se·lect adj \sə-ˈlekt\
(of a group of people or things) carefully chosen from a larger number as being the best or most valuable:
(of a place or group of people) only used by or consisting of a wealthy or sophisticated elite; exclusive: the play was seen by a small and highly select audience.
"Select" who too! Edna, the Inebriate Woman? "Cheap and not so cheerful" would have been a better and more accurate description for the place. However, I couldn't find fault with it's cleanliness nor the staff, who were extremely efficient and very pleasant. It's such a shame that the place hasn't been decorated since Cliff Richard was number 1 in the charts with "Congratulations".
The Anne Frank Suite
Slumming it for one night only! My bed was the one against the wall, see where the duvet is all crumpled, that's where I collapsed in a fit of hysterical laughter. The bathroom was about 5 foot square with an avocado coloured sink, shower unit and a toilet, no bidet! If you wanted a bidet you'd have to do a handstand in the shower!
Go back a few streets from the promenade and you get to see the real Cackpool, it's not for the faint hearted! My only regret is that I didn't take my camera out with me in the evening. I saw a woman from a hen party bacchanal, wearing a wedding dress, squat down and urinated in the street! We never saw Kate Middleton do that at her hen do. Did we?
An arty little boutique.

Gastronomic pleasures is reason enough to visit Blackpool. I had the baked potato with beans and cheese it was delivered to our table with a cheery "There you go, Duck" the Blackpool equivalent to "Bon Appetite. I didn't fancy dinner at the hotel because it meant sharing a table with strangers. We went for an Indian instead.
The two and half hours we had visiting Liverpool isn't worth mentioning.
This is the moment when Tracy whips off Dorian's wig!
"A warm welcome back to the highly successful Birds of a Feather, one of BBC TV’s most popular and friendly sitcoms, as we catch up with Sharon, Tracy and Dorian as they reunite for this fantastic new theatre show in Blackpool. With time to discover the many attractions of Blackpool and quality hotel accommodation, a wonderful two day break is assured."
