Booked this hotel for a weekend's break. The staff were really friendly. Great location. Wouldn't go back, the mattress on the beds were as solid as a rock, the family room was very small and very dated. No hair dryer although there was tea and coffee maker in the room. No coat hangers, bathroom was a box, mega small. No... More

Breakfast was good with a decent cooked full English, lots of cakes, yoghurt, cereals and fruits to choose from also. We had a sea view room right... More

Our Family of 15 just had a brilliant W.E. The hotel staff are very amenable and couldn't do enough to please. They were very helpful and kind. They gave us a special table to accommodate all the family for the party. They gave us an area all to ourselves for the Entertainment, which was very good..They even decorated the tables... More

The sea view room was well worth a bit extra. The staff were helpful and conscientious. The place seems really well cared for- even a cubby hole under the stairs in the dining room had been turned into a childrens area. Breakfast was very good.

OK so the rooms (especially the bathroom) needs tarting up but our stay (15th -17th Nov) was very pleasant. The service and hospitality from staff was excellent, especially the night time porter. One review mentioned that they didn't like keys being handed in every time he left the building, This is more than likely for emergency purposes, how else are... More

Stayed here for the last week of the illuminatioins and to watch my beloved football team ITFC. There is no car parking at the location which is a big disadvantage.

Built at the turn of the century this fine hotel is ideally situated on the sea front between Blackpool Tower and the Pleasure Beach with the Central Pier just yards away. The hotel offers accommodation for couples, families, singles and small groups but strictly no Stags or Hens. There is a well-established evening restaurant attached to the hotel which includes an a la carte menu and is open to the public.We provide free entertainment, bingo and quiz with a free finger buffet 6 nights per week, subject to numbers, in our cabaret bar and lounge. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel.On warm sunny days you can relax in the forecourt café/restaurant area enjoying a long cool drink and watch the world pass by. If you prefer to relax indoors our lounge offers elevated and panoramic views of the Irish Sea. During the world famous illuminations you can watch the special illuminated trams as they pass by the hotel without having to leave the comfort of your armchair.The location of the Balmoral is such that you are only a few minutes away from all the fun filled areas, the town centre for shopping, the tower headland with its comedy carpet and new wedding chapel, the tower with its new dungeon and walk of faith, Sea World and the world famous Madame Tussauds and of course the Pleasure Beach. Transport links are good with the Tram stops directly opposite us and bus stops are a few yards away enabling you to travel further afield at ease.
