Doric Hotel Queens Promenade Blackpool Reviews
Can you guess why we wanted to stay in the Doric Hotel! Ideally situated on the Queens Promenade in Blackpool we couldn't resist staying in this Blackpool accommodation just because of the name. Below is our review:
To break our trip back to Aberdeen up we decided to visit Blackpool and were happy to find The Doric Hotel on Trip Advisor. During our stay we could see why it was getting so many great reviews. It simply is a great place to stay. All the staff were friendly, helpful and fun, especially on bingo night. The food was plentiful and ever so tasty. We particularly enjoyed the anticipation of what the breakfast special each morning was. A kettle and plentiful milk, biscuits tea and coffee are in the bedrooms.
Everywhere was spotless and the rooms are spacious, ours had a fantastic sea-view, and their beach is as golden as Aberdeen's. We had a large en-suite room with a sizeable walk in shower and the toiletries had a great smell. The towels were lovely and fluffy and the bedding comfy. There is a lift to all floors for disabled guests.
A sizeable car park can be found on the front and side and there is also free parking in the nearby street. The tram stop is just outside and this took us to tourist attractions such as the Zoo, Tower, Madame Tussauds and Sea Life, so we left the car safely in their car park for three days. For those missing our Beach Boulevard Harry Ramsden's, have no fear, there is a super one by the Tower and for the cannie Aberdonian - they offer free chip refills!
Sadly none of the staff knew why it is called the Doric Hotel, but if you do then please let us know. Perhaps more to do with Greek Doric Columns, rather than the North East of Scotland dialect.
We plan a return visit the next time I am in England to research my novels and we look forward to enjoying their hospitality again, with a visit to the Star Trek exhibition and the Illuminations top of our list.
