Reviewed 16 April 2012

We have just returned from a weekend at the Elgin Hotel Blackpool for the Grandnational. Can I just say how lovely the staff were on all levels at the hotel. I took a party of 20 we were made to feel very welcome, our room was lovely and spotlessly clean with gorgeous thick white towels which were changed even though we only stopped a couple of nights. The food was great and we were kept informed on how things were going to pan out over the weekend. A member of staff behind the bar even went out of her way to make us a tray of mixed sandwiches on the friday night because we we really hungry but it was quite late and the lady in the kitchen had finished , so thanks to her for that . Little things like this to me set some places apart from others
I will definatley be coming back with another party of friends for next years Grandnational as everyone said how much they had enjoyed themselves, so probably a bigger party for next year Elgin. Thankyou to Nigel and his staff I cant name a member of staff that was apart from the others as they were all lovely and friendly always smiling. Thanks again and see you next year!!.

Room Tip: We had room number 118 which was lovely

Dear Dennis - really sorry to hear that you were disappointed with our entertainment on your recent 60s weekend with us. I realise that everyone has different tastes and that some acts can occasionally have a bad night, but the acts we had on for your weekend were all 'regulars' here at the hotel. I don't know if it was one particluar act that failed to impress but of the 4 acts that were on, Mike Quinn used to sing with 'Freddie and the Dreamers', Sue Forrest spent many years on the Cruises, Jean Pasquill has been requested by many guests for New Year's Eve celebrations and Charliegh has performed for nights I put on at our Local Cricket Club. Trading certainly is not easy but our weekends are proving as popular as ever and quite genuinely we have incresed our spend considerably on entertainment. Our Beatles Tribute (The Upbeat Beatles - here on the 23rd June) are actully costing us twice as much money as we have ever previously spent on entertainment - I believe they are ranked in the top 3 Beatles tribute acts in the country. You will see in our brochure that we have many new acts lined up for this year. We have already had a very successful 'Take That' tribute weekend and have heard great music from the Chunks Rock Band from Oban. We also have a 'Madonna' tribute lined up for August which is set to be a lively weekend.
Many thanks for your kind comments regarding the food and staff - I do hope you will give us the opportunity to give you a weekend that fully meets your expectations on a future occasion. Please feel free to give me a ring to discuss future possibilities - we really do strive to constantly improve our holiday packages and I would be more than pleased to hear any ideas you might have.
Yours Sincerely
Nigel Seddon

We stayed at Elgin with my family and enjoyed it to bits!!

The rooms were fab and clean to the top standards.

Food & restaurant staff, the best you could ever wish for!! Especially Tom, Iain & Ralph (good-looking Polish guy) - they meant business and knew what to do!!

We'll come back for sure!!

Highly recommended.

I recently stayed at the Elgin hotel with a large group (we were on a rugby tour with lots of children under 11 years old). The hotel was absolutely brilliant in accommodating all our needs, extremely flexible and helpful. Also all the staff were just amazing, unflapable, kind and efficient - honestly I rarely experience this in supposedly 5 star hotels around the world.
I think this hotel deserves 5 stars for the whole package and especially for the great staff and very clean rooms.

Many thanks for your generous compliments. It was great having Stratford Rugby Club Juniors and your families here at the hotel. I believe that we have your Under 11 team and their Mums and Dads coming back next year, so we'll be sure to have more tequila in stock just in case you all decide to dress (and drink) as Mexicans again!
Kind Regards to All
