Historical Traveler Reviews Norbreck Castle Hotel Blackpool
Needs a Changing Rooms makeover
Hotel very run down. Rooms were like the standard of a cheap and nasty B&B. Beds were falling apart and bed linen was badly torn. Really needs to be redecorated. Don't feel the price was terribly cheap given the fact it was so run down. Great childrens entertainment. Good food - both choice and quality. View from our room was onto the backyard - empty bottles, skips of refuse etc. Having said that it was difficult to see very much as the windows had not been cleaned in about 20 years!
Would only recommend to someone or go back myself if they improved the place drastically.
Value for Money ....... If that's what you want!
Have stayed at the Norbreck and loved it! OK, it was a little run down but the prices reflected that. Where can you get bed and breakfast, sea view, great parking, swimming pool and leisure facilities, kid's soft play room, nightclub, lovely dining room and lounge for £30p per night in July! Going back in October!
Always wanted to stay in a castle
Dont believe the reviews that say all these nasty things about the Norbreck. My sister and I stayed there and we liked our room, the staff were friendly, polite and helpful. There was nothing wrong with the food. I have stayed in far worse hotels belonging to large chains of hotels which claim to offer a better service than the Norbreck. Count yourself lucky that the fire alarm didnt go off three times in the same night like a certain London hotel which shall remain nameless. Count yourself lucky not to have drunk people sleeping in the hotel corridors. The Norbreck is a nice quiet hotel, perfectly situated not too far and not too close to Blackpool. It was a good base for our stay and not too expensive. I have nothing bad in any way to say about it.
Death by sausage !!
My god , where do you start with this messy , run down tip , changing from one undermaintained dreary room to another after the ceiling collapsed (we were asked if we wanted to move rooms or if we could put up with the one we were in, for gods sake there was water gathering in buckets !! )they almost killed me with an undercooked sausage at breakfast the following day..one week to recover..three month's to calm down and write a review which I consider to be generous given the circumstances..save a cruise missile aimed at iraq..fire it at this doss house.
Had a great time, staff were friendly, leisure facillities were brilliant. We shall return.
One night @ The Norbreck.
Great brochure! looks run down from outside, alright inside, got last minute deal, cheap room, b&b. good service and very helpful staff.
Stayed there last year....terrible.......
Stayed there last year, had to change rooms twice....The hotel is very run down and not well maintained. We had no hot water and the room was freezing at night.....We will never be back..
horrible paid £139.00 for one night not including bed & breakfast.
Will never go back, room was alright except for the damp patch on the wall
It was absolutely fantastic i met my boyfriend there!
A Fine Hotel
I stayed at the Norbreck Castle in June and would like to say that a wonderful trip was had by all. The staff in all departments were faultlessly friendly, the food was delicious and the variety of activities left one exhausted. I especially liked the way that there is the quieter, more sedate Conservatory Bar for the older crowd, then the lively and fun Copper Jacks bar for the young or the young at heart.
A brilliant time was had by all and we will be sure to book to come again next year, and hopefully many years into the future.

... tunnel tank with ducks swimming in the top! And the obligatory piranhas, obviously not in the same tank! They had talks on at various points, and Ben held a giant land snail! He was a start, as was nana for facilitating! She drew the line at the cockroach. Leisurely drive back to Yanwath and fish and chips for tea. Not the nicest I've tasted, literally swimming in a very dark oil, but it did the job. ...

Juliet was about to apply her sun cream when we noticed that what she thought was sun cream was actually Spanish hairspray. She had been using it all day yesterday at Sanga and wondered why it had not been very effective!
