Francesca says:I would just like to say that this is truly the best hotel website I have ever visited (and I've visited many!!). Very detailed, well constructed and easy to navigate around. I hope you have availability for our requested date because I've seen the rest and now want to stay at what looks like one of the best hotels in Blackpool.
Our Reply:Hi Francesca
Thanks for the comments - we'll await your email regarding availability

Vic Isaacs and family says:Hi Doug and All,
Just a note to thank you for an excellent stay over the past 5 days, I, Brenda and the girls had a super time, and will certainly book again with you soon.
Breakfasts were excellent, I was slim before I arrived, now look at me?
Just one gripe (sorry), the scrambled eggs were the worse I have ever experienced, I had them first morning and not again even though I am very partial to that. They were soft, damp and powdered.
Only a little point from an otherwise excellent stay.
Vic, Brenda, Richard and Rachael.
Our Reply:Hi Vic
Our first complaint!!!
I said I'd publish all posts if they were constructive!!
Glad you had a good stay, Vic, the pleasure was ours
Really sorry about the scrambled eggs - don't really know what happened there - the chef was on his hols and eggs arn't Mandy's strongest point.
Mandy says next time you visit she'll serve you the best scrambled eggs you ever had!!
Come again soon y'all - especially the karaoke queens!!
Doug & Mandy

Thanks.See you again!

Karen Flood says:We made a booking today to come and stay with you on 2-5 October, from the look of your website we just can't wait to come!
Been to Blackpool on many occasions as a single girl but this is the first time on a family holiday.
Love the sense of humour that comes across on the website.
Only one request - do you know Mary Poppins and would she pop us down there so we don't have to travel for 4 hours in the car all the way from Paisley in Scotland!
Our little girl Heather is so excited about coming.
Looking forward to meeting you guys.
Karen, Thomas and Heather Flood

Nicola Kind says:Thankyou for accommadating my brother at short notice, we managed fine in the lovely room. One thing though, the bathroom door did not shut and had no lock which meant that one of us had to stand behind the door to keep it closed. Other than that the stay was lovely and we enjoyed going to the switching on of the lights. Thankyou very much.
Our Reply:Hi Nicola
Thanks for bringing it to our attention - we'll get it fixed asap
Come again soon

Mark Owens says:Hi Doug and Mandy,
Me and my girlfriend Marisa cant wait untill Tuesday when we come and stop at your hotel. Things were looking bad at one point, we were both ill but being a Geordie I've fought off the nasty bug. Already got my all day passes for the pleasure beach, any idea how long it takes to walk down there from your hotel??
Our Reply:Hi Mark
Glad you're better....
It's a LONG walk - you're better off catching the tram which stops right outside - every ten minutes this time of year and will get you there in about ten minutes - it's a nice stroll back though of about 2 miles
See you soon
Doug and Mandy

Brian Johnson says:The site is excellent, but your hotel policies are poor, no single sex groups, you should consider changing that one, I feel that is unfair to gay people and mates looking for a good hotel to stay in
Our Reply:Hi Brian to disagree on that one
I would agree that not all single sex groups should be tarred with the same brush BUT I would prefer not to take the chance and for the comfort of our regular guests who book in the knowledge that they are going to get a great nights kip (and not get woken up by doors being kicked in and fire extinguishers going off) we prefer to keep it as it is. There are LOADS of hotels in Blackpool who cater for that market
We are not anti-gay - gay couples are MOST welcome - we've had many gay guests so far - but the policy of single sex groups of 4 or more stays
