Bob says:A guid new year to yin and a'. I have been reliably informed by my wife Grace that I had a wonderful time at the Canasta. First time we've been away from our house at this time of the year and why oh why have we never done it before. Thanks very much for a memorable party.
Grace and Bob.

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!!

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

Imelda Coyne says:Thank you so much for a very comfortable stay. Your hotel & staff are a credit to you. A special word of thanks to the girl who cleaned the rooms & worked behind the bar - sorry I didn't get her name. She has long blonde hair & her girl was usually close by! I found her extremely friendly & helpful.
Please enjoy the sunsets that I was so lucky to capture (13/10 - 16/10)
I do hope to make a return visit in the not so distant future.
Kind regards,
Imelda Coyne
Our Reply:Hi Imelda
