Guy & Carrie Bretherton says:Hi Doug,
I have received confirmation of our booking & we are looking forward to staying at your hotel. I came across your website by chance and am very glad I did I knew there was something special about it and felt I had to book but you were fully booked on the dates I wanted. I rang my husband &insisted that this was the only hotel I wanted to stay in so we changed our dates. The more I look through your web site ( I only glanced at first ) I knew we had made the right decision especially when you said you could do up rooms for special occasions (my daughters birthday). The more I look the more uncanny things become I spotted a golf section (my husband is a golf pro) so will be well happy he will have someone to talk shop with, anyway did not mean to go on just really pleased I found your hotel & got to book in. Look forward to meeting you,
Guy & Carrie Bretherton

Sue says:Hello,I really did feel that i would like to congratulate you on your web-site.
My husband and myself have just bought a small hotel in north shore blackpool.
We do not move in until November 2002.
If we can create the same warmth and hospitality through our website as you do with yours,then we will be on to a winner.
Congratulations on your 4 star award.
Susan and Ian.

Nicky & John says:Hi Mandy & Doug
Just to let you know that the two nights we spent at the Canasta this weekend were great. Just the same as your web site demonstrated it would be.
The hotel was spotlessly clean with real pleasant and helpful staff. I still haven't recovered from the "mighty breakfast"!!!
Nicky and my self definitely intend to stay with you again next year and will be in touch, all that is left to say is that the whole place is a credit to you and your staff.
Many thanks. See you soon
Nicky & John
Our Reply:Hi Guys

Well done Doug!!!!!

Mary Smeeton says:I think this website is very informative. We have just stayed at a hotel which I booked on the net. The website made the hotel look very nice but in reality it was a very different story. It was very grim indeed,although I wouldn't let this put me off doing it again, I would just be more careful next time. having said this their website wasn't as informative as yours.
Our Reply:Hi Mary
Sorry you had a bad time at another hotel.
Our pictures are up to date - what you see is what you get

Simon & Katy says:Just a quick note to say that we really enjoyed our stay at your homely hotel on Sunday for one night (we were in room 8).
We did not really get to know you due to the weather being so nice and we were out all of the time.
Hope to do so next time though, as we will definately be back to see the illuminations (can you please tell us what dates the illuminations are on?).
ps Still have not eaten anything since the breakfast on Monday morning - brilliant!
Our Reply:Hi guys
:o)
Thanks for the comments
The Illuminations (or "Lights" as we call them) start last Friday in August and shine until first Sunday in November
Thanks for your business and.....book early for the Lights!!!

Mr. Blobby says:I think your golf page is fantastic. The young chap who recently played in the Isle of Man also looks very handsome in the Algarve pictures. He is planning to bring home the Canasta Cup in January!
Our Reply:Aiden!! This must be you!!
The Canasta Cup MUST come back to Blackpool in January....but methinks your handicap may be adjusted to hinder your efforts...and give the rest of us hackers a chance!!!

We arrived home safely. We would like to let you know you made our holiday one to remember with your hospitality. In all the hotels we have stayed in we must recommend yours as one of THE BEST. We have passed some of your cards out to our neighbours who are thinking about a future holiday.
This is Wednesday and once again it is pouring with rain!!!!!!!.
Once again "CONGRATULATIONS" on your 4 diamond status.

amanda and tracey says:we thought your website was excellent, by far the best we have looked at out of all the hotels featured for blackpool on the internet, our only dissapointment is that you don't serve eve meals,but the hotel is beautiful and tastfully furnished and all the best for the future.
Our Reply:Hi
Thanks very much for the feedback
I have to be honest here and say that evening meals take an age to prepare and present - there are some great restaurants within 12 minute walk - Chinese, Italian, Indian, English steaks etc - mmm...I'm getting hungry now.
Also we find mostour guests don't want to be tied to a certain mealtime
Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback
