We have been going to the Doric for over 10 years for weekend breaks, as always the staff, food and rooms were A1. But the entertainment is a big let down, there were more people in the bar than in the main room it was a let down.

We arrived to be greeted by very efficient reception staff, they sorted our room and parking within minutes. Although the hotel is old it is spotlessly clean, the bedroom and bathroom a real credit and thick snowy white towels, we've stayed in 5star that haven't been as good. Now the food was tasty, hot and served by great waiting staff... More

The room was beautifully set out for us, the food was excellent, the service was brilliant and, all in all, everyone enjoyed the occasion. Many thanks to Jason, Mitch and the team - they're all so efficient, friendly and... More

We stayed at the Doric hotel when we went to Blackpool for the illuminations. The hotel is situated past the north pier towards Bispham. The room we stayed in was a little tired looking, but the bar areas and dining areas were very pleasantly decorated with comfortable seating. We only booked bed and breakfast so cannot really comment on the... More

stayed at the Doric again to attend events at the Winter Gardens. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly and it was nice to see James back at the Doric :) I have yet to stay in one of the refurbished rooms but the room I had was clean and serviceable.
