Fabulous 8.6 From 10 reviews

Very good 8.0
great little hotel
Arrived late on a Saturday, got greeted by a lovely woman who gave us our key (we was in room 3). Took some details and off to the room we went, the room was very small, (this did not bother us as we only needed room for sleep) double bed which was so comfortable, draws with tea and coffee on inside the draws was a sewing kit and a hair dryer (cute idea) and a leaflet about the hotel and what to do in an emergency. little round table and chair. Shower cubicle, sink and toilet (all private to that room, as i no some places its shares bathrooms) all nicely decorated, bedding clean (looked like new bedding). We did't use the wifi so i cant comment on that, there was a TV on the wall but we only used this for music when we got ready to go out. The location was quite central. Overall we enjoyed our stay here and if we go to Blackpool again we will definitely book this hotel and advise friends to do so.

Nice hotel good location
The hotel is situated between the South pier and the central pier.... It's a basic room only hotel with ensuite rooms.... the rooms were small but tidy and the bed was comfortable. We were advised to us a church carpark a short walking distance from the hotel this was approx £25 for the week. Everything you need is within walking distance so no need to use the car and it was quite safe where it was.

small room
Room was meant to be double room but it was far too small, I was booked for two night but only made it one night and the room was too hot to sleep, the window was open all night but made no differents I will not stay here again
