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

Tim and Julie says:Although we were only with you for two days, we really enjoyed our stay. We were very impressed with your hospitality and quality of the services, and the extra boiled egg with the breakfast was much appreciated !
Julie and the girls are still a bit burnt from the quality weather you laid on for us (I know, all part of the service), but hopefully a few days Crawley rain will ensure a quick recovery!
Many thanks again for a great stay..
Tim, Julie, Kirsty and Rebecca ...

Gillian Sneddon says:My boyfried Mark and myself would like to thank you all for most pleasant stay last weekend,
(Friday 5th July - Monday 8th July),
You made us both feel very welcome.
The room with the sea view was excellent. We would have no hesitations in recommending your hotel to anyone. We loved Blackpool that much that we are thinking about coming back down in October (Friday 25th - Monday 28th)?
Many thanks again.
Hope to see you all soon.

We're working on the Canasta Cloud Clearing Contraption (Patent pending) ....but early trials are not good
By the law of averages we MUST be due some good weather.
