Today we travelle to Liverpool to see Craig's beloved Liverpool play at Anfield. Unfortunately we lost 2-0 to Southampton, and we received a parking ticket! But the boys all had a wonderful time. The seats were great, the atmosphere was good (esp during 'you'll never walk alone'). We had dinner in the 'Boot Room Cafe' afterwards, which was a great way to end ...
This morning started with a 6:30 taxi ride to to the Ulyses IRISH FERRY in Dublin. We boarded after going security with our luggage and went up to the Club where we had free snacks for our 3 hour voyage to Holy Rod in Wales. I didn't get sea sick but Iayed down most of the trip. As you am see from pics it was not at all crowded. We landed about 11:30 and a bus drove us to the station to get a train to Liverpool . We only had to wait about 15 min. We rode it about a hour ...
... 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 Edwardian Hotel Blackpool
This is by far the worst hotel i have ever stayed in, it had no disabled access the rooms where dirty and smelly, towels where not changed we got dirty towels given back all folded up on bed,the hotel in general was dirty, some staff were dirty and very unhelpful, will never stay there again even if it was free.
I went to the edwardian hotel with my two sons in october 2003. I am disabled but, nothing was too much trouble for the staff of the edwardian. Everyone was polite and made me feel at home. We shall definately go there again.
For the staffs benefit (Bradford Bulls)
My family & I have stayed at this hotel for a number of years, ususally around October & have never experienced any problems what so ever (unless you count the weather which I doubt you could blame the hotel for). The staff have always been helpful & friendly & the food excellant. My children (16,11,8) think the hotel is brilliant as they are entertained every night & they are allowed to play (as children do!). We fully xpect to be going again in 2004 & are sure of the usual high standards.
i vistied edwadian hotel in july for 2 nights and thought it was a loveley hotel the food was the best and room was cleaned everyday ! and we booked before we came home to stay 4 days with the children and mum and dad in september ! it was totlely 100% good
Value for money
We booked this hotel over the phone when I read the reviews on your site I nearly cancelled. but decided to give it a try anyway. This hotel is on the front and is in a good location rooms were basic but clean and the shower was good. The food was a six course prawn cocktail, soup,rolls and butter, gammon steak or braised steak which melted in your mouth potatoes broccoli, choice of sweet was ice cream gateaux or spotted dick and custard tea and coffee and a free bottle of wine. Breakfast was cornflakes then a fry up toast tea all for £30 a night DB&B or £25 for B&B What do you get for that kind of money nowadays.
Worst ever hotel
Stayed for 3nights,room never cleaned service appalling
Good value for money in an excellent location
Superb location right on the front, freindly welcome and luckily secured a sea view room. Room very tidy with everything you need. Evening meal and breakfast 1st class (malcom very entertaining). Entertainment laid on in the evening, and good prices at the bar. Now our only place to stay in Blackpool.......
GREAT ATMOSPHERE NICE ROOMS
stayed here over easter expected a basic hotel but found a nice hotel very pleased with our room overlooking the north sea with a walk on balcony feeling the fresh sea air in the morning before going for breakfast staff are very polite and the entertainment was really good only problem was we wanted to go out to see blackpool but enjoyed the entertainment so much the other half wouldnt go out next day i was told that it was recently refurbished expected lick of paint but found a very clean and nicely decorated hotel/home full marks and thanks for a great holiday ta paul/vicky
Avoid this place!
Stayed here recently and hated it. I have visited most of the hotels on the promonade and this is by far the worst. The staff are rude and unhelpful, the rooms smell and are dirty and the food is uneatable. On the day of departure we left the room to move our bags downstairs only to return to the room to find the cleaner had stolen one of our jackets! Never again.
i spent a weekend at this hotel about a year ago and it was dirty, run down just horrible. I asked for my money back but was told no refunds are given (by the way they only take cash no credit cards I wonder why!) My room was changed to a bigger dirty room the sheets looked new so we stayed the further night as we had no money to do otherwise. We did not shower as the shower was dirty and smelly and we ate out instead of at their grotty basement dinning room with waitresses whose aprons were dirty and their hair all over the place. we asked for a jug of water which we received but was told there were no glasses we asked for two straws. my advice do not go there!
