A man has slammed a Blackpool hotel he described as a ‘prison’ after visiting for his birthday.

The man booked a stay at Norbreck Castle Hotel, on Queen’s Promenade, with his family earlier this month.

He was ‘not happy’ following his visit and claimed he wouldn’t be ‘coming to this prison again’.

Beer tasting like ‘water’ was just one of the things he complained about, as well as insisting the hotel needed ‘the ghost busters’.

He reported hearing noises on the ceiling and in the toilet at 2am in the morning, as well as ‘someone standing by your door trying to get in’.

‘David C’ took to Tripdvisor to share his experience at the seaside hotel.

His review, titled ‘Was my Birthday at this rubbish hotel keep well away’, said: “Not happy with this hotel. Rooms smell of damp, hallways smell mouldy. Don’t go if you have asthma.

“Beds are uncomfortable also this place needs the ghosts busters as well, 2am something running on ceilings, toilets make noises also someone standing by [your] doors trying to get in. What a cr*phole.

“No games room open which is misleading one of the staff told me there’s also weird people what goes to this hotel standing by doors at night.

“Very old fashioned in the bedrooms it’s not a good place to book for your birthday. Won’t be coming to this prison again.

“Very haunted as well so people who reading save your money and keep well away from this hotel.”

There is no evidence to suggest the hotel is ‘haunted’, but there have been reviews posted on Tripadvisor previously also reporting some ‘supernatural’ occurrences.
