Definitely not 3 stars
Overall it was a fairly disappointing stay in Blackpool, if we weren't there to go to a music festival we would have left immediately.
Although this hotel was fairly cheap we found it to be well below standards we expected of a 3 star hotel. Our room was very dingy with only one very small window, the roof leaks and the bathroom smells of mould, the decor is outdated, every room has the same key so anyone can access your room if they liked, and during our stay the Lancashire water was contaminated and never once did a member of staff tell us - we actually got told this by other people we met holidaying in Blackpool. However every time we did speak to the staff they were quite friendly and helpful so I do feel bad making so many complaints, but we are paying customers and if we knew of the quality of the hotel we would have chosen to stay elsewhere.
