I have just spent a long weekend here and have to say the hotel is great. Because we have a family of 5 it's harder to get a room that will accommodate all of us but the room we had was a good size. It was very clean and the beds were comfy. The breakfast was fab, didn't look that...

Location of this hotel is fine and its a very clean place with very friendly owners. The breakfast (not included in the price, was basic. Orange juice was warm and a single rasher of almost cooked bacon. Id not recommend this hotel but neither would I say you shouldn't go there. Our major complaint really is that the hotel signage...

Were do I start this hotel is nice and big and very clean. The hotel owners moe and jimmy are a lovely and caring couple. The breakfast is lovely and is right over from the beach amusements and the swimming pool! It's 5 minutes away from the pleasure beach. Would defiantly recommend this wonderful place!😊

We booked this hotel as it is well located; walking distance to the station (blackpool south) and right on the beach, opposite the South pier. The room was large, airy and, as requested, at the back of the hotel, so quiet. We therefore didn't have a sea view, but also didn't have any noise from the road/pier/seafront. Bathroom small but...

Thank you so much for your very positive review...we are glad you had a good time here at the sands and yes we are in a prime location so we are very lucky. Our sea view rooms are well sought after due to the views but can be a bit noisier during the season so the back rooms are asked...

The hotel is ideally placed for sea views and access to the trams. The bathroom is tiny but houses all one could need. Included face wipes as well as the little soaps was a very nice touch, although some shampoo would have been nice (I was travelling very light...). The breakfast was excellent, a great start to the day.
