Glad you enjoyed it
Come back soon
You should have asked for our recommendations regarding restaurants - we always send folk to Mamma's in town centre - delicious Italian food (steak and chicken dishes too) - and GREAT atmosphere - busy restaurant (who wants to go to a quiet restaurant??) but can usually get in without a reservation

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)
Our Reply:Hi guys

Brian was just a bit FANTASTIC wasn't he!!!!!
Please come back soon

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
Our Reply:Hi Rachel and Robert
