To call it crap would be unfair, but it looks clean to start the weekend and ends up filthy - which is only down to the clientele and the fact nothing gets cleaned over the weekend.
Beware, the wash / toilet facilities are typical of Blackpool in the 70's / 80's - right down to the old fashioned wash basins in the rooms! they'd go for a fortune as Retro! I counted a total of around 35 people there at one point, and i only found 2 working showers and 3 toilets! It's a rough ride and suited to people who like flared jeans, 3 day working weeks and Watney's Red Barrell!!
If it's for a Stag or Hen night you're ok - and for the older members of your party you can get a night's Kip (the music there is loud, but you can hardly hear it in the rooms).
The breakfast is chaos, though Gill (?) trys very hard and is always helpfull. Don't expect good home cooking - my 80 year old mother has always been a rotten cook, but her breakfast is better!!
Overall, Blackpool tries its best to rip visitors off, is appallingly racist, full of the sort of young men football got rid of 20 years ago and hasnt got a decent pint or food outlet in it!!
The Lark Inn is a rough ride in a rough area of a rough town
Come to Cardiff, you'll think you're in paradise!!
