My wife and I were lucky enough to get a last minute booking for August Bank Holiday , and we were so glad we chose the Canasta. Doug and staff brilliant,Interior room was comfortable with everything we needed.Big Brekkie is just that, took me 2 days to realise I could ask for a smaller one ( could have been the hangover).Bar prices are good and hours are ideal for those who don't want to venture into town but still want a good night.Close to our usual night spots, a fantastic view from lounge with your own section of Illuminations outside which were on during our stay (BONUS),Tram and bus stop a short stroll away. For a closer sea view there is a comfy bench just across the road. We loved it , in fact we have just booked another trip. Thank You To all the team. See you soon .

The drip trays in the bar never seem to get emptied or even washed at the end of each night, the floor never gets swept or mopped at the end of each night either...come on guys, all you seem interested in is counting the money at the end of the night, you lack of hygiene in the bar area leave little to the imagination considering all can been seen on your webcam!!!

Rose you numpty ...the webcam's resolution is quite poor. You can't exactly see how dirty (or clean) the drip trays are. Ive left you a note....see if you can find it 🙂

Hi Doug And Mandy sorry it's took a while to leave a review, But there isn't much to say really the surprise 50th at the Canasta was more than expected. You all seem to go that one step further every year we come. Any more steps further and you'll be on the beach lol . Milky bar kid was absolutely a superb touch making an appearance on both nights. The cake from Mandy well WOW BRILLIANT. Everything is always spot on the entertainment Tim James was a very nice and special touch for my birthday . If I had to pick a fault well to be honest it would be and it's only a little one is that BASIL never sang shine it's normally standard procedure for this to be sung but BASIL Let me down on that lol. So don't keep up the good work just carry on like you are doing week in week out. OH AND GET SOME RADIO MICS rather than the wires it's like doing the maypole with them lol lol lol see ya soon old boy

We stayed at the Canasta on Saturday 23rd July. The staff are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. My aunt and uncle came down to the hotel to have a drink with us and they too were made very welcome. The karaoke was great fun on the evening. The breakfast is to die for and there are good choices. There's free tea and coffee all day too. The only thing that was a down side is that our room was way too hot. It maybe could have benefited from a fan, especially in the summer. Thanks to all for a lovely stay.

Thanks Emma for the great review. We have should have asked. They should be in all rooms but sometimes we forget to replace them when cleaning them. It was sweltering outside also 🙂

Been coming to this Hotel for 9 years and will not go anywhere else. Doug, Mandy and Dan provide a warm atmosphere with great customer service, thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the new addition Gavin the barman is a great asset he is funny, doesn't take himself to seiously and does a really mean tune on the Karaoke. We have had a great 4 Night break which is no surprise at the canasta as Doug and Mandy make sure everybody has a good time. Thanks again to you all will be back next year!!

Aww thanks muchky Steve and Pat for your continued business. Gavlaaar is ace

Just spent the last 4 nights here. Great location and would recommend to anyone visiting Blackpool. Always a warm welcome by the staff and a lovely cup of tea when you entered the hotel. A massive breakfast which kept us going til tea time! The rooms adequate, comfortable and clean. Thank you for a lovely stay. We will return!
