"Firstly - don’t be confused! These reviews don’t differentiate between Mode in St. Anne’s and Mode Lytham. So this is my review of the Lytham hotel. There are plus and minus’s but given that by being in the nice village of Lytham with plenty to do and lots of places to eat (even during covid ) then the focus really is the hotel here. So with mode Lytham it is less like a hotel and more like ‘rooms’ where you can check in and out / come and go without seeing anyone. Pros and cons to this and personally it doesn’t bother me. Just to be clear, the Mode Lytham DOES NOT have a bar / restaurant - it’s quite ambiguous when you read some reviews. St. Anne’s does have a bar. Anyway, check in was a little odd as contrary to what the email said the reception wasn’t manned and we had not had an email informing us of how to pick up the keys. (Which incidentally is via a coded box with the key inside). So we called the number on the door and were given clear and good instructions. So onto the room. I did pay a little more for an upgrade but I wouldn’t recommend it, looking at the map of the rooms you get on the back of the door, it was clear that our room was the smallest or certainly one of the smallest and it is small... so I don’t know what I actually upgraded to if I’m honest. Small rooms are ok, I’ve travelled a lot and spent time in small but very nice and functional rooms, this is not functional sadly. Decor wise it’s white and non offensive, white tiled bathroom etc ; all fine! However the space was so limited (room 106) that to navigate around my self and my partner had to time how and where we moved. Bathroom was a good size though ! The issue really was that there is literally nowhere to put your clothes, some hanging space above the coffee machine (yes that’s right) a very small table with the kettle etc and then a small square table by the window with little to no room to put anything else. Suitcases end up in the way as everything is ‘open’ plan so don’t bring a lot! The black out curtains don’t work - they are hung away from the wall so light comes through all around the edges from sun up. This isn’t an issue for me but is for my partner and as it’s a feature when booking it may be a factor as to why some people book. Noise? Well not from outside ! Great sound proofing but others taking a shower, going in and out and the house service cupboard being opened and closed was very noisy. Cleanliness was very good in the room but the bathroom there were a couple of hairs in the shower and water marks on the floor. 100% not ours. We didn’t get the room cleaned during our stay, though we left the sign on the door after we had left for the first day which was about 11am so I assume unless you catch them when they’re there in the morning it’s too late ~ our bins were overflowing and we ran out of toilet roll 😀had three tissues in the tissue box but fortunately there is a Sainsbury’s across the road. Do you expect to buy your own toilet roll at the"
"I have never stayed at a Mode hotel or visited Lytham before. My first point of reference for the Mode was Anna, and what a lovely speaking and helpful lady she was. My snug room was excellent, clean, modern, bright and cosy. First class shower and facilities, lots of space. Bed very comfy and again facilities first class, the lady that cleaned the rooms was also lovely and helpful with any extra milk, tea etc. For me, I was very impressed and will not hesitate to stay again. Lytham town was a gem and the hotel is perfectly placed. I would totally recommend staying at the Mode and visiting Lytham, I totally enjoyed the experience. I would further add, my review is for Lytham only, I have not visited the St Anne's Mode. For the traveller looking at the Lytham Mode, unlike some more traditional hotels, the approach is via a wide glass door sited between two business address, you then climb a few stairs into the hotel complex which is above the business's. Do NOT let this deter you, the decor and rooms are classy and comfy, its also very quiet. You will not regret choosing to stay at the Mode. However I am not aware of any alternative to accessing this Hotel, so a wheel chair bound person or someone who has difficulty with stairs, this could be an issue. This only refers to the Lytham Mode, if the St Anne's Mode does not have a stairs issue, then I would heartily recommend a stay there, I am sure the standards will be the same and its only a couple of miles down the road. As for Lytham town and sea front itself, its a really lovely place, very flat and will perhaps appeal very much to the older traveller."
"My wife and I stayed at the Mode Lytham for one night 21st September.The check in time was 2pm but we arrived around 12noon as I was concerned about parking.The entrance door was open and the lady at reception told me that our room was ready.Excellent customer service from the outset . The allocated room was beautifully finished and furnished to a high standard with an extremely comfortable bed,stocked espresso machine and various other mod cons. The communications after booking were first class with clear instructions on how to obtain access chechout etc. We parked overnight at the reccomended Diccinson car park on the sea front which is only a two minute walk. The pay and display machines were out of order but we downloaded the app and paid online, simple when you know how 🤔. This hotel is situated in a stunning location surrounded by restaurants , shops and bars. The sun was shining , the outside seating areas were buzzing and it felt like we were in another part of the world. Fantastic stay and looking forward to returning in the not so distant future."
