toast and orange juice is provided and replenished if required. The bar is very pleasant and there is a pool table in the front room. One thing though, shorter cues are required due to limited space!! All in all, though, this is an ideal place to spend a few nights and will certainly return.

Just got back from a Saturday night stay with friends. We were looking for accommodation and knew this area was good and saw vacancies available so called in. It was the best decision we've ever made, we were shown the rooms which were clean and well decorated and £24pp our friends were glad as they were allowed to smoke in the rooms and as non smokers we couldn't tell they were smoking rooms. We were given a list to fill out for breakfast which is good as not everyone has the same taste so we could pick what we wanted. Even though it's in a quiet area the tram stop is 2 min walk and for £4.50 you can ride all day up to 1.15am so after a busy day it's nice to come back to somewhere quiet.
We will deffinatly be coming back
Thanks Sandra for making our stay great

Room Tip: Lower floors if you don't like a lot of stairs

Stayed here for just one night for my cousin's birthday. We were supposed to be staying at The Roker hotel around the corner but due to a double booking we were moved here which we were very relieved about after seeing the state of The Roker which looked very run down. The decor of The Scala is lovely and more modern than most traditional b&bs. Sandra was very welcoming and we found our rooms and en suites beautifully kept and lovely and clean. Despite smoking being allowed through the hotel as a non smoker I did not notice any strong smell of tobacco which you might expect to hit you as you entered the room in fact it smelt very fresh. The breakfast was also very nice and we were given a choice card when we arrived so we were able to choose exactly what we wanted. The only let down for me was the location of the hotel as we would have preferred to be more in the heart of things where as this hotel is in the quieter end of Blackpool however I can imagine this would suit many other guests.

Stayed here for 3 nights really enjoyed it. Was like a home from home. Rooms are well equipped and beds are extremely comfy and clean. Location was great near pleasure beach and sandcastle. Not any noise at night from people passing which is a big plus. The breakfast was great and service was good there was also alot on offer. Enjoyed the friendliness of Sandra and the staff. Will be visiting the hotel again in the near future again.

I agree with all of the other reviews - Sandra was a gem and the staff couldn't have done enough for us. The room was clean and comfortable and the food was beautiful. The location was perfect for people travelling by train and for access to the Pleasure Beach.
My only complaint was that as a non-smoker, the smell of smoke throughout the hotel was off-putting. Having said that, at the end of the day the hotel caters for smokers so I shouldn't really have been surprised by that.

Stayed 2 nights for a pleasure beach wow weekend. The owners Sandra and Arthur were very friendly as were their staff. The breakfast was fantastic with plenty of choice. The room was large, clean and warm. The cost was very reasonable but the biggest bonus was being able to smoke in the room instead of dithering outside feeling like a pariah dog. Would recommend The Scala Hotel to everyone and especially smokers who want to light up in comfort. We will definately return.

Another return visit to this wonderful hotel. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable, ideally placed for the pleasure beach, free parking, fantastic food and plenty of it. Sandra and Arthur are very friendly and always go the extra mile, we will always return here when in Blackpool. Thank you for a lovely stay again.
