Would recommend this hotel, Staff was friendly and helpful, Meals was nice, Hotel is clean, The only downside is that bathroom could do with an update and I think the T.V would be better placed on wall at bottom of the bed. Overall we had a great stay thanks.

I came here with Stalybridge Old Band this weekend gone for the North West regional championships. We stayed from Friday to Monday! Really enjoyed my stay! The room was cosy and clean. The shower was absolutely brilliant! The breakfasts were one of the nicest breakfasts I have had in a while and becuase it was a buffet breakfast, you could...

This hotel is family run and is situated behind Blackpool Tower and within easy reach of the front. The staff were very nice and helpful. Breakfast was super - the only thing that was missing was the black pudding and fresh fruit! We felt the evening meal was a bit regimental. 5.30pm was a bit early for us, but we...

excellent hotel, staff could not do anymore for you, the location is excellent, the room was comfortable and very warm. The bed had crisp sheets and we had a good nights sleep. The bar staff was very polite and accommodating, the breakfast was delicious, and everything you could ask for. We have already recommended the hotel to family and friends,
