Thank you Peter and Karen for another great stay!
For all trip advisor readers I have been coming to this hotel since I was a young girl with my parents and now 35 yrs on I am still holidaying at The Kingsway Hotel. I now visit with my own family and extended family.
Hotel is located on a quiet street in a central location behind the tower. If you get to stay in one of the back rooms then you can see the tower out of your window. 5 minutes walk to main shopping centre, seafront, and amusements.
Peter and Karen are great hosts and treat everybody like they are friends and family. They have numerous repeat guests from all over the uk return every year.
The hotel rooms are very clean with white fluffy towels, tea and coffee making facilities (tea/coffee etc can be replenished from the bar in the main lounge). Each room has a tv with freeview channels. Some rooms are large family rooms or smaller double rooms. Peter will always try to accommodate you to suit your request the best he can.
Food - be prepared to put on a couple of pounds due to Peters freshly prepared home cooked meals.
Breakfast - choice of orange juice, cornflakes, Rice Krispies, frosties, fruit & fibre or grapefruit to start. Then you have the option of having a full cooked breakfast or you can have just boiled or scrambled eggs etc. the choice is yours, just let Karen know. (Karen takes your breakfast order at evening meal the night before or if you are just bed and breakfast just let her know in advance). If you don't want a full breakfast but maybe bacon and sausage this is ok too.
The good quality bacon and sausage are the best we have had. There is also fresh toast to have and Karen will keep topping you up with more if you need it.
Evening meal - choice menu which you select at breakfast on the day. Choice of starter, main course and dessert. Tea or coffee to finish your meal. All food freshly prepared by qualified chef Peter. If you have any dietary requirements these can be accommodated.
Just to note on a few previous comments, The Kingsway is a popular family hotel, and like a lot of hotels in Blackpool are older style buildings. Walls do tend to be not as thick in these buildings and you will at some point here noise from other guests, maybe the tv, or guests coming in after their morning out, toilet flushing, children crying etc. These are the norm in this type of accommodation and I personally have never stayed anywhere were we have heard no noise at all. Even 5* hotels abroad you still here noise from the next rooms.
Parking is also available at the hotel, not always on site but Peter has allocated parking slots available for use.
All in all I highly recommend this hotel to anybody wishing to stay in Blackpool. But then I suppose I am biased after being a returning guest for many years!
