We booked this b&b last minute as we had to be in the area for work for the weekend.
Having called we were told it was dog friendly & we could have two rooms for myself, my partner & father in law with a shared bathroom.
Upon arrival there was no parking. The hotel sign was falling off too.
We were shown to our rooms( owner Christine wouldnt leave for about 15 mins very awkard) to find it wasnt two rooms but one with a separate wall. No privacy for anyone at all. Rooms are dated & smelled of dampness. We had to then pay £25 on top of £120 ( which was demanded at arrival) for our two night stay to get a second room even though the place was empty. Showers are terrible with no water pressure & the tvs are tiny portables from the 90s. The rooms were in need of upgrade as was the whole place. There was also banging from construction going on next door.
Breakfast was at 8.30am and we were told Christine she wouldnt do breakfast past 9am. This is far too early for most especially if you want a lie in at the weekend. At around 12pm we left our dog in the room to go for lunch we were back around 2pm to find Christine had called to say dog was barking a little & she persisted on going to the room to aggrivate him more. So I now felt we couldnt leave him at all. Not very dog friendly. As for the bar in the Cavendish we asked for drinks at 10.30pm and were met with looks & sighs!
To make matters worse we were hounded to be out our damp smelling rooms at 10am on a Sunday.
The owners were both very odd & the hotel is in a terrible street. Geniunely my worst stay in Blackpool & Ive been a few times over the years. My partner & father in law were also disgusted by the service we received. As were two other guests we spoke too.
I would avoid this hotel if you are planning a stay in Blackpool!
