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

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!!!!!

douglas says:We stayed at the Canasta over bank holiday weekend. I'm afraid I was unimpressed.
The room was very small and far too hot. I think that parking was inadequate for so many rooms, and if you think you'll find somewhere to park in the local streets, forget it!
Breakfast was good, the staff were helpful, if not particularly friendly. I think for the room we had 70 quid was excessive.
Bet this doesn't get published, though!
Our Reply:Hi
I'm really sorry you didn't enjoy your stay .
YES....I will publish this - it's constructive.
Room 25 - I'm sorry you found it small - I think room 25 is a standard size. In the room folders we explain how you can turn off the central heating for your room.
Car Park
If everybody arrives in a car then we won't have enough space.
Blackpool was designed in the days of the steam train and car parking is a problem for ALL hotels. We actually have an excellent ratio of car park spaces to beds - some of our neighbours have 40 rooms and only 4 spaces!! Our 18 spaces is "usually" enough. However I understand that you thought I said we had "copious" amounts of car parking - not so - I explain to everybody that we have 18 spaces. You were obviously upset that you couldn't park which is why I gave you £10 discount.
This is our first real complaint in the guestbook out of 149 entries - I'm publishing it because it's constructive.
I am, genuinely, sorry that you didn't enjoy your visit with us.
