Just come back from a one night stay at the so called 4 star quality 'Big Blue Hotel' in Blackpool. This hotel is not 4 star quality unless you get a free up grade to a deluxe room or pay extra to book one of these rooms when booking. I booked two so called superior doubles and was very disappointed when we got there that one of the rooms was a box standard twin that was half the size of the other room, which had its own lounge area, fire, kingsize bed etc. The twin room had two small beds, a bathroom that was meant for a disabled guest and big stains on the carpet.
Was woken up at 3.50am by drunken women just coming home, when told to keep it down they just carried on!!
Drinks in the bar are very expensive, one round of 4 drinks came to just over £14. You can RENT dvds at reception for a very expensive cost of £4 each then a cash deposit of £10!! The dvds are all old ones and when you have paid £90 for a room for the night I think that this is alittle insulting to guests.
I complained to the manager the following day and was given an apology and told that the feedback was very helpful but that was it.
In my opinion I have stayed in many hotels up and down the country and stayed in Blackpool many times and think that this hotel is over rated and over priced. Please take your time to shop around for hotels in Blackpool as you can get very nice ones for a fraction of the cost. Only well situated for the Pleasure Beach which is very easy to get to by bus, tram if you are staying in any other part of Blackpool and you are not always guaranteed a parking space in the hotel carpark.
Will not be staying again, have stayed in better Premier Hotels than this for less cost!!
