Luke Hatchman says:We booked the canasta for the 2011 Pigeon Weekend. Myself and my partner were both blown away by the exceptional standard of the canasta. We received a friendly, warm reception upon arrival. The rooms were clean and up to a standard that far exceeded the very reasonable rate we paid. The breakfast included in the price was exceptional in both quality and quantity. The evenings in the hotel had a great atmosphere and we preferred to stay in the hotel rather than go out, although next time I'll have to pace myself Friday night to make the most of Saturday. We have already booked again for next year, a big thankyou to Mandy and all the staff for a weekend to remember! I will be recommending the Canasta to everyone I know.
Our Reply:Aww....thanks for that Luke!!

carl (fred) & sam says:hi doug just a quckie its a real shame to lose the web cams. we loved to log on and see the web cam of the see out front and the one of the bar area they really were good and will be missed by us. i understand that the cost of these are about 20 quid a month. just stick 10pence on a pint and bring em back there great and help people to see live coverage of the hotel rather than pics that some people think can lie. think about it 10 pence on a drink for live cams LETS VOTE ON IT lol ask the public lol speak soon as cant see ya now lol
Our Reply:LOL
I know...they were great for marketing too...
It's not quite as simple as that....I need them on a separate line as they just use all our bandwidth and I can't do any surfing. It's more red tape and having the time to do it than cost at the moment but I'll have more time to sort this at end of we should be back with all cams working by Xmas
May even look at adding a few more....maybe a sound one outside in case we get a visit from Plod again :)

Gillian Miller says:I would just like to say thank you for all the help the staff gave to me and my family when we were holidaying in Blackpool (Oct 10), it was very much appreciated. I unfortunately took ill on the Tuesaday and the help that I received was fab..............Thank you so much. I would also like to say thank you in particualr to our waitress Nika (Maria) who was exceptionally caring towards myself and my daughter, she is a credit to the Canasta Hotel. I can't fault anything about this hotel, owners and staff alike. I will definately recommend it to my friends and family. And we will be back in the New Year at some point. Once again thank you for a very pleasant and most comfortable stay.
