Colleen Kneen says:Dear Dougie and Mandy - Thanks for a brilliant week end. The refurbishments are fantastic. And all the little touches you have put have made it your own.The girls at breakfast couldn't do enough to please.The room was lovely especially the suprise of a four poster bed plus wine and balloons.You both made us feel special. We enjoyed it when we came a year ago but since you've bought next door it's fantastic.Can't wait to come back in March - we'll never be away now.
Thank you once again - I would advise anyone to book early as you will find it hard to get a room.
Love Colleen and Phil

Steph Miller says:Firstly can I congratulate you on an excellent web site very informative! I create them myself so I know how hard they are. We are coming to stay with you in the beginning of April for my birthday and I can't wait. Last year we stayed in a hotel at the far south near the Pleasure Beach. We found it a bit too far to walk to the shops and the tower so we had to get the tram every time we went out. This time we picked your hotel it sounds much closer to everything. Looking forward to staying with you!
From Steph & Alex
Our Reply:Hi Steph and Alex
Thanks for your kind comments
Yes...we are much nearer town centre - about a 12 minute walk to the Tower - or 2 minutes on the tram. It will take about 15 minutes by tram to get to the Pleasure Beach. We think we're in the best spot in Blackpool!!! North Shore is much quieter but we're at the town side of North Shore so...all in all a great spot!
Look forward to seeing you later in the year

Ange and Vikki Olson says:This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The friendly family atmosphere and the great accomodation are second to none. If the Canasta is full then my daughter Vikki doesn't want to go to Blackpool the only hotel she'll stay at is there!
