Bob says:Doug, Please tell Elaine that I played first round of golf after massage today. One member of our group said I hadn't swung like that for at least 10 years. I went round in 9 over par, not bad for an old codger off 17. My grateful thanks and if you were nearer I'm sure you'd have a lot of the geriatric members of Cathkin Braes Golf Club looking for a massage. Regards and best wishes.Bob
Our Reply:Hi Bob
I'll pass this on as soon as I see her
Glad it worked!!
Keep Swingin'

Nigel, Jenny & Ian Best says:Dear Doug & Mandy,
Just a quick e-mail to say thank you very much for a memorable stay at your hotel for the New Year. We brought "Elvis" with us who is a truck driver for MFI but loves to entertain all our family with his impersonation of Elvis. We all think he has hidden his light under a bushell for many years and is not over-confident about his singing ability and it was a joy to see so many people enjoying his performance. My wife also took to the karaoke for the very first time and thoroughly enjoyed it (although since you didn't have any Gary Newman, I wouldn't get up!!). We found every aspect of the hotel more than suitable for our needs and would not hesitate to book again. On the journey home, we were talking about booking a couple of days for the illuminations. Thank you very much to you, Mandy and your staff for making our New Year such an enjoyable and pleasant experience. We look forward to booking with you again in the future.Thank you once again.Nigel, Jenny & Ian Bestand on behalf of Elvis and his wife (Sue & Brian McManaman)

Joanne and Stan says:Arrived back from absolutely brilliant two night stay for New Year at Canasta. Only drawback I think was my terrible singing on Karaoke! Excellent value and extremely friendly and helpful staff (especially Elaine who is an absolute comedienne!!).Will definately come again - see you next year!!
Our Reply:Hi - thanks for taking the time to make the comments....
I think it must be me that was singing so bad as everybody else was soooooo good!!! So...apologies for that - I just can't stop myself when I've had a few Malibus!!
Come back soon!!

rachel and robert attewell says:just reading over all the comments people have made about their stays at the hotel and i couldnt agree more, me and my partner rob stayed at the hotel twice in 2003, the service is impecable, everyone is so nice and treated like a friend, i was offered drinks on arrival and got a free paper in the morning, the breakfast is huge and cooked to perfection.i would recomend this hotel to everyone who is visiting blackpool, the rooms are beautiful and i have never slept in a more comfortable bed in my whole life. i am happy to say that i will be returning to the hotel later in the year after the birth of my baby in feb, see you soon

Richie & Nici says:Just returned from "The Canasta New Year Extravaganza"!
Fantastic time - excellent atmosphere, brilliant value for money, tip top staff. Add all this to the usual Canasta high standards and its obvious why we enjoyed it all so much. Great entertainment, and fantastic karaoke. Met some great people who were strangers, but now friends. The balance of everything was just about perfect. Well Done and Happy New Year.
Our Reply:Hi guys - thanks very much for that
We really enjoyed you on the karaoke - especially Angels (when I eventually found it!), and Runaround Sue was terrific (as were all the ones you did) - and not forgetting "Summer Nights" when you both performed
I'll reply to your email soon - have a great New Year!!
Doug and Mandy

phil & colleen says:Mand & Doug sorry we have not been in touch sooner but the computer has not been well and is still not 100%, anyway thanks very much for the week end on our anniversery and the flowers and wine. Its nice to be treated like friends and not like paying customers like you are in most other hotels. We had one of the best times on our last visit and we really dont feel as if we are intruding when we come to stay and this makes it easier to relax and enjoy ourselfs. just to say that as usual everything was upto, if not, better than normal and we look forword to seeing you both at new year,
best wishes till then colleen & phil
Our Reply:Hi guys
