After staying at the gr8 escape twice before and having a fab stay i new gr8 escape was cheap and the one to book again!! I looked up the number and booked up directly with paul and steph within minutes i was sorted for my holidays with my family what made it even easier was that i could get a room with a double bed and 3 singles and en-suite PERFECT!!! Fab people fab breakfast and made me and partner and children more than welcome!!!! THANKS GUYS SEE YOU AGAIN!!!!! :) Laura, Chris and kids :) xxx.
arrived Friday night about half seven after being in traffic for what must have been hours to be greeted by Steph and Paul. As we had planned the weekend for a 40th birthday we had taken balloons and banners which we were going to put in the room for the birthday girl as a surprise, we had already lost hours of valuable drinking time stuck in traffic so Paul and Steph to the rescue decided while we were getting ready to trim the bar area. Breakfast the next morning was just what the doctor ordered to line the stomachs for the next session, Steph didn't even bat an eye lid when we all poled down with the night befores makeup and pjs on. The service was excellent and cheap, you can definitely see why people go back time and time again which we will do.....only one request for next time we stay, can we please have a gadder on arrival cause the seagulls are not necessary early morning with a raging hangover:) Thanks guys you go that extra mile to give your customers an excellent service!!!.
Been here several times:
I'm a regular visitor to Blackpool and when I stay overnight, I always check in here. Paul and Steph are very friendly people, excellent cheap rates for rooms, gorgeous breakfasts, lovely clean rooms and it's central location means everything is within walking distance. Can't recommend it enough.
Another brill weekend:
fantastic place to stay, close to everything. clean and very friendly. i would recommend staying here anytime of the year. weather its with family or friends its the place to stay.
We came on 15th Sep 2012 for a hen night, party of 14. Hosts were very pleasant, and made every effort to welcome us, and give us information about where to go. They also gave us a VIP card for free as long as we gave it back before we left. Rooms were very basic but cheap and clean. Breakfast was excellent. Would recommend to hen and stag parties.
Stag weekend in Blackpool:
We were a party of 13 for a stag weekend and had heard a lot about the Gr8 Escape Hotel. Booking was made very easy by Paul and he always kept in contact when we needed to ask a question. We arrived on the Friday and within minutes we were in our rooms. Steph & Paul were great, they were very relaxed and only had a couple of rules. They gave us VIP Cards to get free entry to some of the pubs. The breakfasts were amazing and was served between 8:30 - 9:30 which was a good idea so that people weren't spending all their time in bed and missing out on Blackpool. Thomas The Jack Russell was great entertainment. He was harmless and well trained, he would sit at the window and wait for his girlfriend 'Coco' to go by. The hotel was always clean and tidy. If I was to go back to Blackpool I would check the availability of The Gr8 Escape Hotel.
Excellent all round:
Stayed at the gr8 escape this bank holiday weekend with my girlfriend and feel I need to leave a review to say thanks to Steph and Paul for a very welcoming stay. We were greeted on arrival and made sure of a parking space. There is also a bar in house as well which is useful. The rooms are ok and very well priced very clean throughout. I have given this 5 stars throughout as it's the best place I've stayed b&b in Blackpool :-).
Cheap hotel Gr8 people gr8 brekkie gr8 escape:
Stayed at the Gr8 Escape Hotel many times! The owners are awesome and very welcoming, they will assist you with whatever you need, all you have to do it ask. The brekkie is delicious a good ol' fashioned fry up!. Steph and Paul both make you feel very welcome and make a damn good cuppa! The bar is nicely decorated, has comfortable seating and the drinks prices are a lot cheaper than town. The bedrooms are clean and comfy with teas and coffee facilities in the rooms. Always had a positive experience whenever i have stayed (over 10 times) and even though i now live in Canada i always go back for a visit on my return trips back to UK.
