We have just recently returned from a week at the Craig y Don. A fantastic time Wes had by all. We were lodged in a family room in the refurbished part of the hotel. The room was spacious and well appointed, with a large bathroom. We couldn't fault either the staff, food or the entertainment. We enjoyed it so much...

Dear guest thank you for your great review and we are pleased you enjoyed your holiday staying in one of our large refurbished family rooms. We created these rooms so families could spread out a bit, we feel the days of cramping families up in small rooms are a thing of the past. We look forward to welcoming you back...

Dear guest thank you for your great comments. We wish the weather could have been a bit better for you but hope it won't stop you visiting Blackpool again and staying with us at the Craig y Don

We have stayed here on a few occasions now, it is the first hotel we check for availability when holidaying in Blackpool. Everything is perfection from the guest rooms, to the the in-house entertainment (we especially loved the Bingo!), even to the 'help yourself' style buffet breakfast. Cannot fault such a fabulous hotel!

Great location. Room comfortable and clean. Excellent breakfast. Decent entertainment every night. One gripe was that WiFi did not work in our room which was at the rear of the hotel even though it was advertised as such. Would return but book direct.
