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

I have just returned from this hotel having stayed two nights. On a positive it is very clean and in a great position next to the pleasure beach. However, it is overpriced and I wouldn't consider it a 4 star. The car park was full on arrival, play stations are free but games charged at £5 per night (on top... More

A great weekend break at this hotel, yes it's perhaps a wee bit more expensive than some but it's worth it. Modern, clean, fun for the kids overlooking the park! Had such fun waving at the train driver each time he passed! Ate in the hotel at night, was delicious although I have to say the drinks were pricy! £8.20... More

The parking was free and we were allowed to park on the car park before check in and even several hours after checkout. The staff on the front desk were friendly and welcoming. upon check in we were told we had been given... More

But to my surprise, it was the best stay I've ever had anywhere!! We were greeted by Edward, who was really polite and helpful, check in was easy and straight forward! Then... More

Stayed here a few times now for a weekend away with my family. The staff are very helpful and the place is spotless. It's right next to the pleasure beach and you are allowed early access to the fair if you stay here giving you an jump on the queues for the big rides. Excellent all round.
