Stayed 2 nights for business but had my partner staying with me, needed to upgrade our room to double room with sea view (£10) for that reason. Reasonably priced in mid range compare to some of the near ones (ie Hilton) with better rooms than the very cheap ones. Hotel was nice and rooms clean and tidy. Bathrooms clean but... More

We stayed overnight and had a double room facing towards to the sea front. Hotel was lovely & clean. Staff were really lovely. It has its own free car park which is a bonus. Great location - about 15 mins walk to the town. Only down side was our room was really tiny - we were on top of each... More

The only reason for giving this hotel a 4 star and not a 5 star was because of the size of the room in comparison to the prize we paid. Expect a little more to the room but still enjoyed it. Breakfast was amazing would stay again if they had bigger rooms for the same price.

Hotel ideally placed on Sea front. Lovely views while eating excellent breakfast or evening meal. Food enjoyable and good quality. Hotel clean with single, double and family rooms but the ones I saw were all small with same size hanging space in each room, open bedside table with shelf. Only one drawer for hairdryer. Very little floor space for sitting... More

This hotel is handy for the town yet just far enough away to get some peace! Free easy onsite parking is also a real plus. We arrived and were greeted by friendly staff who checked us in swiftly.

I stayed overnight to see the illuminations and sights in Blackpool and this hotel was very reasonably priced, in a great location on the sea front, with free onsite parking and breakfast included in the rate. My single room was small but clean and well appointed with en suite shower. The public areas looked clean and contemporary and the carpet... More

The hotel is fabulous. Staff greeted me with a smile and were very helpful. The food in the restaurant was amazing, I had fish and chips and Eton mess. All staff are really friendly and helpful. The room itself was very high standard and comfortable. Had an amazing nights sleep and no disturbances during the night. I'd definitely recommend it... More

Positives : Location, parking and food was nice. Negatives: Atmosphere, check in procedure was strange and our room was small and cold. It is a pity as this hotel could be really nice but the lack of atmosphere spoils it.

Room with sea view was excellent. The service in the lounge and bar was very poor, had to keep looking for staff. Wanted a bar snack but told not available because they were busy in the restaurant at lunch time.
