So close to all the main attractions we will definitely be going back, see... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
When we were trying to book up for our family holiday each year, wherever we wanted to stay, it was so difficult, to get a Hotel to take two adults, at least 3 children, one of whom had food intolerances and our 3 family dogs, or if there was some Hotel available, we needed a second mortgage to pay for the privilege and so invariably we ended staying in a caravan. Nothing wrong with that but when you have to cater for the family all year round, it is so nice to be waited on and have everything done for you during your holiday. Our policy as far as our Hotel is concerned is to overcome all of those problems, to operate virtually a 4 star Hotel, be spotlessly clean, cater for food intolerances and pets and all at a price that everybody can afford. Blackpool is a wonderful location for a short break or for your annual holiday, either with the family, as a couple or to enjoy between business meetings. The Canberra Hotel is in a great position, close to the seafront and all the attractions, such as the Pleasure Beach, Blackpool Tower and the Golden Mile. We are a family operated, fully licensed Hotel and have a lovely, relaxing bar area where you can enjoy a few drinks after a busy day of sight-seeing and enjoying yourselves. We offer bed and breakfast with optional evening meal and a Dining Room, serving up a wide variety of tasty options, and catering for food intolerances / preferences. ... more   less

“Choose another hotel if you want a good room”

“It's like home from home”
 of 5 bubbles O4129LTsueh, 29 Sep 2014 | Read review
“Some rooms are larger and more spacious than others. If you want a more spacious room opt foor room 1, 4 or 5. Room 5 is a beautiful twin room, spacious and super clean with wooden floors. Room 4 is a large family room and is perfect if you want a lot of space or if you're a family. Room 4 is also a slightly cooler room which is lovely if you like to sleep in a cooler temperature, perfect in summer time. Room 5 has windows to the street so if you're a very light sleeper I'd recommend the rooms that face to the garden - the owners know exactly which rooms face to the garden.”
