We were a group of 5 girls going on a night out for a birthday and we could not fault this hotel what so ever.
On arriving we were not sure where to park and the owners checked if there was availability out back for us. We managed to get a spot and the owner even offered to park it up for us in case i was abit nervous as it was a tight squeeze.
We were able to book in earlier than stated and as there was five of us we were even offered an extra room at no extra charge as they had a cancellation. I asked when they wanted us to pay and she said whenever, after breakfast if we want which was really nice. They were really laidback about everything. We did not need the room as the large room for 5 had plenty of space for all of us and that's good as 5 girls getting ready to go out could be a nightmare. They even offered us more keys but the two sets they gave were enough.
The room was basic but very clean and that's the main thing. We all had a small and a big towel each at the foot of each bed. The beds were so comfy I didn't want to get up but glad I did because the food was lovely at breakfast.
We were able to place our orders for breakfast early that evening before we went out and they had exactly what you ordered ready for you in the morning with hardly any wait and you was not rushed in the morning at all. We sat chatting for ages afterwards. We brought our bags down with us as we were right at the top of the hotel so we wanted to save our legs and we were able to leave them to one side whilst having breakfast.
Some of the girls wanted to walk along the front to buy prezzies for their kids and I was the driver and a bit unsure what to do with the car as a lot of roadworks were going on. The owner overheard and very kindly told us we could leave our bags where they were and the car at the back for as long as we wished, which we found very helpful and very nice of them.
I've stayed in quite a few hotels in Blackpool and this by far was the best allrounder. We'll definately stay here again. Love it.
