Don't waste your money this hotel have appalling standards.i had room 104 it's supposed to be a double? It is a very small single with the smallest double bed I've seen wedged between the door and wall.it only had access via one side it is totally unacceptable to have a bed when you're expected to climb over each other to get in.the Room furniture was splattered with paint inside and out, even a charity shop would not sell that rubbish, the hairdryer was sticky and nasty to touch.holes in the wall dirty Windows inside.nasty damp smell.lampshade above Bed was dirty on the inside. One plus point was the bathroom was like brand new. The hotel should be ashamed of itself for expecting people to pay for this. I am considering sending them the bill I will have to pay for the chiropractor I need to sort out my back as the mattress was only fit for the tip. All in all ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE OF A ROOM got up early and couldn't wait to get home totally spoiled my 50th birthday.
A bit far to walk to the tower but tram stop outside. For the money it wasn't bad,£27 per night surprisingly the food was very good, we had the 3 course evening meal £13.50 each. Overall the place needs some money spent on it to up grade it, but with so much competition ie the many places to stay, is it worth it. It is what it is.
This hotel has the potential to be excellent however it's not.. It's dirty smelly and needs a lot of tidying up.. I had a 3 bed room with two towels one working light bulb and no remote for the tv.. The coffee in the room was basically coloured water although the shower was nice... Breakfast was horrible with Hitler big brother booking you in.. In a nutshell OK to sleep in but over priced and grotty
Large hotel family entertainment, swimming pool,small cinema. Breakfast is all you can eat for a fare price.rooms are basic that's why I have given it an average score,but you certainly get your money's worth from the facilities it offer's. If your taking children its worth it and they will love it.we have stayed a few times with our grandchildren and they always want to go back.
Where do I start?? I stayed here for two nights and that was too much for me. First entering the hotel you are greeted by dark dated décor and not so happy staff. This didn't bother me that much as it was a lads weekend away. The rooms were so cold and damp and dirty. Looks like they haven't cleaned the rooms in months. The smell in the rooms was disgusting. I couldn't see out off the window because of the dirt on them. The food was disgusting and entertainment was very poor. The only plus to this Hotel was the pool/sauna and steam room, Very basic but it was something to do to stay out of the rooms. The staff didn't seem to care about anything or anyone. Very big Hotel but it needs ALOT of work doing on it. I would honestly recommend for anyone not to visit this hotel.
We have just returned from a four days stay at the Norbreck Castle Hotel Blackpool, It was a National bus holiday staying at a mystery hotel of their choice, I have to admit when we found out where we were staying I was very worried, reading some of the reviews I didn't feel happy however what a surprise, our room looked like it had been refurbished, a new carpet fresh decor and a lovely new bathroom, fresh bedding and white soft towels, I relaxed, after all you are only in the room for a short while, if you are like us we were out and about every day. Our evening meal was lovely, soup each evening to start, a salad bar and three choices of main meal with plenty of veg, I couldn't count how many different cakes, with cream, were available for a sweet. The hotel was not busy so eating was a pleasure, no pushing or grabbing food when you could, the entertainment each evening, although very loud, was enjoyable once you moved further back. Trams and buses are right outside the hotel and quite frequent. It looks like the hotel is refurbishing, in places it is very tired ,there is still a lot to do but for the price we paid we did not expect a five star hotel, we were very pleasantly surprised and would happily go back. I would like to point out the staff on reception are very helpful if they can help they will.
Arrived at the Norbreck knowing it's an old hotel that is rather cheap so was prepared to make some exceptions. Firstly we were checked in very quickly by a friendly guy at reception. When we got to the room however it was pretty poor! Dirty carpet, a view of the swimming pool ventilation system and an aroma of chlorine.... No thanks! So I spoke to the same guy and reception and to be fair he was happy to put me in a considerably better room without question. Admittedly the hotel is showing its age it still does the job. I got a good comfortable sleep and the shower was good and hot with a nice bit of power. Cleaning standards were acceptable but not fantastic. Overall the hotel is unique and not bad for the price but it does need some loving. It's a lovely big building with lots of space, it's a shame its potential isn't being realised.
It wasn't as bad as some of the previous reviews said, my room was mostly clean, except for some dust and some stains at the top of the walls. but the bathroom was clean, bedding was all clean and fresh. The amenities where basic, the shower head holder couldn't be angled so the shower was pointing across the room instead of at me, so I had to hold it myself to use it. There is body wash and towels in the bathroom but no soap or shampoo, but I brought my own so this wasn't an issue for me. The furniture in the bedroom was dated and the desk drawers where falling off, but it was all usable there was a kettle in the room with tea and coffee (coffee was awful though) a hair dryer in the drawer and a few coat hangers in the wardrobe. Curtains where thick and didn't let too much light in. Bar prices where cheap for a hotel, food wasn't too badly priced either, there was a lot of litter outside but I was there for a convention and I can imagine trying to clean up after 3000 people who don't use a bin isn't easy. The free wifi only works in reception and no where else. Staff where friendly and polite, for the cost of this place it's okay, you get what you pay for.
255 - was disgusting and I have written a review before. - Why on earth Trip Advisor is still advertising this absolutely dirty horrible hotel I do not know. Holes you could jump through in the curtains, horrible outdated scratched furniture and dirty bathroom and windows. Are there any parts that are OK. In my mind NO. It needs closing down for major refurbishment. It does not rate even a 1 rating - if I could I would have said 0.
Initial impressions of the exterior was that it could do with a make over. However, the hotel itself proved to be slightly better. The reception area was large and staff processed guests quickly. Meals were of a reasonable standard and buffet style. The snack bar was great for coffee but the food was of a poor quality. Staff were keen to help and there was entertainment every night. Our room was comfortable and had the requested sea view. Nice relaxed stay.
