We thought that we would write to you to say "Thank you" for your hospitality and your friendliness when we stayed with you recently. Over the past few months the media and the press have shown Blackpool Hotels to be dirty and run down. I must admit we were worried about visisting your hotel as we booked it over the internet so we did not have any idea what the accommodation was like. It was the website that attracted us so we hoped that the site portrayed the Hotel correctly. When we arrived, your staff was there with a pot of tea and a soft drink for our daughter. This was welcomed after such a long journey. from this moment on the service and the friendliness of the staff went from good to superb. The hotel decor is very nice and exceptionaly clean. I can honestly say your hotel exceeded our expectations. Thank you to you all. You made our few days away very enjoyable and I will recommend you to our friends and family".
