The bar staff were really nice The matress was a disgrace you could feel the springs through also we were wakened with banging at 7.45 from workmen in another room
at the arival to the hotel the hotel had a different rate then it was originaly stated in my booking after sorting it out with hotel manager the rate was corrected but was at great inconvenience.
Proximity to transport facilities
we order a breakfast in room, and it wasnt nice at all, i had a upset stomach after eating it...
The hotel was very clean, the choice of food was good The hotel could do with 2 more lifts, there were a lot of disabled guests staying and the lifts are only large enough for 1 chair, creating a long wait for the others travelling in that party.
It ticked all the boxes Paying to park, the room rates are high enough to cover this
It was nice and homely.
Location was brilliant. Staff were generally very friendly and helpful. Be prepared to queue for breakfast in the morning.
Would have liked sky tv in the room.
Leaving Value for money
staff most helpful and we were fortunate to have an upgrade of room as a result of our membership . We were at Blackpool for a show, unfortunately Restaurant did not open until 1900hrs too late for us however this is not a complaint under normal circumstances we would not eat so early.
Fantastic Staff - brilliant location Only 1 radiator worked in the suite - cold at times. Only 1 window capable of opening - rest were screwed shut!!!
the hotel was very nice and the staff were very freindly and helpful,there prices were reasonable, but for families it could run out a bit expensive. as for my wife and i it was okay and we would definatlet go back
A lovely hotel, we had a really nice stay.
everything the weather
the package i booked was fab value for money and we were upgraded to a suite at no extra charge
nothing the food was late and cold
The hotel is very stuffy and mostly for eldery people. the lounge and the bar where very quiet and did not have a relaxed atmosphere
Location. Oasis. Breakfast queues.
Check iN was efficient One of the two rooms I booked was in an abysmal position. Having to pay for two nights when I only wanted one was also annoying. Breakfast was way too expensive as was the bar prices
Been staying at your hotel for the past five years in november and we have always had a pleasent stay,nice and relaxing atmosphere friendly staff and good food..
Quite well located for Blackburn and centre. Building very tired and many items broken or not working. Had to upgrade room to en-suite to avoid broken sink. Waited over 20 minutes for breakfast from due start time of 7am and no-one appeared - prebooked and paid for, but had to leave for an appointment. Would not stay recommend this place, as others nearby appeared better in all respects, albeit Hill View is cleverly marketed on the internet.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Comfortable bed, nice view from window. TV had DVD facilities, which was a bonus. Midday check-out time allowed for a much-needed lie-in!
Cheap and cheerful and breakfast in the price as a bargain. Staff were friendly enough. Rooms were good, breakfast was good. For the price you know you're not going to get The Ritz but it was perfect for my needs. Well the breakfast room opened 3 minutes late (!) but that is a very minor quible.
Really polite, helpful. Breakfast was served promptly and was ok. Nice large comfy bed. Property requires a small amount of attention, I.e shower room could do with a bit of titivating, and my room was next to the night staffs, which meant I was woken by the front door bell which was amplified in the staff room to alert them of clients at the front door. But that aside an absolute bargin of a hotel.
The hotel is placed close to the centre. On my arrival - the room i paid for was not available, so the manager put me into another room and told me to pack my stuff next morning, so they can move my stuff. In my new room - there was no internet available, even it states on the website, that there is internet available. Yes, i needed to go downstairs in the kitchen so i could use the internet.
Clean and tidy Both shared facilities had showers of inadequate operation.one you had to hold in the start button laving only one hand free and the other the shower head would stay aloft due to broken fixture
Very little Room had a strong smell of urine in it
could not wait to leave it.
A basic price, you get what you pay for Poor decour, poor facilities
The staff were very helpfull and friendly. Our Children felt at home. They wanted to come back next time for longer period.
The Corona was a very pleasant surprise just off the main promenade in Blackpool. Friendly team, very welcoming and a clean, fresh, warm environment for couples, singles or families alike. Big thumbs up! :-)
The guys who run it were very helpful and friendly; they had great advice about places to eat.
Cleanliness and friendliness just to be picky - the size of the rooms
The room was clean and staff were friendly Our room was very small so much so tea making facilities were left in the wardrobe.
excellent and well run hotel,facilties are up to a very good standard.the staff well trained in their duties and of a pleasant dispossition
Hotel was very clean,the hotel is updating its rooms and they are excellent. Paul and Richard were great hosts and went out of their way to make you feel comfortable. None
Really nice, pleasant little hotel very close to the pleasure beach but off the main drag, so relatively quiet for Blackpool! The owners made us incredibly welcome and the breakfast was fantastic, lots of choice. Would definitely recommend The Corona if you're looking for somewhere pleasant to stay in Blackpool. Only one complaint...slightly hard pillows!
staff pleasant hotel very good breakfast excellent the room was clean tidy and the facilities were excellent, helped with gettin rooms together for my family appreciated this touch, would recommend this hotel for other guests
Comfortable clean rooms, very friendly management and staff. Excellent breakfast and very good evening meals. Would stay here again and recommend to others.
everthing staff ;room. and breakfast we think that may be try and do somethink about breakfast i my self queue for 10mins for bacon andegg to come then no toast so had to go back again then my breastfast was cold so may be thats is something that you may want to look at .
the room was very warm that is one plus point i suppose. i am trying to think of more material to write but i am sorry i am struggling with it. to be honest as it was classed as a 4 star hotel it just didnt live up to the stars in my opinion. the lift kept breaking down the menu stated boxing day, it was clean but it was just old hat and worn out the whole place. all in all maybe it is just a good place for older people to stay as they do not seem to know anything else. the hotels computors was down they did not know we was coming and we was told there is only this rough room left. so it appears we was staying in the rough room, even the bed squeked like mad and the chairs where ripped thanks.
The food, breakfast was lovely. The receptionists were very friendly. Nice relaxing evening entertainment The room
Nothing unfortunately. Very disapointed expected much more. Noise. Room immediateley above function room in use Fri and Sat night till 1am. If advised this was the case would not have stayed at this hotel.
Clean and friendly,good food. Nothing.
Poor service - insufficient staff
Frontline staff were very good, the breakfast was stone cold one morning, and one dinner was almost inedible We had to get someone to get drinks as the bar was not always staffed,
friendly staff,well presented food. location was fist rate as being on seafront was a priority. would rcommend this hotel to friends and family.
Easy access to trams,sea view,generally quiet Breakfast was shambles at times,not enough staff,tables not cleared,long queue self service
hotel was very good, staff were very friendly, our room was quite cold as someone kept leaving fire escape door open, but after a word at reseption we were given a fan heater to boost the temp of room, over all i would recomend the hotel to friends, thank you for an enjoyable stay nothing first class
location, food, service
Very comfortable hotel to stay at.
Very helpful staff, who were more than eager to please
Diner was not acceptable at the price very poor.
When we arrived the room given to us had no heating working, the front desk were very helpful and moved us to another room. However this also had no heating but again we were pleased the way it was handled by staff, an electric heater was installed. These things happen but it was the way it was put right that impressed us.
Room Service was disappointing - slow service, food was not as listed and expensive for the quality.
Very good hotel with welcoming staff. A long walk to the room. The room was quite cold but a heater was provided on request.
The cleanliness of the room and the general warmth and comfort of the hotel The cooked breakfast was very disappointing. It was very oily and tasted like it had all been cooked in the same pan!! It sounded far nicer on the menu than it actually was.
Strong smell of drains in the public area, repairs were on going.
The food was good, enjoyed the atmosphere, enjoyed the sauna etc. My quests also staying at the hotel as my treat commented on the lack of biscuits on the tea tray and also maybe tissues and various complementary bathing items i.e. shower cap, shoe cleaning kit etc. But,unlike them I didn't feel this was such a big deal.
Well appointed refurbished botique style roms, good decor, breakfast was very good Service was somewhat surley, evening meal limited choice but OK for value. Some unecessary economies e.g on ethin towel and inferior toilet paper
long walks on the sand
Great for the children Unfortunately our room was close to the air extractors so it was very noisey during the night. Small point but a choice of bread would have been appreaciated rather than white sliced bread.
room was well decorated felt very cosy. good color combination there was no AC.on the room!! com'on man, three star hotels got to have AC>!!
Great food,helpfull friendly staff. Excellent seaside location. No view from room.
the entertainment and the bedroom was nice and quiet the 4 poster bed was a nice touch also this pleased my wife.
The Hotel was excellent and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. It is very nicely decorated and the complimentary dinner we received was extremely good. The children also had a halloween party bag waiting for them in their room which was a nice touch. Car parking can be a bit of a problem, our car was blocked in by another guest and as they do not take registration numbers as part of check -in we could not locate the owner. We were taking the children to see the illuminations which was the purpose of the trip, however the helpful receptionists managed to eventually find the errant parker.
Room, recently refurbished, was too hot - it needed air conditioning, we had to turn off the plasma TV because of the heat it was generating!
The staff were friendly and the room was clean. I was very pleased that the hotel although busy was quiet - no dreaded tag/hen parties. All in all, a pleasant stay and very convenient for access to the airport/Blackpool.
We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the Fairmile. The owners were were friendly and welcoming. Our room was very well located,clean and extremely comfortable. Excellent value for money.
Friendly family hotel, excellent breakfast, great location, lovely and clean and warm. Would return again.
Very welcoming and friendly proprietors. Comfortable room/bed. Excellent breakfast. Great value for money. Many hotels of supposedly "higher class" could learn from standards at The Fairmile.
very friendly and helpful owners providing a good breakfast in the morning
The location was very good and the staff friendly. The breakfsat was cooked to order and that was really great. The shower was not good. It kept going hot and cold all by itself and the bathroom was very very small.
Great location, good atmosphere, great food, nice warm room and friendly staff. Adjacent to our room there was a noisy boiler/heating system which woke us very early.
Lovely b&b, rooms very clean and breakfast very tasty. I booked a twin room, however we were given a double, I advised we had booked a twin and they gave us our own room at no extra cost.
Recently refubished, lovely atmosphere, combines the good points of staying in a pub and staying in an hotel. My reservation didn't seem to be there at check-in, but appeared later. However this was not a problem.
Exceptional location and attention from the sdtaff None - the road works outside were beyond your control [and aere an overall benifit to the area]
Friendly staff Good food Nice room A lot of road traffic noise
The Mill Inn has a very nice relaxing atmosphere. The new manageress in very attentive and welcoming and oversees her staff very well.
Lovely large room, attractive setting
Me and my husband went on a weekend break, just to relax and this was the perfect place to do it!! The hotel, staff and food were excelent. I would recommend this hotel to anybody as its in a quiet location but a short distance from Lancaster, if a busier break was wanted!!
The welcome from the staff and the place in general. No, but the farm next door was a mess a row of well planted trees would hide it.
fantastic to stay in a hotel were the staff are there for you not just the wages, worm and helpfull staff and managment
Meal times were rather restrictive. 9am latest breakfast and 8.30pm for dinner.
The newly appointed manager was clearly giving it her all . . . and was still smiling.
it was clean and the staff were friendly and the food was good I would have liked the bed to have had a padded mattress cover on it I think it makes the bed more comftable and more hygenic than just a sheet on the mattress
Excellent location and accommadation .The staff were second to none and very friendly,professional and helpful in every aspect.I Have already revisited the hotel and recommended it to friends.
The staff were pleasant and friendly and the location was quiet yet not far from Lancaster. We were happy to bring guests for our evening meal. The only minor issue was the accompaniments to dishes, ie tartar sauce for with fish, butter for bread with soup, brown bread to accompany smoked salmon, naan bread for curry, ketchup and other condiments were not offered and we had to ask for them but apart from that the food was of a high standard and very enjoyable.
Staff friendly, excellent parking off road, good public rooms, hearty English breakfast,walking distance to town centre and attractions. Lack of ventilation in the room. I.E. two very small transom windows, found it rather warm overnight. Otherwise the room was adequate for an overnight stay.
I only stayed one night as due to the season was moved to the Lawson on the second day. However what I saw was very good
Julie (sorry if I got your name wrong!) was excellent, the best service provided! the spring matress!
(Our)Julie was great,breakfast was excellent, Parking was great
This hotel was very central and pretty cheap, the owners were lovely, very friendly and accommodating. They let me keep the car in their car park for the day even after I had checked out.
the staff were very friendly and helpful.The bar was open 24 hrs with very reasonable prices. .Some of our rooms were a bit shabby.
The staff were very friendly and made us very welsom, and it was in a really good location near to the Tower and all the shops. The price was very good too!
Friendly staff no
All the staff were very friendly & helpful. Good car parking & easy walk to tower & shops the cooked part of the breakfast - the worst we have had
Lovely owners, and an overall nice, clean hotel, but as I told the owners as we checked out, I could feel the springs in my mattrass and had a very bad night's sleep. If we stayed there again, I'd want to find out first if the bed in our room was going to be comfortable
The staff were excelent the groud floor of this hotel was up to the standard we expect, however the room was disapointing. The room we were given was not the room we booked after complaining at reception we were given another room but this was still not as good as we expeted.
handly location to office No service before 7am - there was no one around when I left at 6:45. There was no breakfast or an offer of a contential breakfast
Good food. Friendly staff
Excellent standard throughout & value for money. I will be back again.
The public areas of the hotel were pleasant enough and the location was ideal as it is close to the town centre and the beach. We had no trouble parking in the carpark. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and the food was ok but a bit pricey for what you got but we enjoyed the breakfast. The bedroom, which was to the rear of the hotel with a poor outlook, had been updated but the bathroom was in a 80's time warp with a digustingly brown stained toilet and a bath tap that was loose. The bed was so hard that both my partner and I were in pain the following morning and it was seemed a very small double. I felt the receptionist could do with some extra customer care training as she seemed at a loss as to how to respond to negative comments when she asked, at our departure, if everything had been ok.
the food boiler for swimming poll was not out of order, so could not use the pool
lovely room, great views out but also great views into the floor to ceiling windows from passers by as there were no net curtains only two disabled parking bays for such a big hotel
Excellent location with ample parking with a warm inviting interior, helpful professional staff who were always pleased to help.
Rooms were very comfortable No lift to the second floor in the part of the hotel we stayed. Guests should be informed of this when booking, as in our case my husband suffers from arthritis in his knees and found it difficult getting up and down stairs
we know it from the past we love st annes walking shoping dining parking only 1 houer from home no lift to bedroom im a blue badge holder
The rooms were ok, hotel clean and a good breakfast The hotel needs updating, it was awfull. Woke up to rain water dripping on my head and pillows, which were about 3 in thick. I expected better.
beds were clean and breakfast was excellent
All spot on
Leaving! Hotel staff were uninviting, needs a major refit and one day had no power so was unable to have breakfast or use any facilities - no refund or replacement food offered, very cheap basic hotel, small rooms, creaky floorboards, poor decal, mouldy shower,
Excellent recommendation re: where to dine
The bed was extremely comfortable. The room and bathroom were both very small.
Nothing it was ok as a crash pad nothing else The choice of breakfast was basic. No fresh fruit
Stayed overnight to avoid night time driving on the motorway.very difficult to find parking space.website should mention that.Booked the economical room through booking.com but the lady said she doesn't have that room available so had to call customer care at booking.com.finally got the room at same price so that was good. Left early morning so can not comment on breakfast. Overall value for money. Parking and ruddiness of the hotel lady. I have pity on her.Not good for leisure.
breakfast tiny en suite
It was convenient for our purpose and inexpensive. The room was not ready at the time promised. The staff was not especially friendly.
Warm welcome, helpful staff.Comfortable beds. Only stayed for one night but the breakfast was excellent. The bathroom was a bit on the small side.
the breakfast would have liked a glass of wine before going out to have tea
a fantastic break, very clean rooms, lovely breakfast, great location near pleasure beach.
Cleanliness of room and staff was informed on web their was a pool table, darts etc. This was not the case. Bar not manned all evening
It was nice, clean and warm and the owners was friendly and helpful. A nice hotel for a short break by the sea. I would stay there again.
excellent breakfast, very clean rooms, friendly staff
The standard of cleanliness was excellent, the staff were helpful and friendly.
Cleanliness of the room and very accommodating Not being able to park close to the hotel
staff were very pleasant high standard in cleanliness also very friendly alround good family holiday break. just off south beach 2 min from pleasure beach and tram stops big thanks to john and jossie for a good weekend
Friendly staff and lovely welcome. The room was a bit small and breakfast was only served till 9am!
Food - Quality, quantity & choice. The service was also excellent, food was at your table within minutes of ordering. Parking was a bit hit & miss. Being a week-ender all spaces taken up when I arrived, had to park on street, but this seems to apply to all hotels on the Blackpool seafront.
The heated pool, sauna & jacuzzi were fab. Breakfast was average, but the service in the dining room was excellent. Bedroom was ok, but the bathroom was pokey, so small in fact that you had to sit sideways on the loo because your legs would not fit in between the loo & wall! We checked in at 1.50pm (10 mins before the time on our booking confirmation) & were made to hang around in the reception area for 10 mins like naughty school children. Found the experience very unprofessional. Another thing that bothered me was the fact there was no sink in the bathroom, had to use the basin in the bedroom after using the toilet - I hope they give that handle a good clean after every visitor!
Room cleanliness & comfort & the fact it was so quiet & peaceful at the back of the hotel.
The staff were superb, from initial greeting at the door to booking out they couldn't do enough for us. The entertainment in the evening was the best I've seen at a British hotel. Excellent! Car parking is at a premium and you can't book it. Be prepared to drop off your gear and park away from the hotel.
The food was well presented,lots of choice and served by attentive waiters. The room we booked was a little small, so upgraded to a bigger room with a side view of the sea, which was wonderful.
Excellent food and entertainment To many children runing about at night
the hotel is of a very good standard,my wife and i have stayed there on many occasions and have yet to find any faults,heres to the next visit.
staff were ok hotel ok parking not ok. parking.
Lack of parking, room was tired and small in need of refurbishment,cost was high for what you got. I have stayed in hotels all over the country and the world both for pleasure and work and can honestly say this was one of the dearest and poorest I have stayed in.
All of the staff were really polite and friendly, we look forward to our next visit. Nothing at all.
the room was very clean and they cleaned the room every day and that was plus point off my stay. the food was not good at all and some of the check in staff was not very helpfull
the staff were great did not recieve a sea view
it was well furbished, reception were helpful and informative, food very good, staff pleasant and cheery my single room was a bit small
Very friendly and helpful staff. Gave good advice and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely return in the future. Thanks v much :) I was woken by noise (prob from kitchen) at approx. 6.30am.
i didnt like the idea of the lounge area of the hotel being booked privatley so i was unable to use that part of the hotel the bar area in the dining side was not really adequate for relaxing with a drink
Modern and comfortable bedroom. Well presented dinner and excellent breakfasts Staff seemed a bit "fed up"!
Clean rooms,very modern. Breakfast was a buffet where you can eat as much as you like! Nice dining room, nice cutlery. Travel cots were free on request as long as you booked them in advance. Decent location with seaview. Hotel was easy to get to from the motorway & directions we were given were good. Shower was so small. Corridors/lifts very small. Baring in mind we had taken our 5 month old baby, we struggled getting to & out of our room. As the weather was cold, we stayed in but there wasn't much choice in terms of tv channels. We couldn't have one or two lights on at the same time in the hotel room - if we wanted one light on we had to turn them all on.
Room was comfortable, clean and had a good shower. Plenty of space to do paperwork. Staff were very pleasant and room service was excellent. Location was important to me as I need to be close to my very elderly Mum who lives 10 mins walk away. I have stayed here before and would do so again. Breakfast tea/coffeee was served in vacuum jugs at the counter but this may have been due to a large coach party being served at the same time.
