“Very comfortable hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Stayed over for one night after the Blackpool vs Newcastle pre-season match. Enjoyed the stay, friendly staff, comfortable room (with a fantastic aircon) & good bar/restaurant. Very reasonably priced, and in an excellent location, especially if your here for the match!

What a find! This 4-star hotel is less than a year old and everything looks – and smells, pristine. It is based actually inside Blackpool FC’s ground in Bloomfield Road and indeed, is a part of its stand. You can even get a bedroom that looks onto the pitch. How cool is that?
It is obvious that no expense has been spared in its conception with quality fixtures and fittings, super king size beds and Villeroy and Bosch toilet and basins in the en-suites.
Both the unique venue and the price (not much more than a guesthouse B&B) attracted us to the Amazon local “sampler” offer and for just £89.00 for two nights bed and breakfast for two people plus a complimentary bottle of fizz in the room, it is an absolute steal for both business and pleasure purposes. With the exception of the young waiting staff at breakfast who are obviously still learning their trade on their feet, we could not fault anything and can wholeheartedly recommend it.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a pitch side room. Even if you are not into football, it is a unique experien...

I really enjoyed my stay here and don't think I'll ever stay in what was 'my usual'. Lovely rooms nicely decorated and a fab bathroom. Staff were wonderful, gave it their all, We had brought an American exchange student who nearly flaked when he saw the view of the pitch at breakfast. Lads couldn't get WiFi in bedroom as we were so far from main hub, were offered replacement rooms which I declined as it was great to actually sit together. Well worth the cost, impressed. Didn't get to use all facilities but plan to return.

The Hotel is brand new & part of the South Stand of Blackpool FC. My stay was not in the football season. The Rooms are very well appointed & the beds extremely comfortable. Its very quiet too with only the lone seagull to break the silence. The Breakfast though good, was not served on time and some essentials such as butter, had to be requested. Dinner was good too though the menu a little limited & finished at 9.30pm. Room Service is pretty much non existent. Staff are excellent. Well worth a stay, though a little expensive & its a 20 minute walk to the main attractions.

Room Tip: Ask for Pitch view

Just spent a weekend at this hotel. In all my years of visiting Blackpool and staying in various accommodation I can honestly say this is THE VERY BEST hotel I have ever stayed in in Blackpool. Everyone from the bar staff, manager, receptionist and concierge gave 100% and were such friendly and helpful staff. I cannot give any negative feedback or advice as you simply cannot beat perfection!!

Just got back from a golfing week-end with 15 other gents and this Gem of a hotel made this a memorable and perfect week-end. The rooms were very clean and quiet and we were able to book in early and make the first tee at St Anne's on time. The staff were very polite and helpful, and Rosanne's smiling face to greet us for breakfast helped with the hang-over.
Great location, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the Blackpool front and great having a Casino next door, even if you fancy a quite drink...price very reasonable.
Looking forward to next years golf trip....wife permitting !!
