Absolutely disgusted with the management at this establishment!!! Having booked online for my double room and paid upfront, I was appalled to be woken by what I can only describe as a mad man banging a wooden spoon on a frying pan outside our room, yes that's right you heard correct frying pan and spoon. Then to be ordered down...

Our last response was removed - These people were not guests, they did not pay for the room, they came back in the night with the people who had paid for the room. The people who had paid left early, they were caught left behind in the room and have the audacity to leave a bad review here when they...

Our stay at the northern star was lovely. Carl and Brendan were really welcoming, very knowledgeable about the Blackpool night life and made us feel like we've been friends with them for years. The rooms were clean and I could tell they have been recently re-decorated. The only bad point about the room was that the TV had no satellite...

A first visit to this hotel, great location and fantastic value. From what I understand, the new owners have made some great improvements since taking over this month with more to come in the near future. Rooms are clean and comfortable, breakfast has a great selection of food, including a well portioned full English breakfast, nothing is too much trouble...

Myself and 4 friends stayed at the Northern star for a night out at funny girls. The location was perfect, when we'd finished dancing the night away it was seconds until bed.

Stayed here for one night. I was charged a £5 supplement because I was only staying one night! The hotel was empty! A £5 supplement is not a good idea when it comes to customer satisfaction, service and word of mouth recommendations. The single bed (room 8), is fit for the skip. The breakfast is good; cereal, fruit juice, toast...

You booked by phone, I explained it to you then and asked if you would still like to book - you did. This surcharge enables us to provide low...
