The website is exactly like the hotel itself! We were both mega chuffed and we are now trying to book again for a couple of weeks time!
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.

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
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 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!!!

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

Sam Lingwood says:Just to say thanks for a great weekend.
Staff are just as friendly as it says on yourwebsite.
The breakfasts are very tasty and huge and set us up for the day.
We appreciated being able to bring a takeaway back and to eat it in your restaurant.
We will definitely recommend you.

As we have decided NOT to provide an evening meal we really don't mind folk ordering pizzas and stuff and eating it in the dining room - keeps the guests happy....keeps us happy
Thanks very much for the comments - come again real soon
