"A great place to stay. "

Overall Hotel Rating:

Excellent

Open quote

Before I come to write my review I would like to make a few things clear. Firstly I've noticed quite a few of the reviews left on this site seem to have been left by people who seem to have a personal grudge against the owner Carole rather than people who have actually stayed at this establishment. I am of the belief that such attacks have no place on a website such as this and find it disgusting that the moderators on this site have allowed this to continue.

On a positive note , I would like to say that our weekend in Blackpool at The Croft was fantastic. Carol is a great host and a wonderful person who made our stay in Blackpool (our first) a memorable and fun one and we will certainly be returning.

"Oh My Fat God"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Good

Very good at first. Then I stepped inside the hotel, I really thought the big fat whore of a landlady was going to eat me, Luckily i escaped un-munched, I had to run down the street and get her some steak and chips tho just so she did not eat me, After that tho, it was fantastic, really really enjoyed myself.. I'll just make sure i bring along some food for that big fat lady, Can't remember her name.

"RUBBISH"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Poor

Open quote

I thought this hotel was the worst hotel ever in the world, the owners, i don't think they wash ever they stunk so much, The rats were cute tho and the spiders were a bit scary and the flies did my head in but we got over that, the breakfast was half gone when she served me it, she said she got hungry on the way to give it me and apologized then burped really loud in my face, so other then that it was fantastic

"interesting, will not return"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Poor

Open quote

I was one of the people who stayed a few weeks ago and feel compelled to review following the hotels reply.

I have to be honest, I am amazed with the reply back from the Hotel. There were only 16 people at the hotel at the time of the theft, with twelve from our group, the two owners, another guest who was with our group and another staff member... 3 phones and over £100 in money was stolen... and the hotel managers tried to claim it was one of our own group!

Even the police who knew it was - as this person had previous.

There was no 'Violence', The person who had things stolen, including a work phone and he was meant to be on call, was so frustrated with the situation, that the lad who had bene on the rob was being hidden out of sight and allowing the managers take the brunt of the frustration, which isn't fair.

Lets not beat around the bush, they are trying hard to make this place attractive but everywhere smells of smoke, the beds are uncomfortable and of poor quality, the carpet is stained and dirty and it is cheap and nasty - but it does a job for a cheap weekend or if you're into mature swinging.

The most ironic part of the hotel - was a sign saying ' arrive a stranger, leave a friend ' --- more like, 'arrive a stranger, be glad to leave'

enjoy staying here if you decide to go here. good luck.!

"BEWARE...."

Overall Hotel Rating:

Poor

Open quote

Turned up on the Friday afternoon after a 7 hour bus trip... to be fair, George was good as gold and showed us to the rooms / opened the bar etc...

The rooms were horrible, everything smelt of cigs (i've had to wash all my clothes since I came home), but for the price i suppose you get what you pay for.

Initial thoughts were the place was ok... but then the fun began.

when we arrived back, only 16 people in the 'hotel'... 12 in our group... and then three phones and money from wallets are stolen... it was obvious who it was but I will not post on here who.

we thought we were having breakfast on the Saturday but it seems they didn't have 'supplies in'.. lovely.

George is sound, but the rest of the staff there need to choose a different profession - horrible. Also - i think there was a swingers convention taking place on the Saturday! all a bit weird.

if you want a cheap and nasty stay - go for it. i'd rather spent a few quid more for a travelodge!
