      Historical Traveler Reviews Canasta Hotel Blackpool

      The best hotel

      from

      The CANASTA HOTEL is the best in Blackpool. We have stayed on a number of occasions and thoroughly enjoyed each visit. Mandy, Doug and all the staffare all friendly and put them selves out to make your stay memorable. The hotel is spotless and beautifully fitted out, the choice of rooms are great and the breakfast menu is second to none. FABULOUS

      Dissapointed

      from

      Very very average if not slightly below booked on account of ratings on here. How it was hotel of the year i will never know.

      Shall not be back

      Very dissapointed

      from

      Me and my partner stayed at the Hotel Canasta in Blackpool recently, after viewing their web site, which seemed very promising. The hotel apparantly won Hotel Of the Year 2004, which after staying there, I find very hard to believe! The staff were unhelpful and dis-interested, they couldnt even be bothered to show us to our room. The room itself we payed extra for on account of it having a four poster bed, wish we'd spent the extra money getting a room with a half decent view! Our room overlooked a scruffy backyard and a road. The room itself had a broken socket plug, broken toliet seat, peeling wallpaper and a table that consisted of one piece of MDF balancing on another piece! We discovered the 'table' when trying to make a cup of tea with a kettle that couldnt reach the (broken) socket. Breakfast was average, they were quick, but failed to bring half of what we asked for. And again, the staff were unhelpful and surly. Finally, the thing that bugged us the most, was the fact we had to park our new car in a badly lit side street because there was no parking available. When we asked one of the staff to let us know when a space became available, he told us to 'check yourselves, Im too busy'! All in all not a great experience and I wouldnt recommend it to anyone.

      If you go to Blackpool try and stay here.

      My wife and i stayed at the Canasta for a couple of nights midweek last May. I was on a bit of a sea air break after suffering heart problems in March. We never mentioned this to the staff, but they could not have done more for us if they had known. Always offering a brew when you walk through the door and a cheerful attitude till bed time.

      Never overbearing but there ready and willing if requested. We were in a lovely 4 poster room and it was spotless. The breakfast was a treat after 2 months of fruit for breaky.

      The best hotel in blackpool

      from

      stayed at the hotel on my birthday 18th june for 2 nights. the atmosphere was excellent. the staff were freindly. the room where we stayed in was spotless. we would recomend the stay to family and friends. it was that good we have booked again in october.

      Not our Hotel of the year.

      from

      My family have just returned from 3 days at the Canasta Hotel, my Sister, Brother-in-law and two children came from America, my Daughter from England. myself from Southern Ireland.

      I found them to be particularly unhelpfull, and they averted their eyes rather than have to talk to you, one had the feeling that they were doing you the favour of allowing you to stay with them, when my Brother-in-law went to pay his bill, mine host actually said to him " This is the best part getting the money ".

      I have been to Blackpool many, many times when I lived in England, and stayed at the cheapest and the dearest BB, Hotels, given the chance I would have stayed at the cheapest, tiniest BB, Hotel where mine hosts were wonderful than have to have had put up with this, though in fairness I would say apart from mine hosts, the other staff were wonderful and friendly, and could not do enough for you, especially when serving breakfast to our extended, eclectic eating family.

      If I was offered a one week holiday free of charge in this Hotel, I would decline, we were all left wondering if this was Hotel of the Year, what were the others like.

      I'm glad they found the staff attentive to their needs

      Perfect - just perfect!!

      from

      We had a great stay at the Canasta. It's in the perfect location just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of town centre yet near enough to walk there. Rooms are spotlessly clean and include a hair drier and trouser press (which hubby was most impressed with).

      Breakfast is enormous with a great selection - even pancakes which the kids loved. Staff are VERY friendly and nothing is too much trouble.

      We'll definitely be back!

      You can do no better than the canasta

      from

      the rooms are spotless, the breakfast is delicious, the staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. free tea and coffee all day. what more do you need. I can't praise it enough.

But now, having just made a delivery of stuff I want to keep for when I return (or at least haven't sifted through yet) to my parent's; had a vegan cake trial for my sisters wedding and returned to Liverpool with at least five of the things on that to do list crossed off; I'm definitely beginning to get a bit ...

      ... Matt and I tried out the Irish Coffees....v. good.

      Marni and Brody were in good form today. There was an elderly couple sitting behind us waiting to be picked up by their driver who was stuck in the snow. Marni and Brody entertained them for most of our lunch. It was very cute and it definitely made the couples wait more enjoyable.

      After our lazy lunch we walked back and the kids walked back along the wall again.

Trevor and I sat for a bit longer and had some more drinks, then a couple of the dance hosts, Derek and Joan, came to join us. They both complimented me on the Gothic evening dress I’d worn last night, and we spent some time in conversation with them before going to bed well after 1.00am.

      After working up a good sweat we returned to the cabin, got changed and freshened up a bit, then went to the Secret Garden again to have a light lunch.

      At three o’clock I went along to the salon to get my hair put up in preparation for the captain’s welcome cocktail party at 5.30pm. The hairdresser did a really nice job, and I left the salon looking as though my hair had loads of volume. Several ...

      Our cabin is a superior outside one, with a window instead of portholes, twin beds, a dressing table and a couple of chairs. The bathroom has a bath tub as well as a shower. This would be our ‘home’ for the next 16 nights. :-)
