Paul & Tracey says:Spent a great three days with you and even the broken boiler didn't spoil things as you went out of your way to make sure we had everything we needed. The breakfast was unbeleivable and the evening meal we also had whilst staying with you was excellent.
We will be back!!!
Our Reply:Hi guys...
Broken boiler?
Oh yeah....that was a while ago...the boiler failed on the old side and we had to let you use the rooms on the new side to use the shower
Thanks for your understanding!
Come back soon!

Bob and Carol says:Hi Doug
Just a short note to say thanks for another great weekend,
Bob loved the celebration decorations in the room so much so he thought we had got another persons room and he was so pleased that they were for him.
Just in case you forgot we are coming back this weekend and are bringing the family with us and one of them has to stay in another hotel cos you are fully booked.
Glad its not us as we love the brekkie.
See you Friday

steve and karen says:what planet is douglas on?
We stayed 29 May - 1 June. Found everything 1st class. staff really friendly. rooms comfortable, breakfast excellent. look forward to coming back in the future.
p.s. have you found the "mirror" for room 14!!!
Our Reply:Hahahaha
Just to fill everybody in...Karen told me one morning that she didn't have a mirror...I thought it was strange and asked one of the staff to have a look in the basement for a replacement and if there wasn't one to go to the hardware store and buy one. She thought it odd too...and checked the room - there were three mirrors in there!!
It wasn't until the next day that we realised Karen meant she hadn't got the Daily Mirror she ordered!!! I felt such a twit...and , of course, all the staff are STILL taking the mickey out of me

Carol Heywood says:Hi there
What a fantastic web site.
Not stayed at the hotel yet but getting dates together ready to book. We visit Blackpool about 6 times a year and have been looking for a Hotel like yours.
I have read the guest book and was quite amused at the comments made by Douglas and by what I have seen on your web site I dont think he would be happy staying at Buckingham Palace!!!
Hope you have the availability for our booking.
Bye
Carol Heywood
Our Reply:Hi Carol
:o)
Thanks for the comments - book soon - advance bookings are phenomenal this year!!
Yes....must admit I was tempted not to publish the complaint - I do have the administrative power to deny the listing in the guestbook - but I thought it's constructive and it is, honestly, the first complaint we have had
Bottom line is that he wasn't happy which I am sorry about. Anyway...enough about that...
BOOK EARLY!!!!!

"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. "
