Hotel was not in as good condition as previous BW Hotels that I have stayed in, I suspect due to recovering from Covid closure. Carpet looked very dirty and I made sure that I always had shoes on - other than in bed. Staff pleasant and helpful, but problems not fixed. The room windows opened onto a busy local cut through with lots of noise, people, road traffic and service vehicles. No net curtains, so either full curtains closed or none at all. The top windows which I could not reach, were all fully open and I could not close them resulting in the curtain being blown away from the frame when it was windy, which was every night. Mentioned problem to reception but nothing done so was very cold on bed. Room costs over 4 days were £100 more than associates that booked the same as I room type and dates. Lesson learned - do not book direct through BW! Breakfast was restricted in choice and making toast took ages, the restaurant had a Specials sheet which remained the same over 5 days. Car parking free with booking and outside the front door so very secure. I did not notice any staff eearing masks but plenty of sanitiser. I have stayed in far better BW hotels and was willing to pay the premium to stay here but money not wisely spent. This is an annual stay but will not be here again, a pity.

Very helpful gentleman on reception. Bedroom very dark but basic, no hot water from shower. Breakfast really nice and only £5.00 to park the car for one night. Might stay again if its only for one night.

dirty lift and corridors - room not cleaned properly - only hot water in the shower or cold water in the bath mixer did not work - tiny room with no room either side of the double bed - not to be touched with a bargepole!

I booked a room Superior King Room – Mobility Accessible for my parents in the Best Western Carlton Hotel Blackpool. My Mum is in a wheelchair and it is the first time she has been well enough to have a short break in years. On arriving at the hotel they were upset to find that although the room did have wide doors and an accessible bathroom that is where the accessible part of the room ended. The bed was so large that there was no room to get the wheelchair up the side of the bed and the rest of the room was so small that once you were in with a wheelchair there was not enough room to turn it round. My Dad immediately went and spoke to a manager only to be told that they were fully booked and that there was nothing he could do. I live just around the corner from the hotel (in a top flat which is why they were not staying with me) so when I went to see them I pushed the bed right up to one side so that we could get the wheelchair up the other side, this meant that my 80 year old Dad had to climb into bed from the bottom. Had my parents been there alone they would have had to come home as they could not have managed without my help. I have obviously complained to the hotel but were told that the room met the definition of “accessible” and that the access point to the bed is not a requirement. They also said “Had someone spoken with the team, we would have moved the bed and certainly do not expect you to have done this.” As previously stated my Dad spoke to the manager who was no help at all. The hotel itself is nice enough but I just wanted to make people aware that if you are booking an accessible room it may not be accessible.

At present staying in the hotel, very friendly staff and spotlessly clean environment . The room is fairly small but again it is spotlessly clean as is the bathroom. Only problem is that for a disabled person, it is an obstacle course, there is a lift but after exiting it , you have to walk to your room up and down stairs along the corridors. So if you are fit and able, an excellent hotel but if disabled avoid, although the staff are quite sympathetic towards your plight
