Stayed for 2 nights with my 3 children. Room ready on arrival (we were early), great views of the pleasure beach from our room and the comfiest bed I have ever slept in! Breakfast was fanstastic, something for everyone and really relaxed, no one rushing us to finish. We will definitely be back.

My sister and I stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights during a midweek break. The booking process was easy and the price reasonable. We trawled the Internet for reviews of the hotel before booking a twin room. The reviews were favourable. We drove from the midlands to the hotel. The instructions on the website were very accurate... More

I'm a little confused by all the 5 star reviews here. We only stayed one night in Blackpool and chose to stay at this hotel based solely on the TA reviews. However, we found the quality to be the equivalent of a low budget motel in the States. We had a twin room and although it was clean and the... More

Arrived at the Hotel at 10.20am, Although we couldn't check in straight away we got parked no problem and were on the Pleasure Beach via the Hotel private entrance by 10.35am. Room was spacious with a little room set off with bunk... More

Stayed for two nights with friends/family. Arrived early but room wasn't ready so had a quick drink in the bar. Surprised by the price of drinks, 2 x peroni, 2 x Guinness, 1 glass of wine and a bottle of sparkling water was £25. When we did check in it was easy and the staff were lovely! Room was beautiful,...

Stayed for 2 nights 26 and 27 August. This was our 2nd visit to this hotel and once again it did not disappoint. Lovely room on 4th floor overlooking pleasure beach just as requested. All staff very helpful and efficient. Delicious breakfast which we chose to eat in our room (£5.00 for room service which we certainly did not mind... More

Family of four (two adults, two children 6 and 9 (one with autism)) stayed for three nights 15th August: Check-in was swift, efficient and friendly. Allocated a room on fourth floor overlooking pleasure beach. Both children loved watching the rollercoasters whizz past the window. Although it is quite a large hotel, it does not give that impression. The atmosphere is... More

Stayed at the big blue hotel for 2 nights from 12 th August. On arrival we were checked in rapidly and offered discounts on the pleasure beach and merlin attractions so these are well worth checking before booking elsewhere. There were 2 adults and 3 kids in our party and the room for us adequately. We had a bunk bed... More
