I just have to say that your hotel is one of the best we have stayed in.It was the little things that made all the difference. Hope to see you again soon
Just had to leave a note here to thank you for letting us stay - the bedroom was fantastic, breakfast really scrummy and we had a really great time. The welcome you gave us was the best we ever had and we felt like we'd known you for years. We'll definitely be back.Sandra and Mike

Well, had to settle back in at work again after our weekend stay with you over Easter, which was great, but suppose we must work to earn cash to come back! We will certainly pass on your good name to any of our friends.PS The gesture about our "British Summertime breakfast", was unexpected but welcomed. Thanks for the lie-in!! See you again.Cath & Steve.
Hi Doug, thanks for a lovely weekend, hope to get back next easter,
HI DOUG.I WILL BE STAYING WITH YOU NEXT WEEKEND (PART OF THE SHOOTING GROUP). I TRADE A LOT ON THE NET AND WONDER WHETHER THERE IS A PHONE POINT AVAILABLE WHERE I MIGHT PLUG IN MY LAPTOP FOR A FEW MINUTES EACH DAY TO DEAL WITH MY EMAILS. I CONNECT VIA AOL SO THERE WILL BE NO TELEPHONE CHARGES INCURRED.REGARDS,DAVE
This is the best hotel in Blackpool that we have stayed in, nice people, nice food and a lovely room. What more could you ask for!Thanks for a lovely stay Doug.Mark & DebbieWe will be back for more!
Hello Doug; thanks for making our 4 day break something to remember.The hospitality was as good as any 5 star hotel if not better, you will be highly recommended to all of our freinds, the food speaks for itself. Allan party of 4.
We had a lovely 3 day stay.The room was quiet, the bed was comfy and the breakfast beautifully cooked and swiftly served. We would visit again.
Hello from Canada to my future friends. I would first like to comment on your website, you have very nice pictures detailing the surroundings of the hotel and the interior as well. People like to see the rooms where they will be sleeping, so your virtual tour was an excellent marketing tool. Considering the amount of time and money you have put into your website, and from previous visitors comments I am sure our stay with you will be second to none. Looking forward to meeting with you all. Kindest regards Chloe
What a simply superb site, informative, entertaining and interesting - quite simply the best hotel site I've ever seen. Your hotel looks great too and I wish I'd known about it when I was in Blackpool in mid Jan 01. Just a question, how far in advance do you take bookings? I live in Melbourne, Australia and am toying with the idea of a holiday in England around Christmas of next year (ie Dec 2003).Rgds David Broom
Thank you and your staff for a superb weekend. Your service is second to none. I have never stayed in a place where nothing was too much trouble. You deserve the highest recommendation.
We had a marvellous time during our stay at the hotel. All 21 of us would like to say a BIG thankyou to Doug and his family for making Alex's birthday celebrations go with a bang! THANKS!!!!
Hi from Canada, My dream is to visit England some day and found your site when looking for hotels and B & B in GB. Your hotel is one I would love to visit one day.It looks beautiful.

Firstly a great website, very informative and interesting it really does have a personal feel about it. We had a great weekend in Blackpool at the beginning of Feb. Hotel great, friendly staff, made to feel very welcome from the minute we arrived. Breakfast out of this world. Its the little touches that make all the difference, complimentary coffee on arrival, free newspaper delivered to your room. We've already booked again for summer.

Great site, looking forward to our mini break away from the kids.Can you please save room 10 for 2 single girls in our party. Please have a big pig ready for breakfast as our ladies are very very very big
We, like all the other people, are looking for somewhere to stop over night in Blackpool and have checked out your web site, which is very impressive.we will log on again to reserve a family room.Great informative site!
Had great time w/end 11 jan-14 jan 2002, Bedroom was great food great too much for me to eat, next time in blackpool we will coming back to your hotel, also will tell all our friends to come to canasta, best of luck to your venture.
I've been looking through everyone elses 'boring' sites for hours now, and this one is by far the best!! A lot of hard work has gone into it, and it has definitely impressed me! I've just enquired as to room availability, so hopefully we will see you in June! Simon and Kathleen
Dear Mandy,We are really looking forward to our stay with you. Can I say that I am EXTREMELY impressed with your website! Having spent the whole morning looking for suitable accommodation, and having looked at dozens of websites, yours was by far the best.If the welcoming nature of your webpage and the efficiency of your booking system is anything to go by then you DESERVE to do well!Both myself and my colleague Keith Maton are really looking forward to the magic convention in Blackpool.There is one thing I did forget to ask you when I booked; We will spend most of our time away from the hotel at various shows and lectures.These are likely to go on until very late at night. Will there be any difficulty in gaining access to the hotel when we return???I can assure you that both Keith and myself will be 'model' guests!!!Once again many thanks for the friendly and efficient manner in which you have dealt with our booking.Yours sincerelyBrian Levy
We are looking forward very much to our weekend in early April. Very impressed with the Website. Our breakfast specialist reckons he can eat two! We will see! Kind Regards Terry Winfield
Hya Doug, Just a quick note to thank you for your hospitality and to say that everything exceeded expectations at your hotel. We will certainly be coming to stop with you again and will not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and relatives. Thanks again DerekDerek HullProduct Quality Assurance Manager Potterton Myson Ltd
Hi i have been looking at the different hotels in Blackpool for my family and friends to stay in the summer. Your website was really inviting and seemed very friendly,And i would love to hear if you do any discounts for large bookings. Hope to see you soon.
Just wanted to let you know the site is excellent. Keep popping on for updates of what you have done, it's great. Wishing you all the very best for the future. From Sue & also my mother Connie. Ex staff, Cheers to you!
Dear Dougie & Mandy We would like to thank you very much for making our stay at the Canasta very happy. We were impressed by the bedrooms, the welcome and the service we received from everyone. Once again, many thanks, Janice, Christine, Karen, Kathleen, Jeanette and Moira
Thanks Doug and Mandy for a great weekend. I was VERY surprised to learn that you are new owners and that you hadn't owned a hotel previously. Your attention to detail and willingness to look after our party was very welcoming and not what we usually encounter when visiting Blackpool. I do hope this attribute stays with you as you have a great hotel. The breakfast was, indeed, a mighty feast!! We will definitely be back!!!!
Congratulations to the Smith Family! I hope your new venture will be a great success.The Hotel looks BRILLANT. Good Luck, and All The Very Best CE.
The virtual tour outside the front of your hotel is great!!
