Thank you for a great break, I do not understand the people who knock this Hotel it is fantastic. Doug and Mandy do everything they can to ensure you have a great time. The rooms are clean, with enough room to move around in comfort. The staff always with a smile on there faces are willing to go the extra mile that makes the difference between a good hotel and a great hotel, The CANASTA IS A GREAT HOTEL simple as that, nothing more can be said. Thanks again to all we had a great time much due to your efforts. Best wishes steve & Pat

Me and my partner emma stayed on 26th may for a two night break in a double sea view room, check in was at 2.30pm However we arrived at 12pm (so thought we would have a wait until the room was ready) as soon as we walked in we was greeted by a smiley face who quickly offered a tea or coffee. We had the coffee that was just perfect overlook the sea in the sun lounge. after about 5 minutes the owner came over and basicly told us the room was ready. We took the lift (this was very handy) to the top floor and entered the room. It was very clean and fresh smelling with fresh bedding ect. Then we entered the en suite shower bathroom. the shower its self was slightly out dated But still did a good job and was hot, The bit i found most interesting was the toilet, because there was like a sachet on it that said ( Sanatised for your saftey) and the fact that it was sealed. The bedding was clean and fresh and the bed was just right. The Breakfast, Was quality, plentyfull and very filling with a wide selection to choose from. The entertainment was just as good the kareoke was good fun with a wide range of songs. We even took the dogs for a walk this was also very good. And even on the last day when we (checked out) we left our luggage at the hotel and the staff called a taxi fore us. there was a well stocked good priced bar available and free tea and coffee all day. THE ONLY DOWN SIDE, was the weather it was just far far to hot but can hardly blame that on the hotel, Other then that it was very very good can see why they got hotel of the year. Thanks to everyone for a lovely stay will recommend and will be back soon. Paul And Emma

we would rate this Hotel a 5* stayed here 10th / 11th April 2012. Mandy & Doug & all their staff are so friendly & all go out there way to help you in any way they can...This Hotel is warm, comfortable, clean & very homely, smelt very fresh & all deco is bright & cheerful. As for the Breakfast very nicely presented & loads to eat, (Belly Busting Breakfasts) Nice sea front location with only a nice 5 min stroll to the centre / Tower & Attractions. We would definatly stay here again & already pr booked for June. We would also highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Nothing is to much for Mandy or Doug, they spend time with everyone oh forgot to say the Tea is great & yes they warm the pot & cups before serving it to you, we had Tea Bellys lol. Thanks for making our two nights break a great one & thanks so much for spending so much time with A.J... MANDY we got towel swans everywhere in our house now A.J keeps making them πŸ™‚ Big Hugs all round c u all soon. X

We have just returned from our 5th visit to this fab hotel. We stayed for 2 nights in a family room on a Friday and Sat night. As usual the rooms were very clean and very comfortable. ALL staff in this hotel are helpful, friendly and nothing is ever too much trouble. Our TV would not switch on and within 15 minutes of letting them know, it was fixed- im not sure some of the 6* hotels in Dubai could beat that time! We enjoy the karaoke and stayed for this both nights which is always a good laugh where all guests are included and made to feel 100% welcome. Our children had their birthdays whilst we were there, and the owner Mandy got them balloons, presents and even a little cake for them to blow out the candles! What a thoughtful and kind gesture that me and my husband were just so overwhelmed by. Children are made to feel welcome both in the evening, and catered for at breakfast time by the wonderful team of friendly,hard working and helpful waitresses. The Breakfasts are delicious and I was full for the rest of the day! Nicest Hotel breakfast I have ever had that just seems to get better every time we visit! We are already planning to return again next year, we would never stay anywhere else in Blackpool. This is the number one place to stay there, the awards behind reception prove this! Thanks again for a brilliant weekend.
