My partner and I recently stayed at the Corona during a short break along with my parents in October. I was a little bit anxious about my stay in Blackpool at first as everybody kept telling me that Blackpool had the 'tack' factor and I wouldn't like it - which also made me dread what the accommodation would be like.
On arrival Paul checked us in and made us feel very welcome. We were assisted with our luggage and showed to our room, which although one of the smaller rooms was perfectly adequate, very clean, well decorated and comfortable.
I am a very fussy eater, as well as being vegetarian and wheat intolerant and I was dreading meal times. However nothing seemed to be to much trouble, Richard cooked a special course for me every evening and always checked with me the day before as to what I would like to eat .I wasn't made to feel awkward as I have done in the past elsewhere.
The location of this hotel is ideal as it is not right on the Blackpool front, so there were no issues with noise. There was plenty of parking. About 3 min walk from the beach front and a pleasant 45 minute walk along the front to the Blackpool Tower, Madame Tussuad's, Blackpool Dungeons and Town Centre. The Pleasure beach was only 10 min walk from the hotel and we had a really good day out there. I thoroughly enjoyed my early morning runs along the front knowing I would come back to enjoy a nice breakfast!
The whole customer experience/ service was exceptional and I was very pleasantly surprised.
Although Blackpool does have some elements of 'tack' to it, we all had a fun and enjoyable time.
I would definitely return to this hotel in the future and wouldn't hesitate in recommending to others.
Many Thanks to Paul and Richard, you have changed my opinion of Blackpool and run a lovely hotel. Katherine Wheeler and Alec Baldy (Westbury Wilts)
