The Cresta Hotel
Ranked #257 of 863 Blackpool B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 April 2011

Stayed at the Cresta in April 2011 and wow! was I impressed! Room we stayed in was decorated to an extremely high standard, the superb full English breakfast was to die for (kept me going for the best part of the day!) and parking outside was free (there's a large car park only 1 minute from the hotel if you can't park outside). Dave and Sandra, who run the Cresta, must be one of the friendliest hosts ever, as nothing was too much trouble for them. Near to all amenities, including the Pleasure Beach which was only a few minutes walk away (and also the Casino, but take some ID for free membership), but also surprisingly quiet, the Cresta really is a 'hidden gem'. Highly recommended; we'll be back....

Room Tip: Within walking distance to the Pleasure Beach

I can only agree with the other reviewers, this is a little gem of a hotel! The rooms are very clean, modern with quality toiletries and a more than adequate tea/coffee tray, fresh towels were provided. The room I stayed in had very recently been redecorated to a high standard with quality bedding.

The owners were two of the friendliest I have met - as other people have said nothing was too much trouble, we all had an evening meal which was lovely and special requirements were not a bother. They were very informative on the local area, helpful with taxis etc.

The bar area is also recently refurbished with comfortable leather chairs and low tables, it has a pool table, large flat screen tv, fruit machine and a good selection of drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic - including a few house specials which you should try!

Breakfast was excellent quality, freshly prepared by Sandra and Dave. I had a full english with plenty of toast which was as good as they get, although there was various options including a vegetarian option.

The hotel is approx 300 yards from the Pleasure Beach. The Dr Who museum, Sea Life Centre and Tussauds are 1/2 a mile away along the promenade which is a lovely walk on a nice day. The nightlife is a short taxi ride away (approx £6-8) and late keys are provided.

This is a non-smoking and no pets hotel - the owners do have two lovely little friendly dogs though! They cater for families and couples.

Overall I cant fault this hotel and will definately be using it again next time I visit Blackpool!

This is the second time my family and I have stayed at The Cresta Hotel. Both times we have been made to feel very welcome. My daughter especially loves it there.

There is off street parking which is a bonus. The rooms are excellent standard with a tv, on suite and tea/coffee making facilities. It also has a bar and pool table. The breakfast in the morning was also a very high standard, offering cearel, or cooked breakfast or even both.

The Hotel is less than a 5 minute walk from the South Pier and arcades and the Pleasure Beach. There are shops along the way too.

All in all I would strongly recommend a stay at The Cresta Hotel you will be going back year after year.

We stayed from the 23-26 October 2010 and it was brilliant. The service was excellent and so was the breakfast. The rooms were spotlessly clean and well maintained. The bar room was brilliant because they had a pool table and a fruit machine and really comfortable furniture.....The beds were really comfortable aswell...all of it was the best and great value. I have no complaints whatsoever. Dave and Sandra made our stay really good and were so friendly. It was simply the best.

Stayed two nights and we really enjoyed, dave and sandra couldnt of been more friendly and helpfull, the whole family was great. They have two very friendly dogs charlie and nixs who we loved. We had the family room on the top floor , next time we would have two doubles cos two teenage girls take up a lot of room. The food is excellent , couldnt fault it and the hot chocolates .wow. we couldnt get enough of them. The rooms are very warm , which you need in the winter, clean and modern. The street is very quiet so sleeping in the night was no problem and is only 2 mins from the pleasure beach. Would recommend the cresta to anyone and everyone , a fab place to stay. Would we go back, hell yes lol !!!!
