I have been staying at Craig y don hotel for years,this was first time for turkey and tinsel, All I can say is what a fantastic week food was very good quality and plenty of choice, All staff were friendly and helpful,couldn’t do enough to make your stay comfortable and pleasant. Kieth in dining room was the most pleasant and welcoming person you could ever have the pleasure to meet Entertainment was amazing and thourouly made my week,especially Bonnie le Blue, What an excellent act,which received a standing ovation at end of act. Which was very well deserved,and should be proud of the person they have become. Craig y don, have a class act in Bonnie, Neil on reception is a credit to hotel he puts every effort into making each guest feel welcome,and an absolute gent The hotel should be proud of all their staff, and standards they have achieved Will be back next year

We had our 3rd stay this year at the Craig y Don. We cannot recommend the hotel and tge hardworking friendly team enough. We feel you arrive as guests, stay as friends and leave as extended family. From the housekeeping team Mel and Damien who kept everything spotless but always have time to say hello and make sure you have everything you need to the fab dining room staff especially Marcus and Corey who cannot do enough to ensure meal times run smoothly we cannot fault a think. But imagine our surprise on this visit to find our old friend Keith (pic below) is now a member of the team. We are sure he will be an asset here. Of course we have to mention Tim and the captain of the ship Neil. Everyone works so hard The entertainment was fantastic with jason Stewart and Shirley our favourites. we would highly recommend the hotel to anyone looking to stay on the sea front in Blackpool and cannot wait for our next trip already! Karen and Delfryn Jones
