  • Older travelers

    Breakfast, free parking, location, friendly owner.

    frosted glass in all windows, creaking floor boards, fitted bed sheets to small for bed, windows need up dating.

  • Family with children

    Friendly staff, clean and in a great situation on the promenade.

    no lifts

  • Family with children

    Hotel was ideal location becky owners daughter was lovely girl made you so welcome and staff bent over backwards to please you and kids were welcome we had a family room with sea view fantastic had tv coffee tea and small extras to welcome you well worth the money great value for money breakfast was well cateried for and not self service was good plenty of choice bar prices were reasonable too and had kids juice lovely lounge

    Ower room was fine no complaints this is only a coment to maybe make it more desirable shower tiles some were cracked could be replaced which would refine room other wise excellant

  • Family with children

    Great location good room with sea view friendly staff would recommend

  • Older travelers

    easy to find, on site parking, very, friendly & helpfull owners,good, clean, comfortable, quiet room, nice food. nice bar with entertainment, sea & illumination'S view, reasonable prices

    no lift

  • Family with children

    Staff and owners took time out to mix with the residents, the bedroom was large, clean, warm and had a decent size shower, there was a good selection for breakfast and the food was good. Bar prices were reasonable, but would have preferred a second choice lager!. Car parking was available at the hotel and free. We would definitely book in at the Athol Hotel again.

    we were put on the second and third floor which was difficult with a baby and 2 year old.....however we were late booking. You could only watch TV if you layed on one side of the double bed due to the fixed wardrobe obstructing it.

  • Family with children

    Very warm welcome with a very helpfull staff .Room was clean and tidy with towels,tea and coffee.Good location on the seafront also had offroad parking.Breakfast was very good more than enought for everyone.Would return again for longer stay.

  • Older travelers

    it was clean friendly and and in an ideal location

    breakfast was 9am prompt could have been more flexable

  • Older travelers

    having been a regular visiter to Blackpool over 30 years, and stopping at many hotels in Blackpool, I found the Atol Hotel the best kept sercret in Blackpool, value for money, proffessinaly run,amazing service nothing too much trouble,service with a smile, honest,clean and comfortable accomadation and the owners and staff, are wonderful and very helpful in where you can go,where you can eat ect

  • Group of friends

    We were met with a very warm welcome by the owner. The Hotel is perfect location on the sea front near tram stops and easy access to all of Blackpool. breakfast was super and served by friendly staff. The bedrooms extremely clean and comfortable loved the little mars bar on the pillow nice little touch would definately return and recommend Hotel Athol.

    there was nothing to not to like at this hotel.

  • Family with children

    seafront location

    room standard was poor,handles missing from drawers (screws left exposed) broken,sharp edged toilet bowl, in a family room with young children!.Matress very uncomfortable, room 8a, avoid! Bar prices high, 90p for a packet of crisps, so you can imagine the price of a beer!. Needless to say We won't be returning.

  • Couple

    The room was really clean and comfortable. The facilities were really good. We enjoyed the lovely breakfast that was given it was a good start to the day. The staff were all friendly and I look forward to book this hotel in the future. :)

  • Family with children

    The price and location

    Not family / child friendly. The reception is a bar. You have to walk through the bar to get to rooms. Breakfast is served at 9 and is finished for 9.40 and you are expected to check out by 10. Room was very small for a family room and wasn't very clean. There was a lot of dirt everywhere other than the main part of the floor. The reception / bar also want your car keys so they can move your car if required. Very old fashioned and hasn't been decorated for decades.

  • Older travelers

    The location on the prom is a real plus for this hotel. Inside was warm clean and had a friendly atmosphere. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The dining room was nicely set out and very organized. There is limited parking to the front of the hotel. We would definatley stay there again.

  • Couple

    Friendly staff, lovely cooked breakfast, different choices also available,free wifi in my room,bar in reception, parking at the front of the hotel,freeview tv in the room. Everywhere was clean and tidy, towels supplied and shampoo and shower gel. Bed was very comfy, the bedding could of done with an update and some of the sheets were too small for the bed.

    Room was very small, one window but you couldn't see out of it because it had etched glass in making it impossible to see out of, shower was very small,very claustrophobic,water was very hot couldn't alter the temperature,room was dated,in need of some decor. Check out time10am far too early, breakfast was at 9am every morning far too early. Evening meals are normally available but the weekend we stayed they weren't doing them and we didn't find this out till we had booked the room, bit of a pain trying to find somewhere to eat and obviously cost a lot more.
