I can only agree with the other reviews, this hotel is not so great. As advertised, I expected a full English breakfast. However, I was served nothing and was expected to pay money in a local cafe for my breakfast, I believe this is unacceptable as I paid for what I was advertised. My room was another matter, Their was...

Reading the recent reviews from last year, it looks as if this Party Hotel was good value if you were on a budget. Stayed three nights recently with no hot water for two of them, a toilet that didn't flush, a filthy Kettle in the room with no Cups or Tea or Coffee ??? non existent morning breakfast and the...

Me and some mates came down for the weekend and stayed here as we stayed last year and had a great time! The place is now completely different. They wanted to please us but couldn't offer resolutions for any of the problems. It's ok offering excuses for why things aren't working but it doesn't make the issues go away. Our...

Filthy hotel. Looks like a hostel. Booked through awesome weekends and for the price we paid we expected a lot more. We didn't get breakfast in the hotel. No working shower in the room. Tv wasn't working. Good location but that's the only positive about this hotel. It is in need of a complete make over.

Stayed here on a last minute trip to Blackpool with a couple of friends and booked through booking.com. Booked to reserve parking via the website but when we arrived, we were told that the spaces were all full and that we would have to find somewhere to park that would either cost a fair bit or be a fair walk...

3 of us stayed here for one night in May. Ideal location to Blackpool night life and Blackpool itself. Car park just opposite which is good, rooms were basic but your only there to sleep for the night. Lovely breakfast on a morning which was included in the price. I would stay here again. All staff lovely and friendly
