Just back from a weekend away to Blackpool and stayed in the Rhoslyn Hotel.
It was a last minute booking to take our 5 year and 2 year old to see the lights. The day before I read the reviews and seen a few saying not to book this and don’t understand why ?? I’ve been to Blackpool a few times staying in hotels that cost more and by far this was the best yet , the couple that owned it couldn’t be more helpful and were fantastic, seen a few people talking about the front door getting showed how to use it I think the lady was only showing you the way to open the door without locking other people out with the safety lock the door has. The hotel was spotless everywhere in the hotel nothing out of place and the rooms where the same couldn’t fault anything about them even had a fan in the room incase it was to warm to sleep. The breakfast was just perfect a set English breakfast what did make sense to the owners that they had everything just perfect for you in the morning also there was a choice of cereal at breakfast.
The previous comments should look in the mirror and say to themselves if they want to have the same hotel as the Hilton they should tap themselves and pay top rates for daft complaints about the mushrooms were like rubber and getting showed to open and close the door like a kid the lady was just showing you that if u pull the handle up it lock people out behind you even with a key.
Had a fantastic time in a really clean Hotel with owners that take time out to help and have a chat with you what more do you need for the money you pay for it.
Arrived earlier on today at the rhoslyn hotel, the owner seemed ok at first showed us how to use the door like we are children. And then my partner asked him if he knew of any takeaway local and if we could eat it in the dining room or our room, the owner said no and was really funny. So we went out and when we arrived back he was actually there waiting for us and said "your not happy are you" and told us to leave. Who in the right mind would ask someone to leave when we have a 2 year old with us at 7pm at night!! Very rude and shouldn't even be allowed to run a hotel with his poor customer service skills and his wife hiding from us telling us to speak to her husband. Unwelcoming and I'd avoid it. The room wasn't even cleaned either there was a haribo packet under the bed and the bathroom hadn't seen a duster in years.
Well where do i start with this s**t hole... Me and my partner and kids arrived and at first the owners were great very helpful and chatty they shown us how to open and close the door like children then we put our bags in the room and because it was late we decided to go to the bar for a drink only to be given cans of larger at £2.50 (mask and a striped top comes to mind) anyway the owner bragged about how much money he has and blar blar blar I stopped listening after his first breath. Breakfast was rubbish tinned mushrooms were rank bacon under cooked my partner asked for no beans or tomatoes they said eat it today and tomorrow they'll sort it fair play they did but when I asked I got "tough" I had to suffer. They were rude and moody they ruined our break away. Never changed the bedding never gave us clean towels and near fell out with us cause we asked for more sugar in our room... We tried avoiding them all day cause they put a downer on our family break but they seemed to be waiting for us to quiz us where we been. Do not go to this dump with the ogars. We love blackpool just won't be staying there again..
First arrived I asked about parking. But first thing John the owner was worried about was if we had paid in full. And yes I paid through trip advisor. Then after explaining where car park was. I was told how to open and close front door with out using handle. Very odd. Then I was informed we where in room 2. The room was very small with a very small toilet and shower room. Definitely not worth the money we paid. Towels where provided after using them I put them on floor in shower ready to be replaced with fresh ones the next day. But to my shock the same ones had been put back out. They where still damp !! The breakfast was terrible. John the owner was more interested in the people who lived buy him using disability scooters .We didn’t stay for second day breakfast we left early. I definitely would not recommend this property for your stay in Blackpool.
Stayed at the Roslyn from the 4/5/2018 to 8/5/2018 and can honestly say it was a great weekend at the Roslyn hotel.
John and Linda are two of the nicest people you could wish to meet,nothing was to much trouble for them,ideal hosts.
Our room was room 4 for us was an ideal size to be fair it is ensuite so that’s a plus,the breakfast was excellent no hanging about they have the service down to a T,the hotel is a tram ride from central pier and the tower.
There is free WiFi but at times is a bit temperamental but nothing major,whoever books here won’t be disappointed I’m sure John and Linda will look after you.
John has a great sense of humour very good with his one liners 😂😂😂😂 thank you John and Linda for a great weekend keep up the great work you do I wish you both all the very best for seasons to come xxx
