After looking for a nice hotel, preferably on the north side of Blackpool, for a week's Illuminations break, we came across The Moorings Hotel at Gynn Square and after looking at the excellent reviews on Tripadviser, we booked rooms 1 & 7 direct with the hotel for 19-26th September. We were met by Phil, the proprietor, a really nice guy... More

A very warm welcome from the host... but what a disappointing room we had (number 8)... very out dated décor & furnishings... also the bathroom suite... Advacado green ? seriously? A very small shower too... quite claustrophobic, such a shame as with a bit of modernising could be a great place... food was good. Ample servimgs

Easy parking outside, The room and bathroom were clean and comfy, with loads of places to put/hang things, a huge window, and plenty of handy lights and mirrors. Breakfast was copious with a nice big cafetiere of coffee, and the... More

Once again we've had a fantastic weekend at the moorings. I think its about our 14th year now of staying there ,we would never think of going anywhere else. Lovely and clean, amazing food just like home from home. I'm sure we'll manage another couple of weekends this year. Please just try it.
