Historical Traveler Reviews Savoy Hotel Blackpool
booked a last minute short break for myself husband and two daughters after a six hour drive we arrived at the hotel to be told that our room would not be ready for another two hours we came back at three and was very rudely passed a key from receptionist without being told room number or directions to room lift wasnt working so had to walk up stairs. On entering the room we were very disappionted to say the least we had booked a family room what we had was a double room and a cupboard in which the folding bed they had provided didnt even fold out properly the walls were damp the windows filthy and the room was freezing because the window was jammed open the windowsills were covered in brickwork that had been falling in from outside and the paper was falling of the wall i wouldnt have even washed my dog in the bath i immediately got on the phone to the booking agent and told her to get us out of there we sat for a hour in the car waiting for her to arrange this because i wouldnt have let my kids even sit on the beds for that long and as i handeed my key back to reception at least six other families were complaining about various things also were we reloccated to the norbreck castle hotel which i would recommend but steer well clear of the savoy they need to seriously shut down and get sorted out before they are closed down for good.
Out of the tacky bit!
We booked this hotel for its name and because we wanted to be out of the trad bit of Blackpool. Already had t shirts etc. The North Shore sounded a bit posh and as we were going to the Womens' Golf Open at Royal Lytham St Annes..... fitting.
The weather on arrival was appalling and did not help the sad and tired grand lady hotel of the thirties to look her best.
Many of the grand old ladies who had booked in did not look their best either when they were forced to leave the hotel during dinner, when the fire alarm interrupted their dinner and dance night.
At this point the rain was still horizontal and the wind was never ending. Some had had the foresight to assemble in the telephone booth opposite the hotel rather than the northerley exposed car park.
We booked a cab to town to escape the fire practice and had a very nice meal at Kwizeen on King Street ........---. ..Very good specialist cuisine quite unlike the majority of eating establishments in Blackpool. ( please say it was the golfing girls who recommended the restaurant, although we found it through the internet.)
Back at base ! Room was basic but clean, remote for tv had no batteries but it served its purpose. Up early so missed breakfast.
We booked cheaply for two nights but only stayed the one. The golf at Lytham was a brilliant day......... but preferred to drive the 330 miles home than stay in Blackpool for a further night.
I rest my case, in fact, have unpacked it already! No going back then............................ oh no , no way!
£20.00 a night - can't complain
I booked this hotel for a cheap night out in Blackpool, it cost £20.00 per person per night with Breakfast in the morning.
Contrary to the other reviews, our room was clean, window's opened and the shower was old but pretty -- powerful!
Breakfast was good, eat as much as you like (as long as your hangover is not to bad!), no black pudding though!
For £20.00 a night you can't go wrong!
Vile, vile, vile. This hotel is one of the worst ones I have EVER stayed in. Usually stay in the Hilton but it was fully booked as most of the other hotels were also. I can see now why this one wasnt! When we got there the receptionist was so ignorant and the rooms still were not ready. We had to leave our luggage in a dindgy back room and she proceeded to tell us that they could not be responsible for our bags. Seeing as our rooms were not going to be ready for another 2 hours (4pm!) we had to leave them otherwise we would have missed the day. The food was garbage and you wouldnt have fed it to the dog, the whole hotel was dirty and run down, you could hear EVRY noise from the rroms either side of you/under you/above you and it at 5.30am one morning sounded like the marathom was coming through the hotel. You cant roll over in bed for fear that you are going to wake the whole floor up. My only comment to them was to knock it down and start again which me and my 2 friends whole heartedly agreed with. The only thing which was OK were the beds in the family room, we had 2 doubles and 1 single and they were very comfy with a lovely fleece over the top. Overall, very very dissapointing and I would not recommend this squalour to anybody. ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Very good hotel
Prior to staying at the savoy i read the reviews and went very concerned. But all I can say is we must have fallen lucky as our 3rd floor bedroom was above average and very clean. The breakfast was ok so all in all we had a decent stay.
We stayed at the Savoy Hotel Blackpool on the 17th of June 2006 for a friends 40th birthday. The hotel was a little run down but was ok in the reception and bar. We were given our keys when we arrived when we found our rooms we were in for a surprise, the widows looked like they hadn't been cleaned since 1901, the windows didn't open, the window sills were covered in dust and insects, the wardrobe smelt like urine, the wallpaper was hanging off the walls all in all disguisting!! If I would recommend a hotel I certainly would NOT recommend Savoy Hotel, you will be better getting a small b&b which from past experience are small but clean.
six of us booked with this hotel for a one nite stay .we were allocated three rooms, all rooms were dirty and looked like they hadnt seen a cleaner in months. the windows were very dirty and didnt look like they had ever seen a window cleaner.in one of the rooms the ceiling was all hanging down in the bathroom. the hotel is badly in need of new decoration paper falling of everywhere.we reported our room being dirty ,the young lady at reception said she would get it sorted .on our return in the evening the room was still the same full of dust. it was like they didnt care and were used to people complaining. we would not reccomend this hotel to anybody .
Like every cliche of the run down UK seaside hotel trading on formergrandeur
Well it was an interesting one...firstly, let's start with the good-
We paid £20 for one night's accomodation which is excellent, so we didn't have any high expectations. We were happy with the breakfast (had worse, had better) no service though, waiting for 20 mins to be acknowledged or offered coffee so we just went for it, made the most of it and escaped with some muffins(!) which were very nice. Nothing wrong with the food at all but just the apathy and sombreness of the faded art deco surroundings made for a strange situation that could make you laugh at the tragedy of a bygone era or cross that no-one seemed interested in having customers.
Staying at the hotel is like kind of like experiencing a bizarre time warp or dust coated nostalgia when everyone took their holiday at the British coasts and no-one minded sleeping in a bath on a bank holiday weekend.
The room we had was, oddly a two bedroomed room (diodn't need/request this) with a delightful view of a graffiti defaced wall, some kind of rooftop and more walls. I'm sure that in the 80's people would have appreciated the wall length white wardrobes with built in dresser and the pink corner bath but it was this strange combination of excess and shabbiness and plenty of mould that really makes you unsure of what to do with yourself.
The hotel was fine for our purpose, we were having a trip around the UK for the week(went to Dublin from there, then London). It's not somewhere I would chose to stay in the future but I wouldn't go out of my way to avoid it.
We had a lovely time in Blackpool. We usually stay at The Old Coach House, and this is certainly to be recommended as a really excellent hotel (Dean Street) and would return there every time. Hope this helps!!
Worse than Fawlty Towers
Stayed for one night. Left keys with reception and when we returned at 11.00 our property had been stolen laptop, camera PSP, without a sign of forced entry. Shoddy service and no customer care to speak off. Rooms are filthy and decor might have been ok in 1950 but not in 2006. Advice is stay well clear. If you do stay leave your belonging in the car where they are safer.
Hmmmmmm ok but
Stayed at the Savoy hotel with my mum at the beginning of May for a line-dancing weekend. £160 for two days half board.
The hotel as a whole was ok but the lack of money not spent on it is now showing. I bet in its hay day this hotel would have been the best but now cracks are showing.
Rooms - We booked a non-smoking room but were given a smoking. We complained at reception that said that all rooms are not smoking. I said well all the non-smoking have signed on (Floor 3) them apart from our whole floor and the room smells of smoke. The guy at reception gave us another room, a single that was obviously no good. Due to a wedding taking place that day no other rooms where available after waiting 3 hours. So I suggested some strong air freshener and for the maid to open the windows. 10 mins later we finally had our room.
Anyway on a brighter note my Nan and friend also stayed at the hotel, we had a little look at their room, which was nice and had a lovely sea view, so I guess it's just the luck of the draw. Ask for any room on the 3rd floor (room 302).
Food - The food was awful. Evening Meal was a little OTT nothing if you're a plain eater, which my mum was so she just ate bread and butter. The food was swimming in sauce and wasn't really cooked properly.
Breakfast was quite nice apart from the black pudding, which was burnt to a crisp.
I'd recommend this hotel for people who would like a hotel in Blackpool out of the way from the stag and hen dos. Its location is about 20 mins walk from the Blackpool tower but the walk to your hotel is along the beach and the sunsets where lovely.
The hotel rooms are standard and the floor boards crake a lot but it's only a room which your hardly ever in anyway.

... I've gone from having something in common with everyone around me to almost nothing in common with anyone. I went to have lunch with a friend of mine who I was teaching with in Beijing and he felt the same as me. As he put it "One minute I was living the dream, the next I'm back in Wigan". I couldn't have phrased it any better if I tried. I am still with Susan, its difficult for both of us but we are hanging in there. I ring her whenever I can but it ...
The morning broke reasonably fine although rain threatened. So we decided to go for a walk in Ulverston through the "lanes". It was pleasant but started to rain so we cut it short. After lunch Helen produced a variant on Monopoly which uses cards only and no board but which is much faster. It was fun to try it and we are going to buy it when we get back ...
... a local wine bar where we shared happy memories and enjoyed the being together. Tuesday, Maf organised for us all to catch the steam train and then a ferry on Lake Windermere. We enjoyed a wonderful picnic lunch on board and enjoyed a walk around the village of Bowness. We then all met for dinner at a local pub called Stan Laurel. Was a fabulous day. Stan Laurel of Laurel and Hardy fame was born in ...

The sun was shining and it was a really nice walk in the event we went to the "Stagger Inn" at Stainton with Adgarley and had a really good meal together despite the somewhat twee name of the ...
