Stayed here many years ago and then again last night. Friendly staff, great breakfast and in a great location. Will definately stay next time I visit Blackpool. The hotel is on the tram and bus route and isn't too far to walk along the prom to the Pleasure beach or Blackpool Tower.

Although this hotel clearly needs updating in large areas of the hotel, it is perfectly adequate for a budget holiday. Seating areas with promenade views, large bar area and games room available along with "computer corner" and free strong wifi signal throughout the hotel. The bedroom wasn't huge but had everything we needed including hair dryer/ tea and coffee /...

On arrival the hotel had a decent car park and check in was very good. The corridors leading to the rooms smelled fusty like an old peoples home. The room itself was average small tv and kettle. The bathroom was ok although there were no shampoos. The breakfast was ok and reasonable. The price for the weekend stay was ok...

It is a bit tired and has clearly seen better days and there is a very old lift that needs explaining before use. However the staff were friendly...

Very good facilities - large games room with snooker and pool tables, dartboard and PlayStations. Bar and lounge areas and computer for guest use. Décor a bit dated - would...

Last minute break so very limited options to stay being a family of 4. After searching and seeing the raving reviews I decided to book The Headlands. The hotel is 10 minutes away from the pleasure beach, we had a large room with a sea view and the beds were comfy, warm and the room was clean. Issues – no...

Stayed for 3 night BBEM. The food was very good and the staff in the dining room were lovely. We had a Seaview room looking out onto the big glitter ball. The only downside for us was it was a bit far out we usually stay closer to the central or north pier. No entertainment so the bar was very...
