    Staff were friendly. Good location. Car parking facilities.

    Damp smell from roof leak in foyer & bar area. Could do with a refurb.

    In the end I complained and upgraded costing me £10 and ended up with a lovely sea view room and the illuminations were on.

    I paid £60 for a box room with 2 single beds. I asked for a sea view room in my special requests and they told me there wasnt one available but there ended up one being available.

    Most things until the ignorance and arrogance off staff after departure.. more interested in a clean and a kettle before the well being of a human being

    How rude the staff are after the stay. Although on arrival they was very kind and considerate on departure a member of my family had dealt with a traumatic experience whilst visiting Blackpool and without a call.. I was charged a fee from my card before being notified not only for 1 thing that was not our problem and another which I would of quite happily agreed upon knowing the circumstances but not one bit of compassion or consideration regarding the problem! And still to be ignored I'm regards to the situation!! Rude

    Location, weekend entertainment, friendly staff, bar and lift.

    The hotel is in need of a makeover - eg paint cracking up, tired looking. We found two hair accessories on our bedroom carpet (a kirby grip and ponytail band) which put us off a bit.

    Breakfast was really nice in a comfortable dining room. The staff are very accommodating & friendly.

    A few of the bathroom fittings were loose.
