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!

Matthew & Angela says:Just a quick thank you for your wonderful hospitality on are short but brilliant stay with yourselves, we thought the food was excellent and there were mountains of it also the flowers and champagne were brilliant.
Angela never expected a thing!
The position of your Hotel is excellent for the trams and the tower also great views, we would have no hesitation of recommending you to any body, hopefully we will be back to see you all in the near future.

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

We had absolutely no complaints and hope to return again sometime next year!!
Thanks again for giving us the base to a lovely holiday.

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

Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, great breakfast(!)....what more can I say!
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
