I stayed at The Baron with my partner Friday-Monday to see the illuminations in October. I use to go to Blackpool yearly but my partner had never been. It was my first stay at The Baron. After a long search on the internet The Baron was chosen for its location (nicer north end of Blackpool and seafront location). Parking was available and we selected a seaview room.
When we arrived the car park was full and there was a lot of people waiting to check in. Which was fair enough as we had arrived at check in time (2pm). The owners kindly informed us that there was another car park around the back.
We were shown to our room. The Baron has a lift but I chose the stairs as I don't like lifts. There was a lot of stairs!
The room was a double with a single bed also. En-suite toilet and shower. A lovely sea view, Ample storage, tea and coffee making facilities. The room was clean and the owners were pleasant.
The negatives for the hotel was that there was no bath mat provided so had to step out of the shower onto a cold tiled and slippery when wet floor. There were no plastic cups or glasses to rinse you mouth out with after cleaning your teeth. The opening did not close securely so on our last night when there were 60mph winds this made the room very cold and you could see the curtains moving! We were given biscuits only on the first night and they were never replenished and I remember seeing something on the website about complimentary mineral water which was not in the room.
