The room was rather dated, flowery wallpaper, striped carpet and checked bedding! The furniture was a complete mish mash which included a lounge unit and a telephone table! The four poster bed looked very dodgy it seemed...

Okay, admittedly buffet style meals don't appeal to everyone, but if you leave there hungry it's your own fault. The main...

This was our second visit. We stayed back in November 2014 with two children and it was just as good the second time round. We arrived around 8.45pm and was greeted by two members of staff who were very nice. The rooms are basic and need an update to the decor but the rooms are nice, clean and very comfortable....

The room was very clean and had lots of space. All the staff are polite and very helpful. The rooms are cheap. Worth every bit of money we paid. Would 100% stay again and would recommend it to anyone staying in blackpool.

Stayed here for 2 nights, and to be honest the only thing that kept us there was the bottles of Malibu we were drinking, certainly couldn't have stayed here sober !!.
