The streets signs are impossible to see, so it has been fun navigating around the millions of tiny, narrow streets! But everyone has been really helpful and friendly.
The weather at the game was surprisingly warm. All the local at the game yesterday looked like they were going to expire in the heat! (I reckon it was about 24 deg).
... England and then had to catch another train on platform 7 to Liverpool and once again waited about 15 min. And another hour later we got to Liverpool. Our hotel was just a few blocks away (thanks Susan) so we got rid of our luggage and I was starved for some real food so walked to The Hub bar and kitchen , walked around to look at shops BUT they were all closing at 6;30! I didn't realize Europe closed so early! I guess it gives me time to blog this. Good nite at 7:03pm ...
... going to Oz! People keep telling me it will be the most amazing thing I'll ever do... I am looking forward to seeing the world, meeting new people, experiencing different cultures but most of all I'm looking forward to finding ME! The countdown is on ...
After a meandering trip from the Holyhead Ferry Terminal, we called in to a small village by the name of Risley, which is Jane's maiden name, so we were interested to see if there were any family connections. As luck would have it we struck pay dirt. Her Majesty's Prison. Oh and Risley Moss, a nature reserve, the land on which it is situated was in the Risley family over 500 years ago. We arrived in Blackpool, a seaside ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Vidella Hotel Blackpool
One to avoid
we stayed for four days, not once did we have a good night sleep, even after a few beers, although we had clean towels, that was as about as much cleaning the room got, not once were the bed covers changed. on the last night a sunday, people were down in the bar, locals i think, at around 1pm, and all you could hear was dance music, and shouting. by 6 oclock the next morning it was still going on, so we had had enough and left to get home and get some rest, for the money we payed to stay here, i think it was a complete rip off, one to avoid at all times.
The brochure for the Vidella hotel has wonderful pictures giving a good impression, as does their web site. However, reality is very far removed from these images.
Basil Fawlty, we have found a hotel that makes Fawlty Towers seem like a palace. I would definitely not recommend the Vidella Hotel to anyone.
Foru days before getting to the hotel, they phoned to cancel the booking
Just four days before starting our holidays, we had a phone call from Vidella Hotel to cancel our booking, due, according to them, to a double booking thay had made by mistake. We reserved our accomodation at the beginning of February and was confirmed by email and telephone the 19th of that month. Because of this and being Easter week we were left with nowhere to stay. Our flight from Spain had been already booked, so you can imagine the big problem. We would like to warn all its possible costumers to be careful about this unprofessional and shameful behaviour.
We stayed at the vidella hotel 22-24th march 2006,
we had a great time, the rooms were nice and tidy, the bathrooms were a bit on the small side but certanley managable, the food was absolutley gorgeous the best weve had from blackpool and the eating area was also very nice,the staff were great, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, anything you needed they took care of it straight away. the bar area was lovely very stylish, great seating, pool table etc.
will definatley be returning to this hotel again had an excellent time
We are a group of 12 well behaved girls that stayed at the vidella hotel & we all totally enjoyed our stay.The bedding was at a very high standard of quality & clenliness along with the towels.The rooms were cosy & clean & servised daily.The breakfast was cooked to everyones liking and nothing was to much trouble for the very friendly & helpfull staff & management.We would recomend this hotel to anyone thats looking for a great stay in blackpool & we would like to thank jhon & neil (THE OWNERS)for making our weekend in blackpool completley enjoyable.
New year 2005
Having had three hotels to choose from, we decided on this due to the modern bar!! The hotel and staff are superb, not sure about the previous remarks, but given that it was new year, we may have expected something similar due to the hotel being extremly busy. But no we thought it was great and really pleased that we chose it. The staff are friendly and helpful and try to make sure that you enjoy your stay. The bedrooms i didnt think were that bad, but i beleive they are still to be decorated. The entertainment was excellent and the quizzes were fun too. Overall a thoroughly enjoyed holiday, booking again for new year 2006.
I have stayed at worse Blackpool B&Bs, but nevertheless apart from the good location and the tidy EXTERIOR of the hotel, there is nothing to recommend the Vidella.
The Vidella Hotel is excellent for all kinds of people. It has excellent cuisine and the hotel bedrooms are really comfortable. The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. You ask and your wish is their command!
It is close to all the amenities and is in an excellent location.
Having visited it this year I am looking forward to returning next year.
