The World Hotel
Ranked #759 of 864 Blackpool B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 June 2015

The staff / family that run the hotel are the friendliest folk you will ever come across. They are well mannered, generous and very welcoming at all times throughout the stay. They all made it a great experience and one that we hope to repeat again soon. The room we stayed in had good facilities and was very modern and fresh, also very clean and regularly maintained throughout our stay (vacuuming, bedding changes etc)
Tea and coffee never runs out as staff always gave us more when required, no hesitations. The helpfulness is definately a 10/10. Top notch all around.
If you want to stay at a 'home away from home', then look no further than this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room, and they will accommodate for this :)

Absolute discrase!! We booket this hotel for 1 night as it look good online and was an amazing price. WE THOUGHT! From start to finish the experience was awful. We arrived and there was no parking on site you had to pay for council parking which was £7.50. The outside of the hotel was rotton; not painted and walls had cracks in. We went in, the carpets were filthy and the stair case smelt like wet dog. The staff used the bar as the living area. The bedrooms we tiny, and again disgusting. The wall paper was hanging off and there was holes in the roof. No happy at all. The beds were rock solid and you could feel the springs. Thin duvets, and freezing cold on a night. The view was the back yard, which again was worse then a pig sty. We went for breakfast which was worse then the rooms. There was ants running across the tables, and a investation of them on the floor underneith the table. I will not be returning and do not recommend to anyone. It is not a b&b, its a big sty. If you want ants in your pants, be my guest, but take note. The place needs shut down. Its an absolute astronamy. Not worth the money at all.

Thank you for your review, even though we feel you have been very critical but that is your opinion, I would just like to add that from your review about the back garden you must of had a back facing room which could of only been either room 5 or 12 both have been recently redecorated so your comment regarding the wallpaper hanging off if somewhat puzzling, you state holes in the ceiling again I dont know where this came from but we will certainly look at it, your also state there were ants at breakfast, although I don't understand why this was not brought to our attention immediately, instead nothing was said until this review, we are all for constructive criticism as we are not perfect and don't claim to be unfortunately we get things wrong from time to time and we rely on guests to give us feedback although a word before leaving would have been helpful before jumping on here to write such a review without giving us the opportunity to at least try and put your issues right, again thank you for your review and we are very sorry we didn't meet your expectations.

Stairs smelt of wet dog. Landlord and family used public bar as living room. Staff/family smoking on doorstep- had to walk around them. Kettle was filthy. On the plus side the beds were very comfy and the hotel was quiet at night. Landlord was helpful and attentive.
