“Does exactly what it says on the tin”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

We brought our 14month for a night away. All staff we came across were really friendly and helpful. Our sea view room was clean and spacious, but a little dated. Apart from the restaurant most of the hotel is quite dated and would benefit from a make over. The restaurant is spot on, and for a 2 star hotel the food is excellent. The breakfast is one of the best I've had. We would definitely stay here again. Our 14month old especially like the play room.

we stayed here 20/2/14 - 22/2/14 me, my wife, 13yr old and a 2yr old sons, we booked our break through travel republic but prices for the hotel were pretty much the same everywhere we looked, we just wanted a cheap couple of nights away at a hotel with a pool and we had never stayed in lytham so gave it a go,
on arrival to the hotel there were only a couple of parking bays available so can see this being a problem in the peak summer months, checking in was fine reception staff all very friendly and professional, we got our room key (no 49) and went to put the cases in, it is a bit of a maze with winding corridors we were in the annex building, the room was fine could do with updating a bit and you could tell it had not had a proper clean just a going over,

the pool isnt as good as it looks pretty murky like the filters are not on was ok though, changing areas are also pretty grubby lockers mostly dont work, sauna is nice.

entertainment was very good for kids theres a games room, activities throughout the day very reasonably priced pool snack bar, night time was also very good

restaurant was nice looks new, staff again were very good food very nice could do with a few more plates glasses cups etc as there is always something run out

all in all a good break lytham front is very nice for a walk and the pier is also nice to pass an hour, we left the hotel with plans to go back again its priced right and is a very child friendly hotel

We stay here lots of time's in a year with my 4 children , Always the staff are brill especially Pam love her to bits .

But per usual it's the other guest who at checkout this morning moaning about children in the hotel . THIS is a family hotel where children are children for a short time before back to the daily thing of school ect. If you don't like children do not come simple!

It's the school holidays in Yorkshire this week and the hotel have been brilliant.

Thanks again too all for your help and kindness with the kids especially ping the cleaner?, most helpful

See you all again soon Gemma and the kids xx

I stayed at this hotel which is situated on the sea front. My room had fantastic views and a great balcony which would be fantastic in the summer.
On my arrival I dealt with Rita on reception,she couldn't have been more helpful and had a lovely smile every time me and my fiancée saw her.
Really comfortable bed in a spacious room was followed by a lovely breakfast.
If I am ever in the area this is definitely where I will stay.
I stay in hotels every week and believe in giving credit when it is due. Thanks for a lovely stay.

We booked 4 nights away, with our son (4). We stayed in a room in the annex building, which was clean, modern and had everything we needed. The bathroom was clean and had plenty of white fresh towels.
We booked in for both breakfast and dinner - the food was really good and plenty of choice. The evening entertainment was suited for both the children and adults!!
My son didn't attend the day activities as we had plans for during the day.
Excellent family break & we will be returning.

Once again another great weekend at the St Ives hotel. Just gets better each time we go. A firm favourite with us. The food is second to none and well worth going bed, breakfast and evening meal for the extra twenty quid or so. Children's entertainment of an evening is brill, the kids love it and Gary Gimzo the magician on a Sunday morning finishes the weekend off nicely. Already looking forward to our next visit in June.....

Room Tip: Definitely book a room with a sea view.....well worth the extra....
