The World Hotel
Ranked #759 of 864 Blackpool B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 February 2016

Friendly owners but the place needs a revamp/shutting down, family run hotel, you can tell that by the kids running round the bar, using the bar area as there sitting room, reminded me of "The royal family", not funny though
Will not stay here again, very poor value at £55 night, room only

Room Tip: Don't bother with a room, sleep on the beech if it's warm enough

Reviews I had read about this hotel were good so we were very disappointed with what we experienced. The gentleman that dealt with us was friendly enough but to be honest the place is a mess, inside and out. Carpets were dirty in the hall and in our room. There was a dog and cat wandering about everywhere which to me would put most guests off! The room was not very clean, the wallpaper was coming off, hairs on the beds, (pet hairs I believe) TV did not work at all also. We were back in early as our son was not feeling well, unfortunately the .. BAR... That they have had next to nothing in it so we could not even enjoy a couple of drinks! Really poor experience .
