Booked up for a family weekend. The hotel needs an update the room was really rough around the edges. Also our shower never worked for the duration of our stay. I reported the issue but sadly apparently the plumber could not make it. No offer to switch rooms or even use another. Very hard to keep clean a family of...

We were planning a trip for us the young children and both mothers-in-law. Last stayed here in 1977 and glad we stayed again. Great location, quiet section but couple of minutes' walk to the action, tram stop outside, staff super friendly and helpful, great breakfast and very good value. It's not flash but it's welcoming and happy. If you enjoy...

The view was nice from our room on the front of the hotel and the bed and pillows were comfy. I agree with previous reviews that the rooms do need some work on them especially the shower stall. Also there was no toothbrush holder or mug in the bathrooms in both rooms that we booked. When we booked our room...

This was our first visit to Blackpool as a family, and having visited previously myself many years ago with friends, I was a little sceptical as to the best place to stay. After some in depth research we chose The Waldorf for being a family friendly (non stag or hen groups) hotel located at the quieter end of the promenade....

Staying at the Waldorf at the moment and absolutely enjoying it. The staff are friendly and more than helpful. The breakfast is well presented with a great choice, an all you can eat full English is available to order, juices, cereals, fruit etc... Even off menu ordering. Although the area the Waldorf is a little run down they are redeveloping...

Had a fabulous stay at the Waldorf, Tom and Steve made us very welcome. The rooms are clean and comfortable, we all had a good night's sleep. The breakfast cooked by Nancy was delicious and they couldn't do enough to make us happy. Will definitely be back.

We stayed here as a family of four, the area this hotel is located in is run down at best, a bit scary at worst. Parking is either on the street, which is free or around the back of the hotel on a very small car park. The Waldorf is sandwiched between boarded up hotels, in various states of disrepair....

Sadly a few Hotels have closed around the Waldorf not helping the appeal of the Area but you are just on the main promanade. We were not looking for a Hotel out of this world when booking.
