“Great 1 night”
Reviewed 14 November 2013 via mobile

Wow.. This hotel is perfect for everything .

Check in
When we arrived the hotel looked pretty full but there was enough parking and plenty on the road if you couldn't find a space. The check in was clear and simple, we were asked if you wanted papers, wake up ect..
From the outset you could tell this was going to be a good hotel just by the initial service.

Rooms
We travelled as a group of 18-22 year olds just to go see the lights in Blackpool. The rooms were lovely. We stayed in a massive triple room with a lovely bathroom. It was all very clean and comfy. I would say that the wall paper could do with being done in room 126 as I did see a bit stuck on with tape but didn't affect us .. And for £50 definitely didn't need to complain, especially with the state of some of the hotels in Blackpool.
The other 2 rooms were the basic doubles. They were also very nice, modern, comfy with good en suites. They were small but not much different that a premier inn. The only real issue we had was that we were spread throughout the hotel. It would have been nice if we're were together.

Leisure facilities
We were offered lots of different activities including gym, swimming snooker ect. After we got back from the lights we went to the bar, quite pricey but was ok.. The snooker room is good. A full size table and definitely helped us to enjoy the rest of our evening. Gym looked brand new and I'm sure if you are there a good period of time would be useful.

Breakfast
As already mentioned the hotel was very busy and when we went down for breakfast it seemed like the whole of Blackpool was there. This was a bit annoying .. The dining room looked lovely and the food smelt delicious .. So we were a bit gutted that we didn't eat there.

Overall
This is a great hotel. You definitely would not be disappointed if you booked here. I would and so would all my friends/family come back in a heart beat :)
If the hotel reads this then thank you for such a wonderful stay .. Your service was brilliant. There are a couple of recommendations I would suggest .. If you would like to hear them I would be more than happy to receive a message .

I have just returned from a wonderfully relaxing "four nights for the price of three" short break at the Glendower. I had asked for a prestige room and, although being a solo guest, I was given room 106, a spacious, bay-windowed, first floor room with a view across the dunes out to sea, well furnished, including a comfortable, enormous bed, flat screen, multi-channel TV (including teletext and subtitles [a real bonus for someone who is deaf], modern bath/shower, bath robe/slippers, tea/coffee making facilities, bottled water, morning paper.........everything anyone could possibly need. The breakfast menu was incredible: cereals, muesli, fresh/dried fruits, best quality cold meats and cheeses, yogurts, a selection of breads, cakes and pastries, including the best croissants I have had for years (including on numerous visits to France!); there was also a choice of cooked breakfasts including the traditional English, smoked haddock, eggs benedict, to name just a few. Dinner was equally tempting with a good choice of beautifully cooked and served dishes for each of the three courses on offer. Throughout the hotel every single member of staff was welcoming, cheerful and helpful. I hope to return for more of this splendid hospitality.

Room Tip: I only saw the room I had (106). I paid very little more for a "prestige" room but even s...

Good Morning,
What a wonderful review, thank you so much for all your positive feedback. I am sorry it has taken a couple of weeks to reply, we have been decking the halls and making everywhere a winter winter wonderland ready for Christmas and the party season.
On behalf of the entire team here at the hotel we wish you a very "Merry Christmas" and we hope you will return to visit in the new year.
Best Regards
Victoria

Comfortable clean rooms and lovely breakfast. The hotel has a great bar and communal area, and we really enjoyed the snooker room. Next time we are bringing our gym stuff as the new gym looks great!!!

Good Morning,
Great news that you found the hotel to be lovely during your stay with us. I can confirm that the new gym has been a great addition to the hotel, the personal training zone is a must if you fancy not being able to walk for three days lol !!
We very much look forward to seeing you in the hotel sometime in the not too distant future.
Best Regards

What a great hotel and find. Was looking for a hotel to stay over with my wife and two boys to save driving home after seeing the lights. This hotel is perfect, away from the bustle and noise of Blackpool yet only 10 mins away. Family room was fantastic, breakfast was lovely and hotel was clean. My 5 yr old was gutted to go home and declared that we will have to come back and stay longer. I agree with him and we will be back to stay longer.

We have stayed here many times - Its always a pleasure.

Now my children are a little older its nice to stay somewhere without hoardes of children running around! Like most of the seafront hotels in St Annes.

Shame there's no pool though

My wife and I with our 12 yr old daughter stayed at the Glendower for one night on 27th October, check in was fine and staff were friendly. We were allocated room 102 and wow, this room has a sea view and was very big, the decor was a little dated however very clean. The room had a double and single bed which was great for our daughter. The beds were extremely comfortable and we had a perfect night sleep. The breakfast was well presented and plentiful, I opted for the salmon which was gorgeous. One little disappointment was when we entered the dining room for breakfast we were shown to our table, however we still waiting for a further 15 minutes before I had to ask a member of staff for the breakfast procedure, after which our order was duly taken. Overall this is an great hotel and in a great location, I would definately recommend this hotel and will definately be returning again. Well done to the management and staff.

Room Tip: Room 102 is great :-)

Good Morning,
Thank you so much for the lovely review, it is great to hear that you had a perfect nights sleep. I have a word with the restaurant team to reiterate the importance of explaining the breakfast procedure to guests which have never visited before so hopefully that situation shouldn't arise again.
We are just about to start refurbishment of the restaurant so we would be delighted for you to visit us again to see the improvement's we have made.
Best regards

We were attending a 65th in St Annes and needed a base for the night.
Check in was good, and room comfortable and clean.
Slightly disappointed when we heard someone else checking in being offered a morning call and newspaper when we were not but not really an issue.
Breakfast was ample with choice of cereals, juices and fruit followed by fairly good choice of breakfast ranging from full english to smoked salmon on toast.

Good afternoon,

Thank you for your review of the hotel I am glad you found us to be comfortable for your short stay with us and that you enjoyed your breakfast experience here at the hotel.
On check in the form you fill in asks whether you require a wake up call or newspaper maybe the guests next to you hadn't filled it in and the receptionist was double checking that they had noticed it....just a thought !
I do hope you will come and stay with us again sometime maybe for a 70 th !

Many thanks
Victoria
