This is a party hotel for adults only on a weekend. So we knew it wasn't going to be anything flash. (Would never take my children to stay here) Very very basic. I booked 2 x quad rooms and one twin. When we got there ended up with one quad room amd three twins..because other quad room had been closed....

Everytime we go to Blackpool, we stay at the GR8 Hotel. The staff are really friendly and they join in the fun. There is a music room which is being played all day so it gets you in the mood for a party. I must say, there is plenty of hot and cold food and drink to eat at breakfast...

I'd be lying if I said this was a really good hotel and gave it high ratings because it's not. But at the same time its not really meant to be, it's a cheap hotel that's good for budget stays (I'd stayed with a group of about 20 people on a stag do). The service was ok and the rooms...

Was in Blackpool on a friends stag do and only needed a bed for the night. This spot ticked all the boxes. Good location, good price, decent sized rooms and a decent breakfast. Staff seemed friendly enough and the drinks were reasonably priced at the hotel bar. Our group was around 20 strong and all seemed happy with it. I...

An excellent couple of days on a Stag weekend. We were not looking for anything expensive or luxurious, and its certainly not luxurious but it was adequate, cleaner and friendly staff. Breakfast was okay but after a good night on beer, more would have been welcome. Fairly central to town centre and night life, yet far enough away to get...

A last minute budget booking so we weren't expecting much. Friendly staff but our room was very 'tired'. The ceiling was a suspended type usually found in an office and the ceiling tiles were mismatched, grubby and probably hiding all sorts of doom. The bathroom looked to be constructed entirely out of silicon-sealer. The shower flipped from molten lava to...
