this hotel excellent in every way possible. the breakfast was brilliant. the hotel was lovely and clean. the rooms were at a very high standard. i would recommed any age group to go. it is also in a perfect location so that is half way between the shops and the pleasure beach.

Booked the hotel online for the pricely sum of £130. On arrival place was being decorated in halloween for the weekend parties and although we were welcomed it left us with the overall impression we were an inconvenience. With a young baby- I'd rung in advance and asked for a travel cot but it wasn't ready (they did help us with this). Advertised dinner at 5pm prompt so after we'd been out we thought it would be more convenient to eat at the hotel but were told that as we were the only one's who'd asked they didn't pay for a chef to feed 4 people. We asked for recommendations of where to go to eat and went to the cafe next door where we were great with equal disdain and told the table we'd sat at (nicely dressed with table cloth and cutlery were for hotel guest only and we could use one of the plastic tables at the front of the cafe if we weren't guests (despite the non-residents welcome sign!). The bar was shut so no option to get a drink or bar snack as also advertised. Breakfast the following morning was a big improvement. The breaskfast staff were much more welcoming, and although the request for a high chair was met, the landlady had to fetch her own as they didn't keep any in the dining area. The landlady was pleasant but the hotel wasn't well equipped or welcoming to a family with young children in october halfterm

we were given a very warm welcome, the hotel owner even moved his own car to accomadate ours, parking is for 4 cars only. rooms were clean, basic ,but all you need for a short stay, the window in the room would not lock, but was not to much of a problem as it was at the back and inpossible to climb in.the service was second to none, just could not do enough for you.unlimited tea and toast at breakfast, with any preferance catered for, can recommend this hotel,excellant value for money, several other hotels give a chioce of cereal or jiuce at breakfast, the chimes has unlimited supply of both to help your self to. also my sister was asked £20 deposit at another hotel for the remote control for the telvision in the room , what a joke !! NOT the case at the chimes. lowreys cafe on lytham road offers a very warm welcome, with superb food, to go with the witty banter, recommend you try one of deans breakfast, well worth it

Went to this hotel for the first time with my partner and a large group of people for a long weekend! I have never laughed so much and been so relaxed. It’s great location - close to the tower, town centre and a small walk from pleasure beach! Rooms are basic, but clean and lovely. Food is fantastic, and there's always more if you want second helpings! Paul and his team are so hospitable and even let us sit in the hotel after checkout for a few hours because we were waiting for the rest of the group! If you want luxury then this hotel isn't for you, but if you want a warm atmosphere, great home cooked food and a lovely stay then you cannot beat the chimes! Such great value for money! Blackpool is good fun, and the town has some great shops but we enjoyed the pleasure beach the most.

The staff were wonderful supplying candles to all rooms and laying on extra ones for the tables the food was wonderful dispite the staff running around in near darkness,on emergency lighting.Due the the POWER CUT there was no background music.
Pity the weekend was spoilt by a POWER CUT
