Great staff - Tom the manager and Lauren on reception - really friendly and accommodating. The food in this hotel is not your normal Blackpool expected level - really great menu choices...

I was staying in Blackpool to attend the Ice Festival so the hotel being a five minute walk away from the ice rink was brilliant. The location is great for those wanting to visit the Pleasure...
