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!

alan webb says:An excellent website. The best I have ever seen for a hotel. Do you take group bookings, I am interested in next years illuminations for between 30 - 40 senior citizens but will need at least 5 singles to include courier & driver.
Our Reply:Hi
Thanks for the comments
Sorry - for the comfort of our regular guests we prefer NOT to take large group bookings
We find they tend to be a bit rowdy and "take over the hotel" making other guests a little uncomfortable.
The largest group we would accept is 4 couples
There are PLENTY of larger hotels that would be glad of your business though
Please see: Blackpool Hotel Guide

Karen, Thomas and Heather Flood says:Thanks for a lovely stay, your hotel was very clean and nicely decorated (not a net curtain in sight). Don't know if you get many Scottish people staying as I don't think Mandy understood a word we said! Not to worry. Heather was fine all the way home, must have been too many rides at the "Treasure Beach" as she called it. Just one point to note, we found our room was very cold in the morning, the radiator didn't appear to be on. Apart from that, had a lovely stay and the breakfasts were great. Thanks.
Our Reply:Hi guys
Thanks for the comments
You should have told us you were cold - we didn't have the central heating on at all - we have free standing radiators you could have used
You should always let us know if theres anything amiss
Hope to see you again
