Although a bit more expensive, the Big Blue is wonderful to stay in. Just been on a long weekend with the grand kids. Very clean, exceptional staff, nothing appears to be too much trouble. Breakfast fantastic with good quality food and freshly cooked. We have stayed several times and the quality remains the same. Will be back next year.

This was the second time we,ve stayed here. A two night family break near the end of the summer hols. Place was very busy with families, especially the restaurant at breakfast time but the staff kept everyone moving and the food was good. Big rooms with armchairs and comfy bed. Very clean and reasonably stylish. Overall a good stay.

Had a one night stay on the busiest night of the year. The rooms are large and beds are massive. A lovely sitting area with fireplace makes for a relaxed stay. I would recommend the Big Blue to anyone wanting a nice place in Blackpool. Slightly more expensive but worth it in my opinion.

Our room was nice and clean, the staff were lovely and the hotel was in a great location. Other than the pleasure beach there isn't much going on around this area of Blackpool so we chose to dinner... More
