I stayed in the Village Urban Resort in an Upperdeck deck room. The room was fairly basic. The carpet was badly stained. That aside the bed was comfortable, the room dark and quiet. The staff were helpful, cheerful and fun. I did not enjoy the choice of menu in the two eating areas. There is a pub type restaurant which... More

Spent a Friday night at the hotel with my son while we visited the Magic Convention at the Winter Gardens. I have stayed at this hotel before and the location is ideal. Set away from the centre it is located near to Stanley Park and next to Blackpool Zoo. We arrived early and left the car in the car park,... More

I was stunned to find this Hotel in Blackpool! I am so glad I did! The facilities in the Hotel are amazing - you could spend whole holiday there, but you are a 5 minute drive away from Blackpool and all the sights too.The rooms were clean and comfy, the wifi was super fast and parking is plentiful and free....

When the price is right then the Village is a good deal. Guaranteed free parking, free good wi-fi, clean comfy rooms and a full English buffet breakfast. Drinks prices are OTT and the wine with our free evening meal cost more than a night out in town. For my Wife and I it cost the same as a high end... More

Just spent the past week here on a business trip. Good location - room was very quiet,clean and well-appointed. Gym and outdoor pool/sauna hut were fantastic - enjoyed a mid-winter late evening outdoor swim in the heated pool - very atmospheric to say the least! Running track around the golf course and past the back of the zoo was very... More
