DIRTY HOTEL

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 20, 2014

Stayed here a couple of years ago and it was a dump thought id give it another try on the 5th of aug 2014 thinking it may have improved its got worse took my girlfriend and 15 month old daughter arrived at room to find stains all over the bed sheets thick dust on the wardrobe and even the tv was full of dust so told the cleaner the room hasn't been cleaned we came back a couple of hours later and all they had done was change the bottom sheet cleaners are lazy staff about as miserable as the hotel was thinking of ***ting on the floor might have cheered the place up a bit DONT STAY HERE YOU WILL REGRET IT

I have stayed at the norbreck castle twice in the last three years with National Holidays. Yes it is a little threadbare in places and does need a little updating but its a base to sleep not to spend your full time there. I am under 25 which is young to say i go away with National Holidays, but its the cheap deal that attracts me. Don't listen to all the horror stories your reading on here, i simply believe they must of stayed inside the hotel their full holiday.

Unique Quality: close to the beach, free pool, all you can eat style breakfast/dinner.

I HAD TO LEAVE

I was staying at the Savoy hotel 1 mile down the road, there was a problem with the power in the hotel and we got moved to the Norbreck, what a dump. The receptioist blanked me on arrival and it didnt get any better. Having walked what it felt like a mile to the room i was given, we opened the room door, what a shock dirty room maked and damage funiture and wallpaper coming away from the wall, the bathroom was the last straw dirty toilet that had not been cleaned damp and mold in the shower / bath. i had to leave i wast prepared to stay the night in the filth. avoid this hotel its a dump!

Unique Quality: none

We visited as part of a National Holidays inclusive weekend for the Illuminations in October 2010. This is a large hotel with over 400 rooms - it has a cinema showing newish films, a ballroom, cabaret each night, health centre with gym and a very good swimming pool and it is huge. Its also ugly and basic. However renovation is underway and Britannia Hotels now own the hotel. There is an air of change about the place and the staff for example cannot be faulted - the restaurant has all the ambience of a holiday camp dining room but the food cannot be faulted and the menu at the serve yourself counters is impressive.
The rooms are slowly getting makeovers but ours was straight out of the 1960s although the bed was very good and the standard of cleanliness good.
The clientele is mainly the over 60s on organised tours but if you are on a budget and do not want to stay in the town centre but in a pleasant residential area on the seafront this may be for you.

Directions: Just north of Bispham on Queens Promenade. Take a tram to the Norbreck stop.

HOTEL HELL

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 23, 2006

anyone who actually pays to stay in this place needs their head examined. It is the biggest hole!!! They wouldnt know what the word clean is, we had to pick old chewing gum off our windows and seats, the drawers stunk so we could not put anything in there. The rooms are so small you can touch either side while standing, the reception staff were the rudest people we have ever met. We were continually asking for clean towelsetc. our rooms were not cleaned until 3-4pm and then they were only vacumed maybe every third day if we were lucky! We changed rooms 4 times because of various problems. If our stay had not been prepaid and our son was not in the world 8ball comp we would have been out of there in a flash!! Most every body else had the same problems and felt the same way. I would not even give it a rating. Shame on you Norbreck for actually charging people to stay at your hotel, now I know why you were featured on "hotels from hell". Believe me we lived it!!!

Unique Quality: NONE

WE HAD TO WAIT IN A QUEE FOR 40MINS TO CHECK IN.THE PUBLIC ROOMS ARE OK BUT OTHER AREAS INCLUDING BED ROOMS ARE IN NEED OF A MAJOR RE-FURB.THIS IS A HUGE HOTEL AND MILLIONS NEED TO BE SPENT TO BRING IT ANYWHERE NEAR A 3 STAR RATEING. WE COULD NOT AJUST THE HEATING IN OUR ROOM AND THE WINDOW WOULD NOT OPEN IT WA LIKE A SAUNA.

Unique Quality: SEAVIEWS FROM SOME ROOMS.

Directions: ON SEAFRONT ABOUT 2-3 MILES FROM CENTER OF TOWN.
