        Helpful staff when bill queried (resolved- a computer blip). Easy and comfortable place to stay away from the noisiest parts of town.

        I personally found the receptionist to be a very caring, friendly and helpful person, as my partner managed to get lost trying to find his way into Blackpool and she was very helpful providing us with the relevant directions we required.

        I found the shower cubicle in the bathroom to be very very small.

        very quiet location, okay for elderly people, rooms nice, were lucky with weather so sat outside to enjoy it.

        unfortunately breakfast was cold every morning, sandwiches in bar were very nice off bar menu, a proper ramp to main door would have been nice, as we had elderly person in party, a bit quiet at night, no entertainment.

        Good location for pleasure beach.quiet aswell,ideal for families for a one or two night stay.

        A little too far from the tower end of blackpool.. Taxis required for getting up and down to that end of town.

        The hotel was clean and good value for money. It is the nicest hotel I have stayed at in Blackpool. It is quiet and well run. Highly recommended. We stayed with our 18 month old son and there was a cot and a high chair available. The breakfast was excellent quality. I would definitely stay here again.

        The lift was very small and old fashioned but always worked. Otherwise there was nothing that we did not like.

        We stayed in a Family room and although small was comfortable This is a perfect location for beach and pleaseure beach at the quieter end of town so no disturbance at night. Literally 5 minute walk from Pleasure Beach entrance. Not a great deal of parking but we managed to get a spot Food was great actually but get down to breakfast earlier as it did run out on the hot buffet. Howard, the entertainment on Saturday evenings is great, Bingo and Hoy are a must :-)

        The Hotel inside is a funny shape and sometimes takes a bit of navigation to find your room. Wouldn't like to try after a few too many scoups. But there are lifts so don't worry about lugging heavy suitcases up stairs.

        We felt as a family that we had made a good choice of hotel as it was near enough the facilities we wanted to use. The entertainment at night was good fun and family friendly. The staff were very friendly and accomadating. Breakfast was enjoyed by us all

        The location was good in that it was at the quieter end of the promenade. There is a bus stop and tramline opposite the hotel. The hotel was modern and clean. The staff were polite and efficient. We had a room with a seaview and it had all we needed and was very clean with up to date furnishings and new bathroom. We were there on 9 July. I think maybe in winter time the room could be a little dark as there was no ceiling light, only lamps. It was rather warm during the night and it was good that we could open a window. The breakfast was fine and well cooked. I think the dining room is perhaps a little small for the size of the hotel and it did get quite busy but it was a weekend and the height of the season. We got back to the hotel late on the Saturday night and you could still buy snacks. We had a pizza and it was very good. We would definitely stay there again. The one problem we had was travelling down the promenade because the trams are not running at the moment but once these are back all will be fine.

        The staff were very welcoming from the startand remained helpful throughout our stay. Bedrooms comfortable and clean. Main function rooms large and airy with great views. The entertainment was suitable for all the family. An idea location to visit both Blackpool and the surrounding area. Easy access, short distance from Blackpool Airport and main line train station also convenient to bus and trams. A very nice surprise in Blackpool and would recommend to friends and family.

        The lift required the cage door to be closed after use or it did not function. Unfortunately some guests failed to comply with hotel instructions which meant the lift was sometimes unavailable at levels required.
