Not what we were expecting. Checked in here at approx 5:30 pm after a long drive down from the Scottish Highlands for one evening, and even though first impressions were good of the reception area the cleanliness and the general look of the hotel, im afriad for the sake of this review that is where the good points ended.

We are a family of 4 and stayed at this hotel for 2 nights August 21st-23rd. The hotel is situated at the bottom end of the promanade away from the attractions and shops and opposite a tram stop. On arrival I found the receptionist a little rude and we were given our key and a run down of breakfast and... More

We had our 50th Wedding Anniversary at the Carousel last weekend and many of our guests, and us, stayed in the hotel 1 and some 2 nights. Everybody was very satisfied with the service, the rooms and the breakfast and the staff themselves could not have been more attentive and helpful at all times. As far as the 50th Party... More

Bathroom was tidy and modern but shower was very cramped! Was disappointed by breakfast this morning though, we walked into the breakfast room which had loads of unoccupied but uncleared... More

We stayed at this hotel on the 17th & 18th of August. The hotel was clean but dull. The bathroom was tiny. We ate in both nights and found the food to be expensive for the size of the portions which were extremely small. It was a case of style over substance: nicely presented but very small portions.

We booked a family room as we had our 2 grandsons with us to take them to the Pleasure Beach. The room was okay but decoration and carpets were not very clean. As for breakfast, we have stayed in lots of hotels in the past and the choice for children was very limited and there was a lot of children... More

Booked this hotel because it looked modern and clean and was a little bit away from the Pleasure Beach so thought it would be quieter. There is a Car Park behind the hotel but unless you've got a monster truck that can drive over all the other vehicles to get to a space, you've got little chance of parking in... More

My wife and I stayed in the Carousel for one night in August 2014. We had booked another hotel for the following two nights, and this was to give us an extra night in Blackpool. Parking on arrival was on the road outside. We managed to find a space a short way along the road. The room was a twin... More

Hotel Class
Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The beautifully refurbished Carousel is the highest AA rated 3 star hotel in Blackpool. Situated five minutes from Blackpool Airport, we are ideally located on the South Promenade near to all of Blackpool’s attractions - but far enough away from the bustle of Blackpool's famous Golden Mile to offer a relaxing, refreshing and high quality experience. Restaurant 21 serves breakfast and dinner daily and we also have an extensive bar and room service menu which is available 24 hours. We have 22 family rooms all with DVD players and an extensive library of DVDs which are available to view with our compliments. The hotel has nightly entertainment (including children's entertainment, a pool table and children's soft play area). ... more   less
