Staff lovely Hotel lovely and the upgraded room lovely The scrambled eggs at breakfast time were exceptionally good Cracking view of the pleasure beach and didn't find it too noisy As we were at the very end of the hotel we wished that we could have had some kind of code to get into the door nearer us to stop...

Clean and tidy, one of the better hotels in Blackpool, bit expensive especially with kids in tow, but to be fair I would rather pay extra as this hotel is clean, staff are very pleasant except one of the breakfast staff ( tall scouser) who rushed us out as soon as we had finished. Wasn't very pleasant but we were... More

We visited the Big Blu hotel very recently with our severely disabled daughter and 2 other children. The hotel could not do enough to assist us with any additional needs. We had a family room downstairs. Our children loved the bunk beds with their own TV. These weren't working when we arrived but were fixed almost immediately. The room was... More

It was a return visit for my family. We've been staying at The Big Blue for a while now. The rooms are lovely and modern, very roomy for a family. The staff are always so welcoming and friendly. They always have a smile for you. When I arrived (a bit earlier than check-in) I wasn't very well, so the lovely... More

We've really struggled over whether to give this hotel a 3 or 4 star review, as it's better than 'average' but not 'very good'. We hope the below review explains why we settled on 3 stars. One of the reasons we chose this hotel because of it's location at the southern end of Blackpool promenade and proximity to the Pleasure... More

Stayed here over bank holiday weekend. On arrival it looked great and is probably the best hotel in Blackpool. Checking in was fine and very easy. We booked a family room deluxe and it was very nice had everything you needed. The kids bunk beds seemed pretty good with television for each. I was disappointed with the quality of the... More

We visited over a busy bank holiday weekend. The hotel was fully booked. We went as a family with two young children..11 and 9 and had a family room with bunk beds. The room was adequate and the boys loved the bunk bed area but found them very small for sleeping in. I had a broken foot and the staff... More

Stayed here for the 3rd year in a row on the Lazy Sunday DBB deal. The hotel is in the perfect place for entry to the Pleasure Beach, and having the side entrance is an added bonus, just wish you could also exit that way. We were upgraded to the delux family room, which was perfect for our needs, with... More
