shirley morley says:Just wanted to say thanks to Doug, Mandy and staff for making us feel so welcome when we stayed on Friday. Just wished we could have stayed longer. The karaoke was really entertaining lol. There wasn't many of us, but the atmosphere was better than most full. Was nice making new friends, and hope we can get back to see you all again soon, Steve & Shirley

Chris Davey says:Hi, I have enjoyed watching trams on the webcams, but have had problems connecting in the last few days. I was just wondering if there is a problem with them?This comment doesn't need to be published on the site, feel free to email me.
Our Reply:Hi Chris....I'll answer this here just so everybody knows because I may not get chance to update the webcam page until next week. The webcams are offline. The computer which works them has decided its had enough (not surprising because its been on 24/7 for 5 years now...and probably only a dozen reboots...)
Tramspotters will be pleased to know that we are upgrading the system to include another webcam and MAYBE one that you can rotate will be a week or two yet though.

lawrence lightbown says:Not the best hotel by far However all topped by the managers attitude towards the younger members of this world. All good and well when you arrive but after that we never got a look. Fair enough he had friends there which was dealing with the death in the family. But that give you no right to have an attitude with your manners are awful and calling me a dickhead well was beath taking and i will be seeking advice and taking this matter futher with the help of my solicitor removing myself and a pregant lady at 22.30 says a lot about you and your hotel.
Our Reply:

A Complaint!!!

Mr Lightbown... You were drunk, you were obnoxious and argumentative. My hotel is also my home. I gave you fair warning when you were arguing with me, incessantly, about the cost of your friends room (which we had already agreed about before he booked in) that if you didn't calm down I would be asking you to leave. I have other guests to think about - I'm quite tolerant at taking abuse, to a point, but when it becomes clear that other guests may become your target then I make no apologies at all for ejecting you. It became obvious to me that you were going to cause a disturbance and I asked you to leave. Its that simple. Your partner was not obviously pregnant to maybe a few weeks is all...there certainly wasn't any signs. Oh...pregnancy is a condition...not a desease. If she was OBVIOUSLY pregnant then I would have assisted in finding an alternative accommodation for you. I don't suffer fools gladly. I say it I see it. Next time you check in a hotel ...tone down the arrogance and maybe don't have so much to You are, officially, BAAARRRRED!!
Note to viewers...he's obviously not happy. I ejected him purely because it was clear he was going to cause a disturbance to others and not just me. We do our best to ensure paying guests get a peaceful nights sleep.

Mr Barrington Reid says:We arrived early for our accomodation but was made to feel very welcome until our room was ready. All staff were lovely. Breakfast was lovely, the food was freshly prepared and plenty of it. The room was clean and comfortable, we would certainly stay again.

"Having been to Blackpool on numerous occasions the Canasta Hotel was by far the most homely and welcoming hotel that we have stayed in. The room was always warm and comfortable, which made the whole Blackpool experience more enjoyable. "
